My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1371: More Progress and New Plaques

4 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Another busy weekend has come and gone. The speed that time passes continues to amaze me. I must be busy.It is cool here this morning, with just a bit of rain. After the past few days which were rather warm and sticky, I am happy for the change. Although our weather here in Nova Scotia seems very mild in when I hear about how hot it has been in other places. I feel very fortunate.I made some progress on my "Nevermore" plaque yesterday. I didn't quite complete it, but it will be ...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #5: Finishing off the bark, Marking the Cut

14 hours ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

I don’t usually sand with 60 grit, but I went through disc after disk getting the last of the bark off the sides and getting it rough sanded. I’ve left a tiny bit of the inner layer of bark here and there because it is quite difficult to get all of it off. I will apply a bit of finish over a section at some point to see how it looks before deciding if I need to go the extra mile. Because of the sharp angle on most of the edge, it will not be particularly visible day to day. He...

Why buy it when you can make it! #9: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill [Part 2]

15 hours ago by paxorion | 0 comments »

I picked up some Arm-R-Seal on Friday during the Woodcraft anniversary sale and I am definitely a believer in the product’s quality. For starters, it is so easy to use, and levels itself off very nicely. I have finished four coats so far, and plan on putting 1 more coat on tonight, before I let the mill cure for a few days. Looking forward to a grind come next weekend! (My wife can’t wait)

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #4: Thinking through the Full Blind Miter Jig

17 hours ago by CharlesA | 0 comments »

For the waterfall leg, I’m using Full Blind Multiple Splined joinery as described by Tage Frid. I discovered this method by asking a question in a forum post here on LJ. Thanks to Woodendeavor and Randy-ATX for directing me this way. I purchased three of his books. This description is found on pp. 102ff of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery The joint looks like this: The two biggest keys will be to cut the slab correctly and building the jig so the miters line up...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #3: Removing the Bark

22 hours ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I left the bark on the piece for my coffee table, but thought if it ever became a problem, I’d take it off. My understanding is that the bark is safe to keep on if the slab has been kiln dried. Air dried bark will have bugs. Since this is a gift, I’m taking the bark off from the beginning. The bark was pretty stubborn on this piece. i’d heard that some folks find an angle grinder handy to do this. I found it helpful, but not as helpful as a more sophisticated tool I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1370: Progress on the "Nevermore" Scroll Saw Project

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I made good progress on my scrolled version of the "Nevermore" plaque although it did not come without its challenges. It was nothing that I couldn't overcome, but it took some real thought to sort some of the process out in my mind and make it work how I intended. But after spending the day laying things out and finally getting the chance to cut the pieces at the scroll saw, I am fairly happy with the results. Below is a photograph of where it sits as I write this morning: S...
