My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #856: A Bit Under the Weather

10-25-2012 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It’s already a beautiful day today. The sun has fully risen and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. It is cool out and calm, and the leaves are turning their final shades of amber before falling. How nice. I am running behind a bit today, so I will keep this brief. (I know – I always say that!) I have been fighting a bit of a cold and I am hoping that it won’t get hold of me. I haven’t been sick in quite a while and I am hoping that I can battle this without it g...

Scratch Awl Restoration

HelloIt is a lazy rainy Sunday and I am bored out of my mind. I am in between large projects and been cleaning up around the house and garage shop so I decided to do some small piddly things in the garage that have been sitting around… to avoid further cleaning up and get out of the way of my wife’s cleaning fit.I was reading Mr Lee’s(as in Lee Valley Tools) book on sharpening Saturday afternoon and read a passage about awls and diamond point cutters and how to sharpen th...

As The Lathe Turns #6: Lessons Learned In Bowl Turning

02-24-2013 12:02 AM by William | 12 comments »

Learning to turn bowls is becoming quite an adventure. It seems sometimes that the more I learn, the more I have to learn. It is a fun adventure though, so I think I’ll keep at it for a long time to come. Actually, the amount of knowledge and skill required I think is what makes turning even more interesting to me. A lot of wood working skills come easy to me. Sometimes, it seems they come too easy and there just isn’t much of a challenge to it. Therefore, something like turning, ...

Workbench #1: Workbench update and wrestling with Photobucket

03-10-2013 06:00 PM by Philip | 12 comments »

So I came home Friday and found the non-shop side of the garage looking like this: My Wife had cleaned/thrown out and organized that half of the garage and it was my turn to shape up and do some spring cleaning. I separated all my wood into stacks and threw out all the scraps that had no business being there. Below is a picture of the pieces I’m working on for the base. Got half the saw dust/cobwebs… This photo shows the underside of the workbench. I’...

Now material is acacia and finish coat is rough. Looks like someone applied poly and then made some scratches with wire brush or something. Do you have any ideas how to do it? Thank you so much

I have two planks. One is a Black Walnut 4/4 by 6” by 30” long. There other? Well, here is a clue Lovely, ain’t it? More on that one in a bit. I went after the Walnut plank, looking to smooth the faces of it first. A little time with a #6 small jointer, and a #5 Jack plane, and one face was ready for a smooth plane Bandsawn from a log awhile ago. Saw marks were easy to clean off.

Getting my tools ready #8: Still here!

04-23-2013 06:15 PM by DocSavage45 | 14 comments »

Haven’t posted in awhile re: my tools and shop. I have made progress and have shared that with a few LJ’s. I have succeeded in getting through my electrical inspection and now have an approved box in the Cau Haus. I ran metal conduit for my 220 single phase cabinet saw. Had some sticks of metal conduit from a project many years ago. Had to do some tricky(for me) bends and twists to get around ceiling joists and the metal gas pipe for the furnace. Of course I screwed it up! ...
