Arts & Crafts Night Stands #2: Going Topless...

08-22-2009 09:36 AM by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

I’ve been working the graveyard shift all week (which has seriously impeded my woodworking habit), helping my defacto brother-in-law with his concrete polishing business. It’s pretty cool, especially if you start with the right concrete, dye, aggregate, etc. I was seriously thinking about making the tops for my night stands out of polished black concrete. It would look like granite, only I could do it myself (with his help). It would be water resistant, if sealed properly, so ...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #1: Secret Compartment Toy Box

08-22-2009 08:26 AM by John M | 5 comments »

This project is definitely my most ambitious to date. How complicated can it be right? I’m sure for some of you experts out there, the answer would be “not very”. But for me, this project represents the largest scale project as well as the first that I have had to engineer important aspects entirely on my own. Here’s what I’m doing: I have a nephew who is turning 1 and as a special gift I decided I wanted to make him a “toy” box. I use the...

General Rambling... #1: Happy to be here...

08-22-2009 07:30 AM by John M | 2 comments »

I just recently stumbled upon Lumberjocks and it’s been something that I’ve been looking to join for a while. I’ve been doing a bit of woodworking here and there on projects for about two years now.I started out just looking for something to keep my mind off some very stressful events that were going on and have always found that using my creative side through various outlets helped out, so I thought I may as well try building some stuff. I started out with a couple sm...

New tool gloat

08-22-2009 03:32 AM by Rustic | 9 comments »

Well, I finaly joined the air tool ranks. I just bought a 3 gal. air compressor with 2 inch brad nailer. Got it from HD for $99.00 on clearance. It is a husky with a regulator on it and storage for all the accessories it came with. I asked the wife if I could buy it because I needed it for the flag cases. I also got some walnut 1×10’s 6 pieces from Quixote. The wood arrived on Wed. Yesterday I was sent to the hospital w/chest pain and numbness in my left arm. It turned out to...

My Tools #1: A very Robert Sorby birthday

08-22-2009 12:18 AM by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

Everyone’s going to hate me for this, but I just fell – not literally – into a lot of new Robert Sorby turning tools. The 18th (3 days ago) was my 32 birthday (for you programmers, that’s 100000 in binary – I no longer fit in 5 bits!). Mom sent me a box of Rockler goodies from my wishlist. In typical (for my mom) fashion, she overdid the gift-giving. She’s always been very supportive of my endeavors. Thanks, mom! I’ll have to make her several nice thi...

Big Pine Board #3 Getting to some shaping and cutting

08-21-2009 08:41 PM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Well it took me almost 2 weeks to get the shop reorganized after the delivery of a new table saw and a great set of cabinets I was given from a local school. That ate up most of my time but I’m back on the Big Board project. I got out the circular saw and squared all my edges and was able to arrive at the final overall shape. When the four pieces are assembled and next to each other, it will have this basic design. Extra curves and obviously legs will be coming soon. My next c...

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #6: Graduated

08-21-2009 06:57 PM by Scotach | 3 comments »

I apologize for not completing this blog series. I graduated September of 2008 from the boat school, and I was unable to stay to complete the repairs to the Schooner. I was set to leave Washington State for our drive back to Texas, and the boat had not been completed. 3 or 4 of the guys who working on the boat stayed after graduation to complete the repairs and get the boat back into the water. The boat was finished and relaunched about a month later. I am in the process of compiling the...
