Starting up a workshop the second time around. #8: Progress feels good.

1499 days ago by David Kirtley | 0 comments »

This has been a good week for getting stuff done and working toward having a place to work. I made another bench. Well, not quite the same as my workbench but very similar. It is going to give me a place to put some stuff. I am deciding right now but it will probably hold my mortiser, my wet grinder, and my baby drill press. I am really playing musical chairs with my tools to make room for the latest addition. Not totally woodworking related but I picked up a little metal lathe to add to...

Extremely Average #207: A Detailed Explanation of My Methodology

1487 days ago by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello LJ’s, It has been pointed out, and rightfully so, that I am really descriptive in every aspect of my blog posts, except my methodology. This is true and tonight I decided to give a much more detailed account of how I glue up a tiny box with 45 degree angled joints. I have lots of pictures and of course, a silly introduction. Tragic Error in Communications – Extremely Average Tonight’s post made me chuckle. :-) Brian

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #3: Assembly At Last

1474 days ago by RonPeters | 5 comments »

Being that space is at a premium – I have to move ‘this’ to do ‘that’ – I decided to add shelf/drawers for storage under the bench. I’ve been slowly progressing – until I discovered the biscuit joiner! I now have the carcass assembled and oiled! Here’s the oiled carcass: I checked for square as much as possible. I even clamped the square to the sides. Pretty darn close considering. I may be 1/16th off end to end? I’m certain ...

A day spent with Mike (again)

1436 days ago by Rustic | 8 comments »

Hey guys and gals, Well today was a day to remember. First, off to the Dr. for yearly physical, (fun fun). Everything checked out ok. Then off to JockMike2’s shop,where I have a bowl in process on his lathe. I was there last week to start the bowl. Went today to work on it some more. Had a few checks that needed some serious filling. Then on to turning the inside of the bowl. When I left there today I walked out with my bowl in tow. It is a beautiful piece of maple with some spalting...

1410 days ago by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hey, I don’t think I have posted my blog here for the last couple of days. Sorry about that. Today’s blog is up, and oddly yesterday’s blog was very well received. Perhaps I misjudged it. This is today’s blog. If you wish to see either of the last two, just scroll down. You will find them. Hopefully I will be doing some woodworking tomorrow. Brian

Built-In Bed #7: Paint and Pumpkin Pie

1363 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

Work on the built-in slowed to a crawl as we got to a serious painting phase. The painting sub-contractor started out enthusiastically, but after an initial coat of primer was nowhere to be found. It’s so hard to find good help these days. I had to take over the painting—not my favorite activity but these panels are actually fairly easy to paint. In this photo, the customer dropped in for an impromptu inspection. She approved of the quality of the painting, especially w...
