Playroom #3: Lighting Retrofit

06-12-2010 07:42 PM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So as I previously posted in Let there be more light I added a lamp to my daughters playhouse. I had just used some liquid nail to attach it to the shelf. This did a good job of holding up for a few months until one of her friends decided to use the lamp pull cord as a swing. The lip around the lamp was not that large and the lamp fell. Luckily it fell into the loft and not the entire way to the floor. But a new holding mechanism was needed.. So here is the new way it works. I drilled ...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2: A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2

06-12-2010 06:12 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

On the following day after the glue has set, the band clamps are removed. It is time to begin truing up the ring of segments. In order to attain flatness on one of the ring’s edge I’ll lay a segment flat on the bed of the disc sander. It’s important to maintain a 90 degree angle during this operation. Take your time and make sure of accuracy. When the edge is truly flat we can then proceed to the lathe. Now the ring is mounted on the lathe and the opposite edge...

The Impossible #3: MI-2

06-12-2010 05:29 PM by BritBoxmaker | 29 comments »

Hello back again. I really don’t like glue-ups with pieces that have angles other than 90°. Strange really considering I make boxes with mitred joints. No matter, first question. Who can spot something missing from this picture This is how I found the workbench this morning. I could have sworn (and I do, a lot) that I had cut five 30mm pieces of Sycamore and theres only four there. In devon we have a special brand of pixie, called the f**kup pixie. They had obviously been in, ove...

Built-In Bookcases and Mantel Surround #4: Possibly adding a drawer, or discreet compartment?

06-12-2010 04:54 PM by Jonathan | 5 comments »

Before I address the title of this blog entry, I must back up a bit here. I have not been working on the bookcases and mantel for several weeks because near the end of May, my grandfather became very ill and passed away on June 1st. Our family left town at the end of last weekend after the service was held. In the midst of all this turmoil, several sections of our back fence blew over during some 50-60mph winds. We were going to replace this fence either later this fall, or possibly next spri...

1 Year Anniversary

06-12-2010 02:56 PM by MOJOE | 3 comments »

I just received a comment that my 1 year anniversay is Monday… a year went by fast! I found this site while building a toybox for my daughter, now I have a son and was inspired to build him a crib and dresser, before long another toybox will be on my project list. Anyway, thanks so much for all the comments and fast help when needed. This really is a community of great people. Also, I know this is a couple days early, but knowing myself the way I do, I will probably forget on ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #10: Some Days are Just Frustrating

06-12-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Did you ever get out of bed and before you were done with your first cup of coffee wish you could start the day over again? I guess it happens to all of us from time to time. I guess this blog isn’t going to be too much about woodworking today, but it does have to do with running a woodworking business and all that entails, so I forewarn you if you are looking for a tip or to see a project, this may not be the place – at least for today. I promise this won’t turn into t...

Barrel of Monkeys

06-12-2010 08:07 AM by David Craig | 17 comments »

I have been an LJ member for about 6 months now, admiring the projects of those so gifted and occasionally posting my humble offerings. Working on my latest project, I realized, we are all part of a chain of a living barrel of monkeys. When we are new, the top, the bar that is raised, seems so very high, impossible to climb or reach up to. But, when we lift up our hand (our paw?) we don’t touch empty air, but a hand above us that connects us to the chain as we reach our own hand to t...

Extremely Average #161: I was given some practice wood...

06-12-2010 05:22 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello All, This has been a great day. I was given a bunch of practice wood and I have been practicing my hand planing. I really like taking rough, misshapen, odd pieces and turning them into smaller useful pieces. I included 4 pictures today. All in all, a pretty good post and day in the shop. Brian
