Lid.while I wait for the willow tree! I had all of a sudden become in front of the timeline, have no idea how…So I had time to make a lid for the bucket.I had made an extra set of boards like the bottom, so these were the start point. This is what it became.A Japanese inspired lid, in one of my favorite colors, Japanese red. First I cut it in size, and made cut for the handle bars.Then a tour on the router, as you can see I made a primitive circle jig of a piece of plywood and ...

Router Table by Julie #3: starting the base

02-16-2011 07:59 PM by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

I’m designing my router table so that it fits with my router and accessories. My Hitachi router will hang upside down on the right hand side. It will need clearance around it for my access to raise and lower it and also for bit changes which I usually do by popping out the whole base and sitting the router on the top of the table. I also have a small laminate trimmer type router that I usually have attached to a large 12” x 18” plexi base. I use it mostly for routering...

Holly pattern, Chip Carving, add color? #1: Chip carved plate, add color?

02-16-2011 06:21 PM by MyChipCarving | 21 comments »

I’m wondering what you think about my adding some color to this chip carved plate. From the start I’d planned on adding a light, transparent, oil-based green color to the leaves and red to the berries.But now that I’ve gotten this far in the finishing process, I really like the way it looks and I’m chickening out when it comes to doing anything else to this chip carving.What do you think?

The Nightstands Build #6: Fixing some mistakes with Inlay - Part 1 of 2

02-16-2011 04:37 PM by Eric_S | 2 comments »

I’ve finally decided to get back to finishing the nightstands that have been going on for over a year now. They are very close to being finished. Once I finish this inlay hopefully by next week, all thats left is final sanding and then waiting for it to warm up a bit to apply my finish which in itself could take a while. Speaking of the finish, I’d like to take a second to thank Charles Neil for taking time to e-mail me a few times and help me out with finishing questions and s...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #2: Item One - Shop Space

02-16-2011 04:00 PM by billb | 5 comments »

Let’s start with item number one, what to use for shop space. Obviously, the best thing would be if you owned a shop space such as your garage or some other out building. This would certainly be less costly than renting even a small space. However, it may not be viable in a subdivision with deed restrictions, where you may not be able to conduct any business from your home. Or, it is possible that there are noise restrictions precluding the use of woodworking machines. Check all that ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #258: Keeping Things Organized

02-16-2011 02:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I got a large amount of work done yesterday, although it isn’t very exciting to write (or read) about. In preparation for my back up, I wanted to organize my computer and get everything where it belongs. I do this every month or so, but when I am really doing a lot of work it is very easy to have lots of files out of place. The biggest culprit is my “New Pictures” file. This is where I initially collect my reference photos for drawing. I usually use several photos at ...
