The Making of a Walnut Bowl/Tray

1232 days ago by cranesgonewild | 28 comments »

I was visiting my parents over the Christmas holidays, when I noticed a plastic tray full of candy on the coffee table. My mom told me she got it from the dollar store. She also told me that she loves this bowl because of the divided trays.So, being the woodworker that I am. I decided that I was going to make one out of wood. Without anyone knowing, I took measurements. I do own the CMT bowl and tray bit, and it does come with a template for making this tray. However, the overall size of that...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #2: The maple dresser tray

1511 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

First of all, I want to thank you for all your positive responses. I was able to look at some of the work and it was so impressive! I am trying to put faces with comments and projects so I can get to know everyone well, but as my brain gets older, it somehow takes me longer to associate one with the other. I get so embarrassed when I don’t remember someone. But there has been a lot of water under this bridge and after not traveling and living in the same place for the first thirty so...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #385: Along Came a Spider . . .

1121 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I worked on another candle tray yesterday. I did decide to go with the Halloween them for the time being. Whether it is the right or wrong decision, only time will tell but I wanted to go with my gut this time just to see what would happen. The design I came up with was pretty simple. In cutting it, I found that it was on of the easiest things I have made in a long time. (really) Simple isn’t bad thougha (we talked about that before) and it will be very easy for a new scroll sa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #373: "Roasted Birch" - a New Discovery for Me

1133 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I love when I am so excited about work that I can’t wait to get out of bed to start the day. It may sound silly to some of you, but it does happen a lot lately. I was lying in bed thinking about the new projects and I couldn’t wait to finish working on them today. What has got me all worked up, you ask? It seems that I have stumbled upon a type of wood that I had never worked with before and used it out of necessity and now that the project is finished, I absolutely love it....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #322: More Cutting

1184 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off by thanking everyone for their help on the oak pieces. I was glad to hear that the problem could be solved and worked on the two pieces yesterday. I made a bleach/water solution and put the board in the shower and sprayed them liberally with the mixture. I let it set for a bit, and then used a small scrub brush to work it in further. After a couple of hours, I rinsed them and allowed them to dry in a well-ventilated place. They really do look much better. By the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #138: Getting the Picture

1374 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am glad that yesterday is behind me. I am not (really) complaining, but it is good that today is a new day and will be much less tedious than yesterday. It wasn’t disastrous or anything like that, but it was just the kind of day where it seemed that I had to work much harder than usual to achieve not greatness, but mediocrity. I don’t mind working that hard for greatness. In that case, the end results is its own reward. I worked much harder yesterday than I did on the day w...

Routed Out Serving Tray

605 days ago by ~Julie~ | 15 comments »

I decided to use some of my wood stock to make some trays. I started with a piece of wood that I needed help identifying and had help from fellow lumberjocks to do that. It turned out it was birch which I planed down and cut to the size of 25” long x 7 1/2” wide x 13/16” thick: For 3” at each end, on the underside of the piece, I routed out a depth of 5/16” using a bowl bit: (This was cleaned up afterwards with a sander.) Here you can see the profile ...

Tray Table Tutorial #1: My Brother's Tray Table - measured drawings and instructions for construction

1117 days ago by lightweightladylefty | 2 comments »

I was asked if I would share plans for the tray table I made for my brother. It actually took more time attempting to write these plans than it did to complete the tray table. I did not take any construction photos so I have used SketchUp scenes to try to illustrate the steps. Disclaimer: This is the plan which I made on SketchUp before making the tray. ( I didn’t follow it exactly since I found that I had already surfaced some stock to 5/8” and used it instead of 1/2” thickness.) It s...

Tray Table Tutorial #2: My Brother's Tray Table - measured drawings and instructions for construction

1116 days ago by lightweightladylefty | 8 comments »

We left off at a point where it would be a good idea to now do a dry-fit of the top to the apron. Dry-fit the top to the apron. Before going further, now is a good time to dry-fit the slant top to the apron so that you can get the exact location of the dado which stores the metal stand when the desktop is closed. With the metal stand flat against the back of the top, place the top on the right side of the apron, allowing a 1/2” overhang on front, left, and back. Carefully mark where t...
