Kitchen Cabinet Challenge #3: Day 3 - Staples everywhere!

03-30-2009 07:45 PM by Bill Hall | 3 comments »

So I got everything apart yesterday! I guess you could call this a euro style cabinet due to the way it has been assembled. I could be wrong. The cabinet was assembled with tons of staples and very little glue. The back had two support pieces and one large piece of hardboard for structural support. Here’s a picture of my method for heating up and disassembling the frame and panel doors. I’m sure glad I made that mallet. I mentioned before the use of pins to hold tog...

sources and types of wood for turning

04-18-2009 01:40 AM by papabear | 2 comments »

I have been experimenting some more with the scraps I have around the house but they all turn out rough in comparison to the once piece of hard wood (no clue what it is) I first used. Any one have any recomendations on wood types for turning and where they may be found at economical prices? (in the Metro Vancouver area). Another thought, one of my neighbours has a cherry tree they trimmed last year. They have some of the thicker branches left. Is it a good idea to grab a couple of t...

Sam Maloof has left the shop.

05-25-2009 08:51 PM by wood_wench | 7 comments »

I was doing my typical free-time perusal of wood working blogs and sites when I came across the announcement that Sam Maloof had passed away on Thursday, May 21, 2009.After a genuinely stunned and heart felt moment of silence I began to reflect on what an impact this person, whom I never had the pleasure of meeting, had on my life. My very first adventure into wood working, beyond framing in doors and cabinets, was learning to build his signature rocking chair. My passion for wood workin...

003: under [garage] door shelving cabinet #2: Time lapse panel work

06-10-2009 02:03 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I recently remembered that my Canon PowerShot SD500 IS Digital Elph Longest Name For A Camera Ever has a time-lapse mode. You can set it to capture a frame every 1 or 2 seconds. I’ve been pointing it at my work areas lately with the latter (less frequent) capture setting, and just letting it run for an hour or two. It’s fun to watch later, though it pains me to know that no matter how hard I try, I’ll never accomplish anything at this speed. This is me doing some of the w...

Modified FWW Workbench underway.

07-23-2009 04:38 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

First off, I’d like to thank Marc Spagnulo (The Wood Whisperer) for giving me a clue about Lumberjocks. Had no idea this site existed prior to seeing the lj widget on his site… Now on to the business of my entry… I have been working on my own copy of the Fine Woodworking Getting Started in Woodworking design workbench, with a couple of either brilliant, or brilliantly stupid modifications. Not sure yet… Basically speaking, I love the base dimensions, but the t...

What Logs?

08-10-2009 07:07 PM by sw_iowa_sawyer | 4 comments »

I have a guy I know who has from time to time asked me to cut up a few logs for him. In the past I have always asked him what kind of log and diameter. I have cut some red oak for him and I cut a big walnut log that was filled with nails but, produced good lumber (minus the nails). He recently asked me to cut up some mulberry I asked him how big were the logs he said approx 20” in diameter which is a nice log size. I had never cut any mulberry so I agreed, and he said he would drop off...

A journey into the workshop. #6: The workbench is almost complete.

09-16-2009 04:24 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

There it sits, proudly in nearing completion glory. And it is almost usable! The dog holes, lower shelf, sanding, and finishing are all that is left to complete this project. I wasn’t sure I should post this one. The twist you see is an optical illusion. I have checked it with straight edges, levels, you name it. This thing is dead flat… My Central Forge 9” quick release vise fitted with wooden faces, and bench dog holes. Yes the back face of the vise is un...

A senior moment … at 48? David McClure teaches science and coaches at Faubion Middle School in McKinney . He is also a Teacher Voices volunteer columnist. $5.37. That’s what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bueno said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Emo hairdo said t...
