Maloof Rocker - Padauk #3: Seat carving

08-24-2010 03:57 PM by yellowtruck75 | 2 comments »

Havn’t completed much work lately on my chair, my wife and I recently bought a new house so we are trying to sell our current one. Last night I was able to do my first rough grinding on the seat. Looks like I will be able to save a good amount of the white sap wood that runs through the seat. I also have started to glue up the back supports and rockers (no pictures). I have decided to add strips of maple into the rockers and back supports as an accent. Tonight I will spend a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #120: The Power of Attitude

10-01-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Yesterday I did an experiment. I wanted to see if I could make a really great day just ‘happen’. We hear so much about how our attitude affects the outcome of our day (week/month/life) but do we really believe it? Is attitude some magical and mystical force that is dictated by our own thoughts and actions? Or does everything that occurs in our lives just happen by chance? Hummm . . . . . We hear the saying about looking at the glass ‘half empty’ or ‘hal...

Stanley gets delivered,.... Stanley gets returned.

10-13-2010 03:14 PM by Rick Boyett | 9 comments »

In my last posting, I said that I had ordered a new Stanley Sweetheart No 62 low angle jack plane. I was really looking forward to testing this and putting it into the regular rotation for my hand tools. Unfortunately the plane that was sent to me had issues right out of the box. Mostly cosmetic. Among the issues were: 1. Tote was loose and had a small crack.2. Paint was peeling off the base of the plane from under the tote.3. Paint pealed off the base and stuck to the cap.4. Fla...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

Built-ins for My Daughter's Room #1: Built-ins Part 1 of ???

01-31-2011 08:09 PM by MikeGCNY | 1 comment »

This is the start of some built-ins that I am building for my 7 month old daughter Kate’s room. This is the first project that I am designing it in Sketchup. Our house is 83 years old and we don’t have much closet space. In Kate’s bedroom the closet conceals the attic staircase; so using the closet pretty much cuts off access to the attic. So to make up for the lack of a closet, we decided to build a wall of built-ins. The final plans call for a dresser with a hutch, a ...
