My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1389: The "Two-Minute" Blog

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call to remind me that I had an eye doctors' appointment in Digby this morning.  I must be getting old because I completely forgot about it. I also thought I set my Google reminders to remind me, but I guess I forgot that as well, or I did it wrong. In any case, I have to skeedaddle out of here today and it is supposed to be a beautiful and sunny day here in Nova Scotia. My sweetie thought it would be a great day to play "hookie" ...

The Shows #26: Central States Fair wrap up

3 days ago by Monte Pittman | 22 comments »

Although it started with a bang, I only really had one more big day. However, I still had the 2nd biggest week ever and I am having my biggest month ever. So would I have wanted to sell more? Of course, that’s the idea. But I can’t be disappointed with the results. I also have several of what I consider “very possible” custom orders. If most of them come through it will be a huge show for me. Another thing, is pricing. I have always been criticized for under pricing...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1388: 'Lazy' Weekend

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe that another Monday is upon us. What I find even more difficult to digest is that it is the final week of August. It seems as if summer has just began and at least here in Nova Scotia, there were only a few days that I would consider to be 'hot'. But as I awake in the morning, I notice that it is darker each day. This morning when I got up the sun was barely peeking over the horizon. I know that soon it will be completely dark, and I will once again need a l...

Wooden Boat #1: Form Setup

4 days ago by Clay Ortiz | 7 comments »

I decided a little before last Christmas that I would take the plunge and build a wooden boat. My wife bought me a copy of Howard Chapelle’s book, Boat Building, as a Christmas gift. I read the book before deciding on the plan I wanted. I have built a lot of things from bird houses to 12,000 sq ft homes and this little boat is the most intimidating project that I can remember. It took me about three weeks to loft the lines. I would work a little bit then read a while then I would get fr...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #11: It's been a while--gluing up and finishing

4 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t written an entry for over two weeks, the combination of being on the road (I happen to be among the select few ever to ride in a commercial jet from Montgomery AL to Columbus GA, not that either airport was scheduled in my itinerary) and attending the wedding of the couple to whom this table will be given. Since the last entry, dry fit the whole table, decided what radius to put on the shelf on the waterfall edge (the inside of the leg is narrower than the shelf), and darke...

Current Project #2: Notebook(s) Holder(s)

4 days ago by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

This is basically what my current project will look like. Here is is held together by gravity and friction. As I write this, one of the pair is in the final glue-up. It’s basically coming out as I imagined it. No real mistakes, but a few second trimmings and re-set ups of my TS. In case it’s not clear, this is a sort of wall mounted holder for a notebook for my daughter. It actually can hold 2 spiral bound notebooks and I’m making a pair of them per her request. Wha...

4 days ago by Airframer | 3 comments »

When you have the attention span of a 1 year old things move a bit slow.. good thing the boy keeps me on task :D We made it to the big orange store and picked up most of what is needed for the vises.. Then yesterday I snuck outside to glue up the padouk strip so we can get to work on the endcaps and skirt etc.. Today the boy and I got it out of the clamps and got to work cleaning up the glue joint and making everything coplaner.. Then some cleanup.. And here is the ...

Garage Cabinets #7: workbench fronts and top

5 days ago by John Lowell | 3 comments »

another weekend, and working on the garage, again. Cut, shaped and edged the 3/4 in ply first layer, then cut and shaped the 3/4 top layer. Used small sheet, hence the three parts and mismatched backsplash. Also mounted the cab doors and drawer fronts. Need to do a better job on the drawer fronts, just have not figured out how. I tried dbl stick tape, but the drawer was slightly inside the cab so not enough pressure to stick. Oh well, slightly different spacing but it is in the garage. ...
