04-20-2010 04:43 AM by Tony_S | 19 comments »

Blog Entry-write about your woodworking journey in a casual or tutorial format; whether it is a project in progress, inspiration or a challenge Well, I guess this is the right place for this…It was a woodworking journey, an inspiration and a challenge, all rolled into one. I have admired Sam Maloof for many, many years….and although Ive never actually laid hands or even eyes, on a true Maloof piece, Ive managed to collect hundreds of photos through magazines, books and the ...

It Seemed Like A Good Idea

04-20-2010 04:34 AM by kshipp | 6 comments »

I needed a bookshelf because I had books all over the place on shelves that weren’t specifically made for books. They worked okay but I wanted something a little more purpose built. I didn’t want it to cost alot but I also wanted it to be something kind of unique because that is just the way I am. So I came up with this idea to make a simple frame out of 2×4’s and use wire rope for the shelves. I thought I had everything measured out perfectly and the build went exac...

After having read the one sentence above I realized that it was funnier than the entire post at the link above. To be completely honest, tonight’s post was not my best effort. If you are interested in reading a really mediocre post, then by all means, click on the link. But know this,...

Flower Trivet

04-20-2010 03:15 AM by rangercarr | 0 comments »

I just finished another trivet. I made it from plywood and got the pattern online. It took me about an hour and a half to make. I find the best way to make something like this when you have a pattern is to glue the pattern with a spray glue onto the piece of wood and then when you’re done cutting it out you can use a hair dryer to heat it up and then it just peels off without leaving any marks on the wood. I will post pictures soon along with the hope cross.

Handplanes #1: I didn't know it was going to be this addictive.

04-20-2010 01:51 AM by Newfounlandwood | 15 comments »

Well guys,Let me start off by saying I have always admired old tools. There is something wonderful about holding a tool that a great craftsman may have used to make extraordinary with furniture a hundred years ago. Combine this with my new fascination with hand tools and I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at handplanes. It started out with the Veritas apron plane, which led to many ebay purchases. I have to say I could not have dreamed of a better finnish than these...

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #3: FINALLY DONE AND WASHING CLOTHES ( Edited 02/05/2011)

04-19-2010 11:51 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

I thought it was about time I posted the completed project. With help from my Son we grunted the machines up in place. They look good, & work real well. The pedestals are good, & solid. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s sure nice not to have to bend over to load, & unload now. I edited this on 02/05/2011 I changed to stationary non-swivel casters, but after that I had the problem of them slipping side to side on the sm...
