A Journey, and a long but really good heartwarming story!

08-05-2010 08:21 PM by Joe Kimmell | 7 comments »

For the last five years, my wife has worked as a home care assistant for an 82 year old woman with Alzheimer’s named Jenny. Over these years I’ve also been the resident handyman/painter, etc. Jenny & Ed, her passed-on husband, were very prosperous pork producers here in Southeastern Indiana & Ed was an avid, albeit primitive, woodworker. When Ed passed in 2004, the farm acreage was sold to a neighbor, but the house, 2 outbuildings, and 3-1/2 acres were retained….J...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #63: Starting To See A Change

08-05-2010 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

All in all it has been a rather quiet week. I guess by quiet it means that there have been no disasters or anything like that. I have been working on a new set of ornaments and drawing for the past several days, but I have also been doing lots of organizational stuff and things on the site and filling orders and such that have really filled the days for me. I got my July figures from my largest wholesaler yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. So far for this year, it was my best sho...

Novice Rambling Quickie #6: A new bench

08-05-2010 05:32 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 7 comments »

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up the lumber for my workbench project. Not maple, not beech, not birch, not even southern yellow pine. That’s right, I’m making it out of local SPF – Spruce/Pine/Fir. You see, to make a bench out of hardwood, the top alone is going to cost over $300 clams. I just can’t afford that right now, but I have a growing ‘honey-do’ list and I need something better than a piece of plywood on sawhorses because of my growing l...

Neighbors bathroom #4: Progress: Drawer Fronts

08-05-2010 05:28 AM by GregP | 3 comments »

Today I flush cut, sanded and chamfered the boxes, I also cut the drawer fronts out. It’s starting to look like something now. Will probably put some aniline dye on tomorrow and maybe make some drawers, There are eight so it will be somewhat tedious. My garage is getting pretty tight now, the pantry will probably be out of there soon though didn’t do a blog on it but will probably post it in completed projects pretty soon, I have to cut some granite and then I can install it. ...

Hello All, Today’s blog was one of the longest I have ever written. I had a lot to share today, several good pictures. I don’t think there has been a day I have enjoyed, year to date, as much as I enjoyed today’s time in the shop. Brian

Not quite in the workshop... #22: Been gone a while, not much, but some done...

08-05-2010 03:44 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

Okay so it is REALLY hard for a guy with a wok shop in League City Texas to work on his shop when he is in Dallas Texas and in various points in Oregon, you see, I have been out for the last 2 weeks… But all is good. I got back from Portland last night at about 10:00, got my full work day in, and even managed to get at least ONE thing done for my shop, well indirectly for my shop. After coming home from work, taking the wife out to dinner (nothing left in the fridge to cook) I gave t...
