My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1149: Romance in the Air

10-09-2013 10:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Despite so many things that are going on, I was able to sit down and concentrate and get the drawing for my next project completed. It shouldn’t have been the task that it became, but there were just so many odd things going on that it seemed that I couldn’t get the job going. Once I started though, I put on a couple of good movies and was able to stay focused and get the job done. I think in the end it is going to be pretty nice. The project is for the February (I think!) i...

LEATHERWORKING+PENS #1: Making a Pen case for sale!

03-16-2009 08:05 AM by ccpenco | 5 comments »

One of the people that my dad works with in my company has asked me to make for him a Pen complete with a leather case + a wooden box for his boss. I guess that he thinks that a good gift will improve his chances of keeping his job. Either way, i have to make it really good. He has given me pretty much free reign on what wood to use etc. So this will be an important project for me because it is one where i can really see if i’m any good at designing, etc. I ca...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #2: Dirk Boelman

01-20-2011 02:55 AM by jerrells | 4 comments »

After a little reading I have run across the name of Dirk Boelman, “proably the most talented and productive designer and developer of fretwork patterns today”. You can do a Google search and find lots of information about him or go the The Art Factory web site and see (or purchase) his patterns. as I continue to research and resource the area of Victorian Fretwork it seems that there is a lot in good information out there.

Woodworking for a Job ?

06-28-2010 08:52 PM by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

Also for the slabbing used the the 60” lucas mill slabber. The pic below the vid are 12’ slabs of the log. Enjoy and thanks for

Starting a new project

12-01-2009 05:39 AM by Martina | 5 comments »

Hey guys, so I have been away for awhile, but I am all settled into my new place, cut off 14 inches of hair, sold a car, bought a motorcycle, got promoted on my job and ready to start woodworking again in my new garage. I am about to start on a “settee” I called it a couch, but I was corrected… LOL not much on fancy names… Any tips to look out for? This is going to be something that is used regularly…. so delicate is not good – any support bracing ideas?...

Dowel joinery

02-25-2010 11:22 PM by NewPilgrim | 5 comments »

My neighbor and new buddy Paul has been teaching me how to do dowel joints, pretty fun. I am new to wood working so I am very appreciative when someone can demonstrate their skills for me. I am currently building a wooden, Victorian-style, (vintage) baby gate for our stairs. I am trying to match my current stair rail and baluster look-and-feel. I bought some Hemlock balusters, shoe rail/fillets and a nice hand rail. I’ve conditioned, and stained it to match, and so far it looks good....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...
