Ronin Woodworking #11: WHY? Why must I SUCK at this?

09-29-2010 05:29 PM by spaids | 3 comments »

ARRRGGG! Well I have come to the conclusion with the help of advice from the proprietors of the contest (The Sawdust Chronicles Build Challenge 2010) that my design requires a laminated top. I knew that movement would be a problem but I hoped there was a trick I was unfamiliar with. There is no trick. If I want a “framed” top on my little table I either leave room for movement and accept that or I laminate. And let the sucking begin. Uh… that sounded odd. Anyway. Fir...

Scouts Popcorn Fundraiser

09-29-2010 05:17 PM by Handi75 | 2 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, I know this is completely and totally off topic of woodworking of any form, although my Son Damian will be doing some woodworking to receive his Handyman Patch. But besides this, I’d like to share a Link to my Sons Popcorn Sales for his Fundraiser, I’m sure as you all know, or may not know, Popcorn is the ONLY Fundraiser the scouts do to provide money for their Troop. The money goes for Patches, Events, Outtings and helps other scouts that need money t...

My Journey #5: A bit of a diversion...

09-29-2010 04:58 PM by Trimble | 0 comments »

So, I just posted my entry about working on my daughter’s dollhouse. Well, about halfway through that, I was interrupted when my wife commissioned me to actually make something out of wood with a purpose. The conversation went something like this: Her: I need to stop at home depot and get some pvc pipe to make a thing for our son to store his swords. Me: ... um… Or, I could make a sword rack out of wood. Her: You’re still not giving up on this woodworking tangen...

My Journey #4: More on the dollhouse

09-29-2010 04:31 PM by Trimble | 3 comments »

Well, a few more days have gone by, do I thought I’d post another entry here. Last time, I mentioned the dollhouse kit that I need to build for my daughter. It’s a nice little kit, but it comes with some very thin plywood that tears out every so easily when punching it out of it’s frame… I’ve spent much time popping out the pieces and sanding the edges. My wife bought some paint in the colors that we determined my daughter likes, but we still haven’...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #118: Yesterday is Gone (Good!)

09-29-2010 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday was a day that I could have done without. It started out fine and everything was going according to plan until about 10am. I received an email from a customer saying that he couldn’t get to my website. The previous day, Steve Good (who hosts this wonderful scroll saw forum and site) had presented one of the patterns I had donated and informed his readers (which are over 5000 scroll sawyers) about the sale I was having until Oct 1st. I had also sent email notices to my now...

Clipboard #1: WHERE'S ME CLIPBOARD!

09-29-2010 01:13 PM by BritBoxmaker | 28 comments »

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before I do a fairly mundane day job, stacking shelves. One of the main tools for this is a clipboard, to hold my picklist. It invariably goes missing. Either I leave it in a trolley somewhere or, worse still, somebody ‘borrows’ it without asking. Hence the cry ‘Where’s me clipboard!’. The use of ‘me’ instead of ‘my’ is a dialect feature of East London and Estuary English which, along with commeritis,...

A status update...I guess the first

09-29-2010 08:42 AM by thewoodartist | 4 comments »

Well, I have to start somewhere, so I guess I’ll jump in the deep end and start swimming. The projects I’ve posted thus far are all completed things. If you’ve looked at them, you’ve probably concluded that I enjoy working in small scale. That’s true. It’s not exclusively true, but many of my pieces are “miniatures.” Shortly I’ll post some pieces that aren’t. I only have a couple of rules. First, I never make the same thin...

A Special Unicorn Project #2: Finally An Actual Start

09-29-2010 05:22 AM by William | 3 comments »

Well in the first installment of this series I talked a lot about my ideas for this project. Ideas were pretty much all there was to it though. Then for various reaasons I haven’t been able to get into my shop to do anything after that. Well, I finally got to actually start on this. First things first, I had to actually lay out some of my ideas on paper. So I pulled out the patterns for the general shape of the unicorn, which is to be based loosely on the carousel horse plans. Then I ha...

Salad Spoon Set

09-29-2010 05:09 AM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

These salad spoons and a little bonus spoon were carved from recycled wood ( rimu – dacrydium cupressinum). Below is a bit of history of how they used to be made and in particular how I made this one, considering that it was from recycled wood and not from a tree. Traditional spoon making Historically spoons were rived from a log and rough carved with an axe. Riving, or splitting wood was usually done with a froe and a mallet. A hatchet was used to shape and smooth the general...
