Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box
I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...
I may add a few photos to this as I go along because it’s going to be long. The photo above shows the edging being glued to two sides of the plywood after my initial cut to size. I’m building a nice table for the library/meeting room in our church. The library was painted and enhanced by a few dark cherry bookshelves a few years ago, so I thought I’d replace the two old folding table with something a bit nicer. After This I get to work out a chair design that is nic...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1410: Showcase Saturday #1 - Olde Moon Lane Primitives
Many of you know how much I love and respect other designers and hand made items. Be it painted, wood, glass or just about anything in between, I have always been drawn to others who love to create finished projects to sell. One of the (many) wonderful things that I find in my daily travels on the internet and on Facebook is that there certainly is no shortage of talent in our world, and no matter what taste you have or which season you are shopping for, there is a great wealth of styles and ...
The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out bo...
This poor old table was standing as recently as 3 weeks ago when I took the sunrise magpie photo by the BBQ. The white ants ( termites ) finally got to it and it fell over. At one time it was our kitchen table, a veranda table and at the end, a BBQ table. The glass has close to 24 years of honest wear and I’m very happy it didn’t break. The new table will be in white oak with a ” Leo Fender Foot ” I’ve been fooling around with for awhile. All slot mortised...
As some of you may noticed in the recent days our site’s grow doesn’t have only advantages – some issues are related to it as well. We’ve experienced few site downtimes this week. Fortunately they lasted only few minutes.. and some minor problems (not full site downtime) few hours. Our hosting company (www.rimuhosting.com) is providing us excellent service so far but they had to upgrade their servers this week which resulted in less than hour downtime on Monday –...
I was thrilled this week to get a surprise packet in the mail. Martin sent me a new lumberjocks t-shirt with “Best Craftsmanship Winner” printed on the front, and Obi’s definition of a lumberjock idea on the back. It is a great shirt. Martin said that he was using another vendor for the printing, and I really like the quality on this shirt. The material the shirt is made from is the quality I would expect to get in a souvenir shirt on a vacation trip, thick, soft, and no...
