Built In Closets #8: Installation Part I - Amateur mistake destroys weeks of work

11-20-2010 05:32 PM by SPHinTampa | 12 comments »

Installation was not a pleasant experience. I made a mistake so dumb it makes me wonder if I should just put my workshop on Craigslist and take up knitting. I had the closet units completed assembled, finished with face frames attached. These units need to brought into the bedroom, brought into a hallway, lifted and tilted in. I drew out the dimensions in advance to ensure I could get the unit in. My drawing were wrong. The d*#n units can not be tilted in, they are too big...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #170: Lights . . . camera . . . action!!

11-20-2010 02:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 26 comments »

Yesterday was quite a break though. I know it is the beginning of bigger and better things for me. For a while now, many of you have requested that I make videos to teach others both how to scroll saw and also to paint and finish projects. It was only this week that I discovered that my digital camera took such nice video. I knew it took videos, but for some reason, I thought it would be crappy and unwatchable. Maybe I was thinking of the crummy cell phone videos that I have seen. S...

Extremely Average #294: A Moment of Woodworking

11-20-2010 05:54 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello All, I didn’t have to work today, so I had a some time for woodworking. I have missed being able to do it every day. So I continued work on my tiny drawer. In taking the photos for the post, I tried something new, and it worked. So I got better at woodworking and photography tonight. That is a pretty good day, in my humble opinion. http://su.pr/26Vlxf Brian

Built-In Bed #6: Don't Mock Me!

11-20-2010 04:52 AM by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience, and so far has made only a small number of terrible errors, which fortunately he can blame on others.) Just a short note today, because I haven’t had time to make significant progress these last two days. I did get out and trim the two panels that make up one side of the built-in to the same width and cut the top and bottom pieces, as well as the one perman...

Corner Inlay Table #1: Months after table-top glue up

11-20-2010 03:26 AM by Rick | 0 comments »

Basics: Poplar, Mortise and Loose Tenon, Gel Stains and Top Coat In spite of starting this months ago with a quick drawing and a 3-board glue up for the top, I only recently started back on it. A move to a new house/shop, and a new job search put a ka-bosh on most of it. Short on cash, I glued up legs rather than buy 8/4 stock, and made do with wood I had on hand. I chose poplar because at first, my wife wanted to paint it. But after showing her some finishes with some gel stains, she&#...

Trestle Table Desks #5: Trestles glued up and ready to sand. Now: what's that stretcher going to look like?

11-20-2010 01:57 AM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

These went together beautifully, thanks to careful custom fitting and labeling tongues and grooves. As noted before, the structure is cherry and the panels are juniper. I haven’t yet envisaged the stretcher, so that’s the Monday project. It may be cherry, it may be juniper. Both are in stock. There was another insight that struck me today while I was thinking about the logistics of finishing these two pieces and how much real estate that would require and how much...

New band saw table....

11-20-2010 01:32 AM by lilredweldingrod | 11 comments »

I needed a larger table for my 14 inch band saw. So I looked up a 16×36 inch piece of 10 gauge aluminum from my stock pile. This is what I came up with. The finished size is 16×26. This morning my neighbor, Mike, came over and wanted to use my saw. He had some 8/4 oak to radius the corners on. Just as we were really getting started, the mail ran and here was my new Wood slicer. We finished the cutting with the HD cheapy blade and got him back to work. Now th swap out the blade...

Incredible Wooden Bike...Feature Article from PopSci

Wooden Bike Like Riding a Perfect Piece of FurnitureBy Mark McClusky November 18, 2010 | 4:43 pm | Categories: Transportation << Previous | Next >> View allAt first, it’s odd, hopping on a bike frame made entirely of wood. After all, I’m used to high-tech composite framed made of carbon-fiber nanotubes impregnated with exotic resins, molded to tolerances of a thousandth of an inch. How could bamboo and hardwoods compare? Actually, quite well. Renovo sent me its R4, a ...
