A day with David Ellsworth

03-23-2010 03:45 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #7: UH OH

04-20-2010 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

Well, I might have been beaten. I plugged the saw in today, after all this work, and nothing. The capacitor starting system has problems. So, unless I can get it fixed or replaced somehow (bringing it into an electric motor repair place that specializes in this), the saw is dead. Too many proprietary parts to be able to cobble something up. Stand by, we are having technical difficulties. We are hoping it can be overcome somehow. Jim

I don’t remember everyone’s name but there was a lot of people there yesterday and we had one heck of a great time. I forgot my camera but Rustic Rick took a bunch of pics he said he would put on as soon as he had time. Dustin again brought his bunches of veneer. Wow, I scored on the wood exchange with a pile of curly maple plus a roll of curly maple veneer, how’s that for lucky. I know David Craig got a board of blood wood that will keep him in inlay for life. plus I gave h...

backyard deck #1: floor done---working on railings

05-30-2010 10:01 PM by dmoney | 9 comments »

Building a deck for my backyard. It had one on when we bought the place but it was very old and wobbly so we ripped it down. Fast forward 2 years and now we are putting up a new one. Decided to go with green treated wood primarily due to the cost and easy availability. I also had been making adirondack chairs and found out all of the cool colors they make stain in now! the deck is 13’x12’ this was also my first attempt at making stairs, only ruined one extra 2×12 :)...

Do you Twitter?

07-12-2010 05:49 PM by Brian Havens | 33 comments »

Being a high-tech guy by day, I find that I spend most of my time developing technology and not taking advantage of it. Doing woodworking, and even a little teaching woodworking (via videos), on the side, I am always looking to keep up with the latest trend. That being said, Todd C got me started on this whole Twitter thing. I have to admit, even as a high tech guy, I am not sure I really get the whole concept. And now that I have been at it for a few days, I am only lukewarm about the ...
