A journey into the workshop. #71: Working the kinks out...

09-23-2010 06:03 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Of my back, and my shop… I spent a little bit, honestly not very much, but a little bit of time last night doing some light cleanup in the shop. Mostly moving small cutoffs out and into the rolling trash bin, so that I can, when I am up to it, install the shelving on the proper wall and get the junk off of my benches and floor! The boat still hangs precariously from one support as my back has not been up to finishing the removal process quite yet. Close, but I don’t want to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #112: Back to Reality (In a good way!)

09-23-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I thoroughly enjoyed writing yesterday’s post and appreciate all the kind comments on it. It was fun and made the project so much more personal and meaningful to me. I like when my mind wanders like that. (and yes, it was substance-free!) and it feels good to be able to think of such enchanting existences. For me it was a mini-vacation and I thank you all for joining me. Today it is time to return to the real world, however. Last night at 7:49pm I received an email message from t...

Octagonal side table #1: Pattern Routing Challenge

09-23-2010 08:04 AM by lanwater | 5 comments »

Few months ago I built an octagonal table (not my design) and did not assemble it because I was not satisfied with the legs. I also had problems with the finish. Problem #1: The finish The Wood used is white oak and because it’s so porous I never got a flat top. I kept builling layer of polyuratane but that did not work. I Sanded off the finish. I then put on 1 layer, leave it to dry, sand it down but not completely. Put the second and the third following the same procedur...

I've got crabs

09-23-2010 06:36 AM by kolwdwrkr | 7 comments »

Yep, you heard it right. I’ve got crabs. Well a crab, and it’s form. I was doing a glue up with some resin glueand decided to put some of it into a form. The form is a crab, and not really a form. It’s a sand toy. You press it into wet sand like a cookie cutter, lift, and low and behold you have a crab that crumbles apart as you lift the plastic off. Yippie. I love the look of frustrated children as they throw a crumbled crab. LOLI let Heidi press it into the form. ...

a tool question

09-23-2010 05:55 AM by BigTiny | 5 comments »

Greetings all. A local buy/sell site has an ad for a ‘Stanley wood tool, complete and in good working condition.” The accompanying pictures show what looks like a plow plane of sorts, with the Stanley name embossed on it and the number 45 on one of the pieces, Anyone know what this might be and what it is worth? I’m tempted, but know absolutely nothing about it and don’t want to over bid on it, no matter how much I love old tools.

Cut twice and still too short!! What's yours?

09-23-2010 05:48 AM by ocwoodworker | 18 comments »

Sometimes I feel like I am sleeping with the enemy (and I’m not talking about the wife) It’s that other person in bed. the one who snores…. I am plagued with bad penmanship and feel like using a calculator is beneath me, hence I suffer from “1’s” that look like “2’s” and half of 37 isn’t 16-1/2” !! Mix those two together and it is recipe for making firewood. I tried to make cabinet doors for my wife and saw the error of my ...
