The new girl - Dana enters our shop! #2: How I got to meet her parents ...

11-29-2010 08:07 PM by Eric M. Saperstein | 8 comments »

So this is wood related – but spins to the personal story … I think it fits once you read through it’ll make sense! I’m really curious how the comments and feedback will go on this one!? Periodically I will allude to the fact that my life is often a sitcom – things happen that there’s no way I could script out or make up. I think Alice Cooper described his need to retire because he simply couldn’t compete with reality anymore in terms of strange and shocking events....

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #3: Sketch of chair

11-29-2010 07:39 PM by bues0022 | 6 comments »

As promised, here is my VERY rough sketch of what I envision the chair ending up looking like. I essentially took an image I found online of a maple rocker, and colored it to my liking. Dark represents walnut, light represents spalted maple. As you can see most of the chair is walnut. Rockers are laminated walnut/maple. Headrest has a center maple section, flanked by walnut. It’s tough to see, but the joints at the seat will have a detail of maple. I’m also thinking of m...

Made a mod to the sled

11-29-2010 07:38 PM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I was looking at the design of the handle on my crosscut sled and decided that it just didn’t look right. I also incorporated some finger guards. I didn’t want to scrap the handle all together so I cut it down a bit and attached it to the finger guards. Here is how it turned out; I attached the finger guard to the front fence with some screws. I did not glue the finger guard assembly to the fence, this allows me to remove the guard in the event that I need or want to a...

Well I already posted a Midsize Blog post on my Blog and I thought I’d post the link here for everyone to check out. I’m starting to get into Hand Tools, at least some that I can properly use or try to use anyway. Being Disabled has SOME Disadvantaged but not alot lol. And as it goes right now, I got 4 Handplanes and I’ve not really used them cause I don’t have a Bench in my Workshop just yet, other things are on my To Do List at the moment before I can Build a ...

New WoodWorking Bench #2: Material chosen

11-29-2010 03:58 PM by ray6576 | 0 comments »

I have decided on using LVL lumber for the bench top and 2×12’s for the support structure. I had to take a couple of weeks off while I decided on a new planner since my Delta gave up on me. I have purchased a Dewalt 13 inch with 3 blades (model 735 I think), it does a great job. I have now glued up the blanks for the legs and supports and brought them down to finished dimensions. I will start layout work today. I will take some pictures of my progress and post tonight.

Puppet Theater #2: Constructing the Frame and Panels

11-29-2010 03:07 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

Birdseye Maple on Cherry The design for the top panel calls for birdseye maple. It seemed a shame to use my only piece of birdseye maple up on just one project. I decided to resaw the board. A few passes through my old Grizzly G1066 sander later and I had a beautiful 3/32” sheet of birdseye maple veneer. Because this is going to be used for a raised panel, I had to decide on the substrate. One technique I’d seen and had always wanted to try was using a different species substra...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #179: I Am Right Where I Want to Be

11-29-2010 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I did finish the drawings for the nativity candle tray, but it took me much more time than I anticipated. That’s OK though, because I am happy with the outcome. It just goes with the territory. I had planned on drawing until about noon or so – give or take. But at that point although I had the design done, I still wasn’t quite happy with it. I wanted to keep it simple, but I didn’t want it too simple. Sometimes it is hard to fi...

1st blog

blogs…..this would be my first ever(I don’t do facebook/4square/myspace or twitter). I don’t really have any projects completed or forthcoming. I just figured this would be a good place to put into words random thoughts/ideas or what have you that pops into my head, since the coffee shop closed. So welcome to my world, more to follow…..................................................................

The new girl - Dana enters our shop! #1: We have a new shop girl ...

11-29-2010 07:05 AM by Eric M. Saperstein | 23 comments »

So – some of you have put me on your buddy list and have followed some of the saga (sitcom) of my life. Others have no clue what the history is and probably don’t care. I’ll give a quick background just to set the background plot for the story. I was engaged, that took it’s turn towards dissolving last summer. So where possible I’ve cleaned out most of the stories and pictures involving my ex. Unfortunately in newsletters that’s just history, it’s ...

A few days ago I cleared off the lower shelf on my saw to take some pictures for planning. The Shop Kitty immediately began supervising.
