My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #230: More Preparation

01-19-2011 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I appreciate very much the responses yesterday regarding questions that would be of interest to someone new at scroll sawing. The answers and conversations proved very helpful in allowing me to see what a new person would want to know. These questions are very helpful in preparing for the class and will give me a good starting point and open some pertinent dialogue with those attending. I spoke with Jeannie yesterday, who is my friend who initially petitioned for me to come and speak at ...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #7: Glue-less edge joints

01-19-2011 08:32 AM by chscholz | 12 comments »

When mentioning that Chinese woodworking does not use glue I always get the question how to edge-joint without glue. On a recent trip to Southern China I had the opportunity to see a very nice example on what it looks like. The Perl River Delta (roughly the triangle spanned by Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macau) is quite pleasant in Winter but extremely hot and humid in Summer. Since electricity is quite expensive people there tend to use the AC orders of magnitude less than in the US. This pu...

A friend of mine sent to me some video posts on YouTube that are incredible. If you enjoy watching hand craftmanship you’ll enjoy these video’s. You might not understand the language but I’m sure you’ll be amazed at the work.

Computer Case #1: A Cabinet Computer

01-19-2011 07:50 AM by MapleBear | 5 comments »

This is a computer case I came up with as a All-in-one design. The cabinet houses the computer components as well as a 23” LCD display. I used spalted maple (harvested from our firewood pile) and pine for the back, purple heart for the corners, marblewood to frame the LCD display, and paduk/maple for the the side panels.

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #3: I made it on time today!!!!

01-19-2011 06:38 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Hello All, Well I finally made it on time today, even though it meant we had to hurriedly eat at A&W tonight :-) Although I wasn’t as early as I had planned as when I got to the College I started driving up their steep (and as it turns out very very slippery drive way) where someone was letting off a passenger about halfway up (I thought this was kind of odd, why not just let them off at the top where the buildings are) so I stopped because I wasn’t sure if there was enou...

Lauren's Bed #1: A Start to the Modified Captain's Bed for Lauren

01-19-2011 06:57 AM by Jesse Schutt | 0 comments »

I’ve been slowly working on building a modified captain’s bed for my 3 year old daughter. I thought I’d document some of the progress here. It’s been a fun project so far and my wife is itching for me to get it completed. This is the initial concept that I came up with after seeing a similar bed in a local furniture store. Lauren’s room isn’t very large, so having some storage under the bed is really a bonus. Lauren outgrew her crib and small b...

Extremely Average #319: Just an update...

01-19-2011 06:21 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello all, I did some cleaning of the shop tonight. Nothing worth writing about though. I have still been adding chapters to Henry Wood. I just realized that I have been neglecting the LJ folks. I am sorry about that. There are seven or eight more chapters up now. I just posted ch 45, and I think the last one I told you about was 37. If you click on the Henry Wood heading at the top, they are all grouped together. It is pretty close to 50,000 words now, so this one is offically a n...

Built-In Bed #14: Drawer Fronts

01-19-2011 04:55 AM by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience. He has recently moved on to the drawer-building phase.) Over the weekend I found time to install the top two drawers into the bookcase ends of the built-in. I used these drawer slides from Woodworker’s Hardware, and I can recommend them to anyone looking for cheaper but well-made drawer slides. As far as I can tell, these are identical to the much more ex...
