WoodChick #5: Lathe Projects = A Deeper Involvement in Pen Turning--Stabilization and Casting

07-21-2017 06:05 PM by sfhipchick | 0 comments »

Years ago when I was actively turning pens, I eventually turned about 25 of them. (I have most of them and plan to photograph them once our photo studio is in place) All of them are wood of many varieties from more plain wood to heavily burled and spalted. One is segmented, and I experimented with slightly different shapes but I really like a “normal” looking pen, so I only did a couple of unusual pen turnings. The kits I used were mostly slimline, which I happen to really like be...

A New Old Addition To The Shop

07-21-2017 01:50 PM by handsawgeek | 1 comment »

I have finally graduated from using my saw bench as a shop seat to introducing and using this wooden stool. But it’s not just any plain old stool – it has some history behind it. In downtown Colorado Springs, on South Tejon Street, is this really picturesque old building with the name ‘Hibbard & Co.’ on the front facade. The Hibbard Company was a dry goods store, opened in 1892. This building was constructed in 1924, and has become a historic landmark in the downtown area. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1846: Catching Up

07-20-2017 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I feel about writing again. It is funny how that works, isn't it?I didn't realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my absence. I very much appreciate being missed, and I promise I will do my best to try to post more regularly. It is just that sometimes getting back into a routine can be tough. I certainl...

Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #2: Tetris

07-20-2017 01:30 AM by Tony Ennis | 0 comments »

Not much to report this time. I’m trying to figure out a layout for the top 2 trays. The tray including pliers and chisels is pretty easy. This is because all pliers are about the same size, and so are the chisels I’ll be including in the box. So you can see that a few vertical dividers and we’re completely serviceable. This tray would be about 2” tall though if I spread the pliers out, or removed a pair, it could be 1.5”. So indeed it has become a gam...
