Kitchen Cabinets #1: Lower shells complete.

05-17-2012 04:06 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1313: A Much Needed Mini-Vacation

05-09-2014 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Sometimes the best 'vacations' are those that are done spur of the moment.  When I went outside to take the trash to the curb for pickup early Wednesday morning, I could already tell that the day was going to be beautiful. The sun was shining and the early morning mist was beginning to lift and after the long, cold winter it was a day when I just wanted to be outside.  The time was now. Keith and I had spoken of taking a short driving trip.  He had got his Miata ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #116: Finished Drawing - On To Cutting

09-27-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It was a good day yesterday. Again I am excited today because I get to cut out a new project. I finished designing my next candle holder yesterday and I have an extremely beautiful piece of padauk just waiting for the scroll saw this morning. It is so pretty, with bright orange and dark brown streaks running through it. Unfortunately with cutting a scroll saw design into it, you tend to lose the pattern of the grain. It isn’t like a box or something like that, but it is still a prett...

Router Table Extension Wing #4: Which side is up?

02-07-2011 05:59 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I woke up this morning and tried to get some work done before the Super Bowl (Go Packers!). I trimmed the extra laminate and proceeded to bond the second face. Here is the top with sticks on it so I can position the laminate above it without gluing it in the wrong place: Then I placed the laminate on the sticks and got it positioned so there is equal amounts of overhang all the way around: Then I pull out the sticks working out from the middle and press the laminate down: Once agai...

Shop reorganization

09-11-2009 05:57 AM by Joe Watson | 3 comments »

I have been working to try getting my shop in better shape. When we bought the house we live in now I wanted a 3 car garage to use the third stall as my shop but I always had it too cluttered to have it as my shop. my dad was in town this week so he designed me a wood shelf to stack wood on which helps a lot in cleaning my space. Also got both of our cars back in the garage as well. I put the pictures up in my workshop area of my lumberjocks account.

New Workbench #4: Rising Dovetails

10-29-2011 02:49 AM by Letorix | 3 comments »

Well I have about 4 hours in cutting this out and I still have 1/32 or so bow in the faces. I sure hope the pride I may feel for these joints will be worth it. I’d love to hear how others would have done this quicker and more accurately. This hard maple has dulled my cheap cabinet makers rasp….man this is tough slow work!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1504: More New Patterns!

02-24-2015 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It isn't often when I find myself ahead of schedule. Usually I am pushing hard to get everything done in the time frame that I have more so than not made for myself. I am pretty good at being disciplined and more or less keeping to that schedule, although I allow it to fluctuate a bit one way or another. My "working weekend" must have paid off though because initially we weren't planning to do another website update until later this week. We found though that we had eno...
