Table Saw Cabinet Project #4: Lifting Mechanism Concept Complete

09-24-2010 09:15 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 3 comments »

I’m pretty happy with this. A few details are missing. As shown, the handle that lowers the casters can also be used to pull the cabinet around. I need to add a lock so I can also push on the handle without the casters retracting. The middle casters are rigid and the outer ones are swivel. The weight of the cabinet will mostly be on the pipe which will somewhat act as a spring for uneven floors.

Happy Autumnal Equinox

09-24-2010 05:40 PM by EPJartisan | 2 comments »

Watching the moon rise a few days ago, was one event that will last with me forever. My studio is on the third and top floor of one the tallest building in the whole Industrial corridor from Lake Michigan to the Western horizon.. and large windows to enjoy both views. So while working on my latest project, I looked around 7pm and found the largest full moon I have seen in a long time, but I was casting shadows from the West… turning was the most amazing sunsets I have seen in a while. I...

Platform Bed #1: Inspiration and Requirements

09-24-2010 05:40 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

Soon I’ll be delving into the design of my next project, a queen-size platform bed for my wife and myself to share. These first two images are the best examples of the overall look I’ll be going for. I love the low set of these beds coupled with the overhang of the platform. They have a cleanliness of line that lends a lot of elegance to a simple structure and allows the material to be the star. The built-in side tables are a must for achieving this look. We don’t...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #6: Anna and Jacqueline

09-24-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Anna and Jacqueline are sisters. Although they sometimes quarrel, they are truly best friends. Anna, the eldest of the two is quite a tomboy. She loves to run and climb and play sports. Her mother bought her a wonderful woolen plaid coat in hopes of encouraging her to act more like a ‘lady’, but Anna sees it more of a nuisance. Why does she have to be a girl anyway? Jacqueline, on the other hand, loves being a girl. Her favorite playthings are her soft, cuddly teddy bear...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #113: Random Thoughts on Groups and Stuff

09-24-2010 12:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

And so ends another week. . . Is it me, or did this one really go by fast? It must mean that I was too busy to notice. I think back to Monday when I sent out that package with the projects for the magazine and it seems like weeks ago. I did accomplish a lot this week though and I am happy that for the most part things got done. I had lunch with a couple of friends of mine that I used to see every week at the painting group I belonged to in Bear River. It was hard to believe that I ha...

sawdust chronicles challenge #5: I'll try anything once

09-24-2010 09:50 AM by BigTiny | 10 comments »

Greetings all. In an attempt to get the brilliant colors I want for my Sawdust Chronicles challenge build, I’ve been trying various methods of coloring wood. One of the more unorthodox ways I’ve tried worked better than I thought it would. Quite a bit better to be precise. Believe it or not, I tried Rit cloth dye! Mixed it a little stronger than the directions called for (1 1/2 cups of water per package instead of 2) and tested on some small pieces of maple veneer. Best ...

My Steampunk Telescope #1: The pieces so far

09-24-2010 02:02 AM by TelescopeMaker | 7 comments »

I make telescopes.This is my first big one. O, so its not so big, its only 12” in diameter, and big (to me) is 20”. But its big enough for me, and something that I have wanted to do since I was a kid. It will be completely functional, and it will also (eventually) be tricked out in the Steampunk style – brass, wood, gears and fancy stuff. This is a close up of an older version of what I am making. This is what I have so far. Its held together with clamps right no...
