My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #502: I Never Want to Know How to Milk a Cow

10-25-2011 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

No one said that just because we are self employed that we have to like every aspect of our jobs. As with any occupation, there is good and bad. I suppose the trick is to be able to do much more of the good stuff and keep the bad stuff to a minimum. I think for the most part, I am able to accomplish that. But sometimes you just can’t avoid doing stuff you don’t really like. Some of you may remember way back in January when I teamed up with another designer who makes awesom...

Workbench #14: Starting The Base

10-25-2011 12:08 AM by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. I am now working on the base for my workbench. I have changed some of the design details since my first concept, but not by much. The main difference is that the two legs on the Roubo side of the bench have tenons that will go into the bench top. The base was going to attach to the top the way most trestle bases do with bullet dowels, but then I realized that when I use the leg vise, all the pressure will be placed on the dowels! So I redesigned the front legs so that they have a tenon...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #501: New Projects In Progress

10-24-2011 12:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

And so we begin another week . . How can the days seem to go by so quickly? I know that I whine about it all the time, but it seems that the days are so full that before I know it, the sun is setting and it comes to an end before I get half of what I intended to do done. I often wonder if it is part of getting older or is it just because my life is so full now. I am going to lean to the side of it just because I am probably the busiest that I have been since the kids were small. Thos...

Crochet Box #3: Finished

10-24-2011 04:04 AM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I finished up the crochet box for my wife today and she seem’s to like it. The finish was several coats of oil/varnish and then wax on top. The inside I left untreated to preserve the wood smell when the box is open instead of the smell of linseed oil. I posted the project here

Crochet Box #2: Raised Panel

10-22-2011 05:15 AM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

Tonight I spent some time working on the raised panel lid for the box I have been working on. All the work was done with a block rabbate plane. I started out cutting a wide rabbate on the ends of the panel about 1/8 inch deep and then the sides. This was followed by cutting a slope that hit my scribe line on the outside of the pannel and the bottom of the existing rabbate at the same time. Again I started with the cross grain cuts and then finished with the with grain sides. I tried scra...

my tool till

10-21-2011 07:58 PM by daydrik | 5 comments »

At the moment I don’t have much time to work on all my unfinished project but hopefully this weekend I can finish two of my tills for my carpenters trunk. I’ve been needing a place to store my tool out of the way when not needed so I put together a carpenters trunk. I don’t have much money so it’s only made from pine but i hope one day to build one out of a harder wood. I’m thinking walnut or oak. Well I dovetailed the sides and grooved in the top and bottom. I s...

Lets See, BLOG= Buy lots of Goodies, Yeah that must be it. Who is up for a trip to the wood store? I guess that all the experienced Bloggers are rolling their collective eyes by now. SO, on with the update. My Sawing partner and I put in a little time this weekend with the sawmill, and the results were nice. I know some might think this is not a real woodworking project, But i think it’s a good start for me and possibly others and I thought i might share a few pictures with all. We r...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #497: Chasing My Tail

10-20-2011 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

OK. So I come here to write this morning’s post and I noticed that there is a contest for a Halloween candy holder. I have been kind of sluggish lately with getting some stuff done and kind of getting distracted (you all know how that can be!) and I am thinking the last thing I need is something else to get me off track. Or is it? Sometimes I do my best when I have twenty things to do in front of me. While I am not quite at twenty yet, it seems that things are kind of pilin...
