Home Entertainment #1: For My Next Project

206 days ago by KelvinGrove | 0 comments »

Well, I have not been here in a while. Time to get back in the swing of things. I have decided that my next project will be a home entertainment center. Wish me luck! I have spent some time looking at pictures, watching videos, making sketches and laying things out in my head. And now it is time to start on the project. Next weekend (assuming there is no raging storm) I will get down to cutting lumber. The goal for the two days will be to get almost everything cut and the frames buil...

52 Weeks #27: What I like to make

1109 days ago by clieb91 | 0 comments »

What is your favorite thing to make in the shop and give to someone? After quickly making up the puzzles(see last week’s blog) for last weekend and playing with making a few more puzzles this week I have come to the conclusion that is what I really enjoy making. They are generally simple to make and with some more practice with the scrollsaw I can make a number of them at once by gang cutting. It was great fun watching my in-laws, nieces and nephews all playing with the game I brough...

Power Upgrade #14: More Wire-More Room

261 days ago by Nate Meadows | 14 comments »

Update- My beautiful wife has been moved to the ICU! I cannot adequately describe the feeling that resided within me, watching hordes of nurses scramble around my soul mate while all I could do was answer a few questions. One minute she was ok, the next she wasn’t. I don’t know what else to say! I think I am going to go mad sitting here waiting to hear any news, replaying those terrible images in my head! Another Update- I am sitting here in the ICU with her. She is hooked up t...

I called Karson;

1882 days ago by jockmike2 | 7 comments »

I called Karson today, he said he feels weak but that’s to be expected, considering. Of course he can’t raise his arms over his head, and his wife is keeping him in check, making sure he did’nt lift anything over 30lbs, he said she does’nt want him lifting anything. He said he is supervising building of a deck this weekend and letting the muscle in the family handle the heavy stuff. I made him promise to be a sidewalk superintendent. He agreed. His spirits seemed good ...

Random thoughts of wood #3: Final Bench Plane (for now LOL)!

1050 days ago by jace_robert | 4 comments »

So this morning my loveing wife informed me that the Stanley 607 came in the mail! This is the one that will need the most work out of the three bench planes I have purchaced. I am now looking at other things I need to develop my woodworking future an ideas? I am feeling drawn to studying up on chisels at this point as I am going to be working with hand tools for the most part I feel that chisels will be important in helping ensure good jointery and of course it will help my sharpening ski...

Crochet Box #3: Finished

1004 days ago by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I finished up the crochet box for my wife today and she seem’s to like it. The finish was several coats of oil/varnish and then wax on top. The inside I left untreated to preserve the wood smell when the box is open instead of the smell of linseed oil. I posted the project here

Finally, Some Shop Time!

2111 days ago by Eric | 9 comments »

Since we’ve moved to Kota Kinabalu, I’ve been sick almost the whole time. Nothing serious, but bad enough that I’ve had no desire to get in the shop when I’ve had free time. I’m finally starting to get well. And today, my wife (out of the blue) suggested I go get some shop time. Yes, ma’am! So today I finished unpacking my miscellaneous boxes that arrived by mail and by boat. My shop’s fairly organized, but a couple shelves will really help a lot. ...

Newbie Woodworker UK #1: I wish I had a table saw

857 days ago by jadboog | 5 comments »

Hi all, I’ve been reading the site for a while and thought I’d properly introduce myself with a poem I wrote today: Oh, I wish I had a table saw,My cheap-o tools just slip and gnaw.I spend my days finding lots of waysTo cut straight by hand which just delaysthat perfect cut that will amaze. Oh, I wish I had a table saw,That perfect line I’ve learned to drawevades the blades of all my saws.Mitres too go down the looThey just refuse to find the glue,Leaving yawning gaps for al...
