My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #28: Another New Project in The Works

07-01-2010 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s pretty quiet around here today. It’s one of those days when I can’t wait to get to the scroll saw, but it is only 7am and I don’t dare until another couple of hours. I was able to finish another drawing last night of a fretwork liner that I am going to market to set under the large jar candles. It will resemble the dresser tray in concept, but it will set underneath the jar. Many people thought that the little dresser tray was made for that purpose, as the size...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1349: Swamped! :)

07-03-2014 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

t isn't often that I say I am "swamped". Usually I am pretty darn organized and really on top of things. But there are times when there comes a burst of activity with my little business and I have to regain my composure.This is NOT a negative by any means! I look at it as very much the opposite – especially at this time of year which is typically quite slow. It is an early indicator of things to come and helps us get ready for the busy autumn and holiday season. I am alrea...

Almost Done With The Base

09-05-2010 11:27 PM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

The other day I got a call from a buddy of mine named Von Hatcher. Von used to sell framing lumber back when I framed houses. Anyway, he said he went to work for Suawnee Lumber and that I should come check it out. I had some time Friday so I did. While I was there drooling over all that lumber, I got to talking to another customer there. It turned out he was a fellow lumber jock and was following this blog!! I thought that was really cool! Hopefully, my new buddy Ryan and I can get together a...

Quest for a bigger TV #7: Bookcase Doors

10-25-2010 06:12 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

This series has been about re-creating an existing wall entertainment unit to accomidate a larger TV for my parents. In the 2 side bookcases there were doors that have glass panels in them. My Dad took up the task of re-creating these glass panels himself. He located an Art Glass store in Minneapolis where he could purchase all of the supplies and equipment needed to create these glass panels. They are true divided light windows with brass caming. He spent about a month perfecting the ...

new ideas #3: almost ready to go

03-25-2011 12:59 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I have my new lumber laid out on my table saw waiting for me.I have a couple of ideas floating around in my brain.Ready to go right? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! First I have to complete the bathroom remodel for my wife. I have been working on it for almost a month. It seems like a long time on just a half bath, in my defense, I did gut it to the studs and I only work on it a hour or two a day. So far I have fixed several things inside the walls, hung and finished the sheetrock, pa...

Table Saw Outfeed Table #1: Fabricating the frame

07-23-2012 02:48 AM by Drifter | 3 comments »

So, I decided to build an out feed table for my table saw to make it easier to handle larger pieces of material. Because I am working with limited space – like so many others out there – decided to make it a fold away support. I had some old/new door hinges stored away so they are the basis of the geometry for folding the table down. This is the frame design: Of course – some changes were made once I got rolling. I really didn’t like the thought of having to r...

Nicholson Bench #3: Legs Ready

11-04-2011 04:47 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

Tonight I finished getting all the legs ready for joinery. I started by flatting one face and taking out any twist. Some of the boards were pretty bad. The second face was then planed parallel to the first by marking the thickness. I don’t have much of a bench now (hence the build) and working the edges is difficult. I have better luck doing that after the glueup.After all 8 pieces were flatt on the faces they were glued together. Because the widths were not all the same I found t...

Twins! #3: Wood selection

11-19-2011 01:45 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well… I haven’t made and entry in a while. I’ve made a cut list and compared prices in Eugene, Oregon. Emerson Hardwood/Crosscut had the best prices. I made a detailed list of what wood I needed, in common thicknesses and widths. All I needed was laid out down to the last detail. I had my list in hand and I drove the 1.5 hours to Eugene to get my lumber. When I got there, Emerson had the widths I needed, but not the lengths. Crap! I had to redo the lumber list all in my hea...

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...
