MsDebbieP's Company Tours #8: Canadian Woodworking Magazine - Part II

09-08-2007 01:18 AM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

Last month, I visited the home of Paul & Linda Fulcher, publishers of Canadian Woodworking Magazine. (See the first part of this series). This week, I was able to ask some questions for the MsDebbieP’s Company interviews series. THE HISTORYThe Canadian Woodworking Magazine was first published in 1995 and was black and white print on newsprint pages. The magazine was, then, a “freebie” given out at wood show, focusing on the province of Ontario for the most part. Paul and Linda...

Another Sandy Salvage

09-07-2007 08:53 PM by RobS | 14 comments »

After a seemingly successful beach driftwood project earlier this summer, I knew that the next trip to the beach would include a hunt for more treasures, perhaps even ones of the slightly buried variety. Again the family returned to Sargent and again the Texas tides did not disappoint. My wife actually went to the beach with the kiddos a day prior to me and upon seeing her later that evening; she said “I saw a piece of wood you may be interested in.” “Cool!” I said, thinking that I have ...

Terpsichore Foliage Waunderings ….finding the lightness of your weight, i was stopped in my tracks by the rightness of your step, as you swung to and fro with elliptical ecstasy, till after being inspired once again i gave thanks…. I came across this one last evening out in the woods, practicing the art of dance and was immediately captivated by the beauty of what was going on…. ....some have often wondered as to where I get my inspiration from and to those ...

Front rail is tenon and mortise on both ends Side rails – fronts tenon and mortise. backs are doweled Back rail – dowels on both ends Basically I put it back together with the joinery that was used originally – theres enough room to pin the tenons from the inside – I may do that yet Using laquer thinner and an x-acto knife to scrape, the carvings cleaned up nicely

Woodworking 101: My Class at Palomar College #3: Project Selection

09-07-2007 12:13 AM by WayneS | 9 comments »

Yesterday was light in terms of new information presented, but was a very important day. We finally selected the plans for our projects from a selection of four very nice clock designs. My choice …a Shaker style. I decided to go with the Shaker style clock for two reasons. I wanted something without a lot of detail that will allow me to focus more on the process, and for the simple fact that I like furniture with clean lines. Besides selecting our project plans we covered in detail h...

Kody's Bed #3: Head/Foot board

09-07-2007 12:10 AM by Randy Klein | 3 comments »

Here’s the glued up head board. The foot board looks the same, just shorter. The slats are cherry. Each slat is dominoed to the rails. This is another deviation from the plans. They called for a dado in the rails, slats slipped in the dado, and spacers to fill the gap. But, I’m using the Domino for all joints, so I changed it up. But to accommodate for the tenons thickness, I had to increase the slats thickness and the rails as well. They’ve been glued up for...

Kody's Bed #2: Legs

09-06-2007 11:49 PM by Randy Klein | 6 comments »

Here is a dry fit of the legs. It is a deviation from the plans, which called for laminating 2 boards together. But it would leave an unsightly glue line. However, I did learn, later, of another method that would not be so bad. I mocked up with some scraps a mitered approach, but it was tricky and never really closed up. I thought of doing a lock miter joint, but just didn’t want to invest in a bit that I’ve heard has a finicky setup. This method only involves ...
