My First Exercise In Boulle Marquetry #1: A Day With The Shipwright!

03-19-2015 06:36 PM by Luke Addington | 5 comments »

I spent the day with Paul Miller yesterday and got my first taste of Boulle Marquetry. I have been interested in marquetry for about 4 years now. This was a huge learning experience. The Chevalet was very intuitive to use. I found it pretty easy to stay dead on the lines (this speaks more to the fact that this was a simple exercise and an excellent tool than any kind of skill I might possess, those tiny details in the coyotes tail were the most difficult part to cut). Sand shading and ...

Photographing long or tall projects. #2: Adjusting Your Photos.

03-22-2015 09:34 PM by Druid | 4 comments »

I mentioned in the first part of this Blog that I would be adding some information on Adjusting Your Photos, so here it is. This section starts with “Step 8” as a continuation to the first section, but these instructions can be used independently from the Panorama function in the event that you have any photos that would benefit from adjustments such as exposure, contrast, highlights, dark areas, etc. Once again, I will mention that the required software is already installed on yo...

I'll get there yet! #2: I'll get there yet! #2

03-27-2015 03:24 PM by artsyfartsy | 7 comments »

OK, I’m stumped again! Ugh. I’m not sure how to continue this blog. Is this how or do I do something else? I’m getting frustrated. I wanted to know also, can I upload other projects I have completed to my projects page or do I submit them one at a time in the new project part? I know I’m old but, sheesh……...

Setting up my new basement shop #3: Not a big fan of concrete walls.. Time for some new drills.

04-08-2015 02:46 PM by Dan | 8 comments »

I think the most frustrating part of this basement shop set up so far has been the walls. My old shop was frame construction and the walls were all plywood. That made hanging tools and cabinets no problem. There were many times that I would randomly hammer in a nail so I could quickly hang a tool. To hang shelves and cabinets in my new shop I figured Tapcon screws were the way to go so I went out and bought a big box of them. I have never really had to drill through concrete before so I wa...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #2: Chopping Mortises-How To

04-11-2015 06:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Wow it seems like this is going slow. Work has been busy and finding time to work on this bunk bed is hard. However, I have finished up another step in the bunk bed and that is getting all the mortises chopped out on the ends. There were 12 total and they all went smooth. In this video I show what tools you need to mark your mortises as well as which tools you’ll need to chop out the mortises. Enjoy, comment, share, and give it a thumbs up! View on YouTube

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1536: #1536 Making Progress

04-14-2015 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be quick.  (Really!)  Yesterday, as with many Mondays, I had a lot of 'odds and ends' to do to get my week started. I didn't really sit down to draw until later in the day, and while that was all well and good, I don't have much more to show you.  Add to that, I got up late today (around 8am – YIKES for me!) but since I was drawing until about 11:30 last night, I feel that my time was not wasted and I am kind of on a roll. It's al...

Door frames

I’m in the process of making a cabinet for my bathroom. This is only a small part of it, it’s the frame to one of the doors I’m making. It has a 1/4 in dato to fit a piece of glass for the doors. The stain is a special walnut with semi gloss poly.

Lumber Storage/Shop improvements #3: OK lets get the sheet goods out of the way.

04-20-2015 06:33 PM by McDade | 2 comments »

To finish up this lumber storage area we need to build our cart for sheet goods. Now as we have no room in the shop anyway I didn’t see the need to make the cart roll round so again I will be borrowing from some of the ideas I mentioned in the first post (check the links these people have really nice set ups or search here on LumberJocks for lumber storage) and will be hinging the cart to our vertical lumber rack on one side and will roll on the a fore mentioned casters on the other. ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #50: Going off at a Tangent!

04-23-2015 01:54 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

Not really woodwork related, but this is an update on my Carport build… The tropical storms and high winds are threatening to undo my work, so I made the decision that I would have to build the walls of the carport from concrete block to make sure it was going nowhere. I thought I had put enough support in the original build, but I have witnessed storms over the last few weeks that would test any freestanding structure. So yesterday my supplies arrived in three loads, they had to ...
