Mikros Kosmos #19: And we're back

08-28-2010 02:55 PM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

Hey everybody! Haven’t been able to make any progress on this project lately, due to lots of travelling and then the work backlash that happens after lots of travelling.. Last night I had some time avaiable and decided to work on this. I am using simple balsa wood for the frame of this. There’s no reason to use anything heavier. So, I glued together the base frame and then glued some heavy cardboard to it. I considered using wood for the bottom, since traditionally pl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #86: I'm Baaaack! What a terrific day!

08-28-2010 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Well you could have all figured that I would be late with the blog this morning. That was kind of a given. We got up at 4:30 yesterday morning and hit the road and we didn’t get home until after 9pm. We were tired, but quite excited and wound up and I didn’t get to bed until after midnight. I woke at 5:15 this morning and got a drink of water and went promptly back to bed. It just wasn’t time yet! What an incredible day we had! It was perfect from start to finish. ...

Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #3: Day 1 photos

08-28-2010 01:07 PM by daltxguy | 2 comments »

Some photos of day 1 – milling a pine log. Today we cut a section of the windblown pine, dragged it into place (literally), setup the mill and everyone had a go at cutting a few pieces of wood. Not a lot of pieces of wood but the point was for everyone to have a go and to mix up the types and sizes of cuts for practice and instruction and for fun. Only 1 mishap when the poorly balanced ( and grossly undersized trailer of mine) bounced off of the hitch from an underperforming hitch l...

My Lucky Day!!!

08-28-2010 07:14 AM by Steph78 | 21 comments »

I was at work the other day showing some of the guys the bean bag boards I made and one of them was like “so are you into woodworking”? I said yes and I showed him some more pics of the stuff Ive made and then he asked if I wanted or needed anymore tools? Of course I said yes and he said ” ok come by tomorrow and if you like or want any of the stuff I have you can have all of it. HOLY CRAP!!!! I totally freaked out on what he had! If I didn’t just have back to back spi...

08-28-2010 06:35 AM by twokidsnosleep | 3 comments »

I wanted a bandsaw to cut up wood into usable lumber.Now I am starting really small, but have had some initial success with the GO555P.So lets have a look.Pile of cedar fencing I had to replace due to rot at the bases I zipped them through the bandsaw and planed one side and one edge square, then resawed. Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

Memorandum #1: Bored in Belle Chasse

08-28-2010 05:15 AM by nurvreck | 3 comments »

So right now I’m sitting in my room at NAS JRB in Belle Chasse, LA watching Fight Club (one of the best movies ever made). I’ve been here since Aug 14th. I’m here in TAD orders as in assistant instructor running a Martial Arts Instructor Course for a group of reservist here. Not a bad gig. Getting paid extra for half a month of being away from my actual job (mos instructor) to run a course that’s basically three weeks of inflicting pain into others. While I would much ...
