My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #76: Fretwork Cross Candle Tray and Charms

08-18-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

After the initial delay of the morning yesterday, things went pretty well. The power remained on and as I understand it, it was out all the way to town for the time that it was. Although it remained overcast for most of the day, the misty rain subsided and by the time in needed to do the quick routing on the candle tray, the pavement was even dry. Things went very well. Since I changed my router bit, I have had little problem with burning. Apparently the dull bit was the culprit, and I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #75: Back to the Drawing Board!

08-17-2010 02:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It turned out to be quite a productive day after all. It feels good to be back in the swing of things. There is something that I find quite comforting in following a routine and it was great to feel ‘normal’ and productive again. The welts are all but gone from the bites on me and I no longer feel need for the medicine (although after finding the proper one, it wasn’t as much of an issue) My it was cool yesterday. It remained slightly overcast all day and it felt so muc...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #74: The Reality of a Crippled Economy Hits Home

08-16-2010 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Well, another weekend has passed and another Monday is here. It all goes by so quickly it seems. Especially with the silliness of last week. It seems that I spent most of Saturday catching up with the regular chores and yesterday just flew by. We went to our friends out by a lake and the weather was perfect and we had a nice afternoon. I got home by 9pm but was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open so I called it an early night. Today I got up early and am ready to start a product...

First logging/milling project

08-16-2010 02:52 AM by RJS | 2 comments »

This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago. My Dad Decided to take all of the limbs off of the tree and possibly have it milled into lumber. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice on how to choose a saw mill? How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...

Solid Pine 2x12 Speaker Cabinet #1: The Plan

08-16-2010 01:47 AM by Michael J. Moore | 6 comments »

I plan on building a 2×12 speaker cabinet to mate with my most current tube amplifier build. My 4th son is due tomorrow so I will be on leave for the next few weeks and I’m hoping, on my free time, to get some pictures of my progress posted and walk through the process via these blogs. Next Post: The Design

Mounting Live Edge Turning

08-14-2010 07:39 PM by scrappy | 11 comments »

Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece. When starting your tun, you can use a turning plate or chuck to hold the bottom and turn the outside and inside. But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the WoodTurnersCatalog.com Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...

Project SC #5: The long and winding road

08-14-2010 07:05 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

Hello all. The first order of the day was to route the bottom pieces and the lipping slots in the inner sides OH! Problem. The lipping slots go right through the corner posts. I should have routed before I put these on. No matter there’s always the spare stock I always make. I cut the old posts off. Finish sanded and sealed the insides of all four sides and the top. As for the corner posts I made and glued new ones on. I made a bottom out of 3mm birch ply and glued ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #72: The Two Choices are 'Scratch' or 'Sleep'

08-14-2010 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, yesterday was pretty much a wash. I went to the pharmacy in the morning to get something to deal with the bites and the pharmacist said “Wow. Those look bad” (no kidding) He gave me some cortisone cream and told me that pretty much my only option was Benedryl. He said that it should clear them up in a few days. I told him that it really made me sleepy, but he said there was really nothing else that would help. So I came home and put the creme on right away and held o...
