Christmas Project 2009 #2: Mortise and Tenon of the Game table legs

12-04-2009 02:14 AM by dryhter | 1 comment »

In this video I show how I mortise and tenon the legs and aprons. The first step is to evaluate or critiquing the pieces, I feel each piece on it”s own has positive and negative aspects that need to be addressed. Once evaluated the pieces can be shown for the best possible presentation of the project. If you are just starting out in woodworking it is a good idea to keep tract of your decisions to see how they affected the overall project. Evaluating and critiquing is a valuable ski...

Day Bed #2: Preparing The Parts

01-13-2010 09:17 PM by Kent Shepherd | 5 comments »

As you can easily see, there are a lot of parts to this bed. As shown in the first of the series, I had to glue up quite a few pieces before I really got into anything that resembled a bed. Now I want you to see the pieces, and how some of them are prepped. So far, the order doesn’t make a lot of difference, and to be honest, I’m not sure I even remember what order I did some of this. Each part of each section obviously must be made before the section is assembled. Again, keep in ...

Learning to design #5: Kitchen - wall of cabinets - approved design

01-24-2010 06:32 PM by mtkate | 2 comments »

Finally, I have an approved design to proceed. The ghost image in the foreground is where my island will be after I knock out the walls between the galley kitchen and the room next to it. The big gray thing on the right is my fridge (it will stay there). The square on the right hand wall is a window that I cannot move without LARGE expenses – so it’s going to stay. I added translucent glass to see what the arrangement will look like. The interior shelving is sized to ho...

Extremely Average #33: Henry Wood Detective Agency_Tuesday

02-04-2010 05:27 AM by Ecocandle | 17 comments »

The next day Henry arrived at his office bright and early. Francis wasn’t in yet, as he preferred to roll out of bed at the crack of noon. It was quiet and Henry took out the pencil and a pad of paper. He looked at the pencil again and then used it to write down 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 23. He added the number s up and they equaled 41. Next he assigned each number a letter, a, b, c, e, g, y. Leaning back he pondered his first two attempts, scratched his head, and dismissed them. Twenty minut...

Dowel joinery

02-25-2010 11:22 PM by NewPilgrim | 5 comments »

My neighbor and new buddy Paul has been teaching me how to do dowel joints, pretty fun. I am new to wood working so I am very appreciative when someone can demonstrate their skills for me. I am currently building a wooden, Victorian-style, (vintage) baby gate for our stairs. I am trying to match my current stair rail and baluster look-and-feel. I bought some Hemlock balusters, shoe rail/fillets and a nice hand rail. I’ve conditioned, and stained it to match, and so far it looks good....

Extremely Average #62: The Glockenspiel

03-05-2010 04:26 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

The first side is sanded and now I am starting to route flat the other side. I believe this second side will go even better, as I am clamping down onto a flat side. I have just started and the cuts seem to be more uniform. This seems like progress to me. Earlier today, I got a message on Linkedin from a friend. She had found a writing contest, which required that one submit a story, under 300 words, using purple, tree, and glockenspiel. I felt that the gauntlet had been tossed at my fe...

My Antipolo hills home project made from recycled wood.

04-08-2010 05:44 PM by Benji Reyes | 13 comments »

Hi fellow LJs, I would like to share with you and invite you into my home, my heart and soul! Together with my team of students, I started building my house in 1998 for my wife and two daughters. It is located on a severe slope on top of a hill with a majestic view of Laguna de bay. It has been a 12 year work in progress and it’s almost done. It is my tribute and testament to Filipino ingenuity, design and craftsmanship. It is where I get all of my design inspirations. The entire house ...
