Air Compressor Station #1: Cart Carcass

01-27-2010 04:05 PM by David Craig | 3 comments »

I bought a compressor last week; a PC 3 nailer combo pack. With the limited space I have in the shop, portability is a necessity. Wood magazine had a plan for a compressor station in a back issue that I had so I decided to build their model. I spent a few hours last night cutting the parts and prepping the carcass. This item is more carpentry than true woodworking. Joinery is simple butt joints but will hold up for what it is being used for. The base carcass will hold the compressor an...

A Beginner's Thoughts #1: Moving to the Dark Side...

... as I’ve heard some hand-tool users call it. Yes – I’m talking power tools. Mind you, I have a fair set of power tools now, but my initial intentions for this hobby was to learn the craft via hand tools. However, the more I read, learn and do woodworking the more I’m drawn in to, not only the ease of use, but also the plethora of information available for power tools. Seems that every tutorial I pick up involves some use of a power tool, beit a table-saw, drill-...

Entertainment Center #2: Day 2

01-27-2010 05:20 AM by kolwdwrkr | 6 comments »

Well another day is down the crapper. LOL. Everything went okay today, but I lost some time. I had to go to the shop to make the countertops. That’s an hour I lost in drive time. I also started getting frustrated that I didn’t have enough material for the kick box, but then I found some oak ply I had. So that worked out. I don’t have enough poplar for the doors, which is the next step. I also need to figure out how to put a 48” bead board back in a 51 1/2” h...

Extremely Average #25: Photographing my Blog pt. 1

01-27-2010 04:20 AM by Ecocandle | 19 comments »

If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. -Richard Avedon I didn’t know about the work of Richard Avedon before his exhibit at the Corcoran at the end of 2008. As a volunteer docent at the gallery I got to hear a lecture from the curator of his traveling exhibit, and learn about his amazing works. I became a fan. This wasn’t the beginni...

What was I thinking?

01-27-2010 03:52 AM by GregPT | 6 comments »

We put an addition on our home (my biggest project) and we decided that a floor to ceiling wall unit on the the wall of the original house, leading into the new addition would be great! So, I decided to take on this big project (my biggest woodworking one ever) and it’s going on much longer than I anticipated… should have known better. :) Here’s the before pic of the wall… Originally we were thinking bookcases floor to ceiling and around the door, then we said, w...

Making a Wooden Hinge For Your Box - Tutorial

01-26-2010 11:28 PM by stefang | 53 comments »

While the rest of the world is going forward I seem to be going in the other direction, ie; wooden hinges. I bought a book from FWW back in 1998 showing router projects and techniques culled from past magazine articles. There was an article there by Rob Cosman.which included a method of making wooden hinges. This is the type of hinge in question shown on my box below. ““ ““ Main Problems producing a hinge using Rob Cosman’s method In Cosman’s a...

Rescued Wood #12: New Zealand Kauri Pine

01-26-2010 11:18 PM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

So, yesterday while slabbing some Eucalyptus where is was felled in town, our local feller stopped by to ask if I wanted some log sections of a tree they had just felled. When I asked what it was he didn’t know, but promised to fine out from one of our local tree experts. True to his word, he drove by half an hour later and told me it was New Zealand Kauri Pine. I knew nothing about it, but his best chainsaw man told me it was quite hard, and the sample he had with him looked quite...
