My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1626: Update Day

09-24-2015 10:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I got up early this morning and it is still dark two hours later. It is odd how quickly the days get shorter once a certain point is reached. It is getting dark much sooner as well, and I suspect that is why I wound up going to bed shortly after 10pm my time. It just seemed like my day was done. I love these cool, autumn mornings. Even though we are only a day into autumn, it is nice to be able to say that. I sat on the deck yesterday with the cats for a bit, just taking in the warm sun ...

Building For The Wife #6: Kitchen peg board for utensils.

09-24-2015 08:32 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

Right after she loaded all of her things into her new kitchen bureau, my wife was cleaning the sawdust off of her Jars of things that I had borrowed and putting them in her new spice rack. She glanced at the side of the refrigerator, which is just right of her new bureau, which sits between that and and her stove, and decided that she needed a utensil hanger there. What she described like a piece of plywood nailed to a 2x that extended out from the end of the cabinet where it came up agains...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #6: Glue Up

09-23-2015 11:12 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

I drilled and chopped out the wire passages for the pickups then glued the beast to the neck with Titebond III.Wire routes. It will weigh about 7#.I should be able to trim some weight as I shape it. Before gluing I cutout the body at the bandsaw with a 1/4” blade. I used the scrap as caul and I also had to put some tape on the top of the body to level it with the neck. The glue-up was done face down on a board and tapped into into alignment against the board while tightening th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1625: Purpose and Meaning Through Art

09-23-2015 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

At some time or another in our lives, most of us search for our purpose here on Earth. The reason we are here. The meaning of what our life is and why we are here in the first place. We want our lives to have meaning and purpose, I believe. We want to think that all the hard work and things we go through on a daily basis are for a reason. That somehow, in some small way we make a difference in the world. That somehow we make it better. There are professions that are obviously noble....

Building For The Wife #4: Constructing drawers and breadboard no 2

09-23-2015 01:53 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

Having constructed the shell and the drawers for my wife’s new kitchen bereau, I still needed to complete the breadboard. The sanding disc for the table saw will put on a glass smooth edge. I was careful to take very light passes so that I did not burn the edge instead. I decided that a pine front would not be strong enough for the breadboard, so I cut out a piece of maple. I might have used a sander or router for this, but I used a spokeshave, a hand plane, and a profile sc...

Building For The Wife #5: Quick and dirty spice rack with doors

09-23-2015 01:39 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

With the finish drying on her bureau, a process that was taking forever because I used from a can of Ace extra slow drying polyurethane on the top, My wife reminded me that she wanted the finish to be extra smooth with lots of coats so that she could roll out dough on the countertop, and that I needed put up the spice cabinet when I brought in her new bureau so that she could organize everything affected by the change all at once with minimal disruption to her kitchen. Unbeknownst to her, ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1624: Little by Little

09-22-2015 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Good things take time. I have to keep reminding myself of that. In today's world of 'instant gratification', we sometimes forget that everything we have and want can't always happen in an instant. Sometimes there is just no way around taking the proper steps and doing things methodically. I am often reminded of this with my work. While I see a 'vision' of my finished project in my head, I don't always see the many steps it will require to get to that poin...
