This will be the best investment that our clients will ever make, with multitouch technology, drafting, as well as designing tools along with a custom built in computer, a Wacom 21ux cintiq, monitor recording speakers, touch opened drawers and a desk equipped with adequate enough space. The executive desk should be well designed but should also incorporate a executive, modern environment. The desk should have ample enough space for designing, pre-production audio engineering and client pres...
“Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way. It’s like it aint so much what a fellow does, but it’s the way the majority of folks is looking at him when he does it.” -William Faulkner, Novel,1930 ‘As I Lay Dying’ I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed it a great deal, especially after I became use to the style, called stream of consciousness, with which Faulkner penned his ‘tour de force’. In just 6 weeks, w...
I was trying to find a good article/link about popping the grain in black walnut but didn’t find one that really explained it for me. There are many articles/links dealing with maple though. As luck would have it, our woodworkers club in association with the local adult education was going to host a few classes on finishing. These classes were mainly dealing with “old school” finishing techniques including French polish. Although not actually going all the way through th...
I’ve been helping an Australian woodworker to construct a box. She is very competent with a scroll saw, but a little shaky on the box construction side, so I offered to help her out. During this period I have been helping my 12 year old grandson to make a box, so it was easy to just take photos and add a work description for my Aussie friend. Everything went well until we came to a point where we needed grooves to be cut in the sides to hold the top and bottoms of the box. She said she ...
I’ve been working on these for almost a year now. As with any serious project, I build a prototype/model out of cardboard full scale. The main reason for the cardboard is so that we can slice/dice/tape/glue the prototype into what we want. The prototype in the photo above is in its 3rd or 4th incarnation in cardboard alone. The top section contains a lazy susan with dividers to hold up books – both of us like to read in bed, and jump from one book to another depending on o...
So… it started out pretty simple, a Central Machinery #34706 lathe, basically a Jet JWL1236 clone, and the 8 pc Benjamin’s best chisels found their way into my shop… I got a few spindles turned, got pretty good with rolling beads and coves, nothing too serious, just having fun for now… But… I wanted to try bowls… Start with faceplate turning, that worked pretty well for THICK bottomed bowls, but after the first time of mashing the bowl gouge into the ...
As you can easily see, there are a lot of parts to this bed. As shown in the first of the series, I had to glue up quite a few pieces before I really got into anything that resembled a bed. Now I want you to see the pieces, and how some of them are prepped. So far, the order doesn’t make a lot of difference, and to be honest, I’m not sure I even remember what order I did some of this. Each part of each section obviously must be made before the section is assembled. Again, keep in ...
With my one year anniversary on Lumberjocks coming up in a few days, I thought I’d start my first ever blog. I can’t even believe it’s only been a year. When I joined a year ago I had quite a bit of experience with carpentry work and home improvement. I had no idea how little I actually knew about working with wood. One year later, I realize I have only scratched the surface of this hobby (my wife calls it an obsession) and I have a lot to learn. My shop, like my skil...
Not exactly woodworking, but someone could make it a wood project. Even though it is cold and snowy out, Spring is around the corner :) (Yes, I try to be an optimist sometimes). I am sure quite a few of you heard of this but, until last summer, I never heard of this game. It is called Ladder Golf and the goal of the game is to earn points by throwing a bolero (two golf balls connected by a piece of rope) and wrapping them around one of the rungs of a ladder. I made mine out of PVC for easy po...
