'Written In and By Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

07-13-2007 02:45 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Written In and By Wood ....and so I capped the ending of last evening with a short walk in the woods, short walking is not like waundering and means I was only gone for about two hours, but then that also includes about an hour of just sitting in silence and hearing what the forest had to say. On the subject of ‘waundering’ let me just add, that all who waunder are not lost, but then some also ‘waunder’ as having slipped the veil….explanation, well maybe in an...

Workbench base in progess.... #4: The short rails...

08-15-2007 03:06 PM by Mike | 5 comments »

Well…the temp outside dropped pretty quickly (lower 80’s) this evening and I was able to get out in the garage and work on the base some more. I had a noble idea of hand chiseling the mortises for the rest of the base. I don’t mind doing this, but I want to get this base done so I abandoned that idea this evening. After chiseling last night for a couple hours and this evening for a bit more I decided I needed to utilize the tools at hand. I proceeded to turn on the drill pre...

A Beginner's Progress #4: Fun with a Dado Blade

09-22-2007 11:06 PM by jstewart | 5 comments »

Today I made more progress in learning woodworking. I ran to Woodcraft and picked up a zero-clearance insert for my table saw. I installed a Freud SD208 dado blade, 3/4” wide. I installed the insert, adjusting the fit using all of the set screws on the top, front and side. Once the insert fit snuggly, I clamped a 2”x4” across the top, from side to side. (I tried clamping it from front to back but the saw motor and fence rails made it harder to do it that way.) I turned...

What I did on my summer vacation

10-19-2007 06:36 AM by SteveC | 3 comments »

New here and thought I’d try things out with a few pics of my current project. Back in 2003 I built a 28’ x 40’ workshop in my yard…Recently I needed to move and rather than start over I moved the building too. Here is an attempt at a few shots in sequence of the moving and the new location once landed. Hope that worked as planned? This happened first week or 3 of August. Since then I started a bigger p...

MIDI Workstation #1: Veritas 32 Cabinet Building System or Building a MIDI Keyboard Workstation

11-12-2007 11:34 PM by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

For my birthday I got a MIDI keyboard which is currently sitting awkwardly on one of my computer desks. This is not ideal. Well I’m a woodworker. I should be able to fix this fairly easily! I started out looking on the Internet for ideas. I can say I didn’t find much. Then I started doing several drawings and finalized on a basic design. Lower Cabinet Plan In a former life I used to do 3D design (look here for examples). I think I am going to have to relearn this skill if I want ...

picutre frames

01-06-2008 09:17 PM by nickman | 4 comments »

Today I’m working on some frames to hold my CCNA and MCSA certificates at work. So I need two that hold an 8.5×11” document. Since I don’t really have a lot of my ideas of my own, I’m going to rip off this one: Greg Mitchell frame Well it’s not exactly a rip off because I don’t have any curly maple or mahogany, but I’ll use my silver maple and walnut. I’ll have to remember to thank Greg for the pictures and the idea. So anyway it s...

Inlay Blog Challenge

01-25-2008 04:38 PM by CharlieM1958 | 11 comments »

Once again this morning, I visit the LJ website to see what new projects have been posted, and I run smack dab into some spectacular woodworking. What cought my eye in particular today was this great inlay work on chests posted by bmgdad. Great work! I’ve done some straight-line inlay work, but I’ve really wanted to get into the sort of thing shown here. So my challenge is this: Would one of you guys (or gals) who is good at this sort of thing be willing to photograph the w...

Travels #3: An LJs Tale of 2 cities (YVR &SFO) - Part 3 - Rockler and Obi's Visit

02-15-2008 10:09 AM by Tony | 12 comments »

Day two: A not too early start, but we were heading to Pleasant Hill, CA, to visit the Rockler Store, where we had arranged to meet Matt ( ). As we arrived a little early, next door to the Rockler store was “Harbour freight”, after spending a good 30 minutes looking around and buying some items on my shopping list we entered Rockler store. You have to remember that I have never had this kind of experience before, we just do not have stores like this – ...
