My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #47: A New (Self) Challenge

07-20-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I really appreciated the positive feedback on the Gothic Bat Candle Tray yesterday. It was a wonderful boost and some great suggestions were made. I am extremely intrigued by the Inlace Metal Dust that was suggested and I think that I have got to get my hands on some. Getting it here in Canada may be a challenge though as a friend of mine who does beautiful turning told me about it a while back and I couldn’t find any. I guess I have to hit Google and see what I can see. That would ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #43: Sometimes the Lazy Way is More Work Then Anticipated (But We Learn Something)

07-16-2010 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

OK. This is getting scary. Do we only get so many good days in a given time period? Or are we really the masters of our own destiny? I am probably over-reacting, but I just really like when things work out like you want them to. I am kind of hoping that it is because thought and planning went into something that it turns out well. That gives us some sense of control. I would hate to think that it is only by chance. So where were we? Ah, yes. The autumn leaf candle tray. As I was sa...

Old door mirrors

07-08-2010 08:07 PM by Briansey | 3 comments »

I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that. Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...

Raised panels chest #1: Raised Panels Jewelry chest with inlays

07-02-2010 09:02 PM by lanwater | 7 comments »

This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...

Bandsaw Box #1: What the wife wants, the wife gets.

07-02-2010 10:41 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...

Adventures in Spraying #1: Surface Preparation

06-28-2010 06:23 PM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Ah… finally some woodworking at last. I don’t really have any time or the mind space lately to focus on construction and creation much, and it felt like I was just collecting tools as of late. All with the preparation of ‘one day’ to be able to get to things. As it happens, I am able to dedicate a little time for some refinishing jobs as I don’t really need to think much for those, and it’s easier for me to get in the zone and just go at it. First ...

Woodturning video...the 9" x 12" Segmented Vase

06-22-2010 08:57 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

Woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut. When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate ...
