Woodworking for a Job ?

06-28-2010 08:52 PM by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

Where do you stand? The new or the old?

Technology – Old versus New Don Butler 6-26-10 It was a strange experience, finding myself in what I used to think of as the Older Generation. In my childhood and youth I was taught to respect older people.

Old veneer

08-07-2010 06:03 PM by BoxBuilder | 3 comments »

I recently was given a roll of old veneer. It had been wrapped in a large roll & the newspaper used to finish the wrap was dated 1959. It appears to be cherry ( but I am not a wood expert ) and it is about 18 inches wide & varies in length – some is about 10 ft & others are about 12 ft. What would be a good way to flatten sheets for use. I have done some minimal veneer work but most of the veneer I used was already flat. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.

Finally! A Day In The Shop

08-22-2010 06:35 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

As a busy summer winds down, I finally had a chance to get into the shop. Spend the day cleaning up clutter arrangong the floor mats and setting down a list of things I would like to get done before winter sets in. As my shop is small, everything is on casters and those on my sjoberg bench need to be made retractable to lower the bench to a better work height. I have three drawers that need to be installed on full extension glides under another bench. (I moved these from Milwaukee 2 and ...

Man its been a long time since my first post so I will try to catch you up on my progress. I have been plaining a lot of cherry wood at the start of the project. I filled up three 55 gallon drums of shavings! I extended the feed area and the out area of the plainer with 2X4’s and positioned the plainer at the double doors that open into the garage to accommodate the board lengths. Sure glad I thought if using double doors! Lots of boards to be glued up! Again using the garage (my ...

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high.

I recently finished my LVL Sitting Bench and delivered it to a local gallery on Tuesday for a “recycled” show. Then last night on my way home from work I get a call from the gallery asking me to come down becuase there was a problem. I arrived to see the following horror,Some lady was in the gallery and evidently let her 2 yr old daughter roam a little to far and ended up taking a ball point pen to the top of my bench. Fortunately, the bruising was mostly superficial, and aft...
