My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #413: Dog Days

07-27-2011 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

”Dog Days” (Latin: diēs caniculārēs) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September. The actual dates vary greatly from region to region, depending on latitude and climate. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was res...

Book shelf making Grump!

01-30-2012 10:01 AM by andyboy | 2 comments »

Today was a testing experience with 26 degrees c in my little garage I managed to break 2 -6mm router bits and break a fan heater moving it too swiftly with my foot. ( it wasn’t going at the time…).I am making a bookshelf from a Taunton bookshelf book. The sides are only 13mm (half inch) thick. It is a lot lighter to what I am used to. Hope to bring you a video soon with out the heated episode (sorry guys).Some cool things getting made out there., Andy.

Easy made toolboxes from "leftovers"

02-11-2012 10:51 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I really like projects when i can go down to the shop and use what i already have without going to the store and buy “the optimal” wood for “the perfect” solution. It started with purely practical reasons i have a small shop with almost no storage space and before i can buy more wood i have to get rid of the old. therefor i started doing projects with scrap pieces. its fun, you have to let the wood define the project, so to speak. and if you are a novice like...

Shaun brought his pen kits with and I had to show him how to start of.well it was not difficult ,but was my first cigar pen and we turned this out of cape Iron wood,Must say the wood turned well and the finish was great. Sanded to 800 grit and finished it off with Goblins Danish oil – very nice! Hein worked on his cabinet, he started with the assembly and did well for the day.Gavi...

Contemporary Cross project #8: Shiplap on horizontal piece

12-17-2010 07:28 AM by kevinw | 2 comments »

Now that the dado in the horizontal piece is complete put it temporarily in place over the vertical piece. The joint should be snug but neither loose or tight. Score the lines for cutting the curves on the vertical piece. You can see here the score lines ready to begin cutting. Repeat all the steps shown in earlier installments of the blog to create a dado in this piece that is 1/2 the depth of the lumber, etc. Here you see both pieces with the waste removed. They are...

Overkill Dog Gate

02-16-2014 09:47 PM by Rockindokken | 2 comments »

My lovely Fiance’s dog loves to wander about my house and pee if you’re not watching her, so we needed a way to contain the 10 lbs of Yorkie Fury. I do have to say she’s probably the quietest and laziest Yorkie I’ve ever met, so this gate didn’t need to be anything large. I have a Bearded Collie, but he’d never try to defeat a gate, he’s just not into making me upset. My fiance wanted to buy a dog gate online, GASP! I told her I had a pile of scra...

House Built-in #5: Another Quick Update

12-24-2009 04:26 PM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Just a quick update: I built one drawer box and one drawer front so far, unfortunately I ran out of milled stock to do the second, so I’ll have to mill some more (hopefully this weekend) to finish up the second cabinet. This was the first drawer box I’ve done, so I was very happy that it came out just about perfect in width so that the slides attached properly. I goofed the first time mounting it, forgetting that the slide had to be flush with the front of the box, so the drawer...

Reception desk #1: Project completed in 2 days! I Needed 4 days of rest after...

04-11-2012 06:09 PM by Dewshan | 2 comments »

I am working on a reception desk for a local business. Using birch plywood with birch trim. Had everything done over one weekend except for the finish. I like to cut dados first with the router on a festool track and then cut into separate pieces the design features a built in monitor in the top. the easiest way I found to do that was to build around the monitor. 2 small dowels hold the monitor at the right angle. I had to assemble this outside because it is a li...

The less than mess, mess

10-08-2011 03:21 PM by topcat | 2 comments »

After the move and the partial purging of stuff and the partial organizing, the garage is a partially functioning shop. From Shop mess Yes, it’s still a mess. You should have seen it before I cleaned up ;)It is most definitely a work in progress which tends to be slowed down by my incessant need to start new projects. If I could focus on getting the shop done, it may very well be a work of art. However, it’s more fun to work the wood and I still have to make a living, so the works...
