Ronin Woodworking #7: The Sawdust Chronicles Build Challenge 2010

09-07-2010 07:03 PM by spaids | 1 comment »

I entered a project in Ricks contest which was fun and personally challenging. I am going to take a shot at Ricks third contest ending this October. The entry deadline has not yet passed so anyone interested should check it out. I have a project idea that has been on my mind for a long time and with so little shop time I decided that this will be my 2010 build challenge entry. This is not the final sketchup that I’m going to build but it is very close. You can’t see very well in this dr...

Work(shop) in Progress #13: Reorganizing Single Car Garage IV - Getting in Shape(r)

09-07-2010 05:04 PM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I mean literally – I got the shaper to work :). I guess that would constitute as a tool gloat, although I’m not much of a gloater, I just like getting things done. I got this shaper off of CL a couple of weeks ago just because it was too good of a deal to pass up. I contacted the seller, and told them my budget which was lower than their posted price, and they agreed to my offer – I was psyched! I’ll probably set it up with some 3/4 bore cutters for cope-stile at some ...

Restoration and tip

This is a restoration project it was painted white new and I notice by looking under the chairs that it was hard maple painted at the factory white so I took it all apart I had just a big pill of wood , used some remover and a lot of sanding than I glued everything back together and varnish everything by hand , I am telling you it was a big job I would not do it again I would build one instead, I made the mistake of not taking a photo when it was all apart.It was easy to take apart as at the ...

A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK. And thinking about some of the other coments I have desided to offer the pland for the child chair. It is a very well built rocker, and balanced, and with the curved seat I have sat babys that can’t walk yet and they don’t slide out of the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #96: New Observation About My DeWalt Saw - Something to Think About

09-07-2010 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are times when I really feel guilty because I like my job so much. Not really too guilty, but sort of. I guess a better way to put it is that I feel bad for the people who really don’t like their own jobs. Maybe that is why I fight so hard to keep my business going and put so many hours in. The alternative seems very unpleasant to me. Although I have done many other jobs in the past, and I know if it comes down to it I will do what I have to in order to survive, I hope that I ...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #2: Project Done

09-07-2010 06:22 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

Well the Roll Top Secretary Desk is now finished. It’s been many months in the making. What’s really amazing is that I didn’t really have any “Oh No, what have I done!” moments with this project. Everything just went together well and did what it was supposed to do. I wish all my projects went like that. Some of the real turning points of the project were: I was buying the canvas for the tambour, wondering if...
