Let's Build a Magazine Case

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

Job Contracts #2: Part 2 - Always get in writing

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by falegniam | 5 comments »

Hello LJ members,The motion to reconsider judgment did not go well. I lost again. This makes twice for the same case that should been settled with just a mediator. I had help with the preparation for the motion to reconsider the judgment, still results in a lose. The person that the court uses for small claims is an unqualified individual to say the least. I went to some lengths to prepare a well thought out defense, which she didn’t even read. I can only come to the conclusion that thi...

Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit #4: Bookcase assembly

08-29-2010 05:31 PM by rando1 | 5 comments »

The later part of the week brought us to the point of pulling together all the pieces and assembling the base bookcase units. All the cutting and fitting together and we have a really cool unit coming together. The face frame got a detailed edge and the top of the unit, we will try to get a better picture on the next update. We did not get too much more done the end of the week, because we took Thursday and Friday and went to Atlanta for the IWF conference. Wow the show had lots of gr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #87: "The Grizz"

08-29-2010 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am still kind of slow today. It is funny how you go away for only a day and it takes you several to catch up again. I am not complaining though. It is good to be missed. Not only by the cats, but also by friends and others. It was funny but when I left on Friday morning, there was one email in my mail box. I was totally caught up on correspondence and getting back to people that I needed to talk to and all. When I got home, there were over 40 things there for me. About half of it was...

Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #4: Day #2 photos

08-29-2010 11:33 AM by daltxguy | 3 comments »

Yesterday rain moved in late in the day and rained all night but cleared in the morning. Unfortunately that left the steep track to the beech forest impassable due to clay mud, despite serious mud chains on the 4wd. The plan was adjusted to do a local walk to view some intact native lowland forests. We visited some massive examples of Kahitakea, Matai, Miro, Red beech and silver beech. Then it was off for a leisurely hot brown beverage at the local River’s cafe before going back to...

Mortises-Tenons-and Dado's Oh My.....

08-29-2010 08:14 AM by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

Three weeks ago I started building a bed for my son the all star werestler. About once every 2 years for the past 6 years, John and his freind Desmond will manage to kill a matress-box spring- and frame. I will not picture the carniage…I figured to build one they can’t break (easily anyway), thinking it wasn’t that much wood (wrong), and it would only take 2 weekends (wrong). Their are 2 stars to this project the first being my mortise jig. The jig is a simpl...

A New Book On Greene & Greene Furniture By David Mathias

08-29-2010 06:56 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

I Can Hardly Wait! A few days ago I ordered a new book titled Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems Of Wood & Light by David Mathias. I held off from ordering it because once I officially placed my order the impatience would set in. Now I am like a kid waiting for Christmas morning and I can hardly stand it. My woodworking has it’s roots in remodeling. As I did design research for my remodeling business, I became acquainted with the well-known Craftsman and Prairie style st...

A journey into the workshop. #65: I should have stopped while I was ahead...

08-29-2010 06:10 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

but making forward progress just felt so good. I kept working, straight through the heat, and soaking through 3 different sets of clothes, and it was satisfying to get things done today, but man am I SORE, and I bet tomorrow is gonna be a LOT worse. I am finding more and more floor, and more of my tools that I was starting to wonder, “now where did I put that?” like my pull saw, hack saw, both of my combination squares, and most of my tape measures, are back in their rightful p...
