From the Acanthus Web Site: This two day course covers the basic hand tools used in fine furniture making. Students will learn how to determine a good tool from a bad tool, what tools are really necessary for furniture making, how the tools w...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

This interview is from the November issue of “CreativeHands Network” Newsletter.SnowyRiver has been a member of LumberJocks since November 2008 1. how did you first get started working with wood? I first began building things with wood when I was very young. Probably around 8 or 9. Although my dad was a weekend do-it-yourselfer and not a carpenter, I would help him build things around the house. Things like yard sheds, fences, a gun cabinet, and yard art. Even though he...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #155: Time to Take a Stand

11-05-2010 10:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am writing this blog last night because we decided to high tail it to Halifax in the morning for probably our last trip into the city before winter hits. Today, we went to a new wood place that our friend Bernie recommended today and got some incredibly low priced and high quality hard woods. Among our finds were some nice ash at $2.00 per board foot, some flaming birch for $3.00 per board foot and some curly maple which was also only $3.00 per board foot. We didn’t get a lot bec...

A home for my lumber

11-05-2010 07:03 AM by DavidH | 5 comments »

Recently I cleared up a good bit of space in my shop along one wall when I move all of my Lawn equipment into a new storage shed (The garage is now official called the workshop) The intention for the new found space was a centralized place to organize my lumber rather than having it scattered through out the shop where I trip over it or am constantly having to move it. I decided on a two part solution. One, a horizontal rack built out of 4×4 timbers and 3/4” pipe. The second,...

Scrollsaw Chest Project #4: I'm Seeing The Finish Line

11-05-2010 06:00 AM by William | 4 comments »

Here’s the lid for the chest with the scrolled panels already cut. I’m sure you notice the clamps on the lid. While the glue was drying on this, I went back to do a lot of the sanding on the box that I got too lazy to finish yesterday.This is the complete lid fully assembled. I’ve added the cedar backing to the scroll work. You’ll also notice the rail around the front and sides of the lid that will form a lip over the top of the box when the lid is shut.This is what th...

stream of unconsciousness #1: motivation?

11-05-2010 05:02 AM by jHop | 1 comment »

So, I’m finding it hard to get motivated to get back to the shop. I have a project half assembled, and have just two more pieces to put together, then attach to the base, then finish. Is it just finishing I’m dreading? Or is it more? To get to my corner of the basement, where i’m trying to carve out a workspace, I have to climb over all sorts of stuff I’ve acquired to assist my woodworking. Or, I go the long way around, and have to climb over the piles and piles...

Disaster in the form of a 2yr old

11-05-2010 02:51 AM by doorslammer | 20 comments »

I recently finished my LVL Sitting Bench and delivered it to a local gallery on Tuesday for a “recycled” show. Then last night on my way home from work I get a call from the gallery asking me to come down becuase there was a problem. I arrived to see the following horror,Some lady was in the gallery and evidently let her 2 yr old daughter roam a little to far and ended up taking a ball point pen to the top of my bench. Fortunately, the bruising was mostly superficial, and aft...
