Trays #3: Titanic Serving Trays The Odd couple

03-25-2014 02:21 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

In the preparation of the end pieces I ended up with timber which I could not match up.So I put them aside for the time being and selected two other pieces. Well as I was setting up my band saw to cut the end stock I used a short piece of scrap to do test runs. This is them in the middle of the photo. I then selected one of the Odd rejects to do a “real” test The bandsaw cut quite well and this is the result I ended up with! I was very taken back with the e...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1262: Many New Projects in the Works

03-07-2014 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I missed posting yesterday because I didn’t really feel that I had anything unusual or interesting to talk about . Things here have been really busy and I find that some days I just don’t have a lot of new information to share. I am coming up on four years of writing here now (I had to check – I thought it was only three!) and while I have many, many new readers, I sometimes feel that I am being redundant when I tell of the ‘routine’ things that I did on the p...

The Non-Electric Chair #16: Enthroned at Last

07-30-2009 01:09 PM by lethentymill | 1 comment »

OK, it had to be sanded and damped and sanded again before it was ready for oiling, and it had to be oiled a couple of times before it was ready. I will oil my beech chair again, and the elm chair too, in a few weeks and build the finish on both over the years to keep them looking bright. It feels pretty good to be sitting on the chair but I’m reminded of King Canute. Did he really think that he could command the sea to stop encroaching on his shore? I looked it up and it seems that ...

Wood magazine

01-26-2015 01:15 PM by Ed | 3 comments »

Maybe I am alone on this but I find the site for Wood Magazine, to be one of the most annoying on the internet. I presume that if you are subscribed it would not be so bad. Do I really need three or four pop ups during each visit to sell me a subscription. I realize that memory if failing but really!! On another note I was going to post some pics of projects, but will have to dumb them down to get under the pixel limit?? I enjoy everyones input into this site. Many great ideas with good...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1339: Down But Not Out

06-20-2014 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It appears that I will be down for a couple of days. On Wednesday, after the gym, it seems I pulled a muscle in my lower back. It kind of threw me for a loop.I am much too busy doing things to have something like this take me down. So many ideas! So many projects to develop! As I said on my Facebook page – when is a GOOD time to have this happen?But happen it did and for the next few days I need to really switch it to low gear and take is slow. That is so against my grain!As we get...

Tool thoughts #1: The Beginning

08-23-2008 03:03 PM by NedB | 2 comments »

For all of my new (at this point in time anyway) LJ friends, I thought I would take a couple of minutes and go over how I got started in woodworking and where I hope to ‘go’ on this crazy journey called a woodshop. My woodworking hobby got its start a Long time ago on a small farm down in Drumore PA when I was around 13 . My cousin Lewis had a wonderfully equipped shop, with everything from a tablesaw to a metal lathe, he did it all in there. I got to use his bandsaw and sandin...

One Man's Junk - Chair #4: I hate sanding

07-09-2008 02:20 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Have I mentioned that I hate sanding. If I have not . . . I hate sanding. I left off the previous section with the pieces all cut with the bandsaw in need of sanding. Have I mentioned I hate sanding. Here are what the pieces look like up close. I recently purchased a drum sander kit for my drill press for $28 . . . I think it is a good deal. I was hoping to use it exclusively for sanding these items, however when I carpet taped the matching pieces together the...
