What is TALENT and who has it?

06-02-2010 03:36 PM by Don Butler | 27 comments »

What is TALENT? What to do about it In today’s blog, I want to talk about talent. Everybody tells me, when they see my woodworking or the pictures I make by hand or with a camera, “Oh, you’re so TALENTED”. I’m flattered, of course, but in my mind I want to quibble with that. The word talent, as with so many words, has lost its real meaning. Most of the time it’s used to indicate appreciation of good work. When someone, take as an example a knitter, makes a beautiful sweater or hat, some ...

ARMOIRE- Jewelry box - using RECYCLED WOOD #1: Armoire - Jewelry box

06-02-2010 10:49 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Currently ongoing construction is a jewelry box but big enought to be called as armoire. I have done it in 3 sectors: the foot, the lower drawers, and the top drawers. THE FOOTThe first difficulty is to decide whether I can make a short cabriole leg for the front. That was a long process due Narra that I have is medium hard. Additionally, I dont have bandsaw and I have to use jigsaw. I bought 4 inch jigsaw blade. It was not a perfect one but it was okay. The secret chamber will also...

Raised Garden Fencing #2: 8 Done, 4 To Go

06-02-2010 07:17 AM by BlankMan | 5 comments »

Well I got the eight 10 footers done, now have to make the four 4 footers. Got the rest of the Red Cedar cut and milled too. This little project has set me back $175 for the Western Cedar, on sale at that, and $30 for the Stainless Steel Screws so far. Good thing I didn’t do a cost analysis first. It just kinda amazes me that I dropped 200 bucks on something this simple, hope it works and lasts. If nothing else it will look better and make it easier to tend the gardens so at least it ha...

Workbench #3: It is finished. The end of the workbench Journey. (for now)

06-02-2010 07:07 AM by Gatsby1923 | 9 comments »

It has been more than a month since I posted my last blog here on the workbench. I kept meaning to post but I always thought I was one weekend away from being done. For all purposes the bench is done now. Yes I need to touch up one of the jaws of the end vise and drill two dog holes in the other jaw’s pad but I do consider it done now. Yes, the bench is based on the Popular Woodworking LVL (glubou) workbench but it has taken on it’s own spirit. The top and leg vice are Oak, the e...
