Yin Yang #4: Putting the Yin with the Yang

01-28-2010 10:58 PM by MsDebbieP | 3 comments »

Jan 28/10 With the pieces prepared, the next step was to try and put them together into a square and get all the four corners to match. Yah… I had it once, moved the pieces and then couldn’t get it to work again. That was frustrating! I decided to glue one section onto the walnut and just go from there. Once the one piece was down it was easier for me to adjust the other three and eventually I got it close enough and glued and clamped them. With the project almost done, I...

Beall Polishing System #3: It does polish wood

01-04-2014 01:46 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I was talking about sanding mops and other things and only referenced that I’d polished things with it. On all these pieces my finishing regime is the same: 1. Sanded to 320 grit. I don’t have anything finer that I care to use on a piece that’s going to be polished, and I’ve found that 320 grit seems to be perfect for getting a smooth finish. (Side note: I’ve polished some unsanded surfaces. It doesn’t smooth them, but it will polish the high spots. )...

You Design It, I Build It project #4: And the winner is.....

08-13-2012 06:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

After a tough fight between the hall table and the bench, the hall table has won. At the beginning the bench took a quick lead, but then failed to hold it as the hall table easily passed it. Now it is on to the next stage, the actual design of it. I will be figuring out how I will do this and then post more about the next step. Thank you to all who participated so far and please keep on participating.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1359: The "Day Off" - Trying Again!

07-15-2014 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have to smile to myself when I think about yesterday.I do so because the way that the day turned out for me. It wasn't bad, mind you, but it was totally NOT what I intended it to be.I had worked so hard over the weekend on my "Nevermore" painting pattern. I had finished  painting the design sometime Saturday I think and I had committed myself to finishing up the pattern by Sunday. Normally, this would not be a huge or difficult task, but the pattern is headed for an ...

Time, Space, and Money

07-02-2013 09:06 PM by jaysuzi | 4 comments »

I think the 3 biggest factors that keep people out of the woodworking craft are time, space, and money. I am not talking about professionals, but those of us that want to do it for a hobby. These have held me back for a number of years, but I am hoping to address all of these and start getting into the craft. TIME:By far, the biggest factor for me over the past years have been time. There were just too many other thing taking priority. First there was work. I do not make a living with...
