Free Wood #3: A morning in paradise

05-26-2009 06:27 PM by Tony | 3 comments »

I spend a lot of the time in the woods each weekend, catching up on my botany. I’ve always enjoyed woodworking, but as I concentrated on “making a living” through the years, I didn’t make much effort to fully enjoy those things that I was once passionate about. (I was a biology major in college.) I have become very passionate about understanding the woods I use in my hobbies – everything from recognizing them in their natural environment, to studying their mic...

Walnut and Lacewood Crib #2: Status Update

05-26-2009 05:33 PM by HokieMojo | 3 comments »

Well, I’m about 3 months past my deadline to finish the crib I’ve been building. I was planning to shoot some photos with some status updates when I had a router mishap. I was routing channels for the gate slides to rest in and the router jumped and ran accross the leg on the headboard. This was the point when I got fed up and quit for the day. At this point, I can’t disassemble and rebuild because of my timeline, so I’ll have to accept it and move on. I did ru...

Woodworking Magazine - A Review

05-26-2009 04:22 PM by Eric | 8 comments »

Until last week, I had never read Woodworking Magazine. It first hit the press when I was already in Malaysia, and I never ran across it during my time in the States in 2006-7. But when my Shortcut on cutting curves without a bandsaw got accepted for the Spring 2009 issue, I got a free one-year subscription. I got my first issue – along with Winter 2008 – the other day. Wow. I had read woodworking magazines before, but as a neanderthal was always put off by the powertoolc...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #11: Just a little quick update with no pics

05-26-2009 04:29 AM by BethMartin | 3 comments »

Still chugging along. I bought a bunch of wood for my windows. Ho-lee crap. So much wood. I didn’t realize how deep my windows were. I thought I could case out the insides with 1×8”s, but that’s just a shade too narrow. So a ton of 1×10” boards. There’s no way I could afford to do it in the maple I’ve been using for the cabinets. And so I’m doing it in fir. The stained color should be about the same, and I’m going for the rustic look a...

My workshop #2: Now the interior

05-26-2009 03:18 AM by jrecord | 5 comments »

The electrician starts tomorrow. He has to replace my 130 amp house breaker box with a 200 amp box and run an underground conduit to the workshop.Then he roughs in the 120 and 220 circuits and the T8 florescent lighting.Not cheap, but I will have all the electrical up to code. I just heard that Sam Maloof has passed away. His work is inspiring to any woodworker, no matter what style you are interested in. He will be missed.
