Extremely Average #129: Your Horoscope is ready...

05-11-2010 05:39 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello LJs, Many years ago, I started to write as a way to entertain my friends at GEICO. I would often compose a set of horoscopes and send them to the those with an odd since of humor. Tonight’s blog discusses my continued practice with cuts, but quickly degrades into a set of horoscopes. I hope you enjoy. Brian

Bed #3: More headboard finishing work

05-11-2010 04:54 AM by tyskkvinna | 5 comments »

Have not had a chance to do any more actual sawdust making… want to though!! I did some sanding, filling, staining, sanding, and shellac’ing. The head-side (left) turned out a bit darker than I intended but I’m okay with it. I distressed it a little bit, which has been my plan all along, and I love how it looks. I love having the super smooth and shiny surface with the dings and scratch marks very visible. The footboard is absolutely perfect for wha...

New wood species

05-11-2010 03:22 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

I made a trip to my favorite wood supplier. The reason that he’s my favorite is that all of the wood I get is free. I get the scraps, cutoffs, splits etc from his door and window making process. I’ve been collecting Honduras Mahogany in my latest trips. Today one of the pieces had a name on it 6/4 Acajou. That was new to me and in my research is also called Honduras Mahogany some places call it just Genuine Mahogany. Over the last month I’ve probably picked up about 300 B...

Haidyn's Crib #3 - Started Head Board Assembly and Front Assembly

05-11-2010 03:14 AM by ND2ELK | 10 comments »

I was going to make the curved moldings and trim next but the roller support I ordered for the band saw is on back order. So I decided to start work on the head board assembly and front assembly. The first thing I did was rough cut all the pieces I needed for the crib. After cutting the pieces for the front assembly to finish size, I laid out the slats and doweled them to the bottom and top boards. I had to remember to work from the center out for layout and routing. While the ...

Puzzles - A Gift Meant To Be Regifted - How To

05-11-2010 02:12 AM by DonW | 3 comments »

Several LJs have asked for a blog entry sharing how I made the mini-puzzles that I use to encourage “re-gifting”. They are really very easy to do for those comfortable with using a scroll saw. Here are the steps… 1. Select the subject of your puzzle. I use business card sized cards that are available at Christian bookstores. They are bright, colorful and have inspiring messages. However, you could do the same project with sports or non-sports trading cards, etc. They woul...

Jeweler's Bench #1: The Top

05-11-2010 01:00 AM by Marc | 3 comments »

My wife and I have been sharing my workbench out in the garage for my woodworking projects as well as her jewelry making projects for a while now but we both decided it was time for her to have her own workbench. We looked around online and found some nice looking jeweler’s benches but of course I said: “I could just build you one of those.”, so here we are. I quickly looked around for some plans but didn’t find any so I just had her pick out the one she liked best and...
