Bedroom Set Bed #1: Started on the Bed for the bedroom set

02-26-2010 06:09 AM by BradHess | 4 comments »

So I got to spend a few hours in the workshop today and actually got quite a bit done on the bed. The headboard and foot board are being built out of 1/4 inch panels left over from re-sawing the drawer fronts. These panels are being mounted into a 1 1/2 inch frame and panel style. The center panel is going to be copper that was removed from my grandparents house when they had their roof replaced. The copper has some cool V shaped patina to it which should look pretty cool. I am going to...

Chip carving patterns #4: Wheat 1

02-26-2010 05:54 AM by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Perhaps a good design for coasters that will hold those beer bottles! Keeping the knife in a near vertical position where the stems cross over will help to keep tear out to a minimum.

Extremely Average #55: Is It Worth It?

02-26-2010 05:47 AM by Ecocandle | 12 comments »

The best part about blogging, as a beginner at woodworking, is that one learns much more than they would, were they doing the woodworking alone. Yesterday’s blog had some great reactions, and posed a great question, is it worth it? Is it worth the extra dollars for the expensive equipment? An experienced woodworker, who has tried a full gamut of tools, could give a solid argument for or against. I am not such a woodworker. With every purchase, the pros and cons must be weighed. ...

Saw Search #1: Shouldn't this easier?

02-26-2010 05:36 AM by MakingScraps | 5 comments »

The search for saws that make the cut I am just getting into woodworking and I am finding that the further down the rabbit hole of tool buying I go the harder it gets to decide what to spend my hard earned cash on when space and budget are top concerns. Feel free to skip my rambling. Hopefully by verbalizing my decision here I will be able to come to a reasonable conclusion (except buy a bunch of saws). I am looking for a couple of handsaws that will perform the trifecta of woodworking cut...

Boxes! Boxes! Boxes!

02-26-2010 04:44 AM by mkrok | 1 comment »

So when I decided that I will take the plundge back into woodworking I had to decide on what kinds of projects I would make. As I have said before I’m not very good. So what can I make that will help me with my skills? I went back to the basics, boxes. In my opinion, boxes are the basic building block for just about everything. Let’s face it, if you cant cut straight lines or make square joints then your projects will look like mine. Boxes will be fun too; everyone needs b...

Hand Made End Table 2010 #1: Roughing Out The Base

02-26-2010 04:29 AM by Walnut_Weasel | 2 comments »

As a few of you may know, I am a woodworking newbie. I just took the plunge last summer and purchased a bandsaw. Money is still pretty tight for us but I have been able to pick up a few basic tools here in there. I decided to buy a hand plane simply because I could buy a nice plane for much less than I can buy a jointer and planer. I immediately became hooked on hand tools. I am still in the middle of making a small tea box for our kitchen table. I have most of the box complete but I st...

A Flag Display Box #6: Turning a Page...

02-26-2010 04:28 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

The Bad News is I’ve done virtually no work on this project of late…but the Good News is I’ll be getting the Lexan to continue this project sometime this weekend!! The work should proceed pretty quickly after that…In the meanwhile, I thought I’d share a little of what has kept me so busy.It seems the latest “Maladie du jour” the shrinks have “discovered” is called Hoarding. As usual, they’re late to the party, our Grandparents could ...

Everything for Sale

02-26-2010 04:24 AM by mkrok | 5 comments »

Wow I just read the posting rules !!! Ok from now on every project I post is FOR SALE. Maybe I’ll make my 2 cents back some day. Now if anyone really wants to buy the crap I make, that is their problem. After you see some of my projects think you will get my sense of humor. To be perfectly honest, I’m scared as heck to post my work, to a site full of woodworkers. First thing we ALL say when we see a project – ”I can make that” Check back soon.
