My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #326: I Finished My New Project!

05-01-2011 02:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day on many levels. The weather was nearly perfect. The sun was shining and it was warm enough for a light jacket. I even had the top down on the car when I made a trip to the grocery store. It is amazing how getting outside for a while can do wonders for your mood. Even if it is a short time. I definitely had “spring fever!” However, there was work to be done and I was also excited about seeing my latest project come to life. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #324: Still Learning

04-29-2011 02:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I awoke at my usual six a.m. this morning, only to come out on the couch and promptly fall asleep while cuddling my dear kitty Richard. Now I am slightly behind in doing what I wanted to do. Oh, well. I suppose it happens to everyone from time to time. The previous night was restless because I was worrying about my friends so I suppose that I am making up for it. I heard from both Bob (Grizzman) and Leldon yesterday and I was very relieved that neither of them or their families were ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #321: I Need Some Advice from You

04-26-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

OK, now it is my turn to have the questions. I know there are many seasoned woodworkers out there that will hopefully be able to help me with this: What do I do to get the dark, moldy-looking streaks out of oak? I did my usual of Googling it, and most of the responses said to use some bleach, but I don’t want to ruin the natural color of the oak or have it blotchy or streaky. Let me tell you more about the wood: I have a couple of boards, let’s say half an inch thick an...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #318: New Project Finished

04-23-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Throughout the week of still catching up and making videos and probably thinking a bit too much, I did manage to complete my first project(s) for my submissions to the magazine for their Holiday issue. Last year I was fortunate enough to have several different projects and ornaments accepted. Between my partner Keith and myself we were well represented. I believe that it was my all time high as far as number of projects published with four. This year because of many reasons, I am only ...

Chevy II; The Canadian Cousin #1: Garry Oak Slabs to Basic Framework

04-16-2011 03:01 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

I’ve already blogged my AZ chevalet so this will be a simple “keep you up to date” one about “Chevy II”. When I moved to my current address and built my shop I was fortunate enough to run into a fellow who was moving and had to sell his hoard of local hardwoods. Long story short, I bought two heaped pickup truck fulls of a variety of local hardwoods, all two or more years air dried, for $200 and he helped me move it. I’m not usually a big Oak fan but as ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #2: Routing Template, Sanding

04-12-2011 08:07 AM by superstretch | 2 comments »

Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...
