Woodworking For Therapy #11: No Saw Dust This Week, But..........

01-31-2014 01:50 AM by Steve Kreins | 8 comments »

Physically this has been a rough week. My Oral Chemo Medicine (which I prefer to call my poison) has kicked my pew warmer pretty hard. Or as we say in Texas, it put a can of whoop butt on me. Actually more like a 55 gallon drum than a can, but…............. like the Apostle Paul said, “I’ve learned to be content in whatever state I find myself in.” Of course Paul had never been to California, but that’s another story. I may not have made any saw dust but woodw...

Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! #10: Pending arrival ... a 100 year old manzanita trunk!

01-15-2014 11:29 PM by Eric M. Saperstein | 2 comments »

On the right (left trunk shown for scale) is a 100 year old manzanita trunk. These are cut for fire breaks, road maintenance, and other projects so don’t freak out that we killed a 100 year old tree just for us! The trunk is on it’s way from CA and should arrive late this week. We plan to make more manzanita slab bowls from this piece – and perhaps some other artistic turnings. We’ll be offering these pieces once they are completed and properly dried in our 2014 iss...

Morris Chairs #7: Standing frames

10-06-2009 03:29 AM by Dave T | 3 comments »

I’ve been slack in documenting my progress. Sorry to all of those following this. But after much drudgery cutting the side slats and the related tenons 68 in all and some assembly difficulties we have standing frames. I’ll get some pictures of the frames and latest progress tomorrow. Tonight I started milling up my last oak boards for the arms and the back.

2008 LJ challenge project finally completed

02-01-2008 03:15 AM by bryano | 15 comments »

At last my breadbox is done. the project was entered in both catigories. It is made from one 8’ cherry 2×4. the sides are 3/8s thick, the bottom, top, and back are 1/4 inch thick. the bottom to the knife storage is also 1/4 inch thick. the tambour door is 21 slats 5/8s wide by 3/16 thick with a 30 degree bevel on both edges of each slat. I wanted to use cloth to hold the slats together but figured it was clasified as another building material. instead I used 40 small hinges and a ...

Rustic Ramblings

11-18-2006 09:55 PM by dennis mitchell | 3 comments »

I was wasting time in a local bookstore a few years back and came across a book called “Rustic Artistry For The Home” by Ralph Kylloe. I picked it up and Wow! That was the quality and artistry I wanted to achieve. Today I’m getting closer but it has taken me away from traditional cabinetry. I’ve had people tell me rustic is easy because you don’t have to worry about straight and square…don’t listen to sales people! Rustic furniture offers all the ch...

These things with rings of things......

05-31-2009 04:25 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

These things with rings of things seemingly align, attempting to become a single form. Sometimes these things with rings of things look lost. Look as if they are missing an important aspect of what they are. Maybe a line. Maybe a missing ring. Maybe, just maybe, they aren’t meant to be things with rings of things at all. The mind is a very unique thing. Sometimes accepting, sometimes very rejectful. My mind at this point seems rejectful, but at the same time accepting. I somewh...

The love of Tools #1: The love of Tools

08-11-2012 05:02 PM by rilanda | 2 comments »

In praise of the humble tool.Mankind’s ability to create tools is the distinguishing factor that sets man apart from the other animals. Tools are the first idiom of human inventiveness; they have a special place in human development. Without tools human evolution and development would not have taken place; tools have been the principal means for the construction of all antiquities. The great buildings, the paintings, the furniture, indeed everything that has ever existed are there because of ...

Bookcase challenge

04-20-2008 10:10 PM by Ingemar | 4 comments »

When I first read about this challenge I thought it would be a good reason to finally try to learn SketchUp. I find bookcases as boring as anything as a design study. A quick look at one of my favorite design sites revealed that at there where no bookcases at all. Not even a small one. It isn’t difficult to understand why. A bookcase is nothing but a collection of shelves connected by some kind of structure. Plain or ornate. The more ornate, the less efficient i...
