Solar kiln #3: Almost complete!!

11-01-2008 09:43 PM by Julian | 10 comments »

I finally can see the end is near for this project. The top is now weathertight, with the exception of the 2nd layer of plastic that is to go on the bottom of the frame, and the baffle with a fan installed . The weather is starting to cool off, so I am not too worried about things going sour on me. Here are some pics of the kiln loaded with just over 200 bf of red elm..

and then it becomes....... #2: behind closed doors

11-01-2008 09:23 PM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The exci...

Here’s an update on the walnut clock. The face isn’t finished as of yet but it won’t take long, just a couple of circles, a signature, and a border.The case is almost finished. I need to wax it and install the works. Well come to think of it there’s still a lot to do. Here’s the case. And the hood with an unfinished face. I should be finished very soon. More later.

Get ready for BlakeFlicks!

It is so convenient, as it turns out, that my wife really wanted a video camera for her birthday. Well, this is what she got… Grab some popcorn, because you can bet I’ll be “borrowing” the camera for a little shop time when I get a chance.

Jet Miniature Woodworking Collectables

11-01-2008 01:32 AM by matt garcia | 10 comments »

Hello fellow Lumber Jocks!! As you all probably know, Jet is giving away these collectables with certain purchases. These are very detailed, and extremely authentic. The spindle sander comes with all the different sized spindles even. Working for a Jet distributor, when I heard about these, I ordered the entire set! Maybe one day they will be worth something! Right now, they are very neat to look at, and I’m storing them in their individual boxes. Hope you enjoy them! ...

Tool thoughts #12: Lights, camera Sawdust!

11-01-2008 01:04 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

I haven’t been out in the shop much the past couple of weeks, short of turning a couple of pens and starting a spoon last weekend. I decided to rearrange a few things today, starting with my temporary wiring panel. I’m still saving up for real wiring in the shop, among other things. I Swapped locations on the bandsaw and storage cabinet. I hung a 4’ shop fixture, which made a world of difference. I also ran an extension cord up and over to power my tablesaw and chop...

Kitchen Remodel #8: My first try at Corian

10-31-2008 10:37 PM by Karson | 24 comments »

Well this was my first try at assembling a Corian top for the base cabinets. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual gluing because I wasn’t sure of the amount of time I’d have as i was doing that process. Now that I have a better feel for the amount of time it takes, I’ll take some assembly pictures for the rest of the counter top. I started with the corner cabinet that is 24” X 24” and is where we currently have a microwave and toaster. New cabi...

This week in urban logging #8: Mother nature works for me some times

10-31-2008 04:30 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

Another log from the same load the “interesting” mulberry came from in my last entry…I thought this looked interesting as well. This white oak had laid in a back yard of an abandoned farm house and was forgotten about by people for a couple years…mother nature didn’t forget about it, she went to work spalting it. And did a nice job I might add.

Solar kiln #2: loading the charge

10-31-2008 01:02 PM by Julian | 4 comments »

Well, the time has finally come to load the kiln. Now I am wishing that I would have made the kiln 5’ wide. When I initially came up with the dimensions, I had only measured a few of the elm boards I had recently milled. Well, it turnd out that most of the boards are 19” wide, not 16” wide, so I couldn’t get two rows in the kiln. I got all but 4 boards to fit, but I am not sure how it will dry since the top board are only 2 inches from the roof. I painted some leftover...

Getting back to the shop

10-31-2008 04:54 AM by Rustic | 3 comments »

Well, it has been a few days since I have been in the shop. My school work has bogged me down. I am planning on getting into the shop this weekend. As I need to start building a desk for our new library room in our house. Thanks to Tearan, I have some beautiful veneer to use for the desk top. Hey Tearan, I am going to use Maple for the frame and an MDF substrate. It is still in the planning stages. Not sure how I want to do the legs though. Any thoughts? It is going to be a 2 part desk that w...
