Hey All, So I am very new to woodworking. I decided recently to try my hand at some fine wood working after marrying into a world famous boat building family who as master craftsmen when it comes to working with wood. I wanted to start this blog to journal my journey from basically a nobody in the grand scheme of woodworking, into hopefully a skilled woodworker who creates things that people can be in awe of one day. I have no idea how long that will take (most likely a lifetime!!!) but...
Hello woodworkers I have a question. I have turned a lot of my attention to creating furniture for 18 inch dolls, like American Girl. I have the book by Dennis Simmons, “Making Furniture and Dollhouses … ” and it seems to be the only printed resource for patterns. I have every copy of ScrollSaw Woodworking mag that contains a pattern for this. I have searched the internet and “YES” I have seen all of the suggestions about using ratios to change patterns to fit...
Scroll saw baskets are a bit easier to make than scroll saw bowls.Today I am making a 9 sided pattern out of birch.These make great gifts and are very popular. You can watch my video here. Enjoy.
Hello all! This is my first post to LumberJocks, and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey into the world of woodworking with you all, as well as learning everything I can from the old (sorry, EXPERIENCED!) hands out there. I’m an Information Technology consultant by profession, but I’ve also been a rough carpenter/handyman for a few years now on the side. I’ve done a few finer things in that time—I’m particularly proud of a set of built-ins ...
Today's post will be a bit short, I am afraid. Not because I have been idle, but much the opposite. I find that when I design lately, I work on a certain theme and wind up doing several different projects in that style. I am not sure if that is good or bad. On one hand it makes me feel kind of 'wishy-washy' because I can't seem to settle on one version. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to design a project for scrollers, and then be able to offer a painter's ve...
After the last few days of snow and wind, it finally seems to have calmed down here. As I look outside this morning, everything is calm and the sun is shining brightly. What a beautiful winter day it is! I am happy to say that our winter storm wasn't that bad for us. While I know it was a hard on many (and I feel badly for that) we were fortunate that we were safe and warm and power was uninterrupted throughout the duration. Adele was able to get to the wharf finally and check on the...
Hello again. So I finished painting the wolf head. Now I need to apply four coats of clear pre cat lacquer on the front and one coat on the back. Here are some pictures of the paint job.
So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...
Today's post will be a quick one. I just wanted you to all know that the patterns for the new projects are completed and listed on the site. We had quite a few new items this time and I am just going to post them quickly here for you all.Keith had several new word art patterns and a new cross pattern. The word art patterns are as follows: SLDK539 - Proud Woodworker, Scroller, Artist and Teacher Plaque Patterns. (ALL included in one set!) SLDK545 - Courage, Strength and Faith Pattern...
I spent the day yesterday finishing up my three new patterns as well as taking the photos for the pattern. It filled up most of my day (along with my usual errands and post office trip) and by the time I was finished, it was nearly bed time. I am going to be working on the pattern packets today, and hopefully by later on in the day we will send a newsletter out letting everyone know that the site is fully updated. As usual, it took a bit longer than I expected, but the results I feel wer...
