My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1477: New Scrollsaw Patterns

01-17-2015 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems like forever since I designed a woodworking pattern. With all the new directions that I have been working in (not to mention the holidays!) there were several other deadlines that I needed to meet in other areas of my business. I try to do as much as I can with each part of the business – both painting and scroll sawing – but now that the magazine that I worked with for the last 15 years is no longer there, other things have taken its place as far as my time goes.&nb...

bench vice and starting out

04-21-2014 11:21 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

Neck Thru V Guitar

03-07-2010 03:12 PM by lugnut | 12 comments »

Well, I bit the bullet and purchased some equipment. I got an 8” jointer/planer combo from Jet and a 9” bandsaw from Skil. Probably none the best stuff, but live and learn. My goal here is to develop my woodworking skills to a higher level concentrating on guitar construction. The task at hand is to plane the wings to the same thickness as the neck. The wings are basswood and I’m thinking I should just get them ‘close’ to leave a little room for sanding. W...

Just for Fun... #31: It ain't Z Z Top...

09-02-2010 11:27 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

...But she’s got Legs!!Yesterday was a really good day!! My objective for the day, was to put some legs on this small table I’m building… Of course, I have no clue how to do that correctly, but nonetheless I proceeded… My vision was to have the legs splay out slightly, not only from side to side, but from front to back. First, I checked visually what angle looked appealing, and determined that a conservative 6° was in order… The number, shall be six…Began b...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

07-21-2014 12:40 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...
