My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #227: "The Project" Completed :)

01-16-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I sit here basking in the glow of organization, the sun is just coming up and I noticed that another six inches or so of snow has fallen. Already it is going to be a great day. Things are just about finished here, with every cabinet and closet getting a makeover. I figured out that there are five closets in this little place, along with the large cupboards in the bathroom and now the new storage unit. That is lots of storage space to keep organized! It is funny how infectious clea...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #9: Almost Finished

01-16-2011 10:42 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

After the top dried I trimmed it to final length and width and set it on the chest. I can’t seem to get the camera set right to get a representative photo. It doesn’t really look right if I used a flash and turning the flash off doesn’t seem to help much. I need to practice more. I put 3 coats of wipe-on poly on the inside of the chest and on the bottom of the lid. I also cut and fit some cedar panels for the bottom. All that is left to do is paint the outs...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....

Galoot Gloat - Southern Addition

01-16-2011 06:44 AM by swirt | 13 comments »

I just got back from 3 weeks of vacation in Florida. Sunshine, sand in my shorts, relatives…what more could I ask for? I sort of cut the cord technology wise so missed out on all the action here on lumberjocks. Fortunately I didn’t have to go through tool withdrawal as well. I didn’t do any woodworking, but my father passed on a to me a collection of tools that he had from cleaning out my grandfather’s winter home when he passed away more than a decade ago.Florida ...

It's Starting To Get A Little Curly In Here, or Wood Gloat Time!!

01-16-2011 04:53 AM by matt garcia | 9 comments »

Hello fellow woodworkers!! It’s time once again for another installment of “Wood Gloat”!! Rockler had another sale on curly maple last week, so I decided to go and check out the boards. Well I was the 1st one there, but there was another lumber hunter there, and we went at the two pallets. After getting to the bottom of my pallet, I found two incredible boards!! One 14.1/2” wide, and the other 13” wide! I also found 4 boards with similar curl, including o...

My Grandfathers Woodworking cont... #1: My Grandfathers Woodworking

01-16-2011 01:02 PM by DougH | 9 comments »

This is a lathe that may grandfather built back in the 30s. My uncle had it since my grandfather passed away in the early 70s. I was able to get it when they auctioned my uncle’s belongings to keep him in assisted living. It is fairly simple but very functional. I spent most of the day going through everything and it is in amazing shape. The lathe is basically angle iron and pipefittings with brass bushings. Each fitting has an oiler on top. You turn a little brass fitting until a ho...

Cherry Burl #1: Drying

01-16-2011 04:05 AM by Clay Ortiz | 6 comments »

One day after an unproductive morning hunt, with my youngest son I came across this burl on the way back to camp. I have been seeing them all over this new club we joined this year and decided this one was small enough to experiment with. It is about 10” tall and 5” in diameter. I haven’t been able to find any good info on the right way to dry a burl so I thought I would ask you guys for some advise. At this point all I have done is to cut the bark off and put ...

Which method will work the best?

01-16-2011 01:34 AM by nobuckle | 6 comments »

Last summer a friend of mine gave me a small red oak drop leaf table that he had stored in his shed. For him it was a “when I get around to it” project. Well, he never got around to it. When he gave it to me it was in pretty rough shape. The top was starting to separate due to the effects of the environment it was in. The table was partially disassembled so when I got it home I finished the process by removing all the hardware and parts that hold the top to the legs. The le...
