My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1215: Fin.

234 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I made the best of yesterday and surprisingly got a bit accomplished. The five little bunnies are hippity-hopping their way to New Jersey to the offices of Creative Woodworks and Crafts to be photographed for their article. I lovingly packed them and their carrots up and I HOPE they all arrive safely. We shall see . . . I also finished up the transformation of the “Ugly Box Project” that I started over the weekend. I want to emphasize that what is important when doing proje...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1211: Box Transformation Using Chalky Finish Paint

238 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What began as a storage solution turned into quite an interesting project. All weekend I was thinking of the phrase “necessity breeds invention” as I worked on the storage box for my new line of paints. On Friday, I received a shipment from DecoArt of their new Chalky Finish paint. This is a totally new line of high-adhesion paint that has a beautiful, soft matte finish that is becoming very popular. Many people are working with flea market finds and pieces of old furniture ...

Sawstop Contractor Mobile Base for 36" T-Glide Rails

239 days ago by Sk1pp3r | 7 comments »

So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1209: Two New Projects on the Go

240 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You know you have a pretty good life when you wake up in the morning and there are so many (good!) things that you need to do that you don’t know what to begin with. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me lately. It seems that more so than ever I have more ideas and projects in my head than time. And that is a wonderful feeling. After taking my week or so off from designing, I find that more so than ever I just can’t wait to get back at it. Even though...

Work Station #1: Part 1

257 days ago by christenite | 3 comments »

I recently inherited my grandpa’s vintage 10” craftsman table saw. It had a broken fence and was on a wobbly metal cart that had been pieced together. I have no idea honestly if he ever ripped anything more than 3-4” on it because of the fence. Anyways, the saw runs great and I want to put it to good use. Some of the problems presenting me were: 1) Saw will be in a garage shared with other stuff2) The stand and fence needed to be replaced3) My young kids play in the garag...

Shop Air Cleaner #2: Almost Done

261 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

I painted the whole thing bright yellow. If I knock my head on it, its my own fault. I glued and nailed strips (1” wide) on all four-sides to create tracks for the filters. There are two sets, the first is for a cheap filter and the second is for a higher quality filter. A quick 5/8” hole in the ceiling allowed for the 12 gauge extension cord to enter the box. I spliced the cables and attached the neutral wire inside the box and put the ground and line wires through the gang...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #12: Grinder Stand or Piece of Furniture?

276 days ago by PhilBello | 0 comments »

Having a shortage of bench space, I decided that I needed to create a space for the bench grinder, and not wanting to damage any walls in the apartment, I decided a dedicated Grinder Stand was called for, but not away floor storage space. After hunting for a while, I found what I was looking for on Woodstore.net it hardly reduced the floor space at all. To make this you only need half a sheet of 3/4” plywood, I used pine, as it was cheaper, and some scraps of birch ply for the top...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #10: Remove those loose cables from the floor.

280 days ago by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I’m not sure why it is, that those simple things that make life easier always seem to take a back seat, I am in the enviable position that because I only have my micro-workshop, I can spend my time making some of the things I would probably never get around to otherwise. One of the things that surprised me here in Colombia, is the apparent inability to be able to buy a reel cable, they only seem to sell extension cables ‘loose’, you can buy a reel separately (a small vers...
