Where in the world is GaryK

09-26-2008 03:07 PM by GaryK | 29 comments »

Well, the wife started working a while back and now I have a lot more father duties to keep me away from the computer. It’s amazing how a 1 1/2 old can spend your time for you. I still read posts when I get the chance and post comments when I see a fantastic new project. I have a new project in the works that I think will be pretty cool. I’ve been gluing it up little by little for over a week now. I am always “thinking wood” though!

and then it becomes....... #9: interior arch and columns

01-10-2009 08:47 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well here I am again. Joy to the world. LOL. I am working on the interior of the box and here is where it stands. The parts you see in the pictures are NOT attached in any fashion, in fact I have a piece of scrap pine holding up the back of the shelf that sits on the arch. There will be additions added that will hold this up, but ssshhhhh it’s a secret! I turned the columns out of wenge to match the handle and the base. Instead of turning a piece and then cutting it in half I took...

Beads Box #2: Laminated Sides are Cut

03-09-2009 05:32 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

So I’m very excited about this project as this is the first project that I’m using hardwoods on (everything prior was mainly plywood based except for face frames and other accents). So this weekend I had the chance to start working on this project, and start using my short-lumber-supply. I had my eye set on a piece of (what I thought was a) cherry that was just right in dimensions for the sides of this box. it was about 16” tall (to accommodate for the 12” tall box)...

In Between Projects

03-27-2009 05:30 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

Now that the Lego Table is done, I have decided that I really can’t take on any more projects until I sharpen my tools. I think my sharpening skills are pretty decent, although I recently learned of some things I could do even better. As a result, my decent sharpening of long, long ago has kept my tools sharp enough to justify (in my head) an insane level of procrastination. But can you blame me? I get a few hours of shop time a week, if I’m lucky. If I have a project in the wo...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #2: Template Solution: Opposite Man

04-13-2009 06:21 AM by newTim | 1 comment »

Some may remember the old Seinfeld episode where George decided his normal way wasn’t working out so he vowed to do everything opposite. While things started going in his favor Elaine’s life became like George’s old life and Seinfeld remained even. Not that that has anything to do with woodworking, I was just looking for something clever. In any event I mentioned in Blog 1 that in the original project I was fighting gravity so I decided to remedy the situation by doing th...

Lamp - Shoji, midcentury modern - inspired #3: Dimensioning lumber adventure

05-21-2009 02:23 AM by AaronK | 2 comments »

With 50+ pieces in this design, it’s now an adventure in dimensioning lumber. Which is made lots easier by my new planer, which works really well. The walnut, as i said before, was free, and quite warped/cupped/bowed. pretty much everything. So I needed a sled to help the planing/jointing/4-square process: built on particleboard, which isnt the best, but it did well enough considering that after using my table saw to do its most accurate, precise work demanded of it yet with ...

Dust Collector #3: Sealing up the Contractor's saw for dust

06-15-2009 12:39 AM by sjbob | 3 comments »

I’ve been planning on doing a backplate for my old Delta 34-444 Contractor’s saw to seal it up for dust collection..I looked at a couple of things online, and the diagram from the Taunton book looked very close, I recreated the positions and angles for myself, drew it up in SketchUp – but then could not print out lifesize drawings (so gave up on that). Next I played with cardboard, doing the radii with string & pencil, then followed it up today with hardboard. I was ...
