My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1813: Finished Sloth Pastel Drawing

01-13-2017 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Last month, I was thrown a bit off track by life's events. It happens to the best of us. We set our goals.We work to achieve them. And then as we are rolling right along . . . BAM! "Life" gets in the way. It is just part of living. As I get older, I am figuring out that the more resilient and flexible that I am, the easier things are. I have watched family and friends who are perhaps a little bit rigid in their thinking struggle because things aren't quite the same...

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

Does this make me a "Hipster"?

01-11-2017 12:12 AM by jbschutz | 5 comments »

Hip replacement surgery done......last Thursday afternoon…...back home Sunday afternoon. Pretty darn amazing! I am not dancing, and I have some pain, but I am on the mend. They had me up and walking Friday morning and I tested out on the stairs on Sunday morning. The surgeon said I passed, and they were kicking me out. I felt really good to get back home, but the best part was being able to have a beer with my dinner. Those hospital people just don’t realize how uplifting that cou...

Shop stuff #71: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 8

01-10-2017 11:12 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We are slowly getting there folks. I am prepping and starting the finishing process and finding out how bad this ash is for tear out. It has some wild grain and, like ash is apt to be, stringy. Hang in there, things are about to get interesting on upcoming episodes. View on YouTube

Shop storage projects #6: Working on the storage dresser

01-10-2017 07:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Muddle through a bit more with that Stanley #45…..wasn’t quite right. But.. I had these four to get done, somehow. Came up with the idea that IF I drilled a hole where the tenons will be, I could then attach the part to the side of the bench, so the fence wouldn’t hit anything along the way… needed to countersink for the screws. Tried a few more times with the 45… Things still weren’t quite right. Tenons were cut on the few blanks I did get ...

Hoosier restoration #1: A Hoosier Cabinet from the 1920' or 1930's needs some restoration.

01-10-2017 03:55 PM by makeBrooklyn | 2 comments »

In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1811: The Comfort of Routine

01-10-2017 02:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

The older I get, the more I seem to enjoy the concept of 'familiarity'. I will follow up that sentence with stating that I do NOT feel "that old". (Really!)  I think that lately, though, the things that have come up unexpectedly have not exactly been things that I consider as 'pleasant'. I know that has nothing whatsoever to do with age, but for some reason, these days I don't feel quite as resilient as I have in the past. Is this due to circumstan...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1810: Back to Blogging . . .

01-09-2017 03:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I realize it has been a long time since I posted a blog. To be honest with you all, it has been a rough couple of months. After losing my dear kitty and constant companion Pancakes suddenly early in December, the following week my other kitty Richard became gravely ill. The vet seems to think that his illness was triggered by the stress of losing Pancakes. Cats are very sensitive creatures. The combination of Pancakes just 'disappearing' and me being grief-stricken was something that ...

Shop storage projects #5: Dungeon Shop Remodel, Stage 3, and....

01-08-2017 10:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

A bit of woodworking, too. Was at a standstill on moving things around, decided to at least start on the chest of drawers build. I had an old pine 4×4 in the shop. Decided I could resaw it down for a few parts. Trying to get a few 4/4 by 2” wide blanks made up. Once those were resawn, I had to plane them smooth and square, well, at least ONE was done. I also set up a fancy plane, to do a bit of molding work on the now squared up blank… A Stanley No.45, with tha...

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!
