My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #80: Lots of Good Ideas From You All

08-22-2010 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I want to begin by thanking all who gave me their tips and advice on how they stay on top of things. Sometimes I think that we are so close to our own situations that we can’t see things clearly – especially when we are in an overwhelmed state of mind. The first thing I did was make a list of what needed to be done. Look the beast(s) in the eyes, if you will. I am a “list” person to begin with, but sometimes when I get caught up and everything is going according ...

Wood turning tools used for the Salt and Pepper Mills

08-10-2010 09:47 PM by Bob Simmons | 1 comment »

This is in response to a viewer, Helluvawreck who had questions concerning what turning tools were used during the video of the Salt and Pepper Mills. Thoughts:1. Turning salt and pepper mills is essentially spindle turning.2. Due to the length of your wood lathe you may need to bore out on your larger lathe, the drill press, or carefully by hand. However, you may be very well able to bore out on your Jet lathe.3. You can start out with this wood project and you will do fine. Suggestion...

Heating Tung/Teak oil

08-09-2010 06:51 AM by ocwoodworker | 14 comments »

My local guru who I go to for advise, said to heat the tung oil to about 140 degrees and then apply it to my walnut table. Has anyone else done this? And if so what do you apply it with? A foam brush?

Let's Turn Salt and Pepper Mills

08-07-2010 06:05 PM by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

There is something special about wood turning. It is easy to spend hours at this wood craft while working with the various woodturning tools. This particular project features salt and pepper mills of black walnut with a food-safe finish of Tried and True oil varnish. This finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel. The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4” black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces w...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

My first simple box #3: smallish update

08-05-2010 01:39 AM by Benighted | 2 comments »

Well, haven’t had a lot of time for my little box the last days but got a hour or so today rough-planing the miters and selecting and planing the exact piece of the maple I wanted to use for the top. And I think you guy’s who voted did the right selection, looks real good now that the wood is planed and the figure starts to show… The wood is just straight maple but I selected a piece which one end had a quite large branch going through the wood as I hoped it would have so...

My first simple box #2: Mitering and the BIG question.

07-30-2010 01:49 AM by Benighted | 7 comments »

Were moving along here, this time I’ll be mitering, and this will be done with a jig on the shooting board. Like this: Two edges mitered… Outside of mitered joint, not perfectly aligned in this dry fit test. inside of joint: Now to the BIG Question… Which wood do you think I should use for the top and bottom… the choices are: Maple: Cocobolo: Purpleheart: Wenge: I also have some bubinga, but it’s a little bit to thin for the look ...

The Traveling Lumberjock #3: July 21, 2010 - Richmond, VA

07-29-2010 05:42 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 3 comments »

So it was off to Virginia last week. I’ve been going to Richmond pretty regularly for four to five years now and I really enjoy the area. It’s beautiful, there’s a ton of historical stuff in the area, and of course now that I’m visiting sawmills and lumberjocks, there’s no shortage of wood and sawdust themed adventures. This was something of a short notice trip, so I didn’t have much chance to plan visits or scope folks with portable sawmills. Oddly e...
