Foot rail for the bar...... #3: Installation.

12-30-2010 05:45 AM by degoose | 11 comments »

Finally got around to fitting the bar rail for my good mate John’s bar… After screwing the brackets onto the bar posts the length of Tasmanian Oak Dowel was threaded through the holes and smaller dowels were used to secure the rod..Here is a shot of me using a small pink rose covered hammer to drive the smaller dowels in.. And a shot of me with the hammer…As you can see still have to plug the counter bored holes…Nearly time to christen the bar rails… Hav...

DragonFly Harp #2: Progress in Design

12-30-2010 05:27 AM by Donna Menke | 2 comments »

12-29-2010Worked most of the afternoon on the harp mock-up in builder’s insulation foam board. We have a lot of this material left over from when we built the house over 25 years ago. It is 1” thick so it will work out well. I have made projects with and without mock-ups and those with the model always work out better. I even made one of this house before building it!Here the plans have been transferred to the board and I’ve discovered that some of the stresses on the pillar...

Flag Box For A Veteran I Never Knew #1: The Beginning...

12-30-2010 05:14 AM by grub32 | 1 comment »

Long story behind this entry. My Grandfather was veteran of WWII…He and 4 of his brothers. So he and his brothers equal 5 total. He left high school early to go and be with his brothers in the war. Miraculously, he and his brothers all made it back with just minor injuries. He was a very active veteran. He left this world 5 years ago from cancer. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to make a box and display for his burial flag and all his medals until now. This one is not the one I...

Beads Box #5: Hi, how have you been?!? It's been a while...

12-30-2010 04:12 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Yes it has been a while – and much of it… too much. Since I’m in the zone these past couple of weeks, and a bit more in the woodshop mind set, and add to that the fact that I’ve been working with mahogany and had some leftover boards I was able to finally (yay – after some years) mill the last missing parts for this box. I was able to cut the parts for the doors and cut the joinery for the reminder of the parts (internal parts and bottom on the external pie...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #4: Dying, Part 1: I don't believe what just happened!

12-30-2010 03:15 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

This is a “special segment” that I just had to post because I had an amazing emotional roller coaster day in the shop today. After spending my life in woodworking I had something happen in front of my eyes today that I’m still not sure I believe. My task for the day was to have been dying the leaf segments and top pentagon parts and getting the center segment glued up so that tomorrow I could accurately align the other segments to it and get them glued up also.Things were pr...

Jewlery Amoire #7: Drawer Assembly - Part 1

12-30-2010 02:41 AM by Zuki | 1 comment »

How is it that something so simple can cause so much grief? I had it all worked out in my head and everything was going fine until I made one stupid mistake . . . actually I made the same mistake 16 times. I was not happy when I discovered what I did . . . actually DW saw it first and I’m glad she did as I would have had to do a whole lot of deconstruction to fix the errors if she was not there to pick up on it. Watch the video. Its all fine now. :-)

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #1: Intro and first step of cleaning & rust removal

12-29-2010 11:51 PM by Dan | 10 comments »

There are many good blogs, articles and web pages out there that give you all you need to know about restoring old hand planes. Most of what I learned I got from other peoples advice. Even though there are many resources out there for restoring planes I found myself learning new tips and tricks from each and every one of them. I decided to do a series of blogs on my methods for restoring planes. Most of what I discuss you may all ready know from reading other blogs and sites but hopefully I c...

My Journey Into Woodworking #9: Some times it can't be helped

12-29-2010 11:21 PM by Steve | 1 comment »

I haven’t posted in a while. We’ve been putting on a small addition. All windows pretty much and it will be where I do my finishing so there will be good ventilation. Unfortunately to do the electrical work I had to trash my shop. Now I’m not exagerating, I mean trashed! In the end there was an 18” path through it and a messy one at that. Some times it can’t be helped. The only good side is it gave me a good reason to finally do the revamp of the shop layo...
