Extremely Average #173: A Day To Remember

06-24-2010 05:22 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ’s, I did a lot of work on my little walnut box I am building. When it finally came time to write my blog, I had lots of ideas for ways to go about telling the story. I also considered talking about the stuff I got from Lie-Nielson today, or some more about my hand planes. There was even a purchase of a new 45 degree Freud Chamfer bit. I thought about pointing out that I had some factual errors in my piece from two days ago, I cut a goove, not a dado. A clever reader poi...

My maple coffee table #1: Sketchup model, ideas welcome please.

06-24-2010 05:06 AM by DrewM | 6 comments »

My wife asked me if I could make a coffee table for the living room and after she bought me the planer for my birthday I can’t say no. So I spent some time on Sketchup and showed her a view models and this is the one she likes. She likes simple grain patterns and a darker finish. I think maple with a nice darker cherry stain would be a good choice. I don’t have much experience with finishing wood but that will have to be the focus of another blog entry. Well anyway here is a pictu...

Custom Cabinet Construction #2: Finishing the base ends

06-24-2010 01:58 AM by rhett | 1 comment »

I am going to assume you have read my previous entries for this series, this way I can just keep rambling without backtracking. So, putting a finished end on that base cabinet. There are more than a few ways to do this and unless you are building a galley style, wall to wall kitchen, you will need to think of a way to address this issue. There are more than a few ways to reach your desired destination and each way will give your finished project a look all its own. Let me begin by say...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #5: My Future Workshop

06-24-2010 01:37 AM by Jimi_C | 11 comments »

The last couple weeks have been insanely busy – we bought a new house and moved! The good thing is, the laundry here is on the first floor, so I’ve got the 1300sqft basement all to myself :D Here are a couple of pics, with tools and workout equipment strewn all over the place from the move-in: I cannot wait to start getting things setup. So far, the only problem has been that it’s not a walk-out, so getting my one large workbench (the one I dumpster-dove for)...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #3: Breaking in the new shop dog... I am exhausted!

06-23-2010 05:30 PM by dbhost | 11 comments »

I guess you should be careful what you ask for right? As folks know by now, Brody, our very fresh, paint not quite dry on him yet Yellow Labrador Retriever puppy came home with us Sunday afternoon. Now he spent a good sum of time Sunday evening asleep. This was NOT how things were to continue though… Due to the vet’s insistence that we keep him away from other dogs, or where other dogs have been until he has completed his shots and everything, we have had to resort to paper ...

Skill Progression - A Woodworking Noobs Rambling

06-23-2010 02:28 PM by Maveric777 | 8 comments »

I woke up this morning, snagged a cup of coffee, and went out to the shop. By the time the cob webs started clearing up I realized it was 5:10 in the morning and I was sitting in my stool staring at my latest project. I couldn’t help but chuckle thinking about my bride asking me constantly if my mind ever quits thinking about woodwork….. Maybe it doesn’t…. I will take that badge with honer…lol Well I started looking at the top of my little box I am making my b...
