My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #305: Back in Saratoga Springs

04-06-2011 03:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Hi, everybody! We drove most of Monday and half a day today and are back in the Albany/Saratoga Springs area. We arrived here around 1pm and had a nice lunch at Olive Garden restaurant. I haven’t eaten there in ages and love their soup. We then took the afternoon to go through the large shopping mall nearby and just bummed around a bit. It was the first time we really had some slow time since we left two weeks ago and we just enjoyed it. It rained pretty hard all day yesterday...

Oak Dresser Restoration #2: Finished at last!

04-06-2011 02:33 AM by Mark D. | 2 comments »

So after spending 820 days working 26 hours a day, 8 days a week on restoring this dresser it’s finally DONE! Ok, so it certainly was not a priority project and got very sporadic time devoted to it over the last 2 years but what a chore it was… I think it’s far easier to build something from scratch than to restore an older piece. As you can see from the first couple of pictures, there is a slight cup in the top which wasn’t able to be straightened out and you can s...

Building My Entertainment Center #3: The top has been glued up and drawer and doors making progress

04-06-2011 01:40 AM by Ken90712 | 9 comments »

Well things kind of slowed down for me this past week. I have been on day shift going to Advanced Avionics for our company, to brush up on trouble-shooting problems on our Aircraft. I really prefer graveyard shift and getting off at 11am. Although I know, the hours in the day are the same. It seems I achieve so much more work getting off at 11am, than getting home at 3pm. My last blog, I asked for help and advice on if I should do a natural edge on the back as well. Well thank-you e...

What is your favorite wood to work with? Why?

04-06-2011 12:09 AM by reggiek | 25 comments »

This weekend I was able spent some time discussing wood types and benefits with an Arboriculturist and tree biology expert . It was most enlightening. We discussed fibre content, strength and growth characteristics. We discussed color and grain. We discussed ages of trees, sustainability and wood ratings. I was amazed at all the science involved. Anyway, I thought this might be an interesting area to discuss. Perhaps learn something new or interesting about different woods and thei...

Update on Mich. Lumberjock Gathering

04-05-2011 10:28 PM by jockmike2 | 22 comments »

I received a call this morning from Keith July, he was going to try and get us a free space for our gathering and has done so at the JOHNSON’S WORKBENCH in Charlotte. It is almost centrally located in Michigan. JOhNSON”S has offered us one of their warehouses to meet in. They have tables and a grill/ So if it is OK with everyone we thought we would make some dogs and hamburgers on the grill and maybe the wives could whip up a dish. Since this is a meeting place for the MID MICHIG...

Hi. We rent and built-in wardrobe space can never be relied upon to be there. Its not at our present house. We’ve been using hanging rails for some time now, dust is an issue. So I was playing with the CAD on my p.c. and came up with this. Its a (semi) mobile system that closes, like any good box. Bit like an old steamer trunk but 4’ x 6’ x 2’ Either that or it can be used open. Materials? I initially though cheap and cheerful pine and chipboard. Don’t know. What...

Adding leg levelers and casters to a table

04-05-2011 08:51 PM by Bhaupt | 3 comments »

The objective here is to have 1 1/2” of leveling adjustability as well as being able to transport table on casters. The way I decided to do this was to have ladder casters extend downward with toggle clamps during transit. For the smaller tables I used 5/16 rods attached to a 2” wheel. For the 800# table I used 3/4” x 4” lg. ss standoffs for the ladder portion attaching to dual 2” casters. I needed to provide laterial support for the ladder/standoff...
