My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1486: My Art Play Date Projects DONE!

01-30-2015 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is with much relief that I am writing this morning. It isn't usual that I get stressed out over doing a project, but these past few weeks have been somewhat worrisome to me. I mentioned the other day that I was invited to participate in the Art Play Date online class event, and while I was thrilled to be asked to teach, I was somewhat intimidated. After all, the line up of teachers included many teachers that I have followed and admired since I began painting. These were what we c...

Why buy it when you can make it! #28: Doll House [Part 1] - My wife asked if I wanted to do any woodworking this past weekend

12-29-2014 05:09 PM by paxorion | 0 comments »

We’ve had unseasonably nice weather in my neck of the woods this past weekend. After a few days of family time and activities for Christmas, my wife asked me if I was going to take advantage of the nice weather this past Saturday to get some woodworking done. Since she offered, I couldn’t refuse and wanted to come up with a project to work on. On Saturday morning, I asked my daughter (she’s 3) what she wanted me to make her, and she said a wooden cutting board. I thoug...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

A Sliding Door #6: On the glue

11-08-2014 01:41 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

Started the glue-up yesterday, finished it today. Yesterday: I started by checking the fit for all the pieces. First up, the panels. And they don’t fit, which was expected. The groove has round ends while the panel is square: A few ways to fix this, but I picked up the mortise chisel and mallet to square off the ends of the grooves. The panels fit now The panel was a pretty tight fit, but I can address that later. Glued tenons into the first rail And then the rail into...

A Sliding Door #5: Grooving the panels

11-06-2014 05:19 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

When I got up this morning, Spawn had coughed up a hairball overnight. Right in front of my coffee station. I think he knows I’m writing about him. The next step in the door build was the panels. First making the panels and then cutting grooves into the rails and stiles to accept the panels. The panels are 1/2” MDF. I’ll spare the reader the details on cutting the sheet down. Suffice it to say, I’ve got 5 identical panels sized to fit their openings. I decided...

Router Table & Unit #2: Frame for Router Box

10-30-2014 02:26 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So I used 2×1 poplar to frame out where I will house the router.. I will be using 3/4 MDF .. That’s next I will need to custom cut the MDF to fit and I’m just praying that I put the frame pieces in the right place so support the MDF and that it also looks symmetrical as Dara’s where the drawers will be going on the sides!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1407: Not Quite "Time Off"

09-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I suppose I need to reevaluate my definition of the meaning of having 'time off'. While I had a wonderful weekend, I had intended to take a couple of "me" days and just putz around the house here and do some things completely for myself. I also wanted to catch up on a couple of things like bringing out the autumn decorations (we don't have many, but I like them anyway) and changing my all season tree to a cool Halloween theme. After all, we are now into the last week of ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1400: These Boots are Made for Stylin' !

09-11-2014 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had an incredibly busy but rewarding day yesterday. I missed writing here, not because I had nothing to show, but because I had an early dentists appointment and had to be out of the house really early. I never realize the time that it takes to write here every day (between preparing the photos, posting and the actual writing) until I need to get a post done in a hurry. It just doesn't happen. So I thought that I would just skip a day and catch up today.  I am happy to say that I e...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #1: HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization

08-18-2014 03:02 PM by Morton WoodWorks | 9 comments »

I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...

Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 1 comment »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...
