Veteran's Day Build #1: Flattening the Slab and Layout

10-18-2016 02:39 PM by JustinTyme | 5 comments » I have begun to create a couch table that will be donated to a Veteran this year. It is being crafted from a spalted Elm live edge slab. It will have two trapezoid flat metal legs. There will be five inlayed military challenge coins in the top and will be finished with a clear pour top. I will be adding pictures to this blog post, if I ever figure out how that process works. :p

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...

Block was short in length by..~1/8-1/4”....have that fixed. These are the bits I am trying to build a holder for….and, These are the drills I thought I’d use to make the holder..

Toy costruction #112: 32 Chevy Adding the last touchs

10-17-2016 08:15 PM by htl | 15 comments »

My first radiator didn’t turn out right I made the trim to thin and close to the edge so when I started sanding it the radiator under the trim came throw so made a better one or at least different. What caused the problem was not having the right size router bit and cutting too big a seat for the radiator but on this second try it hit me that my laminate trimmer bit would do it with a smaller bearing on it. Then on to making the front axle.

As many of you that follow me know, I have been going through a kind of ‘transition’ all summer long. I have been blogging for what I think may be six years already (I truly lost count) and never mind sharing my creative adventures with you all. (Some personal ones as well!) You have been just as inspirational to me as you ...
