Waiting for Winter

12-31-2011 03:55 PM by jbschutz | 4 comments »

My last entry was about the endless winter….to come. We are still waiting! After a mild, pretty snow-free December, Minnesotans are wondering what happened and when the shoe will drop. It has been a great month of fairly comfortable temps in my unheated garage/shop. We still have not had a below zero to brag about, and only about six inches of total snow…and that has melted. I have my thoughts set on some new projects and an upcoming trip back to Hawaii for the eighth time. I ha...

A New, Non-Wood Adventure #1: Genesis

01-11-2012 04:53 PM by Bret | 1 comment »

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I packed up and moved my house and my shop from Denver to Virginia. And it seems longer still since I’ve spent any real quality time here on LJ! Mostly, I guess that’s because my shop is still sitting in boxes in my smaller garage here in the hinterlands of Culpeper county. And since I still can’t fit a car in the garage under the best possible conditions it’s a safe bet I’m not doing any woodworking...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #592: Done. (complete. through. ended. ready. finished)

01-24-2012 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had a rough night last night. For some reason I couldn’t really sleep. I think it was because I was thinking about packaging things up and calling for the parcel to be picked up by Purolator to go on its way. For those of you who haven’t been following along, the last week was a bit of a struggle for me. I am not sure why, but finishing up this project took more effort than it should have. Perhaps I am a just a bit tired or out of sorts. I was up several times during t...

router table

03-23-2012 12:40 AM by jacob34 | 1 comment »

I was reading the new issue of Wood and on the cover is a flip top router table. I have seen several blogs and people talking about router tables buying and building, this is one was supposedly built for 43$ although I assume that has to do with where you live and materials you use. I was intrigued by the picture and think it is the router table I am going to try to build. I especially like the way the fence clamps onto the table and the fact that you can flip the top for easy removal and wor...

Banjo #3: Starting the Pot

04-18-2012 10:57 PM by Brett | 2 comments »

I had a chance to make some progress on the banjo today. Here I have some quartersawn sycamore glued to the sides of the head. When that is ready I will trim the edges and then glue some on the face and back. Here I have started on the segments for the pot of the banjo. I made a template for routing the whole pot out and also a template for each segment. It takes 4 segments to make one ring and I will have 3 rings stacked on top of each other to make the completed pot. ...

Death of a Dado Set

05-05-2012 12:03 AM by PASs | 13 comments »

Well, at least it wasn’t me that bought it this time.I made a gavel and striker on commission from some of the Indian Dontknow I use for a lot of my projects (post on that to follow).I had emailed the customer to let them know they could pick it up.I told the wife they would come over the weekend and she said “You should make a case for it.” I told her that would be more cost, and I haven’t done a case before so it would take about, oh, a year for me to get it figured ...

Canes & Walking Sticks #1: Custom Canes for Wounded Warriors

06-20-2012 06:42 AM by mmh | 7 comments »

For those of you who know me, this has been an ongoing interest stemming from our humble small business of making custom canes for people who need a walking aid and who are interested in having one that is not resembling an aluminum medical device or a cheap store bought version that Charlie Chaplin would have twirled. My husband uses a cane and for years he searched for a one that had enough substance to support him and give him a sense of style. The handles were made of various material...

Electric Bass Guitar.. #7: Shaping the neck

07-05-2012 08:53 PM by degoose | 9 comments »

Very quick update on the guitar… Johnathan has been rather busy galavanting around the South East and down to the Gold Coast…Got him back into the workshop on Wednesday and started the final shaping of the back of the neck…..Used a half inch radius round over bit to scarf out the rough shape… leaving quite a large quirk…I gave Johnathan a rasp and told him to remove all the timber that did not look like a guitar neck… HMM sound a little like Mr MiyagiHe had...

Crib #3: Finsihed!

08-03-2012 12:28 PM by Andrew | 2 comments »

Applied the last coat of finish last night and installed the side rails today. Went together pretty good, a little tight on the hardware, though. I will be making a taller side rail later on when my son gets bigger. Pleased with the results overall.
