My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1506: I'll Have a Scoop of Spring - (Make Mine a Triple!)

02-26-2015 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

You all know that I never mind winter. In fact – I actually LIKE it most times and try to enjoy every season and day that comes my way. But when yesterday's beautiful, white and fluffy snow turned into an icy rain, and I looked at my pretty red car encased up to the dash in a block of frozen snow, I couldn't help but think ahead to warmer days. It happens to the best of us. One of the many advantages of being active on social media – especially when you are a member o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1505: A Perfect World - Panel 17

02-25-2015 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It is snowing outside this morning. Rather hard, actually. I ventured out to bring the garbage to the end of the road, as we have had to have the bags sitting on our little deck these past two weeks. This isn't because we are lazy. There is simply no other place to put it. When our driveway was cleared last week from the big storm, the tractor dumped about 8 feet of snow onto our trash bin across the road. We probably won't see it for several weeks.As walked the trash out to the ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #3: Milling

02-25-2015 03:12 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

I was tasked by my boss to modify a part for the machines that I work on. A 6’ long and half inch square piece of plastic that is a guide rail. I had to rip it on the table saw and ream out the screw holes. I made them order me a special plastic cutting blade that arrived on Monday. Last week in anticipation for continuing my bench build, I had ordered a new ripping blade so consequently I was on hold until both blades arrived. The plastic one came first so I got that little job out of ...

From Rust to (Saw) Dust: A Journey #1: Introduction

02-24-2015 11:17 PM by gleasoncraftworks | 3 comments »

Hello all! This is my first post to LumberJocks, and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey into the world of woodworking with you all, as well as learning everything I can from the old (sorry, EXPERIENCED!) hands out there. I’m an Information Technology consultant by profession, but I’ve also been a rough carpenter/handyman for a few years now on the side. I’ve done a few finer things in that time—I’m particularly proud of a set of built-ins ...

Finding a Great Item at a Favorite Fleatique

02-24-2015 11:16 PM by John G. | 0 comments »

One of my favorite browsing places is the Eastbrook Flea market and Antique Mall. A couple of weeks ago we were perusing the basement. there is an interesting tool vendor that often has some great old things. I found this plane. I have a smooth plane, and have seen others, but this was interesting – and complete. So here is a picture: I proceeded to disassemble it to see the condition and figure out what to do next. Here is the before slide show at Photobucket:http://s1192.photo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1503: This, That and the Other Thing

02-23-2015 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It snowed this weekend. We have another several inches of fresh snow over some icy rain that fell. It just can't seem to decide what to do outside, so it is doing everything. It is hard to believe that the weekend has gone by so quickly. Not so much because I didn't accomplish anything, but more so because I got so many things done. Lately I haven't been blogging much on the weekend only to give myself a break from the daily routine. I figure that will give me more to ta...

Park Model Deck #1: Unconventional Park Model Deck

02-23-2015 01:54 AM by Jim Jakosh | 13 comments »

This year the project for our park model was a new deck. This grouping of photos show how I built it- but not the conventional way. I designed it to have drawers below for storage and wanted the railing on the outside of the deck the carpet could be easily changed in the future. Here is what we started with: I used my laser mount (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/109042) to set the level line to start: And then I built small rectangles with 2×4”s and connected top and bott...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface #5: Getting Close to Full Width

02-22-2015 02:53 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

I ended up gluing inside my apartment where it was warmer. Ice and snowoutside. It is wide enough now that it won’t fit inside the glue box anyway. All 12 boards glued up. I think that I will add 2 more to make it 21” wide.

Table saw cabinet #1: Let's get rolling! Week 1.

02-21-2015 05:57 AM by Heisinberg | 0 comments »

Welcome to my blog. I finally decided to get to getting on a major upgrade to my shop. I’ve been quickly running out of usable and efficient storage. I also have found that having a router table in my table saw is double edged sword. Breaking down one setup to create another then back again has gotten old and is not the way I like to get things done. So I went to lumber yard and loaded up the truck with plywood and mdf. Table saw cabinet here we come. I took inspiration from many pla...
