My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1749: Longing for 'Routine'

07-22-2016 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been over three weeks now since we made our 'final move' to our new home. In reality, it is closer to four. I look back and consider 'moving day' as the day we finally brought the cats here to our new home and began sleeping here, after our bed arrived. One would think that we would be all settled by now. Anyone who knows both Keith and I know how much we love to be organized. While he and I have many differences in the way we do things, one thing that we really se...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1748: Settling In

07-20-2016 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I sit here this morning, trying to decide what to write, I realize how much we have accomplished in the past several weeks. I hope that I am not being tiresome talking about our moving adventures, but for Keith, the kitties and myself, it has been a life consuming event for the past several months. Not only from the day nearly three weeks ago when we finally brought the cats (and the coffee pot) to our new place here, but it has been on our minds for many, many weeks before that. We had fi...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #2: Part #2: Decisions, Decisions, and more Decisions

07-20-2016 02:24 AM by EarlS | 1 comment »

Great, now I know what I want to build AND I think it will be compatible with the style of other furnishings in the room. I have a picture, provided by Captain Skully, since I forgot to post one. Many thanks!! Before I go any further, I must give credit to Kevin Rodel for his design. I wish I could afford to buy his works, they are amazing. Thank you for providing the rest of us with such inspirational pieces to imitate. If this turns out well I might try reproducing the Glasgow desk...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1747: Slowly Returning to "Normal"

07-18-2016 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

If this move has taught me anything, it is taught me that things don't happen overnight. Even if things appear to fall into place when looking in from the outside, there is usually a huge amount of work to make that happen. I am beginning to think that the more seamless that change appears to be, the more work it required to get there. "Effortless" takes more effort than we can imagine. It has been over three weeks since we made the big move to our new place. (I actually ha...

Making a Picture Frame From Decorative Door Casing and Framed a Photo in a Double Mat Board

07-17-2016 08:42 PM by BenhamDesign | 5 comments »

Watch my project be built on Youtube Thanks for watching This is a straightforward build. Instead of buying the really expensive Picture Frame Molding, I opted to cut down some decorative door casing from the big box store. It runs about $15 for a 7’ long stick, depending on the profile you pick. (If you are interested in the tools I used in this build and a more in depth write up please visit my blog on Custom Picture Framing I started out cutting a dado along the edge of the ...

07-17-2016 04:54 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

The router cabinet is not complete, but I’m getting close. With the table top installed it is now functional. Here’s where I left off the other dayThe main carcass assembled, so my assembly bench is now free for other projects—specifically 3rd cabinet for entertainment center. Table Top PlacementI have a two inch overhang in the front for clamping if needed. I had originally considered pushing the top back 10” and adding a sliding table. However with a coping s...

Router Table Build #5: Cabinet Build

07-15-2016 04:36 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Its been a long time between shop projects. Harbor Freight Dust Collection System still seating in pieces yet to be assembled as are a few other projects in various states of incompleteness :-( However, the past week I did manage to get some shop time. The new layout I made for the shop several months ago before all the WEPs started is proving out to be very productive. I actually have dedicated space to layout, cut, fabricate, and assemble. Still need a finishing area. However, separat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1746: 50 Shades of Grey and Other Adventures

07-15-2016 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

If anything, we are learning that expanding to a full sized home from a one bedroom apartment is an 'adventure'.  While customizing things to our own needs and preferences is fun, it is a lot of work and takes a great deal of time. Yesterday we decided to take off to New Minas – a town that is about two hours away – as that is where the nearest Home Depot store is located. I mentioned before that I had not finished with my scroll saw room and one of the things th...
