"a Hunter's Cane" - a design for a commissioned cane

04-25-2011 05:11 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

I have been exchanging emails for several months with a lady regarding a cane design for her father. Her father has hunted extensively and has strong connections to Minnesota and Colorado. I had some ideas for a design and we refined those ideas over several months. The lady wanted to use wood from Minnesota and Colorado for the cane and for it to have hunting themes and connections to places important to her father. This is to be a gift to her father from her and her brothers for this Fa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #320: Pacing Yourself

04-25-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I got up just after six this morning, which is just about right. It is good to feel like I am getting back to normal. I think six a.m. is a fine hour to wake up. Not too early whereas you would feel sleep deprived, yet early enough to get a jump on the day. It is just about right as far as I am concerned. I feel refreshed and highly motivated after the last two days. Stepping away from things for a bit really does wonders. Even if it is a half-step and I am still working on projects,...

DESIGNS FOR WOOD STRIPS #4: 90 degrees bend by cut and paste

04-25-2011 04:15 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

I have changed the concept on the beveled joint for the rainbow strips. I know it will be difficult to cut and paste (glue) in reality if you are dealing with the 10 mm x 8mm strips of wood. Cutting it with the miter saw will require a tremendous control and patience. The wood wasted by kerf of 2.5 mm will add to my worry if ever I make a mistake then I cannot afford to loose more from what is remaining on my wooded strips. Dealing with the risk of doing things is already mindblogging. Bu...

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...

Bootstrapping a living-room workbench #1: First cut

04-24-2011 02:56 PM by Damien Pollet | 1 comment »

So there it is, my first serious woordworking project! The plan is to buid a small but sturdy workbench from a laminated wood countertop, not unlike Kenneth's.I can dedicate some permanent room to mine in my living room, so it will probably be a little bigger, heavier and less quickly breakable down. I also intend to put some time into nice joinery and finishing, since it will be a visible piece of furniture, but that will depend on how I manage the big things (this will be my first chisel...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #318: New Project Finished

04-23-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Throughout the week of still catching up and making videos and probably thinking a bit too much, I did manage to complete my first project(s) for my submissions to the magazine for their Holiday issue. Last year I was fortunate enough to have several different projects and ornaments accepted. Between my partner Keith and myself we were well represented. I believe that it was my all time high as far as number of projects published with four. This year because of many reasons, I am only ...
