Prospecting for Wood #4: Last Night's Dumpster Dive

06-09-2007 05:31 PM by Paul | 6 comments »

Went for a walk with my wife last night. I have been eyeing this large dumpster behind an old house in our neighborhood for the last few days. I’m not sure whether they’re preparing the house for demolition, remodeling or moving, but the dumpster was full. I took a closer peek in the dumpster last night and went back with the van after we got home. Click the thumbnail pic for a larger view. I guess they tore out a cedar lined closet in the house. I now have enough 3&...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Prologue

06-09-2007 01:47 AM by Zuki | 10 comments »

Well . . . Im starting one of my largest projects to date . . . a set of kitchen cabinets for our new home. These will be made from solid poplar with no glues or adhesives. I will be using pocket hole joinery throughout the entire project. First step is to order the lumber. We will be getting it from a local lumber warehouse who will have to get it from Quebec or Ontario. Prior to ordering I need to know how much lumber I will need for the project. DW has a detailed plan of the cabi...

Cleanup Progress #2: 3 weeks of boxes

06-09-2007 12:16 AM by rookster | 2 comments »

Cleaning is a little like dieting: you get great progress at the beginning and the result is easy to see. I’ve been very consistent about the workshop cleanup over the last three weeks: Tuesday nights are strictly reserved for dealing with trash and clutter; Thursday nights I get to do something a little more fun, like setting up and tuning the Radial Arm Saw or clearing the workbenches for use weekends allow for projects of any type (I’ve just been clearing little fix-it tasks in...

Good new, Good news and Bad news

06-08-2007 08:44 PM by Greg3G | 7 comments »

First, let me thank you all again for all your words of encouragement and support. It really means a lot to me. I had my first follow up this morning, spent an hour and half in the Dr’s office. First the good news, He does not think I did any damage the other night when I rolled over on the shoulder or when I got my hand tangled in the dog’s leash as it leapt from the van. I was pretty nervous that I had messed things up and would have to go through this all over again. Second, I can re...

A Morning At The Brown Workshop

06-08-2007 08:01 PM by Phil Brown | 4 comments »

Not everbody around here works as hard as I do. I had to post this shot of our neighbors cat who follows my wife everywhere and has to be right on top of everything she’s working on including the computer. She’s decorationg a couple of flea market chairs to sell as plant stands. In behind is her animal hospital. She feeds the squirrels off the trunk lid of the car. See the seeds sprouting. I stayed in the shop this morning for a short while working on Jim’s...

"Journeys into the Joints of Joineries" by RusticWoodArt #1: "Wood Joinery"

06-08-2007 02:11 PM by frank | 11 comments »

Wood Joinery told by one who was a misfit all his-elfin-self, till one day while out walking in the forest of dark woods gathering branch wood, he ran into the spirit of an ‘old timer’ who saw into the recesses of this one’s heart, and from that day forth i have never left the deep woods of wood joinery…. Having an imagination that is vivid and livid with complete color scale has at times been both a curse and a blessing, till one day getting tired of shif...

Morris inspired chair #1: The chair becomes real...

06-08-2007 08:42 AM by Bob Babcock | 13 comments »

I figured I’d best get this blog done or I’ll never do it. Some of you will remember the morris inspired chair design I did in Sketchup. Well it’s finally starting to take a real form. This is my 1st attempt to do anything that might be construed as fine furniture…we’ll see in the end if it gets close. I’ve already made a number of mistakes I’m not happy with…a couple of odd twists of wood that split….a couple of bonehead hits with m...

Father's Day Gift

06-08-2007 02:52 AM by oscorner | 16 comments »

With Father’s Day quickly approaching I thought that I would get the jump on the rest of my woodworkers and requested another tool for my woodworking shop. Surprised? This is what I decided on: As I opened the box my excitement grew! Hitachi did an excellent job of packaging this tool. My son helped me get in on the workbench. It weighs 45 lbs. He had the idea that I could put it on the backside of my bench, which seemed like a great idea. I had already begun thinking...
