Hi all,Well after a few weeks of crazyness, jus thought I drop in an update. Got the materials on order at the mill. Decided to go with White Oak. I found a laser guy who can transpose a photo of Brian onto the bench slat. Off for week vacation, then up to the mill to pick up the wood… I’ll take photos of the trip… Official date of completion is looking around end of July (this year!)... Thanks for all the compliments!-Peter

1 Year Anniversary

06-12-2010 02:56 PM by MOJOE | 3 comments »

I just received a comment that my 1 year anniversay is Monday… a year went by fast! I found this site while building a toybox for my daughter, now I have a son and was inspired to build him a crib and dresser, before long another toybox will be on my project list. Anyway, thanks so much for all the comments and fast help when needed. This really is a community of great people. Also, I know this is a couple days early, but knowing myself the way I do, I will probably forget on ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #10: Some Days are Just Frustrating

06-12-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Did you ever get out of bed and before you were done with your first cup of coffee wish you could start the day over again? I guess it happens to all of us from time to time. I guess this blog isn’t going to be too much about woodworking today, but it does have to do with running a woodworking business and all that entails, so I forewarn you if you are looking for a tip or to see a project, this may not be the place – at least for today. I promise this won’t turn into t...

Barrel of Monkeys

06-12-2010 08:07 AM by David Craig | 17 comments »

I have been an LJ member for about 6 months now, admiring the projects of those so gifted and occasionally posting my humble offerings. Working on my latest project, I realized, we are all part of a chain of a living barrel of monkeys. When we are new, the top, the bar that is raised, seems so very high, impossible to climb or reach up to. But, when we lift up our hand (our paw?) we don’t touch empty air, but a hand above us that connects us to the chain as we reach our own hand to t...

Extremely Average #161: I was given some practice wood...

06-12-2010 05:22 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello All, This has been a great day. I was given a bunch of practice wood and I have been practicing my hand planing. I really like taking rough, misshapen, odd pieces and turning them into smaller useful pieces. I included 4 pictures today. All in all, a pretty good post and day in the shop. Brian

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #5: Chopping Mortises

06-12-2010 05:09 AM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

Tonight I finished off my mortises. I have been away from the project for quite a while and watched one of David Charlesworths’ DVD’s from Lie-Nielsen in the downtime. The DVD was about working with chisels and he chops a mortise in there somewhere. After watching the video I tweaked my approach a little and it helped immensley. The first mortise I did took about 40 min. Some in the middle were a little quicker. Tonight I got a more accurate job and it took about fifteen min...

Table Saw

06-12-2010 05:00 AM by TheWoodArtisan | 13 comments »

My ol lady gave me the go ahead to get a new table saw, however, my budget is only $500 dollars. Anyone have any suggestions? I know I want a cast iron top and a decent fence. I am looking at the Hitachi C10FL anyone have that saw? Is the fence good enough to last a while before I get the one I really want in a year or so?

In The Shop #1: Dust is getting to be a problem

06-12-2010 02:17 AM by live4ever | 16 comments »

<dustcollectionrant> The amount of time I spend running my two shopvacs (did I say two? yes I did) is getting to be ridiculous. The bandsaw, tablesaw, and router put out a lot of dust and chips (duh). Today I routed a 3/4” groove in 30” long MDF for some T-track and everything to the left of my router table was covered in powder. My cabinet saw, though it spews most of the dust out the back and into a neat little pile under my workbench/outfeed table, makes a lot of it. ...

Winning is not everything.....

06-12-2010 12:55 AM by degoose | 41 comments »

Remember the thrill of discovering that people wanted to pay you to make things from timber … the first sale… how gratifying that was.. Last year my good friend and compatriot, Col, entered a few boards in the local Caboolture Show… and won first, second and third prizes This past week, while working in the shop, I realised that the Caboolture Show was looming… How good would it feel if I won a prize? Hey, that would be a great buzz.. Enter a few of the t...
