My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1728: Patience

05-02-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Sometimes I think I am my own worst enemy. There are times – especially when I am designing – that I am very, very hard on myself and just not happy with the way things are going. As a result, the things I do often take a great deal of time for me to complete. I wind up changing things and re-doing them several times before I even show them to you all. There are even times when these projects are scrapped and put in a drawer or completely discarded. Although I am happy to say that...

Turning project - Mother's day gifts #2: Blanks roughed out and first vase turned

05-02-2016 02:29 AM by Mike_D_S | 0 comments »

So I had picked up a nice piece of maple 4×4x8” and a rosewood block 4×8x8”. They are big enough to get these projects done, so I split the rosewood block into two 4×4x8” pieces on the bandsaw. I have some inexpensive HF turning tools I bought to get started and a few of the easy wood tools with the carbide tips. I had bought the Rikon low speed grinder that was on sale last month, but it as on backorder. It finally came in, so before I got started, I se...

Getting my tools ready #25: Shop Made 2'x4' Down Draft Table

05-01-2016 07:47 PM by DocSavage45 | 20 comments »

DOWNDRAFT TABLE BUILD – 2016 This is a project I needed to do to work on my boxes. I’m sharing details for LJ’s who might want to build their own if they haven’t already. Minnesota winter means enclosed shop. Dust! I needed a table that would fill a number of functions for me. I wanted a large enough space to sand furniture parts as well as making boxes. I’m providing this blog for those of you who want to make a slightly larger down draft table/box. I...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...

Hand Tool Driven Lowboy Build

04-28-2016 01:15 PM by OrangeElk | 3 comments »

The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab’s machines. The lowboy I chose looks like a transition piece between William and Mary to Queen Anne. This low boy was featured in PWM by Glen Huey, but I never ended up reading the issue, I made the plans from pictures. Starting the p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1726: More Updates, Sales and a Newsletter

04-28-2016 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have so many wonderful plans ahead of me!  As I dream about our new, larger home as well as my very own studio, my head is filled with more ideas than ever. While I am proud of the way we made our business work while living in and working out of a small, one bedroom place, I can't help but feel wonderful that the time here will soon be behind me and both Keith and I will be able to spread our wings and really FLY!I am hoping that I am not deluding myself into thinking that with mor...

iPhone passive amplifiers

04-28-2016 02:51 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of. So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are cons...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #2: Assembly

04-27-2016 09:40 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBb81zPeVCXMFdibTFpRHdySGsThanks for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...
