Another simple little box? #3: Lid work

05-04-2016 09:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, sanded down some of the fingers that were sticking up.. After which, I ran a small combo square and a pencil around Trying to land somewhere besides right on a pin. Plane was to saw the lid part from the box’s bottom. Handsaw would be a bit too rough on things, and get into a bind. Bandsaw? A bit hard to do, and see where I was cutting. Yard sale item might just work… I cut one end first, to get the hang of using this heavy saw. Then cut the long side...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1730: #1730 A Box Filled With "Possibilities"

05-04-2016 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

What is better than a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box?Why a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box filled with supplies, of course! Yesterday, I showed you the lovely box that I snagged on the Derwent site last weekend. For the price (about $140 CDN or $115 USD SHIPPED from England) I was thrilled with the quality and workmanship that Derwent used to build it. But let's face it – the reason that I ordered it in the first place was to use it for storing my odds an...

Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1729: Boxing Day

05-03-2016 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As an artist, I love getting new supplies. Besides loving to work in so many different types of media, being active on the internet and participating in classes and online forums exposes me to many, many different new and exciting products. It really keeps my creative juices flowing and I love trying new techniques and products. It is a wonderful part of what I do. Many of you know that I live in a very small place. Keith and I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for over seven years n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1728: Patience

05-02-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Sometimes I think I am my own worst enemy. There are times – especially when I am designing – that I am very, very hard on myself and just not happy with the way things are going. As a result, the things I do often take a great deal of time for me to complete. I wind up changing things and re-doing them several times before I even show them to you all. There are even times when these projects are scrapped and put in a drawer or completely discarded. Although I am happy to say that...

Turning project - Mother's day gifts #2: Blanks roughed out and first vase turned

05-02-2016 02:29 AM by Mike_D_S | 0 comments »

So I had picked up a nice piece of maple 4×4x8” and a rosewood block 4×8x8”. They are big enough to get these projects done, so I split the rosewood block into two 4×4x8” pieces on the bandsaw. I have some inexpensive HF turning tools I bought to get started and a few of the easy wood tools with the carbide tips. I had bought the Rikon low speed grinder that was on sale last month, but it as on backorder. It finally came in, so before I got started, I se...

05-01-2016 07:47 PM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

DOWNDRAFT TABLE BUILD – 2016 This is a project I needed to do to work on my boxes. I’m sharing details for LJ’s who might want to build their own if they haven’t already. Minnesota winter means enclosed shop. Dust! I needed a table that would fill a number of functions for me. I wanted a large enough space to sand furniture parts as well as making boxes. I’m providing this blog for those of you who want to make a slightly larger down draft table/box. I...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...
