My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #269: Plans, Plans and More Plans . . .

02-27-2011 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Remember the other day when I talked about those unexpected curve balls that pop into our lives? Well, yesterday I was thrown a little one and it is a good example of what I was talking about. With only three short weeks left to prepare for the trip, I am making good progress with checking everything off of the list, but there is still much that I want to accomplish and get ready for leaving. Being gone for almost three weeks is going to be a big thing for me. I can’t remember th...

Acrylic #1: First Attempt at Turning Acrylic

04-04-2011 05:53 AM by mcjibbin | 4 comments »

After I posted the Zebrawood tote and knob set project on LumberJocks, bigike (of LJs) sent me a message asking me if I’d like to be the first to turn some Acrylic plane knobs. He said he had a source for acrylic stock. I told him sure – not wanting to pass up a chance to expand my lathe skills and at the same time turn some unique plane knobs for Ike and myself. He said he’d mail me some, and I sent him my address. Sure enough, a few weeks later, I received a big box of...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #13: Accuracy - Maybe Just a Crazy Idea

05-24-2011 02:55 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 5 comments »

Can I add a dial indicator to the machine that tells the depth of the fence? That way I could dial in/out the fence distance accurately? Thinking about where/how to add the dial indicator. I know the moving point wants to touch the back of the fence adjacent to the bit. The other end needs to be securely attached to the machine.

Critics stink!

07-20-2011 05:30 AM by Transition | 16 comments »

My garage is an old barn. It is partitioned into three sections: 1) a 20’x20’ on the bottom right, 2) a 10’x20’ on the bottom left with stairs to 3)my shop on the second floor. So last night I was building some shelving on the bottom right. When I finished aroung 10pm, I took a 45min break to grab a bite. When I returned, I started filling the shelves. In the room on the left I heard a rustling noise. I peeked through the connecting door and discovered… a s...

So the real journey begins.

08-16-2011 04:35 AM by usnret | 3 comments »

I have been in the US Navy for almost 20 years an a Machinist’s Mate, which means a boiler operator and turbine mechanic. Last Monday I received the final approval for my retirement that will be the end of December. So the challenge is trying to find a set of plans for a nice shadow box. I am a woodworker and I should build one myself instead of buying one. If anyone has anyplans or tips on how to make one it would be appreciated.

Hello friends! Any body out there have an old, ugly, dead riding lawnmower that wouldn’t miss it’s transmission ? I just got back from Ace salvage (local junk yard) and didn’t find a single riding mower transmission that hadn’t rusted away or been smashed to unrecognizable metal mass. If you have one and are willing to part with it, I would gladly pay freight and for your time for sending it my way. Let me know if you know of such a critter that might be available. Me...

Projects #3: Night Stand w/ reclaimed wood

So here’s my latest project: My wife sent me a link to this night stand for $319.00 – So it was the inspiration piece: So with some left over wood, some rescued shelving, some old shutters, and $4 at the hardware store for a magnetic stop & a knob for the door – Here’s her new night stand (her birthday present) which she likes very much! Actually my first attempt at a drawer. You can’t see it very well in the picture but the sides are bead board. In t...
