Victorian Skater Pond Scene #7: Stephen - The Little Sledding Boy

09-25-2010 06:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Stephen loves sledding. Although he tried his best at ice skating, for some reason he wound up slidng on his bottom more than gliding on his skates. Last Christmas Santa brought his a beautiful red sled. Stephen was thrilled! He couldn’t wait to pull that sled up the highest hill in town and come soaring back down. Now THIS was fun! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures No more skinny blades for him! He is riding in style from now on!

night table

09-25-2010 04:48 PM by dub560 | 0 comments »

i decided to make a nite table with the scraps that i had remaining from the dresser project. i had some problems tapering on the table saw though—i don’t know why but for some reason it never comes out good—the plunge saw saved the day though. yeah, anyway i had some poplar, 1/2 and 1 piece of 3/4 (small piece)plywood laying around and thought i’d make something of it. right now i’m at the point of tinkering with the drawers to get a perfect fit—sin...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

09-25-2010 01:57 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...

Platform Bed #1: Inspiration and Requirements

09-24-2010 05:40 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

Soon I’ll be delving into the design of my next project, a queen-size platform bed for my wife and myself to share. These first two images are the best examples of the overall look I’ll be going for. I love the low set of these beds coupled with the overhang of the platform. They have a cleanliness of line that lends a lot of elegance to a simple structure and allows the material to be the star. The built-in side tables are a must for achieving this look. We don’t...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #6: Anna and Jacqueline

09-24-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Anna and Jacqueline are sisters. Although they sometimes quarrel, they are truly best friends. Anna, the eldest of the two is quite a tomboy. She loves to run and climb and play sports. Her mother bought her a wonderful woolen plaid coat in hopes of encouraging her to act more like a ‘lady’, but Anna sees it more of a nuisance. Why does she have to be a girl anyway? Jacqueline, on the other hand, loves being a girl. Her favorite playthings are her soft, cuddly teddy bear...

My Steampunk Telescope #1: The pieces so far

09-24-2010 02:02 AM by TelescopeMaker | 7 comments »

I make telescopes.This is my first big one. O, so its not so big, its only 12” in diameter, and big (to me) is 20”. But its big enough for me, and something that I have wanted to do since I was a kid. It will be completely functional, and it will also (eventually) be tricked out in the Steampunk style – brass, wood, gears and fancy stuff. This is a close up of an older version of what I am making. This is what I have so far. Its held together with clamps right no...

9 Dollar Workbench project #1: Part 1 - From old steel desk to nice looking work table

09-23-2010 09:34 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

I am one of those people who loves to find good deals on old tools and furniture that needs to be refinished. Restoring and refinishing furniture and homes is what got me interested in wood working to begin with. With that said I was at a re-sale shop a few weeks ago and found an old steel desk/table that they were only asking 6 dollars for. What made it stand out to me was its size. It wasn’t to large and it looked like the perfect size for a power tool stand or small work table. It al...

Tapered Display Tower - beetle-kill pine #3: It's dry ... and it's fits. I call it ...

09-23-2010 01:01 AM by NBeener | 17 comments »

a dry fit ! Let’s start with today’s inspiration: a peanut butter cookie, half of which was dipped in chocolate. Uh. Yum ! The “not-so-secret” secret drawer ;-) It’s got feet ! A shelf…. The top…. Got some band saw work, ahead of me, to cut out the fake tenons and wedges. Soon, though. Very soon. Thanks for looking :-)

Picture Frames #2: progress

09-22-2010 09:02 PM by Camper | 2 comments »

I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong. The frame clamping strap from woodcraft for $1.75 works great!! :) I also applied some danish oil on half of a scrap piece and there is a...
