"Remember?" #3: getting close?

06-16-2011 04:31 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I slowly seem to be getting closer to something that looks feminine, and hopefully pretty. I did remove the bulge from the forehead that some noticed and I also narrowed the forehead and cheek area. The eyes seemed a little flat, so I made them more curved by gouging deeper into the socket on each side of the eye. I shaped the nose a bit more and added nostrils, which helps define the ball of the nose. She is starting to have a nice look since I have got things a little more...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #372: Two New Designs

06-16-2011 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Finally it is a day when I woke up to a clear sky and sunshine. It has been quite overcast and rainy for the past several days. I think the last time it was sunny out was Saturday when I washed the car. I have been waiting for a bright day so I can take some pictures of the latest projects with some natural light. Usually I use artificial light, but I like to experiment with both, as some things just look better with natural light. One day I will have to get some photography lights, but n...

Wooden Mallet

06-16-2011 04:27 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

My first turning project I tried out my Laguna lathe and the thing is just a beauty. Well i think it would be great thou when i actually get some skill with the thing. I have bought a couple of turning blanks from and received them the other day. Their was some spindle and Bowl blanks. I was very impressed with there stuff, they go thru the effort to do most of the finishing for you so you can just drop them into the lathe. SO with a loth of hesitation I decide...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #371: New Designs and Challenges

06-15-2011 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Ahh, the smell of sawdust and the quiet sound of the Excalibur humming . . . It’s going to be one of those days! I love my work. (Yes – I know! I was a little whiny in getting that last project out the door! It passed though.) One of the best things about what I do is the great deal of variety that comes with the territory. One of my greatest horrors would be to do a job that is the same every day, where you need to preform the same tasks over and over again and have ...

Calling al Arizona LumberJocks!!!!

06-15-2011 07:41 AM by scrappy | 13 comments »

Hello all! Looking to try again at an Arizona Picnic/get together. Did not have much turn out for the last one. We were at the Kiwanis park in Tempe and we were a little hard to find. I am checking into Woodcraft to see if they will let us use their class room. It will be air conditioned so we would be out of this wonderful 110 degree Arizona heat. ( but it;s a DRY heat… is the OVEN!!) Looking to have this get together on June 25th. Let me know if this works. Sorry only 2 weeks ...

"Remember?" #2: correcting mistakes

06-14-2011 07:34 PM by mpounders | 4 comments »

Three things that I definitely try to remember: 1. Learn to recognize, to see your mistakes.2. Learn how to correct your mistakes.3. Learn to not be afraid to make corrections! Sometimes that correction may seem quite drastic, if you have not recognized it early in the carving progress. I have a tendency to get too detailed too early in the carving process, rather than carving the overall piece to make sure everything is where it is supposed to be. Doing that, and getting an area su...

Trays from Pallet Wood, with handles

06-14-2011 07:18 PM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

I have a lot of pallet wood and enjoy using it to make new things. I also bought a bag of used handles not long ago, so I figured I would incorporate them into the new projects which are trays. Four of the handles were soaked in a mixture of vinegar and water with a ball of steel wool thrown in the tub which makes the handles look old and rusty. They are attached with screws from the inside after the tray is made. The pallet wood is planed and trimmed to size. Holes remain from the or...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #8: Making the Stepped Pattern

06-14-2011 04:30 AM by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

Once the mortises were complete, it was time to finally move on to the stepped pattern. I first roughed out the pattern at the band saw so as to remove the majority of the waste. After the problems I ran into while building a pair of cradles I now know I need to get to within 1/16” of the line I’ll eventually template route to. I’m currently borrowing my neighbors bench-top bandsaw which has a slightly dull blade and doesn’t always cut perfectly straight so I...

The doors are completed, the inners are mounted. I am running out of time for tonight, so I am hanging it up as it were. I need to mount the doors, and cleats, mount the catches, sand and finish this thing… I am so close I can taste it…
