Yo whats up everybody now as most of you know I moved about 3 weeks ago I put out my shop tour last week. Well I just finished getting my pegboard up after I filmed and realized that pegboard works ok but then I started having problems like I couldn’t get stuff to stay on so I decided to look at other storage options. Well I could use a cleat system which basically has a angle cut all the way down and it also has a angle shape on the back of the box and it hangs on the groove. The only ...
Well,As you may or may not know, my wife and I are expecting our 2nd in February. Our first will be 2 next week and we have recently changed her crib into a toddler bed (conversion 2 of 3). Her crib is alright, but as you might expect, it is some type of plastic-like veneer over mystery wood. When we got the news, I decided to build a convertible crib myself this time around. I figured if I was going to spend a couple hyndred bucks for a crib, might as well buy some nice lumber and spend ...
Hey Everyone! here is the second video of the Teen Age Woodworker Series. It is about lumber. my main goal for this episode was to give beginners a basic understanding of their wood so you can use it to work for you and understand how it works. This is pretty basic stuff but i remember as a beginner a video very similar to this was a big help to me so i relayed all of that imformation in my own way as well as added a lot of information that i thought would be good for a new woodworker to...
Hello again lumberjocks, the work on the T.V. stand is still going, only slower than I had hoped. Work and life in general has slowed the progress some, but still having fun in the shop when I can. I now have the face frame on the lower unit and the doors are made, still need sanding and cut to final size. I have decided to order the pocket door slides for the middle doors, since the daughters games will be in there and it would not be nice to have a door broken off by someone running though ...
I am building a cradle for a friend from rough walnut. I would like to know if thier is a general rule for the amount of I need. Is it 10, 20 or 50% extra for waste or is does it very to much from lot to lot? Is thier a way of telling how much colour in it before milling.
Iam a retired hobbyist & I enjoy making toys which are then donated at Christmas to inner city kids. As a consequence I immediately deviate from the author’s finishing suggestions & put no finish whatever on the toys & rely entirely on contrasting colors of the wood species involved to provide interesting contrasts. Why ? With the recent scares concerning toys with toxic finishes (China) & because I never see either the parents or the children who receive my toys I go wi...
I have seen many posts on this site that describe a particular piece as “Zen” and while this word is not used in strict historical definition, I thought it might be interesting for some of you to share a bit about what I have learned about Buddhism and how one might be able to bring some Buddhist attitudes into the process of woodworking. So contrary to the title of this little post there isn’t really any such thing as Zen aesthetics. Zen refers to certain strains of practice within ...
I am trying another attempt at a live feed from the shop with ustream. It has dropped off several times but seems to have stabilized for the last several minutes. I updated my Adobe Flashplayer to see if that would help. Here is a link to the project that I am working on: http://www.flickr.com/photos/toddclippinger/sets/72157618830672749/ Here we go-
Well here I am now. The carving continues. I believe now that I am done with this first side. I wasn’t sure what to do to be honest with you, so I just sat there at the couch with it on my lap. I cut a piece of paper and taped it to the gun, cutting around the Drake. I just started doodling on it while watching TV and this is what I came up with. I decided that I wanted his Initials on the piece, but also knew I wanted them framed in leaves. These leaves are out of my head, so the...
Now that I received the tail vises for my workbench, I have modeled them in Sketchup so that I can play around with it for a more precise location and drilling plans before I have to physically deal with the heavy top material. This model is design to be light and fast, and as such does not go into vast details such as screw spirals etc. Instead it is designed to be used for measurements and sizing, both in terms of the actual hardware measurements and shapes, and screw hole locations. ...
