Small Projects #41: Crosses -- More Easter Gifts -- Rosewood, Zebrawood, Cherry, Yellowheart, Purpleheart

03-08-2021 03:09 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was an Easter gift for a nice little old Italian widow I know. It came out so well I had to make another one for SWMBO. Then another for a neighbor and another … six so far! Rosewood and zebrawood The “standard” proportions are that the cross bar is half the height, centered 1/4 of the way down. The material was ripped to 1-1/2”, resawn on the TS to 3/4” thick and then cut to length, 15” and 7-1/2”. This used over 22-3/4” of a 24&#...

Small Projects #40: Easter Shrine

02-28-2021 03:31 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend of SWMBO is nice older lady who is quite devout. Thought this would make a nice gift for Easter. Bought a nice 9” tall statue of Jesus and wanted to put it in a fancy box suitable for table display. I just got the Fast-Joint Mini set up and dialed in. This was going to be a test of the jig. 9” H x 3” W x 2” D statuette with customized engraved plate. Easter colors are purple and yellow and it just so happens I just got some yellow heart and I inventory ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1698: BUNNIES!!!!

02-17-2016 01:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I took the day off  from 'social media' yesterday for the most part because I was on a roll. I was in the process of finishing up sanding and packaging several wood orders that I wanted to get to the post by the time the truck came for pickup in the afternoon. (Check!)  I was also doing some drawing for a wonderful fellow designer and I wanted to get some things to her so she could get on with her own designing. She is creating some rubber stamps of her drawings and I am hel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1514: SHEEP!!!!

03-11-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is NOT snowing today.It is hazy and dull outside, and I can see the tops of the bare trees waving slightly in the breeze. There are still mountains of snow – some drifts 3-4 feet high – and they are no longer that beautiful pristine white, but rather rather dirty looking and grey. As I look out to my car, however, I notice that the banks of snow that surround it no longer have it completely encased. They have pulled back quite a bit, leaving a gap between the wall of snow and t...

Woodworking For Therapy #15: AN AWESOME WOOD SHOP IS WAITING FOR ME!

04-19-2014 11:20 PM by Steve Kreins | 15 comments »

Disclaimer: If you are offended by my references to my Christian Faith, PLEASE DO NOT READ ANY OF MY POSTS. THANK YOU. I have a brand new Work Shop being built for me. I’ll tell you about it in a minute, but first….... I figured it was time for an update on my blog. I’ve been busy this week finishing a few projects before I go into the hospital Tuesday. I also prefabbed a few pieces for a box that I might feel like working on when I get home. The Radiologist is goi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1247: Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

02-16-2014 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I woke up this morning to yet another round of snow. This time, it is accompanied by wind and you can barely see across the road to the river. I would almost call it a ‘blizzard’. This winter seems particularly brutal for many people, but at least for us here in Nova Scotia, we have had breaks of warmth and even rain in between the winter storms which continue to melt things down to bare pavement. It does keep the piles of snow manageable. As usual, I don’t mind it ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #972: Did Someone Say "Sparkle?"

02-28-2013 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Right now I am multi-tasking. I suppose that I am always muti-tasking, but this time I am working on several different smaller projects at the same time. I have a lot of new ideas, and it seems that I just don’t have the time to finish one before I need to start on another. For a designer that is a good thing. One of the main things that I am working on is my next article for the magazine. The article is going to be about adding some “bling” to your scroll sawing proj...

The Ants and the Fire – A True Story from my Woodshop

04-11-2009 09:22 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 20 comments »

This Blog entry has nothing to do with woodworking, other than it involves firewood, my woodshop woodstove, and my thoughts as a woodworker looking for some heat this week, and ultimately expresses a better understanding of another Woodworker’s life. I guess that counts, so I hope you’ll stick with me to the end, this is a true story, I didn’t make this up. This week we’ve had some unusually cold weather, and then warm, and then cold again. I was able to put up six pickup truck l...

Happy Easter!

03-23-2008 10:19 AM by Eric | 6 comments »

Hope everyone has a nice Easter this year. It’s already late afternoon here, after enjoying a nice day at church and at home. I posted a Good Friday project in the projects section here, but due to a flurry of project postings, it didn’t get much time in the LJ “showroom”. I’m planning on it being an annual project, and I invite the rest of you to join me!
