Associated Press | Posted: Tuesday, January 12, 2010 10:00 am OLYMPIA, Wash. —Court papers allege that an Olympia woman, angry that her husband left her, tampered with his power tools so that he received a powerful electric shock. Carolyn Paulsen-Riat was booked Friday into the Thurston County Jail for investigation of third-degree assault, domestic violence, and second-degree malicious mischief. A judge released the 33-year-old woman on her own recognizance. The Olympian newsp...
Well, I got to spend a couple more hours on the shoe rack, but that is all the time allotted to me. It is gone and I can’t do any more work on it. My friend was in closet cleaning mode again and she needed it now :) Ok, so I was not able to paint it, I am hoping she will get around to it at a later date. So I will just give you the highlights of what I was able to do. Last update I gave, the carcass looked like this… Today, i was able to finish cutting the cove moldin...
Catastrophe today at the WoodRat. I explained in the previous blog entry how I plan to use a sort of blind sliding dovetail to attach the sides of my boxes to the bottoms. The bottoms are first glued up from smaller boards since they need to be around 12” x 9”. After final dimensioning, the bottom has to be cut into two pieces so the dovetail trench can be made without the ends of the trench showing. Then I trap the box sides in the trench and glue the two bottom pieces back...
Since this was going to be 32+ feet long I needed to build it in at least three sections in order to handle and transport it to the karate school. In order to maintain alignment in the shop and then at time of installation, I built in two joints that slide together using a plate of hickory wood with dovetailed edges like this one. Essentially it’s an over sized dovetail joint that uses friction to hold itself in place. The hickory piece was made to snugly fit into the first dovetail s...
Sorry to post a non-woodworking blog, but can anyone tell me how to respond to an individual who posted a comment on my blog? Its my first day on a blog site… please bear with me. TSW
The scary router table plate has been successfully drilled and connected to the router. Upon completion of this crucial step, there was a brief period of dancing. This of course was followed by 3 minutes of cheering from the imaginary crowd, and when the aforementioned crowd demanded a curtain call, I happily obliged. Historically, when I have approached the end of a task, the last 10% seems to be a dreadful pain to complete. I can’t say if I have reached the 90% complete mark, but ...
What’s happening in the shop for March 25, 2010. Yesterday I built two pre-cut murphy beds. This is where I cut the parts and for the customer and they build it themselves. Normally I build just the Alpine style, because it is the one I have the plans for. I now have the Hudson Bay and one of them was that style. The other style was a Bullock. I don’t have plans for that one, but it just involves replacing the face with a raised panel face. Today I’ll be working on B...
April, 2010 This month, in our April issue of our LumberJock eMag, I had the privilege of interviewing Thos. Angle. 1. How did you find LumberJocks and why did you join? First, let me say what an honor it is to be asked to do this interview. I can’t remember how I found Lumber Jocks. Maybe from Fine Woodworking Magazine. I know I instantly joined and felt at home. 2. you are known as our LumberJock cowboy but we also know you as the woodworker who is a master craftsman w...
Aaaargh! I’m…not smart. I was just working on a tapered leg for the end table I’m building. It’s a beautiful blank, made from two glued up pieces of cherry. I tapered all of the legs on the tablesaw the day before yesterday, so now I’m working on planing out the saw marks with a little Buck Bros block plane. About halfway down the length of this particular leg are some deeper saw marks that it was taking forever to reach. Because I’ve only had two or ...
Hey There Folks, I mostly goofed around this weekend. So today was fun as I got back into the woodworking. I went to ACME Tools, bought 2 small bits of popular and got to use my Stanley 4 1/2 for something other than making practice shavings. I am pretty fired up. http://bit.ly/bWQTzY Brian
