In-Law's Renovation #1: Work in Progress

02-01-2016 04:07 AM by AnthonyRH | 1 comment »

So the in-laws approached me about converting my wife’s old bedroom into a retreat for her dad. They wanted to do cheap yellow pine paneling on the walls and ceiling, and maybe a simple bookshelf or two. The purpose of the renovation was to try and capture the essence of a Colorado log cabin, which is a place where he has always felt comfortable. The room was carpeted, with hardwood underneath, and the walls were a blue-green color, with a unicorn wallpaper band around the top few in...

Shop Upgrades #11: Shop Reorganinzation

01-31-2016 04:54 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

1/29/16 No pics today regarding progress. Took a quick break from work to install (4) more husky wall tracks, then sort screws and nails on one of the workbenches. Not a big accomplishment but I’ve got one bench cleared and fasteners that were thrown on the bench put away. Shop may yet get in some sense of organization. 1/30/16 More of the same today, just sorting and putting hardware away. Got lots of hardware to sort through. Looking at the Granberg Chain Saw mill this afterno...

Making of the weaved box

01-30-2016 05:42 AM by BertFlores58 | 7 comments »

I am doing the second box. Luckily, photos can be taken to minimize explaining. Making of Hinges and also the top. The box is nearly complete so I will start on what is to be done.The hinge is made up of wood that I had a slot made independently then glued some pieces back in place. One of the black hinge was broken so I need to replace that… You can also see the middle part of the hinge have an offset insert. Remove the pin then complete the missing ebony. Let the p...

Standing Desk - live edge black walnut #1: step 1 find the wood... check

01-29-2016 07:52 PM by bmalloy | 0 comments »

Hi, I am making a standing desk for our home. The wood is on the way and I am trying to prep. I am totally new at finishing wood and working with black walnut. I own 43” of the wood from the bottom and it is 21” at the widest part. So I think I am gonna use Watco danish oil in the natural color and I already have satin arm-r-seal on the way. I understand that the dust is toxic so I plan on sanding outside. I am suffering a mid-west winter in the USA, would t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1688: Deadlines

01-29-2016 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that I am always working on some sort of  'deadline'.  I know that people think of those who are self-employed as being free to do whatever they choose whenever they wish to do it. While we may find that our schedules are a bit flexible at times, I honestly believe that if we follow the 'take-the-day-to-go-to-the-beach' mentality that so many perceive us to have too often, it is with near certainty that our business will fail. The entrepreneurs that I h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1687: Encouragement

01-28-2016 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been another couple of very busy days. I am very fortunate that things are going so well and things keep me so busy. Not everything about what I do though is 'blog-worthy' or what I feel would be of interest. After all – how many times do you want to see photos of blank ornaments that I cut?  I am sure it loses its impact after a bit. But my month of January has been pretty much spent at the scroll saw.  (or packaging boxes, or answering emails!)  Whil...
