PhotoBlog: How I designed and created the First Year Ornament

01-07-2012 05:20 PM by jimleigh1313 | 0 comments »

See HERE for completed project Recently, I bought a Grizzly bandsaw. One of the reasons I decided to buy a bandsaw was to re-saw lumber for use on a scroll saw. The scroll saw was my first ‘tool’ that I bought, and before, I was limited to purchased plywoods for my scroll saw cuts. I was quite surprised at how much wood can be obtained from a single length of wood when re-sawn. It will definitely expand my creativity for such projects. Outlined is the first such project ...

At the Lathe #1: Urchin Shell Ornaments

12-12-2011 07:32 AM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

I found figuring out how to make these ornaments quite a fun challenge. (I already posted this video in my projects, but apparently that does not get it onto the LumberJocks Video Page) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57125#comment-1116565

52 Weeks #47: Compensating for last week’s delay

12-02-2011 05:09 PM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Well it has been a busy and exciting week in the shop which is good because this weekend I am way busy with other things so that is why I am posting now instead of on Sunday. The pens that I have been making lately will be going on sale. They are all made out of wood that was salvaged from work and are now going to be sold in the gift shop at work. I made a very simple display stand that will hold the pens and some information cards about them and how the wood they are made out of came fro...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #503: New Ornaments!

10-26-2011 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was an extremely productive day and I finished both my order for the large snowflake and also my new ornaments. It felt good to get so much accomplished. I don’t think I worked harder than I do on most days, but I actually reached the finish line on two things at almost the same time so there is a great feeling of accomplishment. Finishing up the snowflake puzzle wasn’t bad at all. I actually made two of them so one is sitting here on the shelf if anyone else decid...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #4: the ornaments

12-03-2010 06:40 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

ok, so 87 days ago I worked out (and blogged) the plan, and workflow to knock off a series of 100 similar turned ornaments. Similar in size and shape, but with a world of variety in the woods used. Rather than attempt another 30 projects in 30 days, 100 of the same seemed similarly challenging, but reasonable enough. I’d only really need to turn 3 a day for a month, plus a couple more on the weekends and I’d be all set. As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the photogr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

WWI Whirligigs

01-20-2010 01:41 AM by RicksWhirligigs | 3 comments »

Hey everyone!I have recently opened up a shop on Etsy.com to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:http://www.rickswhirligigs.etsy.comthanks!!!

Segmented Christmas Tree Ornament

12-12-2009 07:04 PM by darryl | 11 comments »

After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...

Ornament 2007 #2: Finalizing Pattern and Prototype

11-05-2007 05:46 AM by cheller | 4 comments »

I finally got the time today to work on the ornament design. An hour or so of scanning, printing, cutting and pasting got me to a design that looked promising. There are a few layout lines showing in this, the black lines are the pattern lines. The next step was to cut out a prototype and see how it worked. So it was off to the scroll saw. Just for kicks here’s a picture of my scroll saw. Once I found a piece of stock 1/8” thick walnut, I needed to attach the pattern to ...
