Streamline Desk #1: Initial Design

07-16-2007 11:56 PM by Damian Penney | 16 comments »

So my next project is going to be a desk that I’m currently designing in Sketchup. I’m a big fan of the Art Deco & Streamline Moderne style so I’m trying to incorporate aspects of that aesthetic in my design. This is the first pass.. I’m going to try and sneak a small form factor PC (perhaps a Mac Mini running XP) into the center drawer of the hutch, and have no visible wires. I’m also going to use elements of my entry bench in the design i.e the...

Coat of Arms commission #3: 21 hours of carving.

07-16-2007 12:46 PM by Roger Strautman | 17 comments »

I never gave it the thought of showing you what they gave me to carve from. This picture was as much as I could get. A lot of my time this weekend was spent on getting the leaves shaped and the backs cut out to give them the depth. I also started to sand off a few areas.

Projects #4: John White FWW Workbench - Planning and Milling

07-16-2007 07:25 AM by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...

Morris inspired chair #12: Finished finally! - Time for a nap!

07-16-2007 05:32 AM by Bob Babcock | 12 comments »

Ok…..Time to add this to the projects page. She’s finally done, no more sanding (I don’t think I have any fingerprints left), the finish actually looks good, and the cushions came out great. This was a looooonnnng project. Thanks to all my fellow LJ’s out there for your encouragement Suzanne still has a different material to make the final cushion covers with. We bought two because the material was ridiculously cheap. She made the first one out of the material...

The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining #9: Pictures from inside the New Shop

07-16-2007 04:01 AM by Sawhorse | 11 comments »

Well, the rains has cost me about 2 weeks work on the new house and the shop, however I have been able to move my machines, workbenches and some tools into the shop. Here are some pics from inside the shop. This pic shows some of the cabinets I installed, I got them at an auction, brand new still in the boxes for about 1/2 of what they would cost retail This pic show the left corner of the shop looking in from the sliding door, notice the 24” drum fan I hung in the corner,...

'This Old Crack House' #47: The Addiition part two...Build it and I am moving........

07-16-2007 02:59 AM by Dusty | 8 comments »

Part Two…. The overall building experience of the addition was rather uneventful. Common problems like material shortages, delays in delivery, and the routine problems with such things and poor quality lumber are just a given for any project. Certainly the missing special-order floor truss and gable end rafter was frustrating but predictable in the course of any construction project. The more building and remodeling I do, the more I expect and prepare for these events. Simply...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #2: Next (baby) steps

07-16-2007 02:01 AM by Dorje | 10 comments »

I picked the wood I’m going to use for this project; I’m going to go with Lyptus. I should get down to the lumber store sometime this week… Also, I made some drawings of the top, side, and end. Drawings really are limiting! I’d like to draw this in sketchup, but can barely remember how to draw a rectangle. Actually I can draw a rectangle, but don’t even know how to type in the dimensions I want rather than have to drag the exact distance!!! (Bob Babc...
