Way Back Wednesday #2: Spanish Rose

11-18-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

On Way Back Wednesday, I’m not going too far. In my span here it is. It is our Spanish Rose Four Poster. I built my first one about 10 years ago. At one time it was one of our biggest sellers. It was really our first production standard bed. Production as in I standardized the cut list and design to make it easier, quicker to build, and cheaper for the customer. It was a solid pine bed, built mostly form 2×10’s. The iron was a rose pattern made from cast iron. I really loved how I fin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #168: The Pink Cloud is a Little Green Today :(

11-18-2010 02:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today’s post will be short. I have had to take some antibiotics for some things going on and they really are doing a number on me. I started them on Monday and need to be on them for a week, and I have felt progressively worse. Last night my tummy was pretty bad and I wound up calling the pharmacist. I was up most of the night. I also read up on the two prescriptions that I am taking and it is normal that while taking the meds that I am going to feel this way. So for the next couple...

Wheelchair Woodworking #3: Time to further move on

11-18-2010 12:32 PM by Jamie Speirs | 20 comments »

Well, thanks for all the nice replies.When he started coming here it was always in the company of a carer or the title of support worker. This was a strange set up, whenever we spoke to him he would look at the floor and wait for the carer to answer. This we soon solved, Gordon (my right hand) took the carer to one side and taught them to turn.This gave me the opportunity to work one on one. So begun the making shavings. He must have made garden dibbers and spurtle’s for everyone that he knew...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

Shipyard Memories #7: The Smaug Blog: Wood Boatbuilding 101, Interior and Stepping the Mast

11-18-2010 04:41 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

The interior of the boat was completed before launching, unfortunately without any progress photos so I’ll just show some finished shots here. Interior woods are Red cedar deckhead, teak cabin sole and salon table, yellow cedar beams, knees and sparring (ceiling) on the hull and largely Honduras mahogany trim. The bulkheads are 3/4” marine fir plywood. In the salon and galley areas they are sheeted with 1/8” ash and in the forward cabin the bulkheads are veneered with red o...

Book Bench #2: Mortises, Tenons & a Finishing Fiasco

11-18-2010 03:34 AM by spunwood | 2 comments »

M & T With two tenons per leg, I created the dillema of chiseling 8 mortises. I do not yet have sharpening stones and my skills with mortising are a bit lacking, so I decided to simplify and just do two by hand and cut off 6 tenons. This meant alot of sanding to even up the top of the legs so that the bench top would sit evenly and be supported throughout rather than by just one or two of the leg tops. But I am so happy that I kept two mortises. They came out well despite some te...

Built-In Bed #5: A Thin Veneer of Civilization

11-18-2010 03:19 AM by Scott R. Turner | 2 comments »

After work today I headed for the garage/workshop to veneer the plywood edges of the large panels. But first I moved everything to the edges of the garage and swept out the sawdust and shavings. It was a sizable pile (with a few Fall leaves mixed in): I trotted it out to the compost bin, which gets plenty of green waste but is always happy for a some atomized wood. Each of the large panels for the built-in bed has three-ply thick raw edge like so: Today’s pro...
