Redwood Table from reclaimed logs #3: Zen has left the building

03-22-2011 10:45 PM by lumberhack | 8 comments »

I was having a conversation with a friend the other day about the Zen aspect of this project, and I had to be completely honest with her. While I enjoy woodworking and the hidden beauty of wood, Turning logs into lumber is loud, dusty and hard work. Using the chainsaw to get 2 relatively flat faces. Next is taking off the bark and sap-wood on the edges with the bandsaw Then after planing, and planing, and planing, and planing, and…..... I have a useable piece of lu...

52 Weeks #15: Week 15- Balancing Wine, Knobs and Beds

04-18-2011 03:17 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well although my week seemed a little slow to start I am happy to report that I was able to get a good amount of time in the shop. As of my writing I completed 3 different things. I have been looking at wine balancers a lot lately. Not entirely sure why as I do not drink at all but they seem really cool and I thought it would give me something to do with all of those bottle of wine that people have given us and just sit in our dining room buffet. My other thought on these is to make a number ...

Entertainment Center #2: The Carcass Revisited

05-02-2011 02:04 AM by Marc | 0 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. Well, some four and a half months ago I started building a proper entertainment center for our basement. I have now been told if the entertainment center isn’t finished by June my wife will be going out and buying one, so I am back at it. If you check out the first post for this project you may look at these ...

Segmented bowl sanding jig #1: Help with disc sanding jig

05-13-2011 07:40 AM by kapanen | 7 comments »

Recently I have dabbled in making segmented bowls. I have had a few successes, but have realized that I won’t be able to reach my desired potential without getting higher detailed pieces. All this means more pieces per bowl, with more intricacies, which means more precise angles etc. I purchased the masters book via kindle, “The Art of Segmented Wood Turning”, by Malcolm Tibbetts. Being over anxious in learning the secrets and coupling this with the cheaper price has c...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #376: Goin' To The City

06-20-2011 10:09 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I got the site updated with all the new stuff yesterday, and the weather looks to be good for the day so we are dropping the top on the Mustang and heading out to Halifax (to go WOOD SHOPPING!) and see what fun is in store for us! Our first trip of the season! Actually, I am writing this yesterday so that you can read it tomorrow, which by now is today and I am long gone, as we are leaving at 5am. (How’s that for something to go with your morning coffee and tea?) Sorry for short ...

The tiny shop chronicles: #1: Dwindling quarters

07-20-2011 06:19 AM by SnowFrog | 6 comments »

Hi there! Welcome to the tiny shop chronicles. I am quite new to this site and have been enjoying it tremendously. It is full of information and experience but mostly a terrific bunch of helpful people. Anyhow, I have been doing Renos of all kinds for years but it is only in the last 18 months or so that I have truly felt the passion for woodworking. As life can be very ironic, it is while converting our garage (my “former” shop) into our new living room that I fell in love with woodwor...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #421: The Power of Friendship

08-04-2011 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As usual, I woke up today to several emails. Like anyone who has a routine, going through them first thing in the morning is one of mine. I like to see what I may have missed during the night and see if there was any orders or things like that which need my immediate attention. I like Google Gmail because it allows you to categorize your mail and add color coded labels on emails from people or places where you receive frequent emails from. For instance, orders from my site are one color...
