My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #571: Better Late Than Never

01-02-2012 05:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

The site was down earlier today and I was unable to post my blog. I did write it before I headed out to the gym and this is the first time that I was able to post. (To those of you who wrote – thanks for missing me! :D) I had a great start to the new year yesterday. I spent much of the day at the scroll saw, cutting out my new designs. What I have drawn up is a set of Valentine Conversation Heart ornaments that can be used in many different ways. I love cutting letters, and it wa...

Medieval dugout chest . #2: This thing is going to destroy my truck .

01-02-2012 06:20 AM by randomray | 5 comments »

I imagine a dugout chest has many names , but I have also heard them called log chests in english . I like dugout because they are just like dugout canoes . They are made from a whole section of a log so that name works well too . The basic idea is you get a section of tree about 6ft “2meters ” to 12ft “4 meters ” long and hollow out the inside after spilting off one side . More detail latter . As for tools many of our traditional hand tool designs go back hundreds in ...

Clear Vue dust collector install #3: FINISHED - AT LAST!!!

01-02-2012 06:11 AM by BillyJ | 12 comments »

Please, no applause. Really. Ok, just a little. On December 31, 2011, at 8:45 PM, I fired up my Clear Vue dust collector. Granted, it worked. But the rather loud noise caused me to shut it down within seconds. After several successive attempts, it became very apparent the fan was flexing enough to hit the suspension nuts. But hey, it actually worked. So what did I do today – I fixed the problem. But wait, here are a few pictures of what brought me to this point. When I la...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #570: Welcoming 2012

01-01-2012 03:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the day yesterday in a flurry of activity. Perhaps it was because I was feeling more like myself but I also think that it was because I wanted to tie up some loose ends and start the new year off properly. I found myself full of energy as I tidied up things and organized and put everything in its place. It felt really good to do so after the chaos of the holiday season. Keith was busy preparing several pens for turning. While he hadn’t heard how the three shops that carri...

Workshop setup #1: Small beginnings

01-01-2012 11:42 AM by FlashG | 1 comment »

These are the first couple of photos from my attempts to renovate my new garage. The previous owner didn’t have it set up well so I’m filling in gaps, sanding, priming, painting, moving, removing, organising and eventually creating! But there’s a long way to go before then. My tools should arrive this week so I’ll try and get the walls primed and painted, then I’ll be able to set up the tools properly.

Medieval dugout chest . #1: Darn this is heavy .

01-01-2012 02:32 AM by randomray | 5 comments »

First off I want to thank all the wonderful supportative people checking out my work . You folks are the ones that made me decide to share my thoughts and projects . That and I realized not many people do my style of crazy projects . There are some and some of them are way better then me . But if I can do it , I’m betting you can too and probably better . Second , I’m dyslexic so there will be mispellings and words out of order and stuff like that . Unless you are youself you don...

Building the shop #7: THe latest addition to the shop...

01-01-2012 12:35 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 1 comment »

Today, I found a nice bandsaw for a good price and picked it up this morning. It’s not a Rikon or PowerMatic, but it will more than suffice for my needs at this time. Grizzly G0555 w/6” extension – this gives me about 10-12” of resaw capacity, so I can resaw the wood I have been collecting from broken furniture. Since I didn’t have to pay for shipping and sales tax and the accessories, it was quite a good deal for me. Here’s a picture of it in the ...

Just for Fun... #58: I Had to Find Out...

12-31-2011 11:41 PM by littlecope | 15 comments »

The week before Christmas, one of the waitresses at work told me of a customer who had come in and asked about the Signs and the Comments Box in the Restaurant… Who made them? Can the person make more or different ones?It seems the lady wanted a sign made for Christmas…Beverly the waitress told her who I am, and when I work, and that she could speak to me on Friday… But the Lady never called… I told my Girl Debbie about it, and how I would have told the Lady that it wa...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #7: Who said Stumpy isn't very sharp?

12-31-2011 01:32 AM by StumpyNubs | 25 comments »

What do you get when you combine unlimited resources with the greatest woodworking mind ever? This week Stumpy demonstrates the opposite of that… Stumpy turns his Work Sharp 3000 into a super-duper sharpening machine that works without sandpaper and accepts Tormek jigs. Then turns his sarcasm and twisted humor loose on the viewer emails. (Who knew handplanes and popcorn had so much in common…) This is part one of a 2 part sharpening series. Next week we make some fully adjus...
