Hi all,Thank you for allowing me to join you all. I found this site by admiring ‘Doodler’s’ cribbage boards. He does some gorgeous work. Looking at some of the projects here, there is some real talent and I look forward to learning and sharing with you all. I started woodworking in 2005 when my wife was pregnant with twins. I had done some outside projects (playhouse, retaining walls, lattice/trellis, etc) but never anything that didn’t involve pre-treated lumbe...

Workshop #3: Things that make you go Hmmmmm

02-12-2008 01:15 PM by Tomcat1066 | 8 comments »

With the saw vise complete, I found myself thinking about my workshop once again. The saw vise was done completely outside in the open, and I found it pretty nice to get some fresh air while working. This has be doing even more thinking about an outside workshop. Besides the space issues, which I’ve lamented more than once, there’s just something nice about working like that. You see, that little storage room that will be the shop isn’t climate controlled at all. Afte...

Various Projects

03-04-2008 12:03 AM by Blake | 13 comments »

Hello again, another random rambling. I just thought I’d keep you updated on what’s going on lately in my shop. So you may have known from my thickness sander blog, that I have been agonizing about whether or which sander to buy for many months now. Well, Yorkshire Stewart finally pushed me back over the edge to make my own from his blog (Thanks again!). This was the design that finally got me excited about making my own: It’s small and compact and just what I needed. So, I order...

Bookcase Challenge

03-28-2008 03:51 AM by CanadianWoodChuck | 9 comments »

Hi All I just finished playing with my Sketchup drawing for the bookcase challenge. I’m really enjoying using sketchup for my conceptual drawings. I’m so glad that LJ comes up with these ideas, it gives me a great chance to play in Sketchup. If I was to build this bookcase I would love to use Oak veneer core plywood for the carcus, oak trim where required and a contrasting wood like padauk for the face frames. This huge bookcase would cover an area of approximately 5̵...

feeling good

Updated my “to do list page – over at my original (and oft-neglected) blog, and I’m happy to see the balance shift from “to do”, and “want to do”, to done. I’ve also added a gallery page, thanks to the new project card widget feature (Thanks Martin! Great Feature!). Not an exhaustive gallery of all of my projects – as some of the house and shop projects are only blogged about here (and there), but it is a nice visual record of what I&#...

I forgot to mention another little tidbit regarding my health

05-25-2008 04:37 AM by gene | 15 comments »

I gave up alcohol completely about 18 years ago. I worked all over our fine country and after work, I was alone and the only thing I had to do was in a can and the television. Quiting, it was very hard to do, since, the very first day that I tried to quit, I found something out, that I really was a functioning alcoholic. and now I am a sober alcoholic, that does not drink and I do not even eat anything made with alcohol as an ingredient. Now, here is what I give thanks to God and my friend...

Craftsman - Stickley Projects #17: Bookcase

06-22-2008 04:05 AM by Paul | 1 comment »

Not a lot of progress, but the plan calls for lead glass panes in the three small square openings of the door. I decided not to search out and commission someone to make the leaded glass and rather opted to make wooden cross panes. I’ve seen examples of Arts and Crafts bookcases with this arrangement. Simple lap joinery for the cross pane and small lap joints inset into the glass rabett.

Rocking Chair Problem

08-06-2008 03:22 AM by Huckleberry | 7 comments »

Latest and greatest project is for my sister-in-law that is due to have a baby any day now. I am doing the style out of Wood Magazine issue #183. Everything is going well, but I lost the paper that has the rest of the patterns on it for the seat slats. So Jocks if any one has this issue and wouldn’t mind scanning or what ever I would appreciate it. Here is a picture of what it looks like now.

Pics and more pics!

09-29-2008 03:49 AM by TheKingInYellow | 4 comments »

As promised, pictures! I’ll warn you now, I take a lot of them :D First of all, here I am in my ‘shop’, and I use that term loosely! You can see basically all the equipment I have: Ridgid saw, Ryobi SCMS and Drill Press and a Mastercraft (Canadian Tire special) Router and Router Table. I’m pretty happy with all the equipment, but the router and table are pretty cheap. They’ll do for now. So the first big part of this project was the resawing of t...
