Well in this installment I apparently did a bunch of things funny how you have to do that to keep a project going. So in order of accomplishments Carved under arms Worked a bunch on the headrest Worked a bunch on the back braces Sanded, sanded, and sanded head rest Sanded and sanded ….... and sanded back braces Sanded and sanded chair in many spots but getting closer Installed back braces with head rest and drilled holds attached with screws and placed temporaril...
So here’s the project I’ve been working on today, a little dull but it had to be done. It’s a bunch of sample doors because customers are always curious about the different types of woods and it’s hard to give a good example sometimes. Originally I was going to make them different styles but for the sake of consistency and because it’s usually just the wood people are undecided on, I decided to make them all the same. So here they are, I will be staining and f...
Hello LJ buddies, I spent most of my shop time, fussing about making some very precise cuts. My router table jig has become one of my favorite things in the shop, and it severed me well today. Finally…the blog is done…it is exceptionally mediocre tonight. Sorry. http://su.pr/50vqIM Brian
As I read all the workbench design and construction information that I can get my hands on, I find myself gravitating toward the old English joiners style of work bench. Simplicity seems to be the main idea with these benches. All of my woodworking to date has been powertool woodworking, but I am trying to get into some handtool woodworking. To that end, I think that I will design an English (Nicholson) style bench with wide front and rear aprons, but not quite as wide as what is typically fo...
I recently posted a question about bandsaws in one of the forums and I received tons of great information and advice. The forthcoming and helpful nature of all the guys and gals on this site never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, I stumbled upon a store here in Nashville that I was completely unaware of…General Industrial Supply. I decided to stop in after work yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I picked up a 12” JET bandsaw from their “scratch & dent” area and I only f...
Well I am going to be out of the shop and going through withdrawals for a few weeks. I am hopping a plane to Gateshead England, in the morning for a three-week business trip. When I return I am off to Fort Sill Oklahoma, to see my daughter graduate from Army Boot Camp. Then it is off to the in-laws in South Dakota for a few days, finally I return to Texas on the 20th of August when I can get back into my shop after a 34-day hiatus. I shall try to log on to LumberJocks from time to time ...
While I was staying with Brenda and Alan Walker last weekend .. they live in Maaroom on the coast just outside Maryborough…You can see Fraser Island from their front gate… well I was there for the Wood Show… more on that coming up… as soon as I can edit the film I took…. anyway while I was there…. Alan brought out two wooden toys that I just had to share with you…The first is a car… with moving cams… the other is a pull along frog… ...
Today was the last day of class in the morning. My priority was to get my bent lamination out of the jig and begin to fit and shape it. Due to the layout of my T nuts I wasn’t able to get as dramatic curves as I was hoping for but I think it turned out well none the less. After some final sanding I attached the back to the chair. I plan on plugging the screw holes with some walnut plugs but I think I’m going to finish both surfaces where they mate with at least one coat ...
I got the itch to do a little photography (one of my past hobbies) in the shop. The wood is spinning at about 1000 rpm.
Well the time is here. I’m going down to Springfield to get my bandsaw from Grizzly. I’m getting the G0513X2.Leaving in the morning with my cousin and his truck. I’ve been waiting for this for a while now. Can’t wait to get it home setup and running. I’ve reworked the shop to make room I think. I will let everyone know when they are done.I hope I get some sleep tonight. I want to thank you all that replyed to my posts about the bandsaws I was looking at.
