A Woodworking Hiatus

07-17-2010 03:51 AM by OttoH | 3 comments »

Well I am going to be out of the shop and going through withdrawals for a few weeks. I am hopping a plane to Gateshead England, in the morning for a three-week business trip. When I return I am off to Fort Sill Oklahoma, to see my daughter graduate from Army Boot Camp. Then it is off to the in-laws in South Dakota for a few days, finally I return to Texas on the 20th of August when I can get back into my shop after a 34-day hiatus. I shall try to log on to LumberJocks from time to time ...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #6: Day 6 The final day

07-17-2010 02:32 AM by doorslammer | 5 comments »

Today was the last day of class in the morning. My priority was to get my bent lamination out of the jig and begin to fit and shape it. Due to the layout of my T nuts I wasn’t able to get as dramatic curves as I was hoping for but I think it turned out well none the less. After some final sanding I attached the back to the chair. I plan on plugging the screw holes with some walnut plugs but I think I’m going to finish both surfaces where they mate with at least one coat ...

I got the itch to do a little photography (one of my past hobbies) in the shop. The wood is spinning at about 1000 rpm.

Lifestyle Priorities as a Woodworker

07-17-2010 12:10 AM by poopiekat | 6 comments »

As I get older, I look around at my fairly well-equipped workshop, and I start to get overwhelmed. There are sets of wooden legs that have no project to belong to, some tools in various stages of disassembly, lumber I’ve saved for projects I may never get to. My attention gets all scattered. I know I’ve gotta re-focus, get my priorities straightened out, and get the stuff done that needs to be done, and get myself unburdened from the less important tasks hanging over my head. ...

Just for Fun... #26: A Productive Weekend...

07-16-2010 11:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

Of course, working in the Restaurant Biz, I mean the last few days… I ended up getting in about 9-10 hours on this latest box, and except for some small detail work, it’s just about ready for some finishing…If you’ll recall, I left off Wednesday having glued the hinges in place…I began yesterday morning by pinning them into place with wooden dowel, and cutting off the excess with my trusty “Poor Man’s” Japanese Saw. Notice the finely crafted han...

Fingers vs Router

07-16-2010 11:21 PM by BillyJ | 23 comments »

Stupidity? No, just a momentary lapse of of concentration. Actually, carelessness is probably the correct word. However, I’ll stick with dumb azz as my personal description. I prided myself for having all of my fingers – and I still do. Unfortunately, I am now missing the tips (the sides to be specific). It happened so fast, all I felt was the bouncing of my fingers on the cutter, and the spray of blood going through the air out of the corner of my eye. I was cutting the ...

Scrap Lumber

07-16-2010 05:49 PM by canadianchips | 3 comments »

Picked up my lodgepole pine posts from a orchard this morning. They bring in LOT sizes for there tree’s.(10ft. x 2” dia.) I drove by thinking I wonder if they sell them, they are the size I use for my log chairs and patio furniture. I had been buying larger diameter posts from Lumber yard and splitting them into 1/3 then running them through my “homemade dowel maker.” Was a lot of extra work and wasted a fair amount of material.(Fun the first day, then it became work !...
