The grinch that stole Christmas. #1: Christmas gifts delayed?

2423 days ago by IowaWoodcrafter | 2 comments »

I’m making twelve mantle clocks for Christmas this year. Each of my four sisters will receive one, my brother in-law, father in-law, mother in-law as well as my two oldest children. My two youngest sons are in the Navy and don’t have anywhere to keep a mantle clock. I’m also keeping one for the house. I’m not sure what I’ll do with the remaining two clocks. Anyway, I ordered the clock inserts from last week and they were shipped on Monday. I&#...

Last Saturday, May 3, my son and I had the privilege of attending the Highland Woodworking 30th Anniversary. Under the big tent they had master woodworking craftsmen of all kinds as well as vendors. There were carvers, turners, a timber framer, a guy hand carving gun stocks and so on. The highlight of the event was watchin Roy Underhill from the PBS show “The Woodwrights Shop”. I was even allowed to make a feeble attempt at Roy’s foot powered spring pole lathe. Of cours...

I had forgotten how horribly boring and draining looking for a car was. I’m glad it’s not something I experience every day. I was leaning toward the Honda Civic Coupe—- but after driving it, I did not like how it felt or how small I felt behind the wheel. So in the end I set...

Aalto Inspired Tea Cart #2: The Wheels are in motion!

2226 days ago by bfd | 11 comments »

The first order of business was to start on something simple for this project…Cutting the wheels. Since the client wanted painted wheels I decided to do them out of MDF since it will be stable and paint out very well. Using my homemade circle jig I set the jig to cut a 14”DIA circle. Taking a light 1st pass I go down to about 1/4”. I then took my jig saw and followed just inside the outer edge of my router cut to remove the bulk of the material. I then followed up with m...

The Journey Begins

2155 days ago by trifern | 26 comments »

I just received news last night that I have been accepted into the “Fall into the Arts” show to be held in early October. I am flattered to be included in a juried art show. I have never shown or sold my work before. I have donated pieces for charity auctions and given away pieces as gifts. I need help from my fellow Lumberjocks. I need to select 2 pieces to be entered for judging. Any suggestions on which of my pieces might show best would be greatly appreciated. I also welcom...
