Novice Rambling Quickie #2: Bench Stability - Part II

05-07-2010 06:19 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 0 comments »

Tonight, as I write this, my wife is out with her sisters and I’m exercising my skills in fatherhood. I’m also watching my nephews. Currently, the boys are sleeping and my daughter has just finished her 8 PM snack. Yes, this means I’m not in the shop again tonight, but that’s okay. I did spend a little time in the shop yesterday and as limited as it was, I did manage to work a little further on my knot repair exercise. Welcome to Fight Club.

new project #1: Walkin stick

05-07-2010 06:10 AM by m7trevlyn | 0 comments »

So today I was out in the back yard with the wife and found a slightly crooked stick that was about six feet long, with the largest crook being at a comfortable spot for my hand as I walked. So I figured as a simple project I’m going to work it into a finished walking stick. Wish me luck, if I mess this up then I shouldn’t be wood working at all.

Hand tool cabinet #2: Sprucing up a little

05-07-2010 06:08 AM by MedicKen | 6 comments »

I started a hand tool cabinet a couple of weeks ago and due to other obligations and work I haven’t had much time to devote to it. I did get the main cabinet together and hung on the wall in its final resting place. It looks a lot bigger hung than it did on the bench. After looking at it for a few days I wasn’t happy with the doors. The doors were cut from the box on the table saw and attached with full length piano hinges. The doors looked like a big, flat, ugly surface that was ...

Prototypes #8: Segmented bowl with floating bottom

05-07-2010 02:30 AM by darryl | 7 comments »

Being a fan of segmented turning I joined the group Segmented Woodturners, a chapter of the AAW, earlier this year. While I’ve made quite a few segmented turnings, I have not yet made a segmented bowl… well until now! The current preseident of the Segmented Woodturners group is Malcolm Tibbets, an astonishly talented turner. Malcolm has written a book on segmented turning and has also produced four dvd’s on the subject. With Malcolm’s advice and encouragement, I inc...

As I stated in my last video I have a few Ideas on what finish I might use but am unsure. Once the chair is all finished I ...

A personal challenge - The make #2: Day 2

05-06-2010 07:11 PM by BritBoxmaker | 10 comments »

Hello again. Day two of the challenge. I decided to measure up everything and arrange it before me to see what materials I have to make this box.It didn’t take long to decide on a four sided box. I will make it vertically grained as this is where I have most length in the flitches and I’ll loose at least 2mm height when I seperate the box halves, top from bottom . Another piece will be the bottom of the box and the last will be the lipping for the inside, this will locate the top...

Adventures in Finishing wood

05-06-2010 05:53 PM by Bob #2 | 13 comments »

From blotch controlIt seems one of the most difficult tasks for woodworkers is finding a stain and finish system that’s capable of giving consistent and durable results.For many years I had used nitrocellulose lacquer for my projects with appropriate oil and or water-based stains. One of the problems with lacquer isit is extremely volatile and subject to vaporize organic compounds that could be dangerous from a health perspective. With this in mind, I set out to try and adapt my syste...

A journey into the workshop. #55: Cleaning therapy...

05-06-2010 05:06 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy after work every day this week with projects that SWMBO has deemed I will be doing… We bought a queen memory foam mattress set for the guest bedroom, and I got to pick it up and move it in. Now this bed is a very simple bed, just a roller frame, and mattress set. Anyway, so the bed gets put in, then we haul tail over to the linens shop to get a sheet set, and of course a bed skirt because the bare roller frame is fugly… Now the guest bedroom more or less...
