Commisions #15: Contemporary Bed #2

06-11-2010 02:46 AM by teenagewoodworker | 7 comments »

Well there’s not much time for a large write up today. I’m just sharing some picture. The bed is nearing completion. All that I am doing as of now is working on the face fraces as well as the final fitting of the drawers. I’m hoping to complete it this weekend. We should have nice weather so that will help me out. After this though it’s right on to another commission. Some wall mounted Bubinga writing shelves!

The Woodshop Widget

06-11-2010 01:54 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 38 comments »

You’ll have to forgive me for doing a little self-promotion here folks. But I think you are going to like this. We are very proud to announce The Woodshop Widget, a web-widget and iPhone/iPad/iPod app made especially for woodworkers. We’ve been thinking about putting an app out there for some time now, but the last thing we wanted to do was give you a glorified RSS feed of TWW content. Instead, we wanted the app to be incredibly useful, while still having some Wood Whispe...

Just for Fun... #18: A Total Mistake, a Fix, and More...

06-10-2010 11:58 PM by littlecope | 22 comments »

Yesterday I left off with the hinges all but cut out for my latest box…So this morning I was feeling good, feeling strong, ready to tackle the challenges of the new day. I began with the worst cuts to make, the side cuts. To help with this, I taped the two pieces together. These are heavy duty Scroll cuts, and I wanted to have as much heft to the pieces as I could. Being taped also aids in the stability of the things giving them a wider, flatter bottom The first cut went fine. On the se...

I gave this chair to my grandparents, as I didn’t fell that I could sell my first one also the ” quality &#...

Marble tower #2: What I've done so far

06-10-2010 10:07 PM by Woodcanuck | 8 comments »

I wanted to make the marble tower good and solid, so I’m making it primarily out of ash. This was convenient because I had some on hand. :-) Here’s where we stand today on the project: The first step was to build the base and attach the side rails to it that go up to where the cross bracing and the handle reside. This wasn’t too bad to do…but it was the first time that I ran into the concept of cutting compound angles…which I learned requires patienc...

Cross grain gluing and such

06-10-2010 10:01 PM by Richard | 1 comment »

We all heard how one has to be carefull on gluing certain parts together on a project such as cross grain, free floating panels, and so on. When I first started woodworking, I made every mistake possible including certain glue-ups that I wouldn’t do today. My idea back then was to paint the joint with glue and forget about it. But as I look at my earlier projects from 20 years ago I see how ugly my work was, but I am also surprised at how well those cross grain glue-ups are holding...

Marble tower #1: Working from a set of plans

06-10-2010 09:41 PM by Woodcanuck | 1 comment »

This is one of those well intentioned projects that started and got put on hold for many varied reasons/excuses. I’ve decided I just have to finish it before my daughter is too old to be interested. Otherwise, I’ll be sitting the playroom losing my marbles all by myself. I saw these plans years ago in a Lee Valley flyer and went out and bought them along with the kit that supplies the ball bearings (marbles), xylophone keys and bell. Here’s the picture from the catalog...

The Impossible #1: Escher Vibe

06-10-2010 08:00 PM by BritBoxmaker | 37 comments »

Following on from yesterday’s ‘Trip to the Wood Shop’ let me show you where the Escher vibe has taken me.Well to this A beautifully simple, yet impossible pattern. Look at it long enough and you’ll see why the three dimensional world it represents is impossible. Even if you accept that its possible as a pattern in two dimensions ( you have to you’re looking at it) then the long slim rods and the triangles are possible to make in wood but the cubes that the...
