ScrollSaw Information and Resources #62: Where to fine the old, olde scrollsaw patterns

145 days ago by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...

Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

533 days ago by dj1096 | 1 comment »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

122 days ago by brucethecontrarian | 1 comment »

She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...

The Simpler Life

42 days ago by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...

Gramaphone Restoration Project #1: The Initial Teardown

1354 days ago by Robster40 | 0 comments »

A good friend of mine had bought a Columbia Gramaphone at an auction a few years back and has had it sitting in his storage garage ever since. I’m not sure as to how old the actual unit is, but I could guess the 1930’s to 1940’s at best. It’s a pretty generic model and I suspect it wasn’t the deluxe unit by any means. Since he and I only met within the last year, he never bothered to do anything with it. When he found out that I was pretty good with refurbishi...
