My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1209: Two New Projects on the Go

237 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You know you have a pretty good life when you wake up in the morning and there are so many (good!) things that you need to do that you don’t know what to begin with. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me lately. It seems that more so than ever I have more ideas and projects in my head than time. And that is a wonderful feeling. After taking my week or so off from designing, I find that more so than ever I just can’t wait to get back at it. Even though...

Saw vise build

239 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...

Finished the replacement spindle in time for Christmas

240 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago, I asked about fitting a replacement spindle into an old rocker without disassembling it. Here’s how it went: I took a picture of the spindle next to the missing one with my tape measure held along side it. This gave me a scale that I could duplicate by printing the picture out so the dimensions matched. I printed two copies, took one and cut it out completely to tape it to the tool rest on the lathe. The other one I took measurements at critical points with my calipe...

Adirondack Chairs #3: Project completed.

245 days ago by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

So I’m FINALLY finished with this project and it feels like it took forever. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t had nearly as much time as I would have liked in the shop. I’m not sure if that’s just life or the holiday season, but it doesn’t look like the activity is going to let up in the next few months… In the last entry, I showed offed the jigs I had built to help with the taper cuts and creating the 14” radius cut in the back sl...

Like opening a Christmas present

253 days ago by jasonallen | 2 comments »

Awhile back i cut down some oak trees for a friend. I took the firewood for myself and we loaded up the trunks on a 2 ton truck and hauled them to a mill for his personal use. When I recently started my own little woodshop he gave me some of that lumber to get started with. Since we are all natural born tightwads around here he gave me the worst bottom of the barrel lumber out of the whole bunch. But I’m not complaining about free material. Today I decided to see what I could get o...

bowed table top

254 days ago by brucebaird1 | 3 comments »

I am making a small (36”x32”) art table for a young grandchild. I bought kiln and air dried oak and used biscuit joinery to make the table top. It was dead flat after joining and glue up and remained dead flat until yesterday when I brushed a coat of primer in preparation of painting a gloss acrylic finish. This morning I put 2 coats of the gloss paint on the top and tonight when I was going to put the finish coat on I noticed that the top has bowed significantly (1/2 to 3/4 inch)...

With Christmas right around the corner I had to try to finish this wine rack in the middle of a couple of other projects going on. I got it finished though, ahead of schedule so that is always good. Check out the video here.

Just for Fun... #81: Woodworking on the Back Burner...

265 days ago by littlecope | 26 comments »

After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work! And after searching around in the available jobs, I was lucky enough to find Work in the finest Hospital in N.H., the Catholic Medical Center of Manchester…It seems that their Cafeteria was only open for the first and second shifts, and their third shift employees had been requesting “Hot Food” for some time… A decision was made, and the Cafe is now open for them with yours truly ...
