My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1738: Creating for Relaxation

05-31-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the most difficult things that I find about owning your own business is finding the "off switch."  As someone who has been dedicated to creating and art for over 20 years now, working on art of business related things has not only become a habit, but also a lifestyle. Many times my partner Keith mentions to me that my 'relaxing' (off) days look a lot like my 'working' days, as it seems that I am always in the process of making soemthing in some shape...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1737: A New Series of Designs - Almost Ready!

05-30-2016 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It seems like I haven't blogged forever. Even though I have only missed for a week, it feels like much more time has passed than that. It has been over six years since I began posting nearly every day, and breaking away from that routine has been difficult, but I feel for now it is necessary. We are going though many changes at this time. Keith and I have made the decision to move into a larger place and there is much preparation that needs to be done to make our move go smoothly. Fo...

Cedar Driveway Gate #6: Whats in an arc

05-30-2016 05:57 AM by WoodHoarder | 1 comment »

I’m gonna focus a bit on how I made the arc as it is a little more complicated than the rest of the process. To get the arc to the right proportion, I needed to laminate two pieces of wood. Here, I am laying out where the arc will fit using my template. I’m used biscuits for alignment and to hopefully protect against de-lamination. It’s important to lay out where the biscuits are so that they don’t show when the arc is cut. Biscuits are cut. ...

More working with Pine #8: back is done,some mortises chopped

05-30-2016 03:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got out the chisels, clamped a rail to the bench, and chopped awhile.. Made to match the tenon. Some of the tenons were a bit too fat. Thinned them down a bit, then marked the rail to fit. Depth was around 1” deep…..as each mortises was chopped and fitted, I kept marking them, to tell which end went which way. Test fits.. Once I got all the mortises chopped, got the clamps and glue out…..fight was on! The rail in the vise wasn’t so bad to do, it was t...

More working with Pine #7: Slats are done for the back...

05-29-2016 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

At least. Spend some time getting five slats resawn out of a 4×4.. Found of of these had a shortage of knots. Cut it down to 26” long. Then, marked a line just over 2” wide, and resawed the excess off. Set that aside with the other two.. As I can make seat slats, or armrests out of them. Set the main event so I could slice off 1/2” thick slabs, 2”wide.. Since I already had the side on the bench, I could lay out the slats as they came off the ban...

Progress so far

05-27-2016 11:39 PM by Pjonesy | 16 comments »

I started this model Hydraulic crane from a Toys & Joys plan a while ago, but hopefully I am back into it again. In the photo above you can see the main platform, upside down and the wheels and tires in there unfinished state. This photo shows the tires after ebonizing with the rims just sitting in there for effect. This photo is a close up of the ebonized tires with the rims and wheel hubs etc.

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #2: The writing has begun

05-26-2016 11:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

A few days ago I contacted the editor of the newsletter for Esperanto-USA, the national organization for Esperantists in the U.S.A. I sort of know the guy from a few contacts over the years. I basically queried if he’d be interested in articles in Esperanto about woodworking. The answer was yes. As it turns out he wants the sort of articles that I would be putting in my book, a basic how-to approach. While this is not a paying gig, I think it’s advantageous for me as it give...

My new (to me) band saw re-do

05-26-2016 09:30 PM by jonlruss | 4 comments »

A few months back I began searching for a 14” band saw. I had my dad’s 9” Ryobi and needless to say hit the limitation ceiling with it PDQ. In my search I finally found a mid-90’s model Craftsman Professional 14”. The seller had gotten it from a neighbor but had never used it. When I turned it on it screamed like a banshee. The blade was way out of alignment, and when I opened it up, sections of the dry, rotted tires fell out. At only $75 and there being nothing ...

More working with Pine #6: A catching up post

05-26-2016 01:58 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen…. Second one was also done. Set them aside for now… And started to work on the seat parts… Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now. Had resaw work to do, twice.. Used one of the...
