Back in the game

03-29-2008 02:28 PM by Kaleo | 9 comments »

I thought I would send this out to everyone. It’s been awhile since I have had a decent connection, so I haven’t been around. But I am back in business as far as the internet goes. So I have to go through a lot of the old projects and blogs and catch up. I’m just starting to get the shop set up and I am documenting the whole process and will be posting the videos at my other blog site Kaleo's Workshop. So check it out, the first video should get out Monday or Tuesday....

One day I just got fed-up after having mis-adjusted a marking gauge. I said to myself “self, I am sick and tired of always having to adjust my gauge for the mortise chisel width”. Took a lot of work—haven’t regretted the time spent a bit. I didn’t really know how to use a spokeshave before I began this: I do now!

Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

05-27-2008 01:41 AM by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...

Hand Tools doings #24: Excellent customer service

06-24-2008 01:35 AM by Betsy | 8 comments »

Well——- as you know I’ve been collecting my toolbox full of hand tools. I recently bought a low angle block plane from Lee Valley. It’s a good plane. The one I received however had a small problem. I could not keep the brass toe knob tight and after several strokes the mouth opening would change. Aggravating for sure. So after deciding I needed a solution I e-mailed LV customer service. We’ve gone back and forth with e-mails, me explaining the problem, them askin...

Squirrel Whirler #1: Materials and getting started

07-17-2008 12:16 AM by steveosshop | 6 comments »

I thought I would start bloging some of my projects from start to finish. This is a really easy project that will be given to my parents once it is done. They have woods all around their house and enjoy all the wildlife in the woods. My wife and I had planned to buy one of these, but seen a price on one in a country shop and I decided to build one instead. This is the starting point. I dont think it should take long, so maybe by tonight I can post a pic of the completed project. Anyway heres ...

The polls are closed... can't wait for the results!

08-07-2008 11:36 PM by itsme_timd | 9 comments »

Well, the polls for the Summer Contests are officially closed now. Results are coming by tomorrow morning, I’m excited to see how it turns out. Some of the projects on here are unreal. They go well beyond a “woodworking project” to a true work of art, I could easily see some of these pieces landing in a museum. Always makes me want to improve my skills and learn new things. Good luck to all that entered and thanks Martin for another great contest!

Changing Table #1: Got it started Babe!

09-03-2008 02:18 AM by Les Hastings | 6 comments »

This blog is mostly for my Daughter and Son-in-Law they live just outside of Dallas. I’ll be building a changing table and crib for my new grand daughter that’s due in November. I’m just getting started even though it was ordered way back when they first found out. I’ve been working seven days a week trying to keep up with our regular clients. I told all of them that starting in September I had to stop everything and build my new grand baby’s crib. So my Daughter...

This week in urban logging #9: One mans trash...

11-02-2008 03:57 PM by Daren Nelson | 7 comments »

Has been my treasure. I got into urban logging for a specific purpose I thought, to utilize wood that I saw going to waste. A lifelong friend of mine and I got back in touch recently after a few years of having drifted apart , work took him out of state. In our conversation he commented that I have always been a “dumpster diver” citing examples from as far back as elementary school. And once he visited my website and read what I was up to he thought it was perfectly fitting having...

Hall Table Designs Would like Your Feedback

12-03-2008 03:44 AM by bfd | 23 comments »

I recently picked up some 8/4 Walnut and a beautiful piece of 4/4 Jatoba. I have decided to build a Hall table and have come up with two designs that would exploit the grain of the Jatoba. I would like your input on which design you lean toward. Idea 1 is modern and the concept is that the frame is mitered in two directions to create a continuous “ribbon” of walnut that is unbroken. I will either do a contrasting keyed miter joint or a miter slip joint. I may or may not ...
