White Oak Library Stand #1: Leaving On A Jet Plane(r) - Prepping Lumber

09-20-2010 07:48 PM by David Craig | 14 comments »

Finally, enough chaos seems to have subsided and I can spend some time on some projects. Woodsmith magazine had plans for a library stand made out of White Oak. I have a family bible boxed away that this would make a good display for, as well as allowing me to get rid of a stand or two that I am not overly fond of. A few months ago, a few of the Michigan LJs went to a mill in Michigan and I picked up close to 20 board feet of quartersawn white oak for the project. I got a pretty goo...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #4: Well, they were projects anyway...

09-20-2010 04:15 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

So I had a few things on my to do list this weekend. For starters, I have been driving the pickup for the last month as the safety inspection sticker on the Saturn had expired, and the brakes were squeaking, that would instantly fail me… So after work on Friday, I went to Auto Zone, and grabbed a set of Ceramic pads. Now I do NOT have a brake lathe anywhere near me, but I DID resurface my rotors. How those of you with inquiring minds ask. Simple… I have made a conical chuck to hol...

Men's Valet Golf Tournament Prizes #3: Not Satisfied

09-20-2010 01:51 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 0 comments »

Well I finished working on the box, but I am not entirely satisfied with the outcome. I will post the final pictures when I get home later for you all to see. My prototype box was built from 3/8” pine, the new box is built from 1/2” walnut, I thought the 3/8” width was pretty wide already but now with the 1/2” it just looks real blocky (if thats an actual term). If I intend to make boxes using the 1/2” thick lumber my boxes are going to need to be much larg...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #109: Hitting the Ground Running

09-20-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I did wind up taking advantage of the beautiful day yesterday and I played ‘hookie’. It was a beautiful and warm day and it was just too tempting for me to resist spending some time outside. I am looking at all the things that I have to do today however and I am certainly going to pay the price for it. Not really, but there are things that I have to get done that I need to do today and the list is a bit longer than I wanted. I know today will go by fast. We wound up going t...

Sheet Goods Rack with Clamp Storage

09-20-2010 07:45 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

Sheet goods that just sit on the floor aren’t very mobile. When I can’t move stuff around my shop, I can’t maximize the space. So I need to organize those sheets properly and get them on wheels. I designed a new Sheet Goods Rack, but I’m not 100% satisified yet. I looked online but didn’t really find what I wanted, and I can’t do the pivoting rolling rack on hinges some of you have done. Check out my design over at my blog and let me know what you thi...
