Current Project #5: Table Taking Shape

09-04-2014 07:49 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

It’s starting to look like a table, even if it is upside down. While sanding the bottom edges today I learned some lessons of what NOT to do when I sand the top. I’ve attached the skirt to the top using homemade cleats(?) with over-sized holes for the screws. I should be starting the base tomorrow. (I might mention that the picnic table on which this project sits was also one of my creations. It works, but it’s a little bit too rustic to be called woodworking, more ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1396: It's a Beautiful Day for an Update!

09-04-2014 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

While yesterday seemed like a LONG day in more ways than one (long stories – never mind!) at the end of the day when things were all said and done, I was able to sit back and look at the accomplishments and feel pretty good about things. There are some times when I really feel as if I move slow with things. I paint slow. I draw slow. I design slow. But as I look at all the projects that I have finished up, I can honestly look back with a sense of pride that what I have done is some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1395: Good Things Are Worth the Wait

09-03-2014 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #26: Project or Blog?

09-02-2014 11:39 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I debated where to put this, then decided to stick with my Blog! I had a makeshift lumber rack made out of an old prison bunk-bed frame, it did it’s job, but it took up too much space, then last week I watched Jay Bates from Jays Custom Creations, construct a simple lumber rack made from 2×4s and metal conduit on YouTube, and that spurred me on to build a new rack. I hitched up the trailer and went off to Homecenter, bought a stack of 2×4s and some other timber for othe...

Wegner inspired dining chair #4: Much more prototyping

09-02-2014 10:16 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 10 comments »

Summer is over and work, my business and life in gerneral have taken almost all my time. And my chair project have slowed down considerable. But in shorter periods i have had time in the workshop and done as much as possible. This is a compilation of 6 weeks: Last time we left about here: This looked cool but i was not totally satisfied. Things i wanted to improve was:- The back rest. It is too low and somehow just not´right´ - The general feel of the chair. Is it a little too static?-...

Just for Fun... #85: Plotting and Scheming...

09-02-2014 10:07 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

So a new project has begun, a Commissioned piece this time…Until I receive permission, I’d rather not discuss all the details, but you clever bunch will pretty easily discern what is being made here…Some Wood was secured, Bubinga that had been milled last Winter… When the two matched pieces were butted together, they seriously didn’t jibe, so trued ends were cut by marking and cutting them using a Square and Rule… A good deal of Plotting and Scheming th...

King Size Shutter Headboard #2: Attaching the top, painting, distressing, and the outcome

Education #2: Sidetable part 2

09-02-2014 12:59 PM by CreekOne | 2 comments »

After a day of laying parquet i realise that the angle is off, just slight but enough to make the herringbone pattern a bit off. So now im building a shooting board to fix this problem… You have to love how you always enda upp building all crazy jigs with extreme presition and it all fails with a wobbling sawblade.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1394: A Perfect World - Panel 13

09-02-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I took the day to do some catching up on things around the house. After the previous few days of working, I needed to do some things like tidying up things and some cooking. My neighbors had given me some zucchini and Keith's mom some fresh blueberries, so I made some bread with them. I think they came out nice, but they were almost too moist. Although are certainly edible. It seems that summer is going to go out with a bang this year. While it was overcast and windy, it was quite dr...
