the humble house workshop #7: Torrential rain and broken baileys

06-09-2009 09:08 AM by kiwi1969 | 4 comments »

Being born and raised on a small island just north of Antarctica I revel in the tropical climes I now enjoy and have been known to have a bit of a dig at those in the frostier regions who are suffering as I once did. However the downside to this paradise in the tropics is the other season we have otherwise known as the wet season, and I must admit i,ve been laughing on the other side of my face recently because for the last 17 days as it has rained every single one of them. Every day dawns wi...

Piece #1, a jewelry box

06-15-2009 08:37 PM by James | 1 comment »

Well after looking around I decided that since most of this wood is warped along its length, I would be better off making smaller things from it. Also, I tend to get more satisfaction from smaller work, so I made a jewelry box. It can be seen in my projects list. I really like working with this old wood. It has a lot of character to it, which makes picking out where to place the unique features of the wood pretty fun. It finishes real nice with no stain at all, too. As I am working on s...

Makita 4.2 Gal MAC 2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

07-03-2009 03:46 AM by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

After doing a lot of research, I settled on this Makita air compressor. It is by far the most unbelievably quiet compressor I have ever heard. Because my shop is small, I am trying to cut noise as much as possible. It is a little heavy, but that is a side effect of being well built. I do not plan to use it much out of the shop, if at all. The recovery time is very fast. This is an awesome compressor and I highly recommend it to anyone. Because my shop is small, I need to ...

My Woodworking Grandpa !!

07-21-2009 09:30 PM by Don K. | 28 comments »

How many of us know that little old man from the neighborhood who is the “Grandpa” of the neighborhood ? They are not related by blood…..they are just that sweet old man down the street who has a life time of experiences and wisdom…and they picked you to share it all with. Mine is a man who is fast approaching 90…but still has the heart and spirit of a big kid…his name is “Spec” (His life long nick name). I met Spec at our local church many y...

Desk build #1: Small Oak Nurses Desk

08-27-2009 05:11 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

My niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, ...

How has the economy affected you being able to woodworking. I’m still able to keep woodworking just not the projects I would real like to build with work being slow I do woodworking as a hobby and now I find it some what of challenge to work on project that are ok to build but just doing it to kill time and keep me in the shop I don’t know but I found for me that when I build a project just to keep busy in the shop I find it hard to get in to it and I was wondering how all of yo...

I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #63: On the LighterSide of Wood

11-01-2009 07:23 PM by frank | 9 comments »

On the LighterSide of Wood So after last night…. I decided it was time to resume my identity, as I am known to mortals. Last night’s photo avatar was a way of closing out a time worn photo image of my-self and, since I am much younger now, I thought I would post a newer version—vision of who I am. This one will run a short while here, till I can come up with a better picture of a hermit turned wood hobbit who lives ‘out in the woods’. ——&#...
