Murphy Bed #12: Spray Gun Practice

1912 days ago by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Well today I went out and bought myself a good respirator to use when spraying paint and lacquer. Then after getting back home I went out and put some mineral spirits in my new spray gun and set up a large piece of cardboard and went to adjusting and practicing. I think I have the air adjustments very close to what needs to be when I actually start spraying the lacquer. I will just have to spend a few minutes adjusting the material flow once I get real lacquer in the gun. I also fiddle...

Furniture School #8: Caught up with the new legs

1874 days ago by TraumaJacques | 2 comments »

Well fellow jocks, I am back on track with this project. I pondered the leg issues and decided to go with a contrasting wood. I recently found a lumber yard in Toronto ( message me for more info) that is incredible for a city yard, so I had to buy something and one of these something was 8/4 walnut. I milled and tapered the legs in my own shop which was a great time saver , I mortised them in class and dry fitted the whole assembly. My phone died after 2 pictures. Sorry. The instru...

Workshop Build #5: Blocks and insulation

1611 days ago by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

It was July 2008 and since our foundation was all in, we were on to the blocks and then the framing. Our plans called for one row of blocks sitting on the foundation. Blocks were not put at the doorways at the front and side of the building and also where the large garage door would be.This shows the front workshop door area: 2” thick styrofoam had to be placed vertically around the whole perimeter of the building. We have cold winters and this is to hopefully keep the heat ...

Extremely Average #79: Book Review

1584 days ago by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, It took me 3 days to finish the book I promised to finish in two, but that was mostly because I kept rereading the good parts. And there were a lot of good parts. Today I am posting my blog piece a bit early, because my parents and I are going to the first round of the NCAA women’s tournament in Ames tonight. I am very excited and confident that the #4 seeded Cyclones will do well. I will not be rolling out of Hilton until very late and likely won’t arrive ba...

A little more breakdown....

1384 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 2 comments »

I picked up the bearings today. They’re made in Japan. I can deal with that. For about $23.00 my mind will rest easier while I’m running the saw, not being paranoid of a 50+ year bearing going kaput and sending blades my direction. Also, I finished breaking the saw down into multiple parts and took a few better pictures. Have a look at the album to see them. I left all of the smaller rusty parts soaking in some old Evaporust overnight. Let me drop a little information...

Adirondack Chair Class #13: Cutting the laps and shapes.

877 days ago by Betsy | 2 comments »

This part is a little out of order, but I found this next little blurb in another class brochure I made and thought it would be good to add in here. A half lap joint is a very basic joint, but it can be a very strong joint to connect two pieces of stock if done properly and in the right situations. The joint makes an intersection of sorts of the two pieces of wood. This intersection can be at the end of a board, in the middle or anywhere in between. I’ve seen half lap joints that are angle...

750 days ago by jerrells | 2 comments »

As part of my decision to put some products on ETSY i did a little test. I choose three products, all clocks but a different designs. I E-Mailed pictures of all three to freinds of mine and ask the to choose one that they might take a second look at or be somewhat interested in IF they were surfing a WEB Site and saw them. The results: Clock A got 2 votes Clock B got 2 votes Clock C got (you guessed it) 2 votes. WELL I guess that helped my decisions process a lot.

Hey guys, I’m going to the Dayton Artistry in Wood this week and I have a question. I am a chip carver but i am looking to get in to caricacture carving. What are some good books I can get to start off with? The books I have seen are good but show you how to carve a certain caricacture. I want to carve my on designs. Is there a book out there that shows how to carve eyes, noses, mouthes, ect and put them altogether? Any advice would be helpful.
