Clipboard #3: Tumbling Dice (blocks)

10-01-2010 06:54 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

Yesterday I left you with a pile of wooden diamonds. Now to make the pattern. I use a template to set out the blocks in this design. Its a simple rectangular grid where the intersection of the lines mark the places where The points of the diamonds should be in the pattern. I used CAD to draw this but pencil and ruler would do just as well. For the 20mm diamond I am using the ‘x’ spacing is 20mm and the ‘y’ spacing 11.547mm (now you see why I use CAD), 11.5mm wil...

Workshop Pictures #2: Pics with a more artistic bent

10-01-2010 02:31 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

Received some proofs of some pics after editing. I really like what Sue did with some of these. This one is my favorite. I love the chips and particles in the air - Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening - I like this pic, though I get teased about it. I am not holding the board with one hand while planing with the other :) I have the board in the vise and I am grasping it lightly for balance. And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictur...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #120: The Power of Attitude

10-01-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Yesterday I did an experiment. I wanted to see if I could make a really great day just ‘happen’. We hear so much about how our attitude affects the outcome of our day (week/month/life) but do we really believe it? Is attitude some magical and mystical force that is dictated by our own thoughts and actions? Or does everything that occurs in our lives just happen by chance? Hummm . . . . . We hear the saying about looking at the glass ‘half empty’ or ‘hal...

Lay the template on the TOP of your block, matching the inside line with the inside edge of your block.With a square, mark your centre register line on both front and back of the block. 4.Draw around the template. 5.

Good morning class and welcome to the Great Lumberjocks Shoe Challenge 2010! When I teach, I abide by the philosophy that nobody knows nothin’ about nothin’. That way I am thorough. However, if you have the knowledge or experience, feel free to cut corners as you wish. Let’s get started! Just to make it difficult, I would like to include all of the aspects of a proper shoe carving, including the laces, so please tie a bow on your shoe and lightly tape it to the sides s...

Just for Fun... #34: Time to make it shiny...

10-01-2010 03:41 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

With all the trouble I had making the top for this small table, the wrap-up was utterly anti-climatic. I was determined to attach the legs with carriage bolts when the top was completed, and so I did…First I clamped the legs one by one, along with the “Sandwiches” (and some scraps to protect the piece!) in place and hand drilled a 1/4” hole through the lot of them…Insert the bolt, tighten the nut over the washer, and these are on there strong enough for me to sta...
