Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

04-15-2014 12:55 AM by CueballRosendaul | 4 comments »

If you use a clipboard on the job, you know how difficult it is to find a place to put it down while you handle the tape measure or tools you’re using. There’s never a good place to put it except to tuck it under your arm where it often gets dropped. Solve that problem by building a clipboard with a spring clamp on the back and you’ll never look for a spot to put it down again. Here's a YouTube video which shows more details.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1247: Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

02-16-2014 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I woke up this morning to yet another round of snow. This time, it is accompanied by wind and you can barely see across the road to the river. I would almost call it a ‘blizzard’. This winter seems particularly brutal for many people, but at least for us here in Nova Scotia, we have had breaks of warmth and even rain in between the winter storms which continue to melt things down to bare pavement. It does keep the piles of snow manageable. As usual, I don’t mind it ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #918: Phase 1 of the New Tray Complete

12-30-2012 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had a wonderfully productive day of finishing up phase 1 of my new tray yesterday. As the day before, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the saw and seeing the tray come to life was a fun experience. I was also pleased with the good response that I received from everyone regarding the design. There were lots of inquiries as to when the pattern would be available, which is a good indicator that it will be popular. While I will not be able to sell the pattern until after the May issue of C...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #917: A New Dimension in Designing

12-29-2012 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I can’t even begin to tell you all what a good day yesterday was! It felt so good to get back at the saw and actually see some of my new ideas become real. I was beginning to worry, because after being away from things for a couple of weeks, I just didn’t feel like things were going to work out well. It is funny how we do that to ourselves. It seems we have these demons inside of us that whisper doubts in the back of our minds and cause us to doubt ourselves. Many times we li...

Tool Gloat!

06-02-2012 01:55 AM by Ryan Haasen | 7 comments »

My parent’s friend’s business shut down and they were selling all of the assets tomorrow in sort of a garage-sale way. So tonight my Dad and I went in there to take a look at what they had. They had multiple tools, and some useful for woodworking. So we started making a pile. The first thing that caught my eye was a Porter-Cable router and a bunch of router bits and accessories. The accessories included bits, flush-trim bits, 1/2” and 1/4” collets and more. I have b...

(music by Two Dark Birds, animation by JuliaPott) It took Fred Jakubiec from Birdhouseaccents 25 years before he made building birdhouses his full-time job. It was well worth the wait. After 13 years as Area Supervisor at various fast food establishments, a stint at a steel mill and years of driving for Fed Ex, Fred decided working for other people just wasn’t fun anymore.He and his partner Lynn Patrick regularly took trips to Amish country to go thrifting and flea market shopping.
