Columbus Woodworking Show--Part 2

01-21-2010 07:19 PM by naomi weiss | 11 comments »

The woodworking show was amazing! I will do a proper entry (hopefully soon) on my regular blog. I met Chuck Bender, my LJ Buddy, and it was phenomenal. You can read his take on the show (and our meeting) here. For now, here’s a video of us: My mother and brother came with me and have been bitten by the woodworking bug. Here is a video of my mum turning a pen:

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #2: the drawer carcass

01-21-2010 07:00 PM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

With my new rolling lathe stand rolling and standing well, it was time for some drawers. This was also a great opportunity to start using up some of that huge pile of free, scrap alder I got 6 months ago. I hadn’t used any prior to this, and while the smell of the lumber and dust when I picked it up brought me back to my childhood – they made me vividly recall toys and painting easels from my kindergarten – cutting it fresh smelled sweet, and reminded me a lot of something l...

Wood Art #5: Harald Huf's 1:6 scale, twin jet-powered, r/c Sukhoi Su-27 jet fighter

01-21-2010 01:58 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I can’t believe the amount of work some people can accomplish. This is an absolutely monumental build of a Sukhoi Su-27, aka “Flanker-B” that mostly uses wood for the mold making, but even that is pretty solid craftsmanship. I think the rest is interesting/impressive to anyone who makes, creates, or builds anything. I thought I was done clicking through pages of pictures at least a dozen times, but there were always more. He did all the wood and aluminum/hand hammered riv...

Upholstered Queen Bed Construction Process #2: Headboard and Footboard Frame Construction

01-21-2010 05:56 AM by Tango | 0 comments »

Today I made a big advance in the construction of the frames for the Headboard and the Footboard. My son’s help make the difference in speed!!We cut all the pieces to size and mounted it according my plan. CUTLIST was a huge help in calculating everything. To put the frames together I used Titebond II Glue and 1.25” long FastCap Screws I bought a long time ago and had no use for it until now. These screws are self tapping and did a wonderfull job holding all in place. So far the H...

Window shelving #2: Major screw up today

01-21-2010 05:05 AM by Rustic | 2 comments »

Well today was not a good day. I measured the spot for the 1st dado 3-4 times. Thought that I was dead on. When I went to check it I was at least 1 inch off. Then I realized that I di not take into consideration the bottom piece. The inside dimension is going to be 12 inches. I thought about modifying the design slightly, but that would compromise the whole thing. So tomorrow I am going to start again. I now know the dimensions needed. So now I will make the dado @ 9 inches. I still have 2 fr...

Krestova Project #2: The Maple Breakfast Bar

01-21-2010 04:55 AM by Maplenut | 5 comments »

This latest project has completely rocked my world. I’ve done the bottom piece of the bar…the the satisfying part being the woodworking piece. The finishing part is what makes me crazy. So many variables, and a whole lot of chemistry. I’ve made mistakes…big ones. The following series of phots are of the panels which will be pieced together into the pony wall of the breakfast bar. I had shellaced one of the panels three times as well as applied a coat of stain and...

Extremely Average #19: My Days as a Ninja

01-21-2010 04:20 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

It seemed like a long time ago. The year was 637 AD, and I was studying under the master Ninja and Carpenter, Sado Asuka. His philosophy was, ‘To master the blade of the Ninja, one must master the tools of the Carpenter’. He said this often. We built a Shinto shrine in his back yard and a rumpus room, for his kids. It was strange that he spoke English, but I digress. One day I was using the hand tools, as I was told, practicing my Miyajim-tsugi, or as the master said, in his best Eas...
