Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...

Fireplace Wall #2: The Lower Surround

01-22-2010 07:39 PM by SouthpawCA | 0 comments »

The 3 pieces for the lower surround are finished and installed. The cabinet on the right will hold the components for the surround sound. As luck would have it, I temporarily placed the speakers where they were going to go and it just took away from the Arts & Crafts look even though they were going to be hidden. Totally bummed me out and my wife agreed. After a trip to the local Best Buy, we solved that issue with a new Samsung Surround Bar that will actually be placed above the TV l...

Glen Guarino,woodworker - NJN/State of the Arts

02-24-2010 11:32 PM by GlenGuarino | 6 comments »

This was a very cool experience for Glen. Usually he is alone in his studio with his tools and wood creating lots and lots of sawdust. On this day the producer and her film crew came to Glen’s studio filmed him working and talking about his work. He has been a teacher for years, but never did anything in front of a camera. The producer was great helping him feel comfortable. Marie

...and that includes slathering glue on the ends (let’s try that) and going inside from time to time so I could dunk my head in the sink. First time with the drawknife, fun!

the lift sent chills up my spine. The UPS Freight driver told me he was told to make my delivery last. I muttered my disappointment but then guy said he didn’t know why. He apologized as he was aware of what he was delivering. All was okay, the box was here and I was about to venture into unknown land. Then as he pulled the pallet jack to the back of the truck I saw it. It was blaring out at me, laughing…a huge gaping hole in the box!! NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #17: Table Top Post Mortem

04-21-2010 05:25 PM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

We’ve been using the new top on top of our old table until I can finish the base. Over the last few months, the top has warped a bit, and was obviously out of alignment with the breadboard ends. While watching an old New Yankee Workshop online, I realized one of the things I did to cause this. I selected the boards for their aesthetic value, trying to match the grain to make it look like one solid piece of wood 38” wide. I neglected to alternate the boards’ growth rings,...
