I'm not implying that were old, but . . .

A senior moment … at 48? David McClure teaches science and coaches at Faubion Middle School in McKinney . He is also a Teacher Voices volunteer columnist. $5.37. That’s what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bueno said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Emo hairdo said t...

Wood Shows #7: Woodstock 2009

10-02-2009 07:52 PM by MsDebbieP | 11 comments »

October 2/09 Rick and I attended the “Woodstock Wood show” (Ontario Canada) this morning. It was a beautiful rainy day—perfect weather for trekking around in the mud and getting chilled through and through. But—it’s a wood show. You can’t go wrong. The crowds weren’t huge but then it is a Friday morning and it is raining. I spoke to some of the familiar faces: Jim McEntee from Steel City and Paul Fulcher, from Canadian Woodworking to ...

band saw box

10-02-2009 07:02 PM by cherrywood23 | 2 comments »

I have a box that has 3 drawers. It is made out of ceder. It is 5 1/2 by 3 in. the top in, has a slight “S” curve.I started by cuting the S curve then I cut off the back. I think the easiest way to do the drawers is by making a little cuts as possible. You need to use a small blade. glue all the parts and sand. that is as far as I got.

Murphy wall bed Build

10-02-2009 01:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Today I’ll be building a pair of murphy wall with a bookcase separating them. This will be the version I call the Hudson Bay. It is our simple Alpine with some molding added to the face. I use a stock molding found at a local hardwood supplier. They will be built unfinished in maple. The customer will finish it themselves. The bookcase I plan on making it a little shorter and a little shallower in depth then the two murphy beds. I am doing this so that the crown molding will w...

Greene & Greene #5: The Living Room Transformation - Day 4

10-02-2009 05:03 AM by Sam Yerardi | 12 comments »

Day 4 Ok, I got all of the individual pieces machined and now I am doing some fitting to see where everything stands (no pun intended :) )… Here I am assembling the outer frame of the upper door. In the drawing I posted in the last blog, you will notice I had intended to do double doors on each side. When I started sizing the individual members, it seemed to balance a bit better and give more space if I only did one door on each side instead of two. Still in the fitting stage w...

All in One Jig Part 1 #1: Diamonds and Triangles

10-02-2009 03:28 AM by dustbunny | 43 comments »

After posting the quilted lazy susan project,, many of you said you would like to see the jig for this project. I set out immediately to upgrade the jig. There were cuts I wanted to incorporate into this jig, and my original was warping and needed repair anyway. So here it is – 24” X 33” I am pretty proud of this jig, not only because I made it, but because the cuts made from this jig are right on the money. The first ...

Apartment Projects #1: Million Dollar Idea...

10-02-2009 03:06 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

How many of us have one of these somewhere in their home?Yeah, I thought so, almost everyone. Am I the only one, or do other people have a hard time remembering which pull is for which? 50-50 chance and I was forever picking the wrong one!About 5-6 years ago I was visiting a friend and she had one too, with one pull marked with an ornament. I asked whether the marked one was for the light or the fan and she said she forgot! Well, I said to myself, this is ridiculous! So I gave thought to scro...

My Hidden Treasure Find

10-02-2009 02:44 AM by makingitmine | 4 comments »

I bought an Old oldold dresser/chest for $300.We sanded and discovered after research and tons of comparisons that I have an old chest or drawers made of “wormy” chestnut! Which I believe to be unique from what i have researched. The dresser is not made with screws, nails and or any modern methods of “nailing”. It is old fashioned tongue and grove, wooden “nails” or pegs and very old skeleten key locks for each drawer. It also has a “hidden”...

Woodworking vacation #19: Day four - dovetailing with Frank Klauz

10-02-2009 02:18 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

I realized today that I’ve failed to mention the multitude of things that we have been discussing during the day beside dovetails and box making. Frank is a wealth of information. Actually that is really an understatement. Frank has more to teach than he possibly has time to share. I whole heartily recommend taking a class with Frank if you ever get half the chance. Some of the things we have discussed are sharpening, finishing, sanding, scraping, planing, different types of dovetail...
