Bar Top Mat

08-26-2015 06:28 AM by Grumpy | 12 comments »

I posted my completed bar project last December; 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 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1609: Multi-Tasking

08-25-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I felt a lot more like myself. After a couple of weeks of feeling a bit 'lost' I was back in full swing again working on three different projects at various stages. There's nothing like some good, solid deadlines to kick start us back to productivity!I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I have many friends who design and create all kinds of crafts from woodworking to painting and just about everything in between. I have seen them struggle and I have seen them soar ...

Woodshop/Garage Build #6: It feels so good to make sawdust again. Building going up

08-25-2015 01:54 AM by BMichs75 | 1 comment »

After a long weekend of good labor in the sun, things are starting to come together. The walls are being built and sheeted (window and door openings are under the ply). I underestimated the time involved to build the walls, but I was doing everything myself. Walls consist of 2×6 studs set on 16in centers. Two windows are 3’wx5’h single hung and four picture windows 6’wx2’h and two 36” exterior entry doors. I strayed from the original plans a little by swappi...
