My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1419: New Patterns Up on Our Site

10-09-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1417: Two New Candle Tray Patterns and a New Plaque

10-07-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday I had a little change of plans. While I had intended to finish up the Gothic Bat Pillar Candle holders, I kind of got side tracked and decided to do some more cutting instead.  I had not added to my regular candle trays in quite a while – even though I have many more ideas, and when I created the pillar candle holders, I also thought that a similar design would translate to a candle tray as well. So the other morning when I was up early I decided to draw up a designs, as ...

Chain saw milling....I hope...LOL! #1: The limbs just fell from my walnut tree...with a little help

09-19-2014 12:46 AM by DocSavage45 | 27 comments »

Those of you that have followed some of my ramblings know that I have a dream of harvesting the wood from the compost site in my county. I’m starting about 30 years too late but against some very excellent advice from some competent LJ’s last winter I purchased a 50 cc 20 inch Poulan Pro and a all steel construction chain saw mill from eBay. Dallas gave me some professional advice on what where when and how that I have been digesting. Being a Woosie I bought Kevlar chaps and ...

Morris style glider #3: Cutlist 2.0

09-18-2014 08:48 PM by Orange008 | 0 comments »

After putting together my cutlist, I called up the lumber yard that I am getting the material from. They emailed me the latest price list for all their products. Seeing that you are charged extra for boards wider than 8”, I decided that going back to the cutlist to reorganize the pieces on 8” wide may benefit me. I had too much room left over on 9” wide pieces anyway, so fitting them onto 8” worked well (below), and I actually had less waste. I didn’t even hav...

Morris style glider #2: The cut list

09-17-2014 09:08 PM by Orange008 | 4 comments »

I am getting anxious to start on this project. I have the cut list (below) all ready. Unfortunately the lumber yard I am purchasing the material from is only open on the weekdays during my work hours. I finally have a Thursday/Friday off next week, so off to the lumber supplier! I would love to do this in walnut, but cost drives me to white or red oak. I may decide that this is a once in a lifetime piece and end up with walnut.

Tag Frid three legges stool #3: Tage Frid Three Legged Stool- Final Episode

09-08-2014 06:51 PM by cpine | 6 comments »

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18

Walnut Slab Coffee table #2: The Router Sled

09-08-2014 01:06 AM by ilyac | 4 comments »

After a few feeble attempts at using a belt sander and a hand plane ( as if that was going to work) I decided to build a router sled. I don’t have much in the ways of a work surface that can accommodate a piece this size so I fashioned up a few sawhorses, a bed to hold the slab, and then the router sled itself. The whole thing took me an afternoon and is made of MDF. Because the slab varies in height so much I wanted a easy way to adjust the sled potion without having to move the wal...

Walnut Slab Coffee table #1: The Slab...

09-07-2014 11:59 PM by ilyac | 0 comments »

So maybe about half a year ago I saw a posting for a walnut slab on craigslist about 2’ by 5’ by 4 to 5-1/5” thick so I jumped on it and picked it up. The plan has always been to make a coffee table out of it, but for a while I had neither the time nor motivation to really start working on it. It’s in pretty rough shape (I have no idea who took this piece down, but it looks like it was resawn with a chainsaw). I have since moved 1200 miles with it and finally st...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #3: Finished Foyer Table and Tealight Holder, On to Dining Table Design

09-07-2014 03:55 PM by elbarneso | 0 comments »

I finally finished the foyer table – the top turned out great. Even though I was suprised / disappointed at the big knots during the resawing, they are what most people comment liking when they first see it. I attached the top with steel z-clips from woodcraft – 2 on each end since the ends were bowed up a little. After I finished the table, my wife (nonchalantly) mentioned how a tealight holder would be nice to put on the bottom shelf. So of course I had to build a custom ...
