Reward Board #1: Design Sketch

03-23-2011 04:44 PM by hodgepodge | 2 comments »

My significant other and I decided it would be neat to have some sort of way to track the little ones good behavior, so we came up with the Reward Board. The children will have pieces (whatever they choose to be) that have dowels in the back. Each good deed will leave them closer to the star on the right. Once they get there they can exchange for a prize or continue to save for a bigger prize (this is kept track by little stars that go in the three holes to the left of their name). ...

Best Ever Home Shop Ideas 2011 seems strangely familiar...

04-18-2011 03:53 PM by dbhost | 17 comments »

LOML and I were at the BORG Saturday picking up some potting soli for her lillies, when we were standing in the checkout lane when I saw something oddly familair… Wood Magazine special interest publication “Best Ever Home Shop Ideas 2011”, but I don’t have this magazine, so why should it seem so oddly familiar? Well upon opening up the display copy I found that every single article, everything except for dates, and advertisments, is EXACTLY the same as Best Ever ...

"a Hunter's cane" -- finishing scenery and starting burning

05-02-2011 05:30 AM by mpounders | 4 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on the carving portion over the past three days! I used the same techniques previously mentioned to outline and then relief carve the fish that will be on the back portion of the cane. I then used a knife to remove the background that is the lake… I’m wanting the lake to be a lower level than the deer, leaves, and fish that I’ve carved. I use some shallower profile gouges like #5s and #3s to get most of it down. I have a long (1 1/2̶...

Trying out the Consignment Route #4: A bit of feedback and a photo!

06-20-2011 09:58 PM by KnotCurser | 8 comments »

It’s been just shy of twenty days now and my curiosity got the better of me. I picked up the phone and gave the shop a call. As always the co-owner who I talked to could NOT have been nicer! She stated that while my works were generating a TON of conversation and questions, none were sold yet. She is hoping that the upcoming 4th of July weekend is approaching and to “keep our fingers crossed”. I have a feeling they are priced a tad bit high and will have to be low...

Roubo Cabinet #15: Hardware

07-20-2011 10:44 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 9 comments »

Q: What do you call a drawer that doesn’t open?A: Rework. Okay, lame joke but it’s a decent intro to the challenge of finding drawer pulls for this Roubo Cabinet of mine. Design constraints? Not many, but they’re important ones. 1. Stout enough to work on drawers full of tools (potentially heavy)2. Aesthetically in sync with the cabinet (I’ll know it when I see it)3. Hardware can’t stick out / interfere with the sliding deadman First thing I thought of were those wildly unde...

Estate/Garage Sale Finds #2: Great finds!

08-05-2011 01:36 AM by hodgepodge | 7 comments »

Alright, this was the most awesome estate sale I have ever seen (out of three…). I guess I will continue this series with what led me to go check out the sale. Here’s the picture which made me stop by. The description of the estate sale says how there is an unbelievable amount of hand tools and power tools. This picture doesn’t do justice in regards to how much stuff this guy had. He must of had some sort of combo plane infatuation. I picked up these two Stanley No. 4...

Vortex Dust Collector Modification using a 14" wok #3 Conclusions/Observations'& Opinions

08-16-2011 06:36 PM by Toolz | 2 comments »

This morning I jointed an sanded a 16”x36” x4/4 piece of the “mystery wood” that I have since learned is probably American Sycamore. I have a metal trash can with a Woodcraft lid used as a pre-separator that catches the large chips etc. from the jointer. After milling and sanding I removed the canister to take a look. Wonder of wonders it did not have nearly as much sawdust caked as I had expected to see. I think removing the copper tubes that I used to lower the wok w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #463: (Happily) Back to Drawing

09-16-2011 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am pleased to report that although yesterday had a shaky beginning, in the end it really turned out to be a good day. I am learning my way around this customer service maze that I find myself in sometimes and I am actually starting to figure out the right person to contact when certain issues come up with my website. I know that sounds like it should be a given, but when maintaining the websites’ ability to take and process orders, it involves several codependent elements which al...
