My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #607: "And Now For Something Completely Different"

02-08-2012 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

For some strange reason, yesterday I just decided to switch gears. I still have the final proof reading of the boot pattern to do, but I wanted to get away from it for a day and move on to something else. Besides, we are looking at a site update by the weekend and I wanted to have something new up there for March that others will also like to do. So I refocused. And here is what I came up with: Well . . . part of it anyway. You didn’t really think that I was going to show ...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #4: An addition to the family: AKA Tool Gloat

02-08-2012 08:24 AM by DIYaholic | 1 comment »

No real progress to speak of. Instead of eliminating clutter, I added to it! I was checking CL the other day and spotted an add for a $265.00 HD Gift Card for $140.00!!! Yup, $125.00 of FREE money. I combined the (free) $125.00 with $80.00 of real money of my own and purchased…........... I’ve been eyeing this sander for a couple of weeks. JACKPOT!!! And Damn, It looks great next to it’s BIG brother! Now that I have a “workable” shop, it’s time...

2012 School Competition Projects #1: Jalen's Blacker House Chair - Getting started

02-07-2012 11:13 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

My son is doing a project for a school competition and a couple of months ago he came across some photos of the Blacker House chair and fell in love with it. He is a big fan of the Greene and Greene style and is currently reading books on the history of the Greene and Hall brothers. Here’s the problem his project has to be complete in March. We have spent hours searching the web and everything I find is incomplete and very inconsistent. We contacted some people on the web that we kn...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #606: The Anatomy of a Pattern Packet

02-07-2012 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent most of yesterday writing the pattern packet for the little boot ornaments. Writing one pattern doesn’t seem like it should take a full day, but I finished it around 9:30 at night. It turned out to be 18 pages long. That’s a lot for 12 ornaments. It is like a small book. But after looking at it, I don’t think it is too much. It is just what it needs to be. No more. No less. Here is the cover picture from it: I find that creating painting pattern packets...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

02-07-2012 04:51 AM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #605: Bringing Old things to Life

02-06-2012 03:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am a bit late in posting today because there was a little switch-up on our schedule. We decided to get to the gym as early as possible so we could get back here as soon as possible and get to work. I think Keith is feeling the same sense of being overwhelmed as I have been feeling the past couple of days. There always seems so much to do and last night at 9:30 as we were both still working on stuff for the business, I heard him mutter “why aren’t there 48 hours in a day?”...

Building an Acoustic Guitar #1: Building an Acoustic Guitar

02-05-2012 09:31 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 9 comments »

I’ve been rather busy with life the last couple years, but I’m finally back in the shop and up to no good again! Here’s what I’m up to for anyone who’s interested… A few years back I was conversing with a co-worker and fellow guitar player. Aware I was an amateur woodworker, he suggested I build a guitar. “Luthiery requires special tools and skills…training. Naw, I couldn’t do that,” I said. Google search. Fast forward to la...

Done: Simple Headboard Build

02-05-2012 06:30 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 129 comments »

Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut ‘wormy walnut’ sapwood that isn’t good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough (and wide enough) to do the job before me. Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...
