My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #79: Finding Balance (sigh!) Again

08-21-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

How quickly things can sneak up on us! There are times that I wonder if it is something I do to myself, or is it just life’s way of keeping us on our toes. I guess when I find the true answer to that, I will be well on my way to having “all the answers”. (That was a joke – not an arrogant comment. I know that sometimes when I write things, my subtle sarcasm can get lost in the print) I want a 48 hour day. I guess the realist in me knows that that isn’t g...

Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates

08-21-2010 05:50 AM by RonPeters | 5 comments »

I recently found this design video. The music is a bit dated. I thought folks here would appreciate a hands on design method. Notice the French curves and dividers…no autocad here! Follow the process of designing a bottle decanter from start to finish. Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates on Vimeo.

Extremely Average #229: Shattered Jig or I Need Your Help

08-21-2010 05:16 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

Hello All, I had a brief disaster in the shop today, and as such, exploded my spline cutting jig. Sometimes that happens. On another not, my herd of boxes is nearly finished…I hope…though the finishing stages do seem to be dragging on…but I digress. A couple of people have expressed interest in my tiny boxes. I had not planned on selling any of them, but now I think I might be willing to part with a few of them. Which presents a bit of a quandary, how much should I...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #11: The Actual "Butcher Block" part of the table...

08-21-2010 03:36 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Lots of cutting the last 2 nights… It’s not glued yet, the clamps are just there to help me hold it together and measure stuff. Tomorrow I’ll start gluing the strips up 6 or so at a time, and run them through the jointer/planer all at once to ensure they’re the proper thickness. Right now, they’re just over 1” thick, so hopefully when I’m done they won’t be 1/2”... I’ve bailed on the end-grain idea – this is going ...

Table Saw Kickback

08-20-2010 10:47 PM by dustyal | 27 comments »

I fought the saw and the saw won. As it will 100% of the time. So, I thought I would post this blog to remind everyone that it happens. Actually, this is the first kick back that I have experienced. I know why it happens. I know how to prevent the likelihood that it will happen. I use caution. But, it happened anyway. It threw a 18 X 20 piece of 3/4 ply at me, frisbee style. It so torqued the saw blade on the arbor shaft, that I cannot remove the nut to remove the blade to inspect fo...

Handmade Portraits #5: Handmade Portraits: Jason Tennant

08-20-2010 09:30 PM by Etsy | 5 comments »

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.” — William Blake, Letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799 Jason Tennant is grounded. He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...

I built me a clamp rack added some more shelfs, and bought me two 36’’ heavy duty clamps by Jorgensen made in the USA. I still have a couple of shop projects I wont to do! A hand tool workbench and a Norm Abram style router table.

How to Create Dentil Mouldings on the Dado Sled

08-20-2010 08:46 PM by Bob Simmons | 11 comments »

Dentil mouldings are a distinctive member of the classical moulding family. Often you will see a distinguished building and then when you look up to view the architectural moulding of the cornice you will very often see dentils as one of the cornice members. The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...
