Stickley #369 Morris Chair #3: Slant Arms and Side Slats

03-03-2014 08:08 PM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is how the Morris chair looks at this stage.-----I wanted to drill all the 5/8” holes for the backrest assembly before the glueup. It seems like this step would be easy to forget, so I’ll take care of it now. -----There are a lot of odds and ends to take care of before glueup, including easing edges of the parts at the router table. -----Now the side assembly can be dry fit. -----Note that the angled top side rails are 1/4” taller than the shoulders of the leg tenon...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1287: A Creative Mix

04-08-2014 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It’s funny how I have gotten into the habit of writing here every day. As I am approaching my fourth anniversary of starting my blog, I think of all the time and energy that I put into posting each morning here and it boggles my mind. If someone were to approach me four years ago and tell me that this was my ‘assignment’, I don’t think that I could have pulled it off. But looking back, I realize just how important posting here has been to me on so many levels. Thro...

Woodworker tries to build a deck #1: Design

10-05-2014 03:02 AM by CodyC | 4 comments »

Well, I’m usually fairly confident when I’m planning a new woodworking project…but there’s something about building a structure that attaches to my house that makes me a little nervous. The plan is to build a low-profile deck/patio that should be flush with the slab of my existing covered porch. The porch is not very deep and there’s not a whole lot of space for us to sit and enjoy the fall weather in the back yard, so hopefully this will remedy that situatio...

Please check out my review of Stanley Bostich

05-06-2008 03:48 AM by jockmike2 | 4 comments »

I got my Stanley Bostich Compressor from SB a few weejs ago but have been unable to give a review of it due to medical reasons. This really deserves a read. Because I complained on Lumberjocks about their compressor, I was contacted by their Director of Product Developement at Stanley Bostich and asked what he could do for me to make thing right, in an email. First of all I was flabberghasted, I didn’t know what to email back to this apparent bigwig of this big company. He wanted to kno...

Weekend Bench #5: Advice

12-31-2008 04:31 AM by dsb1829 | 4 comments »

Okay, more like add vise. Not much doing today. I spent a good 4 hours in the garage, but only got as far as mounting the end vise and the legs. Using the predrilled holes on the legs and a transfer punch allows me to position the holes in the top. I used a block jig to keep the holes lined up. I drilled the hole in the block using the drill press. Next comes mounting the tail vise. I wavered back and forth on this. In the end I decided to just drop it into the end apron. Us...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #3: Scribing / Shaping

05-26-2009 08:24 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

Okay here is one of the most tedious parts of this lamp. Here are pictures of how the lamp limb looked before we started shaping it to the base. There are several types of scribing tools available, but we have not been able to find one that works for us. To start the process, we find the point where the limb is the higest from the base. This is our starting point for the line that we draw to start shaping. We use a pencil compass for our scribing lines. The line has to stay level / perpe...

Cronicles of Draven #2: Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of more slivers...

01-15-2010 04:58 PM by Deuce | 4 comments »

As I start the morning in my typical fashion of black coffee and cigarettes, I blow the sawdust off the lid of my travel mug and find my miniature files and carving tools. Such has been the highlight of my mornings, waking up to sharpen my tools for the day. Being laid off has been daunting my thoughts, and my car still being stuck in the impound has aided my lack of income into throwing me into a very dangerous state of being. I’ve been edgy lately, with those who deserve it and tho...

Built In Closets #1: Getting Started - I hate wire shelves

10-15-2010 04:50 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

Recently the wire shelves in our closets have started to fall down due to overloading. A normal person might have given away some cloths and re mounted the shelves. An aspiring lumber jock, however, will recognize a chance to rip out everything and rebuild from scratch. So I decided to the take the lessons learned and the designs from my previous closet project and scale it up to a room that is nearly three times the size Basic design is 6 towers and 4 sets of shelves. Each t...
