My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #164: Do You Want the Good News First, or the Bad News?

11-14-2010 02:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

I never thought that this type of job would be easy. When I started this blog I explained that I would offer insight to all sides of designing and my business – good and bad. I have been very fortunate that for the most part these past months I have had good days and felt somewhat successful. However, we all know that in the real world there aren’t only good days and that no matter how wonderful things seem when looking in from another side, that more often than not successful ...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #6: Woodburning the leaves

11-14-2010 08:29 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

Once I have the main forms roughed in, the fun begins with doing the details. This is my favorite part, since things really start to look good, to come into focus. Ususally, this part also goes pretty quick, in part because I think I get so involved with it that I ignore everything else and just zoom right through it. And since it is the fun part, sometimes carvers like to get right to this part instead of doing all of the important things that lead up to it. It is real important to block ...

Blog Posts #11: Finishing for Non-Professionals, Part IV

11-14-2010 04:34 AM by JSZ | 0 comments »

Here's the link for the fourth post in this series. We’re at the point where the project needs to be assembled, and the care and deliberation you take in this process is going to pay big dividends when we start to apply the finish. With a project this close to completion there is a tendency to rush things – especially if a deadline (like Christmas) is looming. However, a slipup during the assembly process makes finishing much more difficult. Comments and your own tips are ...

Shipyard Memories #3: The Smaug Blog: Wood Boatbuilding 101, Bending the Ribs

11-14-2010 03:54 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

OK, the time has come to explain the reasons for the jogged frames and the inside and outside ribbands. (I hope I’m not just confusing you) The usual way to set up for ribbing is to make the station frames to fit the inside of the planking. Then the ribbands go outside the frames and the ribs bend entirely inside the boat against the inside of the ribbands, That puts the outer faces of the ribs where they should be, at the inside of the planking. Then stringers are bent inside the ribs....

Once I got the fence upgraded as described in the second blog of this series it was time to get the router table built. Here are some pictures of the granite table added as a right wing to the Ridgid 4511 table saw. Glued up 2” of mdf and laminated top and bottom with leftovers from a local cabinet shop. OK, it’s only as heavy as granite. Here the laminated slab is ready for cutting dados for the mitre and t-tracks. Here are reference lines on masking tape for aligning the insert tem...
