MonkWerks: Build a Vintage Shoe Shine Box (Part 1)
I am just going to post a quick update today, as I still have quite a bit that I want to accomplish. I am working on writing the pattern packets for the new projects that we are in the process of adding to our site. I finished two of the three packets yesterday and I want to have the third one posted by the end of the day. Keith has also been working on some new projects that will be included in the update. Below is a picture of an ornament from his new set that he designed. He calls t...
Slow progress today. I had to do emergency surgery on the Shopsmith Mark V – the lower gear ratio mechanism decided to start grinding on the motor. So I was only able to finish cutting the dovetails on the side panels and the rabbets for the top and bottom. The stopped dados will have to wait until later. Oh … and I finished the removable shelf.
As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...
Here are a few pictures, from the past couple of days, of the sequence of making moldings and of them put up. I don’t know how large fancy moldings are made but this was my solution to doing it. The ogee’s are made with one router bit then stacked on top of each other. The large partial cove moldings are made with Rockler’s table saw crown molding maker. It is a nicely made jig that lets you set up your table saw to cut into wood using the round blade to gouge out a large co...
Here is the 3rd part of making a face relief. I’ll not write to much, just enjoy the short movie ;) MOVIE
To me, one of the best things I find with designing is that the only rules that I have to follow are my own. I think that is one of the main reasons that I became a designer in the first place. I never really followed along with rules. It isn’t that I am not able to do so. Usually I am pretty good at reading instructions and following them to the letter. . My friend Cari and I were “experts” at doing things like putting together projects, toys and furniture (you know ...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1167: Wonderful Progress (And a Bonus Mini-Lecture!) ;)
I had another busy day yesterday, although it was a good one. Not only did I spend the afternoon cutting out my new ornaments on my new Excalibur (which was simply just FUN!) but I also spent the morning getting to work on my next pattern for another ornament set. The set that I am working on (SLD445 Traditional Damask Ornaments) is not for the faint of heart. I wanted something that would push the envelope a little bit and I think these designs qualify. I wanted to make them a bit sm...
Time to see if I can do two projects at once. I started work on a shoe shine box today. Sometimes I am thankful that I can have awesome wood with which to work. I threw a little denatured alcohol on it to get an idea of what it will look like. I glued up the panels and dimensioned the external pieces.
Hello friends, This time i want to show u how i made an arbour. I will try to show it in steps. It will be a lot of steps ;)In the beginning i had to made a project. I based just on a picture of completed work, so i had to project all of it (roof, floor, walls, connetions, ...). This was the first time for me to do such a things, and make it. I wasn’t easy to do. But with every day that passed, i gained a lot of new experience. The woods i used:- Fir wood- Pine wood- Larch wood- Oak ...
