coopered top tool box

10-03-2010 03:25 PM by mdj | 2 comments »

Hello all. My first post here, and somehow I was able to review some earlier posts (about a yr old) concerning a coopered top tool box. Now of course, I cant find my way back to the discussion. Would anyone have a clue if there are any plans available for the box or similiar to the one shown in the Toolbox Book by Jim Toplin, built by Mark Nels of Atlanta?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #122: Building a Bridge 2

10-03-2010 03:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

”We build too many walls and not enough bridges” – Isaac Newton I had a lot of fun yesterday. I finished my little bridge and even though I had made one previously that went to the magazine, I had learned some things on this site that made the glue up much easier and it went together like clockwork. It was only a couple of months ago when I struggled to make the first one, and it made me feel good to think that I learned so much in such a short time. It went together so...

Shoe Carving Challenge #2: Carving & Perfectionism

10-03-2010 12:35 PM by MsDebbieP | 47 comments »

Oct. 3/10 The journey with the shoe carving is continuing – and my block of wood, at this point, still looks like a shoe! This is good. But I was reminded of a very important component of carving, when a fellow student, TJ65, posted this update: My head hurts real bad. :-(It’s hot to touch too, I think it has been whirring away for way too long concentrating on getting the pattern of the sole drawn up. (Maybe I shuda went for an easier shoe!)I didn’t realise that you really hav...

Woodworking T.V. shows I'd like to see

10-03-2010 06:40 AM by Stevinmarin | 9 comments »

Part 2 of my article on woodworking shows. —————————— Television money guys need to understand that woodworking is quite popular and that they could actually make money producing a woodworking show. But first, we need to scrap every preconceived notion we have about woodworking shows. Start from scratch and look at them as entertainment first, education a distant second.

Computer Desk #4: Video of knotwork filling

10-03-2010 05:05 AM by Scott G. | 1 comment »

I filled in the knotwork with plaster. I did this after I sanded the inlay for the axes flush. I’m putting this here, because when I added it to the #3 entry, it messed up all the pictures that came after it. MUTE YOUR VOLUME!!! It’s really loud. Or at least it can be. !! I'm guessing now that I should have waited to sand down the desktop =AFTER= filling this in. It was another round of 150-180 to get it flush. And that was after taking the hand sander to it to simp...

Computer Desk #3: An update

10-03-2010 05:03 AM by Scott G. | 0 comments »

So, it’s been awhile. I’ve had a computer crash, a phone crash, and a camera failure. Tablesaw sputtered and died, yeah, it’s been a tough two months. But I’m back, and here we go! We left off, I was still working on the knotwork and axe inlays. Without further ado; pictures! First, the construction of the file drawer rolly. Frame up. Drawers Adding drawer faces. Finished! And they work! I’d left about 3/32” space betw...

10-03-2010 02:26 AM by prez | 4 comments »

Came across some interesting wood at the Woodstock Wood show this weekend. Was admiring this really interesting design in a piece of wood when this young lady stuck her head in it and made me forget the kind of wood it was.Question of the day….what kind of wood was it…and more importantly….WHO was that nice lady?? Braggin rights to whoever guesses first! Hint…..she’s working on a really big shoe!

Im not sure how far this will go but here’s to givin it a shot …. My grandfather passed away a few years ago and in the process of cleaning out the house i stumbled across all of the old tools in the basement. Mostly mec...
