"Rumblings of a Livid Imagination" --by RusticWoodArt #1: "Art-Full Imagination" --by RusticWoodArt

03-27-2007 01:01 PM by frank | 5 comments »

”Art-Full Imagination” ....and so just as my hands where finding a place of rest, from the duties of my gouging tool, my mind opened up and swallowed a look of forlorn desire, as my eyes laid hold upon this thing i had hoped to call art…. —-and what is art unless one has sat in the dung heap of job, where with saintly satisfaction gone the way of passing nodes of ashes gone knotty grey, i have once again become the sounding gong of wood songs greatest orchestral ...

Thorsen Side Table #2: Aprons and legs dry fit

04-29-2007 07:59 PM by fred | 6 comments »

Progress is definitely being made. I used my new Router Mortising Jig and cut the mortises on the legs and stretchers. The new jig worked far better than I had expected. Woohoo!

The mortises were 7/8” deep and the tenons were ¾”. Naturally, if the mortises are in the center of a 1 ¼” leg then the tenons would not fit all the way. I h...

Hi Folks, As promised, a quick tour of the Veritas Mk.II Sharpening System. In the video I seem to use back bevel and micro bevel interchangeably. This is a mistake and is due to doing these videos at 1am when I should be ”sawing logs,” in bed. However, here it is…

Bandsaw's bite

08-08-2007 12:39 AM by DataDoc | 22 comments »

No matter how careful you think you are, when you feel the thunk of the blade as it catches on the bone means it’s too late. I reached to brush away a cutoff and got my thumb snagged in the blade. With my wife’s assistance I got it bandaged up, and then sat around all afternoon holding my hand up to relieve the pounding in my thumb. Three Ibuprofen and 30 minutes later I had relief. Now all I feel is stupid.

Thanks Everyone for the warm welcome everyone! I just a young guy that is a beginning woodworker. So if anyone has any tips and suggestions let me know!!

So I found a very nice piece of mahogany at the lumber yard yesterday….brought it home and promptly got the following questions from my wife. What’s that? What are you going to use it for? If you don’t know…can I say that I have been wanting a new desk and dining room table…it would make a good one don’t you think? So I went running back this morning to find the match to it…which I did…and I believe that I have a dining room table pr...

My 3 Horses

01-01-2008 10:00 AM by Allison | 2 comments »

I found the pattern to these horses in a stained glass pattern book of which I know longer have so I cannot give credit. If anyone out there in cyberspace knows who did this pattern I would really like to know so that I can give credit. Stain glass patterns are a nice alternative to regular wood patterns and usually quite easier.
