Just for Fun... #21: A Mixed Bag...

06-23-2010 02:19 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

I’ve heard quite a lot about Wood Shop closures in various School systems around the Country… it’s saddening news. That’s why it was great the other morning to go by my old Alma Mater and see that, at least here in Manchester, the Woodworking programs are alive and well!!On my way to work I spotted these handsome works-in progress…I’m not sure exactly what you call them… They each had a tapered leg assembly next to them, so they’re a stand-up ki...

Off Kilter.. #3: In the Round

06-23-2010 01:21 PM by degoose | 18 comments »

Here is another sneak peek of the slanted tight weave.. After the glue up, the board was sanded on the drum sander, cut into a circle on the bandsaw, chamfered the edges and just to give you a look at the color… I used a little turps…Further work on this piece will include more sanding and possibly using the Torque Workcentre to route out a dish in the centre.. then I will mount it on a Lazy Susan cast aluminium bearing..

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #20: Contests and pricing and movies - Oh My!

06-23-2010 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be short and sweet. (Yah, right! you are all saying!) I really am caught up in a lot of ‘busy work’ stuff today and hopefully can accomplish everything I want to. I finished polishing up my articles yesterday and I emailed them to my editor ahead of the box of three items he accepted so I can hear sooner rather than later if he wants to use them or not. I guess I will never get over the apprehension of submitting things. I don’t look at it in as...

PUBLIC APPEARANCE

I did not know that Planet Soccer was so famous that a local newspaper wanted to report it in the news. A reporter and her photographer came to our place and interviewed me and took some photos on Thursday, a day before the timber show, and the report was in the newspaper today.Now you can see me with Planet Soccer in The Advertiser, if you click on: www.macarthuradvertiser.com.au Thanks for reading the article.

four station desk #1: First look

06-23-2010 10:43 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...

MEGAN'S BOX - Made for a purpose #2: Developing skill - fast and easy way

06-23-2010 09:28 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

Thereafter the box side joined together, the challenge was over. The rest joint will come in… THE TRAYSIn order to avoid monotony of color, MOLAVE (Philippine Hardwood with yellow finish) was choosen as the sides and black KAMAGONG was the bottom plate. Dovetail cutting was easy on Molave. Though it is hard, the saw cuts with slippery surface. The Molave contains its own oil. The hard part will be the gluing. I was so careful to smear the glue because it reacts to the oil of th...

Extremely Average #172: Hand Plane Tribe

06-23-2010 03:59 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

Hello LJ’s, What a day! I got a present from a LJ reader of my blog. I didn’t know it was coming, he just sent it. The best part is that he just labeled the box Brian Meeks, Martelle, Iowa. No address or p.o. box, but since I live in a town of 280, where everyone knows everyone else, that was plenty. It made me and the post master chuckle. I received 3 hand planes and a spokeshave, in great condition. So tonight’s blog is about my new hand planes that have joined my...
