Even though the majority of fretwork projects are pretty complex and elegant, I have always liked the charm of a more primitive style. There is something about the simplicity of primitive and country decorating that never fails to put a smile on my face. When I lived in the Chicago area, much of my house was decorated in a country style, and I thought that it had a warm and welcoming feeling to it. One of the fun things about being a designer is that I am able to explore many different ty...
The Roof on our Apartment building sustained a little damage this past Winter. After the snow melted, I found the remains of two Slate shingles, out of the hundreds that are up there… The one in the front didn’t survive the fall, but the one in the back put me of a mind to make something, if I can only square it up a little…Back in my landscaping days, in the late “70’s, we cut tons of Granite for Walkways and Stairs. It’s a lot of work, but relatively e...
Today should be the final day of painting for me on my project. I realize that it has taken a while, but I really wanted it to be nice and something that I am proud to submit. I wish I were a faster painter. I am on a page on Facebook and I see the amount of work that these talented ladies make in such a short time and I am completely astounded. But I tend to pick and poke and take a while longer to accomplish something. Especially when I am designing and doing it for the first time. But...
I think it’s called an “Olund Tool,” made with a soft steel body into which a hardened steel bit is secured. I’ve made this for my lathe, and initial results look promising. I’m still pretty new at this whole turning thing, but it’s (surprise!) addictive. :D
First, I did add pictures to my earlier, background blog. Well, I did not master sketch-up, but I did get it to show the way I plan to start my storage wall. So, the plan is to attach the OSB to a 2×4, back-up the OSB with a sheet of vapor barrier foam with some type of construction adhesive, and then attach the 2×4 to the floor joists. The block wall this will be against is bowed and I am not sure how best to locate the placement of the 2×4s on the underside of the ...

It is to thick to scrap.
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1129: Site Update with New Patterns Available
I am happy to say that we got all the new items posted on the site and everything is updated. Things have been fast and furious here and we find that we are updating a little more often. Our usual schedule was to do so about twice a month, but it seems that we have so many new things coming out that every other week is a bit better. I think it is better to have slightly more frequent updates rather than a longer time in between where we have so many new things that it may become overwhelmin...
I have been known in the past, and even recently, to “kindly remind” people who post off-topic or rule-breaking projects to lumberjocks. While I get a bit of anger from it, mostly it’s from people asking “What’s the Harm”? Here is what I fear – take a look at our two “sister” sites and see what they have become: http://homerefurbers.com/projects http://gardentenders.com/projects UTTERLY horrible. Enough to make the entire s...
I finally got to woodworking in the shop after a year of on again/off again shop setup. I made the decision about a year ago to give up working on old trucks, and get back to working with wood, which is what got me into construction. My dad was a carpenter who had a workshop in the basement of our family home in Northern Illinois, and I used to spend alot of time messing around down there, whether working on my train table, which grew from a 4’x8’ table to eventually an additio...
