My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1734: Monday Madness

05-16-2016 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am going to try to keep this post on the short side. As usual, I am doing many different things and I am running in several different directions. The weekend was busy and full and I have lots of new things that I am working on that I will be sharing in the near future. At last count, I am working with (I think!) FIVE other designers in one capacity or another on some really cool projects.  These collaborations are in addition to my own work in my own many directions, so you can imagine...

Toy costruction #54: Sanding wheels then back to the car building

05-21-2016 02:55 AM by htl | 8 comments »

I started sanding the wheels with the sander then it hit me this is going way to slow, so the shop smith to the rescue. I would have been sanding for hours but with the ss or any drill press I had them sanded and perfect in an hour, and since it was so easy I took more time with them to get out all the sanding marks. I routed around the rim of the test tire and rim and stained it just to get a look see and didn’t really like the look, but went back and stained the whole ti...

Busy with simple but satisfying stuff

01-29-2011 06:57 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

Lately I’ve been busy in the “shop”. Winter is here in Houston and the cool weather lends itself to actually WANTING to get out in the garage and do … something. So. Put the fence face on my router table fence. Built shallow drawers for our kitchen counter cabinets and mounted them. It’s nice to be able to use all the space in those cabinets and get to everything. No pictures, just half inch baltic ply glued and nail-gunned together. Since our cabine...

Working with recycled timber #58: Flooring Table top secondary edges finished sanded and sealed

05-24-2016 05:13 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

Once I freed up a few clamps it was simply a matter of adding the end edge, Screwed in a center strengthening strip and it was done for a while awaiting for the glue to dry. By afternoon I had it finished construction wise and just edge finishing required so I ran around the sides with a template router bit, filled the various holes then sanded to finish and applied sanding sealer. Filled a few holes but left the resin vein The other end Thats it for blog s...

Corner Inlay Table #10: Think we're ready to move on

02-17-2011 05:03 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

Back-tracked, spoke to several people, got some advice from The Woodwhisperer (Thanks, Marc!), and have a test board that looks promising. Color isn’t quite right, but you’ll get the idea… What I learned so far: Gel stains are good because the do cover so evenly Gel stains cover so evenly over waxy or de-waxed shellac – Norm’s process doesn’t work here The 1/8” masking tape does well to cover the inlay during staining, but comes up eas...

Cello#7 fluting and edges

02-27-2011 10:18 PM by techyman2 | 3 comments »

Hi all,I didn’t get so far as I had hoped this weekend. I managed to get the edges thicknessed, the fluting done and the arching contours scraped down to their finished shape. This cello sure takes some time due to the size of the areas. If you remember from the last blog I roughed out the arching shapes and inserted the purfling. Below is the process of edge thicknessing and fluting Using the marking gauge to set the thickness 5.5mm Using a flat bottomed mini plane...

Hand Plane Quest #1: The Purchase

05-24-2011 07:19 PM by VinnieP | 13 comments »

Recently I have been keeping an eye out on garage sales and auctions for some hand planes. Before last weekend I only had a newer Stanley block plane. The auction I went to only listed hand planes with no details and no pictures. I was also interested in some old furniture they had so I went any way. I’m glad I did! In a box of miscellaneous items I got 3 planes. One is unmarked and I’m not sure what it is (will post a picture if someone wants to help identify it), a Stanley...
