08-17-2013 07:48 AM by palaswood | 3 comments »

Riding home I came upon a discarded solid oak ladder from a nice bunk bed bed I’m sure. ( I love Orange County). I parked the the bike to inspect it closer It was super heavy but I managed to balance it on my handlebars and ride it home. (not my first rodeo) I got it onto my workbench and sanded down a section, put a lil oil on The posts and rungs are laminated but all in all, not too shabby. gonna think about how to use the lumber here. The possibilites are...

creche #1: Awaiting a manger

11-12-2006 05:12 PM by scottb | 3 comments »

I was commissioned to build a creche for one of my Dad’s customers (Well, Dad was commissioned, but I’m “subcontracting” At any rate I’m getting paid to do woodworking, and not resorting to family to supply the cash!) Before meeting my client, I whipped up a bunch of rough sketches for something simple and rustic. Meanwhile (and unbeknownst to me), he headed on down to one of the big box stores to tell them about his project, and get a materials list. Fortunately one of my designs jived wi...

07-24-2007 03:54 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Blogging Be-tween Other Office Paper-Work Yes this is how my morning has filled up, while sitting here at my desk, amongst this stacked pile of what must be done with paperwork. This is not what brings out the best in me at i-of-eye, but then again with patience and giving of thanks….so I will overcome! Notes to myself, also include: —-writing notes on what is to be done around here at the farm….—-writing notes and calling about site work, energy codes, building ...

Constructing "Old 99" #18: End of the line

09-10-2008 12:29 PM by MrWoody | 3 comments »

The first thing I did this morning is glue the side and water tank assembly to the base and set it aside to dry. Next I cut out and sanded the side trim pieces the way I did them for the cab.On pages 5 and 6 of the plan we skipped the dowels. I set up a board with a V groove and guide marks on the drill press. With a centering bit I found the center and clamped it firmly. I need eight boiler rail posts 3/16” dowel 3/4” long with a 3/32” hole drilled 1/8” from one end. Fro...

My Rocking Horse

03-02-2009 05:22 AM by RobH | 3 comments »

Hey all, I usually do not post pictures of projects that are incomplete, unless I am blogging the entire process. I just had to post this though. I have been working on a rocking horse for my boys for at least a year. One thing or the other has kept me from working on it. Well, since I have been a little short on cash to get the lumber to finish up the entertainment center, I have been working on the horse. At first I thought I was going to get it done for Christmas, but that fell t...

Fly Fishing Rods #3: Gluing up the birch bark

10-06-2009 07:16 AM by Matt Vredenburg | 3 comments »

While waiting for some of my rod materials to come in, I started the process of preparing the birch bark. You’ll see that I have cut circular pieces of birch bark using a 1 1/2 inch hole saw with a 1/4 in hole in the middle. Before the glue up, I used some sand paper to clean up the surfaces…and then veneer the individual wafers together using Titebond III glue. Clamping then up using a 1/4 inch threaded rod (approximately 12 inches long), with a large washer, piece of wood (1...

Got my order

11-25-2009 01:29 AM by TheWoodArtisan | 3 comments »

Purchased the Turnlock Sign Routing set and a 20 lb box of assorted hardwood scraps. My wife thinks I’m crazy for ordering scrap wood but I got some real nice pieces of walnut and ash that will i will be using for the chessboard I am wanting to start. I don’t have a bandsaw yet so I am going to be cutting down the boards when I visit my Grandparents over the holiday. I think my Grandpa is as excited as I am ;)

Dovetail of the Day #4: Day 8

01-28-2010 03:25 AM by doorslammer | 3 comments »

Well, it finally happened… I’ve been struggling a bit since my first couple of attempts and feeling like my beginners luck was running out. Finally, today I had the ultimate oh crap moment. As I was tapping my joint together my pin board split. At first I was devastated, but it helped me realize some things I was doing wrong. Obviously my pins were too big, but I think for two different reasons. First, when I was scribing my tails onto the pin board, I was overhanging the ta...

for more pics check out my blog here! My client, Jeffrey, and I imagined, designed and built the first point of purchase (pop) product display unit for tünr last summer.

This is what he called tünr the sock and lace company that is now launched on the Internet and in street boutiques across the country. He approach...
