and then it becomes....... #2: behind closed doors

11-01-2008 09:23 PM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The exci...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #27: I Love When That Happens

06-30-2010 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Did you ever have a day where everything just falls into place and things turn out the way they are supposed to? I love those days. It isn’t that the other days are a disaster or anything, but looking back I can honestly say that it was definitely a good one. Not only did I accomplish what I set out to do, but unexpectedly, I liked the result much better than I thought I would. After writing yesterday morning, I set out to fine tune the patterns for the two Christmas candy dishes...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #807: Doing the Math

09-04-2012 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I must admit it isn’t one of my strong points. For as long as I remember, I really don’t like doing numbers. I suppose that I get by well enough. After all, I have made it through over half a century and done OK. But being a small business owner and watching the business grow means that it is no longer optional to stay on top of the figures and keep track of things along the way. After all, how can I make intelligent business decisions if I don’t have full and accurate...

Part 3 - Project update Electric is just about done and equipment is placed.

02-19-2012 04:31 PM by sandhill | 0 comments »

Two of the videos I posted here I go back and watch over and over because of the insperation they give me, hope you find them that way as well. I am posting two links, one not related to this Blog but worth posting for wood workers about a company that builds furniture with the most intricate joinery I have ever come across. The second is the link to a video on WoodTrek about the bench I mention in the video. Pat 4 should be read in week or two. http://woodtreks.com/design-build-tr...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

12-24-2013 04:55 AM by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

Yo whats up everybody so I got a call from my grand mother in Detroit and she asked me if I could make some crosses for her. My grand father is a priest in Detroit and she needed some for sunday school so I said ok how many you need and she was like 150 now it takes me about 5 minutes to make 2 crosses because I cut it in half. That includes cutting out the pattern and sanding it and staining it now I have already finished about 50 and they need them by September so I hurry up. I get about 3...

Summer Happenings

06-30-2010 02:30 PM by rando1 | 8 comments »

Well, As I sit in my air conditioned office, I am already dreading that hot job site that awaits us! We have moved out from the shop in the past few weeks and are on two sites that involve custom Trim work and built-ins. The problem is…IT IS HOT…and only June! The area we live in is normally very uncomfortably hot, but it has started early this year. Currently we are working on a large home on one of the resort islands. It doesn’t have the air working as of now. What...
