River Bend Windsor Chair Kit

01-07-2011 08:24 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 14 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Several months ago, my friends at the Woodwerks Supply in Ohio sent me one of their new River Bend Windsor Chair Kits. To be honest, I was just excited to be able to make a chair for my mom. I knew she would love the style and comfort of a Windsor and I have never even thought about making one. I thought the project would be similar to buying a piece of “furniture” from IKEA. A little glue, a few dowel...

great craigslist surprises.

01-07-2011 08:24 PM by joshtank | 4 comments »

so a few days ago i posted about a dust collector i saw on craigslist. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23206 despite having a relatively small shop space, i felt like getting one was a (literally) healthy move on my part, plus it’s something i can grow into with new tool purchases etc. and less time sweeping means more time for projects! anyway, i went to this guys house, got talking, and we settled on $150 for the DC with assorted ducts and gates etc. i mention i only have a few to...

Platform Bed #3: Continuing in SketchUp

01-07-2011 08:19 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

Apparently I’ve got the itch to get this thing well and designed, so I’ve spent a good bit of time since yesterday in SketchUp working out some details – mainly with the drawers. Attached are some more images that show where I’m at. The materials shown were chosen really quickly just to give the model some more texture and I added in a figure to give a better idea of scale. I hope the exploded view gives a clearer idea of the my next challenge, which is to figure ou...

One thing that I found in Switzerland was that there was no limit to the imagination as to what a door or doorway was to look like.

French Fry Friday #4: Murphy bed legs

01-07-2011 03:47 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

French Fry Friday is when I put a focus on those smaller accessories. This week I’m turning my attention to some small legs that I added to a recent murphy bed. I’ll write about the bed at a later day seeing that I’m about a month behind on posting projects, but I wanted to show off it’s legs. This project was one that was going to a bed and breakfast. They planned on using the bed in the down position and keeping it that way until the space was needed for an event. The then would rais...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #218: Making Lemonade from a Snowflake

01-07-2011 02:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Physically, nothing at all has really changed. Only the way we look at it. This is an incredible power that we all have within ourselves. It costs nothing, takes none of our time and all we need to do is consciously apply it and it can make al...

have your son call every radio and tv station to notify them of his trip to the emergency room. I am sure they would be very willing to get in on such a big story. I am sure everyone on here would support you with calls to the hospital, news or whoever it takes. Me, my dad and my son are all vets. It would be so much better if we were welfare recipients, we would get much better care.
