I received the latest issue of Wood in the mail today. As everyone knows, Martyn's Zee is featured in this month’s issue. Very good article on his EZ Mitre technique and more than a brief nod at the box maker himself. Wood has also provided some space on their website to showcase some of Martyn’s work. Congrats Martyn, once again, on the recognition of your work and the ingenious methods you have invented in order to create them. David
I came in today to find my lease mate had left one of the windows open and the screen up. SO I went to close it and a was almost knocked over by a bird that was hiding in one of the plants near the window. So I opened all the windows, but our place is huge, so the bird seemed to have just disappeared. A few hours later I saw Debri.. our shop cat crying that funny hunting sound and running around in the wood stacks. She had found the bird.. a tiny little finch. The bird flew around the studio ...
Spot my daughter in the bottom left doing her own version of speed painting! I didn’t realise she was in frame until I edited the video afterwards but I see now how good she was keeping herself busy while I had the camera rolling to complete the project. http://youtu.be/ryiF4aIWRzE
After completing my first woodwork project, I realize that there are tons of things around the house that I can fix myself: - doors that don’t close properly- increase storage space by building/adding shelves- fix wobbly furniture (chairs, bed frames)- build hook strips/hangers for hanging clothes Some of the larger projects I look forward to getting into include: - building two benches by our main house entrance (inside)- build a fence around our small yard My absolute #1, ...
My son is doing a project for a school competition and a couple of months ago he came across some photos of the Blacker House chair and fell in love with it. He is a big fan of the Greene and Greene style and is currently reading books on the history of the Greene and Hall brothers. Here’s the problem his project has to be complete in March. We have spent hours searching the web and everything I find is incomplete and very inconsistent. We contacted some people on the web that we kn...
hi everyone. this is my first blog, i am getting some help from my dad but he says i have to type it all my self. This blog is going to be to my best ability, so try to have patience :). I want to show you how to build an Infnity Mirror. I got this idea from Laney Shaughnessy’s web page. www.asimpledesignofocala.com he has a video there that you can follow too. The infinity mirror is a great project for kids. The purpose of the infinity mirror is to make lights reflect inside a box and ...
I tend to be a bit of a hoarder – a woodworking hoarder. And with that there have been times when ,y workshop got to be a bit of a mess. This footage is almost a year old, but my workshop is a lot more organized now! Honestly, my workshop used to get like this all too often and then I’d have to take a day to clean up to start a new project. NOT an efficient way to work – let alone not being safe either.Nonetheless, here it is. Hope you enjoy the video. For some reason the...
I had a pretty decent day of work yesterday. As usual though, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. There always seems to be lots of things to do that get in the way of woodworking and designing. It seems that Mondays are like that sometimes, as I am catching up on the things once the weekend is over. I did get the Happy Birthday pieces sanded and oiled. I made two sets with the intent of staining one set and leaving the other one natural. They look good and fit on the topper n...
Bjorn is 5. Very bright, inquisitive, analytical and thoughtful. 101: We started on this helicopter, his idea. He lost interest pretty quickly, so I chose not to make it a requirement that he be involved. I just went ahead and put it together. He said he’d rather clean. 102: We plugged his ears and plugged in the vac. Grampa and grandson, matriculating as needed.
