wood with web #1: thoughts on separating tension and compression

11-27-2008 11:06 PM by Justus | 0 comments »

Those of you who have already seen my projects might have noticed the abundance of web clamps. I kind of like them. They are cheap and handy. But that’s not all that makes them an ideal companion for wood. The straps those web clamps are made of have a rather low modulus which means they expand if you put force on them – quite in the same amount wood does. They actually have a similar expansion/shrinkage with changes of humidity compared to wood. Quite unlike steel. Screws and nai...

Merry Christmas

12-23-2008 05:42 PM by Bret | 4 comments »

I haven’t completed any woodworking projects yet, but a few weeks ago I found this video of my contribution to last year’s Christmas Eve service at my church. It’s a rendition of “O Holy Night” on saxophone (I play tenor and soprano) and I’m posting it here even though it’s outside the normal topics here in the hope that it brings some joy, peace, and love to anyone interested enough to listen. Thanks again to all the LJ folks for the warm recepti...

So I have been working furiously for the past week or more on completely redoing my website.

If you have the link to the old site, it will automatically redirect you to the new site, though I may scrap that old domain name, so it is advised that you change your saved link to the new www.cocoboloboy....

Well If I told you once I told you 17,000 times. Well at least I said something 17,000 times. Dang this place is addictive. It is my drug of choice. I love ya all. Now make sawdust. I can’t I’m too busy typing. And it’s cold in the shop and I’m too cheap to turn on the heat.

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-02-2009 04:06 AM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

Headboard challenge #1: 1st the planning.

06-08-2009 03:55 AM by TraumaJacques | 3 comments »

This is my challenge. I have been asked to make this Queen size antique headboard into a King size. My client had asked me to built a head board for her, I was busy and said it would be a few weeks before I could commit to it. She found one on an internet classified add for a lot cheaper than what I could build hers for. The problem is that it was advertised has a King size but is in reality a queen size ( you get what you pay for right). Now $350.00 later she came back to me to see wha...

07-01-2009 12:45 AM by kosta | 2 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so the moving truck came last Tuesday and they delivered all my stuff to norfolk Let me tell you something you got a whole new respect for movers after I saw the corrigan united van lines crew.

Well basically I finished setting up my shop and I filmed a shop tour yesterday and because I havent had internet access in 3 weeks at any house I havent...
