My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #743: One Step Forward . . .

06-25-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Two steps back. Well, you all probably have heard the saying. While we were forging ahead yesterday, I was finishing the last of my printing when I came across an error. I was doing the final proof reading for the last of the patterns before I printed out 150 copies and I was checking the item numbers of the DecoArt colors that I used for the project. I was sitting here at the computer and thought it would be easy just to type the number in the search box at the DecoArt website to make ...

Tugboat's Toolbox #1: Inspired by MaFe's Recycled-wood Toolbox

06-25-2012 09:31 AM by Tugboat706 | 3 comments »

I’ve been playing with wood for quite a while, but beyond the simple power tools I’d had for a while (scrollsaw, drill, circular saw), I hadn’t really done much, although I’d wanted to. I looked at the shop which has a bunch of random (and some not-so random) power and hand tools. I have stuff I have no idea how to use, that was either given to me, or I’d gotten inexpensively. I knew how to use a bandsaw, although my blade wandered. I have a shaper that a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #742: Pieces Cut - On to Packaging

06-24-2012 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We finished cutting the pieces for the 500 kits yesterday. Everything went quite smoothly. It took us less than three hours to finish cutting the 80 kits that were remaining. Not too bad, I think. Afterwards, we did a complete and thorough cleaning of everything. We vacuumed from the floor to the ceiling and everything in between. The whole process took about an additional half hour, which wasn’t too bad considering. We are now ready for our final stages of the projects. Near...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #741: Getting There . . .

06-23-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

We had a really good day cutting yesterday. One thing that I learned early on when doing a project was to do the most difficult parts of it first and save the easiest part for the end. That way, you tackle the most difficult parts when you are fresh and excited. It wasn’t as if cutting any of the pieces were difficult, but some of the shapes were certainly easier and quicker than others. Of the four different sets of pieces, the Christmas stockings were definitely the fastest ones ...

My best Craig's List purchase yet

06-22-2012 11:32 AM by nobuckle | 14 comments »

I’ve been patiently searching Craig’s List for a scroll saw. Not just any scroll saw but one that I felt was going to perform to my expectations. The main thing I looked for was a brand that I could trust, for me that means Delta. Another area of importance was construction – how it was made and what kind of material was it made from. So, I looked for a Delta scroll saw that was constructed of quality cast iron. What I found met those requirements and more. Take a look. ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #31: Staining Baltic Birch Plywood

06-21-2012 11:52 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

OK this may be a really dumb question but here goes. Staining Baltic Birch Plywood. When you purchase it does it generally have some type of sealer on the surface. I just got finished cutting a fretwork clock out of baltic birch and staining it and it looks horrable. My only choice it to attempt to sand it and apply a different stain method. I generally get my wood from the local Rockler store but sometime purchase some from Lowes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

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 owners manual does not give instructions about tighten these or doing any maintainence in this area. Any adivice in this area – PLEASE.

Antique Craftsman Scroll Saw Project

06-09-2012 03:55 AM by William | 30 comments »

Some of you probably have figured out by now that I have a love deep in me for old machines. I love old cars, the engines in particular. I love anything old. However, I can’t stand to see something, just because it’s old, to be put on a wall or a shelf to look at. These old tools, especially, were built to last, built to use.This leads into my most recent find. I have aquired a scroll saw. I have practically nothing in it besides gas money and time. So here goes.This is the condit...
