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 http://www.woodworkinginamerica.com/GeneralMenu/
This is just a short notice that I have to announce the results on August 8th at 3 PM CDT instead of 6 AM because I will not be online on Sunday until late evening my time. Voting deadline remains on August 7th at 3 PM CDT. so keep those voting coming. Cool American Craftsman Workshop hats by Todd Clippinger are waiting for three lucky winners from all the voters. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SPONSORS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ...
I built me a clamp rack added some more shelfs, and bought me two 36’’ heavy duty clamps by Jorgensen made in the USA. I still have a couple of shop projects I wont to do! A hand tool workbench and a Norm Abram style router table.
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...
Hello All, The blog is up. I had a bit of a setback today, but I learned a valuable lesson. http://su.pr/9hSRmn Brian
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...
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...
I am starting on the baseball bed that I gave away on Facebook. This will be a version that will have the score of the last game on it. We will be cutting out 5 beds in all. Two of them are sold. The other are for stock. For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. See what we are doing live:<div></div>
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...
I would like to wish all LJ a merry christmas and a happey new year
