Living on.

Wood working is a passion, it is a chance for one to express his/her self. When we are gone, it gives our family and friends something to last their lifetime as a memory of us.

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #12: Last class of Level 2 ...and probably for the rest of the year:-(

02-25-2011 07:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the course is over; I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. I suspect Ryan learned a lot about conducting a classroom and managing the administrative types at the College. I really enjoyed using all the tools and the great setup of their shop. Its given me a lot of ideas to incorporate into my shop, a bench, vise and mortising attachment for my drill press are all pretty high priorities now…just after getting the new tablesaw. I didn’t manage to finish my project yet but ...

Rush Seated Bench #2: My First Cloud Lift

02-25-2011 07:08 AM by woodworksbyjohn | 1 comment »

If you’re familiar with Arts & Craft style, especially Greene & Greene’s take on it you’ve no doubt heard of the “cloud lift” detail that was a common element of the style. It adds a certain Asian influence to the piece. For the rush seated bench I’m making I decided to incorporate it into the stretcher. Here’s my piece:As it is now this stretcher is way over size, the plan is to insert it into a through mortise on the leg stretchers. It w...

Workshop Development #17: Dust collection, and cat litter. Project in progress...

02-25-2011 07:00 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

So I have an old 40 pound cat litter container. You know the kind the litter comes in, hard plastic, looks sort of like a square 5 gallon bucket? Well it’s been sitting under my Strong Tie workbench, been there for years, just waiting for some great idea, or even dim witted idea to come to me and beg to be used… Well tonight, is partially that night… I have been fine tuning my router wing, and one area is is desperately lacking is in under table dust collection. Now HE...

Tool Restoration #1: Electrolytic Rust Removal

02-25-2011 04:56 AM by hambonez | 11 comments »

I first read about hand plane restoration here and I’ve been waiting to try my hand at it myself for some time. The link is very informative and was my blueprint for trying rust removal with electrolysis. What I did differently: I used a “wall wart” as my power supply. My battery charger is too smart and wouldn’t power the tank. I had an old plug to an old scanner that was in the toss pile as part of stage I off “Tiny Basement Shop Construction”, s...

Shoe Bench #1: Back to the drawing board

02-25-2011 04:45 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 0 comments »

This past week I’ve been building a small bench that will sit in the entry hallway of my house to sit one while putting on or taking off shoes. It also will house unworn shoes to keep them out of the entry way instead of scattered around like they are now. Unfortunatly, my first idea failed badly. I used 3/4’’ stiles to connect the legs with 1/4’’ plywood inside the styles much like a cabinet door. Here is what it was supposed to look like The problem was ...

My new hobby #1: Getting started

02-25-2011 09:34 AM by DanClem | 12 comments »

Good day to all who have chosen to turn a listening ear my way. I am a full time student and stay at home dad here in the great state of NC, who has found a new and exciting hobby in woodworking. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by what people could do with and to wood and now I’ve decided, with the blessing of the love of my life, to delve into the world of custom woodwork. To start this foray into the unknown, and grease the wife gears a little, my first project is goi...
