Another day, another nickle #24: Here I set High , a gettin' ideas.......................

10-15-2010 05:05 PM by Thos. Angle | 19 comments »

I truly wish I had some woodworking to talk about but we are still in the mode of not being home to be in the shop. Our daughter Julie had twin baby boys in August. When we were done at Snake River Ranch the first of September, Carleen didn’t even stop at the house. She came straight here, Riverside, California. I stopped and worked in the saddle shop for a month then had to come here to see my wife. The possibilities of finding a winter job were nil so I again changed horses. I began ...

Built In Closets #1: Getting Started - I hate wire shelves

10-15-2010 04:50 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

Recently the wire shelves in our closets have started to fall down due to overloading. A normal person might have given away some cloths and re mounted the shelves. An aspiring lumber jock, however, will recognize a chance to rip out everything and rebuild from scratch. So I decided to the take the lessons learned and the designs from my previous closet project and scale it up to a room that is nearly three times the size Basic design is 6 towers and 4 sets of shelves. Each t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #134: Good Way To Start the Day

10-15-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is only a little after 6:30 and I already scored a major victory! What a wonderful day it is going to be! OK – so it may not be major to everyone else, but it certainly is to me. Many of you may remember that I am in the process of changing over to new software on my site. This is an enormous and complicated task, as I have over 300+ products right now and the list is growing every day. Getting things in the proper order and presenting them in an organized way is no small task....

Shoe Carving Challenge #8: Hung Up

10-15-2010 11:55 AM by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

Oct 15/10 Well, I’ve finally hit the wall … the carving process has been going really well and the personal struggle to push through fears has also been relatively easy and successful… but this week I hit the big barrier, challenge, self-awareness, or whatever you want to call it. It’s been a few days now since Jordan posted the blog on carving the laces and right away I could feel the wall forming. I put off taking the next step.. and I put it off some more.. bu...

Very litttle Dresser #1: Plans, history and glue-up

10-15-2010 03:43 AM by toolferone | 2 comments »

This really started about 12 years ago when I walked into a furniture refinishers shop and saw the neat little dresser. I asked if I might take dimensions and a few pictures. I then lost the plans and photos. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and I was very pleased to find them. I don’t know what I am going to do with it after I make it but I am going to build it as an exercise in new woodworking techniques to me. There will be sliding dovetails (machine cut). There will be both thr...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #32: Flattening a log..

10-15-2010 02:15 AM by degoose | 13 comments »

I got this dirty old piece of log… actually half a log… someone had split it down the middle … with both an axe and a chainsaw… fairly ugly and unstable… Using MDF cleats I pinned the log to the TWC and ran a surfacing head over it… flat and smooth… cross cut the ends and rotated and bookmatched for legs.. drilled some holes with a forstner bit for some tea candles… nice centrepiece for a table..More pics of the finished piece here..
