My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #90: Losing LJ's For A Bit Really Made Me Appreciate it Even More

09-01-2010 01:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

All I can say is that I had enough of summer. I know, I know. You can all get your rotten cabbages and tomatoes to throw at me! I shouldn’t really complain because I know many people have it much worse, but the last couple of days have really been uncomfortable. I won’t go into a rant, but I just want to say that I can’t wait for autumn to be here. Yesterday when I went on my walk, I noticed for the first time that the leaves are beginning to start to blush on a few tr...

Chess Board

09-01-2010 08:30 AM by lizardhead | 2 comments »

I had a 2×2 inch piece of wenge and cut the end off to see what it looked like fresh cut, it was only about a 1/4” piece then I sanded it to see how much of a shine I could put on it. As I looked at it and played with it I thought that I might be able to make a chess board, so I am.

Tool Gloat - My First Jointer

09-01-2010 04:26 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

Sunday, I saw a listing in Craigs List for a 6” jointer for $100. I thought why not take a look and sent a reply. I got a response back in short order stating that he had 2 others in line in front of me to take a look and if they fell through, he’d give me the next crack. I figured it was gone and I’d have to resume my patient vigil. Well, I was surprised and today I brought it home. It has new blades and a new drive belt. The bed and fench are free of rust but looks like...

Surfacing panels with a Router.

09-01-2010 03:57 AM by Bearpaw | 7 comments »

I am in the process of building two end tables for my youngest daughter that just married. The project is built from soft maple and each table requires three panels for the top and shelves. I edged and glued the panels, but I needed to level them and make the shelf panels 5/8” thick. These panels are about 15” x 22 1/2”. I am not that good with hand planes, have a thickness planer that large or the time. So like most of my projects, I have to build a jig. First, I made a ...

Workbench #2: Trestle components

09-01-2010 03:47 AM by twobyfour16 | 5 comments »

Quick update on the workbench. I laminated up the rest of my thin stock into the trestle components. 2 trestle feet & 2 tresle top members plus 4 trestle legs. I haven’t figured out what to do with the stretchers yet, but am considering a different colored hardwood (Mahogany / walnut?) So, although the progress is slow, I am having fun learning about laminating, milling to size, etc. I just ordered the 2 vises from Lee Valley. Although I was originally going ...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #9: Taking Back What I Said, and An Experiment

09-01-2010 01:39 AM by Mark Colan | 7 comments »

Taking Back What I Said Mark Mueller disagrees with my statement (in Part 8, Conclusions for Phase I) that “re-zeroing the fence will be required any time the positioner base unit is moved.” He points out that the fixed stops (against which the base is positioned) make re-zeroing unnecessary, and he may well be right (he should know). I will revisit this subject later, after doing some experiments to learn the truth. An Experiment I want to make a new extension table me...

The Studio Furniture Movement #2

09-01-2010 12:50 AM by DocSavage45 | 5 comments »

Just found “Art for Everyday by Patricia Conway 1990. She has done an excellent job of exploring furniture as functional art. Furniture has always served as functional. the Arts and Crafts movement had a big effect on putting the man/person back into the equation. architechs like Wright, designed furniture to be part of the art of his designs. Beautiful pieces that are not very comfortable to sit in. The Arts and Crafts movement ended in 1919. The Bau Haus inspired new ideas in fur...
