Wooden Mallet

06-16-2011 04:27 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

My first turning project I tried out my Laguna lathe and the thing is just a beauty. Well i think it would be great thou when i actually get some skill with the thing. I have bought a couple of turning blanks from and received them the other day. Their was some spindle and Bowl blanks. I was very impressed with there stuff, they go thru the effort to do most of the finishing for you so you can just drop them into the lathe. SO with a loth of hesitation I decide...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #535: Preparing for Germ Warfare

11-27-2011 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I’m getting ready to face battle here. My partner Keith has come down with what is turning into a nasty cold. The last thing I want or need is to get sick right now so I am doing everything I can to avoid sharing in the experience. To me there are just some things you don’t want to share. It started last week when we were doing the major cleaning. He was sneezing and saying his throat was sore and his nose was bothering him. We thought that it definitely could have been al...

The cottonwood came from the K Ranch on the Colorado Utah border in Dinosaur Colorado. And yes it is seriously the name of a town. Here is the rough material. each stumo will sit on a base, the base it not necessary, it adds to the beauty

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #75: Back to the Drawing Board!

08-17-2010 02:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It turned out to be quite a productive day after all. It feels good to be back in the swing of things. There is something that I find quite comforting in following a routine and it was great to feel ‘normal’ and productive again. The welts are all but gone from the bites on me and I no longer feel need for the medicine (although after finding the proper one, it wasn’t as much of an issue) My it was cool yesterday. It remained slightly overcast all day and it felt so muc...

My new Roubo #2: Working on the top

12-07-2010 07:38 AM by JasonD | 2 comments »

One of the things I’m most thankful for about this project is all the lessons I’m learning, relearning, and getting a new appreciation for. Dimensioning the boards for the top 100% by hand has proven to be a lot of work, but I’m loving every bit of it. Planing these boards has been a real challenge considering that they’re a foot longer than my current plywood + hardboard bench top. I’ve had to be creative and to attack that problem; finally coming up with a g...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #13: Hickory Pulls

02-06-2011 06:15 AM by Don | 2 comments »

Yea, I know these are supposed to be made out of Ebony but I don’t cut anything out of ebony until I’ve practiced it a bunch with Hickory. It took a number of tries to get the drill press setup just right but this was otherwise pretty easy to make. Tommorrow I’ll attempt to make the real ones and if all goes well then my next blog will be titled “Ebony Pulls”, if not it will be titled “Screwup #2”...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #2: Meet "Mr. Snowman"

08-17-2010 03:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

“Mr. Snowman” is the second of the Skating Pond series which I am recreating. I love his little plaid scarf! Painting plaids is really fun and a bit of a challenge when I am doing so on such a tiny piece. He also looks a little more ‘fluffy’ in person. I am just going to keep scanning in the pieces now for consistency. When they are all done, I will take real photos using a camera and they may look a bit different. The snowman in the original set looked kind of ...

Vermont Lap Desk, almost done:

04-20-2013 05:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With the sides all nice and coplanar, time to mill a rabbet for a bottom. Set up a router with a 3/8” rabbetting bit, and ran it around the edges. Squared the corners with a chisel. Now, I get told there is to be a divider in this desk. Hunt around for a piece of scrap wood to make the divider. I also needed a dado for it to be installed. So, I laid one out, about three inches from the front. handsawn, and then chiseled to remove the waste And repeat for the other s...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #7: Long Time Away From Shop

06-25-2009 02:23 AM by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Well it has been been over 15 days since I last had a chance to work in the shop. In that time I have hauled 47,000 bu of wheat for a Farmer friend of mine over to the grain elevator in Memphis Tn. With a few days early on of some rain that kept him out of the field he was able to harvest enough ahead to keep me busy running the trucks on those days. I was anxious to get back out tomorrow and start to get my bearings again and make some saw dust when I hit a door jam with a bare foot th...
