My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #766: Seeing Double - Part 4 of the Video Series

07-18-2012 10:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday I received my newsletter from Lumberjocks and in reading it, I noticed that Debbie had mentioned that I would be adding on to the class that I ran next year. I was glad that they thought it warranted being brought to the attention of the readers, as I am sure that many who followed the class don’ necessarily read the blog here on a daily basis and it was nice that they announced it so that those interested could again come and see what we are doing. So far, the feedback ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #11: Class is Resuming! - "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 1

07-17-2012 10:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve been here at the class. Those of you who have been following my daily blog know how busy I have been with many different things. As usual, I wish that there were 48 hours in a day (and then some time to sleep on top of that!) But there aren’t and I have to make due with the same 24 that everyone else has to work with. And that is OK. Lately I have had a lot of people write me asking many of the same questions regarding dif...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #765: Part 3 of the "Reindeer Games" Ornament Video

07-17-2012 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

Yesterday was a different kind of day. I had some time alone here at home because Keith had some family things to do and was gone for the entire day and night. It is rare that he is not here, as with both of us working from home here we are usually both here together. It was odd not having someone here to bounce ideas and thoughts off of, although I did have my three feline companions to keep me company. I decided that since I had all of this ‘quiet time’ in front of me that ...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #8: Splayed Back Legs and Stretcher

07-10-2012 06:40 PM by Mauricio | 44 comments »

Hello Friends, I’m long overdue for an update so there are a lot of pictures. I’ve made quite a bit of progress but the ending is not so happy I’m afraid, after reassembling the parts last night I discovered an error I will have to fix. The great thing about woodworking is that almost anything is fixable, it’s just frustrating. You’ll see what I mean at the end. As usual, I’ll let the pictures do most of the explaining: Cut the shoulders on the angled te...

Traditional Tajik Woodcarving

07-10-2012 01:45 AM by JoshOne | 6 comments »

Soon after I arrived in Tajikistan, I started noticing impressive examples of hand-carved ornamentation on doors, gates, signs, and crown moulding all over the capital and beyond. When I went to the Tajik Museum of Antiquities and saw similar carvings that came out of excavations from the time of Alexander the Great, I knew this needed further examination. I wanted to talk to some craftsmen. Today I got into a cab today and asked the driver if he knew of a workshop. He made some calls and...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #1: The Leap

07-03-2012 11:04 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...

Tugboat's workbench #1: Baby Steps! (...or, Can't Start Without Wood!)

07-01-2012 12:00 AM by Tugboat706 | 2 comments »

I am new to real woodworking, but I have been doing some reading on what a proper wood shop should have, and thing one always seems to be a workbench. Which I do NOT have. I found the LumberJocks forum while searching for ‘plywood toolbox’, but that led me to the forums, where a number of you have been great about offering advice and encouragement. One in particular (Danny) lives within a reasonable drive and has his own sawmill! So I made the 2:20 trek. This was a great ...
