Week Excuse....

03-05-2007 11:14 PM by Philip Edwards | 3 comments »

Hi FolksI’m back – apologies for the week-long absence. Work has been busy and stressful…........I have made some progress on the fluted table. The drawer is mostly done (the dovetails, anyway). I decided to use the Blum drawer slides on the table and have been awaiting a couple of parts before I could mount them. Hopefully tomorrow they will arrive and then I can get on with it!I got a bit fancy with the dovetails. Not sure if I like it or not – need to live with them...

Sometimes Things Bug Me...

Ok, I yesterday that I was off and rocking after having completed much of a cabinet over my long weekend. However, this has been a very frustrating experience for me. As always I broke down the large plywood sheets using a clamp-on crosscut guide and a circular saw. The only problem was that this time, I could not seem to get the pieces square. Ok, so now I have analyzed it back to the break-down of the plywood. Now I just need to know how to aviod this the next time. My largest acura...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #4: All done but the finish.

08-20-2007 03:10 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I completed the other paddle this weekend. Both are all done exept for the finishing. I’ve decided against doing any fiberglassing. I’m planning on using the West Systems epoxy with the 207 hardener and then 3 coats of Epifanes varnish. I’m going to wait for the warmer drier weather later in the week. I’ve noticed big differences in the epoxy finish depending on the weather. I didn’t take as many pictures of the process on this one…basically the same as ...

Early Sunday morn

LuLu and my little buddy molly are sound asleep. Molly has been up, went outside and took care of her early morning chores, had her breakfast and has burrowed under the covers with LuLu. As for me, I’m having my coffee and yielding to the temptation once again to come here and try and saturate my brain with “electronic” sawdust…..I gotta’ get into the shop this afternoon, I’m having withdrawals.

The Best of 'Wood Art" #4: "Evolution and 'Wood Art' in the Process" --by RusticWoodArt

11-14-2007 02:52 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Evolution and ‘Wood Art’ in the Process ”Show me an artist, who has not had to hack his own way through the cluttered groundwork of those who came before and I will show you one who does not know yet their beginning to ending.” ....and so I’m taking some time out, to write some more notes and thoughts here, as I sift through those cascading files within my mind, looking for ‘original idea’….for the ”Upcoming Awards Event” Category: Not...

Finally, My Dream Shop #15: Ongoing Saga

12-13-2007 03:48 AM by Calgirl | 3 comments »

Well, we’re at the “Final Inspection” tomorrow. We’ve had two inspections since I last had a blog entry and of course, they found two more small things for the carpenters to do.We did get final approval on the electrical. The city has given us a final on the plans. Now, we just need the final on the carpentry. The GC is very upset, however, I have resolved myself to endless inspections and endless interruptions, so I am no longer anxious about the matter. I guess I have partially given ...
