Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #8: I Don't Need No Stinkin' Lathe

11-02-2010 04:24 PM by Eric | 6 comments »

So I followed Gye's advice and followed Kari's advice and whipped out my block plane to fashion me some pegs for drawboring the tenons on my stretchers. I originally was considering making a dowel plate, but Kari in her post suggests that this works best for short dowels. All of mine are at least 6” long. So anyway, the block plane was a bit slow at first, on the corners, but it quickly picked up. I just started at one end until it fit in my test hole and wherever it hung up, I k...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #152: Some Decisions are Difficult to Make

11-02-2010 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am at last seeing the finish line in painting the skating pond scene. As of today, I am on the last of the figure and then I only need to do the trees and lamp posts and I will be able to unveil the entire scene. I have thoroughly enjoyed recreating it, but there have been many distractions along the way and I am feeling that I can’t wait to get to the many other things that await my attention. The distractions haven’t been all bad, but some are certainly more productive tha...

Building My Work Shop #6: Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design

11-02-2010 07:25 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Got a very late start to the day so ended up taking up most of my time with the Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design. Tomorrow I will brave the rain to go out to the lumber pile outside and see how many 1×6’s I have out there. The design is basically to hold everything I might need for assembly: Clamps of all sorts, Glue, Tape, fasteners. I designed for use with Fir 1×3 & Birch Plywood, however any 1×3 and 3/4” & 5/8” sheet stock will work. I will be using M...

"Woodworking Tradition"

11-02-2010 07:02 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

“Whose boy are ya?” This may be more of a southern thing, but it was a common question for me when I was growing up in Alabama. My mother had 5 brothers and a sister plus 4 step-brothers and two sisters so proper identification was importantant, especially at family functions and other gatherings. Family has always been important to me, especially when I have traveled to so many places where I had no family. My grandfather was Paul Revere Pounders. I always thought that was...
