New Project, Lecturn

01-03-2008 09:12 PM by Mike | 2 comments »

I’m looking to make a lecturn or podium with charecter. I saw what I wanted in a movie and tried to re-create it. I have sketched it on the computer but seems I cannot attach it. Piture a 16/20 inch box with 20 degree angled sides and a raised book support slanted toward the lecturer at about 20 degrees all sitting on top of a 6×6 X 16 post and crossed legs. If anyone has experience with this sort of thing, suggestions or such, they would be appriciated.

Mission Inspired Couch Table #1: Starting my first 'big' project...

01-22-2008 07:09 PM by itsme_timd | 6 comments »

I love Mission style furniture and am working on my first piece, a couch table that will be used as an aquarium stand. I’m trying to take my time with this one, it gets worked on a little at a time in between some of my smaller projects. The table is red oak from HD. I don’t have a planer yet so I needed to buy lumber that was close to size and fairly finished. I want to try somethung in quarter sawn white oak next. I just finished one side of the table and wanted to post...

Multi-Task Jigs

04-13-2008 06:07 PM by Sir_Robert | 6 comments »

Woodworking magazines are full of jigs for routers, tablesaws and drill presses. If I built all the one-purpose jigs I’ve seen in these magazines, I wouldn’t have any room in my small shop to turn around let alone do woodworking. One thing I’ve noticed about woodworking magazines is that they take essentially the same jig and write ten articles about it, changing it cosmetically each time. For example, how many table saw sleds have you seen in the past year? They all do t...

Another update on the old health

05-24-2008 04:08 AM by gene | 13 comments »

I when to my Vascular surgeon today. He said that there were three options that he told me about, and which one did I wish to pursue? I will tell you the one that I chose, My answer to him was, which ever is the best to give me a chance to go back to work. I have not been able to work in over seven years. It is the first one that he gave me. we are going to try a medication for eight weeks. If that doesn’t work? well, the remaining options do not look that great. So I will not go into t...

Garage Sale Purchase

06-21-2008 09:25 PM by Greg Wurst | 5 comments »

Old Shopcraft T7060 3 wheel bandsaw circa 1986. Didn’t know much about the compnay, but apparently was sold by JC Penney at that time. It seems to track straight and has a new drive belt and a spare belt and couple blades. Probably not the greatest bandsaw, and I know the 3 wheel bandsaws tend to eat belts and blades faster. It has a little more than 5 1/2” capacity, 70” blades, and only 1/3 HP motor. Paid $50 for it. Probably underpowered, but I’ll try resaw...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...

The Craftsman's Path #46: Three Pillars of Design - Part 1 Function

09-27-2008 10:35 PM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

Building on the information that I gleaned from the Graham Blackburn workshop that I attended, I wanted to go into a little more depth on the topics of design that were discussed. According to Blackburn, there are three pillars of design: Function, Construction, and Proportion. I explore how the function of a piece relates to its design in the latest post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

Woodturning with the Girl Scouts

10-31-2008 12:29 AM by TravisCorcoran | 9 comments »

A friend of mine is a Girl Scout leader, and her daughter (and my goddaughter) is a member of the pack (troop? quorum?). We’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a little woodturning experience – we’ll let / help each girl turn a candlestick. There are 12 girls, and I’ve got two lathes in my basement. I’d like to borrow a third mini-lathe, and then have three groups of girls, 4 girls each, rotating through a few stations: (1) mark the centers of th...
