I suppose I could blame it on the previous week. My back was still sore. I was feeling poopie about some of the things with my job in general. The cats got me up early and I was kind of tired. Whatever the reason, I would think it is pretty safe to describe Saturday as a “less-than-inspiring” day. We all have them I suppose. But most people don’t put their creative lives out here on the internet every day for all to see. After almost three years of doing so, and near...
I saw this Strange Growth on a tree when were down at Griffin Park in Los Angeles. I take the kids down there now a then to go see the trains and have some fun for the day. As far as I can tell this looks like a Liquid Amber but my tree judgment is horrible at best. It is either a disease or some very bad pruning that has caused this poor tree to look like this. http://www.thiswoodshop.com/strange-growth/img_2128/http://www.thiswoodshop.com/strange-growth/img_2129/http://www.thiswoodsh...
i’ll keep posting my journey of remodeling my 2car garage into a basic functioning work area.So here, I have the panelboard roughed in (I still have to seat it firmly). I decided to keep it low as this will allow more upper wall space for french cleats or cabinets, as you need 15” left of panelboard centerline and 15” right of panelboard centerline as per NEC code and 30” infront.. Those couple feet add up when you have a small work space, so down low out of the ...
Hey friends, I wanted to repost my spoon carving videos for the many that might not have been able to jump over to my new website. I realize I did not share here on LJ’s! More woodwork to come in the upcoming weeks! Thank you everyone and be well! Joe http://www.spoonscarver.com/
I was interested to see if anyone has heard of a company called Singcore. I’m interested in DIY woodworking projects, and I am currently drawing up plans for a prototype conference table. I expect the table to be around 25’ in length, but I want to minimize weight because it will be transported relatively often. After doing some research, I decided that I would like to work with torsion boxes due to their high strength-to-weight ratio. When I realized the amount of work involve...
In my last entry, I talked about the issues that this expansion has caused with all the constructionlumber crowding up the inside of my small shop and in the yard. Also I had some water damage along the back that I addressed. Dug it out, replaced rotted sheathing, and layed in some drainage gravel. Since then I installed the rear gable vent , measured ,cut ,and primed some trim, put up fanfold water barrier and some siding on the back. Also decided to put up a lean-to on the back to get...
Made a little more progress last couple of days, got the partitions installed and the edge banding on the front. Trimmed and sanded the edge banding and started the layout for the drawer boxes.Today was my last shop day for the next month. We’ll be leaving Thursday morning for our grand road trip to San Diego with stops in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. After a week in Diego at my Navy Ships reunion it’ll be up the Pacific Coast highway to LA, San Franciso and Sonoma Wine Coun...
My daughter Amelia and I will be working through this project together to learn several skills together that will be beneficial to us in the future. She is a home schooled child, and we saw this as a great opportunity to learn blogging, woodworking, and writing together. Amelia is 9 years old, and she loves collecting natural items. One day while browsing on wikipedia, I came across this beautiful 17th century cabinet known as a cabinet of curiosities. The illustration below shows a painting ...
Well… today was pretty productive. I definitely prefer building and creating over demolition. But I like that I’m making room for what comes next. So here is what I started with. I wasn’t sure how hard taking this bad boy down would be. But I located my crow bar and my favorite hammer and got started. First off… those ridiculous tiles. There was some leaking from above the window during the fall/winter. It’s all fixed now. But its obvious that it...
