My husband and I did almost all the work in building the new shop but we did hire a group of men to pour and smooth the new floor. Here’s the pump truck starting the pour in the north east corner: Pouring in the north west corner: Close up: Finishing up: All done: And the pad for the wood stove to sit on: be continued…

Wall Display Case #3: Starting the doors

02-16-2010 06:45 AM by johnnymo | 0 comments »

Well, I got a chance to get into the shop today and was able to make the face frame for the case. I made it just a little proud of the case so I could go back and cut it flush using the router. I also added the shelf for a space for boxed cars below the shelf as well as on the shelf. One other thing I started was the rails and stiles for the doors. I cut these to size and added a rabbit for an 1/8” thick glass that will be inserted into the doors. Will probably head int...

Pensai Table #1: Motivation and Design

02-16-2010 05:50 AM by chscholz | 3 comments »

Like in any project I had hoped that I would have completed this long ago. But since I still feel I am at the very beginning with the project, why not document the process. Maybe someone can get some inspiration or, what is infact more likely, y’ll will have valuable suggestions on how to move this project forward. The idea is simple: SWMBO has become interested in Pensai (or Bonsai if you prefer the Japanese pronunciation). Any self-respecting pensai artist needs a pensai table, and...

Woodworking forums vary a great deal...

02-16-2010 05:28 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first. The forum suggested new members introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do. I did that, and some people said it was blatant advertising. I re-checked...

Extremely Average #45: I Suck

02-16-2010 04:54 AM by Ecocandle | 28 comments »

On April 24, 1990 the Hubble Space telescope was launched into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. The images they sent back were blurry. It was one of the darkest days in the space programs history. After polishing the primary mirror for a year they had screwed it up, worse than Billy Buckner in the sixth game of the 86’ World Series. The mirror was off by 1/50th the width of a single human hair. The holes, which I drilled in the legs for my router table, were off by more th...

Well, 1st off I need to show off my new toy. A Skil 9 inch band saw. Got it for 50 bucks.And in no particular order you will see that I am almost done with the 1st unit.

Next I will be making more shelves and gluing this one together. Then on to the next one. Thanks for lookin Rick

Drill Press Problem

02-16-2010 01:00 AM by richgreer | 8 comments »

I’m sure I am not the only one who has done this. I’m also sure someone can tell me the best way to fix this problem. On my floor standing drill press (Delta model 17-950L) I accidentally put too much downward pressure on the table without having the table secured to the column. As a consequence, the rack on the side of the column (which meshes with the crank mechanism to raise and lower the table) bowed out away from the column. Do I need to replace the rack? What ...

02-16-2010 12:36 AM by Dennis Zongker | 32 comments »

It’s about time! We finally got a good job with a lot of carving. It’s a three piece bedroom set. The style is close to the early Victorian Period. Their are 4 Scroll Acanthus leaf’s that I designed, two that go on the bed and two that go on the dresser. Now I am starting on the 8 turned legs with acanthus leaf carvings on them. All the carvings are out of solid cherry. Here are 33 pictures, on how to carve this type of “Architectural Ornament onlay application̶...
