Tree IDs #10: North Hollywood Park

05-17-2010 07:04 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

On my first few drives to my new job way up in North Hollywood I passed by a large, grassy park loaded up with – by my standards – enormous trees. I vowed to check them out, and on Wednesday of last week, I took a lunchtime walk down there. It’s only a few blocks, though they are large, city blocks. It’s probably not a full 10-minute walk, so it’s not bad. Looking it up later, I learned that it’s North Hollywood Park. The Days of Our Lives cast did a ...

My Roubo Build #7: Some Considerations Along the Way, or a Cry for Help

05-17-2010 06:55 AM by naomi weiss | 18 comments »

As i have been building this thing, i have had my nose in the Schwarz’s book. However, i cringed when during my review i read this: Once you look at the characteristics that make a species good for a workbench, you see that white oak, Southern yellow pine, fir, poplar or just about any species (excepting bass wood and the soft white pines) will perform brilliantly. (p.14) And for some salt in the wound: Anyone who has purchased a white pine 2×4 bench from a home center can...

Novice Rambling Quickie #3: Managing Time

05-17-2010 06:17 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 1 comment »

A little on my struggle to manage time, projects and patience. >>May 25 Edit – I have gone back and copied the entire post over.<< —Time is a cruel task master. While most things happens in its own time, I remember reading that man has this obsessive need to compartmentalize it into many segments. Milena, centuries, decades, years, months, days, etc. It’s been 3 hours since I had dinner. 16 days to the 5th year anniversary of meeting my wife. A sidereal day is 23...

The Great Woodshop Redo

05-17-2010 04:57 AM by PASs | 2 comments »

This is the last will and testament of my sure to be over budget, behind schedule attempt to bring order to the chaos that is my shop/garage. I started this project last weekend but was too ashamed, and tired to actually blog it. But I think the blogging will help my psychosis.I’m sure I’ll rewrite things in following posts. But the creative juices are flowing (64 ounces of Diet Dr Pepper can do that to your brain) so I’m diving in. Buckle up….cause this train has no t...

Weekend "Arts and Crafts" side table

05-17-2010 04:03 AM by Blue Mountain Woods | 16 comments »

I have Arts and Crafts in quotes, because I woke up this morning and decided to get rid of some scrap. The result is that the only thing Arts and Crafts about this thing is some of the joints and profiles used. It’s meranti with purpleheart pins. Stickley’s laughing from his grave, but I’m having more fun than he is.Still have to shoulder the tenons prior to final. Also, haven’t really decided whether or not to radius the apron. Suggestions welcome!

crushed glass bottle as creative wood filler?

05-17-2010 03:58 AM by Richard | 7 comments »

I ‘ve been working with some blue-stained lodge pole pine and I have a few knots with cracks and voids in them. I am thinking of filling the large cracks with some bright blue glass from an old bottle. I plan on crushing the glass to a fine powder (I don’t know how fine to crush), also what kind of adhesive should I use to attach my “glass putty” to my project? Thanks for your suggestions
