Stickley inspired Entertainment Center #11: Stain Before Glue

06-05-2011 04:56 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

Stained this unit before gluing and I had much better results than I did with the stain when we made our X-box 360 Entertainment Unit. . On the X-box Unit the vertical edge where a shelf meets the side support shows darker stain. On this method there is no stain inconsistency in the vertical side since it was done at one staining.

Rush Seated Bench #5: Finished Stool

03-10-2011 03:02 AM by woodworksbyjohn | 0 comments »

Here you have the finished project. Like everything most of us do, we look back at it and know there are skills we’ve learned and new things we’ve accomplished. Over-all I’m very pleased with this stool. It’s purpose is to provide a place in the entry to put on or take off your shoes. We have an antique buffet that is made of mahogany as well and this piece harmonizes quite well with it. I like the combination of the polished wood with the textural quality of ...

My workshop is in shambles.

02-29-2012 11:42 PM by RussellAP | 5 comments »

Today I woke up, drank some coffee and headed off to rent a pickup truck to do some hauling. They didn’t have a pick up so the gave me a diesel behemoth. I had to take some bathroom stuff back to Lowes for store credit. I am upgrading the vanity and fan to something more fancy for my up coming upstairs bathroom remodel. While I was at Lowes with a truck, I got more bricks for my wall project and 3 sheets of 3/8 plywood for my shop shelving. 2 sheets of 5/8 plywood for my router table...

Christmas Turning Blanks

01-01-2012 05:03 AM by MOJOE | 2 comments »

Today our family went to visit my folks for a late Christmas. My brother-in-law, who runs a mobile saw mill, brought me a couple turning blanks fresh from his farm. The smaller (about 12×12) is elm, and the larger is red oak. He knew I’ve been thinking about buying a lathe, so now I have a good reason to make the purchase…..two fresh blanks, and a nearby supply of cut-offs!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #495: Even Brighter Days Ahead

10-18-2011 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, I got back on track and actually accomplished a lot of small things yesterday (and some larger things, too!) Overall it wasn’t a bad day at all and I even had the time for a short nap with the three kitties in the middle of the afternoon. I don’t do that often, but I find that taking an hour out when I am tired really does wonders because it refuels me and I last much later than I would have and I am far more alert. I feel better too and I am starting to believe that a ca...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #480: Monday Madness

10-03-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am typing fast, as I am running out early this morning. There is lots to do on this busy Monday and I want to get an early start. One of the things that is on the list is to contact the place where I purchased the magnets sheets from and see what different types of materials they have to offer. Even though I like these thin sheets, I would almost like something that is just a little thicker with slightly more holding power. As I indicated on yesterdays’ blog, these are pretty m...

I needed to do something to try and work my way out of the funk I was in..I was in a dark and scary place for a while..I did what every red blooded wood worker would do.. I made something.. Yes sir, I made a nice Coffin plane.. took me a few days to complete, gave me some much needed tool time, time for reflection, and direction, and sanding..and more sanding… quiet time, and sanding.. Through all this time of dust and dispare, I came to realize that most of what was bothering me was be...
