ScrollSaw Information and Resources #30: DeWalt DW788 Question

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

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #29: Scrollsaw Planning

06-07-2012 11:54 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

On my way out to the Scrollsaw several weeks ago I realized that I did not have the wood for the intended project. So it was either run to Rockler or find a different pattern. After pattern searching for about an hour I realized that this is pointless and a waste of time. Now I will admit to reading most all of Shelia’s blog’s on a daily basis. She always seems to have it under control. Also, I will admit that at one time, in my working life, I taught and sold Planning and Orga...

End Grain Floor #14: Leviathan Part 3

05-25-2012 03:36 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

Hmm, where was I…O yes. The red material had arrived and so I laid it all out on the table to decide which one would go into the eye. There was Redwood burl, Amboyna Burl, Red Mallee Burl, Roble Burl, Red Swirl Resin, and Red Sea Coral. I chose the Red Sea Coral not just because of its color but because it came from the sea and I am sentimental, I thought it would be cool to have it in the “SEA Monster” :) It was a bit disappointing because when I sanded it flu...

End Grain Floor #13: Leviathan Part 2

05-25-2012 03:04 PM by Nate Meadows | 6 comments »

While the Epoxy was curing on the Mother of Pearl, I started cutting out the body. I started with the lips which I cut out of Tulip. (I have to admit, the mouth looks creepy here:) ) I then started cutting the body out of the Snakewood. There was a small challenge here. I had to break the body up into section so that it would follow the pattern on the Snakewood, otherwise as the body of the Leviathan bent and curved the pattern would not follow it. I actually messed up on the first se...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

05-24-2012 03:01 AM by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #28: On my way to do some Scrolling

05-15-2012 09:11 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

So I have been a little behind in creating scrollsaw projects. Today was a perfect day to do some catch-up. The weather was nice with some breeze blowing and mild temperatures. I have projects all lined up and the material to complete some (see the previous post). So I was going to do some scrolling. Well as it happens, about a week ago I noticed a black dot in front of me floating around. I realized it was some optical issue but not sure what. I learned that it could be what is called ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #701: Making Choices

05-14-2012 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Choices. We all have them and make hundreds of them every day. Some are automatic and simple (do I want cream or milk in my coffee) while others can be more difficult and have a lasting impact on our lives or businesses. This is especially true if you have your own business. While it may seem to be really glamorous and ‘cool’ to be able to make all the decisions regarding your future, sometimes it can get taxing. Some decisions aren’t as easy to make as others and the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #700: Everything's Working (that's scary!)

05-13-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Sometimes we plan things and they actually work out like they are supposed to. When that happens, it can be puzzling and confusing. Have I finally found the ‘magic formula’ to make things work? Humm . . . I spent the day yesterday cutting. (And cutting and cutting some more) It wasn’t a bad thing. In fact it felt really good to be at the saw. As I watched the piles of wood grow I felt a great sense of accomplishment. While I was working, my little Canon printer w...
