Practice makes... Well, two steps forward one step back.

Out in the shop today dry fitting a small scale (6”x8”) prototype of an end grain cutting board using cheap Poplar to hold costs down and hone my technique. (Heck, given my lack of experience it’s more like creating a technique!) The first dry fit went easily – too easily when I pondered it. So I tried again, this time imagining the pieces all slippery with glue… And sure enough all the parts ‘skidded around’ and a couple ended up on the ‘...

"New" Table Saw #2: Begin Rust Removal

10-29-2008 05:43 AM by Jon Parker | 4 comments »

Well, I spent last evening trying to remove the rust from my table saw. It’s much harder than I expected. I tried WD-40, BD Wells Rust Remover, Engine Gunk Remover, and some all-natural super-cleaner my wife had. The thing that worked best was some very fine metal sandpaper. I was careful not to sand too much and ruin the top of the table. I’m still prob. only 1/2 way there, but I’m making progress. Before: Before – Closer: After:

wood with web #1: thoughts on separating tension and compression

11-27-2008 11:06 PM by Justus | 0 comments »

Those of you who have already seen my projects might have noticed the abundance of web clamps. I kind of like them. They are cheap and handy. But that’s not all that makes them an ideal companion for wood. The straps those web clamps are made of have a rather low modulus which means they expand if you put force on them – quite in the same amount wood does. They actually have a similar expansion/shrinkage with changes of humidity compared to wood. Quite unlike steel. Screws and nai...

Merry Christmas

12-23-2008 05:42 PM by Bret | 4 comments »

I haven’t completed any woodworking projects yet, but a few weeks ago I found this video of my contribution to last year’s Christmas Eve service at my church. It’s a rendition of “O Holy Night” on saxophone (I play tenor and soprano) and I’m posting it here even though it’s outside the normal topics here in the hope that it brings some joy, peace, and love to anyone interested enough to listen. Thanks again to all the LJ folks for the warm recepti...

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-02-2009 04:06 AM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

05-21-2009 12:34 AM by Milo | 3 comments »
