random #3: Anthropomorphic tools - My DeWALT sander is watching me

1877 days ago by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

I hadn’t noticed until now, but I think my little DeWALT ROS is a robot who’s been watching me now for more than a decade. At least he’s adorable, like a little puffer fish. I only hope his intentions are peaceful.

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #2: The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can (continues 2/27/2009)

1877 days ago by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Hi All!Well I know it has been some time since I last wrote about what is was like working inside the can. The temperature, space, so forth. So, I thought I should quit making excuses and sit down to give you all some more information. First, let me tell you that I have been doing a lot of work inside the can. I installed some recycled kitchen cabinets and set some 3/4 inch MDF on top of them, making an L-shaped work bench or surface that is 18 feet long and the L at the end measures 4 fee...

A Visit to Hardwood Components, Inc.

1877 days ago by David | 8 comments »

I recently stopped at Hardwood Components Inc., a local family run hardwood mill that specializes in native Oregon hardwood species. Stopping by this mill has been on my “to do list” for some time so I am glad I finally got a chance to poke around. I ended up purchasing a small load of Oregon wild cherry. This mill will be on my materials short list for future projects. There is something very satisfying about supporting a small local business and using native wood species. David The...

Military Flag Display #3: Drawer boxes completed

1877 days ago by Mike Morris | 1 comment »

Everyone warned me that LJ was addicting…but did I listen…nooo! What free time I did manage to get outside of surfing LJ, I finished up the drawer boxes: They are unfinished at this point…picture was taken right after the mineral spirits wipe down. I’m going to wait until the drawers are completed with the fronts and handles before applying the finish. I did opt to go with the 1/4” vs. 1/8” thickness for the bottom. I stayed with the solid ch...

Meeting Thos. Angle

1877 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

This morning I had the honor of meeting famed LumberJock member Thos. Angle and his lovely wife Carleen. They are just as genuinely nice in person as they are online. We did not have much time to visit this morning as they are just heading back to Oregon. They will have to make a couple of trips to complete their move to Wyoming. They will be about 2 hours away so I am sure that we will have more opportunities to get together. Everything within 2 hours is considered local in Big Sky Countr...

Concave Chest of Drawers #1: Getting Started

1877 days ago by Blake | 17 comments »

I started my next project based on an idea I got from a gorgeous piece of maple that I had laying around which I found when I cleaned out my shop recently. The board was an impulse buy several months ago. I didn’t have a use in mind for it when I bought it. It was 6’ long, almost 10” wide and a little over 1/2” thick. This is the design I came up with for a Concave Chest of Drawers: Some of the Features will change as I start building, especially on the struc...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #2: What to use?

1877 days ago by MyOldGarage | 5 comments »

Well, the weather forecast here is calling for snow this weekend. I’m anxious to have the garbage can holder done, but I want to keep right on going with projects. I’m contemplating loading up the truck tonight with some materials for the overhead cabinets—but I’m kind of wondering what I should build them out of. I’m leaning towards cheap and paintable—and light? I’m looking for some suggestions now so I can call around and get pricing informati...

Beads Box #1: Carcass Design (which saw to use to cut the box?)

1877 days ago by PurpLev | 6 comments »

My mom is doing some amazing bead work. one time when I went with her to the beads store, I saw a small box/cabinet that the store used to store (no pun intended) the beads in, and thought it would make for a great way for my my to have all her beads organized – and I can make it. After completing my handtool box (at least the general construction of if) it made me think that I can scale it down and use the same ‘general design idea’ for the beads box. plus some additions...

Wow, thanks for all the response on my last post! I love it when woodworkers get passionate and lets face it no one can show passion like a woodworker. I got a lot of great insite from you guys. I also wanted to qualify a few things. I love to draw!! Thats what sent me to art school in the first place. Life drawing is still one of my faverite pass times. The human body is one of the most intriguing forms to consider in all the world. I have taken drawing and painting classes since I was a k...
