Well the end is getting near for Project X – 2×4. I had a little “oopsie” when dry fitting the pieces and had to rely on my homemade edible glue to stick the “oopsie” back together. Actually there are better words to express how I felt, but as this is a family site . . . “oopsie” will do just fine. The pics above are from yesterday and I have arranged Project X and its twin in order to deceive the average woodworker. You can only decipher what it actually is if you ha...
Pretty day yesterday (sorry about that you Northerners) Felt too guilty to neglect all the yard work that needed doing, but I did get an hour to shape and form the handles for this tool box. I was thinking that I needed to be taking pictures, but I was too lazy to go get the camera. Sorry.
I’ve been engaged in building a church lectern for my friend’s startup, rather small church. Tried making a technical drawing in Bryce, and something got translated wrong, and now I have something way too huge, starting to look more like an altar rather than a lectern! Back to the drawing board.
I have already put up this post on my personal blog and I don’t think I can make it through that again. If your interested please visit rogersfinewoodworking.com/blog and pay your respects. We all have someone in our lives that touches us and inspires us everyday. Clarence did that for me and I will miss him dearly.
OK. You guys in the freight industry hit the back button. You don’t want to read this blog. Now that those guys are gone… the cost of shipping the 144 inch straight edge clamp is $252.00! Making to total bill around $345.00. Can’t do that so, I made some calls. I found this piece of aluminum straight stock for $62.00 locally. I picked it up this morning. It’s 3” wide, 1/4” thick and 12 feet long. I took a picture of it with my 4 foot ruler to give you...
This week I feel I made some real progress on my table. I got end boards glued over the sliding dovetail cleats so they are captured in the table now. This gives me away to fasten to top to the base and still let it move freely, a real problem with using a solid top with this kind of a base. Friday I roughly planed it flat and will finish that up after everything is fastened down. Today I got out my jig saw and cut the excess off of the circle so that later this week when I route it I don’t h...
I consider myself to be a true novice when it comes to woodworking. My current “workroom” (actually the garage, minus my wife’s car) consists of a 10” contractor’s saw, and a 10” compound miter saw. I know that there’s a few more pieces that I need/want before I can start really being productive, and I’ve heard rumors that there’s at least a router in my near future… As the first step in my journey into the world of woodworking, I...
Work, home, or on a beer run. Those would be the most likely candidates. So weekend followup. What happened round these parts? Not much. I took advantage of some garage time to straighten up some more, sharpen and tune some planes, and of course get my jointer back together to tackle the table project. The new helical insert cutterhead is sweet. It is quiet, sharp, and produces a surface that could go straight to finishing. Well worth all the hoops I went through to get it set up. ...
Keep your eyes open ladies and gents, you never know where and when an unparalleled wood treasure will wash up on you desert ile. I was recently given a couple of birtch branches by a retired arbidder. Didn’t think much of them. I figured I’d save them for a project that I needed a nice white stick for. One day I walked by them in my shop and I saw that the cut off of a small branches had dark inky lines spiderwebbing through it. I nearly wet myself! I propty set to work for...
Well here she is! Lexa – the newest dog on the block. Can’t wait for Christmas morning! One of the girls at work – dolled the doggie up. She did a great job – better than I could have done anyway. Hope you like her. I appreciate all the help my fellow LJ’s have given me on the project.
