My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1812: Elipse Low-Profile Dust Mask Review

01-12-2017 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

(I want to note that I am was in no way compensated for this review. I researched and purchased this mask on my own.) In today's blog post, I am going to talk about something that I think is rather important. It is something that I have been lax on myself, but I made a vow with my woodworking friend (Leldon) that we are going to change things and try to do a bit better about it. What I am referring to is wearing a dust mask when doing our woodworking and cutting wood. Now I a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1811: The Comfort of Routine

01-10-2017 02:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

The older I get, the more I seem to enjoy the concept of 'familiarity'. I will follow up that sentence with stating that I do NOT feel "that old". (Really!)  I think that lately, though, the things that have come up unexpectedly have not exactly been things that I consider as 'pleasant'. I know that has nothing whatsoever to do with age, but for some reason, these days I don't feel quite as resilient as I have in the past. Is this due to circumstan...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1810: Back to Blogging . . .

01-09-2017 03:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I realize it has been a long time since I posted a blog. To be honest with you all, it has been a rough couple of months. After losing my dear kitty and constant companion Pancakes suddenly early in December, the following week my other kitty Richard became gravely ill. The vet seems to think that his illness was triggered by the stress of losing Pancakes. Cats are very sensitive creatures. The combination of Pancakes just 'disappearing' and me being grief-stricken was something that ...

Shop storage projects #4: Dungeon Remodel, stage 1

01-05-2017 02:39 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well really two stages today….the main event was this afternoon. Then I went back down to do a wee bit more, as a stage 2….....didn’t quite work out. Leg was having issues towards the end. Sitting here with an ice pack on the leg, and a Norco pill in me. Anyway…here we go…. I removed the brace till from it’s perch, and placed the electric grinder in it’s place. I needed a couple other toys to move aside….and then try to remove the...

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,...
