Antique Desk Project #3: Sanding, And More Sanding

09-29-2010 04:52 AM by William | 5 comments »

As I’ve said already, this project is being taken on just as Lisa has time. She put in a whole day on it yesterday. The entirety of that day was spent sanding too. Whoever painted this desk laid it on thick. She looks like an alien because the way this paint is flaking as it was scraped, I think it’s going to be lead based paint. The sanding still is not complete, but she made a nice dent in it.As you can see however, after you get past all the ugly paint that was on it, this is s...

What LJs Means To Me

11-04-2010 03:37 PM by David Craig | 27 comments »

I think, with all the hostility that has been in the air to take a moment, let the fan blow in a fresh breeze, and reflect on LumberJocks, why I came here, and what this site has done to accentuate my life. I have been here just 17 days short of a year and I can honestly say that no job, no school, no internet site has had as large an impact on my well being as this community has. I am extremely grateful for that. It is said that “Without a vision, the people perish.” That is w...

My Steampunk Telescope #3: Balancing Act

11-15-2010 04:55 AM by TelescopeMaker | 3 comments »

I’ve managed to work some more on my Telescope. One of the things that is very important in a telescope is that it be balanced. The last thing you want to happen is to point it at some pretty double star and say to your friend, “Take a look!” and have the scope move eight inches toward the ground. The center of balance determines the size of the trunnion bearings. So until I know where it balances, I can’t know the size of them. Before I determin the balance, al...

Press Release From North Pole

11-26-2010 04:31 PM by Chris Davis | 8 comments »

NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world and the “Cash for Toys Program”, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year. In his yearly press conference, Santa tells reporters that many factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, Murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft have made his schedule very demanding. Also complicating matters, many of h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #190: A Blog about Blogging

12-10-2010 03:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Some days my life seems like an oxymoron. It seems that I am forever burning the midnight oil and pushing myself to finish something, only to find that once it is completed it is weeks and sometimes even months before I realize the benefits of completing it. By the time the item is published in one of the magazines or in the catalogs, it has been so long since it was the focus of my attention that I am somewhat surprised when I finally see it in print. There have even been times, I admi...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

Building My Work Shop #15: Grizzly TS Repost & Updates

02-08-2011 04:39 AM by Crushgroovin | 6 comments »

Well one of the bitter angry little minds here at LJ’s reported me to The MAN fo posting my Grizzly resurrection story under the wrong section. So here we go again now in the proper area. It all just confirms my thoughts that the people on my banned aren’t worth my time. So sad that someone would have such a great amount of low self esteem. We can all just pray that one day that guys like Bently move out of their moms basement and maybe date a real flesh and blood woman. LOL th...

02-16-2011 10:21 PM by mafe | 17 comments »

Lid.while I wait for the willow tree! I had all of a sudden become in front of the timeline, have no idea how…So I had time to make a lid for the bucket.I had made an extra set of boards like the bottom, so these were the start point. This is what it became.A Japanese inspired lid, in one of my favorite colors, Japanese red. First I cut it in size, and made cut for the handle bars.Then a tour on the router, as you can see I made a primitive circle jig of a piece of plywood and ...
