Not quite in the workshop... #19: Lousy weather, a shop full of stuff, and holes in the yard...

07-08-2010 04:26 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Last week it was hurricane Alex that hit south of us and dumped a ton of rain on us all week, now it is closely followed by what is now being called “Tropical Depression #2” whatever that means… I know all it means for me is a ton more rain. I have the posts for the fence up, and set in cured concrete, except for the last two. The holes for those are bored, and I am praying that all this rain doesn’t back fill the holes. The ground has been FAR too wet to finish wit...

Ridgid TS3650 #1: Found It

07-08-2010 03:17 PM by Carreiro | 3 comments »

I’ve been in the market for a new table saw for a while, but I haven’tdone much about it. Life has pulled me in different directions andfinding the time to think about a table saw purchase has been far fromimportant. However, recently things have changed. With the birth of myfirst child I’ve been thinking about all the things that I would loveto build for him, so that spurred on my quest to upgrade from mySkillto something a little more stout. I’ve contemplated the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #35: Some Ornament Pictures

07-08-2010 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be quite a productive day. I cleared up all my correspondence and got all my cutting done and the pictures to the wholesaler and I even had a little time to paint in the evening. I even started to do some writing of the final packets I have to assemble, but I thought I would be fresher for something like that in the morning and opted with the painting. The ornaments were quite challenging but I was able to cut them without problems. They were stack-cut with one la...

My newest undertaking

07-08-2010 12:19 PM by BigTiny | 6 comments »

Well, here I am, making my first blog entry… I guess a good start would be to tell a bit about my latest undertaking in wood, sort of… I recently got a bargain I couldn’t pass up on a pair of large model aircraft kits. Since they’re balsa wood, I guess they fit here… The models are both of DeHaviland types, a Turbo Beaver with an 8 foot wingspread and an Otter that’s got a 6 foot span. They are very detailed, having been made from the original co...

Luthiery Fun #2: Rosette

07-08-2010 09:07 AM by Chinitorama | 3 comments »

The top was glued up as any other panel would be, only thinner at about 3mm. The material was a lucky find at a local lumberyard. Nicely quartered cedar is easy to find here in BC. Unless noted otherwise, Titebond 3 is the glue used. Rosettes in classical/flamenco guitars are most often mosaic and herringbone inlay. I love the look of traditional rosettes, but they are complex to make from scratch. Mass-produced rosettes can be purchased from most of the big luthier supply houses. As...

Post and Panel Construction System #2: Building Complicated Structures

07-08-2010 08:35 AM by Pete Tevonian | 5 comments »

The basic assembly process is simple: Slide a panel’s edge bead into a groove in a post—that’s it. Incidentally, this basic interaction is so intuitive that my 4 yr old took one look at a post and panel and immediately put them together. Within seconds, he had grabbed two more posts and panels and added them to the wall. Tall Walls and TowersHowever, to build a wall that is taller than a single post, there’s a very simple additional trick: Instead of using a tall ...

But it looked good when It was in: And then the drawers w...

Post and Panel Construction System #1: What Is It?

07-08-2010 08:02 AM by Pete Tevonian | 1 comment »

The Post and Panel System started with the desire to let my son build cool castles out of blocks. But I didn’t like that regular blocks fall down so easily. A little kid is going to have a hard time protecting his castle from barbarians, pets and siblings if the only things he can use are gravity and friction! So, unlike regular old blocks, the posts and panels in this set lock together. In minutes, without any instructions, your kids (or, be honest, you) can create complex and s...

four station desk #3: Finished pictures, was just delivered.

07-08-2010 06:23 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

Here you see my four station desk inside the medical clinic, where it now reduced. I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman. Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish.
