The Nightstands Build #6: Fixing some mistakes with Inlay - Part 1 of 2

02-16-2011 04:37 PM by Eric_S | 2 comments »

I’ve finally decided to get back to finishing the nightstands that have been going on for over a year now. They are very close to being finished. Once I finish this inlay hopefully by next week, all thats left is final sanding and then waiting for it to warm up a bit to apply my finish which in itself could take a while. Speaking of the finish, I’d like to take a second to thank Charles Neil for taking time to e-mail me a few times and help me out with finishing questions and s...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #2: Item One - Shop Space

02-16-2011 04:00 PM by billb | 5 comments »

Let’s start with item number one, what to use for shop space. Obviously, the best thing would be if you owned a shop space such as your garage or some other out building. This would certainly be less costly than renting even a small space. However, it may not be viable in a subdivision with deed restrictions, where you may not be able to conduct any business from your home. Or, it is possible that there are noise restrictions precluding the use of woodworking machines. Check all that ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #258: Keeping Things Organized

02-16-2011 02:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I got a large amount of work done yesterday, although it isn’t very exciting to write (or read) about. In preparation for my back up, I wanted to organize my computer and get everything where it belongs. I do this every month or so, but when I am really doing a lot of work it is very easy to have lots of files out of place. The biggest culprit is my “New Pictures” file. This is where I initially collect my reference photos for drawing. I usually use several photos at ...

Shipyard Memories #14: Cold Molded Planking

02-16-2011 07:43 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

I have to apologize for my lack of a lot of photos of this stage. I guess it just seemed to boring to take a lot of photos at the time. Anyway there are enough to give you the general idea. The first layer in this style of cold molding is applied on a diagonal as shown below. The exact angle is found by making several trial bends in different parts of the hull. The one that allows the easiest bends in the greatest number of places is the one to choose, if that makes any sense. This layer i...

Workbench #5: Check Please

02-16-2011 07:30 AM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

I now have essentially all the wood for the bench, at least the major pieces. I still lack a chop for the leg vise and I am not sure what I want to use for that. The legs have been hanging out for over 6 months and everything else has been around for about 2 months so far. Everything is construction grade Douglas Fir from Home Depot and Lowes. It actually took me a while to gather up all the wood and I feel like I visited just about every store in the Los Angeles area. 1st of all, most...

First of four pens

02-16-2011 07:23 AM by HughReeves | 2 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks! Brand new to the community, but I have really gotten the woodworking bug bad! I guess since it all sort of snowballed after watching a pen turning how-to at Woodcraft, it is only appropriate that a pen be my first project post here. After giving everyone in my family and my wife’s family a custom pen for Christmas (around 15 people), my wife’s step-dad actually “commissioned” a set of four pens to give to his boss that is retiring. A little nerve-wr...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #9: Milling and final dimensioning!

02-16-2011 06:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well today is day 3, the halfway day again! It was a great day today, managed to fix the error I’d made last day by just swapping two pieces so I’m happy about that. I was concerned that my boards may have twisted between classes but the wood must be well and truly dry and acclimatized and I guess there was not too much stress in the boards so far so good. Managed to final dimension all of the pieces (about 12 of them) and just began figuring out the mortise and tenon joints o...
