100 year old Craftsman Desk Find

02-09-2015 01:37 AM by KayBee | 5 comments »

My mom runs a thrift store in the senior housing place she lives. She’s always calling me with ‘great finds.’ This time it turned out to be one. An old roll top craftsman that she thought I’d like it for the wood. My oldest always wanted a roll top, she grabbed her boyfriend and told me to meet them there. That’s why no assembled pictures, they were already loading the thing up. Anyway, started cleaning up the grime and found this on the bottom of one of th...

Desk Chairs #6: Tapered Legs and Pyramid Schemes

01-07-2018 03:58 PM by EarlS | 6 comments »

Tapered legs don’t sound all that difficult. Honestly, once I got things set up it was very straight forward. The plans for the Kevin Rodel side chair call for tapering the upper section of the rear legs from where the chair rails connect to the rear legs up to the top of the leg, about 25-1/2”. It is a very subtle taper on the outside edge, from 1-1/2” to 1-1/4”. As usual though, there is a catch, the leg has a 7 degree bend in it which means the right side le...

Carving face. #1: Carving face - part 1.

11-05-2013 09:28 AM by Snycerz | 1 comment »

This project is still in my workshop. I took this emocional face from an ancient sculpture “Death of Laocoon”. It’s not easy to show emotions in sculpture and keep of all anatomy in one piece ;) That’s why this one is taking me so long. Oak wood. Movie part 1. - Face emotionsMovie part 2. - Face emotions ...hope the third part will be the last one ;)

Arts & Crafts - Living room tables #2: Coffee table - mostly done

09-07-2011 12:25 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 5 comments »

My 16-year old son built this Arts and Crafts coffee table almost completely on his own. He built it from plans. We did minor parts together. I stained and he wiped the stain to get consistent finish between the pieces. The plans do not have a tile top so we did some improvising. He made through tenons and a frame for the top. We had to do some improvising since things didn’t line up exactly on the top since the tenons were so long. In the end, we cut the tenons shorter and used plug...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #15: Consignments Stores - Are They Worth It?

10-08-2011 02:53 AM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #27: A Good Day in the Shop - Kinda

05-12-2012 11:18 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

Is was a good day in the shop – as Shelia would say – kind of. I have been organizing and throwing out. If I have not touched it in several years – OUT OF HERE. That is what I did not of the day. But then there is that scrollsaw sitting over there. A friend of mine wanted a hook to hand a quilt on the wall. OK first project. Now to the second. Well I wish I had gotten to the second. As I looked at the project I did not have enough wood for that one. OK another project ...

Sewing Center #4: Finished Just in Time

12-08-2009 09:29 PM by SouthpawCA | 0 comments »

OK … so all the trials I had with the finish have been overcome. However, next time I do anything with poplar I’m going to use milk paint. All in all it turned out pretty nice and it is being used already. Here is a pic of the finished project. More will be added to the Projects page.
