My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #178: Now That's More Like It!

11-28-2010 02:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I sure do love it when things click in! I honestly don’t know what differentiates one day from the next but sometimes it just seems that things get rolling and things just . . . .well, roll! Yesterday was an amazingly productive day. I finished my new candle tray drawing and I began the next one. I have the next one all laid out in my mind as to what I want and again, it is only a matter of getting it down on paper to make it a reality. I had initially planned on painting Christm...

Wheelchair Woodworking #6: Helping Hands part two

11-28-2010 11:46 AM by Jamie Speirs | 18 comments »

Sorry for the break, I’m not good at getting things down. I wander to much. :) Well there was a post tutorial discussion with my Right Hand Man Gordon. (I must make a note to tell you about Gordon my RHM) Pulling teeth was our consensus. Gordon asked if he had paid the full eight weeks? Worse, nine weeks. I had thrown in an extra week. Some folk who travel will often come for a weekend or two. I prefer doing it weekly and give them homework for the next. After eight weeks they reall...

Child Safety In The Home Workshop

11-28-2010 09:47 AM by swampjack80 | 11 comments »

Hi everyone, So, I finally made it out to my shop today after a good/bad couple of Thanksgiving off-days. Good because I was able to spend some time with my family, bad because I had to watch Auburn mount a great comeback against my beloved Crimson Tide, bleh! So what could be a better way to unwind than piddling around all day in the ol’ workshop? Well, I’m running a few short boards through the planer when my wife and 3 yr old son, Chad Jr., pay me a visit. I try to keep a sa...

Bloggin' about loggin'

Here are a few pics of the maple and alder collecting I did last fall and late summer out at the tree farm. A few whacks with the maul on a couple of wedges turns this into these ;-)) This double grab hook comes in real handy Easy to open when it gets bound up too tight :-)) Handy for lifting logs too The Tree Farm is on the far end of the low hill in the foreground. It is just about dead center in the picture where the darkest green gets a bit lighter for the next hill...

Extremely Average #300: Henry Wood Ch 5

11-28-2010 05:56 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I think that this is my favorite chapter thus far. While I was working today, I sort of let the ideas rattle around in my noggin all day. When I finally got home and wrote them down, the little bits of ideas seemed to go really well together. Henry Wood Chapter 5 Thanks, Brian p.s. I am going to start working on a matte board cutting/photograpy table on Tuesday. First step will be to go buy some wood for the legs, and Tuesday will be my fir...

My new Roubo #1: Legs...lots of sweat, lots of shavings

11-28-2010 03:57 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

I first got into woodworking a year ago when my wife and I bought our first house. At the time, my son and I built a makeshift workbench using 2×4s, plywood, hardboard, and a $20 vise from Lowes. It’s served me well in building some cabinets for the house, but it’s seriously lacking in a lot of ways. Being a big fan Christopher Schwarz’s books, DVDs, and blogs, I’ve been wanting to build a Roubo-style bench for months. I finally got a break in my honey-do proje...

How square is square?

11-28-2010 02:11 AM by nobuckle | 12 comments »

I’m building a crosscut sled and I need to know how square the front fence needs to be to the blade. I was using my carpenter’s square and frankly I just can’t believe that a carpenters square is square enough when it comes to this type of jig. Maybe it’s my toolmaking background that is causing the boggle. I switched to using my machinist square but I’m still not sure if the fence is truly square enough. The fence is currently screwed in place, I haven’...
