Extremely Average #274: Let the Madness End

10-13-2010 at 12:08 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hey, I don’t think I have posted my blog here for the last couple of days. Sorry about that. Today’s blog is up, and oddly yesterday’s blog was very well received. Perhaps I misjudged it. This is today’s blog. If you wish to see either of the last two, just scroll down. You will find them. Hopefully I will be doing some woodworking tomorrow. Brian

Sleepydogs Blog #9: Sawdust Chronicle's Build Challenge Update

10-25-2010 at 07:29 AM by joey | 1 comment »

The Sawdust Chronicle’s Build challenge is all most over. I have about nine day left including the extra three I asked for, and two weeks ago I changed everything I was doing and started over with a new design. So the question is, will I make it? am I nuts? well the answer to both of them questions is a great big YES!!! I will make, and yes I am nuttier than squirrel poop. Here is the link to the update to my blog if you want to see my new design or leave me a note wishing me good luck....

Built-In Bed #7: Paint and Pumpkin Pie

11-29-2010 at 01:37 AM by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

Work on the built-in slowed to a crawl as we got to a serious painting phase. The painting sub-contractor started out enthusiastically, but after an initial coat of primer was nowhere to be found. It’s so hard to find good help these days. I had to take over the painting—not my favorite activity but these panels are actually fairly easy to paint. In this photo, the customer dropped in for an impromptu inspection. She approved of the quality of the painting, especially w...

Here’s a picture of what my wife got me for Christmas… this gift was based on advice from Steve Ramsey's video for the spouses of woodworkers on gifts. Great Big Thanks to Steve!!!! (BTW, Steve’s Blog site Woodworking for Mere Mortals is great fun and, once in a while, actually informative grin; Be sure to sign up to follow his blog!) Anyway, on to the gift! A very nice S4S piece of Cocobolo, about 1.2 bdft! Don’t know what I’m going to make with th...

Most Gratuitous Use of a Woodworking Vise

01-10-2011 at 04:51 AM by iozl | 8 comments »

Every day a guilty pleasure is opening up the latest Contemporist email showing the latest in architectural and design niceties, most of which I’ll never be able to afford but which definitely provide a lot of inspiration. They had a kitchen on there this week that had, in my humble opinion, a very out of place feature on the countertop. Granted, this is a great looking vise – I’m just not sure what it’s being used for in this situation. Hopefully others here you...

LJs meetings in Paris,France #2: Junk food with MaFe

01-18-2011 at 11:56 PM by Sodabowski | 11 comments »

Well after a quick shopping tour at my workplace, we settled for a while at the nearby Quick JFood restaurant and, well basically we were two gourmets eating sh!t. Y’know, like if Maloof were to make something out of over-rotten wood falling to dust, with no stabilizers around and with the worst of all tools.Here is a proof of our unholly act: and a big up to our fellow LJs :)

Stickley High Chest #5: Almost done

02-28-2011 at 09:04 PM by Greg | 6 comments »

This is the last entry in this series of blogs. My next post will be in the Projects post as the completed project. All that remains is sanding the top with lubricated 600 grit sand paper and installing some drawer stops. I did have a couple of set backs that I had to work through:1. The bottom drawer did not slide very well. The dovetailed drawer slide was binding when moving the drawer in and out. I had removed a little material from the part of the slide that attached to the dus...

Ready, Fire, Aim: Twisted Laminations Cane #3: Three Finished Products

03-25-2011 at 12:38 AM by Lee Barker | 5 comments »

Three coats of Daly’s ProFin provide the splash here. The spiral cane came out ok, but perhaps could have used a little more contrast in the species to really pop. I consider it a successful one-off right out of the chute, to mix a metaphor. The straight laminations are attractive, but I don’t see the colors of the handle coordinating well with the browns of the shaft. I’ll consider carefully those hue relationships next time and glue up a couple or three different opt...
