Hi allI’m new to the site and woodworking but I have a question if anyone could provide some direction. I have discovered a love and dare I say talent for woodworking.I have made a good amount of product that everyone says I should sell. The problem is that I work full time so I cannot do the show scene(plus im not a sales person),i also feel no time for ebay and are websites a good way to go? wouldn’t I just be lost in the sea of other websites?I guess my question is are there pe...
I was out at the local hardwood dealer picking up some purpleheart, when I saw this sticking out of a bin. It’s very rough sawn (actually, it almost looks like it came off of a pallet somewhere), and someone had written “Jarrah? $1” on it. Naturally, I had to try it. It’s like one of those scratch-off lottery tickets – you might be wasting a dollar, but you could win as much as two or even five dollars! A little time with a jack plane reveals: We...
Yesterday I finished the third piece of the fence characters for Ellen’s fence project. For some of you who didn’t get a chance to read, I will refresh you. Ellen and Bernie are what I call my “Canadian parents.” Bernie has been a friend of mine since I came to Canada in 2004 and they have kind of adopted me. From the time I met him, Bernie offered me the key to his shop which has a full line of tools. Since I have rented small places since I have been living he...
So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a kickstarter.com project involv...
Well, for initiating in the subject is a good start … hahaha. For when the half-blind dovetails to make drawer fronts?Font: Richard ShedAnd the screwhead tape not wasted… lol Bueno, para el que se inicia en el tema es un buen comienzo… jajaja. ¿Para cuando las colas de milano ciegas así podemos armar frentes de cajones?Fuente: Richar ShedY la cinta de tornillos no tiene desperdicio… lol
Just a quick one. I had a bunch of rollers and decided to make some outfeed supports for my new table saw.
The mobile base has been painted and cured. I neglected to post a pix of the base prior to painting as I had no time. Here is the photo. Today after installing the casters, I’ll hoist the saw onto the base for a test fit. If all is well I’ll be on to assembling the saw-proper— extension wings, fence rails, switch wiring, cord and the side extension table. Next might be designing a mobile base for the side extension table. I don’t like the idea of a fixed ext...
The purpose of this entry is to talk about the router table that I have been building. I don’t know how long I’ve been working on it but since I’ve only been able to work on it in my free time it has taken longer than I wanted. I started out with a base cabinet that I got from a kitchen remodel that I was working on. I built a simple mobile base out of 2×4s and casters that I got at a local big box store. I wrapped this in 1/4” mdf to make it look cleaner. I ...
I was gone for a few days in the hospital for internal hemmoraghing but I’m back still alive trying to recoop my strength so I can get back to work hobbying….missed you all and your messages.
In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...
