My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1260: Time to Plan

03-04-2014 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to bright sunshine. I think it is a good indication as to how the day will be. I have so many ‘irons on the fire’ that I need to watch myself so that I can keep on a good track and accomplish as much as I can. So many times if I have a lot on the go, I get overwhelmed and find myself spinning my wheels in place trying to decide which direction to head first. But mapping out a plan and keeping my thoughts organized is truly necessary for me to keep making...

... than down in my basement, with a 4” razor scraper, removing GOK what adhesive from the concrete floor in preparation for Thursday, when the installer comes to put new linoleum down. When I bought my condo, a full bath was already built in the basement, but it had cheap shag carpet, a toilet a raccoon wouldn’t wash his food in, an old partially-rotting cabinet, and a $5 faucet. I pulled up the toilet to find that the flange had snapped off long ago and water had leaked for ...

My Tools #2: Who Needs a Ryobi When You Have a Ryoba?

02-18-2008 03:11 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

I just posted a review here on LumberJocks on my new Japanese ryoba saw. Click here to read it. But the picture I took today was so cool I wanted to post it here as well. This is a shot of three boards: the first was cut by my Stanley crosscut saw, the second was cut by my Crown gent’s saw, and the third was cut by my new ryoba. Is there really any comparison? Click on the picture for a more impressive larger view:

Queen Anne Tea Table

05-07-2008 06:24 AM by Kerry | 4 comments »

This is a table I made to kill two birds with one stone. First off, I wanted to make something with cabriole legs; secondly we needed a couple of end tables for our TV room. My wife gave me the go ahead to make a couple of these tables. I couldn’t find a design that I really wanted to duplicate, so I used a bit from here, a bit from there, and then added a few touches of my own and came up with this table. As I said in my project post for this table, part of the reason for putti...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #5: Almost there!

04-20-2009 03:44 PM by MyOldGarage | 4 comments »

This weekend we almost got the new cabinets entirely done. We had quite a few learning experiences along the way, which I’m extremely thankful for since these are just garage cabinets. I’m not exactly making pieces of fine furniture here out of Cherry or Oak . . . but I’m definitely learning a lot along the way. Here’s the first picture—the back on the cabinets. My daughter and I jumped in the truck and hit the local big box store for some Lauan plywood. (...

Built-In Bed #6: Don't Mock Me!

11-20-2010 04:52 AM by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience, and so far has made only a small number of terrible errors, which fortunately he can blame on others.) Just a short note today, because I haven’t had time to make significant progress these last two days. I did get out and trim the two panels that make up one side of the built-in to the same width and cut the top and bottom pieces, as well as the one perman...

I need to purchase replacement knives for my DeWalt 734. Considering Infinity or Global Tooling (1/2 the price of Infinity). Need feed back from anyone who has purchased knives from either one of these companies. Or if you have other sources would like that information. Thanks.
