My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #981: An Occasional Day Away

03-13-2013 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I took the day off of writing here yesterday and spent pretty much of the time drawing. With all the organizing that I have been doing lately, I really needed some extra time for some work. I am approaching my 1000th blog here and have been writing to you for just under three years now. That is a lot of writing and sometimes it is difficult to think of something interesting to talk about that I haven’t mentioned before. While I realize that probably most of you who have become regula...

That One Thing #2: Shoulder devils

10-05-2014 01:58 AM by fumehappy | 2 comments »

Nothing quite beats gallivanting on my Friday lunch hour to some choice estate sales. On seeing a local one recently, it looked intriguing, and I knew i had to stop there. It was on a stretch of highway notable for it’s steep climb up a mounting, and frequent closing during inclement weather. Upon arriving, I noticed the jointer. It didn’t even register on me that it was in the ad, as I had come seeking axes and possibly a dresser, but there it was. A beautiful, clean Delta...

What I Love About LJ

02-17-2010 05:20 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

A Big Thanks Yesterday, as I was learning to post photos on my new site, I got an email telling me that the image files were too big and it was leading to slow load times. I needed to optimize the photos for the internet. A few emails led to a phone call from fellow woodworker Troy Bouffard of Fairbanks, AK. He took the time to walked me through PhotoShop for resizing photos. Thanks to Troy, the viewing experience will be better with faster loading images. Who Is This Guy? Troy, a...

As The Lathe Turns #39: Time To Back Up A Bit

06-27-2013 11:26 PM by William | 10 comments »

Have any of you ever noticed that when things start going wrong, they keep going wrong? For me, once it starts, it keeps going until I just all of a sudden have a victory, or I back it up a bit. Since the failures keep coming, I figured it was time to throw it in reverse. What do I mean by that? I have a tendency to want to do things that are challenging. Some may argue that I sometimes even push the envelope too much, too quickly, on things. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. I k...

Small Painter's Cabinet #2: Planing The Fixed Shelves

06-06-2008 03:34 AM by Stephen Fields | 1 comment »

Each cabinet has three fixed shelves. Since I am building five of these cabinets I will need a total of 15 shelves. Sadly I only had stock wide enough for three of the shelves. The rest of the shelves had to be created by edge joining smaller width stock. Here is a picture of the stock after it was edge glued: Due to the twist, cups, etc., some of the differences between the bards were quite substantial. Here is one of the worst cases: Luckily since all of the stock needs to be ...
