Riding a Storm out

07-19-2011 08:11 PM by NoLongerHere | 12 comments »

A hot week in August – one Hell of a time to replace a leaky flat roof on a music store. This commercial building was in really bad shape. The old flat roof was rotten and had been leaking for some time. There were numerous roof repairs in the sagging roof which still leaked and ran down inside the walls and just destroyed them. The heavy smell of musty mold permeated the air and left no doubt, this had to be fixed right away. .I’m quite familiar with this b...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #17: A welded Stanley #4 restored to a great user

08-03-2011 06:47 PM by Dan | 9 comments »

Whether you are a collector or a user of planes I think its safe to say that no one is interested in a common bench plane that has been welded back together. I was never interested in a welded plane either until I got this Stanley #4 type 9 that had been welded back together on both sides. A couple weeks ago I picked up this #4 Stanley plane and my original plan was to use it as a parts plane. After looking it over I changed my mind and decided to fix it up as a user even though it had bee...

I’ll keep you posted.

Kitchen Island Counter Top

09-15-2011 06:45 AM by DogwoodTales | 3 comments »

This is a kitchen island counter top that I made for a customer. It is made from solid zebrawood and is finished with catalyzed lacquer. It has quite a striking grain pattern – and quite a story to tell to go with it of how it was made and subsequently repaird following an error from the installation of the counter top. I kept a video log of the entire project and will start uploading videos of this project to my dogwoodtales Youtube channel and web site soon. Raymondwww.dogwoodtale...

Time for new storage.

10-01-2011 05:04 PM by tom427cid | 18 comments »

Lately I have added to my accumulation of wood planes and unfortunatly run out of storage for them. I wasn’t to bad until my friend-who is cleaning out his shop and moving to smaller quarters-presented me with the wood planes that he had. So now the challenge is to come up with some sort of cabinet to keep everything in one place. All the way from a 28” jointer to a 6” trimmming plane,all the hollows and rounds,T&G sets,fillisters,sash planes, and leave room ...

For a contest of Tooltechnic Systems nv/Festool Belgium I wanted to show how accurate Festool machines are and use all their possibilities.The ultimate challenge for this was to use these tools to make a copy of itself. As the TS55 is the tool most used I decided to make myself an extra one…in plywood. pay extra attention to the soundtrack as it’s made from only sounds produced by my Festool machines. enjoy the movie! the link to the contes...

How do I go against the way I was raised?

12-17-2011 01:47 AM by Cozmo35 | 39 comments »

I was brought up in the deep south where above anything else, you were to respect your elders and put them on a pedestal. That has been instilled in me from my very first breath. As many of you know, I have cut many wooden crosses on my scroll saw. I have a very frail, very old lady who is my neighbor. She saw one of my crosses and because she liked it so much, I gave her one. Well, that is where it started. She asked if I would make her son one. So, I did. She then asked if I’d make h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #604: A Busy Day Ahead

02-05-2012 03:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am afraid you are all going to get the cheap version of the blog today. There is just so much I want to accomplish and it is already later than usual. I had one of those strange evenings where I was thinking so much that I couldn’t sleep. So much to plan and do. At about 4am I finally gave up and came out in the living room to read through some things on the computer, but after a bit, I fell asleep again on the couch and when I woke up it was already almost 8am. For me that is qu...
