Craftsman Tablesaw tune-up #3: Progress has been made

04-18-2015 05:01 AM by B4B | 0 comments »

Update – With Pictures! So I ran into a problem with the original Shop Fox fence I ordered. No matter what I did to try and get it aligned it was toed into the blade. I called up technical support at Grizzly (after waiting on hold for about 30 minutes) they issued an RMA and exchanged the whole unit no questions asked. Once I get some hands-on time with this fence I’ll post a review of my initial impressions. . but it is definitely an upgrade to the original crappy fence tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1537: Learning from Mistakes

04-15-2015 10:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I always find it amazing how quickly things can go from uncertainty to progress.Only a few short hours ago, I was somewhat stuck – paralyzed and afraid to move forward with things for fear of mucking things up and failing. I was thinking about several things at once on this project, as there are many things that need to be worked out. Not only the design of it, but also the construction. I had been looking at the big picture all at once, and by doing so, it appeared to be very complicat...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1536: #1536 Making Progress

04-14-2015 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be quick.  (Really!)  Yesterday, as with many Mondays, I had a lot of 'odds and ends' to do to get my week started. I didn't really sit down to draw until later in the day, and while that was all well and good, I don't have much more to show you.  Add to that, I got up late today (around 8am – YIKES for me!) but since I was drawing until about 11:30 last night, I feel that my time was not wasted and I am kind of on a roll. It's al...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

My first lap steel guitar

04-13-2015 07:58 PM by YorkshireStewart | 11 comments »

This dirty, heavy unidentified board had been kicking around for some years.. ..imagine my delight when I ran a plane over it and found this lovely lacewood: I scaled up from a photograph of a Moog lap steel. Imitation is, after all the sincerest from of flattery! Bandsawn to rough shape and tidied up on the bobbin sander. Rough planed to 1.5” and sanded through the trusty shop-made thicknesser: Routed out for wenge inlays: Inlays glued in and ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1535: Creating for the Sake of Creating

04-13-2015 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

As a designer, I have many (many) ideas for new projects. I am fortunate in that I keep my eyes open and by merely observing things around me in the world, I find lots of sources of inspiration. I am not always sure how this process works, as some days I am overflowing with ideas and others it just seems that nothing makes sense or wants to fall into place. Much of my designing process is 'automatic' and I sometimes forget just how to go about things when I am in a lull. Many projects...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #4: The reveal

04-13-2015 07:35 AM by GCM | 5 comments »

The finished project: The finish on this project is shop made country/shabby chic using chalk paint made from cheap flat ceiling paint tinted with even cheaper poster paints, mixed with not-so-cheap calcium carbonate, and shop made finishing past wax made from a chunk of bees wax and boiled linseed oil. One coat of Ivory chalk paint, 2 coats of Cyan chalk paint (first coat epic fail due to miscalculation of amount required), and 2 coats of finishing wax after sanding and distressing. ...
