My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1823: Hello, Painting My Old Friend

02-23-2017 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

One would think that with me having a full-time business as a designer, that the majority of my day would be painting, drawing, and cutting new designs on the scroll saw, wouldn't they?  But lately, it seems that the 'business' aspects of our business fill much of the day, and sometimes there is little time left to do the creative things, let alone create for my own pleasure. I am not complaining, mind you. I am thrilled that things are moving in a good direction. I trul...

Shop storage projects #23: Chisel dresser: final details done

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just about wrapped this project up. Had to set it up on the bench.. Had to measure for a kicker for the bottom drawer… Glue and a couple screws to hold it in place. Measured for a plywood back… Again, glue and screws. Started applying cleats to hold the top in place… Then added the top… No glue, just enough screws to hold things still, is all. Couple at each end. added this cleat ( on the wrong side, at that) to hold the shelf support in ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1822: My Shop (A Tour!)

02-21-2017 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had a crazy/busy weekend (again!)   I had hoped to have some time to paint, but it just wasn't in the cards for me yet. That doesn't mean that I didn't have a productive couple of days. It was quite the opposite. Many of you who have followed me regularly here on the blog may have noticed that I am not posting as much. It isn't because I am not working as much or doing as much creating, but it is more because the 'production' side of my business has really ...

Convertible Wall Easel #1: Wall Rails

02-18-2017 07:03 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

This is an odd item. I paint. The mediums I use are Oil and sometimes watercolor. When painting with oil you usually stand in front of an easel that is vertical. When using water colors, you usually paint at a table as the paper is often wet. Sometimes very wet so you paint with the paper horizontal. Thus, I decided to make an easel that is usable in both the vertical and horizontal mode. I also wanted one that was attached to the wall and made as to not be as conspicuous as a large artist ea...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1821: Back in the Swing of Things!

02-17-2017 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

One thing about posting here less often – when I do post there is so much to share with you all! I feel like things are going fast forward again and I am back on the 'creative track' after a bleak two months for me. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I usually try to look at the good side of even the not-so-good thing that happen. But sometimes, that just doesn't work. Try as I did, I found it hard to feel good about things.  It was time for me to s...

Shop storage projects #22: Frame works, false fronts, and other mishaps.....

02-17-2017 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, trying to get caught up here. Had the sides done, and the drawer ready to be glued up. Needed to build some webframes to make this into a case to hold two drawers… First I set aside a blank to make a false front for the bottom drawer, to ensure it didn’t get resawn down to make a the frames… Caption says this is a tenon cutter. That is only half right, as I have to move the jig one more time.. To make these “dominoes”. When all were cut, I wou...

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...

Shop Upgrades #25: Kaisen Foam: Door and Latch Kit

02-16-2017 03:26 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I’m a big fan of the Rigid Modular Tool box series. I use these tool boxes mainly to organize my Ryobi ONE+ tools into grab and go kits for projects around the town. I’ve a few other Battery tools hung for easier access, such as drills. But most of my woodshop are either hand tools or power tools, so portability for out of shop work trumped in-shop convenience. The a couple of weeks ago I had gotten some kaizen foam to organize my shop(s) better. First off was my measur...
