New lease on life...some assembly required

01-05-2009 03:08 AM by Shopsmithtom | 8 comments »

In a previous blog, I mentioned getting a hold of several older Shopsmiths in various stages of disrepair. My goal was to make enough on the resale of a couple to keep a couple of the accessories that came with. I have an acquaintance who expressed an interest, so this first project goes to him. By serial #, this machine dates to about 1957, and although the before pic makes it look pretty bad, it was all there and only needed a new gilmer belt for the variable speed drive. They switched t...

Child's Ash Bed #1: Legs and Footboard

01-05-2009 12:34 AM by TheCaver | 4 comments »

I didn’t start documenting the build for this until today as a few people from here and Facebook requested it (hence the extra info for non-woodworkers), so many steps have been skipped….including milling the parts from a huge 12 inch by 16 foot American White Ash board (I need another one for the headboard, luckily, my local supplier has a bunch of them and they are not selling well…good for me!) Not many people like Ash due to its white color (looks cheap) and splintery...

Wood Magazine Display Case #7: Getting it finished

01-04-2009 11:29 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well the finishing is coming along nicely, I forgot I needed to do the door. So the case has 3 coats and now the back of the door has 1. Got my side of the garage cleaned up so that I can move the door over to my side and the SO can get her car in the garage again. I still have to order the glass and mirror. Gonna give lowe’s custom order a try as well as a place in dagsboro near Bodies…we’ll see how it goes.

Thanks to Lumberjocks!

01-04-2009 11:14 PM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 0 comments »

I just wanted to say thanks to Lumberjocks—the people that make the site happen and participate often. Lumberjocks helped reignite my interest in woodworking and all of you have improved my shop safety, tool setup, design skills, build skills, and finishing skills. You’ve also made me laugh, helped me find good deals on tools, and inspired me to get better at hand tool work. I look forward to another great year with all my woodworking buddies!

My Puffy Face... Allergic Reaction to Bloodwood

01-04-2009 11:04 PM by Blake | 26 comments »

I had been working on my Gun Cleaning Box for about a month leading up to Christmas. My wife kept asking me why I was scratching my arms, face and neck during that time but I couldn’t put a finger on the cause. The scratching started out very slowly and was never bad enough for me to even think about it too much. I finished the box before Christmas and haven’t been in the shop for over a week. Then the other day I went out there for about half an hour to work on a small project...

Oak Dresser Restoration #1: Initial Inspection & A Pleasant Surprise

01-04-2009 11:01 PM by Mark D. | 5 comments »

My girlfriend and I have been on a quest to find an affordable small dresser for our room. I’m not yet confident enough to build one from scratch in a style that would lend itself well to our other furniture in the room. After two months of searching craigslist and ebay, I ran across a craigslist posting for a “1920’s Oak Dresser” There was no photo on the listing but it stated that one of the large drawers was missing the bottom panel, and that it would need to be...

Herman Miller Design and Production Video

01-04-2009 08:11 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

What I should be doing… is getting my shop in order because I got a truckload of wood and sheet goods from guy that was moving his shop. I have a built-in banquette to get going on in the shop now that the holidays and family mayhem are behind us (in a good grandkids way.) I found gold! Actually what I found was a Herman Miller prduction video while digging through the Furnitude blog by LJ member Mitch. I just LOVE Herman Miller. What is very important about this video is th...

New Masters

01-04-2009 07:18 PM by Rogue | 1 comment »

I found my christmas present to myself in a hastings on the way to Spokane Wa for christmas. It was “The New Masters of Woodtuning” not to be confused with “The Masters of Woodturning” printed about 15 years ago. This is a great book not only for turners but for woodworkers period. Many of the artists in this book touched on something that I found important when designing. I was reminded of it as I was commentting on a fellow jocks blog. A true artisan who is devo...

Getting Started

01-04-2009 06:02 PM by cmckerliesr | 1 comment »

For now I am tying part of this blog into my workshop page as there is a lot of current information there about my workshop and where it stands today. But as I go on, I will include information here as to what it is like to work inside a large metal box as the weather changes and as things become more organized. But at this time I am going to keep it brief as this is my first entry and I would just be repeating what is currently on the my workshop page. Let me start too by telling you t...
