Hoarders on A&E (episode: Lori/ Jo)

09-14-2010 11:54 AM by ars | 11 comments »

For those of you not familiar with the show “Hoarders” (it’s like MTV cribs for people who suffer from compulsive hoarding/ the inability to throw things away), it’s a weekly show, each episode focuses on two different people, who with the assistance of a behavioral therapist (aka shrink), clean up crew, family and friends, attempt to clean their home and begin treatment for their disease. The reasons for these people being on the show vary from concerned relatives, f...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #8: Mortises and tenons - Making progress!!

09-14-2010 06:46 AM by sras | 8 comments »

Summer has flown by. I found a little time here and there to work on the stools. It never seemed like much, but when I look at the result I can see significant progress. I’ll show how I spent my summer (when I was in the shop). Preliminary Leg Shaping Several of the leg pieces shifted shape during the rough cut process. The final shape of the back legs requires some material removal. I decided to shape the side that removed material from the center of the leg. If the wood shifted ...

Red Oak Opportunity

09-14-2010 05:17 AM by KevinH | 2 comments »

I just posted my first project: a rather long-winded story about my 19 year old deck and recovering from storm damage. The rest of the story is that my 80 year old tree gave me a lumber opportunity. First, those big limbs were 16 inches in diameter where they joined the trunk. Several feet of each limb is now in the possession of a good friend who is a wood turner. Second, the trunk was 23 inches in diameter at the base and 18 inches at a height of about 45 feet. It was hauled away i...

Needing some prayers

09-14-2010 04:14 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 40 comments »

Everyone needs a miracle every now and then, and I need one now. My youngest daughter (2 years old) was diagnosed with vesicoureteral reflux this afternoon. It is by no means good, but can have 5 different stages. It is a disease which affects the kidneys. We will be going shortly to do more test to see how bad it is, but hopefully it is a lower stage so it can just be treated with medicine and then maybe she will grow out of it. Right now I don’t even want to think about it being a st...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #2: No Such Thing As a Lazy Mortise

09-14-2010 03:48 AM by Eric | 2 comments »

Since my last post, I’ve done some preparations for traveling, traveling, and recovering from traveling, so I haven’t had much shop time. Last night I had an hour or two. I had been considering building my double-screw Moxon vise for the Instructables woodworking contest. Nice prizes! But I figured I’d better stay focused and try to make more progress on the bench. Next step: mortising the legs for the short stretchers. In my last post I suggested that it’d be &...

WorkBench #5: Workbench (almost) done

09-14-2010 03:22 AM by grimt | 7 comments »

Well I have been tardy in updating my blog for my workbench. It’s been so long that my bench looks well used and even abused. It’s almost done: I still need to find and fit two drawer fronts. My idea is to make the drawer fronts out of 6 different woods. So far I have European Beech, Matai, Oak and Maple. I am very pleased with how the bench turned out, here are some pictures: It is rock solid, if I hadn’t inserted some drawers we would be using it as an ea...

it's that time again -i'm only assisting on this one-

-yeah, dig that crazy bentwood design my man has going! It blends better with the surrounding landscape! I was skeptical at first, but he now has it comfortably supported enough that i even got on the roof to apply some sawdust & woodglue filler to holes and cracks. -reclaimed and salvaged (or in this case, already naturally felled) materials, of course. -just 2 weeks left! We (mostly he) did get a lot closer to finishing before we left, but it got too dark to get a phone pic...
