My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1651: Thinking - The Unseen "Work"

11-11-2015 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are days when things fall into somewhat of a lull and other days when my head seems to explode with ideas.  Lately, it seems that I just don't know where to begin . . .From the viewpoint of an outsider looking in, it may have appeared that my day yesterday was one in which I accomplished very little. Besides doing the regular mail and customer correspondence (and of course, my blog here) I spent the day milling about doing the 'regular' stuff around the house and . . . ...

Work Shop Organization #3: Saw Storage a few tills

11-14-2015 03:21 PM by ChickenChaser | 1 comment »

So I have a few saws I have to deal with. They were all just laying about the place, or hanging on peg board. All random and out of place. I posted my saw till for my panel saw Here but here’s another shot of it. I also had some back saws to find a home. I went with quick and easy on this one. It’s just some left over fence pickets, glued together, and screwed onto my bench. They fit nice, and are at a good reaching distance. I just added some screws and nails to h...

Dovetail Box #20: Finishing Fun

07-01-2008 09:56 AM by Eric | 2 comments »

Well, after my last post I decided to back up a step. I sanded down a bit with 360 grit, and then without thinking I wiped the whole thing down with mineral spirits to make sure the sawdust was all gone. About halfway through doing that, I realized that I was also stripping off whatever finish I had already had on the box (or at least much of it)! Hah. Oh well, could be worse, right? So I went with Marc recommendation to use a straight wiping varnish with a 50/50 mixture of varnish (I boug...

Originals #2: Cupcake Box Prototype Finished

11-17-2015 03:24 PM by Sioranth | 3 comments »

I finished up the cupcake box prototype. I had to make some changes on the fly when I realized my original pattern wasn’t going to work because I forgot to account for some things. Overall though, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I plan on using my notes to go back and tweak the pattern until I get something that’s consistent. There are some other things I plan to try on future prototypes as well, like adding a shim or using a thicker wood for the cherry to get mo...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #9: The next progect

07-23-2008 07:10 PM by Betsy | 5 comments »

I’m nearing the end of my basic table blog and will be starting another project that will be more complex. Such things as groups, components, etc. Since I’m not allowed in the shop right now, I’m not going to tempt myself by designing a new progect. So what I’ve decided to do is to use SU to make a drawing of a project I’ve already done. It’s the hall table that I have posted. I’ll be finishing up the table ...

In Howie's Shop: thoughts and work in progress...

11-20-2015 04:32 PM by HappyHowie | 8 comments »

I have been sending text messages to two of my sons and at times to my two daughters. I would send photos and comments of what I was doing today in my woodshop. I am probably boring them, most of the time. Today I had the thought that I should put my thoughts and updates to work-in-progress in an online blog. So this is what this thread will be. Text in my blog can sit there and bore nobody, or someone who chooses to be. I will simply start with stuff I am working on today, without bac...

Art Deco TV Table #1: Form Follows Folly

11-22-2015 10:02 PM by newTim | 6 comments »

Or perhaps the title should be, “Form Follows Tragedy”? Here is the initial chapter of the design and construction of a most challenging project. But why would anyone ever want or need to build such a thing? What follows is the documentation of a two year journey into pattern making, wood bending, form construction, curved veneering, trim inlay, creative joinery, jig design, and the ultimate victory of patience and stubbornness over a project that fought me every step of the ...

Holtzapffel workbench project #4: question about the mortise and tenon joinery

09-09-2008 03:46 PM by martin007 | 3 comments »

Hi I am getting ready to make the joinery for the legs and stretchers. I wonder if I should build the joint tight or leave some space for wood movement. The stretchers (tenon) are 5 inch in width by one inch tick. In the book, they call for a tight joint. I wonder what will happen when that 5 inch wide tenon expend in width. the legs are pretty beefy 3 by 5 inch thanks
