Memorandum #2: A marathon, orders and Autism

01-16-2011 08:24 PM by nurvreck | 5 comments »

I’ve been more of a spectator here lately. Time for things to change. Here in Pensacola, weather hasn’t been too harsh to keep me out of the garage. I’ve been more focused on making upgrades and shop furniture than actual projects. Just recently we got back from a family vacation to Disney World. The vacation was actually multipurpose. It was our first real family vacation, and my wife and I completed our first marathon. Both were great. My oldest son is 4 and a perfect a...

LJ friends and gifts. #4: LJ meeting in Luxemburg parc, Paris - Copenhagen.

01-16-2011 07:53 PM by mafe | 23 comments »

LJ meeting in Luxemburg parc, Paris – Copenhagen.The great Sodabowski meets MaFe the vintage architect Yes it sounds like a funny movie, but at the end of the day, it was a warm meeting amongst two fellow Lumber Jocks. I travel to Paris app. once a month to spend time with my fiancĂ©e Caroline, and it showed out Sodabowski lives just around the corner from Caroline there…So after Sodabowski and I have had some conversations on Lj, we agree that it would be fine to meet and sa...

Why everyone needs at least one Shopsmith & other ramblings #2: (actually reason #1) The dedicated extra tool

01-16-2011 07:14 PM by Shopsmithtom | 17 comments »

I thought it would be easy to find the time to knock out a blog piece every now & then, but I was mistaken. Maybe if I were a faster typist…then again, maybe not. Life (in this case, the holidays & re-building a couple of Shopsmiths…that’s sort of a holiday for me, too) just got in the way. But, Here goes. I’ve been going through in my head exactly how I should approach this, and since it’s been an ever-changing thing, I’m going to keep the form...

Cigar Box Guitar #3: Finished up

01-16-2011 06:25 PM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I finished up my CBG today and it is already going out as a gift to my father in law. I finished the wood in oil/varnish followed by handrubbing and wax. I don’t have much of an ear for tuning it but I think it is close to G B G’. I didn’t amplfy it becasue he doesn’t own an amp but if he gets one I will add a pezo (sp?) to it. I have a very similar cigar box that I will use to build myself a guitar with soon and because the machine heads came in a set of six I...

Leonard Street Workshop #3: Planning (pt 1)

01-16-2011 05:05 PM by tyskkvinna | 30 comments »

Thought I would get some input from you all. As you may or may not know, my shop is a little different from most. It is not in my home or for my personal use – it is part of our open workspace where people can come and build “stuff”. We do a LOT with science/tech but that doesn’t mean more traditional ways of “making things” are left out.. I dearly love woodworking and we have a dedicated spot getting set up for it. Now, something that should be clear...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #227: "The Project" Completed :)

01-16-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I sit here basking in the glow of organization, the sun is just coming up and I noticed that another six inches or so of snow has fallen. Already it is going to be a great day. Things are just about finished here, with every cabinet and closet getting a makeover. I figured out that there are five closets in this little place, along with the large cupboards in the bathroom and now the new storage unit. That is lots of storage space to keep organized! It is funny how infectious clea...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #9: Almost Finished

01-16-2011 10:42 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

After the top dried I trimmed it to final length and width and set it on the chest. I can’t seem to get the camera set right to get a representative photo. It doesn’t really look right if I used a flash and turning the flash off doesn’t seem to help much. I need to practice more. I put 3 coats of wipe-on poly on the inside of the chest and on the bottom of the lid. I also cut and fit some cedar panels for the bottom. All that is left to do is paint the outs...
