The Kerry-All Pouch is going to be on tv !!

05-23-2010 04:58 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...alas, only on local cable, but a good start.. Our local cable television company has a local interest tv ‘magazine’ show. They shot a video clip of the Kerry-All Pouches Friday at a local building supply dealer. This dealer has been instrumental in helping me launch the various versions of the Pouch, including the original Plywood Pouch, the long and narrow Trim Pouch as well as an 8-foot Drywall Pouch, or cover and a 12-foot model. They’ve tried prototypes and given m...

Some Pictures From The Sam Maloof Exhibit

01-30-2012 08:41 AM by Marty Backe | 3 comments »

My wife and I spent the afternoon at the Huntington today, the last day of the exhibit. It was a kick that they had one of his chairs that you could sit in. Very comfortable. I wonder what Sam would think to see a bunch of his chair patterns hanging on the wall in a museum? The Huntington also has a Green & Green exhibit, including a large collection of furnishings from the Gamble house. They also have a Maloof rocker on permanent display. Here’s some pictures that I took t...

Workshop Development #54: Of all the stupid things. Peg hooks.

08-10-2012 03:53 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Okay I must admit, one of my main frustrations in my shop is peg hooks. Now I am not one of those that hates peg board and wish harmful things to those that invented, make, and market the stuff. I actually love pegboard, and the little hooks that go with it. It’s just the way those hooks are typically marketed that drives me nuts. You see most of the big box stores have either the size hook you want a piece at a time at an insanely high price, like 2” hooks for $1.89, or they w...

The Learning Curve #2: Measure? Who Needs to Measure??

05-18-2013 11:10 PM by GlennInTx | 3 comments »

As I updated my latest…well, first project – I realized how important measuring is. When I originally made the rolling worktable I did a lot of “eye-balling” and although it looks nice and functions well – if I had worked a little slower and measured a bit more accurately – it would have been easier to do the modifications I’ve just completed. I’m retraining my brain to do that thing called math (who would have thought adding fractions on th...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #28: Some progress

09-02-2013 04:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

This the mast step. When I fabricated the main part it looked pretty good, then I dry fitted it and realized the partner’s hole was about 5 mm out of line. The small piece there is to shim the step out the correct? distance. These are the pieces for the rudder mount. The pieces will be laminated at the forward edge allowing the rudder to be sandwiched between the outside pieces. There are no real clear plans on Shorty’s site on how to build a rudder so I am just going...

Hi! I was looking forward to spending more time crafting this year, but we were hit with a suffocating economy and our daughter’s medical costs. We had to relocate for various reasons, housing costs, job availability, health coverage, general survival and happiness…However, we had to give up a few things: Like the shop! And studio space! But, there are more important things in life and they all call me Mom. I did finish my bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and my last...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #5: Liu Shifu's Toolbox

02-19-2010 07:16 AM by chscholz | 3 comments »

Chinese ToolboxesSay you are a Chinese woodworker and, during your seven years of apprenticeship you have made a full set of tools. Because much of your work will be on site, you will have to find yourself a toolbox to carry your tools around. Introduction to Chinese ToolboxesOn first sight toolboxes are simply boxes to hold and transport tools. Upon further inspection one quickly realizes that toolboxes are fairly complicated tools that must meet many often conflicting requirements. On on...
