Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #20: Fishing Boat Conversion

08-27-2015 01:09 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview We wanted to have more comfort while using the layout boat for fishing, so we bought two pedestal bases and adjustable height pedestals to mount Wise fishing seats. This required replacing the 1/4” plywood floor with a 3/4” plywood floor to take the stress of a 9” diameter base. Floor Replacement We bought Springfield Taper-Lock pedestal bases and their 13”-21” adjustable height pedestals. A view of the base under the floor. The a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1610: Keeping Busy

08-26-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are few things that make me feel better than seeing someone enjoying my patterns and making projects from them. After all – the reason I began designing in the first place was so others could learn and have fun with them. I try to make each pattern I create into a mini-lesson, so that people of all skill levels can create the project themselves. Often I get notes or emails asking me if I mind if people change up my designs a little bit. Not only do I not mind it, but I encour...

Working with recycled timber #50: Edna's Kitchen Work Benches making the tops

08-26-2015 08:30 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

The tops are six sections of pine planks reverse glue jointed (RGJ) lengthwise and breadboarded ends. Additional lengths of timber were then added to increase the edge thickness. Here is a couple of shots of the RGJ glue up Then it was on to the breadboarded ends and thickness fillers.Initally I was going to add the fillers later but believe it or not I only had one pair of clamps long enough to do the job.So it was slow progress today Once the glue was dry the clamps ca...

I posted my completed bar project last December;http://lumberjocks.com/projects/160074I had the idea of a bar mat made out of those rubber stubby holders you get on holidays in gift shops.Anyway I had a collection of over a hundred to choose from.so I decided to stitch a few together (that’s hand stitch because I couldn’t find any volunteers with a sewing machine).Lucky I didn’t do any closeup photos to show my less than average sewing ability, but from a distance they don&#...

3D Wall Art: Minecraft Edition

08-26-2015 12:27 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I had a lot of fun making this project. It wasn’t complex or even involved any real type of joinery like usual. I did get to use my bandsaw a lot which was fun. I haven’t really used it but to make a few cuts here and there. The Ridgid bandsaw did great with cutting out the letters. Another fun part of this project was that my wife helped me paint. I enjoyed spending the time with her and just having some good conversation. Check out what the great teamwork accomplished in the video. View o...

Ramblings of a Middle Aged Furniture Maker #4: Married life

08-25-2015 07:34 PM by LyallAndSons | 2 comments »

“One blog post a week” Well, it’s been a year since my last one, that sounds about right for me. If you have never read my stories, please go to #1 and catch up. Comments, good or bad, are always welcome. As I’ve stated before, these things are just how my mind works, as sad as that may be. They are written to be entertaining, partly fictional with just a hint of truth to offset the mounds of B.S. It looks like these ramblings are going to be about like my shop work...

Building Two Baptismal Fonts #1: Design and Modeling

08-25-2015 05:27 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I am in the process of building two baptismal fonts. One for a chapel for the Presbyterian Center in Louisville and one for my local congregation. I’m a theologian by training and a woodworker for fun. I sort of stumbled into these projects. This will be a long process, and I’ll try to keep up some blog entries, but it will a bit irregular. I’m starting with the one for my local congregation. Here is the basic model I am working with: I need to make some chang...

The Great Box Sale Adventure #3: I Didn't want to Do it...

08-25-2015 04:30 PM by maplerock | 11 comments »

My last (and only) attempt at a Craft/Art show was not a huge success. Other than good company and a festive atmosphere, it was a lot of work for little sales. You guys all know that woodworking is an expensive hobby (or business for you talented guys) and if you don’t make some money, you are limited in what you can do (or what the wife will allow you to do.) I have been placing a few boxes in boutiques and galleries instead of at shows. I’ve had the same lackluster resul...
