I think all of us may think it is sometimes wise to stop typing and just do what are the things to do. I almost forgotten this series. But I do read still but did not bother to update. A recap on the second day of this boxes….Previous weekend I was travelling to the North that was Saturday… The cremation done last Monday and back to Manila. It was only Tuesday that I had faced the second day of this rush boxes.. On that day, I was able to sort out some wood and made the si...
It’s 8am in the woodworking shop and a quick scan shows the havoc in charge of things. The miter saw has a growing companion – the drops and cutoffs that accumulate as I work. The table saw is more table than saw, the result of stowing things last night so the family car could be parked inside. With a slap to my forehead I notice that I left the bandsaw blade in tension overnight. The leftover materials from the outdoor sign job are still blocking part of the storage shelving. ...
I’m proud to announce one of the greatest LumberJocks upgrades ever. Technical and user experience implementation raises the bar again and it also solves quite a few site bottlenecks with ease. These bottlenecks were the main driving force behind this upgrade but I’m very excited with how this makes LJ easier and faster to use. It even brings sort of artificial intelligence to your browsing experience here. Hope you will find it a pleasure to use down the road too. So first let...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #44: Not Really Woodworking (Kinda/sorta, but not really)
As I woke up this morning and looked at the clock the first thought in my head was “oh, my!” It was already past 7. I don’t know why I have myself conditioned to get up so early, even if I am not pressed. Maybe it is because I have the most control of things early in the morning before everyone else gets up and things happen that disrupt the day. Those of you who read often know how much I love the quiet of the morning. Today, I am sharing it with Mozart and some Glen G...
I was playing with Bonzai3D lately, and must say that the workflow and the built-in basic functionality of the app blows me away more and more. Before I used SketchUp I used Alias|Wavefront Maya (now owned by Autocad’s Autodesk) but Maya is designed for animation and film work and was seriously lacking when it comes to product design. Working with Bonzai feels like home with all the benefits of design elements plus so much more. The only thing I’m missing in Bonzai3d are the pl...
Well in this installment I apparently did a bunch of things funny how you have to do that to keep a project going. So in order of accomplishments Carved under arms Worked a bunch on the headrest Worked a bunch on the back braces Sanded, sanded, and sanded head rest Sanded and sanded ….... and sanded back braces Sanded and sanded chair in many spots but getting closer Installed back braces with head rest and drilled holds attached with screws and placed temporaril...
So here’s the project I’ve been working on today, a little dull but it had to be done. It’s a bunch of sample doors because customers are always curious about the different types of woods and it’s hard to give a good example sometimes. Originally I was going to make them different styles but for the sake of consistency and because it’s usually just the wood people are undecided on, I decided to make them all the same. So here they are, I will be staining and f...
Hello LJ buddies, I spent most of my shop time, fussing about making some very precise cuts. My router table jig has become one of my favorite things in the shop, and it severed me well today. Finally…the blog is done…it is exceptionally mediocre tonight. Sorry. http://su.pr/50vqIM Brian
As I read all the workbench design and construction information that I can get my hands on, I find myself gravitating toward the old English joiners style of work bench. Simplicity seems to be the main idea with these benches. All of my woodworking to date has been powertool woodworking, but I am trying to get into some handtool woodworking. To that end, I think that I will design an English (Nicholson) style bench with wide front and rear aprons, but not quite as wide as what is typically fo...
I recently posted a question about bandsaws in one of the forums and I received tons of great information and advice. The forthcoming and helpful nature of all the guys and gals on this site never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, I stumbled upon a store here in Nashville that I was completely unaware of…General Industrial Supply. I decided to stop in after work yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I picked up a 12” JET bandsaw from their “scratch & dent” area and I only f...
