I think it's spring!

04-20-2007 07:47 PM by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

For the second day in a row the sun has shone brightly in our area and a warm spring breeze has lightly moved through the air. Today, as I roamed the property picking up pieces of this and that, I ended up on one of the benches that Rick and I built last year. The bench is nestled between two lilac bushes and last year I created an arc of lilacs that will eventually surround the little retreat bench and separate it from the neighbour’s property/garage. My little moment of soli...

My Friend The Mountain

04-20-2007 06:51 PM by Phil Brown | 2 comments »

I said hello to my friend the mountain yesterday. Hadn’t seen my friend in a long time. As you can tell from my posts, trucking was and still is in my blood, competing with so many other passions, woodwork, art, music and writing. Some days I feel like I’m going to burst, keeping up with all these things. How does one make all of this work together in harmony. Well, I did drop the trucking, for almost six years. I’ll keep on trying to create outlets for the rest of these...

"PROVIDERE" --by RusticWoodArt #5: Providere, a Work In Process

04-20-2007 01:59 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Providere, a Work In Process Well I finished roughing out a shape of the last of four legs last night with the drawknife, and I thought I would post a picture of where the ‘in the process’ of Providere now stands. 1) Cherry backsplash, needs to enter into it’s hand sanding phase, starting with #120 grit….and ending with some slurpies…. 2) Table top, needs to be worked some more on sides with a timber slick to get a better trueness…. 3) End board...

Go Sharks

04-20-2007 06:26 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Between a crazy work schedule and the Hocky Play offs my workshop time is suffering. Any other NHL fans out there? Any favorites for the Stanley cup? I’m hoping to spend some serious time at the Woodworking Show this weekend. It is here in Sacramento starting tomorrow. Hopefully this will give me some additional inspiration to get back to work on my projects and I will not spend too much money on gadgets. I’ve purchased a couple of items that have not been used since they ...

The Saga Continues #5: My First Jewelry Box

04-20-2007 03:08 AM by fred | 11 comments »

About six weeks ago I received a catalog in the mail with a jewelry box on the cover. My wife saw the cover and asked me to make it. I guess I should not leave catalogs lying around and should take them to the shop. However, if I leave the catalogs in the house she will find something for me to make. Yes! A new project is born. I ordered the box side and foot router bits together with the plans and hardware. When I saw the size of the box side bit at 2 ¾” tall and 1 ½” wi...

My Walnut board was 6 3/4” wide, but it was dished a little, so I ripped it in half, & joined it in 4 sections for the top, I also glued some Ash to the edges. The Top clamped up.Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop. This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps

Thorsen House #2: The details are a little rustic

04-19-2007 09:37 PM by dennis mitchell | 17 comments »

The photos aren’t the best, but here is my update on the Greene and Greene table. Yes I went rustic. I got thinking (think…think…think) and I became interested in translating some of the details to a rustic style. I have a very old cheap band saw so I’ve not done much re-sawing. I’ve never done a breadboard end. Notice I book matched the top. I’m using pine from an old corral and a few pine branches from my firewood pile for the legs. The pegs are well drie...

'This Old Crack House' #35: "This wasn’t Martha Stewart’s Kitchen"…

04-19-2007 08:32 PM by Dusty | 15 comments »

The plan was to gut out all the areas of the house that were inhabitable and where repairing would not be feasible. The first priority was to find the smell in the basement. The source of the smell was the plumbing pipes located beneath the concrete. All the plumbing had been removed and reinstalled. The next step was to mix cement and repair the large sections of the floor that had been removed to gain access to the plumbing. I delayed repairing the basement floor for two re...

'This Old Crack House' #34: Call 911 my ego had been mortally wounded…Plumbing 101 for dummies...

04-19-2007 05:22 PM by Dusty | 8 comments »

I was overwhelmed and things felt pretty hopeless at that point. Although making some small progress, my friend, David, wasn’t doing well. He was still in a coma. I had only one choice. Because I couldn’t afford to hire a plumber, I had to do it myself. The city plumbing inspector, who red tagged and failed my rough-in inspection, offered to help me. He said he couldn’t design the job for me but could and would help me with what I had to do. That also included showing me what would ...

My First Rocking Horse #4: Delivery

04-19-2007 04:07 PM by Dan Lyke | 6 comments »

When my nephew was asked if he wanted to sit on the horse, he promptly sat down on the deck below the horse. He was reluctant to be all the way up high on it. Eventually, my sweety coaxed him up on the back. It’ll be too big for him for a few years, though. So we had a good drive up the coast, a good drive back down, some cool adventures along the way, got home, and then life got interesting. I don’t know how much woodworking time I’ll have over the next year, I j...
