Stock selection & preparation, various musings and commentary, lots of pictures.

08-13-2009 11:20 PM by Derek Lyons | 0 comments »

Now, into the meat of the tutorial after the musings in part the first… Fellow LJ’s are invited to chime in with comments! (I’ll also be forwarding this outside of LJ, so please forgive the more obvious bits of explanation.) One of the reasons for the delay in getting the new cutting board going (on top of not being able to work in the shop) was just being too dang busy to get over the Seattle and find the wood. Two weekends ago, I was finally able to get over there an...

I need help

08-13-2009 08:15 PM by Martina | 54 comments »

I am trying to build a buffet table for my mom for Christmas- from scratch. I have drawn up 7 different plans. I cant make up my mind which one, so I went to my local hardware store to look at wood, hoping this would help, well the gentleman that was helping me – insulted me, he asked what kind of tools I had, I told him, the he said “well that’s your problem, why don’t you go back into the kitchen and let the man of the house do it! I looked at him and said “Not married, no boyfr...

garden tool organizer part 1

In this video I talk about how to make repeatable cuts using a stop block and how the miter joints are the best jointey option for the project. I also cut all the 2×4s and start assembly. Now all I did to assembly it was just glueing the divider pieces and screwing them in

steel wool and deck

08-13-2009 12:54 PM by Mitch1947 | 6 comments »

Big problem on new cedar deck. I put red postes notes as markers on several boards in preparation to show contractor where there were problems with the decking boards. Before I had a chance to remove these pieces of paper, it rained. When I removed them there were red stained marks where the postes notes were. These would not wash off. I tried fine steel wool and water. This “worked” and I hosed everything off. The next morning to my horror there were blackened areas where...

found wood #13: wood gloat: superior grade alder scraps

08-13-2009 09:43 AM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I can’t believe it’s been just over 3 weeks already since I picked this stuff up. This year is cruising past me. I saw an ad one morning – only a few minutes old – for a very large pile of scrap wood, mostly superior-grade alder, but with a mix of some other things in there, like plywood, and walnut. I wrestled internally for a bit. Do I really need more wood? The answer, it turned out, was yes. I wrote, mentioned I was a budding woodworker, and would love to find uses...

Desk rebuild #1: Desk destruction

08-13-2009 07:35 AM by Ben | 1 comment »

So I took the desk apart and stripped the paint. Oddly enough, this entire desk was built without a drop of glue (except the top). Screws, nails, and other hardware held everything together. This made it pretty easy to pull everything apart and salvage for future use. Here is what I think I have: Legs: 4 in decent shape minus a few small cracks that I should be able to fill with epoxy. Aprons: The rear apron is still a pretzel, but otherwise OK. Side aprons look fine. The front was ...

The desk

08-13-2009 07:21 AM by Ben | 2 comments »

When I got married over eight years ago my wife came along with a rather large, white desk, complete with a missing front drawer. As the story goes, this desk was once in the Swedish embassy and was taken home by my mother-in-law when it was no longer needed (probably 25 years ago now). She wanted a white desk, so she painted it. The pictures show some of the condition after many years and moves—a significant cup in the top, the aprons twisted over half an inch. I was all ready to b...

hand carved redwood bench #2: Some progress and an introduction

08-13-2009 05:45 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well the bench is coming along about as slow as possible. Working full time now doesn’t leave much of a window for me to be out there carving. And with some commissioned jobs coming up it will be worse soon. So I’ve been sort of rushing the carving while I’m out there and have to say that I feel somewhat bad, as I am trying to blog how to carve as well. So the tutorial will still happen, but it may not be up par (if they ever are).Right now I want to say that I’ve r...
