My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #194: Project Progress and Thinking Back

12-14-2010 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

So much for a winter wonderland. Yesterday it rained and rained and RAINED! Needless to say, all the snow is long gone and what is left is a wet and muddy mess. Last night it was quite windy, but it seems that the wind has died down quite a bit and it is much calmer today. But looking in the forecast (which I don’t really hang my hat on) it is supposed to be above freezing at least for the next several days. So it will be quite messy. YUCK! I know there are many people who don...

The solid pine lids for the two boxes is complete and ready for finishing. Two boards were matched for grain and rub glued together with titebond III. The pieces then cut to size with the circ saw and guide. The edges were than rabbetted first using the LN rabbet block plane and a offcut as a guide and then the LV plow plane. (The reason for this was the plow plane which lacks a knicker caused significant tear out when used across the grain, the plow plane was used to finished due to a fa...

Building My Work Shop #8: Belsaw Molder Planer or Another Craigslist Bargain

12-14-2010 09:51 AM by Crushgroovin | 8 comments »

As some of you may know I like to browse craigslist from time to time. Mostly in the morning during the two or three hours it takes to get my body to the point where I can walk without too much pain. Well while browsing for Planers I happened upon a 5 HP single phase Belsaw Molder Planer. The add said it was in working condition but needed some work, the guy was moving shops and didn’t want to move it so it could be had for $300. Now that got me curious about what kind of work it needed...

Jayne's Rowboat Rocker #1: Gotta Start Someplace

12-14-2010 05:04 AM by captkerk | 2 comments »

This will probably be a pretty short blog, but wanted to share some progress of the next rocker I’m building. This one is for child #4, Jayne. It became tradition for each of my kids to get a rocker on their second Christmas and after plenty of thought about what to build, I finally decided on the boat. I have never built a boat so I hope the more nautically inclined folks out there cut me a little slack about my construction methods (or suggest a better method!). I want it to loo...

Machinist Toolbox #4: Bad Weather, Kitchen Bender

12-14-2010 04:56 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

It was pouring outside, and so grey, but somehow the train kept on going. I somewhat planned for this in advance, and made sure I cut all the parts in advance so that I can continue working later on on the joinery in a more flexible manner, and flexible I mean literally as the kitchen counter flexed as I chiseled away. Then again, I was able to get some progress done while being with the family and not isolated in the garage. My daughter sat next to me watching me carve the sockets out with i...

12-14-2010 04:18 AM by a1Jim | 21 comments »

Charles Neil mahogany lowboy build-along, #18On a planet far, far away, long, long ago this A-1 guy was building a lowboy. He was given the wood and blow-by-blow instruction how to build it and was reporting to the land of LJ about how it was going. Then this invader, called LIFE stopped the whole process and only after a long battle, did the A-1 guy get back to the castle to continue the lowboy adventure.Now that my sanity has (briefly) returned… LOL, I’ll get on with the show, since a numb...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

12-14-2010 02:30 AM by chrisstef | 3 comments »

I know that its been a while but ive been busy working aorund the house and working on a coffee table for my father for Christmas but here is the latest installment of “The Slippery Slope”. I started this blog with the anticipation of chronicalling my slide down the slope toward becoming a Galoot, or at least a wannabe Galoot, but it has taken kind of a funny turn. Yesterday my grandmother unfortunately passed away after 88 years on this Earth. She’s found her way upsta...
