Why vintage? Why new? Why a special brand? DEBATE.

01-15-2011 03:22 PM by mafe | 30 comments »

Changed the headline, now we are awake! I’m entering a minefield, only politics can be more dangerous than this…I’ll put up some statements and want to see the reactions, to hear outburst, anger, agreements, and disagreements, but please try and argue why you think as you do! Why do I find this interesting? Because it’s discussions I see again and again on the web and here at LJ, and even find myself getting caught up in from time to time, partly because Napoleon and I have ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #226: "The Project" Part 3 - Are We There Yet?

01-15-2011 03:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It seems like things haven’t been normal here for weeks, even though it has only been three days. It hasn’t been bad at all though, and now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, it is very exciting. Phase one – building the units – is almost complete. I only have to finish the front of the doors and then we can install them. We needed to let the paint dry overnight and then we just need a coat of varnish on them and they are ready to go. They are...

my attempt at a Maloof style rocker

01-15-2011 07:14 AM by Paul | 27 comments »

We all love this rocker and so I though I’d have a go at one.My wife and I have a house with a nice size porch and so we went out and bought these cute to be assembled rocking chairs to sit on out there. They are the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat on in my life. After 15 minutes in them I have to get up and move around to get the blood moving again. They look nice from the street and accent the front of the house but that’s about it. With the shop calendar clear, I have...

Those Disgruntled Lazy Elves

01-15-2011 06:13 AM by Shawn Sealer | 5 comments »

Well, this year’s holiday season was a productive one in my shop. I made lots of presents, baby blocks for my twin 1 and 1/2 year old nephews, a bunch of cutting boards, and a couple of other projects that I won’t mention because they’re not done yet. Yep, that’s right it’s well into January and I am still not done making Christmas gifts. I tried blaming it on the elves but that didn’t work. So I tried doing something unusual I told them the truth. I tried to get them all done on...

Shop Tool Cabinet #2: Construction Begins!

01-15-2011 05:41 AM by Orion Woods | 4 comments »

So Thursday morning I finished up with a last coat of paint on the chairs and headed off to get my supplies. I had planned on Birch or Pine but was leaning towards pine as it’s $7 a sheet cheaper and on a budget project like mine every dollar counts! When I got to the store I had changed position and figured I’d use the Birch as I had some left over from another project that I could use for drawers etc. Well there was sadly only one piece of it on the shelf so I resigned myself to...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #8: Put a lid on it

01-15-2011 04:05 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

I had to purchase additional wood for the top because after 8 months in my garage the construction pine I purchased was warped too badly to use. So I got it all planed and jointed and then I decided I needed more practice with tongue and groove joints so I cut them on the table saw for the long edges as well as the breadboard ends. They were the best ones yet! I have a tough time getting the tongues the right length so there is no gap so this time I left the tongues a hair longer and used ...
