Tongue Drum #1: Tongue Drum Help

12-07-2016 01:07 AM by Raymus | 0 comments »

I am in the process of making my first tongue drum. Got the Poplar box and Red Oak tone board made, needs lot of work still, and a bottom yet. But the 3/4” red oak tone board doesn’t make much sound and three of the 12 keys sound dead. Don’t understand what’s happening? It doesn’t rattle or buzz, just thump, no tone, well, not a pleasant one anyway. Sure could use some insight or help figuring out what’s happened? It’s funny, the two keys along one...

Mixer stand build #2: Legs and "joinery"

12-06-2016 02:55 PM by Lalen | 3 comments »

Tapering of the legs went pretty well. The tapering jig in the last post failed a little because all I had done is shoot brad nails in the cross braces. ( Duh!) had to reset the angle and re-cut a few sides but not too bad. (lesson #1: secure the jig!) Since this was a 4 side taper, I cut 2 sides, then used the off-cut as a wedge to fill the gap when I cut the other 2 sides. I cut the notch (dado?) for the shelf in my table saw sled before I did the taper so it would be perpendicular ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1807: Life's Little Curve Balls . . .

12-05-2016 03:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Every once in a while, life throws us a little curve ball. These little surprises often come when we least expect them (thus – the term "surprise") and knock us for a loop. They never seem to occur during the lulls in our life, but when we seem to be the busiest. Sometimes that is just the way it goes . . .Last week, I had to take my dear kitty Pancakes to the vet. He was having some issues and in general not feeling his best. I could tell because I just "knew" that ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1806: Rescuing the Rabbit

11-30-2016 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As we arrive on this final day of November, we realize that Christmas and the holidays are right around the corner. Once again, I am in awe of how quickly time passes. It seems like just last week I was working on my glass pumpkin and teaching video for the November ToleTown project, and here I am with another project (and video) due. It all seemed to happen in a blink of an eye. But happen, it did, and as time marches brutally forward, we have no choice but to fall into line and try to ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #87: Refurbing an old Delta 40-530 Scroll Saw

11-29-2016 07:03 PM by technoslick | 7 comments »

The other day I finally got around to refurbing an old Delta 40-530 single-speed scroll saw I bought a few years back. It has been sitting in my dungeon workshop all that time, gathering sawdust, dungeon dust, and more than a fair share of new rust over the old. Here’s what it looked like before disassembly: There is surface rust over all of the table top and blade guide hardware. The blower hose has hardened to the point where it’s no longer flexible enough to allow the up...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1803: "Just Another Day" here in Canada . . .

11-24-2016 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

There are two times during the year that seem to affect me the most regarding living here in Canada.  For those of you who may not know, I was born and raised in the United States. More specifically, in the Chicago area. I lived the first 42 years of my life there and I have many ties and fond memories.  About 12 years ago, I decided it was time for a change and the time was just right for me to move here to Nova Scotia. I am not going to go into details here, as it is a long story,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1801: New Patterns and UPDATE Time!

11-18-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week already. I have been trying my best to stay caught up with things, and for the most part, I think I am doing alright. I have long ago abandoned the idea having to do "x" number of designs per week/month/year. If I measured my productivity by those numbers alone, surely it would be depressing and I wouldn't be fair to myself. There is so much more that is involved in my day-to-day activity that takes a good deal of time.&nbs...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1795: Product Test - Krylon Gallery Series Fine Art Fixativ

10-28-2016 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be pretty much to the point. I have already been out and back and have a multitude of tasks that I need to work on today. It is all a great deal of fun though, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Most of you have seen my completed pastel drawing of my dear cat Pancakes: I have had such a wonderful response to it that I can't express my appreciation for your wonderful support. It really helps me feel as if I am heading in the right direction with my art ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...
