It’s pretty quiet around here today. It’s one of those days when I can’t wait to get to the scroll saw, but it is only 7am and I don’t dare until another couple of hours. I was able to finish another drawing last night of a fretwork liner that I am going to market to set under the large jar candles. It will resemble the dresser tray in concept, but it will set underneath the jar. Many people thought that the little dresser tray was made for that purpose, as the size...
The bench is not quite finished but here’s a sneak peak. Bench tour @ the love of wood.
Well, one of these I actually got a while ago, I just haven’t had any time to play with it… I got the #8 late last year, and it has sat around due to the fact that it had a lever cap that was cracked in half (in the picture, it’s in the bottom right). Well, I finally snagged a new lever cap off of ebay, the same day I finally won a #71. I’ve dated the #8 to 1910-1918, based on the patent numbers, adjusting knob size, etc., and the seller of the replacement l...

I wanted to get started, which means I had to paint the outside of the house. This IS a step that could wait until later – but as I am using spray paint, it didn’t seem so logical. That’s after 2 coats of primer! This MDF is very thirsty. I ended up doing 5… and then a coat of paint. (not pictured) So I tackled the little wood pieces while that dried. I didn’t get a before picture because I totally spaced it. Pictured is: 2 Interior Doors1 Ext...
Hello LJ’s, Tonight I wrote some musings about what ‘Type’ of woodworker I might become. I really don’t know, but I do know that there are a lot of great designers who I like. I guess the fun is in finding out. http://su.pr/3SDgV0 Brian
You may have read Otto’s blog entry a bit ago: http://lumberjocks.com/OttoH/blog/16488 I have been working on pricing out this same list, today. In fact I am almost done. But, I found an interesting thing when I was doing it and I thought maybe you all could help me out. A lot of the tools listed were fairly commonplace in 1935, but today are considered pretty rare. As such, they end up being dramatically more expensive (proportionally) than they should be. Also, since then, I thi...
Maker's Mark is small UK company specializing in small production runs of brass & stainless steal name plates specifically for custom made furniture and cabinetwork. After giving up on my search for such a maker I came across the name in the back pages of Fine Woodworking. When I mentioned it on the Australian Woodwork Forums, people (including Mark Aylward from The Solid Wood & Furniture Company) were overall very positive. The above design is an example from their site I l...
If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...
