My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1792: Finished the Pumpkin and Started Something New

10-21-2016 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is already past my 'normal blog time' this morning, so I will get right down to business. I am figuring out that sometimes we need to sacrifice chit-chat for quality content. While I like to sit and muse about the day, my plans and life in general with you all, I am finding that sometimes it is best if I just get to what I want to do and talk about it a little less.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1791: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like (Kim) Christmas

10-20-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I have always been one of those designers that loves to work on designs from others that I admire. I can't help it. I see something that someone else creates that 'speaks to me' and I can't help but try to make the time to create it. I look at it as helping support the industry that I love so much. It also gives my brain a rest and keeps me feeling like I am having fun. After all – I believe that enjoying what I am doing is linked in a big part to the amount of success t...

Pine Auger bit box #4: Page two.

10-20-2016 01:56 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Since this is supposed to open like a large book. Back page has been finished up. I placed a blank in the clamps this morning for the second page. Added the outsides on the bottom page.. Only need three pieces, this time. Page one did need some slots made, though.. Because there needed to be a way to lift a bit up out of the holder. Backsaw to define the slot. chisel to chop it out.. Then marked the side pieces for height, and saw them to size. Had to keep track of which se...

Veteran's Day Build #1: Flattening the Slab and Layout

10-18-2016 02:39 PM by JustinTyme | 5 comments » I have begun to create a couch table that will be donated to a Veteran this year. It is being crafted from a spalted Elm live edge slab. It will have two trapezoid flat metal legs. There will be five inlayed military challenge coins in the top and will be finished with a clear pour top. I will be adding pictures to this blog post, if I ever figure out how that process works. :p

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...
