Shop Notes #17: Experimenting with Black Acacia

04-13-2018 04:05 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Some time last year, a local lumberyard cleared out the last of their black acacia for dirt cheap. The lumber wasn’t great—lots of splits and narrow pieces, but for the price, it was worth a gamble. After a few months in the shop, I finally broke out a couple of boards to make some beer flight paddles and a wine rack or two. For the paddles, I wanted to create a flat-bottom surface for the tasting glasses. Boring a partial hole with a forstner bit would leave a score around...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #6: Ring Tray and Smaller boxes

01-20-2018 02:26 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the pro...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1855: Settling In

09-25-2017 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It has been a wild and crazy month here for us at Sheila Landry Designs.  Both Keith and I have been busy changing, rearranging and updating things at all of our venues. It has been thrilling and exciting for us both, and we are truly enjoying seeing everything come together.  It is hard to believe that we are approaching the final quarter of the year already. As usual, the time has just passed by too quickly for my taste. I suppose that has always been one of the biggest complaints...

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 02:48 PM by Thumper2004 | 0 comments »

So I started a while back in designing a new charging station/Tool Storage for my various cordless tools. I was able to continue work on this as I had already cut and assembled the hanger portions. There is still quite a bit to go so it may take a while with life happening. Thanks for checking it out. I can post plans for this if requested.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1854: New Patterns and Adventures

09-08-2017 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As I sit here and begin writing this morning, I realize just how much things have changed since I began blogging several years ago. What began as early morning conversations between you all and myself regarding what the plans were for my day and what the previous day had brought to me has now evolved into something a bit different. In those early days of writing, I was striving to be successful and prove that success not only to others but mainly to myself. I had started writing at a time whe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1853: New Project for Toletown for September

08-30-2017 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

In keeping with my promise to myself and you all to try to do better with blogging regularly, I decided to post some pictures of a project that I am working on for the Toletown painting community for September. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Toletown (www.toletown.com) it is an online painting group that is a fun place to learn about and share our love of painting. I have been aware of them for well over ten years and have been a member for as long as I can remember. a few...
