Just hit the mother load of lumber

07-19-2015 01:17 AM by Todd Swartwood | 10 comments »

I have not had much time to share anything going on in my woodworking life lately. My wife and I purchased a 15,000 sqft building about 3 1/2 years ago. So far the building houses a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom apartment we live in currently, and my shop at about 3200 sqft. We are turning one 2200 sqft section of the building into a Gluten Free Bakery my wife will run, as she is a master baker. Anyway I am making hardwood flooring for the Bakery and the area directly above the bakery that will become...

PVC Dust Collection Blast Gate - self cleaning design with a detent feature

02-17-2015 05:23 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/ACLFMAfV1fk I recently added a Clearvue Cyclone dust collector to my shop. I plumbed it completely with 6” and 4” PVC piping. I needed a way to close off each branch to maximize the performance of the dust collector. Commercially available plastic blast gates are way to cheap and clog easily. The metal blast gates that solve this issue are p...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1493: Working Weekend

02-09-2015 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I didn't post this weekend because I was in the middle of several different projects. We are hoping to do our site update this week and I had some ideas for new scroll sawing patterns that I wanted to work on. I did that along with working on painting the first piece of furniture that Keith built for our reorganizing project. If you remember, the first  piece was a printer stand that would also hold the bodies of our two computers and also the modem and router: Since this is ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1492: Organizational Project 2015 - Phase 1

02-06-2015 01:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Organization is an ongoing process. You don't just organize things once it seems. I have come to that realization as I think back on how many times I have blogged about making our small place here more efficient and organized. I have been writing for nearly five years now (I think!) and it seems that every year around this time we always come up with new and improved ways to make working from our home here not only more efficient, but more aesthetically pleasing as well. After all &#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1475: Busy with "Business"

01-13-2015 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days that seemed to be over before it began. It seemed like the every day business tasks (answering emails, filling orders, talking to customers) filled the majority of the time. Before I knew it, it was getting dark and I was running out of steam.  I am not at all complaining about this, as I realize it is part of having a business that is successful, but I am afraid it doesn't make for much interesting blog reading for you. So I decided to show...

Wood Gloat

01-09-2015 02:19 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I was able to connect with a local cabinet shop and they will give me all of their drop-offs I want. Now it will mostly be Baltic birch plywood and oak (for face frames). My wife says, “you don’t use that type of wood”. I am going to rethink some things and see if there is an area to use some or all of this. One area I sell to is the senior market. It will be great to product items for this market and sell at a low price. More on this operation later.

Cherry File Cabinet #3: Box Joints (or how not to make a plywood box)

12-30-2014 12:22 AM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Ok, so the carcass (correct term?) of the file cabinet is all glued up and came out really nice. I have a few touch ups with a sanding block to do. I set off this morning in search of decent 1/2” plywood to make the two drawers. I ended up driving 1/2 an hour into town to Rockler to pickup a sheet of 1/2” Baltic Birch and some 1/4” for the bottoms, along with some satin Arm R Seal. Made a side trip on the way home to Lowes to spend the gift cards that were burning a ho...

Getting into the YouTube game

12-29-2014 05:10 PM by BenhamDesign | 6 comments »

It seems that everybody has a YouTube channel. Well I decided to get into the game myself. My mother bought me a GoPro camera for Christmas. I`m sure she is hoping I will shoot some video of her grand kids for her. Which of course I will, but trying to keep up with a 7 and 10 year old is a lot of work, so I decided to take it into the shop and try my hand at shooting some woodworking videos. This 1st video is a fairly simple build so I could figure out how to work the camera into my wo...
