The Great Workshop Vacation

05-21-2010 01:41 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...

A little shaping (rasp to miter the round overs), a little sanding, and a little oil. It’s starting to look like a bench… only upside down. Now just need some help to flip it.

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #3: Cutting the Mortise

05-21-2010 05:39 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

Two of my three new chisels showed up yesterday and after about an hour on the water stones I had the 6mm chisel honed. I flattened the back and sharpened the face. My honing guide would not hold these chisels because they are too deep. Because of this I just sharpened it at the factory angle and did not put a micro bevel on as I had intended. Here is a shot of the chisels. Tonight I got started cutting the first mortise. This is my first attempt at cutting a mortise by hand but i...

Being of scientific mind, I couldn’t let the issue lie from my last blog post on the shifting shades of my clock face. If the hypothesis in my blog post is out to lunch, I would love to discuss it here or on my blog site.

Extremely Average #139: I try to be honest...

05-21-2010 03:29 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJs, My blog post is up, it is fair writing, but nothing to do with woodworking today. I try to let the LJ community know when they shouldn’t bother. This might be one of those times. I did write a really great blog piece today, just not for my blog. It sort of sapped all my creative juices and left me worn out and sleepy. I will do better tomorrow. Brian
