I used my shop made tapering jig to cut the top and b...

Gaming Table Marquetry #2: Addendum to series #1

11-03-2016 07:44 PM by smokey56 | 4 comments »

Apparently some of the initial photos of the gaming table did not get published. I have made some adjustments and now, hopefully, these will work. I’ll explain each with less detail. The first photo below is of the table opened and the second photo is of the top closed. Again, this gaming table is exhibited in a German museum Schloss Anholt. I wanted to re-create it; so I am using the same materials, pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell. Of course the original is not faux tortoi...

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1797: My Winter Pumpkin

11-02-2016 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As a designer, we try to think of original things to create. When I mentioned that I wanted to make a "blue pumpkin with Christmas roses" on it, he cringed. He just didn't see my vision. That is the risk we need to take every time we try something new. Over the years, I have learned to have a pretty tough skin. I used to be greatly influenced by those around me when I had an idea as to what I was going to design. I would try my best to explain things so that people would be...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1796: Some New Projects

11-01-2016 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am posting a little later than normal today. I am starting to wonder what 'normal' really is. I haven't been doing anything in particular this morning that is interesting or fun, (like sleeping! ;) ) but I have been doing the usual organizing and checking and responding to emails and general straightening of the house here. Things we all do in the morning. Lately I feel as if my world is spinning a bit too quickly. More so than it usually does for me. I am not quite sure th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1795: Product Test - Krylon Gallery Series Fine Art Fixativ

10-28-2016 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be pretty much to the point. I have already been out and back and have a multitude of tasks that I need to work on today. It is all a great deal of fun though, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Most of you have seen my completed pastel drawing of my dear cat Pancakes: I have had such a wonderful response to it that I can't express my appreciation for your wonderful support. It really helps me feel as if I am heading in the right direction with my art ...

Pine Auger bit box #7: Lid work

10-28-2016 12:06 AM by bandit571 | 11 comments »

The blank came out of the clamps today. Marked it for the size of the box, trying to get as much of an old knot cut off as I could. One part of the blank was a bit fatter than the other.. Sanding that down would have taken too much time and sandpaper.. we have ways.. After drilling a pair of new dog holes, on a center line from the vise…I used a Stanley #5c with a cambered iron. Going across the grain, didn’t take all that long to get close to flat. Then turn the bla...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1794: Multi-Tasking

10-27-2016 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been quite busy, as usual here for me these days. I was truly grateful and overwhelmed by everyone's response to my drawing of Pancakes. It truly makes me feel that I am on the right track with things and I am doing something right. Again – I have to give a huge 'thank you' to teachers who present online classes for us to learn and expand our artistic horizons. It his world of negativity and sadness, it does wonders to focus on something as simple as creating as an &#...
