Blanket Chest #1: Sketchup Design #1

02-14-2010 01:29 AM by AaronK | 1 comment »

I’m pretty sure im going to build a blanket chest for my wife for our second anniversary (holds the cotton!). I’m still in the design phase, and got this far with Sketchup. I have not filled in all the joinery, and dont plan to since there’s no need: The carcass will be assembled with loose tenons, so all parts will be milled to dimension and the joinery will follow easily enough. The top will be breadboarded. Most tenons will be doweled more for accent than strength....

Baby Crib #1: Baby Steps

03-04-2010 04:34 AM by MDeSchepper | 3 comments »

Well, like all proud woodworkers we share in the joy of our projects. For the parents out there, or soon to be parents we also take a certain joy in making something special for our loved ones. This project takes on that special joy as my wife and I are happily expecting our first this June. We are expecting a little boy, Logan, who is currently sticking his feet into my wife’s ribs. I spent many hours searching high and low for plans for that perfect crib. I knew I wanted a sleigh...

Whittling with a creative block...of wood

03-13-2010 12:43 AM by Stevinmarin | 14 comments »

I’ve been in a woodworking funk these past few weekends. Unable to really find an inspired project. So I decided to get a small chunk of wood and start whittling…something I haven’t done since I was a kid. It’s an invigorating exercise! So if you are at a loss for something to do, try whittling! It’s easy and requires nothing more than a pocket knife and a block of pine. If any of you have experienced a creative block, I’d love to hear suggestions on ove...

The "What am I doing?" Holtzapffel Workbench #9: One Leg down!

03-24-2010 04:36 AM by DragonLady | 7 comments »

For those of you that are actually following along with me on this project (as deranged as you must be…) you may remember my last post, wherein I managed to crack one of the leg boards right down the middle: I was initially going to scrap that, but a few messages got me thinking. It probably won’t really affect the structural strength all that much, especially if I orient the cracked face so it doesn’t hold a mortise. So I decided to go ahead with that leg. Four-square...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #2: Progress on the Legs

04-21-2010 05:43 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

I got the legs all milled up, 1 3/4” square, and cut the bevels on the bottom. I screwed a fence to my mitre gauge, which had a block of wood glued to it which allowed me to keep the bevels somewhat consistent. I say somewhat, because I think my mitre gauge didn’t lock down when tightened, as there is a very slight variation in the bevels so they don’t meet up in the back on all the legs. Obviously nothing to care about – the only way you’d be able to see the ...

Wood identification help

05-31-2010 03:34 AM by twokidsnosleep | 13 comments »

I posted my first project in another blog and wanted some opinions on the wood type.I have photos of the log, bark, end, cut grain and finished board. The guy cutting it down said it was a black walnut, but no way is it that as the wood is too light. I have a ton of squirrels (aka rats with furry tails) in the yard who plant all kind of nuts and dig everything up so god knows what it could be. My Mustang keeps sneaking into the pics :)Opinions appreciated > This is some oak ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #11: New Days Bring New Ideas

06-13-2010 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt. I read this quote and thought about it for a couple of minutes. It is short and to the point, but full of hope and a sense of adventure. The words are few, but very powerful. My day yesterday didn’t turn out so badly after all. I think it could have easily gone south, but all in all it was a good day. I learned a lot, got to reflect on some things, and also had an inspiration for another project. So ...
