Dutch Tool Chest #3: construction begins (dovetail sides to bottom)

03-11-2015 02:04 PM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

It started with me cutting my sides, bottom, and shelves/dividers to rough length with my xcut D8 on sawbench, then cleaning/squaring up the ends with my Stanley #4 1/2 and the sides with my #5 1/2 and #8. I then ganged sides up in my moxon and go in house and refresh my memory on layout with Megan Fitzpatricks youtube video . I then proceed to mark out my tails and to cut them. I ran into some trouble, what little practice i had with cutting some dovetails was with completely seaso...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1514: SHEEP!!!!

03-11-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is NOT snowing today.It is hazy and dull outside, and I can see the tops of the bare trees waving slightly in the breeze. There are still mountains of snow – some drifts 3-4 feet high – and they are no longer that beautiful pristine white, but rather rather dirty looking and grey. As I look out to my car, however, I notice that the banks of snow that surround it no longer have it completely encased. They have pulled back quite a bit, leaving a gap between the wall of snow and t...

Dutch Tool Chest #2: setup and a beginning

03-11-2015 11:55 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

I needed a few things to happen before i started this build. The chest joinery, while fairly simple, required me to have a few fixtures and tools i did not have. Since i have full intention to do this with hand tools, this required a few jigs as well. One of the big parts of making this chest was the Dovetailed bottom. I have never attempted to cut a dovetail before this, though have always wanted to try. I did not have a true dovetail saw, though not necessarily needed. I have a couple ch...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #34: "Hard Maple Rocks!" Headphones Rack - Mounted

03-11-2015 12:16 AM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

In the My Projects section I posted the completion of a rustic headphones rack for my ancient audio-technica AT-703 headphones. Since that post I added another coat of Danish oil and a final finish of The Original Formula Johnson Paste Wax. Here is what it looks like without the headphones: ...and with the headphones: And here is a view of the main workstation area of the office, showing the rack in place: This was a rewarding build, true to my scratch-building nature ...

Dutch Tool Chest #1: need a place to store my handtools

03-10-2015 11:19 PM by Tugboater78 | 7 comments »

(photo stolen from below mentioned blog, for inspiration) Since i seen C Shwarz blog about his Dutch Tool Chest i have been planning to make one. I like the Anarchist Tool Chest as well but the idea of having to bend over to get my tools out did not appeal to me. Wall hung tool racks I like but the constant humidity/temperature changes where I live plays hell on my tools. I waited for the Pop Wood article to come out in Oct 2013. I looked it over and went to the Blue store and picke...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1513: CHICKS!!!!!!

03-10-2015 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I featured a sweet bunny basket and accessory pattern. I mentioned that it was just one of four new designs that I completed over the weekend. While I showed you some "snapshots" of the finished project, I spent the day taking what I call 'presentation photos' of all four projects. Having nice photos is really helpful when selling patterns. I find that people enjoy not only seeing nice, clear photos of what the pattern includes, but also likes suggestions of h...

No much new

03-09-2015 05:26 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Been a month or two since I last got into the shop, work, household chores, helping son with an engine swap and getting new truck. Managed to route out a sign—still needs finishing—for my newly fenced in pasture. Finished Roof of Goat Barn—still a lot of wall and door work to do. Decided on the RapidAire 1/4” tubing kit, but haven’t had the time to order, much less install. Hopefully, end of month I’ll have a weekend free to finish sign and router tab...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1512: BUNNIES!!!!!

03-09-2015 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend! It just goes to show that when I set my mind to doing things, I can really accomplish a lot. On Friday I finished up three drawings for new patterns.  It may not seem like a lot, but I keep adding little extras to make them even more special and allow those who purchased the patterns to do lots with them.To me, patterns are much more than just handing off some line work. Especially in scroll sawing, where the lines are what we follow with the saw. While the...

Shaker Style End table #4: Glue ups. Just glue ups

03-08-2015 11:48 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

And maybe a Dutchman, too. Got the top over to the cleaned off (!!!) workbench. Worked on fitting the two breadboard edges to almost no gaps. Add some glue, clamp it down Until the gaps close up. Since this is a three board top, I used three 5/8” brads, in the center of each board. Set the top aside. Almost tripped over the Shop Cat He is looking a little digusted with me, I am interrupting his Mousing, Ok, top is out of the way for awhile. Took apart the base, and...
