Sometimes Things Bug Me...

05-10-2007 10:26 PM by RobH | 2 comments »

Ok, I yesterday that I was off and rocking after having completed much of a cabinet over my long weekend. However, this has been a very frustrating experience for me. As always I broke down the large plywood sheets using a clamp-on crosscut guide and a circular saw. The only problem was that this time, I could not seem to get the pieces square. Ok, so now I have analyzed it back to the break-down of the plywood. Now I just need to know how to aviod this the next time. My largest acura...

Explaining an absence

05-10-2007 06:46 PM by Dan Lyke | 6 comments »

I had hopes of perhaps pulling out a Thorsen table entry. Certainly I didn’t want to be a drive-by poster here at Lumberjocks. But a couple of things have come up, I’m now working several evenings and 6 days a week, and my current “for me” project is finishing up a Radio Controlled glider that I’ve had in the queue for years and years. I suppose balsa wood qualifies as “woodworking”, but a few ribs snuck in here or there hardly makes for good pictu...

Frying the Big Fish

05-10-2007 03:42 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 8 comments »

Howdy From Ohio! I am still currently working in Ohio and it looks like I will be here for a little while with my current projects. I am missing home and would like to be able to say “Howdy from Montana!” to everyone. I Caught A Big One! I am very excited to announce to everyone I found out last night that I was juried into the Western Design Conference. This is the first show that I have ever applied to and it is very exciting for me. I have a lot of hard work and str...

Closet Rebuild #1: Shelf Pin Jig

05-10-2007 06:37 AM by Jeff | 5 comments »

As part of the revamp of the closet in our loft that collapsed a few moths ago, I built this jig to ensure all the holes for the shelf pins would line up and I (hopefully) won’t have any wobbly shelves. It was inspired by a jig sold by one of the well-known woodworking retailers. I couldn’t see buying one when I had all the necessary stuff sitting around (short of a special bit). In hind sight, the time spent might justify the cost. What can I say? I like building jigs. All the...

Thorsen Side Table Challenge #3: Better Stop Thinking and Start Doing

05-10-2007 12:02 AM by Paul | 8 comments »

Yes, I successfully resisted the urge to jump in. But, is the deadline now just three weeks away? I have this sometimes unfortunate quirk in my personality that treats thinking about what to do, and making plans for what to do, in my head, as a quantitative and material act. That’s why I’ve read dozens of great books containing dozens of great ideas on a whole range of subjects but I have never put them to work outside my head. (You see, by just reading the book and thinking...

Thorsen Table Challenge #12: Showing some more of my cards !

05-09-2007 07:01 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

I decided not to hold my cards to close to my chest, as Scott mentioned. I decided to show what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I couldn’t resist doing some chiseling on this table. That’s the reason I did a downward cloud lift on the aprons, in order to fit in a carving. One down, three to go. This is about 4 hours of chiseling. A little more touching up, & it’ll ready for the finish.

My Thorsen Table Project #1: Thorsen Table(s) - slow but steady...

05-09-2007 05:44 PM by schroeder | 15 comments »

I’m not sure I will be able to finish by the May 31 deadline – but I’m plugging along. I wanted to combine the project with gifts for two different weddings this summer. I opted to make them from Black Walnut, with a “Rodel” kind of look. I think Walnut is regal on it’s own, so I tried several methods to add the detail shown in the original design and ended up going with inlay of the same wood. I think it adds a complementary, but still subtle detail. I book matc...

Lumberjock Goes Cold Turkey

05-09-2007 05:18 PM by Don | 11 comments »

I have two daughters; both married with children. One lives not far from where I live in Melbourne, Australia. One lives in Vancouver, Canada. Earlier this year, I planned a trip to Vancouver to see my family members that live there and to spend some quality time with my two Grandchildren. My daughter had an opportunity to take a seven day vacation in Florida, so I agreed to look after her children during her vacation. The experience has been awesome. I’ve made lunches, washed clo...

Commissioned Church Side Altars Complete!

05-09-2007 03:31 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 25 comments »

I am so excited this morning. Why you ask? I’m complete with the St. Anthony Church Side Altar commission project. I have more work to do on other pieces for the church by the end of the month. So, there isn’t much time to take a breath yet, but the completion of the Side Altars is a huge milestone for me, and my woodworking career. To be honest, there were some times that I wondered if I would ever get all of the details of these Altars complete. Total working time is a...

"A Brush Stroke of Illusion" --by RusticWoodArt

05-09-2007 01:18 PM by frank | 5 comments »

A Brush Stroke of Illusion end of day, when all my world has had it’s say, and now i am giving these places in my heart, a time to settle down for a good nights rest…. —-comes the longing crisp of a brushes breath, and so i give the right to let the colors fly,while painting this wood with sealing stealth, where once again i impart a stop gap by and by…. —-wondering now i watch the dance, as brush gives color streams of pigment gloss, while who ca...
