Bookcase Challenge

03-28-2008 03:51 AM by CanadianWoodChuck | 9 comments »

Hi All I just finished playing with my Sketchup drawing for the bookcase challenge. I’m really enjoying using sketchup for my conceptual drawings. I’m so glad that LJ comes up with these ideas, it gives me a great chance to play in Sketchup. If I was to build this bookcase I would love to use Oak veneer core plywood for the carcus, oak trim where required and a contrasting wood like padauk for the face frames. This huge bookcase would cover an area of approximately 5̵...

Taking Better Pictures #1: Cameras and Photo Editing

03-28-2008 03:38 AM by tpastore | 22 comments »

Hello fellow woodworkers, I have enjoyed looking at all of the excellent projects displayed on LJ. They inspire designs and urge me to make that next piece even even more challenging. All these project are shown to the world via pictures. A picture is your way of expressing the time and effort you have spent on a piece. It is important to take time on the composition and setup of your picture taking to optimize the quality of your pictures. After all, you have spent countless hours wo...

Fine Woodworking does ezee-feed review #2: Ezee-Feed Gone Wild?

03-28-2008 02:25 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Hi everyone; Since a lot of LJ’s have been following the progress of my ezee-feed project, I wanted to share part of my day today. I hope no-one is put off by my posting this or thinks I’m bragging as I’m really in no position to brag, but it was a very special day for me. (I don’t have a lot of those since embarking on this project). I’ve had a number of orders waiting for the first batch of Ezee-Feed units to come out of the factory, since I stopped makin...

Thanks for the warm welcome.

03-28-2008 12:59 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

Hello all, Thanks for the welcome and I hope to post here often (now that I’ve figured out how to add to this blog thing). I’m currently trying to build a router table. I drew it up in Sketchup (I really like that tool as well), it is like building a rough draft on the computer. I’ve used and taught AutoCAD but man can you crank out a drawing quickly with this. I’ve bought a Benchdog plate and drilled my holes according to the Triton template (the PC2s) and th...

Bookcase Challenge redux

03-28-2008 12:27 AM by Cdinde | 5 comments »

Alright—newbie status is showing here. Since yesterday’s post incorporated a couple of photo links in a format incompatible with this forum, here goes try number 2 (now that I’ve found the directions on how to link them—yes, I’m a guy and I don’t apologize for it). The photo above shows one of the more complicated bookcase-style projects I’ve done – but it doesn’t meet the criteria of this challenge, whereas …. Photo 2R...

Plane parts

03-28-2008 12:18 AM by MarkPopenhagen | 11 comments »

I’m currently restoring my grandpa’s old Stanley #6 plane that I plan to use, NOT as a collection item. I know all the work I’m doing on it destroys the collection value, but I think Grandpa would have been happier knowing I was using it. I don’t have it in front of me right now, but the two patent dates are in 1900. There isn’t a bolt (or even a hole for one) to move the frog forward or back if that helps anyone. Unfortuantely, it was tossed in a box for y...

Today I met with a friend at his house and while in the garage i noticed a band saw covered up in the corner.I ask what make it was and he uncovered it. Wow! It looked new, I thought to myself “I would love to have a saw like that. I have an old craftsman and it has seen better days. About then he says if I would be willing to trade for a little work I could have it…Double WOW!Of course I took him up on the offer, I know little about it except they bought it new used it a couple ...

It’s 8’ wide, floor to ceiling, fitted between walls in out loft office.This is my first post, I have the feeling the pics will not work… so the addresses are below.This is my first dive into real woodworking. Done in my basement with a minimum of tools...

Challenge04 #1: Noah's Ark Book Case

03-27-2008 05:24 PM by romansfivefive | 11 comments »

Based on the fact that there is no way I have yet developed the skills to create the kind of furniture I see posted here daily, I wanted to go with something a little more whimsical in the hopes that my skills as an artist would compensate for limited experience as a craftsman. I had this idea for an Noah’s Ark Book Shelf that is at is’t base just a plain rectangular book shelf with a few extras that (I think) make it much more fun. I tried my hand at sketchup and have come to...
