Now I've gone and done it.

07-20-2010 05:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 24 comments »

Hello all I have a box design I want to do and it involves inlaying small irregular shaped pieces. How am I going to do it? I thought long and hard. Having already gone to acquisition level 2 once before. I’ve gone and got myself a scroll saw. Its only a cheapie at £55 ($84). 16”, 90 watt motor, tiltable table. I’ve had my first play. I’m using a piece of 6mm MDF as a zero clearance device. I’m quite impressed. The test for the inset pieces was easy. So I d...

Shop Notes #11: Have you ever had a good idea that wasn't a good idea?

04-03-2014 01:14 AM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

Out in the shop today, and I was not screwing anything up! Yeah ! I’m working on an old Delta 18 inch C Arm type one Scroll Saw. I have contacted two LJ scrollers here for advice , ”ArtistryinWox” and ”Verne Bueler” have been ever so helpful. I have previously blogged about this trash or treasure saw and my process as well as getting help. Thanks for the support. ArtistryinWox told me that he had put wheels on the Delta tri legged base, but had to remov...

End Grain Floor #14: Leviathan Part 3

05-25-2012 03:36 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

Hmm, where was I…O yes. The red material had arrived and so I laid it all out on the table to decide which one would go into the eye. There was Redwood burl, Amboyna Burl, Red Mallee Burl, Roble Burl, Red Swirl Resin, and Red Sea Coral. I chose the Red Sea Coral not just because of its color but because it came from the sea and I am sentimental, I thought it would be cool to have it in the “SEA Monster” :) It was a bit disappointing because when I sanded it flu...

Husband died and I'm left with lots of tools

05-12-2009 08:27 PM by Wendy | 23 comments »

Does anyone know how I should go about selling my husband’s tools? I know that they are too heavy to ship and I don’t know of too many woodworkers in this area of northeast Arkansas. How do I price the tools? Can someone give me advice on how to get this accomplished as I am contemplating moving out of state. Thanks for your help.

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #5: Cutting Outside Curves

07-30-2011 12:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 23 comments »

Now that we have had a chance to practice casting on and off, we are going to practice a bit more on cutting outside curves. Cutting curves is probably one of the easiest things to do on a scroll saw. Most designs consist mainly of curved lines, with occasional straight runs from time to time. Once you get used to cutting curves and turning corners accurately, you are well on your way to being a great scroller. One thing that is important to remember is that the blade is stationa...

New Wood Shop

06-15-2012 12:08 PM by GuyK | 22 comments »

As always the number one tool for any woodworker is the space he or she use’s for his/her wood shop. I have been blessed with a wonderful space to use and wanted to share it with all my LJ friends. This shop was actual started in December of 2011 ( the month I retired from my other career ) and I am now just getting it where it needs to be. The photos taken are after a open house I held at the farm to show off the shop and discuss woodworking with some local craftsmen. N...

The Burl Hunter (I need 5 people to help me)

05-04-2010 03:56 PM by OregonBurls | 21 comments »

Hey everyone,I am in need of some help! I am writing a book called “The Burl Hunter”. I am looking for interested people who are willing to read as I write to help me out. I am not a great writer but I love to teach. What I would like to do is get about 5 people to read and critique the book. Even edit my grammar. I would like 2 people who know about burls just to keep me in check and 3 to just read to learn and see how it flows. I need your input. It is a book that will g...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1008: Butterflies and Posies

04-12-2013 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 21 comments »

Today I have more pictures than I will post. Little by little everything is coming together and I keep going from one project to the next to the next as things are drying. But things are beginning to come together now and I am seeing the finish line on most of the new things that I am creating. I don’t want to overwhelm everyone, so I will only post pictures of two projects today. The first project that I will show today will be the “Butterflies are Free” candle tray. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #763: Scrollgirl/Videogirl

07-15-2012 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 20 comments »

Just when I thought I had enough to do . . . I was cutting out my recent project the other day and I was thinking (THAT is always dangerous!) I have been getting a lot of questions lately and I have talked to many newcomers to scroll sawing and for some odd reason I had the urge to teach again, so I thought I would do some more videos. There are so many times when I wish that I could just be with someone to show them how to do things. It would be far easier than trying to explain thing...

Why I like Vintage Tools #8: The Finished Scroll Saw

11-16-2008 11:43 PM by brianinpa | 20 comments »

Two weeks worth of work standing behind the wire brush, shaking and spraying paint, and it is now useable. It’s not completely finished yet, but it is close enough to it. The only things left to do are repainting the logo plate, finding or making a cap for the pump tube, and remake the model number plate. I also need to get the right size belt to fit properly (I think I am going with the link belt), but I put one on to make sure it works and it cuts fine. The motor i...
