Geez, I thought I was done with shopping/research :) Seems that once you have your background and lighting down pat the next step is better glass. Keep in mind when I originally purchased my camera I didn’t consider it might be necessary to upgrade the lens. I did understand I may need a different lens for landscape shots for instance. Through this process I’ve come across various sites that show images from one end to the other of the range of a particular lens. I’...
Some new pictures with so progress from last time. I have painted all the walls white. I have turned an old hallway into a tool room, that will be home to all my hand tools and clamps. Basiclly anything you steal will be in the room. I have also installed most of the duct work. Some things that i still need to do are, build a wall to separate my space from the other company in the warehouse. Build out a office and possible paint the floor. The other major and obviously most important thing...
So I found some pictures of wooden rattles online and thought I’d try to do something like that. I bought my first lathe last winter and have not put much time into it, I thought these might be good ways to practice tuning. I turned some dowels and then cut them in half with the band saw. Then I used a few different forstner bits to hollow out the ends. Dropped in dried beans and rice and glued them shut then sanded them smooth. This is after two coats of salad bowl finish an...
We have had many requests for coffee tables, so we are making them as fast as we can. We plan on making 2 more coffee tables and I think the next two will have glass tops, anyway here is the project that I am working on. This table has a “sweeping” movement to it. I had a request to make on that was similar to a coffee table table I posted on here. Well this is as close as I can get. We will also have to add a couple of legs so that it will stand without sitting on a base ...
I don’t have a band saw, so I had to trust my less-than-accurate table saw, and I got to play around with my new jig saw. I followed the steps outlined in David Marks’ European Hand Plane episode. I had to use my table saw to cut the cheeks and the two angles on the body. Then I used the jigsaw to cut the curve. Unfortunately the blade deflected during the cut, so it took a lot of filing and sanding to get it back to semi-true. Next I need to drill the holes for the d...
This weekend I ran all the moldings to finish up the case. The base and tops and the mold under the the tops. I finished up the base first. Its 4 1/2” tall and has mold ran on th the top edge about an inch tall. Here is a close up of the base. The tops are Walnut FC and banded with a 2” wide piece of walnut that has a partial bullnose ran on it. Under the edge of the top is another mold that is 1” tall, its the base mold inverted. Here is a close up. Here is a...

Hi everybody, This looks like a fun/good place to be a part of – lots of nice folks and good ideas floating around. So here I am. First off – thanks for all the kind messages from people welcoming into the LJ community. They are very appreciated. As my profile indicates, I’m new to woodworking. It’s always had an appeal to me, but I’ve never had any 1st hand exposure to it – never had a shop class in school, slipped through a woodworking merit badge i...
