Making a Violin #1: Making a Violin

10-05-2010 04:02 AM by RonPeters | 13 comments »

Now that the bench is finished, it’s time to start using it for its intended purpose! I thought I’d document my progress along the way. I hope that’s ok with everyone? What to do first (besides building a bench)? Got to have a plan! Well, actually, you need a mold to shape the ribs (sides) of the violin to. A good book to start learning is ”The Art and Method of the Violin Maker” by Henry Strobel. Here’s a plan. Though I won’t follow this one...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #946: Pushing to a Higher Level

01-29-2013 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

Yesterday I got a little bit side tracked. Not really too far off the path I was heading, but just enough to change gears for a day and try something new. So it was for a good cause. I often receive many comments from people that I call ‘regulars’ here on the Lumberjock site. Even though this site is quite large at over 50,000 members, as with any place, we seem to fall into a niche or corner of the site where we feel accepted and comfortable. I am not different, as when I wr...

String Things

I just found this. Its a jpg of the TurboCAD drawing where my ideas for a lot of my square boxes originated. Its really just the computer equivalent of doodling. I started with one pattern and branched out as the mood took me. Using the basic net for a box and curves and straight lines drawn from various points on it. The drawing seems to grow, over time,, in random directions, like a mind map. The ones with the green corners have made it into boxes with names such as; No Quarter, Dinn...

My Take on the Restricted Space/Budget Shop. #2: The Beating Heart of the Shop

01-05-2012 03:34 AM by shipwright | 40 comments »

There are two institutions to be given credit for how well I have been able to equip my shop for so little money and in so little space. They cannot be separated. They are ShopSmith and Craigslist. I was for most of my life one of the “pros” who have all the tools and looked down my nose at multi-function tools in general and ShopSmith in particular. I was wrong. If you can justify the money and have the space, fine, you don’t need to consider them and can go on in bli...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #547: How Can I Recommend Something That I Don't Believe In?

12-09-2011 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 38 comments »

I like to try to participate in several different forums as time permits. Since I work here at home and live in a rather remote area, much of my socialization and networking depends on computers and forums such as these, as well as customer feedback. Lately, with the holidays approaching, I have been asked several times which scroll saw I would recommend. Although it may seem like it would be an easy questions, it isn’t as easy as one would think. Most of you who know me and rea...
