07-25-2010 09:07 PM by DocK16 | 1 comment »

Just wondering if any Jocks out there are planning on attending the Woodworking In America Conference in Cincinnati (actually across the river in Covington KY), Oct 1-3. It’s billed as The Ultimate Skill-Building Weekend. I have registered as there seems to a lot of interesting classes and vendors scheduled. Check out the link

My Introduction To Woodworking #1: The Early Years

09-02-2010 09:58 PM by RonInOhio | 3 comments »

Not sure if it was the first wood-project I made but its the earliest that I can remember. I don’t even recall if it was when I actually was at summer camp or if it was a craft day or something that we attended at camp. Oh well , I guess it does not really matter right now. But we spent a half day or so in a class where we built small reproductions of our cabins. Each cabin was named after a tree species. Ours was walnut. I still have that little model. Its made out of plywood and st...

A status update...I guess the first

09-29-2010 08:42 AM by thewoodartist | 4 comments »

Well, I have to start somewhere, so I guess I’ll jump in the deep end and start swimming. The projects I’ve posted thus far are all completed things. If you’ve looked at them, you’ve probably concluded that I enjoy working in small scale. That’s true. It’s not exclusively true, but many of my pieces are “miniatures.” Shortly I’ll post some pieces that aren’t. I only have a couple of rules. First, I never make the same thin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #129: Moving Right Along

10-10-2010 01:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I made good headway yesterday. Although I still have some of the pattern packet writing to do, I did get through much of it and I also got some other important things completed. I finished drawing and cutting the charm pieces for my Wright Inspired candle tray. I think the charms are as cool as the tray itself. They would make key chain tags or even a necklace. I found a piece of thin walnut that was as dark as the tray and it looked pretty nice. It took me only about half an hour to cut...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
