Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill ( on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Toy Construction #33: Mack Truck Steering

04-03-2016 11:53 PM by htl | 11 comments »

The Gatto truck plans have movable steering but not to my liking, they used little tabs to hold the main pivot point and that looked like it would be a weak spot so tried something a little different to get er done. These parts will be seeing a lot a twisting and turning so socked them in super glue to help strengthen them. I don’t seem to be very good at rounding edges free hand so used a rounding jig to get a much better look. I went back after...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #52: Almost There

07-25-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I slept in a bit on account that it is Sunday. I actually woke up at my usually time and rolled over and had ‘one more sleep’. It felt good because it seems that it has been a really long time since I have done that. I think that sometimes the mind set of slowing down helps actually makes us more productive. I don’t quite understand it or know how it works, but it seems that way anyway. It feels like a bit of autumn this morning. I know people aren’t quite ready f...

Orchard Street Sofa #16: A little progress

04-06-2016 12:06 AM by AandCstyle | 2 comments »

I am finally getting back at this project and hope to finish it before I die. haha I needed to round off the sharp edges on the fronts of the back rest supports so I did that with the oscillating sander. I found that it collects dust much better when the shop vac is on. :/ After that, I started gluing the back rest together. Even though it isn’t necessary, I put a dab of glue into the mortises for the slats. Pretty standard glue up process, but I did need a diagonal...

I did manage to get 12 drawers done 48 pieces in all….. then I got distracted… or sidetracked…I did manage to finish the teasers… but will post tomorrow… Here is a pic of the Router table… I made this a few years ago… and the stops on the fence.. This helps to make the stopped grooves..I know this is a little difficult to see but the side pieces do no...

lounge chair

04-08-2016 02:01 PM by johnsonswood | 1 comment »

This is my first post on this project although I have been working on it for a little over two months. My idea for this chair came from a woodworking book. This chair in particular is the model of a Gustave Stickley number 47. Just yesterday I nailed in the side brackets so I will be able to install the seat boards at a slanted angle. More progress to come!

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #3: "Sonja"

08-20-2010 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I am creating and writing down the instructions for the skating pond figures, I see the need to give the characters names. There are many ‘skating boys’ and ‘skating girls’ and I found that it will become quite confusing if I fail to name them individually. Numbering them would seem so impersonal for such a personal project. Sonja is not modeled from anything in particular in the original set of figurines. Many of the characters that I am doing are not. There...

Aurora Night Stand - Darrell Peart design #2: - making the drawer pull

04-11-2016 01:56 AM by Mike_D_S | 2 comments »

This is more of an after the fact blog series, but I figured I’d document the last of the work, this is the drawer pull for the Arched Aurora Nightstand. The pull is 3/8 Mahogany dowel in two ebony blocks. The plan called for a 9/16” thick block which you drill out for the 3/8” dowel. I have not worked with ebony very much and find it to be moderately difficult to work. The Gaboon ebony I was using has a strong tendency to chip and splinter a bit. I went through a cou...

The Studio Furniture Movement#3

09-02-2010 03:16 PM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

My path to enlightenment appears to be rather random. LOL I am discovering the woodworkers path, and the sculptors path as well as architechs and others can be lumped into Art? Found and interview with Krenov. It was great, he was a true Lumberjock! Always called himself an amateur (sp?). A catagory he liked to be in. He talked about others who may have been more “well known” but differed from him. He may have enjoyed what they created but not their process in creating. Willi...
