My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #134: Good Way To Start the Day

10-15-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is only a little after 6:30 and I already scored a major victory! What a wonderful day it is going to be! OK – so it may not be major to everyone else, but it certainly is to me. Many of you may remember that I am in the process of changing over to new software on my site. This is an enormous and complicated task, as I have over 300+ products right now and the list is growing every day. Getting things in the proper order and presenting them in an organized way is no small task....

Shoe Carving Challenge #8: Hung Up

10-15-2010 11:55 AM by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

Oct 15/10 Well, I’ve finally hit the wall … the carving process has been going really well and the personal struggle to push through fears has also been relatively easy and successful… but this week I hit the big barrier, challenge, self-awareness, or whatever you want to call it. It’s been a few days now since Jordan posted the blog on carving the laces and right away I could feel the wall forming. I put off taking the next step.. and I put it off some more.. bu...

Well well, 10 actual instructional blogs and 85 pictures later and you have reached the end of the major carving of your shoe! Well done!!!!!The final blog will be tips on texturing and painting/staining. The holeAlthough this is not hard, it can be tedious, especially at the heel and towards the tongue where you’re at the end grains. 1. Before I start, I remeasure my sides and top inside and out just to make sure I remove all of my boo-boo wood. 2. You can make it easy...

Very litttle Dresser #1: Plans, history and glue-up

10-15-2010 03:43 AM by toolferone | 2 comments »

This really started about 12 years ago when I walked into a furniture refinishers shop and saw the neat little dresser. I asked if I might take dimensions and a few pictures. I then lost the plans and photos. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and I was very pleased to find them. I don’t know what I am going to do with it after I make it but I am going to build it as an exercise in new woodworking techniques to me. There will be sliding dovetails (machine cut). There will be both thr...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #32: Flattening a log..

10-15-2010 02:15 AM by degoose | 13 comments »

I got this dirty old piece of log… actually half a log… someone had split it down the middle … with both an axe and a chainsaw… fairly ugly and unstable… Using MDF cleats I pinned the log to the TWC and ran a surfacing head over it… flat and smooth… cross cut the ends and rotated and bookmatched for legs.. drilled some holes with a forstner bit for some tea candles… nice centrepiece for a table..More pics of the finished piece here..

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3

10-15-2010 01:44 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I cut the dados for the 2 middle panels. Then I dry fit the top bottom side and middle panels. Then I get the measurements for the door compartment shelves. I am cutting dados that are 1/4 in deep and 5/8 in wide. I am using a ryobi 5/8 in straight bit to cut the dados and it worked better than I though it would. In part 2 I had said that I was going to use the T square I built for trimming the panels down to...

The Slowest Farm Shop #7: Gift from a master...

10-14-2010 09:43 PM by Will Mego | 5 comments »

I was fortunate to get a visit today from Kyle Kinser, a student of Krenov and master woodworker (he’d probably not want me using that title, but I call it like I see it.) Who was in town and as usual, took pity on a semi-hapless amateur such as myself to give me something nobody knew I’ve been wanting forever…. a Stanley 60 1/2 low angle block plane! Wow! Obviously it needs a little work, but this really made my day! I’ve taken the legs off my giant spring pole ...
