Local County Fair

1826 days ago by Greg3G | 9 comments »

Its been a pretty good summer….but not a lot of shop time. I have been spending a lot of time fishing this year, for some reason, just hadn’t the desire for the shop. Well, to make a long story short, I didn’t go to TN this month so I entered a few items in the local county fair. I am pretty pleased with the results. My Sapele side table – Blue ribbon My Walnut and Maple Jewelry box – Blue ribbon Small cutting board/Trivet – red ribbon Purple Hea...

Live Shop Cameras and Woodshop New

1826 days ago by Chris Davis | 6 comments »

Woodshop News, a trade magazine called with some interest in my live video feed a couple months ago. I just checked and their digital version of their magazine and the story was posted on their website. It is a short but to the point article about the camera system and how it is used for both marketing and with customer relations. Check it out at Woodshop News . Get a peek into my shop at wwbeds.com<div></div>

Desk build #2: Nurses desk: Tapered Legs and mortises

1826 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Jacaranda natural edge end grain goblet

1826 days ago by Gary Fixler | 16 comments »

Two weeks ago, on a whim, I got home after work, sliced off a piece of smaller branch from my large pile of smaller Jacaranda branches (~2.5”-3” dia.), and turned a bark-rimmed goblet. Sorry for the gratuitous lighting :) Let’s fly into it… The inside is smooth, and today, 15 days of air-drying on my dining room table later, it still has no checks, even around the pith inside, or on the bottom of the base! Here’s my hand for some b...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #4: Sides...

1826 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

I sanded the appropriate parts of the parts (don’t sand anything that mates with another part, it will round the edge over and ruin the joint). I then clamped up two sides at a time (because I only have enough clamps for one project). Then, I cut all the rabbets and dadoes in the sides to accept the drawer/shelf. I also plugged the dado on the legs. The next step is to make the mortises for the cross-pieces. Thoughts: address chip-out (tape, backer board, etc.), better edge trea...
