Score! #2: Mexican Fan Palm Trunk Chunks

12-02-2015 11:18 PM by Mark Wilson | 18 comments »

The subject: The Muse: Kevin Mcneally These two Mexican Fan Palms have graced my neighborhood’s sunsets, and moonscapes for decades. The neighbor decided she didn’t want them anymore. they were cut down today. I brought home a handful of foot-and-a-half long, ten- to -twelve-inch diameter chunks, and one about three-and-a-half feet long. Some of you really smart Buddies, I’m sure, can tell me what I need to do to use...

Extremely Average #64: Progressing Slowly

03-07-2010 04:10 AM by Ecocandle | 12 comments »

The flattening of the router table top took slightly less time than it did for China to put up a wall to keep out the neighbors’ goats. I estimate that I spent around seven or eight hours flattening my laminated table top. I would imagine that, if I had run the boards through a planer, and then did some sanding; it would have taken less than 30 minutes. That is ok though, as I enjoyed myself and it is done now. I really like the breadboard look. My friend Ryan made a really cool co...

Updating the shop #2: Bench Completed

03-15-2011 12:02 AM by mrg | 5 comments »

So this past weekend I was able to complete the workbench with the help of my wife. I found that drilling holes perfectly straight with a hand drill is not as easy as one may think. I had to re-drill the holes in the legs slightly larger to make up for my inaccuracy. My bench top drill press is just a little small to be able to drill thru a 4×4. It worked great to do the recesses for the nuts to go on the rods. After altering the legs we were able to assemble the bench pretty easily....

My path to professional woodworking #3: So just what should I charge for this thing I'm building?

01-16-2010 10:43 PM by hangdog | 5 comments »

The last post logically progresses to the above question. Ironically The Wood Whisperer has helped me out again with this new posting on his site: He shares his technique with the disclaimer that he his not a business consultant and you can certainly consider the same for me. Anyway, the method that he shares is similar to mine and has worked well in the few paying projects I’ve done thus far. I’m pretty handy with Sketchup as w...

12-31-2010 04:57 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

I found wood.. close buy… ok now what?I bought 8 board feet of ribbon sapele to build a bench for my wife. While we were shopping that day we like to go to second hand shops. We stopped at an antique shop and i started digging around and found a 6 by 1 foot board in the back of the store. It was black walnut and very figured. I asked the old guy what he wanted for it. He scratched his head and said “20 bucks”. I said “sold”. So I got home and started to try t...

Sales Catalog Pricing Application or Template

08-18-2013 07:50 PM by N3FSD | 2 comments »

Many of my friends have been asking me for a copy of a “sales catalog” that shows pictures and prices of all the handcrafted pens and products that I have made? I imagine that I could just start cutting and pasting pictures of each of me pens, and then adding materials types and prices, however that seems to be a lot of work and has the potential to become unstructured and non-uniform, i.e. different sized pictures, formatting options, lack of table of contents, titles, etc. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1555: Smaller Bites

05-19-2015 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Not everyone likes the same things. I know I am stating the obvious, but sometimes, as much as we do realize it, we forget that.I am no different. I see something I like and I find myself assuming that everyone I meet will like it as well. Be it food, a movie or even artwork or techniques. But having a partner like Keith helps keep me looking at things using realistic eyes. He and I are very opposite in our tastes and preferences. There is an old saying that 'opposites attract' and I ...
