05-20-2012 11:51 PM by wlojr | 7 comments »

This morning I found this huge hunk of wood from my usual weekly scrap wood bin from a local cabinet maker, I rescued this huge hunk of wood I think it is cedar, it is about 3”x12”x20”, now I just need to figure out what do do with it there are some chunks out of one side, I have never sent anything through my planer this big, I have a small craftsman planer and its way too big for my 9” band saw.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #31: Staining Baltic Birch Plywood

06-21-2012 11:52 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

OK this may be a really dumb question but here goes. Staining Baltic Birch Plywood. When you purchase it does it generally have some type of sealer on the surface. I just got finished cutting a fretwork clock out of baltic birch and staining it and it looks horrable. My only choice it to attempt to sand it and apply a different stain method. I generally get my wood from the local Rockler store but sometime purchase some from Lowes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Tool thoughts #24: Saturday already?!

07-21-2012 03:15 PM by NedB | 1 comment »

My vacation is almost over… I’ve been off work for a couple of weeks now, which has been great on getting stuff done in the shop, but that’s about to end. Next week, I get back under way and start my travel-heavy work schedule. That means today, with a short pause to photograph a friend’s wedding (civil ceremony, not a lot of pomp & Circumstance, and Not a paid gig (I’m a pro photographer by trade)) I’m going to do as much sorting and putting away as I ...

starting to look a little more like the model… Finally, I think this is the first glue up I’ve ever done where I didn’t bemone not having enough clamps.

My 5 projects #8: New Project: a high chair, and one down; sort of.

10-09-2012 03:44 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

One down, sort of. The mobile butcher block has been put on hold for a while. The wife saw the cover of the Feb woodcraft and decided that she liked the mobile block they had rather then my design. This leaves me with 4 red oak table legs that may someday get used. The cutting board that was to be a part of it was finished and made a project here With that out of the way she immediately requested a new chair for our daughter which I am now well into. T...

Mjolnir (part 3), or, A lesson in sticking with the plan

10-26-2012 12:19 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

For all the evidence—-I mean pictures——please click here. As the title says, things didn’t go exactly as planned with the hammer the past couple days. I tried my best but it just didn’t work out as I imagined. Here’s what happened. Best pull up a chair and get some popcorn. It started after the handle was finally cut free from the excess wood. I decided to put all the pieces together and see if I like the general shape and weight of the mallet. H...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #873: Happy Monday!

11-12-2012 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Another Monday is upon us. Why is it the Mondays come so quickly? It is hard to believe that we are nearly half way through with November already and approaching the end of the year. Again. Looking back on the past year, it all seems to be a blur. I know we had a car trip to Cape Breton in there somewhere. Several days in the summer were spent cutting out witches’ hats and boots and Christmas stockings and packages. The day on the beach when I drew the snowmen. It all went by so quick...

Zachary's Lifetime Dresser #4: The computer model is complete

01-01-2013 11:15 PM by Weth | 1 comment »

Dear Me, I have spent much of the day completing the 3D model of the dresser. I have used similar construction found in the curio cabinet we have that is amish made. I had originally intended that the dresser have 3 false drawers across the top and I found it did not look right. 4 false drawers look much better. Here is the link to the sketch up model.SketchUp 8 Next on the list of to do’s is to make a cut list. Then I can go about sourcing the wood. Weth.
