I went to Lowes and got my supplies and brought them to the shop, I plan on starting my project next week after WrestleMania 32
I’ve updated my workshop info because this week I brought home from Seattle a used, brand-new-to-me Woodfast short-bed bowl lathe I’m very excited about. I had to move things around to create a new work station for it, and am planning on making good use of the silver maple bowl blanks I’d stored up. New work coming soon!
Hey all. Yesterday was a doubly eventful day for me as my ‘Snakes’ cutting board topped 1500 reads. At the same time the ‘Zee’ box topped 700 in 1day. I am staggered, especially when I remember my first thousand reader took 57 days!. I’m really, really happy with this but I must take a moment to thank all of you who take the time to look at and comment on my work. When I joined LJ’s I never expected anyone would be this interested in my ramblings. Thank you...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1716: Developing Your Own Sense of Style
I did a funny thing yesterday. I wrote a blog in the morning and while I posted it on Lumberjocks (the woodworking site) I forgot to post it on my own site, Facebook, or any of the other places that I usually share it. I suppose I am not quite back to 'normal' after all! I am finding that getting back into stride is a little bit more of a process than I would have thought. It seems that sometimes once our general routine is changed or suspended, it isn't always easy to ...
Well, perhaps it was foreshadowing or some fancy trick, but I mentioned in my first (and last) post that the weather was starting to turn nice. I should have kissed the idea of woodworking over the summer goodbye right then… lucky for me I got the bug to start up again a bit earlier than expected. I spent maybe 12 hours in the shop over the two days of the weekend. It’s time to start finishing the projects that I have started, and to my chagrin, that total is currently four (ye...
This morning I scuff sanded all the parts with 320G, then applied the Seal-a-Cell to everything. That needs to dry over night, so I was done for today on this project. Here is a pic of a portion of the front rail with only the TT dye: This is the same piece after the Seal-a-Cell. I can’t see any difference in the pix, but it looked good while it was wet. Tomorrow should be really interesting to see what it looks like after the gel stain is applied.
Hello All, I just thought I would let you know that tonight’s post is up. It isn’t about woodworking though. I haven’t done a piece about Social Media in a month or so, and a few of my regular readers requested one. So I discuss Digg and will be checking out that site, to see if it helps my blog. http://digg.com/d31aCvy Brian
This week I started my glass table I cut the legs and had to face glue the 2 pieces of wood tog there for one leg. That’s all the others I’ve made on that because we couldn’t work for a couple periods this week
Is it just me ?I am contemplating quit reading LJ for awhile.(NOT REALLY)THIS IS THE REASON.EVERY DAY I READ AND SEE PROJECTS THAT ARE FANTASTIC. (In the 60’s it was “far out” 70’s was “cool” 80’s was “right on”, 90’s was “KEWL”)(I guess the 2010 word might be AWESOME) hard to keep up with political correct words.I then go out to my workshop and rather do the work that I should be doing I start to build the Jig that I saw...
