Woodworking drugs

06-19-2010 08:08 PM by Shawn Sealer | 12 comments »

These last couple of months have been so hectic I have had hardly any shop time what so ever. I start to long for my shop the way you long for home when you are away for a long time. Am I alone in this or is it something that happens to every woodworking hobbyist? I found myself putsing in the shop the other day. I knew I only had about 20 min so I didn’t want to start anything, I put away a couple of things and then started to plane the edge of a pine scrap board for no reason. Just d...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #7: Cutting rabbet's for the mirror

06-19-2010 06:25 PM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

Now that the frame is has the morise and tenon’s complete I want to cut the rabbet’s before I permanently assemble it. I am just using my rabbet plane with a batten to keep me straight and at 90 degree. I noticed that as I worked down the rabbet slowly worked away from the batten. The next one I do i’m going to set the nicher down and see if it helps keep things on track better. Any tips on this would help. here is a photo of cutting the rabbet. and here is a shot of...

06-19-2010 04:02 PM by Seer | 1 comment »

Well after 1 week I have made a sale, the Canarywood Box is gone to special friends lady friend and I am sure she will treasure it.

When LumberJocks meet....

06-19-2010 03:13 PM by NBeener | 13 comments »

I’m not going to spend TOO much time touting the skills, the talent, the successes, or the infectious personalities of these two gents, but …. Yesterday, I spent a few hours with Eli Cleveland and Tommy MacDonald,, in their shop, not all that far from Boston. From their respective websites—as you’ll now notice—I DID know they were a couple of talented woodworkers. But what I didn’t know is this: CLICK ME The people I really DID meet are Ameri...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #17: Hittin' the Road!

06-19-2010 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

“Too much of even a good thing isn’t good.” Sometimes even if we love what we do, we need a change of pace to keep things exciting and fresh. My scientific mind decided to test that theory and I will certainly let you all know the results. I haven’t been accomplishing what I want lately and I think it is time to take a step back and do something completely unrelated to woodworking and computers today. (Already I am cheating, writing this!) The sun is shining, the...

Starting up a workshop the second time around. #3: Sometimes you win.....

06-19-2010 05:52 AM by David Kirtley | 3 comments »

Well, I was almost finished with my bow saw project. I had finished the frame and finally got around to making the handles tonight. Well, I was trying to make the handles tonight. I finally got my 4 jaw chuck for my lathe. Apparently, there is going to be more of a learning curve than I was expecting. First of all, I am paranoid of getting a tool hung up in the chuck so I stay away from it. Somehow when I am doing stuff that has a risk of biting me, I go extra slowly and carefully. I ende...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #6: Joints Finished (almost)

06-19-2010 05:23 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I finished trimming and fitting the mortise and tenons tonight. A few were out of square slightly but I was able to adjust them. Now those are a touch loose. I hope the drawboring will snug them back up but we’ll see when I get there. Now on to cutting the rabbit’s for the mirror to fit into. I’ll try to get some pictures of it soon.
