I have written about this before, and I probably will again. I once again participated in an ornament exchange that was set up by the scrollers on Steve Good’s forum. It is an event that I look forward to every year, as it gives me a chance to experience not only the work of other scrollers, but also enjoy the friendship and sharing that it entails. I love exchanges. I think that it is a great way to learn about fellow crafts people and own a little piece of something created by the...
Creating custom intarsia woodworking often finds its best design from a story. One stormy day in April, not very different from any other day, tragedy struck in Alabama. My father was out for the morning working as usual. He decided to come home early because there were some reports that bad weather was coming. He could not have gotten home at any better of a time. As he pulled into the driveway, he had just enough time to find his wife, grab a few neighbors, and get into the panic room i...
Hello and thanks for the many welcomes. I’m an advanced novice working on the floor of the ‘garage’ with a lousy table saw, PC router, hand saw and various straight guides. I just got a thickness plane & jointer through CL for 250 – I’m so excited. The manual for the jointer was updated in 1954, No more warped Home Depot wood. I just made 5 – 7’ x 32” bookcases and they came out pretty good, but I’m never satisfied with the trim I ...
Well, it has been a long few months, but I’ve finally managed to clear some more space out in the shop and get things re-organized. It can be quite frustrating when you’re working on the shop itself, and not on actual projects in wood, but sometimes quite refreshing. I think I’ve gotten to the point where I want to put my hands back onto some wood, so I’ll be going through some of the projects that I’ve been sitting on, and get back into creating. In the mea...
Well,A few month ago I learned that I’m going to be a dad. Like many others here, I decided to build a crib. I’m a little worried that I won’t finish everything in time, but I’m doing the best I can. I just finished painting the room today, so hopefully I can work on the crib a bit tomorrow afternoon. I took a couple pictures of where I stand right now. I am doing some dry fitting so the lacewood already has an amber shellac finish (floating panel) and the walnu...
This is nothing spectacular. I was tired of walking across the room to my wall rack for clamps. I don’t have enough room for a mobile clamp rack. One day I saw a dozen clamps on the shelf beneath my bench after I had removed them from a glue job. I though, why not keep an assortment of clamps here at the bench and let the others stay on the wall. Most of the time I only need a few clamps at a time anyway. The result was a simple square shaft from one end of the bench to the other as...
Well the street side of the property is completely fenced off. I think it came out good for not being a fence maker. Now I need to do a gate, a small side yard section and another entire length up against the neighbors yard (my foreclosed home :^( ). That section needs to be designed differently and won’t have the lattice for privacy issues. It will also be taller. ~71”. 72” requires a permit. Suckers. LOL. It will be coming off of the section I already did, so I am go...
I am pretty psyched how this is coming along. This week I started shaping the base. I used a band saw with 76 degree bevel and used a belt sander with table angled at the same bevel to clean the edge. Scribing the line an inch inside the oval for spindle placement, took more time expected. This week I will scoop out the center and contour the edges.
