My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

Why buy it when you can make it! #26: Too many cutting boards...

11-30-2014 01:56 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

We had a slight break in the cold weather in my neck of the woods, so I ducked outdoors to do a bit of sanding of the cutting boards my wife asked me to make as Christmas presents for several of her family members. The router bit I used for my router sled left a bit of a mangled surface on the 3 end-grain cutting boards, so armed with a brand new Ridgid belt sander, I got to work with some cautious sanding. I can’t say I’m too experienced with a belt sander, so I am rather pro...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Built In Closets #7: Getting the room ready - demo, patch, paint

11-14-2010 09:43 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Now that the towers are built, I am ready to fix up the closet. First of all get everything out and pile it all over the house: Then pull out the remaining wire shelves These things leave a nasty hole when extracted All done Remove baseboards using prybar and try to avoid leaving holes likes these. I usually put a metal putty knife against wall where I insert prybar and this is why: After a quick trip to Lowe’s to buy a patching kit. Patch the h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #796: Working . . .

08-21-2012 10:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like I worked all day and still didn’t finish. I wonder where the day went. I suppose when looking back, I did accomplish quite a bit, but I wish that I could have finished cutting out the ornaments for the next project. Before cutting, I needed to do some final ‘tweaking’ of the line work so that everything would be able to be cut without falling apart. In between that, there were other things to do and it was nearly 4pm by ...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Been a while

08-23-2012 08:58 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve had any updates. I’ve been very busy. The cabs have been installed minus doors and drawer fronts. Toe kick and drawers are in, so the kitchen is now usable. Here’s a few picks of the some of the upper doors before finish. I’m actually in the process of finishing the doors as I type. Maybe in a week or so I can post some pics of the cabs on the down hill side.

100+ year old hard maple roots #1: 100+ year old hard maple roots

08-28-2007 06:05 PM by Splinters | 5 comments »

Was fortunate enough to have someone come up to me at the Farmer’s Market and say: “I am having my sidewalk redone and they had to cut roots out to make room for the new walk. The workers are just going to haul them to the dump. Would you be interested in taking them and see what you can do with them? Of course I jumped at the chance not knowing what I was going to end up with. I didn’t get any before photos but this is what it looked like after we cut them: Second root ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

In the Classroom: You, Too, Can Be Self-Employed, version 2009

05-06-2009 10:14 PM by Jay Neale III | 4 comments »

Every year my beautiful wife, Debra, takes me to school to present a talk to her reading classes at Alvarado Junior High. This talk began, in 2004, with me telling the kids all about being a graphic artist and how important reading is in that job. Since I began doing this I have stopped being a graphic artist and started being a woodworker. So, last year, I changed the talk, splitting the time between one job and the other. Since last year my business started taking off, so this year I...

Hello fellow sawdust-heads. Three lovely ladies ready to ship out in a few days. Thought you might like to see them. There are more pictures on my Facebook page. The two outer rockers are walnut, and the middle one is Tiger Maple (the quilting is awesome, even though the picture doesn’t show it). Cheers!
