My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1841: Classic Amy Joanne Halloween Ornament Club

06-14-2017 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the best things about being a designer is that I get to 'hang around' other artistic and creative people. With all the negativity in the world these days, it is good to have a place to focus where only positive thoughts are allowed inside. That is how I treat my "Creative Place". Because my Creative Place is not a physical location and more or less a state of mind, I can be there anytime I wish, any day of the week. I only have to shift my thinking a bit and I ca...

rebuilding an old knife #1: Knife restoration

06-14-2017 12:56 AM by jeffswildwood | 8 comments »

Hello. This is my first blog series on something I think will be fun. Of coarse I would like all the help and advice I can get as I am very new at this. I redid the handle on a knife a while ago and really enjoyed it. Since then I had wanted to try it again and began searching for a worthy one to do. Well, I found one and thought I would share the journey as I may have bit off more then I can chew. Here is the one I found to do. This guy is in...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1840: The "Maiden Voyage" Completed!

06-13-2017 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After what seemed like a long, long time, I have finally completed the first (and largest and most complex) piece from Lynne Andrews' Inspirational Ark series! I can't express the wonderful sense of accomplishment that I feel right now. It isn't that the piece was particularly difficult or complex, but it has been painted at a time when I have been incredibly busy (ironically – from cutting ARKS for this series) and my part of our business was somewhat being re-shaped and tu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1839: #1839 More New Projects

06-12-2017 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

What a beautiful and busy weekend we had! There is something about the nice weather that just makes us want to 'do' things, isn't there? Even though Friday was a rather dark and dreary day, with heavy rain for most of the day, things calmed down by the evening and both Saturday and Sunday were warm, sunny and picture-perfect!  We couldn't have asked for better!  I was actually rather happy for the rain on Friday, as it gave all the flowers and plants that I just...

Side table

I have long admired Sheraton furniture, I believe in America this inspired an impressive “New Style” called “Federal” I have always wanted to build a piece and having admired the skill of many of the builders of fine projects on this site. Now retired, I thought it was time to fulfill this ambition so I have at last made a start. I’ve decided I’ll inlay my designs rather than veneer, Paul the Shipwright is an absolute master with a Chevalet and Lumberjocks ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1838: Happy Mail and New Projects!

06-08-2017 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I'll begin today's post with some news that I just found out. My photos source for all my blog posts (Image Box) just informed me when I signed in that it is "closing" as of June 30th. Even though I haven't been blogging much lately, I used to do so just about every day, so you can imagine the number of photos that I have stored there. What it will mean to you, my readers is that when you go to my older blogs, the images that use that address (all except

Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubir√° “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

Workbench #13: The Gapstop

06-05-2017 01:03 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 3 comments »

Stating the obvious here, but Benchcrafted’s split-top Roubo bench uses two slabs for the top. Rather than joining them, they are kept separate throughout the build. Another component, the “gapstop” goes between them, and offers some additional functionality. This is one of the features that sold me on the Benchcrafted design. I bought some nice birch to use for the gap stop. It has a bit of color that will add a little contrast between the white 2×4s of the rest of ...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #7: Back is completed

06-04-2017 04:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, a little bit of catching up.. Had a couple strong armed ( and back) youngsters ( 22 and 24 yr olds) haul the case up out of the shop… And get the Boss’ approval. Finished pantry will go against the wall… And replace this “too small” cupboard. Today, I decided to bring things upstairs to cut the last piece for the back. I have a saw bench outside on the back patio. Hauled the tools upstairs with no problems…..getting the back up th...
