Grandma's Picture Frame #4: Profiles

02-18-2011 04:44 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

I have finally finished cutting the frame profiles. I decided to make a bunch of small frames, rather than just one. I really like framing, but boy am I dreading the mitering and glue up! But before getting into the mitering (next blog entry), I wanted to show off some of the profiles. The first two pictures are of the frame I took from the plans on the American Woodworker website. I really enjoyed doing that one. I already tried once on a cove frame I cut, a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #260: What an Incredible Day!

02-18-2011 03:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After yesterday’s rocky start, you would think that the day was going to be heading in a downhill direction. Not so, I say! The little hiccup here at LJ’s came and went so quickly that most people probably didn’t even notice it. With nearly 25,000 accounts to maintain here, I think that they do an outstanding job. In thinking about it and adding up the numbers, just think of all the pictures, projects and comments that all 25,000 of us post in a single day. It is simp...

How Did Sam Maloof's Rocker Inspire Us with That First Glance?

02-18-2011 03:08 PM by Charles Brock | 2 comments »

What makes Sam Maloof’s work so attractive at first glance? When I saw my first picture of his rocker in the old 1983 article in Fine Woodworking, What jumped out at me and said, “Wow”? What inspired all that has been said and done by woodworkers and lovers of fine furniture based on that initial look at his rocker? Maloof was a master woodworker, designer, finisher, personality and other things wonderful but my thought is to capture all of us so totally with that first g...

Workshop Addition: Jet AFS-1000B Air Cleaner

02-18-2011 03:03 PM by jm64 | 13 comments »

Dust collection in my shop is limited to my shop vac set up with a hepa filter. If I need to do anything that kicks up a lot of dust, I roll the tools out in the yard and work there. There are a few operations that aren’t convenient to do outside. First, my Mitre Saw is most easily used in place. I use a controller to turn on the vac when I’m using the saw. It collects some of the dust but a lot of it goes all over. Also, when I’m sanding a project between coats of f...

How I made my Intersected cutting board

02-18-2011 08:54 AM by GaryK | 34 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #10: Can you cheat on a router plane?

02-18-2011 06:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...

Cherry bookcase

02-18-2011 06:16 AM by umbach | 6 comments »

Well, my bookcase is nearing completion. I’m pleased with most of it thus far. This was my first go round with hand cutting all the mortise and tenon joints and they are all fairly decent. My hand tool skill and knowledge is really improving thanks to The Hand Tool School by Shannon Rogers. Sadly, my basement is a tad cool and the stain didn’t dry over night. So in went the portable heater all day to help the drying process along. Hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be applying th...

Thanks Dad.

02-18-2011 06:05 AM by Shawn K. | 8 comments »

This could start as a tool gloat, and really should be, but will eventually become a project. Because I can’t seem to write briefly, succinctly, or other synonyms for short, I’ll just go with it. I’ve mentioned before that my father was the one who inspired me to woodworking. It was something he did to either save money, to make money with restored antiques, or to repair things around the house with a bit of flair thrown in for good measure. Over the years he collect...
