12-24-2011 08:56 AM by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #561: I Heard the Bells

12-23-2011 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well it is my own fault that I am running late today. I just got out of bed and it is already 7am. That is just about unheard of from me. I usually get up somewhere around 5am. It is my ‘quiet time’ and I spend it not only picking around the web and catching up on emails, but also writing here. I have a lot I need to accomplish today and the last thing I needed was to oversleep. But I must have needed it so I will go with the flow here and get what I can done when I can. To...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #20: On the way to the Scrollsaw

12-22-2011 02:34 AM by jerrells | 0 comments »

An interesting thing happen on the way to the scrollsaw, so to speak. Several customers have ask for special designs the Christmas. Well without LJ’s and all the many friends and excellant examples here I would have had a much harder time. A special thanks to Shelia Landry and to Steve Good for taking time to respond to requests. Also, to many LJ’s who have responded, invarious ways, to requests for information. It seems that the more you get into this scrollsaw stuff, the more...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Building the shop #4: As the garage turns (into a woodshop!)

12-20-2011 07:46 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 7 comments »

Over the weekend I made a lot of progress on the shop clearing out two more steel shelving units, leaving only one to clear out and move out. As part of the continued purging, I decided to dismantle my second Shopsmith, give away the bench (I love FREE signs on stuff – it’s how I get rid of SO much stuff!!!) from the Shopsmith. I am keeping my first Shopsmith, for now, but as I acquire more tools I begin to think that the 6 foot long by 30” wide machine is a huge space drain...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #557: Making Progress

12-19-2011 02:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I spent the day yesterday for the most part working on the fence pieces for Ellen. I am happy with the progress, but as usual it is taking me far more time than I anticipated. I have everything mapped out in my head as to how I am going to paint these, and that helps the process, but it still takes a lot of time to actually accomplish. I worked on the candy cane piece for most of the time. While it looks simple, painting all the stripes is really the hitch. It is a lot of sections and ...

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Unorthodox Bandsaw Box #1: Box making steps

12-11-2011 09:42 PM by Jim Jakosh | 28 comments »

My wife asked me when I was going to make her a box to keep our business cards in when we travel. I had made a few boxes but never one upon request- especially from her. So I wanted this to be special. I went about making a bandsaw box in an unconventional way and I was having a problem with the hinge design. One night I had a dream of how to do it and wrote it down right away in the morning. Here are the steps I used to make the box using mainly the bandsaw and the scroll saw for one tough p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #548: Thanks for the Great Responses Yesterday!

12-10-2011 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off today’s post with thanking all of those who helped out and posted your thoughts and participated in yesterday’s discussion. The responses were quite overwhelming not only here on Lumberjocks, but also on the Sheila Landry Designs page and my Facebook. It just shows what a hot topic picking the right tool is and judging from all the responses and also all the personal emails I received, I think that together we all helped a great deal of people. Discussions...
