Church Clock Project #6: Open For Service

02-24-2011 08:27 PM by William | 8 comments »

Lord bless the UPS guy!Ok. Maybe that was just a tad in poor taste, but I was so happy that my clock and new plans arrived. I was not happy that I failed to read the part about, “battery NOT included”. I started to town to get one since it is an odd sized type N battery. I stopped for gas though, and after getting over the sticker shock of the thirty cent increase in gas since I filled up my wife’s Jeep yesterday, I made the decision that the clock doesn’t actually hav...

Church Clock Project #5: It'll Be Ready For Service By Sunday

02-24-2011 06:17 AM by William | 9 comments »

First things first today, I had to finish cutting the lower side gable trim.Here’s a view of the side gable trim pieces in place.Here’s the front side gable trim. Also, this is where my day started getting uh, umm, interesting. I think that’s a good description of it.I cut these two pieces, but for some reason they were too short. It took a lot of head scratching for me to figure out how and why. When I done the roof, I didn’t follow the plans. Since I had built this b...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7: ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7:

02-23-2011 10:04 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

OK Jocks – I have a blade question. I have a Porter Cable 16” scrollsaw (like you get at the big hardware stores) and I am starting to have problems with the lower blade holder. When using PLAIN END blades (loike a #2) seems like the lower clamp lets go most of the time. It is getting fuustrating. I tighten it as hard as I can and make sure it is in the center of the screw. What else cai/should I be doing. This is no fun at all.

Church Clock Project #4: It's In The Details

02-23-2011 06:22 AM by William | 5 comments »

Since I had a very productive day and have lots to show, I’m just going to jump right in.Gables, dormers, doghouses. I’m not sure what to call them. I call them dormers. I was told today though that they are called gables. In this photo though, on the left I guess you could call my jig to build them. It is just a simple square that is, well, square. The two sides of each gable has a 45 degree bevel across the top, a 35 degree bevel down the back, and a 20 something degree angle go...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #255: I Need Some Lathe Advice

02-13-2011 02:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I was very pleased at all the positive feedback that I received from the project yesterday. It really got me thinking about an entire new direction of designing. However, I am not going to try to kid you – I know absolutely nothing about lathe work. All I know is that you spin a piece of wood and use a chisel to remove material. That’s it. I don’t know how many of you remember me talking about my good friend Cari who first introduced me to the scroll saw. Her dad w...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #6: Scrollsaw Blade Tension

02-12-2011 07:09 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

I read alot about blade tension and I kn ow that is a problem I have. Most of what I read talks about the sound of the blade. That sound reasonable. However I just saw a new post that talked about defection as a better method. The comment was the the thickness of the balde would change the sound and as I should always be wearing my hearing aids I could not tell anyway. It seems that this deflection should be a better method. I will be trying this out this afternoon (as it is finally warmer in...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #254: Evolution of a Design

02-12-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I really love the way we get to interact with each other through places like this. I know that the internet sometimes gets a bad rap because people abuse it, but I also think that the way we use it here in Lumberjocks and other similar forums is a fine example of how great it can be. I have met people from all over the world here who I consider friends. I have learned a lot from so many who are willing to help others, and I hope I have also helped some people too. A couple of weeks ago, ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #5: The Business Side of Scrollsaw, Part 2

02-07-2011 12:10 AM by jerrells | 1 comment »

So as I continue to look at the business side of doing scrollsaw work, that is earning money for your (my) work, I am collecting information from all available resources. Most of this information will be used, in the initial stages, to attend Craft and Woodworking shows. There seems to be so much information available that with a little research one should be well prepaired to attempt this type of operation. So here is the information I have found, so far. 1. Research the type of shows ava...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #4: Scrollsaw - The Business Side

02-01-2011 06:03 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I am now semi-retired and looking for new things to do I have thought, a lot, about using the scrollsaw to make a little money. First I think I am fairly good at the process of making things not that I don’t have lots yet to learn. I know that some of you have a business side to your woodworking and/or scrollsawing. Where possible I hace read and learned from each of you. I have, also, searched to Internet for information about “The Business Side of Craft Shows” and ̶...
