Why buy it when you can make it! #18: Dresser Rehab [Part 6] - Hardware tweaking and tangent...

10-20-2014 03:41 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

My wife wanted to re-purpose the pulls to a satin nickel color. After a few quick sprays of some Rustoleum spray, we have some “satin nickel” pulls. While waiting for the paint to cure, we decided to move the dresser up to my daughter’s room. It’s already loaded up and ready for use. I figure I’ll attach the hardware tomorrow night once the paint is cured. We still have plans to rehab my bachelor days Ikea dresser for use in my son’s room, and to...

"Two Creatures, One Way Seeing" --by RusticWoodArt

02-21-2007 02:36 PM by frank | 4 comments »

”Two Creatures, One Way Seeing” ....and so my mind goes off on a tangent this morning as i am escaping the realities of this my coming new work day, with the active act of unscrewing my head lid and letting my imagination gather wings and take to flight out of this confinement of refinement, as in; “please frank don’t do that….folks will think you have lost your senses and that much learning has in-deed made you muck mad….!” —-but then you...

Thorsen table challenge - tease! #6: Thorsen table, OOPS!

04-29-2007 08:26 PM by oscorner | 9 comments »

Have you ever had one of those days? I thought that I would continue drilling holes on my Thorsen Table to add my decorative buttons over the through dowels. So last night I went into the shop and put another coat of polyurathane on my table top. Then, I began setting up a fostner bit to begin drilling. Well, the beginning of the ”OOPS” actually began when I put the bit up a couple of days ago. Since the box that my fostner bits are in isn’t marked for easy viewing, I ...

Western Design Conference...What A Ride!

09-16-2007 06:56 PM by dennis mitchell | 20 comments »

My head is still spinning. Just getting to the show has been a trial. This was my third try to get past the jury process. I’ve heard about how hard it is just to get accepted into the show. So in my innocence I figured I’d go all out and bring everything. That meant getting a booth. Hauling everything up there. Setting it all up. A good bit of time and money involved. Part of getting ready was getting all new tires on my “good” truck, a 96 GMC with just about 100,000 m...

To all here at LJ’s, I really appreciate the warm welcome here. I consider that I have made friends here and look forward to making more in the future.The old health hasn’t been that good for the last couple of years. Just the great reception and really nice folks here have gotten me in the mood to go back to the shop. It’s hard when one doesn’t feel well to get off the couch. For that I am thankful to everyone here at LJ’s (in the process of cleaning up the shop at this time) Sur...

My Blue Heron

01-01-2008 10:27 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

I did not have a specific pattern for this, rather I used several and kind of drew from them. That makes this project one of my favorites, as truth is I cannot even draw a stick man correctly.The piece of pine I used for the main portion of this had a hint of blue in it so I thought it appropriate to use for my blue heron. Gee I must have been a genius to figure out that one huh? Seriously though I have been told that this kind of pine is called blue pine, and I have always wondered if th...
