carving "Thunderbolt" #7: Heads Up!

01-31-2011 06:53 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I got the head finished and glued on this weekend! It turned out ok…ears may be a bit long?You may notice that the ears are slightly darker…...they were soaked with the thin CA glue after carving, to strengthen this delicate area. Pretty sturdy now. Carving is “subtractive-sculpture” in that you take away wood to create. And a lot of what you “see” is what is also the negative spaces created. The shadows that are created give depth and create ill...

Tiger Maple Pedalboard #1: rough cuts and hand dimensioning

01-31-2011 05:51 PM by markedwardsims | 3 comments »

As a long time rocker, it seemed only appropriate to marry my 2 passions when it finally came time to revamp the pedalboard. I decided to do a wedge shaped “container” with a 1/2” plexiglass board to mount the equipment on. I wanted to make this this thing a little fancy, so I chose tiger maple and plan on dying it black, and finishing with a high gloss poly to look similar to a guitar finish. The stock that I purchased is 4/4 and through the great suggestions of my fellow L...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #242: A Variety of Designs Nearly Completed

01-31-2011 03:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

The weekend was quite a blur. It seemed that just about every waking moment was spent working on the four new trays. As with most projects, it seemed to take a bit more time than I had anticipated. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. It would only be bad if they came out crummy. I am happy with the results (so far) and in the home stretch on everything. I hadn’t decided to do four additional trays for the catalog deadline until about last Tuesday either. The original dead...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #2: Kerf Setting Dado Jig from a T-track left over

01-31-2011 09:00 AM by steliart | 4 comments »

Continuing this blog on T-tracks, there is nothing that goes to waist, even the most insignificant piece, at a given moment may turn out to be gold. So, the other day I was looking into some drawers and I found a cut-off piece of t-track that I used on my router table. We all use them and most times we cut them to size to fit our dimension, as they are sold in specific lengths. So I was thinking why did I save that small 20cm long piece?And the same night as I was browsing along the wo...

Floating shelves ....continued

01-31-2011 06:04 AM by jbschutz | 0 comments »

Well, the floating shelves are done. I finished them with two coats of flat black latex paint, and then a top coat of combo varnish-walnut stain by Minwax. I was going for this new color in the furniture trade called ”espresso”, and I think I got it. We will be heading up to Son’s house to install them soon, and I will try to get a good photo to share. /Users/john/Desktop/DSC01315.JPG

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #12: Working on the Finish

01-31-2011 05:48 AM by Don | 9 comments »

The more I looked at the tops the less I liked how much lighter they were than the rest of the tables. I decided to go ahead and dye the tops according to the instructions. I’m really glad I did, the tops are blending much better and I’m really liking the way dye looks compared to stains. I may even dye the rest of the table to get it all to blend together better. I normally love the varience of colors in wood when it’s finished naturally but in this case I think it distract...

Shop Layout Planning....at last I have the space but working on ideas

01-31-2011 05:36 AM by CobraDriver | 9 comments »

Well I have a nice size building that just needs to get organized and planned out properly. We just bought this place and decisions, decisions. For the first time in my life I’m spoiled, I have alot of space and now I don’t know what to do with it!. The machines are few as of yet, a Shop Smith 510 sort of :) with bandsaw, a router table and combo sander. To keep the place clean I have a Jet 1100. Picked it up quite nicely from a fella upgrading to a monster system and sold ...
