House Beam Rebuilt - A Handtool Workbench #1: The Begining...

09-22-2013 12:49 AM by LaPala | 3 comments »

Inspired by Japanese Planning Beam/Bench(?) and spurred by the need for a reference surface to work on is how this build started. Cost considerations dictates that this build will be from materials and stuff that I already have and whatever I can recycle. There are no plans, just rough sketches as I go as aid to plan out some details. But I do have a general “war path” that will eventually make this a Handtool Workbench. This is the start… I did not take pictures before I...

Workshop Development #72: Building tools in the shop to build the shop...

01-03-2014 08:01 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So I spent more quality time than I care for last night with a drywall sander, and I got most of the bumps knocked down, that is at least until I got to the corner by the overhead door track… The space between the track, and the abutting wall is simply too narrow to fit the drywall sander in… Time to get creative… I know! Cut down a piece of 3/4” plywood scrap to 2.5” x 8”. With the scroll saw (Because the band saw is still buried) cut out a quick...

Workshop Development #86: Ladders stored, paint, shelves done, and a mess of cleaning!

02-03-2014 03:01 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I got quite a bit done over the weekend. Created new tight to the ceiling storage for the 6’ ladder, crammed the 10’ ladder between the garage doors, finished smoothing and painted the 2 areas of wall I was working on, installed shelf standards and brackets above more or less the reverse osmosis system tank, cleaned up the bench, got the Ridgid sander back on the tool stacker. That poor thing is at full capacity now, and even had to take the belt off the ridgid sander to make it f...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #987: Working on Version Four of the Bunnies

03-19-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the day yesterday working on the final version of bunnies. This version is once again a silhouette, but it is going to be painted using a couple of nice techniques. I spent the afternoon working on the base coating and I used some crackle medium to give them a crackled finish. In the past, I have used the crackle medium with a dark under coat so that the crackles really stand out. This time however, I decided to use the bright pastel colors underneath for a more subtle effect. I a...

Piano Reconstruction... (Cont..)

01-20-2012 04:24 PM by jeth | 3 comments »

Ok, with the panels laid up I got the edges planed to trim to final dimensions then, i have to admit, for fear of tearout I sanded rather than smoothing the faces with a hand plane. Here shooting the edging strip that covers the top end of the lamination, the idea was to bring this down to about 1/16” so that it would coincide more or less with the round over on the edges and become near invisible.. Now to get the other bits done.. Keyboard supports....

Pine Pantry Cupboard #9: Door #2 installed...

06-24-2017 01:34 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, door panel came out of the clamps today. I hauled it up to the Pantry to make sure it will fit. needed to trim one end a bit, and rip about 7/8” off one edge. Set things up to remove all the bandsaw markings.. Used both of these jointers.. To get the edges straight and saw mark free. Used a small plane to do the glue line leveling And got the panel set just right to make a lip on the correct edge.. Just a plough plane….Stanley No. 45 Once I got the spur o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1627: On to the Weekend!

09-25-2015 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that we have another weekend under our belts! But with the mornings getting cooler and the darkness lasting a little longer each day, it is hard to forget that the beautiful summer weather is giving way to autumn. Time surely passes quickly when we are busy! Yesterday I spent the day with Keith updating the site and getting out my bi-weekly newsletter. We changed all the sales on our Pattern Specials page and we added another new pattern that Keith created. This tim...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1639: A Day Away

10-21-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that it is Wednesday already. As usual, time is going by faster than I would like. After some much cooler weather over the past weekend, we were reminded that winder is close on our heels. I know that people don't want to think about that, but it is going to arrive whether we think about it or not, so it is best to prepare the best we can for things and do what we can to make those long months pleasant.  After seeing snow flurries this past Sunday, I realized th...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #6: Another sad day...

09-23-2009 02:45 AM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Since I was out of the office today I didn’t get to work on my Unisaw again… well maybe just for a minute. I can’t work on it again today. La Jolla can wait two minutes… Painting the bracket again. I stopped at Rockler A matter of personal preference. The thing about recording videos with your iPhone is that if you get a call it just stops recording in mid-sentence. This paint is too gray. I think I will have to buy a can from Delta.
