The sunlight dances in amongst the tress..the wind moves slowly like a gentle breeze….the beauty of wood is before our eye’s,the things my friends do …like a gentle surprise..a special note during the busy of a day, there saying hello helps the bad go away, something comes when not expected or known and sometimes they call unexpectedly on the phone…like the beauty of wood they are before my eye’s and the special things they do sometimes makes me cry. Oh how sp...

Holtzapffel Workbench #2: Next Mortising Session

09-12-2010 08:46 PM by jcontract | 7 comments »

Completed the second mortise this weekend. It seems to be getting faster, but I have many more to go. It’s a slow process still cutting them by hand. The first mortise pictured below fits well, hoever I noticed a small hump in the middle of the shoulder which created a slight gap, so I cleaned it up with some light sandpaper. And a shoulder plane goes on the wish list. So one side stretcher in place. And then the next. I’m happy that they they fit pretty well. I th...

Amateur Hour #3: Dirty, dirty...

09-12-2010 04:42 PM by agartzke | 1 comment »

The last couple days have been both refreshing and frustrating. Refreshing because I can see my shop floor, my tools and things are starting to have a sense of order again. Frustrating because I’m the one that has to clean it all! At least I have some motivation… I just recently picked up what I would call a steal of a deal – A Powermatic 1150A 15” Drill press with the Foot Pedal add-on. Got the thing for $350. Not bad, I say! Only challenge is that it must have bee...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #101: Seeing Others Blossom

09-12-2010 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Again, I want to thank you all for the nice comments and private messages regarding my 100th blog post yesterday. I do enjoy talking to you every morning and although every day isn’t filled with making woodworking projects, sometimes it is really nice to share a good story or talk about something totally unrelated. I am happy you all like to read about the other things too. Today I have a good story to tell. I think it is a good story anyway, and it made me feel very happy. A c...

Here’s the pedestal attached to the base. Should make things a little clearer. The pedestal and top will be attached by a thick dowel running through the pedestal from the base to the top. As usual, comments are welcomed.

Timber Shows... #10: Why I go to Timber Shows.......!!

09-12-2010 11:05 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

If you thought … to sell Torque Workcentres, network, meet girls, drink beer and have fun you would be correct but…. One of the main reasons to go to a wood show is to learn more about woodworking…The Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show was no exception… there were a few things I picked up from chatting with various folks at the woodshow…. The one I want to discuss in this post is about the Router Table…and what you can do to make using one jus...

Louis cube top, half pattern in gray scale. Rubik’s cube pedestal. These are still rough, but should give an idea of where I’m heading with all this.
