Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #70: Thanks For The Great Responses Yesterday

08-12-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Well, after reading all the responses from yesterday’s post it really did bring home the fact that I do need to get moving more. When I used to live in the town of Digby, a little over a year ago, I did walk just about every day. Even if it was a short walk to the post office and back it got me out and stretched. I did take my walk here yesterday. The 2km loop around the river. It took well under an hour and I think it will be a nice start to doing something along that line every...

The Hutch #1: Making a hutch for the Kitchen...

08-12-2010 05:33 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

Wife and I make a design and I am tasked with making a hutch for the kitchen It will be in two parts (as the item it replaces is just a kinda sideboard with a few drawers and a lone shelf behind a door. This should be a huge improvement (casue she designed it and as long as I stick to the design I cannot go wrong!). The bottom half started with a lot of web surfing and finally an order from “OSBORN” woodworks they make a crap load of turned junk and other architectural ite...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #66: The Same Thing Can Be Very Different

08-08-2010 02:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It’s funny how you can take the same thing and make it look so completely different. I guess that I why I like painting so much. Even though I do appreciate the beauty of the natural colors of wood, there are times when it just isn’t possible or practical to use natural and exotic wood. My friend Cari and I used to have a lumber yard nearby when we lived in Oak Lawn, a suburb of Chicago. This was back when I had just started to scroll saw, as Cari and her father are the ones ...

Random shop notes #3: Now I know.

08-05-2010 02:36 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

That I can afford to get the electrical work I want done. Gonna run me about $350-400 bucks. And we set the date to move the table saw in – it’ll be arriving on Monday the 9th, and needs a whomp-load of work. It’s an old Delta/Rockwell 10” Homecraft, and is showing it’s age. I’ll have to wait until I get it in the shop to see how much re-furb it needs. I’ve just barely got room for this machine – it’s going to have to go on ca...

Random shop notes #2: Other people working.

08-04-2010 11:22 PM by AnnaEA | 0 comments »

Today’s been a day of other people working—I had a guy from the community maintenance staff looking at my down spouts, and there will be an electrician coming in a couple of hours to give me an estimate of what it’ll cost to run a couple of dedicated circuits for my shop and tell me if I need a sub panel or not. That’s right – my 84 square foot patch of the basement is going to get all gussied up with some dedicated circuits! One for lighting and charging un...

Random shop notes #1: Puttering.

08-04-2010 04:07 AM by AnnaEA | 3 comments »

Puttered around in the shop space for a little while tonight. Got the chunk of wood out of my vise, and gave both vises a quick inspection and spray of wd-40. Took a few measurements for the space plan. Got rid of some junk. The plumbing stack is a 4 inch pipe, ten inches away from the rear wall, and 34 inches away from the side wall. I rolled my big tree trunk round over behind it. I think I could put the drill press stand to one side of the stack, and a shelving/storage uni...

Impossible II

08-03-2010 06:39 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hi everyone. Here is the method for making the Impossible II. Before we start I didn’t take any photos during the build for this one. I needed to concentrate full time on it and taking pics can be distracting. The CAD drawings provided here should do the job . I’ve seen Steve (spalm) use this sort of thing to great effect. I’m not giving exact sizes, you can scale things off of the pics. This will give you the angles too, mostly 60°. First the complete pattern You ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #60: What To Do Next?

08-02-2010 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

You know you are getting older when you have to recoup from the weekend. Not because you were doing any wild partying or anything like that. Just because you were active and busy and there didn’t seem to be a moment to spare. What fun though! Yesterday was another great day. I spent the morning and early afternoon catching up on housework and preparing the food I was bringing to the cookout. I finished the majority of what I wanted to do before we left. We had a really nice visi...
