Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #16: The Chrochete

01-12-2010 02:43 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

Ok sorry this took so long… The Crochet is really what it sounds like if you ever looked or have your self knitted… a Crochet hook is a comma fused to a needle, Another use Ive see for it is to reverse it and use it to disgorge hooks for fishing. Using the down force of the “comma” to free the fishing hook, then as the hook is released, the comma holds it hidden so it can be guided out without hurting the fish. Anyway on my table, its a comma that is fastened t...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #10: Make Like a Tree & Leaves

01-12-2010 02:19 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to successfully refinish my boo boos on the breadboard ends. I also sanded the leaves and finished them at the same time. The ends had a bit more stain to start with (from the previous finish), but they both came out looking great. I’m really glad I learned my lesson on shellac. BTW, it did a bit of redistributing of the aniline dye, so I had to quickly blend/tip it before it got tacky. I missed a couple of spots on one leaf but was able to blend it in with the gel stain...

Figured I'd sign up...

01-12-2010 01:10 AM by mckenziedrums | 6 comments »

I’m TERRIBLE… and I mean TERRIBLE and keeping up with blogs, etc. However I figured since I finally caved and registered over here I’d go ahead and use this site to its full potential. Current projects include a linen closet for the wife (Spaced and drilled WAY too many pocket holes for this one… oops!), finishing a 26” diameter bass drum for a friend, airbrushing and finishing another snare for a christian rock band member, and at some point I need to make a ...

Shaker Night Stand #8: Walls are up

01-11-2010 11:31 PM by NBeener | 14 comments »

Two good days in the wood shop. Sadly, the night stand plans call for a pretty big chunk to be taken out of the top of two of the 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” square legs. TWICE, this has caused the wood to split when tapping in a well-fitting tenon. I’ve had to re-make the legs, re-cut the mortises, re-do the chamfers, etc. I’m moving forward, this time, under the assumption that it won’t create a strength problem. So … here’s where I am. In this pi...

Dont know what to call it

01-11-2010 08:04 PM by Moron | 9 comments »

I collect what some might think is crap/junk so with a little spare time I made this. Having Americans in my family and American roots from way back in 1776 I thought I would do a sign? with the stars and stripes the back is a small 16” wide x 2’ chunk of old growth pine, the birdhouse is even older, the sheeps skull I got from a farmer and it was attached to the carcass,in a load of manure (freaking dogs made a meal of it…...worst nightmare for the wife) so I put the ...

new window

01-11-2010 07:49 PM by Moron | 9 comments »

When I built my shop, like so many others, I simply ran out of money to do everything I wanted like windows. I wound up making 3 windows, all very small and framed in the hole but now I broke the nbank and bought one window…....4 to go. I love the view > now my outlaws cant sneak up an me, I can see who’s coming >

Ripped pants

01-11-2010 05:38 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Ahhh, the holiday season is over and work can continue at a more normal pace (whatever that is) and I can’t help but reflect on a dilemma I run into every holiday and gift giving event day…the subject of clothes. I get a request every now and again for a list of items I need for birthdays and holidays. Of course the answer is always “tools” and the requester will receive catalogs and links to online resources with the items I have on my “to buy” list clearl...

Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

01-11-2010 05:32 PM by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...
