The Studio Furniture Movement #2

09-01-2010 12:50 AM by DocSavage45 | 5 comments »

Just found “Art for Everyday by Patricia Conway 1990. She has done an excellent job of exploring furniture as functional art. Furniture has always served as functional. the Arts and Crafts movement had a big effect on putting the man/person back into the equation. architechs like Wright, designed furniture to be part of the art of his designs. Beautiful pieces that are not very comfortable to sit in. The Arts and Crafts movement ended in 1919. The Bau Haus inspired new ideas in fur...

127 - To Kill a Vampire

08-31-2010 06:50 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Turning on the lathe is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of woodworking. Every time I turn I ask myself, “Why don’t I do this more often??” I still don’t have an answer to that. But recently, I had the opportunity to turn a cool item for a charity event. My friend Shawn was creating unique auctions for a Muscular Dystrophy charity event. One of those auctions was for a vampire...

"Warehouse" Shelving #1: Introduction

08-31-2010 06:17 PM by Trimble | 2 comments »

Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...

Putting it all back together

08-31-2010 05:17 PM by bigfish_95008 | 4 comments »

In a previous note here, Packing up the shop – again, I mentioned that we needed to move for several reasons. Well the first week of August we moved from the old place to the new. We have been setting up house and shop. We moved to a smaller house, but still have 2 garage bays. Having a wall separating the 2 sides is almost a blessing. There is more wall space to hang stuff from and I don’t have 220VAC so I can’t set up the Unisaw with 52” fence so having the width is ...

Delta Scroll Saw--Questions

08-31-2010 04:17 PM by Geedubs | 19 comments »

I just picked up a used Delta 40-560 scroll saw for $40 off of Craigslist…that frugal marketplace for the carefully adventurous. It needed some cleanup, including a thorough cleaning of the table with Simple Green, sandpaper and wax. It now looks pretty darned good although it looks like I have to realign the table to the blade. My concerns are primarily related to the blade. Being a scroll saw virgin, I did not know anything about traditional chucks vs. quickset chucks. Although t...

SPIRAL DESIGN #2: The construction...Selection of wood

08-31-2010 03:45 PM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #89: Back to the Shop!

08-31-2010 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...
