Getting started

11-18-2009 01:10 AM by Roostermiester | 4 comments »

OK, so I’m not much of a social networker, but so far I like this site for it’s specific focus (home at last, maybe). I’ve posted some of my older projects and I need to get some pics done for my newer ones (since we moved to Colorado). There is still quite a few of them on the to do list as well. We are finishing up a renovation (not sure if that’s accurate) project at our house and there are some more built-ins and what not that will need to be made. Once again, ...

Getting more from my router #2: Where do I begin

12-18-2009 10:41 AM by TemplateTom | 7 comments »

First the material I have posted on You Tube was a series of videos I had prepared before going to the wood show, to show others what really can be achieved with the router with the aid of the guides. I suppose what really has to be explained is ‘Why I use Template Guides’. Template guides will introduce greater safety awareness with the use of the router. It will also introduce projects that you may consider not suitable of producing with the router. It will also a add a grea...

Well friends, I am at my place of work and we are preparing for the New Year’s surge of drunks and disorderly. (I work in a trauma/ Emergency center). This being a full (not to mention blue) moon it should be an interesting night. I would like to wish you all health and happiness for 2010. May your wood pile be full of inspirations and project ideas. Keep your eyes on the sharp end of the tool and enjoy your time in the shop. Your friend Jacques.

I’ve decided to get into woodworking – specifically to build some new cabinets for the office in kitchen. I’ve realized in order to do this (if I’m serious), I’m going to have improve my existing workspace – and at the same time, get some practice. Until this part of the project is complete, i’ll just be posting the latest picture – below. Frame is assembled.

Returning Home #1: The date is set

02-02-2010 09:10 PM by digitalwood | 14 comments »

Hi all, Soon I will be reunited with my love that was taken from me about two years ago. On April 4th, I will be reunited with my house and, most importantly, my workshop after a very long divorce that went on for almost two years. I can hardly wait. I have been lost without my hobby and went through several months of sawdust withdrawal. Agonizing! But with the settlement complete, I will be able to get my fix every day! From the pictures provided during the settlement conference, it...

I’ve decided to build a new workbench. The sorry thing I’m using now does not really qualify as one. Maybe as an assembly table or work surface, definitley not a real workbench. I’ve posted more details about the decision that led me to build a new bench and choice of materials on my personal blog. —thanks for looking.

Of wives and workshops

04-21-2010 08:06 PM by Derek Lyons | 9 comments »

Well, I got put in my place this weekend… Reading various entries here over the last week or so about wives interfering with workshops, I counted myself lucky. Except for keeping enough room available in the winter for her to park her car in the garage, the shop is all mine. She knows not to touch or move anything, or to put anything out there. It’s my place. (She has her studio, I have my shop, it balances out.) Sunday, she was helping me out in the shop with the seemin...

Time to build a medicine cabinet.

05-05-2010 12:37 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...
