Hello All, I did some woodworking, a bit of creative writing, and ended up with a blog post which is a B-. http://su.pr/2wPGZs Thanks, Brian
Did not post this as a project although it IS a woodworking finished project – yet not made by me. I got a little package in the mail yesterday, and inside was awaiting quietly this little gem: made and sent to me by none other than LJ blackcherry Thank you very much Wilson! This will be allocated to my tool cabinet and shall be put to use often. My main uses for this would be to wax my handplanes metal bodies and soles after use to keep it from developing surface rust (used T9...
Carved up my kanga for the Torque work cabinet. Needs a bit of hand sanding yet.I bought this wood some time ago and for the life of me I can’t remember what kind it is.Splashed it with a bit of MS to see the grain and color.Will finish with satin poly an glue him to the side of my cabinet. I am ready to take on the shoe !! Thanks for looking,Critiques welcome as this is a first carving, and I am not sure if it looks right, Lisa
a dry fit ! Let’s start with today’s inspiration: a peanut butter cookie, half of which was dipped in chocolate. Uh. Yum ! The “not-so-secret” secret drawer ;-) It’s got feet ! A shelf…. The top…. Got some band saw work, ahead of me, to cut out the fake tenons and wedges. Soon, though. Very soon. Thanks for looking :-)
Anyone have any info on the HF 6” Jointer? there is a used one for sale locally for 100 bucks and just don’t know enough about them – this would be my first jointer. I know there are many good reviews about the HF dust collectors, but this may be a different story all together. Any help is appreciated!Tom
Well, well, it’s only been twenty hours since I put this challenge to the Lumberjocks and who woulda thunk it but closet doors are open and the shoes are flying, trying to select the one most appropriate for this challenge. And in true form, the Lumberjocks are abuzz to each other, offering wood, links to tool websites and mustering up all the courage they can to be included in a task that might seem beyond their capabilities. Well done friends, you are not alone. At this fine ho...
My first dovetails… Yes I’m a child to post this, it’s like to say look daddy I can pee myself, but really I’m happy!I do not know why, but the dovetails, has been a hurtle, one of those I thoughts I would never get over.Why? I do not know, probably because I connect this with all the masters of woodworking, and me… just little me, how can I ever get there! So I have been buying books, tools and reading like a crazy to solve this little wonder ‘the dovet...
This is one of the final parts I needed modeled up before getting serious about starting my table saw cabinet design. Obviously, it will include a router.
I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong. The frame clamping strap from woodcraft for $1.75 works great!! :) I also applied some danish oil on half of a scrap piece and there is a...
