An introduction to me....

696 days ago by WoodGoddess | 4 comments »

I fell in love with wood when my husband and I bought our first home. I gained a healthy respect for it after installing my own hardwood floors. The event not only changed my work ethic…lol…but my understanding of just how wonderful wood is. It’s a delicate balance in nature. When I think of wood…I think of how it breathes, lives, and thrives…hence my fascination with it. The thing that I learned early on in my new fascination with wood…was its moisture conten...

the humble house workshop #5: LOVIN' IT!!

1931 days ago by kiwi1969 | 5 comments »

Sorry for the dim pic, got a late start to the next project today and just ran out of light. Thats the downside of an open air shop, but I just didn,t realise how dark it was until I couldn,t see my gauge lines! I really just got into a groove with the plane and simply didn,t want to stop. Can,t remember ever feeling that way when I was useing a jointer. Maybe I should of called this post “Pumping iron”. Tommorow, Mortise and tenons cut by hand. Lovin it!!

Pallet Craft #7: Rainy day, perfect for brainstorming!

773 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

See this and more at my blog: Pallet Craft Hello All, Well today was kind of a bummer, a rain day interupted my plans to wood work, but my wife suggested a project that she would like me to do… a mobile for our daughter’s crib. “BRILLIANT!” I thought to myself as I grabbed a pen and some paper and proceeded to sketch my design shown below. Mobile Design Sketchup This design is pretty simple, the neck of the mobile will extend out over the crib and will be s...

Stanley plane cleanup #1: Getting down to business

169 days ago by BJODay | 6 comments »

A year ago I cleaned up my two planes. One was a Stanley block plane. The other was an Ace Hardrware knock-off that I had purchased a few years ago. They cleaned up well and are usable planes. After reading information here and on other sites I decided I should really try to find a used Stanley #5. The knock-off was similar to a #4. I thought this would be enough to equip my shop for my needs. I started cruising CL and Ebay. My wife began wondering why I had a desire to walk through ant...

My First Indoor Project

1904 days ago by ralmand | 10 comments »

This is my 1st attempt at building an indoor piece. I wanted a wall table for my office. It is made of red oak. I purchased some red oak on craiglist for $40.00. Most of it was only 3-5 inches wide with mitre cuts on one side. I cut off the mitres and used my table saw and planer to square the pieces up. I glued up pieces for the majority of the project. I tapered the legs on 4 sides using my table saw, with the Incra Miter 1000SE, which helped a lot! The legs are 1 3/4” at the top and ...

Shop Organisation #2: Leftover Wooden Creates

20 days ago by woodoogolem | 3 comments »

At least here in Germany stores are often offering leftover packaging material to their customers to package their goods. Often there are wooden creates which were used to transport fruits or vegetables. The bads ones I store for the winter for burning, the good ones make fine storage boxes: I use them to group material for the projects I am working on or keep all parts belonging to a jig. When the creates have similar sizes they allow easy stacking:

Brainstorming Stage

1910 days ago by James | 4 comments »

So I have all of this old barn siding. The barn in my estimate was 100+ years old (Wish i would have taken a picture of it). I managed to pull some of the more useable planks off of it, and here’s what I have: The box is made from this wood and stained with watco danish oil and 1 coat of poly. I would like to make something rustic out of it, as it has lots of wear. There are bug tracks, nail holes, stains, and imperfections in all the boards. They are pretty warped...
