So if you have not figured this out yet——I should warn you—- Sketchup is addicting! Beware if you start playing with it – you won’t be able to stop! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. :-) I’m having some internet trouble so have not uploaded my latest “creation”, but hope to do so soon. Just thought I’d give you all fair warning. Happy sketching.
Good News / Bad News Bad Newswell, I’ve tried the fasteners as hinges on the Fairy Door #9 and it’s not going to work. The door keeps falling off when opened. So.. I’ll either have to do some magic metal work to the hinge to keep them secure or… I’ll have to pry them off and find another alternative. But the GOOD NEWS is …. I have pictures. Side 1I used my router plane to create a dado in the pillar (joining the brown section to the yellow wall)Als...
You may be wondering when I am going to stop daydreaming and get on with making a chair. The short movie that I produced to accompany this entry provides a ‘short-cut’ to the main action! It’s just that I know that some people are going to ask “What’s the point in making furniture by hand?” and I think that it’s difficult to explain, I certainly can’t put it in a sentence. I have read entire books by people who have tried to answer this question ( e.g. David Pye – “Th...
I just posted the Led Zeppelin and Him woodburned art. I am already wondering what I should do next. I was thinking Anthrax or maybe Cradle of Filth. If you have any ideas feel free to post them. Pat
Somewhere I think is information on a washable face mask (made of cotton or similar material?) that is touted to last a long time. I’ve searched for it on Lumberjocks to no avail. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? And if so where can I find one? I’ve also Googled it, not.
Aug 19, 2008 Warning: NO PICTURES attached. (So if you “NEED” pictures you will just have to wait until I’m finished the project!) Fairy Door #9 is for my #1 grand-daughter who will be turning 6 next month! This door, of course will have to be special and that means that it will be more than just a door. Yes, the door is going to open. Well, that’s the plan anyway. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out the hinges with the door only being 1/4” thick...
Well here we are, another week has gone by and the only dust I have produced has been from sheetrock. I started out on a simple project of changing out a cable for the TV and found that the last owner of my house had run the TV and Phone cables through metal studs in the basement with out chafing protectors. Needless to say for the last two weeks I have been tearing down sheet rock, running cables, and replacing walls. Just goes to show you that there is never enough time to do it right,...
Figured since I started, might as well share my ongoing project to get these two cheapo planes into serviceable condition! After perusing the various blogs about plane restoration here on LJ’s, I decided a simple first step would be to get ‘em taken apart and do a first round cleaning. I looked at David's blog, and though I was intrigued by electrolysis as a rust-removal process, I thought to myself “Isn’t that just really an electroplating going on? Is it reall...
Today I recieved the latest issue of Woodcarving Illustrated and low and behold I noticed an artical of a project posted by Dennis on LJ’s. Dennis I as a fellow LJ wanted to say in public forum Congradulations on such fine work. Here is a pic of the artical ..Originally published by Fox Chapel Publications for those of you that dont get this magazine.
A few weeks ago Al Navas shared a very nice idea with me. He was touched by a case of one of our fellow LumberJocks – Henrie Schumacher – and he decided to help Schumie to realize his dream to do some woodworking once again… Henrie’s background:Schummie (Henrie) lives in The Netherlands. He is married, has a wonderful wife, and three wonderful children, two boys and one girl. He was a policeman, until tragic events on the job forever changed his life. Henrie is physically...
