The Broken Carpenter. Funny to think, I felt quite broken when I came up with that blog title. It’s been a year since; and I feel very much changed. Last year, my family and I moved to a new house, mostly we moved due to family issues, and mostly we wanted to move. But, a little bit, neither my wife nor I really wanted to move. When we finally left, it hurt. There is still bad family blood to this day. And I say to everyone out there that love is grand!! Anyways… We landed in t...
So, I feel like my first blog attempt was a failure to anyone that read the first one and was interesting in seeing it progress. The first of this series was like show starting and then being cancelled after episode one ha. Enough of my rambling. After two years, a new job, two little additions to the family, and a few other projects crammed in front of this one I am almost done. Being 100% honest some of the delay was from intimidation and frustration as well. I took a REALLY big bite...
“Pine Bark Box”....and so I thought today, I would post a story on the making of an auger to use in the drilling process of the bark. I had already decided at the onset of the project that besides the use of the chainsaw to drop the tree, all other working of the wood would be done by use of hand tools. As I have yet to show the making of the cherry treenails to join the birch bottom, to the inside the box and also the joining of the ‘one piece’ bark at one corner, I thought I ...
This is my coffee table progress. I have to still make the drawers and stain it. Also I am going to add grout in between the white tiles.
Please don’t post a blog if you just want to see yourself write and don’t want anyone else to comment. Granted there are blogs that don’t lend themselves to a comment or an exchange of informaton. I may be off my rocker with this, but it’s all I can do to cool down my Coonass blood after a recent comment made after(what I thought was genuine participation) was quelled with a desire to nip it. Rest assured that any blog I post welcomes the input and ideas from all Lu...
I am going to write a quick blog today, because I wanted you all to know that we did a site update yesterday afternoon. We have some new patterns available for you and those who may want to start some new projects over the weekend. Keith has two new patterns this time around. His first is a beautiful layered cross, with two different patterns for the backer. He calls it SLDK610 - Faith, Hope and Love Cross.His other plaque is a large sectional word plaque of The Lord's Prayer. (SLDK4...
Got my PW e-news and seen this contest. Signed up here right away . . . not quite sure how to use this site and this is my FIRST EVER blog. My mind is racing already. Gotta warm up the DW616.
For my first project of this year, i made a candle holder. i face glued four species of wood together, and cut a ten inch long piece of wood in half to make two five inch pieces. things i learned was that you don’t need to glue so many pieces of wood together to make it look bulky. overall it turned out nice
Well, this weekend I was going to get out in the shop with the camera and start snapping before and after pictures of the cleanup job I was doing in the shop. I thought it might make a good blog series. I still do, and I still plan to get started sometime. The problem is that we really made no progress toward the organization part of the cleanup. In fact, we made it a little worse. My wife wanted to get a freezer for the garage, and we picked one up last week. When we got it into place...
Overview The only portion of the boat remaining to be covered is the dog blind area in the stern of the cockpit. Copper is pretty small, so I didn’t leave him a whole lot of room to “nest.” The height is just enough for my head to clear when I sit up. Copper can lay down or sit with his head lowered. Allowing him full seated head clearance would defeat the purpose of a layout boat. Construction I built the frame from 3/4” aluminum tubing and bimini fit...
