Basketweave Box w/White Roses #1: #1 Making the basketweave pieces

10-07-2016 11:30 PM by DonSol | 2 comments »

About a year and a half ago I got a picture in my head of a box with basketweave, white roses and a tiger swallowtail. After a few days sketching and different ideas I came up with a design. This blog will show how I did the marquetry for this box. I did not take pictures while building the box, the marquetry was my main priority. I wanted it to look like something that was made to be used, not fancy, utilitarian, etc. The white oak for the box frame came out of a 100+ year old barn co...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1786: Mystery SOLVED!

10-07-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am happy to report today that the "Mystery of the Missing Little Pusheen" has been SOLVED!  (I know that you all have probably lost sleep over it!  ;) )  It seems that when Keith awoke and got out of bed, there was the little toy snuggled into the covers with him!  Apparently, Richard my kitty had brought me the Little Pusheen earlier and then left the ADDITIONAL Kitty at the doorway after Keith came to bed and the door was closed. So he really had brought me T...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1785: A Crime of Passion

10-06-2016 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

(Before anyone gets upset – This is just a fun story!) I awoke this morning just as I did any other 'normal' day. It wasn't quite daylight yet and the sun was just beginning to peek over the eastern horizon. As it gently but persistently began to illuminate the morning sky, I knew it was time to begin my day. I openend my bedroom door to see what my cat, Richard had left me today. Lately, for the past week or so, he has been depositing my little knit Pusheen toy at...

Delivered projects #1: Demolition and integration of a Kitchen in Westport Connecticut

10-04-2016 02:01 AM by PrimoCarpentry | 0 comments »

Hello, My name is Wilson. I am a Carpenter and I run a carpentry company here in Danbury CT. We’ve been serving the Lower Connecticut county for almost 10 years. This is my first blog here, I hope you enjoy it. I have started to film my jobs to show people the whole process including the effort needed in order to accomplish a project. Sometimes the customer does not understand all the obstacles involved. I really do believe that they can understand how they have invested with us. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1784: Settling In

10-03-2016 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It was a crazy/busy weekend. That means it went perfectly with my crazy/busy life of late. As usual, there is just so much I want to accomplish and only 24 meager hours per day to fit everything in. And for some reason – those hours seem to get shorter every year. I think it is some kind of trick . . . I am writing later than usual today because I have already been to the gym and back.  I am not usually one of those who boasts about my gym visits, but lately, whenever I c...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1782: Emotional Real Estate

09-29-2016 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Did you ever feel that you were running in lots of directions at once?  Lately, that is exactly how things have felt for me. I have been busy from the time I wake until the time I finally go to sleep, but have been going from one thing to another to yet another. I don't think that this is a bad thing at all, really. Because in the process, I am checking off a lot of things that I wanted to get done and in the end, accomplishing a great deal.  To the outsider, it may not loo...

bathroom cabinet #1: Progress!

09-28-2016 03:00 AM by McFly | 0 comments »

Neighbor asked if I’d consider making a pullout cabinet for her newly remodeled bathroom. Came up with a sketch she liked and ran with it. The shelves are genuine mahogany with maple & wenge accent dots, and the large side panel is cherry and maple. Took awhile to get this far working weekends and before/after work and I still have quite a long ways to go. I believe these pics should be in chronological order beginning with the roughly dimensioned shelves getting dominoes and end...

Craftsman Table Saw Restortion #3: New On/Off switch, Finish Assembly, Vega Fence

09-27-2016 02:15 PM by Chris Januski | 3 comments »

I should have been updating this more often instead of posting all of the pictures at once but I guess I’ll be better about it next time. Once the base and frame were assembled I opened the motor and found how jammed it was full of saw dust. After cleaning it out I changed out the switch for a paddle switch. After the switch was mounted I enclosed the bottom of the saw with plywood for dust collection. I installed the factory fence and realized how wobbly it was so I upgraded to a V...
