resisting the urge

07-05-2010 03:33 AM by MrsN | 4 comments »

I am at a lovely bonfire/picnic with family and friends. Enjoying great food and music celebrating the 4th of July. We have a great bonfire going, nice and hot with some great hardwoods. I keep resisting the urge to grab pieces out of the fire that would be “perfect” for something. So far the fire has gotten some maple, walnut and ash. I did grab one pece that will make some christmas ornaments like the ones I posted recently, but technicaly my mother in law grabbed it and asked f...

Learnin' Some Turnin' #1: The First Attempt

03-28-2011 04:10 AM by WibblyPig | 4 comments »

I took the lathe (Rikon Mini) out of the box this morning and put it on the bench in the garage shop (after getting some good advice here on the board NOT to put it in the basement shop by the furnace) I figured my first project would be a wine bottle stopper. While I was at Woodcraft buying the lathe (in the middle of an incredibly stupid March snowstorm) I picked up some stopper parts, a mandrel, a Jacobs chuck, turning chisels, and some miscellaneous blanks. I watched some YouTube v...

more boxes #1: first blog post

03-29-2012 03:01 AM by Chris Cook | 4 comments »

Hello to all, my first post To hone my skills and learn new ones, I make boxes as a means of experimentation. I’ve made about 40 boxes so far (and other things) and I have not made the same box twice as of yet. My goal is always to try new things and techniques. This sometimes leads to having to change gears and make on-the-fly adjustments. Here is one of my latest and the first time I’ve tried to have the hinge on the inside: The biggest error I made was usi...

Telrad Base part 2

10-15-2012 05:51 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

To see more pictures of the project, click here. Continuing work on the Telrad base was easy—-cloudy nights=busy days. I added a wedge to the front of the Telrad base to make it more secure when attached, shaped the whole thing and made some nice edges. I think this is just going to be an experiment in getting it done—-if I like how it handles in the field, I may make it out of oak or something more stable and solid than pine (this was all pieces of 2×4 cutoff). I h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #950: Hitting the Books

02-02-2013 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Seeing that we are moving into February, it is time to do one of the most “un-fun” parts of the job – the book work. Although I must say that I am much better prepared than I have been in previous years, as I have pretty much been keeping track of things all along. As the business keeps growing, this is an important part of it that needs to be attended to on a regular basis. This was the first year that I set up a spread sheet on the computer and have been posting all o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1261: Scroll Saw Class Entries Updated

03-05-2014 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Good day to you all. It had come to my attention that the links for many of the videos in my Lumberjocks online scroll saw class entries were missing. I have had several emails sent from those who wanted to see the videos that went along with the class lessons. They are all short cuts, but many found them very helpful to them when just beginning. I spent this morning re-linking them and now everything should be alright. The class link is here:

Becoming a Galoot #8: Rot and Rattlers

06-15-2014 07:55 PM by scruboak51 | 4 comments »

My efforts to get a nice slab cut from this beast was met with failure, but it was not without a good effort. I took every opportunity to sneak out in the garage this week and work on the big cut to rip this redwood root down; even if for only 5 minutes. Every little bit of effort adds up and makes the task seem less monotonous. I had made good progress and loosing our DSL connection on Thursday gave me an unexpected excuse to duck out of work and get some garage time in. By Friday afte...
