Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #4: Build complete

05-10-2012 01:36 PM by Mosquito | 3 comments »

Last weekend I was able to complete the coffee table, apart from finishing it. I put a bevel on the top and bottom corners of the table top, as well as a slight bevel on all the way around the legs, and on the bottom edges of the apron. As per a recommendation from someone on my last blog entry, I also put a decently heavy bevel on the leg bottoms, to try to avoid splintering. I attached the top with table top fasteners and cut the slots for them with my biscuit joiner. Cat ...

Stickley inspired Entertainment Center #2: Design ideas - Plan

05-05-2011 12:59 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

Spent time thinking about what I want in an Entertainment Center. The Stickley designs are 63 in wide. Typical heights are 30 to 34 in. I drew up a plan showing what I think I want to do. I like kick boards for the bottom better than the typical rounded Stickley design. Frankly, I am not much of a housekeeper and I end up with too much dirt/dust and am too lazy to want to keep it clean under the front. Bottom 3 openings will be drawers. Top 6 will be shelves. I showed the shelves as...

The Sawcliffe Green man #1: Drawing

03-03-2014 01:13 AM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 3 comments »

This is a new piece I will be working on over the next 3 or 4 months. It is 5”x7”x3.20”, a small carving for me, the wood is Alaskan Yellow Cedar. All in all this will be an unusual project. I will be on a trip to Florida next week to visit my dad, and when I get back I will begin a full fledged commission work for a client/friend, a bust of her Swiss mountain dog! I will spend an hour or two on most days after the commission piece working on this Green man for The Sawcliffe...

The Sawcliffe Green man #9: The Sawcliffe Green man #9

Further progress. Details on the twigs and buds are much easier to do with my new Helvie knife, I am really beginning to love the tool. I will be concentrating on my other project for a few days to get it established, then I will start splitting my days between the two.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1507: Spring Triple Scoop Project Completed

02-27-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is NOT snowing today. The sun is shining and I can actually see hints of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds. (And yes – I am happy about it!) Those of you who read often know that I love winter. I love just about any season that comes to Clare, Nova Scotia. I long ago stopped being crabby about the weather because there is truly nothing that I could do about it. I figure it is a poor use of my time complaining about something that I have so little control over (aside f...

Another New Fangled Workbench #8: End in Sight

10-05-2008 07:56 AM by MichaelW | 3 comments »

I have actually had the bench in this stage since early September when my father in law was in town to give me a hand in mounting the top, beam and all, to the sled. It went on just right the first time which was rewarding, until I looked closer at the planing beam pipes and realized I was going to have to make some adjustments on the alignment holes in the top. After several go ‘rounds, we finally got that into a workable solution. Then I raised the planing beam only to discover it ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #948: Carnival of Animals

01-31-2013 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

What a crazy night! In the eight years that I lived here in Nova Scotia, I don’t remember ever experiencing winds like we had last night. As I read the status’ of my friends that are to the west of us in both Canada and the United States, apparently it is just our turn. And while we are currently experiencing 11 degree temperatures (Celsius), it is supposed to go down below freezing by nightfall and we are to have up to 10 cm of snow. Crazy. I only mention this because I s...
