Begining the craft #2: Community

1958 days ago by Ken Wright | 0 comments »

I appreciate the replys to my blog and intro. It’s a pleasure to hear from ya’ll and take in your advice, which I will certainly use. I’ll be working on my LJ page here and plan to have my workshop uploaded this weekend. I am a former active duty Marine and now follow my wife who is still on active duty in the Army. That means that my shop has to stay lean and mobile since I move it every 3 years and right now it is located in our 12 by 20 garage here at Fort Stewart. ...

I was just reading the ingredient label on a box of Tylenol. I noticed it contains carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, shellac, and powdered cellulose not to mention some starch and aluminum lake blue coloring and glycol. That got me to thinking (yeah, I know my thinking is questionable) but powdered cellulose is wood fiber, i.e. saw dust. A little shellac mixed with sawdust, some wax and glycol… the titanium dioxide is the pigment for white paint and the aluminum lake is a nice shade ...

Tilt Top Table

1958 days ago by TheTwitch | 1 comment »

The first time I saw this site a man named Joel Tille was working on a Wiconsin Furniture Tilt Top Table. The article said it didn’t sell at auction. I was wondering why? And, was there a minimum bid that was not met. I am curious because I have one of these tables. I also have the six chairs, ten leaves, and a matching buffet. My aunt bought the dinning room set for my grandmother in the early ‘50’s. It is the only table I remember sitting at when we went to grand...

Tansu-shmansu #1: Birthday or xmas gift

1958 days ago by Pankratio | 9 comments »

So I’ve decided I’m building a tansu-styled cabinet (specifically the step or kaidan tansu style) for my lovely lady. I’ll be documenting the entire process on here until it’s done. Once it’s done, the nearest xmas or her birthday (march 8th) will become the ‘occasion’ for this gift. I like that deadline.

Entertainment Center #7: Finished (well almost)

1958 days ago by DocK16 | 10 comments »

This is the last blog on my Media Center Project as taken from Woodsmith Magazine late last year (with a few changes) I’m still waiting on some back ordered hinges from Rockler. I wanted to get this into the house for the Super Bowl but I guess March Madness will do. Wifey not too hot on the spalted panels, but she may have to live with them. Final version turned out to be quite massive having to add to height and width to accomodate larger TV than original Woodsmith plans. Bring o...

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #1: In the Beginning

1958 days ago by Matt | 2 comments »

In the beginning, there was a workshop. It was very cold. Especially in the winter. It was also messy. The owner had not mounted anything permanently, on the walls, because he hoped that, some day, he would be able to add insulation and wall covering and provide a place for the efficient warming of this desolate space. Ok, enough of that. In case you didn’t read the title or deduce from my workshop page that I’m talking about my shop, it’s me. Honestly, I had p...

Threat to American Walnut Trees

This recently recognized problem has already devastated black walnut trees west of the Rocky Mountains over the past 10-15 years. The disease is caused by a newly discovered fungus that is carried to trees by the walnut twig beetle...

Complete Shop Remodel #4: Final Steps

1958 days ago by jackd942 | 2 comments »

I can hardly believe it…the end is near. I have begun painting the inside of the shop and after much hassle (OSB and paint do not work well together) I am just about to finish this project up. The first paint I applied looked good the evening I applied it, but when I went back out to the shop the next day to admire it, you could hardly tell it had been painted at all! There was just a light chalky film in the area I had painted. So back to the drawing board. After a little research, I w...

Which one would you choose?

1958 days ago by turkva | 6 comments »

Hey all you LumberJocks out there. I am getting to ready to start a new project, which would you prefer to read about? A flag display case and shadow box, or an Arts and Crafts end table. Both will be made from a couple of oak trees a friend of mine had taken down about two years ago. I just moved into a new shop, and in the process of moving all of that lumber, I figured it was finally time to put it to good use. It has air dried is down to around 8%. It has been in my new shop for over a m...
