Hello All, I am back at my parents, as my computer broke. I couldn’t do woodworking, so I did some creative writing. It is a strange blog piece. Brian

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #4: Weekend #4 Finishing touches on the top and shelf

10-25-2010 04:21 AM by bohnsai | 2 comments »

Don’t have a lot of time to write tonight but a picture is worth a thousand word right? So here are some progress pics of this week. Construction for the top is similar to the shelf: biscuits and maple splines. Here is the bottom shelf wetted with mineral spirits. i and detail of spline Here I’ve used tape for the top so I don’t have to mark the actual wood for biscuit locations Here is a close up of some repair I had to do to one of the walnut top...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #15: Leg Joinery

11-06-2010 10:06 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Here’s some pictures of the joinery. All done by hand (except my coping saw blade broke and the jigsaw was closer than the store.) I had a bit of a blow out while chiseling from the top, still have the piece to go back in. I think I’ll end up wedging all the tenons. You’ll notice the two bottom ones are different sizes to allow for the sliding dovetail.

Extremely Average #292: More Henry Wood

11-17-2010 06:51 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello All, I have undertaken a new job, and it will take up much of my time, for the holidays. As some of you may know, I started blogging Jan 2, of 2010, and done so every day since then. I have posted links to most of the woodworking posts (which make up about 85% of my blog) here, and I try to focus the majority of my effort on woodworking. But over the next two months, I may have many days which are too full to allow for woodworking, and thus, a blog about my woodworking. So I a...

Hi friends I just wanted to let you all know that I was privileged to be selected by Greg and his wife, the owners of Oregon Burls to receive a beautiful and unique slab. This was in response to a contest Greg had on LJ’s. Due to work and weather it’s been a few weeks since Greg notified me that I had won his contest. As a matter of fact it was when David and Rick from LJ’s were visiting. I was really surprised that I was selected, but so happy...

Well i started off research by examining the furniture we have (as well as friends’). There are several fun tutorials on instructables.Then i moved on to the recommendations from my 1st post in this series. I really like the idea of a morris-couch. It may end up looking similar to the project post on rockler’s site. We went to Half Price books and bought some random furniture books and a couple of upholstery guides. As soon as it gets warmer i plan on getting out in the garage ...

Low VOC and Safety

01-18-2011 11:00 PM by Brian Havens | 1 comment »

(I copied the text hereafter from my latest journal entry so that my buds at Lumberjocks would not miss this safety issue.) It is hard to read an article about finishing wood, these days, without some mention of “low VOC’s”. These articles vaguely characterise these low VOC finishes as somehow good for humans. It reminds me of those Life cereal commercials that I grew up with: “What’s that?” “Some lo...

Block list Crap

01-31-2011 02:47 AM by Manitario | 80 comments »

So, I’ve been on this site for just over 200 days. Despite several of the more contentious discussions that have happened on this site, I have, to my knowledge always been respectful and courteous. I sign on today and read a discussion and scroll down to the bottom only to find that that person has blocked me (I’m looking at you Hobomonk). What gives??? What kind of stupid system is this that random people can block others for unknown reasons? In a public forum in which we are mak...
