Maybe the beginning of a larger project #28: Some progress

09-02-2013 04:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

This the mast step. When I fabricated the main part it looked pretty good, then I dry fitted it and realized the partner’s hole was about 5 mm out of line. The small piece there is to shim the step out the correct? distance. These are the pieces for the rudder mount. The pieces will be laminated at the forward edge allowing the rudder to be sandwiched between the outside pieces. There are no real clear plans on Shorty’s site on how to build a rudder so I am just going...

Journey Back to 1776 #1: Getting Started

04-04-2009 03:42 PM by woodchick | 6 comments »

Today I am going to start working on my design for my project in progress. I know that your probably wondering, so what is this project in progress, well have you ever wanted to go back in time and experience building something that a person, who will be famous in time, will use. Even make something that is used to write a document that gives each and every human being in the United States freedom. Well that is exactly what I am going to make, a replica of the lab top desk that our one and on...

Basement Step #2: More work and the final product

07-02-2008 12:21 AM by Zuki | 6 comments »

Today was another humid day . . . so out I went at the step. I started by putting a strip of ice shield along all the edges where there will be wood on wood. As my shop is in shambles I had to cut the decking half way out the side door. Arrg. Next was the test fit . . . And attach all the decking boards. The final steps were to add the skirting and cut a slight curve . . . and voila . . . done. This was the original step

Ramblings Loosely Related to Art History #5: A Wittgenstein Wochenendbeilage

10-23-2009 01:33 PM by naomi weiss | 7 comments »

There are loads more cool things about Wittgenstein. Since his family was minted, he chilled with so many of his generation’s elite—especially the artistic elite. I suppose one way of putting it would be that when you walk into the Neue Galerie on 5th Ave., you’re pretty much entering Wittgenstein’s world.For the better format of this post, click here. This painting by Klimt is of Wittgenstein’s sister, also known as Margaret Stonborough (1905). Wittgenstein&#...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #5: Just because the Tramadol says it doesn't hurt, doesn't make it so!

10-05-2010 06:10 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

Oh I was feeling sooo good yesterday. Nice and flexible, no pain, lots of energy, I must be all better right? So being me, I just sort of dove right back into it as it were, and finished up the fencing. Now this did NOT involve much in the way of lifting. The hardest thing I did was to roll the air compressor out to the back yard, and hook it up. The rest was picking up one picket at a time. On the positive side, all of the pickets are up, the latch is in place, the fence is done, and the ...

Reflections on technology and woodworking #2: Distraction

04-15-2007 10:47 AM by Douglas Bordner | 5 comments »

Well to recapitulate, I began reflecting on the journey to LJ, essentially with the installation of high speed internet after some 16 years on dial-up, the last ten of which my primary job description involved the daily use of computers for design work and administrative tasks. New vistas opened and I spent several days getting project photos together, posting to LJ and photo sharing sites. Together with this effort, and a fascination with The Woodwhisperer Podcast and other internet attra...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1437: Half Way There

11-04-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was a busy, yet positive day. Mondays are always busy because we have the trip to the post office, the bank, shopping and the gym. I like getting these things out of the way though and it puts me on a good track for the rest of the week. I was really anxious to get home though, as I couldn't wait to begin cutting out my new designs. Because of all the errands though, I didn't get started until mid afternoon. I decided to do the sleighs using maple for the sleigh be...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #3: Drawbore mortise and tenon

04-17-2015 01:43 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube
