The Wine Rack #2: Preliminary Design

04-08-2010 04:50 PM by Todd Clare | 10 comments »

I’ve measured the space where I’m going to put the rack, and started to want to visualize the design. I opted to fire up Google SketchUp which has been really useful for me in the past in laying things out and seeing them in 3D. This is the preliminary design only, as I still need to move things around and make sure the spacing and height and shadow lines are where I think I might want them. One of the challenges was how to make it “light” looking, and making the ...

Reclaiming Antique Lumber #2: Where it all came from

04-08-2010 04:19 PM by chrisstef | 0 comments »

Sorry about moving backwards in the blog here but i figured that i should show off the pile of reclaimed lumber the table came from. Here is the pile in the driveway, awaiting stacking in the garage. Now after 3 hours of sorting and stacking … Ohh and trust me, i didn’t fill up the side of the garage where the wife parks … i might be dumb but i ain’t stupid!

My Father's Workbench Gets a New Home

04-08-2010 03:05 PM by ~Julie~ | 11 comments »

My father was always very supportive of whatever I did. He was always amazed to see things I had made and liked to tell people about his daughter the woodworker. His workbench sat in the basement of the home my mother still lives in for many, many years. While he wasn’t a woodworker, he sure did tinker a lot with appliances, household things, toys and cars. He used the bench as a place to glue, solder and fix many different items. Since my mother had no need for the bench, she ...

With all these new power tools, why do we still measure in the dark ages?

04-08-2010 08:27 AM by technicallymark | 51 comments »

Quick, which is bigger, 5/16th or 11/32nd? Having trouble? Try this. Which one is bigger 10 or 12? Easy right? I’m all about easy and trying to remember how to convert fractions isn’t really something I want my brain working on with spinning sharp blades around. I’m not sure why we can’t be like the rest of the world and use “metric” for measuring, but it would make life a little easier in the shop. I might be a little biased since I have formal e...

Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Results

04-08-2010 07:58 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 10 comments »

After 30 days of intense building, Wood Whisperer Guild members have finally finished their tables. 67 people participated and thanks to 158 contributors and numerous sponsors, we managed to donate over $8000 to the American Cancer Society! I would like to thank everyone who donated and participated. And of course I would like to thank Duane Moore, the man who this whole event is dedicated to. I hope you will all join me in wishing Duane the best of luck. If you still want to dona...

The Veritas arrives!

04-08-2010 05:53 AM by Rick Boyett | 4 comments »

Today I opened my mailbox and my eyes were alighted with excitement. My “new to me” Veritas low angle block plane had just arrived. My late night browsing of the Woodnet Swap and Sell forum had really paid off. I’ll let you know how much I paid in the review. Boy ain’t she pretty. :) Just a few small specks of rust on the sole, but no pitting. I’ll get her tuned up this weekend and put her through her paces. However, just inspecting the individual parts...

Extremely Average #96: Dry Run Dialogue

04-08-2010 04:12 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ, I have now glued my mallet into one hunk of wood. If you are interested in the conversation I had with the mallet and wish to hear the rediculous joke the wood told, feel free to pop on over to the blog. There is a picture which shows the handle too. I am pleased with how it feels and looks. Brian

I have been working on a podcast for a few weeks and just received approval today. After doing a search for High Rock Woodworking and also just woodworking in itunes I was able to find the podcast, so it looks like a good start. In the podcast I will be sharing tips and stories from fellow woodworkers. I still have some details to work out (like adding a picture) but I am making a good start. Please stop by and give me your comments, even if it is a little constructive criticism. Also,...
