Google Sketchup: HELP!

07-26-2010 12:50 AM by Stevinmarin | 31 comments »

Okay, I’ve spent the whole weekend working on a design for an entertainment center, you know, rather than actually cutting wood. It sucks. At the urging of a lot of people, I have decided to start learning how to use Sketchup. So here’s my proposal: help! I’ve read countless postings about Sketchup. I have watched countless videos. I’m overwhelmed and confused. I’m a 2D guy caught in a 3D world. Please, someone: make it simple! If you like to write and woul...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #11: Making Progress

07-26-2010 12:25 AM by cmckerliesr | 7 comments »

Well I am making progress in general.I finally got a truck. Well what I call a truck. Not some over glorified car with a truck box on the back. I stand up and cheer every time the Toyota commercial comes on and he says he does not care if his truck is scratched, he is not going to baby it, etc. With all that in mind, here are pics of my $900 find. That of course is the interior which needs work. Of course the next few are of the outside. Here is the stuff that I feel is impo...

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #4: Out with the old, in with the,.. well,.. much older.

07-26-2010 12:05 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

After the final phase of glue up for the legs, putting the top on was a piece of cake. Clamp, countersink, screw, (so it can be adjusted if ever necessary)¬†and this puppy is ready for work. Well, it’s ready for it’s close up,... then work (or play) depending on your perspective. Goodbye workmate,¬†Hello, nurse! I left in that metal plate on the ends. For looks and added weight. Plus it makes a handy chisel holder! As you can see by the outsid...

Visit with another LJ member in Tulsa

07-25-2010 11:07 PM by Blayne | 1 comment »

I drove to Tulsa yesterday to pick up a few supplies and QSWO for my bedside table project. Supplies: success. Lumber: failure. One of the hardwood suppliers I visited was out of QSWO, and the other wanted almost twice as much per board foot than I was willing to pay. The best part of the day was having lunch with fellow LJ member, spamfilterman. He also showed me his projects and shop; he does nice work!

Building a cedar strip canoe #5: Stripping the canoe up to the bilge.

07-25-2010 10:39 PM by roaddog | 11 comments »

I started stripping the canoe a couple months ago but ran into a bit of frustration when putting in a walnut accent strip. The walnut machined a little differently than the cedar when I ran the strips over the router table to put the bead and cove edges on them. I had to walk away from the project for a while. I came back to it recently and after fiddling with the strips above the walnut strips it has been easy going since. It’s very satisfying to see the boat taking shape. A few...

Just wondering if any Jocks out there are planning on attending the Woodworking In America Conference in Cincinnati (actually across the river in Covington KY), Oct 1-3. It’s billed as The Ultimate Skill-Building Weekend. I have registered as there seems to a lot of interesting classes and vendors scheduled.
