As a volunteer docent at the gallery I got to hear a lecture from the curator of his traveling exhibit, and learn about his amazing works. I became a fan. This wasn’t the beginni...

What was I thinking?

01-27-2010 03:52 AM by GregPT | 6 comments »

So, I decided to take on this big project (my biggest woodworking one ever) and it’s going on much longer than I anticipated… should have known better. :) Here’s the before pic of the wall… Originally we were thinking bookcases floor to ceiling and around the door, then we said, w...

Rescued Wood #12: New Zealand Kauri Pine

01-26-2010 11:18 PM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

So, yesterday while slabbing some Eucalyptus where is was felled in town, our local feller stopped by to ask if I wanted some log sections of a tree they had just felled.

Window shelving #3: So far not so good

01-26-2010 09:55 PM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Here is what I have so far on the window shelving. Had to stop to get TS fixed. The switch went out on it. The pics are of 6ft 1×6 select pine and 1/2 inch pine from Johnson’s workebench.I was able to set up and test fit the dados. I will have my TS back by next tuesday. So this is what I have done. The only thing I have not taken a pic of yet is the actual dados that I have already cut. Hope this helps. BTW I am going through withdrawls without the TS.
