Embracing woodworking

01-02-2011 10:30 PM by FreddyS | 9 comments »

I guess it all started back in the day when my now late father taught me, by letting me do things by myself at a young age, to always dig deep to find a solution for any task at hand no matter how hard it seemed, this got stuck really well on me I think, and sometimes to the point of obsession I’m afraid hehee. To be honest, it has been a source of some troubles, but mostly it is a source of great joy as it has lead me to a path for searching new things to learn and new things to cre...

A Little Me Time

01-02-2011 05:17 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Pictures can be found at Just missed my flight to Boston, but on the upside, I get a little me time. I’ve been working pretty steady this weekend. I re-organized the workspace. And then – a new storage bench and some rearranging: That new bench is a salvaged office door, ripped in half and cut to needed lengths. It weighs some 200+ lbs. I have three more planks to use, so I’m thinking a new version of my bench that you see, but this one will have the mass n...

Work Bench Magazine

01-02-2011 04:46 PM by ElmoSr | 10 comments »

All I want to do today is vent,,,,my favorite magazine has sold out. I have been reading/using Work Bench for 20 years, and I have a collection going back to the 50’s. They have so changed the format that Work Bench has completely nothing like Work Bench was. Am I the only person that dislikes this change.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #213: Website Updates

01-02-2011 02:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It seems that there is always something new to learn. I am happy that I like learning new things though and I hope I always feel this way. I spent the working portion of my day yesterday learning how to do more stuff on the site as we are preparing it for the latest update. Although it took a little time and effort to learn the processes on the new software, I am really happy with the results and how things are beginning to look. It has only been a couple of months since we changed over ...

what i've been doing #4: more bench

01-02-2011 07:07 AM by Dave | 0 comments »

Today has tested my match planning ability. As you can see the design of the legs leaves me very little 90 degree true edges to work with. Look at the figure in this black walnut board. My wife and i love the sapwood. It even has figure. i cant wait to cut some dovetails in this with my new Japanese saw.

Extremely Average #314: I did it!

01-02-2011 06:16 AM by Ecocandle | 18 comments »

Hello All, I just posted chapter 35 Henry Wood. I wrote a blog piece every day of the last year. In truth, because of guest blogging, I actually wrote around 380 posts, but the point is, I didn’t take a day off! I couldn’t have made it without all of your kind words. Thanks, Brian

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #8: Plugs and Splines

01-02-2011 06:16 AM by Don | 9 comments »

Had I realized there are a total of 40 decorative plugs and splines required for each table I might have chosen some other project. This is going to get real tedious by the time I’m done but I think it will be worth it… The bread board spline is pretty straight forward. Here’s a trial spline I made with hickory and a black sharpie for practice: For the plugs on the legs I made a few jigs to help mark the cuts. If I just layed them out with pencil I’m sure I w...
