Exercises in Artisanship #32: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 3

11-14-2012 07:16 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hey everyone nice to get back into some cabinet work and leave the spoons and hatchet on the ole choppin’ stump this time! Between the hurricane hitting…then the snow storm post sandy, my bench and pine planks got a bit ignored. This project is more based around something fun and really useful as well as getting more exercise with hand chisels in regarding chamfering edges. Basically I have found that if you can go to a work bench and hand chamfer with skill using a chisel then it...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #4: Joining the sides on the top

11-29-2012 09:53 PM by Kyle | 3 comments »

I don’t know if it’s a mistake or not to do it this way but, I decided to join the sides together just like I did on the sides themselves. I’m not sure this will create any kind of ultimate weakness or not but, there was enough stock in the legs to do dovetails for both of the rails.....Here’s the first cut. Tail first….......These look pretty good to me........Now to chop out some the housing for the dovetail….......chop chop chop…........Very snug f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #907: Stealth Mode

12-18-2012 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am finding out that having a blog that is somewhat popular makes it very difficult to write sometimes during the holidays. While I like to talk about the current projects that I am doing and things that I am working on, there are many things that I want to be a surprise to the recipients, and I know that most of them stop in from time to time to read here, so I can’t even mention them. So today, I still have some preparations to make. I need to remain here in ‘stealth mode&...

Reflections on Learning How #2: To Set Up Your First Shop

01-03-2013 07:59 PM by FeralVermonter | 3 comments »

The first mistake, at least if you’re wired like me, is in thinking too much. If it’s your first shop, just go out there, slap a couple of boards on a couple of sawhorses, and start playing around. The thing is, if it’s your first shop you probably don’t have a really good idea of how you’re going to work, in your own shop. So think about it for an hour or two, then get out there and get something you can work on slapped together. You can always change it a...

New facebook page for largewoodslabs

01-30-2013 04:12 AM by WoodLe | 3 comments »

If you like slabs, check out my new facebook page for the latest available slabs for sale. I will try to keep it updated with the most recently cut and available slabs, and also any other news that I think you might find interesting. I’m a little bit behind in cutting right now because I am in the process of building a bigger and better mill. But hopefully in the next couple of months I will be able to increase my inventory substantially. Thanks, -Leon

Mother & daughter toolbox #4: Getting distracted and sidelined

02-26-2013 08:23 PM by ejvc | 4 comments »

Does your inspiration come from children’s books? Yesterday in the library we happened upon a book called “Castor snickrar” (Castor does carpentry) which is a child’s illustrated book about a beaver who is building a toolbox on his grandfather’s cabinetmaking bench. Much of it focuses on the names of the tools he uses, very handy since a) they are the very handtools that we have (eg brace and bit, hand drill, mallet) and b) I don’t know the names of any of...

Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga #5: Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga

03-27-2013 02:47 AM by justoneofme | 11 comments »

Welcome back everyone! I’ll jump right into this next blog from where I finished off last time. Thankfully things are progressing … although my pace may seem rather slow! I actually consider myself extremely lucky if I can manage one full day in my workshop each week. Ecstatic if more than that!! Most days I’m split between family, friends, domestic chores … and now that the weather is finally showing off in the most awesome way, spring gardening has been taki...
