Christmas Time! What's on everybody's lists?

12-04-2010 12:43 AM by swampjack80 | 15 comments »

I asked for a new Woodriver block plane for Christmas from the wife. I haven’t a good hand plane and read some decent reviews on this little guy and figured it might be a good place to start. I tried to be considerate and not ask for a Lie-Neilson so I found it humorous when the wife’s response to the WoodRiver was “89 dollars for that thing!?”. SO just to prove to her that I’m not way out of line here, I figured I would ask what was at the top of everybody’...

Marquetry Serving Tray #1: Introduction/Design

05-24-2014 11:50 PM by jmartel | 1 comment »

My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...

Entertainment Center #1: First Try to Blog!

06-20-2007 02:49 AM by Dano | 11 comments »

Well, I have never Blogged before so I thought I would try and see how things go. I am really just getting serious about my woodworking; previously I have been a wood hack! I have begun my first real test, that is, I am attempting to build an entertainment center for a large screen TV. My wife likes “Mission” style pieces so I did some research and designed my first piece of furniture based upon that style. The process is just getting started but has already led to many first for me. If I ca...

Wood IDs #14: Figured out what kind of Eucalyptus it was that I found

05-31-2009 04:08 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

It’s a #2 phillips, based on the seed pods. In other news, I stuck all the old sets of the tree find and subsequent handlings (ongoing) into a collection here. I also went through and rotated some that were on their sides, added descriptions to some missing them, and finally made everything public, as I’d forgotten to on several, like these: That’s from May 4th, and shows significant shrinkage of the euc cup. It had been turned and sanded flush with the lat...

A different kind of challenge

07-27-2008 11:40 PM by Michael Brailsford | 2 comments »

A few years back Fine Woodworking magazine did an article that gave me a new inspiration. That was to utilize space on a piece of furniture that would otherwise be wasted and install a secret compartment. Now I don’t have sensative government documents I am hiding nor do I have priceless pieces of art I am trying to hide nor secret documents that once I give it to the press will make us feel differently about, let’s say, Coca Cola. I just felt inspired to try a new kind of chal...

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #4: Sawhorse the second - the 'aaaahhh' version.

08-03-2010 01:30 AM by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

I finished my sawhorses this afternoon—I have to say that having a sawhorse to use made building the second sawhorse much easier. It was also educational. I learned not to nail the sawhorse to the floor, and that the stringers should be nailed on the outside so that when you put your foot up on them to saw something they stay attached to the sawhorse and don’t pop off. This one was nice – I was in the zone. It went together like a dream, in very close to the titular...
