My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1732: Through Artist's Eyes

05-11-2016 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Is there such a thing as loving too many things about life?As I wake up each morning and try to plan out my day, I think my biggest problem that I am encounter on most days is which direction to head.One tends to view others that are self-employed as someone who gets to sit on the beach most of the time, drinking a tropical drink with a wide-brimmed straw hat and wondering where they will spend their next holiday. When I come across people that have that mentality (yes – they do exist) ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1731: The Spice of Life

05-09-2016 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It has been another busy end of the week, as well as weekend. As we are moving into the second week of May, the weather is finally getting warmer and beginning to resemble spring and summer. Hopefully in the next week, I will be picking up my car from the place that is working on it and I will once again have my driving freedom. It has been a long story regarding  my vehicle this past year, and I don't want to bore anyone here with those details. There is enough good to focus on and ...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

More working with Pine #2: Rounding a leg, without a lathe

05-09-2016 12:11 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Yep. Seems the back legs need to be 48” long, from the rocker to the finial. “Plan” is to make these round. Problem being my lathe. In “Theory” it can go out to 37” between centers….in practice? Not so much. soooTo round over something this big and long, takes some special tools…..one of which I do not have.. Gave both of these a try-out, like the curved one better for slicing through the knots. The straight one? meh. I would g...

More working with Pine #1: Little rust hunt, and some saw work

05-08-2016 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, went out on a rust hunt of sorts…..usual luck this week. Found ONE place that had a few hand tools.. Stickers said $0.75 each…offered the gal a dollar bill for the lot…..”sold!” Ok, there was a bit of saw work to do, other the last few days…. Got the saw bench cleared off, as I wanted to turn this pile of boards Into something a bit easier to move around. Had four of those 4×4s to move around, and a 1×8x 10’ to cut do...

Another simple little box? #3: Lid work

05-04-2016 09:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, sanded down some of the fingers that were sticking up.. After which, I ran a small combo square and a pencil around Trying to land somewhere besides right on a pin. Plane was to saw the lid part from the box’s bottom. Handsaw would be a bit too rough on things, and get into a bind. Bandsaw? A bit hard to do, and see where I was cutting. Yard sale item might just work… I cut one end first, to get the hang of using this heavy saw. Then cut the long side...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1730: #1730 A Box Filled With "Possibilities"

05-04-2016 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

What is better than a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box?Why a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box filled with supplies, of course! Yesterday, I showed you the lovely box that I snagged on the Derwent site last weekend. For the price (about $140 CDN or $115 USD SHIPPED from England) I was thrilled with the quality and workmanship that Derwent used to build it. But let's face it – the reason that I ordered it in the first place was to use it for storing my odds an...

Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1729: Boxing Day

05-03-2016 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As an artist, I love getting new supplies. Besides loving to work in so many different types of media, being active on the internet and participating in classes and online forums exposes me to many, many different new and exciting products. It really keeps my creative juices flowing and I love trying new techniques and products. It is a wonderful part of what I do. Many of you know that I live in a very small place. Keith and I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for over seven years n...
