"Visual Imagination" --by RusticWoodArt

08-02-2007 01:13 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Visual Imagination ….so the lighting and thunder clap their hands, a leaf falls to the ground sending forth vibrations of welcome, an ant crawls out from under that leaf in the light of day, and i stare just knowing that all ‘just is’ as should be…. —-from my place of silence in these wooded fields of dreams, comes an-other much like my-self seeking repose, after all what use is body or soul confined to theological debate, when by the spirit one learns to d...

Circle sanding jig.

08-02-2007 05:36 AM by Karson | 4 comments »

Today at the Mason – Dixon Woodworking Toy workshop I was making the plastic windows for our Train bank. We usually make 105 or so of each item. and 1000 – 1200 total that are distributed at Christmas time. Here is the toy bank. The plastic window is inserted in a whole drilled into the sides of the bank and is held with screws. The window is the only way to take the money out of the bank. First we cut the Plexiglas circle with the center bit removed from the hole saw. a ...

A hinge to far... errrr, to small!

08-02-2007 04:40 AM by Buckskin | 15 comments »

I am looking for some extremely small butt hinges. What I am looking for will need to attach to stock no more than 1/8”or approximately 3 mm. This is for a very small scale project. I checked but the smallest of theirs I could find was still to big. Do any of my fellow Lumberjocks have a suggestion as to where I may find them?

Garden Bench and Table Construction #2

08-02-2007 03:37 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 1 comment »

I forgot to mention on the first part of this blog that I don’t have any pictures of construction on the bench. This was due partly to my camera crapping out on me and I really didn’t know this thing would turn out as good as it did. After completing the bench and seeing the results, I figured it would be a good idea to take pictures when I decided to do the table and share them with ya’ll. So, I bought a new camera. With that said I continue:Here’s what I used for a &...

Stickley "Done Darkly" #1: The process and how it came to being...

08-01-2007 10:28 PM by schroeder | 7 comments »

Stickley Done “Darkly” This is a table we are building for friends, (based in part on a design by Rex Alexander). The table above is a similar one I built out of White Oak. We have this group of friends who have a “retreat” (basically a hunting lodge built by men – for men). Kinda looks like the interior was done by Cabela’s, clearly the wives had no influence. It has a shower on the deck, six bedrooms lined up in a row, tile floors throughout, leather chairs and couch… rustic look thro...

Learning Curve #15: 6 months in and counting

08-01-2007 08:05 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

I am now in the second half of my first year of woodworking and I thought that perhaps it was a good time to look back and assess my progress as well as set some goals for the future. The latest challenge, the Summer Awards, was an eye-opener for me, as I realized that my skills had indeed reached a new level. It was only this past January that I decided that it was time to try my hand at the hobby that had intrigued me for years but I had no experience with. Although i didn’t (an...

Mortise and Tenon, Need Help!!!

08-01-2007 07:30 PM by lance | 12 comments »

Hi Everyone, Mortise and Tenon Questions I’m a neophyte and my first major project, everything is relative, is to make two sets of raised panel bifold doors for our bedroom closets. The doors will be made out of poplar. Each of the bifold panels will be about 80” by 17.25”. The stiles and rails will be 1” thick and the raised panels will be 3/4” thick. As I’m about to start putting the tools to the wood I’m becoming concerned with my intension...
