My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1846: Catching Up

07-20-2017 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I feel about writing again. It is funny how that works, isn't it?I didn't realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my absence. I very much appreciate being missed, and I promise I will do my best to try to post more regularly. It is just that sometimes getting back into a routine can be tough. I certainl...

Sauce's adventures in woodworking #1: I may make 1000 dovetail joints in my lifetime

05-21-2017 06:43 AM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

...but even if I make 1000 or 1000000 joints, this will always be my first one. Made out of a couple of scraps of pine. Soft woods make for interesting chisel work across the grain. It’s not great, but it holds pretty tightly. I wonder if some wood glue will seal up a few of those gaps if the wood expands a little. I’ll find out tomorrow when I glue it up. In case you were wondering about that missing corner on the far end of the joint… I marked the wood wrong i...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

To Give is better than to Receive

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Work Around the House #1: New Screen Door

04-21-2017 02:28 PM by b1v1r | 4 comments »

We recently bought a ~22 year old house that needs some work and updating. As one of my first real projects around the house, I needed a new screen door to enjoy our screened in porch. The old door had decayed to the point of falling apart. I thought this would be a great place to start with a new found hobby of woodworking. The finished project is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/313826 I won’t go into too much detail here – just wanted to go through my steps. As I ...

BOULLE MARQUETRY WITH BRASS, PEWTER AND FAUX TORTOISE SHELL - a beginners approach #3: Preparing the marquetry panels for gluing down, and sanding the panels ready for engraving.

04-14-2017 12:59 PM by madburg | 4 comments »

Probably the best of the color combinations. A Premier Partie with a back ground of black and faux tortoise shell. PREPARING THE MAREQUETRY PANELS FOR GLUING ONTO THE SUBSTRATE I had already decide to use epoxy glue for my assembly – but more on this later ………. With the marquetry ‘jigsaws’ assembled on the gummed paper I used a black pigmented epoxy to fill the visible saw kerfs in the design. Traditionally, crushed charcoal mixed with shellac was used. I applied my pigmented epo...
