Prototype Wine and Glasses Rack - Final Prototype Configuration - (less finish)

01-11-2015 01:03 AM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

(I posted the early build of this under Projects, several days ago.) Yesterday I finished the construction. To keep the top glasses from falling off the shelf on their own I added three 3” lengths of dowel cut to a 5 degree back slant. The space between the closest distance between the dowels and the shelf is adequate to make it impossible for the glasses to fall off the shelf without making it difficult to get the glasses off. In the production runs holes will be drilled at 5 de...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1473: Winter Blues

01-09-2015 01:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It seems that this year more than ever I have noticed that people seem to have the 'winter blues.' With the holiday season over and cold weather setting in all over the USA and Canada, it seems that most people are dreading the upcoming months of cold and ice. Here in Nova Scotia, we had a relatively mild December. Usually we are already deep in the grips of cold and ice by the year's end, but this year it was much warmer and there was very little snowfall to speak of. There ...

Curved front hall table #2: Curved front hall table #2

01-08-2015 09:33 PM by exelectrician | 6 comments »

To make the top six ribbon sapele offcuts from my wood supply shop were edge glued, planed, and joined. Then I used the template with a 3” diameter ring centered and carpet taped to my router base to trim the jigsawed oval shape to the final dimension. First I routed a classic ogee on the top edge and put a 3/8” round over on the back, my wife preferred the ogee to be on the down side, so the rounded side became the top!I put Daleys ‘Benite’ to seal all the surfaces an...

Machine restoration #3: More cleaning... And a "dry assembly"

01-08-2015 02:30 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So, after a day of cleaning and a night of sleep I just have to say, Shame on you who don’t clean your tools regularly! I tend to clean my hand tools every quite often, Nomi, Nokogiri and Ganna every time I have used them. Sharpening I do all the time as I do work a lot of Western Red Cedar. Try cutting perfect dovetails with a less than 10000 grit sharpened Nomi. So this is about my new old machine and how the renovation goes on… So why am I ranting about this?Well remember...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1472: Site Updated - New Catalog and Patterns

01-08-2015 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am just going to write a short post today to let you all know that we completed another site update. I also will be sending out a newsletter later on today to let our subscribers know the same. Sometimes I sound as if I am repeating myself here, but I do realize that many of you just check in from time to time and don't read my posts every day. In the past I have had people come to me that have missed when I show new products and I understand that not everyone gets to see each post...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1471: Burning the Midnight Oil

01-07-2015 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Those of you who read often know that I am a "morning person".  I love getting up in the morning – the earlier the better. Anything after about 5am and I am good to go.Because of that, I don't tend to be a 'night owl'. Usually after dinner I slow down a bit and do some things that don't require a lot of thought or concentration. It is what I consider my 'down time.'But lately, since I have jumped back into full swing after coasting a bit in Decembe...

Current Project #20: Saved!

01-06-2015 06:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

It was a feature, not a flaw! I added support ends on the cubby insert and that added a total of 1 inch to the length. The project is saved! Except for the ends the project is made from fiber board which is only finished on one side. I plan on painting it to match the shelf it will live in.
