Weekend Work A Coming!!!

03-11-2011 05:45 AM by GreenNewbie | 1 comment »

Excited about this weekend. I’m going to start working on making two of the Woodsmith Shop Peg Board storage shelf/cabinet. But, the more exciting part is hooking up my dust collector to some tools for the first time. I know my wife will be a lot happier with most of the saw dust not on everything in the garage :) Also, the other day I decided that I will be making both of my daughters a dresser. Should be a lot of fun to design and build!!!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #327: A New Opportunity

05-02-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday seemed to go by very quickly. I spent the day writing the instructions for my two projects that are going to the magazine for the holiday issue. I am pretty much finished up though and the package will be ready to be picked up today or tomorrow. They should have it by the end of the week. Writing instructions is a very important part of my job and it takes a great amount of time. The more I talk with and answer questions for people, I become more aware of what information to ...

Belt Sander Suggestions #1: Looking to purchase a belt sander

05-25-2011 01:07 AM by DamnYankee | 9 comments »

I’m looking to purchase a belt sander and looking for recommendations. As I’ve never had one before I don’t know how much I will use it. Based on past experience with new tools I will use it more than I do now and more than I think I will. I know I prefer to spend the money, when needed, on a good quality tool up front (buy quality pay once, buy junk pay several times..usually more than you would have if paid up front). This is not to say money is no object but… T...

QUESTION OF THE WEEK #1: Type of Woodworker?

07-06-2011 03:07 PM by MsDebbieP | 74 comments »

  What kind of woodworker are you?   “I am ….”     1. “a galoot” – give me hand tools and I’m happy     2. “a more power person” – power tools, hands down     3. “a mixer” – just get the job done, whether it’s hand or power tools

Art Prize 2011 #4: Ready to Cut

08-05-2011 04:32 AM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

I glued in the rest of the pieces today. The big three (Americas, Eurasia-Africa-Australia, Antarctica) were glued in with wood glue and then weighted. I let it dry for about 10 hours and then brought it up on the router table. Lightly etched where the top layer pieces go and then busted out the industrial CA. It comes with a spray-on coating for one piece and glue for the other side. WORKED AMAZING! Everything is settled and hanging out happily on the table. Tomorrow I start cutting. ...

1 man saw restore #1: de-rust

11-01-2011 05:16 AM by Wayne | 3 comments »

A couple months ago I found a few of old saws- I havent had the time to commit to a detailed “project” lately, so Ive been piddling with returning these geezers back to work horses. (With much inspiration from you lumberjocks!). While waiting on the drill press frame to get braised, Ive started on this saw (far right in above picture). It needs a good cleaning , and a new handle. The set is actually fairly decent, and some might say sharp (?)......some.Anywho, first coated the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #539: Formula for Success

12-01-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I really had a full and busy day yesterday. I had a lot of fun, too. There are days when my job takes me in many directions at one time and everything is manageable. Those are the days when I go to bed feeling like I really accomplished a lot and have everything under control. I hope there are many more of them to follow. I like to talk about these things because it is a time when all the work and experience comes into play. I want to show people that there is hope for having a busine...

Community Woodshop #3: Momentum is Building!

12-18-2011 08:18 PM by communitywoodshopLA | 1 comment »

Since the last post I have been very busy figuring out how to make this work. I have met lots of generous and helpful people including architects and designers, artists, lawyers, engineers, and teachers. I found a great business partner and we are working on some really exciting ideas. Like I said before, Community Woodshop is not a new idea and when you start something new the best thing to do is find out what has been done before. So, my partner and I decided to visit the shops in the...
