Intarsia Draft Hoarse

03-29-2014 04:39 AM by bfairok | 0 comments »

Yes I did use a pattern gotten out of one of the recent ScrollSaw Magazines. Made 2 copies of overall pattern, one to use as a guide when placing the cut pieces together and keeping them in order, the other to make numerous copies on my home printer to attach to the selected woods by using clear shelf paper with glue on one side found at Home Depot. These then are cut out to match any adjoining piece and placed on my master copy. Once completed with cut outs, creat the different depths you...

Building a Computer Desk - The great design process.

10-09-2013 11:50 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I woke up one day last week and decided I wanted a new computer desk. First order of business was the planning process. A cup of coffee and five minutes later and that arduous task was complete: It’ll be about yea wide, so tall, and will use that common cherry with all the black sap that I need to get rid of. It seems a bit vague now, but it looked exactly like what I wanted in my mind. I started with four legs, but had no 8/4 cherry and 4/4 looked too thin so I used a lock-miter bit...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1148: Different Finishes on My Key Ornaments

10-08-2013 11:14 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was filled by doing lots of odds and ends. Among other things, I was trying to get some planning done for our upcoming trip to Chicago. I haven’t mentioned it much because things have been so up in the air about everything that it has seemed like things have changed every five minutes. It is a little unsettling to say the least. Add to that the issues with my car. It is nothing that I would consider to be “major”, but nonetheless it is a ten year old car with...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1146: New Saw - New Projects

10-06-2013 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

I had planned on finishing up my drawings for the next design that I am sending to the magazine yesterday. But with that new saw sitting in the corner there just BECKONING to me, there was no way that I could NOT spend some time on it! I suppose that one good thing about owning your own business is that you get to decide what needs to be done (and when!) So much of what we self-employed people do is self-goverened. (Humm . . . could that be why so many self-employed people aren’t su...

I have over the past few weeks been able to start taking some overstock merchandise, merchandise that the customer either forgot about or didn’ t have the funds to pay after the customer used the companies sharpening service. Some of the blades, router bits and some shaper bits , I will be keeping for my self but, to be albe to buy more I have to sale items I don’t normally use or if there is way more of an item or group of items than I can use myself. This is one of those time. ...

Southwest end tables #8: Top levelled and ready for the sides.

09-29-2013 01:02 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 11 comments »

Howdy, Not much time for woodshop lately but I have been able to put a little time in here and there. Today was about 4 hours. Here is where I’m at. I did some hand planning to get it in earshot range. I used a stiff metal yardstick like a scree to reveal high spots. Len – listen up please. I grabbed a card scraper and took down some of the ridges left by the planning. I know I need to keep working on the scraper edge. I ended up using the ROS after my hands got tired...

Southwest end tables #5: Started the second table.

09-20-2013 01:18 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I thought I’d be a little more detailed about my Southwest tables with this blog. Lessons learned, Lessons still learning. Yep. You might find it handy. What I don’t have is a thickness planner, a workbench or a joiner. Great fun huh? Here is the first one in progress. Still haven’t added shellac up to this point. For starters, I built up a good sturdy substrate. I used 1, 2 foot by 4 foot piece of birch 1/2 inch plywood from Home Depot. I think it came ...

Sprint to Finish #4: finishing things

09-15-2013 06:18 PM by Chris Cook | 1 comment »

I selected a small piece of highly figured padauk for the front feature and remade it to my scratch trial dimensions: After a few hours of sanding I was ready for finishing in tung oil: I used three sessions for 3 coats of tung oil lightly sanding in between. My plans for the bottom surfaces for everything was velvet glued down. this comes down to a nice fit for the velvet cuts. I decided to find a use for the old pink printer paper we had and used it to cut templates...
