Don't lose your shirt on Ebay!

12-11-2010 05:14 PM by StumpyNubs | 28 comments »

I built a beautiful Bombay desk from rich mahogany and rosewood. I spent months hunched over it with my carving chisels creating perfectly crisp details. When I was done I knew it was the most beautiful thin I’d ever make. I put it on ebay, sold it for twenty five bucks to a guy who complained it was going to cost so much to crate and ship across the country, and when it arrived it was dented and splintered, so I had to give a full refund, pay the return shipping and burn it in the shop stove...

Hoarder pride?

12-11-2010 03:17 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

Before the flamers begin I will make this blanket statement I too have a room (and an attic space) in my shop that is a junky catchall for everything. Many of us here have nice shops. Some have lots of room, Others creatively manage less. Some have lots of tools, some not. We all do the best we can. So, I was wondering. I’ve noticed that some people, in thier posting of pictures of their shops will include one picture of the ‘disaster room’. That room, like min...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #191: Overcoming "Blocks"

12-11-2010 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, I started the day today with putting the coffee grounds directly into my cup instead of the pot. What does that tell you? I had heated the final cup from yesterday’s pot first thing while I was in the process of making a fresh one (I have a coffee press, so I do finish what is left the first thing when I get up) and I put a nice big spoon of grounds directly into my cup. Hmmm. . . . I actually set the alarm this morning to get up at 6:30 because I slept until 8am yesterday m...

My First Bandsaw Box #1: Overview

12-11-2010 05:39 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

I am in the middle of making a lot of Christmas gifts right now. I was going to make an inlayed tray as one of the gifts, but ran into a bit of a problem. Afraid that I wouldn’t finish the tray in time to ship to the east coast for Christmas, I decided to put that project on the back shelf for now and make a bandsaw box instead. I haven’t made a bandsaw box before, so I’ve decided to document my journey along the way. Basic bandsaw box construction seems like it can be...

I haven’t been around much over the past year due to a shop rebuild and a change in my work schedule but I’m back and glad to be here. A year ago at this time my Garage shop was flooded due to a ruptured pipe in the ceiling so after everything had been guttedmy Wife & I set to work on rebuilding my shop. We started out running a sub panel that would be dedicated for the garage/shop. We ran 4 separate dedicated 110v circuits with 5 outlets each around the shop. 2ea. 220v rec...

12-11-2010 02:34 AM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Design Drawings Completed, For a Music Box Finally finished with the design drawings for a 72 note movement, Music Box. It took me approximately 60 hours to come up with this design. Next is the working drawings, then it’s fun time, the woodworking part. The top marquetry will be a good challenge for me, but I’m really looking forward to it. On the front of the box is a Lyre Harp. Carved out of solid ebony. The foot design is a segmented turning with Maple and 8 Ebony pin st...
