Picture Frames #1: its a start

09-07-2010 03:15 AM by Camper | 0 comments »

I had asked about a recommendation for what wood to use for these picture frames in another post . Finally got some walnut and started it this weekend. Started out with 2 3-4”-8’ boards from which I cut out 3 36” long pieces. I need to make 3 frames which are 12”x18” and around 1.5” wide. Figuring 12” was too short to plane, I decided 36” would be manageable size and each piece would give me one frame when I cut the ends with snipe off. Since...

Holtzapffel Workbench #1: My First Mortise

09-07-2010 02:08 AM by jcontract | 6 comments »

I’ll classify today as the first day of building the base for my bench. Beginning this weekend I tried a practice mortise, since I’ve never tried this before. I have to say that I find mortise and tenons a bit intimidating. I’ve seen the demonstrations of the pros, and how they fly through then with just a chisel, and thy’re perfect within a few minutes. Even the article I’m using to guide me through this one says, drill and chsile mortises are a little slow goi...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #3: Jam Chuckin' my way to the Christmas Tree.

09-07-2010 01:30 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

We woodworkers are a thrifty, if not funny bunch. Small bits of hardwood, no matter how small or seemingly useless, just don’t make it to the scrap bin or the burn pile. I had these two small pieces of mesquite – barely an inch and a half across by half an inch thick. Not really good for much, but the grain was so nice, I had to think of something… and think I did. Well, not think so much, as have an idea hit me when I wasn’t looking for one. (That’s how you ...

Timber Shows... #1: Starting at the beginning.

09-07-2010 01:00 AM by degoose | 3 comments »

They tell me that the best place to start is the beginning… so that is where I will start…I have been going to Timber and Working with Wood shows for many years but only in the last 12 months have I been fortunate enough to be part of the exhibitors side of these Shows… I got to go to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and now Canberra… There is a lot of organising to do to get to one of these shows… it is not just getting up early and catching a plane…doing ...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: They call it labor day for a reason....

09-06-2010 10:14 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto… First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out. Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be. Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed i...
