Kitchen Island Project #5: Doors are installed

07-05-2009 07:07 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

The cabinet doors are now installed. I’ve got to say I love those Blum (European) Hinges. In this case I have inset doors so the gap around the doors is really finicky. The slightest deviation stands out like a K-Mart blue tag special that has a flashing light saying “He screwed up look here!” With the Blum Hingest you can quite literally “dial in” the desired gap and face depth. I also like the fact that the hinges are invisible when the door is closed. The trad...

The Traveling Lumberjock #3: July 21, 2010 - Richmond, VA

07-29-2010 05:42 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 3 comments »

So it was off to Virginia last week. I’ve been going to Richmond pretty regularly for four to five years now and I really enjoy the area. It’s beautiful, there’s a ton of historical stuff in the area, and of course now that I’m visiting sawmills and lumberjocks, there’s no shortage of wood and sawdust themed adventures. This was something of a short notice trip, so I didn’t have much chance to plan visits or scope folks with portable sawmills. Oddly e...

mini roubo #2: progress pics to date

03-14-2012 05:20 PM by kaaahl | 3 comments »

I thought I would just catch up on some pics of my progress so far. In the back of my mind, I am hoping to build a workbench that will last for 100 years—something solid and substantial. At the same time, I am doing it on a grad school budget. So those two things are mostly incompatible but we will see how close we get. This is my first time building a project with hardwood and the first workbench I have ever built. I am building it for my father for a belated Christmas gift (I couldn&#...

Starting My Business #8: Well, I have done it Now!

04-22-2012 05:25 AM by ChrisCrafts | 3 comments »

As I have ventured into this life after 20 years in the Corporate World I have found myself drawn in a certain direction. The more I work with wood the more my creative juices flow. I initially started with the idea of making small handcrafted items that would be popular at a Christmas Bazaar or a Charity Auction. Much of this hasn’t kept my interest. Turning has been fun and that is something I will continue to do. But, still, I have all these ideas in my head for furniture I would lov...

Hello everyone. As a new member, I just wanted to introduce myself. I have been woodworking off and on since high school, so about 30 years. Nothing too serious because I spent 21 years in the Air Force, moving around, and was never able to set up shop. Over the past couple of years, I finally started putting a small shop together in my garage. I have been doing some pen making, and other fun projects. My next project is going to be a cradle for my first grandbaby who is due in Sep. So...

Workbench Build #16: New Crank Handles...

02-27-2013 12:50 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

After finishing up one of the hand cranks for the Moxon vise I realized that the poor excuse of a turning I did on my leg vise crank handle just wasn’t going to cut it. So after that revelation I scrounged up some scraps of Padauk and Oak and started piecing together a segmented stackup that would become my new crank handles for both the leg and wagon vises. Once the glue was set on those I cut different sized plugs out with my hole saw set which works out nicely b...
