It took awhile to get here – but the BUS has finally arrived and what a smooth ride!I found a piece of scrap Rosewood that had some burn marks on it and was just really rough. I don’t know if this photo will show enough detail. I made a few passes and the results were incredible – right out of the box, no honing or sharpening – the finish is as smooth as glass. I don’t think that it is quite good enough for a finish, but this was only after a couple of light ...
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was recently inspired to build a period reproduction piece of furniture. I chose to do a side table in the Queen Anne style based on a Glen Huey design with cabriole legs, scrolled aprons and a single drawer. I like this style and it poses some challenges in developing new skills. The picture is Glen Huey’s version. I’ve started down the path of building this piece and I hope that you’ll follow along as I post entries about its de...
Fellow Lumberjocks…. I have been part of several projects and had some very unique experiences. My woodworking, stained glass, and various other assortment of hobbies have certainly given me very rich and full filling experiences. I love what I do and am lucky for the most part I can do what I love. For that I am great full. In the back of my mind I am always thinking….(scary I know) about then next project, task, dream, or “honey do list” and what need...
Today Dec 1, 2007 was the toy giveaway day for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers Club Toy Workshop. We make toys all year long and we pass them out on the first Sat in December. This is the 13 yr that it has been done. It’s grown is scope but we are still looking for people that want to volunteer to make toys. We meet on every Wednesday of the year. Our first day for the 2008 toy making in this coming Wednesday. We had about 18 charities that showed up today. We had over 1200 toys to di...
Let me know if you will be going to the Balitmore woodworking show on Jan 4-6
(rear of mobile base) Once a year a local lumberyard puts on a BBQ for our wood working club and they have a bunch of really good deals on wood they want to move. I p/u some western maple at a good price and a sheet of pre-finished birch plywood for a steal. This is the material for the runout table. I have a small shop so the table must be small, mobile and the half behind the extension needs to fold down.
See project #1 It is a 2×2x3/16 angle iron frame with 4×2 casters. The front curves to match the front of the SawStop. The back extends to support the runout table.
Theres good news for anyone who feels they don’t match up to “elite” status as a woodworker.The song “Louie Louie” has three chords and is more recognisable than most acclaimed symphonies! We shouldn’t confuse expertise in precision with the pinnacle of success. I could spend four months on a kick ass table, seeking out praise from my peers. I just probably couldn’t sell it for enough to be “successful”. Woodworking, like life, is ab...
Wordy Wooder ....being born this way with a head filled full of words, and then next came the realization that my hands were created, to give expression to the images that swirled around within, while playing the part of verbal misfit, until the day my morning opened up and I saw wood…. One ought to ask them-selves first of all, who-what-where-when and how do I fit in? Without asking these questions that same one will fall prey, to all the other’s coming along and across one...
