My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1429: Busy Times

10-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the holidays quickly approaching, I can see all of my creative friends kicking things into high gear. Many people are not only doing items for craft shows, but also for thie own holiday gift giving. I find that more people are looking to make gifts rather then buy them from the store. This is great news for designers and crafters alike, as not only does it keep us busy, but it helps perpetuate our hobbies and small businesses as well. Yesterday I didn't get as much as I would ha...

Shop Storage

10-22-2014 01:21 AM by Todd Swartwood | 5 comments »

I have been in my new shop a little over a year now, but it seems to have a mind of its own.I have been rearranging equipment and adding new storage. Most all of the Items are close to finished, Most of the shop cabinets still need drawer faces. I am quite happy with the way they are working out. My main bench has a 5” thick maple top, with a Chestnut base cabinet. Also directly behind my main work area are my Tool Chest, and my Cutter storage/hardware storage Chest. As well as st...

starting my new passion #1: New to woodworking, looking for advise

10-21-2014 03:41 AM by Gwjames | 3 comments »

Ok, so I am new to wood working, I did a couple very simple projects such as a farm house style table and after built a matching bench for one side, I am a grown man and refuse to sit on a bench so I decided that eventually I would design and build some farmhouse chairs, I didn’t think I was quite ready yet so I built (I am still finishing it) a farmhouse bed. Any body noticing a trend yet? I really like the farmhouse style furniture. Well when I first started I was just u...

Why buy it when you can make it! #19: Dresser Rehab [Part 7] - Epilogue

10-21-2014 12:43 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

The dresser is finally done with the project posted! And my wife has turned around and asked for some work (strip and re-paint) to be re-done to my old bachelor days Ikea dresser for our son. My first declaration was (naturally) ”I know just the tool to get the job done! But I don’t have it so I’ll have to buy it to get started. wink”. I’ve decided to take a different approach with this project to “have fun”. So for my first round of fun…mo...

Homemade Band sawmill #4: Gantry Rails and log bed

10-20-2014 09:58 PM by geekwoodworker | 7 comments »

The rails and log bed with log clamps are complete and after testing it by cutting another log I found some short comings with the clamps and my right blade guides. Here is the new blade guide for the right side and it works much better and is smaller than old one. The log clamps had some serious short comings as I had the uprights too close to where the left blade guides travel and unfortunately were in the way of blade guide for which I had to put a block between them ...

That Hole in the Floor #1: The Trap door framing and mechanism

10-20-2014 09:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

I’ve remodeled the entire house. Always a work in progress but mostly done. Ripped out walls, replaced paneling with sheetrock/paint, replaced carpets with hardwood floors, I made new kitchen cabinets, all moldings… etc. I’ve blogged most of it as I went along. The hole in the ground:We have a cellar that takes up about half the floor area of the house. The rest is a slab. It is a washroom, storage, houses the hot water tank, pump tank, etc. It’s finished off pretty...

Current Project #16: George's Cajon

10-20-2014 03:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Yes, another cajon. If I keep this up, I’ll eventually be able to make one without fudging anything. Here it is in glue up. The bits of blue tape are my method of indicating which edges I had to put rabbets in. The tape comes off more easily than sanding pencil marks.

Just for Fun... #92: and more Details...

10-20-2014 12:38 PM by littlecope | 15 comments »

9 days ago, we left off with one of the hinges needing a replacement top half… The off-cut was not as sleek as the originals, but the new half should work… As was said, this “Strapping” is going completely around… So attention then turned to the front, where “The Plan” is, for there to be Latches…They begin with holes, much like the hinges…(To my Australian Friend Robert: this image is especially for you… My one and only Brad Poi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1427: Monday, Monday

10-20-2014 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Once again we are here on a Monday.I have always loved Monday's, as they represent a fresh start to a new week and the promise of endless possibilities awaiting! I have always viewed Monday with enthusiasm and joy – even when I worked at other jobs outside my home or attended school. I suppose I always felt that every day – no matter what day of the week it was – would only be what we make of it, and I have always chosen to make it the best day I could. I don't see t...

Why buy it when you can make it! #18: Dresser Rehab [Part 6] - Hardware tweaking and tangent...

10-20-2014 03:41 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

My wife wanted to re-purpose the pulls to a satin nickel color. After a few quick sprays of some Rustoleum spray, we have some “satin nickel” pulls. While waiting for the paint to cure, we decided to move the dresser up to my daughter’s room. It’s already loaded up and ready for use. I figure I’ll attach the hardware tomorrow night once the paint is cured. We still have plans to rehab my bachelor days Ikea dresser for use in my son’s room, and to...
