A Thousand Posts Later... #1: Still Having Fun!!

06-30-2010 01:38 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

A Thousand Posts!! Not much at all, compared to the more prolific here, but it’s somewhat of a landmark for me… I’ve been reflecting on what my time here has taught me…I’ve learned better and faster ways of doing things. The combined skills of the members here on LJ’s is unparalleled!! Their willingness to share those skills is truly a breath of fresh air, in what seems an increasingly hostile and unfriendly world…I’ve learned that those same pe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #27: I Love When That Happens

06-30-2010 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Did you ever have a day where everything just falls into place and things turn out the way they are supposed to? I love those days. It isn’t that the other days are a disaster or anything, but looking back I can honestly say that it was definitely a good one. Not only did I accomplish what I set out to do, but unexpectedly, I liked the result much better than I thought I would. After writing yesterday morning, I set out to fine tune the patterns for the two Christmas candy dishes...

Crafts Shows R Us #14: Percent of Items Sold

06-30-2010 07:20 AM by closetguy | 12 comments »

There has been a lot of active craft show discussion lately since we are in the middle of the season for some of us. I was running my spreadsheets the other day and decided to post some numbers to show what is selling here in the South. I took the last eight shows and did a pie chart of the percentage of sales for each category. I generally have three size boards in both end grain and face grain. Anything smaller is useless and anything bigger presents a transport problem. My sizes are...

Mikros Kosmos #1: And it begins.

06-30-2010 05:12 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

Okay all. Time for something a little bit different. This story has a preface: When I was wee, I kept to myself. I was not particularly interested in playing with other children, though I did have some friends. I had a series of autoimmune disorders that kept me occupied (and often still do). I was allowed to have any books I wanted. While I did my fair share of reading of young adult literature (Nancy Drew!) my favourite thing – and thing I asked for most – were things abou...

Hello All, Time Travel and Butterflies – Extremely Average My latest blog post, full of silliness. I realized that I could thickness plane my bit of walnut with my router table, much more easily than with the jig I built to plane it. Brian

My maple coffee table #2: Design change, Thanks for the help!

06-29-2010 11:16 PM by DrewM | 5 comments »

I made a few small changes to the design and I very happy with the results. I made the aprons smaller with a more gentle curve that goes all the way into the legs. The legs still have a straight taper on them as i couldn’t find a way to continue the curve without it looking awkward. Thanks again for your opinions and here is a picture of my “final” draft. Here is the previous version Next step is going lumber shopping. I want to try and find some tiger maple fo...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

06-29-2010 08:39 PM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...
