Music Stand III #4: Music Stand Design IV

09-25-2010 11:02 PM by Alan Young | 5 comments »

Well it has been way too long since I posted progress on my Music Stand. I am finished with the stand and in fact completed a second one as well. The second stand came about as a friend saw progress on the first stand and requested a modified design. I have yet to take decent finished shots and will probably do that this weekend. I want to share some of the personal story behind the commissioning of the stand. I was in college in the late 70’s early 80’s. I was a music major and s...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #7: Stephen - The Little Sledding Boy

09-25-2010 06:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Stephen loves sledding. Although he tried his best at ice skating, for some reason he wound up slidng on his bottom more than gliding on his skates. Last Christmas Santa brought his a beautiful red sled. Stephen was thrilled! He couldn’t wait to pull that sled up the highest hill in town and come soaring back down. Now THIS was fun! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures No more skinny blades for him! He is riding in style from now on!

128 - Shellac Under Polyurethane?

09-25-2010 06:27 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 14 comments »

I have heard countless times that you should never put polyurethane over waxed shellac. From books to magazine articles to forums to DVD’s, the message is always the same. Even the back of the shellac can itself says not to use polyurethane. Now I have always taken the “better safe than sorry” route, simply avoiding regular waxed shellac. But there have been so many occasions where I have heard of people accidentally using waxed shellac under polyurethane with no det...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #3: The Curriculum

09-25-2010 05:34 PM by Jordan | 15 comments »

As I’ve never taught by correspondence before, I’m having to figure out guidelines as how best to do this to suit everyone involved. With 5 different countries and many different time zones (ain’t that amazing in itself?!) questions and such could get quite overwhelming if this isn’t systematic. So I thought it would be most appropriate to break down all of the sections into separate blogs, even if that section only requires a short time to complete. Therefore, 1, 2...

night table

09-25-2010 04:48 PM by dub560 | 0 comments »

i decided to make a nite table with the scraps that i had remaining from the dresser project. i had some problems tapering on the table saw though—i don’t know why but for some reason it never comes out good—the plunge saw saved the day though. yeah, anyway i had some poplar, 1/2 and 1 piece of 3/4 (small piece)plywood laying around and thought i’d make something of it. right now i’m at the point of tinkering with the drawers to get a perfect fit—sin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #114: Looking Ahead

09-25-2010 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is just another one of those days when I can’t wait to get up. There are so many wonderful and exciting things to do that my head can’t fall back asleep! It is quiet here and still quite dark out. I opened the window just a bit more and threw a light blanket over my lap so I can feel the cool air of the morning. You can barely smell that someone in the distance has a fire going, but it mostly smells like autumn. By that I mean it smells like the woods on a cool day. The sc...

A Beginner's Thoughts #2: Leaning back...

09-25-2010 04:59 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

it’s been a while since I’ve been here but a lot has happened. After all my thought process and decisions to go ‘power’, I’m now leaning back towards just hand tools. I got the 15” planer I was looking into and have used it a few times, along with the 6” Jointer and TS. Man those things create a lot of wood chips and dust! Which is one of the reasons I’m leaning back. I don’t have a dust collection system and don’t really want o...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

09-25-2010 01:57 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...
