Men's Valet Golf Tournament Prizes #3: Not Satisfied

09-20-2010 01:51 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 0 comments »

Well I finished working on the box, but I am not entirely satisfied with the outcome. I will post the final pictures when I get home later for you all to see. My prototype box was built from 3/8” pine, the new box is built from 1/2” walnut, I thought the 3/8” width was pretty wide already but now with the 1/2” it just looks real blocky (if thats an actual term). If I intend to make boxes using the 1/2” thick lumber my boxes are going to need to be much larg...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #109: Hitting the Ground Running

09-20-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I did wind up taking advantage of the beautiful day yesterday and I played ‘hookie’. It was a beautiful and warm day and it was just too tempting for me to resist spending some time outside. I am looking at all the things that I have to do today however and I am certainly going to pay the price for it. Not really, but there are things that I have to get done that I need to do today and the list is a bit longer than I wanted. I know today will go by fast. We wound up going t...

Sheet Goods Rack with Clamp Storage

09-20-2010 07:45 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

Sheet goods that just sit on the floor aren’t very mobile. When I can’t move stuff around my shop, I can’t maximize the space. So I need to organize those sheets properly and get them on wheels. I designed a new Sheet Goods Rack, but I’m not 100% satisified yet. I looked online but didn’t really find what I wanted, and I can’t do the pivoting rolling rack on hinges some of you have done. Check out my design over at my blog and let me know what you thi...

A Special Unicorn Project #1: The Planning Stages

09-20-2010 05:53 AM by William | 5 comments »

I’m switching gears here and starting on a new project that just a couple days ago, wasn’t even on my radar. I mean I don’t have to even start this project right this second, but I can’t wait to get started on it. So, I decided I didn’t want to wait. I’m going to push this one to the front burner and get started on it. I’m going to be building a Rocking Unicorn. I build a lot of rocking toys. Most of what I build though, I build with no idea what is t...

I want share the proud moment I had this weekend. Our town had its annual Fair this weekend. One of the pavilions had a kids section. The local lumber yard supplied the material, pre-drilled nail holes and let the kids build their own tool box. Our little girl is 21 months old. She was thrilled. Can’t talk yet ,but was right in there helping ME !.This event took place yesterday and I am still BEAMING.

-why can't i just build a rectangular table?

09-20-2010 04:56 AM by learnin2do | 11 comments »

I need to make some money, so i am going through the pile of milled walnut to find goodies. I have so much trouble trying to build something traditional and desirable, but i am trying. I just never can true or square anything. I know it can be done with minimal tools; it must be impatience and lack of training. -or my round brain. -why can’t i just build a rectangular table?
