The desk

08-13-2009 07:21 AM by Ben | 2 comments »

When I got married over eight years ago my wife came along with a rather large, white desk, complete with a missing front drawer. As the story goes, this desk was once in the Swedish embassy and was taken home by my mother-in-law when it was no longer needed (probably 25 years ago now). She wanted a white desk, so she painted it. The pictures show some of the condition after many years and moves—a significant cup in the top, the aprons twisted over half an inch. I was all ready to b...

hand carved redwood bench #2: Some progress and an introduction

08-13-2009 05:45 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well the bench is coming along about as slow as possible. Working full time now doesn’t leave much of a window for me to be out there carving. And with some commissioned jobs coming up it will be worse soon. So I’ve been sort of rushing the carving while I’m out there and have to say that I feel somewhat bad, as I am trying to blog how to carve as well. So the tutorial will still happen, but it may not be up par (if they ever are).Right now I want to say that I’ve r...

Condo for kitty, on to upholstery. What am I doing?

08-12-2009 11:20 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

So now that the kitty condo parts are cut, and drilled, pilot holes and such done, the kitty condo, at least the wooden parts are done, now time to upholstery it. Sure this will be easy! (Famous last words.) Start by kicking on the AC in the shop. (Leaving the kitchen door open and blowing cooled air into the garage), and trying to figure out just where that Home Depot bag with the rope is… Next find the nailer. I’m too cheap to own a compressor, so it’s an Arrow el...

My First and Second Set of Hand Cut Dovetails

08-12-2009 10:00 PM by FlWoodRat | 12 comments »

A while back I posted a review of Major League Woodworking’s Home Run 4-Pak. Anyway, my current shop project is a four drawer storage cabinet that sits below my Table Saw. Building this gave me the opportunity to use dovetail joinery for the drawers and putting the 4 Pak to work. After watching Tom McDonalds videos on how to cut DT’s I started hacking away. Below you will see a picture ofmy first attempt at hand cutting DTs. I used the 4-Pack marking gauge to layou...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #3: The Mystery of Sung Hua Stones

08-12-2009 03:47 PM by chscholz | 3 comments »

Last week I had the distinct pleasure to visit the Gu Gong in Taipei (aka. the National Palace Museum or short NPM).In fact the NPM is one of the great museums and owns many fine examples of Chinese cultural heritage. Major sections of the museum include paintings, calligraphy, rare books, porcelains/ceramics, jades and curios Many of the items on exhibit are extremely rare. For example in the ceramics section one can admire 21 items of Ju Ware, i.e. fine porcelain with a characteristic gr...

How to make a endgrain tumbling block butcher block board!

08-12-2009 12:13 PM by degoose | 54 comments »

Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)
