Crafts Shows R Us #1: Part 1

2101 days ago by closetguy | 6 comments »

I keep getting a lot of private messages from Lumberjocks asking questions about my boards and selling at shows so I decided to start talking about my experiences this year and maybe it will help those who want start the show circuit or are trying to decide if it’s for them. I consider myself a newbie at it since I just started this year and I know there are a lot of jocks that have been doing shows for years, so I don’t intend to write a “how to” guide, but document my journey into this car...

30 projects in 30 days #1: intro

2101 days ago by scottb | 10 comments »

Off and on, over the past few years I had the idea to try to do a series of projects over the course of a week or so…. like 12 Christmas ornaments in 12 days, or a bunch of pens leading up to graduation time…. I’ve been pretty good about getting set up to make a bunch of pens, and then not having enough free time or energy to do anything about it… or conversely, having the idea a wee bit too late, and then totally forgetting about it until it was too late again the nex...

Ghost #3: Part III – Revenge of the Ghost

2101 days ago by Zuki | 2 comments »

All good horror flicks come in threes . . . so the blog will end after the third instalment. I had DW sketch out a couple of eyes on the head of the ghost as my freehand for circles is shaky at best. I then broke out the plunge router and my newly purchased upcut spiral bit from Lee Valley (shameless plug for sponsor – wink wink) to gouge out the eyes. After blackening the ghost’s eyes it was on to the assembly and voila . . . I have a Ghost Sign. My creative j...

1950s church pews #1: a house full of pews!

2101 days ago by scottb | 8 comments »

These have been on my front porch for a couple weeks now, had to do something with them while the weather was still nice. So today I began dismantling them, luckily they were built in a shop, and assembled on site. The seat and back were mortised into the side panels, and everything was held together with wood screws, under tacked on pieces of trim. They came apart pretty easily, and I’m hoping the shorter bench I’m building goes back together just as easily. I’d mista...

Solar kiln #1: from design to construction

2101 days ago by Julian | 12 comments »

A few years ago, I had the idea of building a small solar kiln. Well, life happened, and I didn’t have the time or money to build one. Then two weeks ago, my neighbor had a red elm cut down that had been struck by lighning earlier in the spring. I figured that a beautiful elm tree would never just fall into my lap, so I had the tree removal service roll the 8’, 30”+ main trunk into my front yard. After having it milled, I realized that I couldn’t wait an entire year to...

inlaying a hair comb

2101 days ago by Valerii | 8 comments »

Well, finally I did this. The brief process of inlaying a hair comb right here.Of course first I need a sketch on my comb and my wife do it for me: Next step is cutting a groove for the brass ribbon: Then I use a lathe for cutting a mother of pearl: After this phase I cut a space for mother of pearl peaces: And the final steps are grinding and polishing the comb. Usually I use a dentist`s drill for these operations. And after that I have the comb in bee...

Sylvia's Studio #2: Book Cases by window, How to fix?

2101 days ago by Rob Drown | 10 comments »

I am building two bookcases for either side of the window in Sylvia’s Scrapbooking Studio. They are 92×36x13 nominal. There is a 31.5” high base and a 60.5” upper. 4 pieces total. She wanted them painted black so i decided to use poplar. Everything was going great till the third glue up. We were hurring because of the glue setup time and put the left side on up side down. Having the pieces marked as to orientation would have prevented this but here I am. Wha...

Project with the Kids #2: Bird Nesting Boxes

2101 days ago by darryl | 7 comments »

My two younger daughters, ages 7 and 4, are always interested in working with me in the shop. I thought it might be fun to make a couple of birdhouses with them. After looking around on the internet a little bit to learn what size and style to go with, I settled on a style called nesting boxes. From what I understand, a nesting box is design more for the actual birds needs rather than going with a traditional “house” type design that is typically made.Click here for one of the websites I used...
