My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1746: 50 Shades of Grey and Other Adventures

07-15-2016 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

If anything, we are learning that expanding to a full sized home from a one bedroom apartment is an 'adventure'.  While customizing things to our own needs and preferences is fun, it is a lot of work and takes a great deal of time. Yesterday we decided to take off to New Minas – a town that is about two hours away – as that is where the nearest Home Depot store is located. I mentioned before that I had not finished with my scroll saw room and one of the things th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1745: The Scroll Saw Room - My "Little Shop"

07-13-2016 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today's post won't be too long, but I wanted to show the progress that I made yesterday. As I mentioned, getting things how we like will be a 'work in progress'.  For people like Keith and myself, we have little understanding of that concept. We like to have everything done quickly, efficiently and pretty close to immediately. We are just like that. But in life, things can't always happen instantly. I think that the older we get, the more we realize it. No matter...

Crate Wood Creations #1: Furniture for Friends

07-13-2016 05:25 AM by BRobins | 1 comment »

I have recently starting scratching the itch that has been the desire to finally get into woodworking. I have wanted to do this for a long time, but never had the opportunity to really start until recently. Some friends of ours moved into a new house and were needing some furniture. They had seen some projects on Pinterest made from crates and were going to ask someone else to make them, but I saw my opportunity and jumped on it. There began the journey into many YouTube videos and trip...

Shop stuff #53: For Sara conclusion

07-12-2016 04:29 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

More trials and tribulations finishing up the box I made for my daughter. In the end it all worked out though. I did have a bit of a conflict putting it up. Seems it can not be shown in Germany as there is a copyright issue with the part of the song I used at the end. It is not like I am making any money doing this. My channel is very small with few subscribers as I don’t promote it much. I am not good at the whole social media thing and not much of a promoter. I just do it for...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1744: Routines

07-12-2016 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Routines. We need them for order, guidance and pacing. They help us set and keep goals and they keep us organized and productive.  Some people don't like routines, but I am one who embraces them completely. Perhaps that is from being around cats all of my life, as they are big fans of routines, as are many animals. The past several weeks have been anything but "routine" for me. From the time we first saw our new home early in March, I have been a bit out of step. ...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #7: Getting there

07-11-2016 06:22 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

Was able to get quite a bit done this weekend. I had most of the parts already cut from last weekend so this weekend was mostly assembling and painting. This is the mobile base that was already done. Saturday everything was moving along pretty smoothly in spite of the heat. For the sake of working space and air circulation, I moved out to the driveway and set up a canopy. I thought I was going to make it further, but late in the afternoon, I was inside taking a cooling off break when ...

A journey into the workshop. #108: Shop cleanup. What I didn't show in the video.

07-11-2016 02:34 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

So if you’v watched my video,” “Dave Talks, What no woodworking?””:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvExGzf_WZI from my Lumberjocks blog post here http://lumberjocks.com/dbhost/blog/89074 there are a few things that need to be noted. #1. This wasn’t my first take. My first take for this video showed me actually cleaning the miter saw bench, But it wasn’t interesting in the slightest, and the video came out badly, so out it went. #2. The drill pre...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1743: I'm BACK!!

07-11-2016 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! Even though I didn't get much 'work' done, I don't think I have ever worked harder in  my life. Perhaps it is because I am a touch older now (EGADS!) Or maybe it was because this was the first time that I had to not only move myself, but a moderately successful business as well. It certainly entailed much more than I had anticipated. But all went well and there were barely any hiccups in the process. We were fortunate in so many r...

Jointer #2: De-rusting

07-10-2016 10:22 PM by mIps | 2 comments »

Well, I finally had a chance to start tackling the jointer cleanup. luckily the in/out-feed tables were fairly clean and had only light rust. I took two passes with rust cleaner on both and then a light sand with WD-40 as “lubricant”. They cleaned right up and look good. The cutter head is a different story. It’s more rusted and harder to clean. I did the best I could with a wire brush and a green scrub pad. I’ll know later if I helped any in getting the old blades ou...
