My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #36: Another Day At The Office

07-09-2010 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I don’t know where to begin this morning. After being buried in paperwork and writing yesterday, I may be close to being tapped out (for the moment anyway). I think today’s entry will be short and sweet so I can get back to finishing writing my patterns and get everything up on the site today. (I know – promises, promises!) I spent most of the day writing pattern instructions. Although I don’t really mind it that much, it does get to me after a while. It try t...

going green #1: veneer-thin poplar scraps glue-up

07-09-2010 12:23 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

A couple of years ago I built a standing floor cabinet foolishly out of all poplar (not true poplar, e.g. black poplar (Populus nigra) or white poplar (Populus alba), but tulip poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), the stuff you (and I) get from Home Depot). It cost about $800+ in wood, and over $1k all together. I should have used plywood! I jointed the big pile of boards and ripped their other sides to get them all identical in width. This left me with a whole pile of extremely thin edge-str...

Ridgid TS3650 #2: Have It

07-09-2010 03:59 AM by Carreiro | 4 comments »

After a lot of running around this morning – drive clean emissions test, visit to Busy Bee, and appointment at Square One mall – I finally made it to my local Home Depot to pick up my bargin. It’s now sitting in my garage 3/4 of the way to being completely assembled. I’ll need to get it down off of my workbench with a little help from my brother tomorrow, but I think I’ll have it set up and running by the end of the day (keep your fingers crossed). I’m ...

My maple coffee table #4: Update on my progress

07-09-2010 03:13 AM by DrewM | 8 comments »

Had a free day today in spend in the shop. I finished flattening the top with my new wood river no.5 plane (thanks LJ Forums for the help there). I also finished milling the legs and aprons down to final size. Then I put a edge on the top with the router and did some sanding. Next I plan to make the floating tenons and cut the mortises for the legs and aprons. So far my project is coming along nicely with only some minor hiccups here and there. Thanks for reading, here are some pictures.

30 projects in 30 days #18: Off Center

07-09-2010 01:23 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

I like asymmetry, and am particularly drawn to projects that do not appear to have been created on the lathe, and beg the question, “How did you turn that?” These forms, are the result of experimenting with Therming. Turning one face of a piece at a time, around an axis that doesn’t pass within the form. Thus creating a multi-sided, yet still turned piece. Bedposts are a classic example, with rounded sides, but a clear vertical edge line where the faces meet. T...

Music Stand III #1: New Design for a Music Stand

07-08-2010 10:56 PM by Alan Young | 7 comments »

I am working on a new Music Stand design. This is compilation of previous pieces including this music stand I built in 2007 and this Tea Table that I finished just a few months ago. This post will show the technique I have employed for holding the center post to the tri-pod leg assembly. I admit that I have omitted taking pictures along the way that would fill -in the gaps to the story but I hope most of the steps will be clear. The center post started as twp pieces of...
