Just for Fun... #85: Plotting and Scheming...

09-02-2014 10:07 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

So a new project has begun, a Commissioned piece this time…Until I receive permission, I’d rather not discuss all the details, but you clever bunch will pretty easily discern what is being made here…Some Wood was secured, Bubinga that had been milled last Winter… When the two matched pieces were butted together, they seriously didn’t jibe, so trued ends were cut by marking and cutting them using a Square and Rule… A good deal of Plotting and Scheming th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #65: Calculating Material Cost

11-13-2014 02:24 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I am sure that this issue has been beaten to death but I wish for one more try. When calculating material cost do you calculate the actual material required for the project or the amount of material you will need to purchase? Case in point. I build doll furniture but that really does not matter. I calculated the actual material needed and came out to $11.00. I calculated the material required to purchase and would need to purchase $30.00 to have enough. Now I always know I can and will ...

Enjoy the sneak peek preview of the private messages in works: Oh.. and I hope you noticed small upgrade I’ve released this morning – when you submit any form on the site you should see animated ‘Please wait’ progress bar.

"Pick-Up Sticks" --by RusticWoodArt

02-25-2007 02:50 PM by frank | 8 comments »

”Pick-Up Sticks” ....some of my building can best be described as playing a game of ‘pick-up sticks’, and while in the midst of an ever changing world that seeks to push it’s way, by ever increasing the surrounding domains of all those others, i have found a place where i can still play as a boy and build after my own hearts delight…. —-there are the times when after looking at all those others who are into building with wood, that i often feel ...

The Saga Continues #3: Blanket (Hope) Chest

03-30-2007 02:52 AM by fred | 3 comments »

After my daughter received her letterbox she asked for a blanket/hope chest. I showed her some magazine pictures and she wanted something real simple, sort of minimalist. She also told me it had to be made of cherry. In a recent “Wood” magazine there was a cedar-lined blank chest. I used the general dimensions of 40” wide, 16” deep and about 20” tall, and followed the article in completing the inside of the chest. I used unmatched cherry (next time I won’t) but I keep telling myself th...

'This Old Crack House' #38: This Old Crack House...The house had all the curb appeal of a tent city

05-03-2007 06:18 PM by Dusty | 19 comments »

The curb appearance of the house was terrible. The yard had never really been taken care of and was overrun with weeds. In areas where the dog, old cars and other junk sat for long periods of time, the grass had died and large brown spots were left behind. The stucco was cracked, pieces broken out and long rust streaks ran down the side of the house. Most of the lower windows were no longer functional and all needed new caulking and glazing. Most had various pieces of the window...

A Beginner's Progress #2: The First Project Begins

06-02-2007 07:20 AM by jstewart | 7 comments »

I’ve decided to build a simple nightstand as my first project (or at least my first project since buying a table saw and joining The basic design of the nightstand comes from a fellow LuberJock. Check out the original here. Last weekend I bought the lumber, $65 of Red Oak from the local lumberyard with a great hardwood selection. I highly recommend this place (Schutte Lumber) to anybody in the Kansas City area. I pulled out the mitre saw to chop everything dow...

lucky day (7/7/7)

07-08-2007 06:34 PM by scottb | 8 comments »

Yesterday was busy – but good. Spent most of the day out and about – picnic lunch, movies, and packages in the mail – WooHoo! Ordered a box of assorted mesquite and ebony logs from BlueStingrayBoots. I’ll be surprised if either of us don’t get a bill from the mailmans chiropractor. I sure wasn’t expecting this much booty! (oh, yeah, and some new hearing protection.) Today is shaping up to be another hot day – so I’ll be heading off to ...

I'm a dad!

08-10-2007 05:01 PM by jstewart | 24 comments »

I don’t have much time to post this, so it will be short. Two days ago, on August 8th, I became a father. My beautiful wife gave birth (via C-section) to a beautiful baby girl, Molly Hannah. She was only 19 inches long but a healthy 9 lbs 3.6 ounces. So, I have a good excuse for missing the DeCou LumberJock picnic. I’ve got to get back to the hospital now. I’ll post some photos on Flickr later on. (I know this isn’t about woodworking at all. Sue me.)
