The Start of a Challenge #2: So now that I've kinda figured out this blogging series thing...

11-11-2010 09:58 PM by rhybeka | 2 comments »

hard to believe I started this project 193 days ago and it’s still a pretty rough project. School, and a master bathroom remodel have taken me away…that and I hit a brick wall when the wood is cut to the dimensions required but…somethings causing the case to be 1/2 inch too long, and I’ve got an extra 2 inches inside the case… still not certain how it’s happened, but I’m moving on to get it done…we need this piece sooner rather than later and th...

Trestle Table Desks #2: Additional Mortising, air control, mortiser lube, A-Town apron

11-11-2010 08:06 PM by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

The second run of mortises is in the legs. The tenoned rails will surround the juniper panels. Rather than squirt the air after each two holes, I looped a hose clamp around the air gun and trigger and used a nut driver to control it. (Nut driver is resting on the screw for the photo only.) It didn’t take much air to keep the work area clean. It was easier to get a bore – slide – bore – stack flow going when there was no interruption to work the air. The mortis...

Hardy Thank You

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. . .” Thomas Paine, 1776. Thanks to all my fellow vets and to those that are currently serving!

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #3: Shaping the handle

11-11-2010 05:53 PM by mpounders | 10 comments »

It is usually easier to drill any holes needed in the handle before you actually start shaping it. I just clamp it up and use the drill press to drill my holes…. the one in the shaft is usually drilled with a cordless drill. I like to use a 5/16 or larger threaded rod to join the handles to the shaft. Some people prefer wooden tenons and use it as part of the design with an exposed wedged tenon. You do have to carve or shape that tenon on the shaft unless you use a wooden dowel. I pref...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #161: Handling Errors

11-11-2010 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I had two very different incidents which involved errors and customer service. With the economy as it is in such a precarious position, I would think that each and every business would strive to give the best customer service possible. One place I felt passed the test. The other failed miserably. I thought it was interesting how things were handled so differently in the two instances. I thought they were worth sharing. A couple of weeks ago, I ran out of checks from my Chica...
