My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1611: New Designs for Autumn

08-27-2015 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a cool, gentle rain and the sun wasn't even really up yet. I have noticed this past week that whether it is cloudy or not, it is taking longer and longer to get light in the mornings.Something else changed as well. That cool, crispness is in the air again. After the heavy humidity and warmth that we experienced last week, it seems we have turned another page and are beginning a new chapter of seasons. Autumn is definitely knocking at our door. I never mind t...

Veggie Bin / Cookbook Shelf #2: Finally Getting Started !

08-27-2015 02:54 AM by RandyH | 0 comments »

This blog is now about a Work In Progress. Well, its been a long time since I first posted this – but I have been putting together a little bit of a woodshop out in my garage. This has taken a lot of effort in getting the space cleaned up, cleared out and improved. I first built a set of large storage shelves for putting all (or at least most of) our storage bins onto. This created a lot of usable floor space. I also added insulation above the garage, and glued 2” thick foam...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1610: Keeping Busy

08-26-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are few things that make me feel better than seeing someone enjoying my patterns and making projects from them. After all – the reason I began designing in the first place was so others could learn and have fun with them. I try to make each pattern I create into a mini-lesson, so that people of all skill levels can create the project themselves. Often I get notes or emails asking me if I mind if people change up my designs a little bit. Not only do I not mind it, but I encour...

Building Two Baptismal Fonts #1: Design and Modeling

08-25-2015 05:27 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I am in the process of building two baptismal fonts. One for a chapel for the Presbyterian Center in Louisville and one for my local congregation. I’m a theologian by training and a woodworker for fun. I sort of stumbled into these projects. This will be a long process, and I’ll try to keep up some blog entries, but it will a bit irregular. I’m starting with the one for my local congregation. Here is the basic model I am working with: I need to make some chang...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #4: Phase 1 complete

08-24-2015 03:02 PM by jonlruss | 1 comment »

I was able to spend a little time in the garage this weekend and finish up what I’m calling phase 1 of my table saw project. The saw’s been cleaned, lubed, tuned, a new fence installed, and now the paddle switch and a power strip have been added. I really like the way the mount for the switch turned out. It’s solid and not in the way while being easily accessible. I still couldn’t get the aluminum weld to work. I think my propane torch just couldn’t get the heat ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1608: Back to Creating

08-24-2015 11:08 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a much needed break, I am back and finally feel ready to move forward in a productive manner. It isn't because I have been short of ideas. Actually it is quite the contrary. I have so many things that I want to do that I seem to have been somewhat 'stuck' as to which direction I want to head first. It is as if all the thoughts and ideas have bottle-necked in my head and as a result, I have been quite overwhelmed.Add to that my little back issue that remained (I haven...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #55: Seasoned Maple Boards

08-23-2015 11:07 PM by Paul Bucalo | 9 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I picked up twelve 8’ 4” boards (various widths and somewhere around an inch-plus in thickness) for $2.00 USD each. The seller had 18 to sell and his advertisement said must buy all. It didn’t take long to see that some were rotted completely or enough that they wouldn’t ever be useful. The twelve I found would yield a good 80% or more, so I talked him into the price each for only twelve. I didn’t think that was a bad price. Here’s ...

Shop Projects #6: finally organized in the chickens storage

08-22-2015 08:03 PM by fiddlebanshee | 0 comments »

I needed badly some shelving to organize the feed and other paraphernalia for the chickens. I also wanted to divide an area in the garage into two parts, one being my weaving studio and the other the afore mentioned storage. I finally got it done, although the areas have not been totally closed off from each other yet. I need my carpenter friend to come and hang a door for me and I could use some extra hands to close off the top portion above the shelves. That will have to wait until weR...

Age of Refinished Antique Chest

08-22-2015 01:52 AM by niftynoel | 9 comments »

I’ve almost completed refinishing this old chest, and I’m curious to know from experts out there, just what era it might be from. I simply stripped it and coated all wood (pine) with shellac and 3 coats of General Finishes top coat. We bought it from a furniture restorer / antique dealer south of Lapeer, Michigan in 1976. I always assumed it was a carpenter’s chest, but I am now not so sure. It is clearly hand hewn, uses wood pin joinery, and what seem to be hand wrought square nails. •...
