Live edge chopping blocks

05-11-2013 03:54 PM by inchanga | 3 comments »

I recently acquired a slab of Scots Pine and decided to make two gtable tops out of it. The tops can be used as butchers block chopping boards, coffee table tops or even garden table or bench tops. The pictures show the sequence of work and the methods used to process the lumber from its rough state to the finished product. The timber was seven foot long, two foot wide and about three inches thick. It had been air dried for two years. The sliding table on the saw is ideal for cros...

Scroll Saw Portraits - HOW TO #2: Part 2 - Full Non Video Tutorial with screen shots.

01-27-2013 06:19 AM by MichaelAgate | 17 comments »

Hi everyone, Not sure if you seen my previous message about the video. The quality was just so bad, I couldn’t post it. The resolution was set too low. What I have below, is a tutorial on how to create your patterns. I made the tutorial as simple as possible by showing you what to push and click. I didn’t spend any time in explaining the program or any real features. My goal was to give you something that you can follow by simply following the instructions. This tutorial should...

03-19-2013 06:41 PM by littlecope | 24 comments »

A cold shop, repeated life interruptions, and the Winter blahs conspired to keep me from getting a lot done in February. The beginning of warmer temperatures is slowly getting things back on track…February did see a first for me though, I went out and actually bought some Lumber!! Debbie and I took a trip down to Highland Hardwoods in Brentwood, N.H., a Woodworker’s Paradise…It’s difficult to decide what to purchase, with the wide selection that they have, but I ultima...

Box Building #5: Barrel Hinge Installation

03-22-2012 09:50 PM by Kent Shepherd | 22 comments »

After showing some of my boxes in “Projects”. I have received some inquiries about the installation of the barrel hinges I sometimes use. I hope this helps for some of you. I know it will be overkill for many of you, so just use what you wish. With any type hinge, the layout is critical. These hinges are simple to install, but you must get your holes in the right place. If you don’t, I can assure you , you will not like the results, and you will not be able to go back and...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #630: Christmas in March!

03-02-2012 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I seemed to have a pretty decent day yesterday work-wise. I did the final drawing and tweaking on the new project that I am working on. This one I will be doing for my own site and not selling off to the magazine. I also got the entire thing cut out and I hope to get all the finishing and assembly done today. So far it is cute, and I am happy with it. It will be a nice and quick project that will also be fun. Keith is working on some outstanding snowflake ornaments and they are really...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

Bandsaw Box Pattern

07-22-2011 05:47 PM by JustAGirl | 7 comments »

Here is the pattern for a box that is currently in my projects. It has a slide top lid. Just make sure you cut the back off BEFORE you cut the lid out. That way the lid has a stop. I know this from my own mistake.
