Holiday Craft Season Coming to an End

12-16-2010 04:34 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 1 comment »

Here it is Dec 16th already and my crasft season has ended. Oct 16th marked my first FULL year of craft shows. I learned a lot this last year. Mainly, when setting up or getting ready for a show, you REALLY haven’t a clue as to what will sell and what won’t….... I thnk it’s like the coined phrase, “Ya pays ya nickle and ya takes ya chances”. SO TRUE. I know one thing (OK, maybe a couple) LVDTs are always a popular item and I will continue to make them...

Workbench... continued

12-16-2010 04:14 PM by Trimble | 0 comments »

I got a little more work done on my workbench last night. I had to replace two of the stretchers that were twisted. I thought I could pull the twist out when I put the screws in, but alas, I learned another woodworking lesson :) So, the base is now done, it’s nothing special, and I’m working on the top. I have two sheets of plywood that came from an old entertainment cabinet.. they are 24”x96” each, and I’m sanding the finish off and I plan to glue them tog...

Jayne's Rowboat Rocker #3: Basic Shape Complete

12-16-2010 03:59 PM by captkerk | 4 comments »

Yesterday started by doing final shaping on the ribs. I marked and cut them to length the night before and yesterday was the trial fit. All was well, so I needed to round-over the edges and sand them. Then it was time to install them permanently. A little bit of glue and a few well positioned screws hold each in place. I made a few adjustments to the bow upright, sanded it and installed it in place as well. Some more glue and screws here. Then it was time to bend the plywoo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #196: Did Anyone See Wednesday???

12-16-2010 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am looking for Wednesday. Does anyone know where it went? I think I blinked and it was gone! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe that the day went so quickly. (Drink your coffee fast, Cozmo! I think it is going to be a short one!) I got out of the house by 9am and I didn’t get home until probably 5pm. Meetings and errands all day. Not even time to see Bernie and Ellen! I had to food shop too so I had to put all the food away when I got home. I will be making a nice lasag...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #4: Miter Keys

12-16-2010 06:16 AM by FaTToaD | 2 comments »

In this final section of the Wine Cork Display Tutorials I will show you how I cut and glue in the miter keys. Larger Picture Version LJ Project of Finished Displays Here you can see my miter key jig. Since I cut so many miter keys for the wine cork displays and the boxes I make, I decided that a nice, large, dedicated jig would save me a lot of time. It works really well, I’ve used the heck out it. The first thing I do is figure out how far from the edge I want my keys to...

Double Step Cutting Board, errr Hot Pot Holder

12-16-2010 03:38 AM by jeepturner | 10 comments »

After looking at SPalm’s step cutting board blog, I figured that I would have to try my hand at making a double step board. I found some cherry, maple and purple heart from prior projects I followed the instructions to but the pieces: After glue up and cutting the two sections, I knew I wouldn’t have enough, so I set my sights a little lower.I had enough of the triangles to make a hexagon. I really need to rethink the clamping process before I start the next one, and al...

Infill Plane Kit Build #1: After fitting and peening

12-16-2010 01:32 AM by BigJohn | 4 comments »

I bought a shoulder plane kit and started the build. Now I am working on the infill material. I can’t decide between ebony or the cocobolo stock that came with the kit. It has been pretty straightforward so far. Nice instruction manual. I really hate they went out of business.
