My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1749: Longing for 'Routine'

07-22-2016 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been over three weeks now since we made our 'final move' to our new home. In reality, it is closer to four. I look back and consider 'moving day' as the day we finally brought the cats here to our new home and began sleeping here, after our bed arrived. One would think that we would be all settled by now. Anyone who knows both Keith and I know how much we love to be organized. While he and I have many differences in the way we do things, one thing that we really se...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #3: Cannon prep

07-21-2016 04:59 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 4 comments »

Well still not a whole lot of woodworking yet. I spent two days removing old paint and loose rust with a needler and wire wheel. After that I coated the surface with ospho to convert the rust to clean metal. Then I put the cannon in a mock up cradle and took some more measurements. Finally I hung the cannon up for primer and paint. ! removal. Cleaned up and putting ospho on. Fresh coat of ospho. Cured ospho and placed in moc...

Posting high res pictures

07-21-2016 04:13 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 1 comment »

A personal friend of mine asked me how I was able to make the pictures of my workshop available for viewing on the Internet as I refused to use Facebook and similar invasive propaganda. As I went and documented it for him I thought that I should share it in case it might give someone some ideas or another alternative. We are often confronted with posting pictures on many of these types of forums, especially of highres pictures. If you load an image here into LJ it automatically gets resi...

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #4: Feeling Froggy

07-21-2016 02:12 AM by JayT | 5 comments »

Here’s where we left off. Mouth opening has been cut and worked to final dimension. Now it’s time to get the frog to fit. A transitional frog has the little bump out on the bottom where the lever cap screw attaches. On an original body, there’s a pocket for that part, we just need to recreate it. Easiest way to mark it out is to first use a small square to mark a line perpendicular to the bed intersecting the line on the face of the bed. This will be the ...

Workshop construction from dream to reality. #6: coming together

07-20-2016 11:38 PM by DalyArcher | 0 comments »

Time for an update I suppose. My little buddy helped me strip forms a few days after the pour. The pour turned out great. No cracks or low spots. Not a polished finish, but I do intend to put a subfloor over top so I am not too fussed about the finish. After the pour I ordered the material for the walls and began sinking 3 1/2” ardox spikes with my trusty, yet seldom deployed framing hammer. In short order I had two large sections of wall framed and wandered over to ask the ...
