"Artistic Expression" --by RusticWoodArt

Artistic Expression of choice they came and asked, till in my thinking i thought to add, “give me an outer of corky dead fibrous cells, so i can be inner living with sapwood and heartwood….” —-ah yes, it doesn’t get much better than this, since from my before beginning, i have progressed in size to that of highly aged wood…. —-and so the many came as they sought me, fought over me in the playing fields of forest god’s, where i ...

Skee's Shop

05-17-2007 04:38 AM by Skee | 17 comments »

I guess I should have cleaned up the shop before the tour, but I was so excited after borrowing the camcorder that I just had to jump on it and start using up digital tape as quickly as I could. Thank you TOM!!!!! What did I have wrong?

Thorsen Table contest #5: quirks and veneer

05-17-2007 03:36 AM by scottb | 9 comments »

Had a few unexpected hours to myself this afternoon – turned that into some useful shop time – and got one step closer to having that old door look a little more like a table! I put the big glueup block o’ leg onto the tablesaw and attempted to cut them down nice and square – with as thin a veneer left as possible. The seperating was easy, the fine tuning also went better than expected, just a slow and careful process. I should have made 5 legs, as I messed u...

Here’s a quick look at my Woodshop. I had to use a crappy old “tape” video camera, but just had to get into the WoodWhisperer/Lumberjacks “Shop Video Challenge”!

Presents Arrive!!! & More Detail

05-17-2007 01:39 AM by RickInTexas | 8 comments »

My birthday presents finally arrived today. Picked out the parallel clamp set from JET, includes 2-24” and 2-40” clamps with the 90 deg. support blocks. One thing I was surprised with was the weight of them, especially the 40”-ers. Also surprised by the added support foot that is adjustable outside of the two clamp faces. Now that the 11 hour days are hopefully done at work, I can get back and finish up the crib that goes with the changing table. I saw that “lclashl...

Favorite Old Tool(s) #4: Molding Tools

05-16-2007 04:50 PM by Paul | 5 comments »

I can’t seem to master embedding the pictures in the blog so I guess we’ll stay with the link. 1. Four Wooden Molding Planes – The far left is a center bead plane and the remaining are three different sizes of side bead planes. 2. I’m not a purist, but I do like to do something by hand in every project. It may only be one mortise and tenon of several, but perhaps one. Here’s a close up pciture of a side bead detail I put on the face frame of an ash ...

Shop progress #2: Another day

05-16-2007 04:49 PM by Mario | 4 comments »

Thank you all for the comments. I never really thought about humidity levels…Now I will. I got a Grizzly catalog in the mail last night and was drooling over the 8” Jointers. I have a HF jointer that my wife bought for me. I never made it out to the shop last night as I ended up tripple booking myself. I had two things going on at church and a concert at the school. Life sometimes interupts my woodworking interuption of seems like work interupts more than ever. I sit at...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #3: Leigh FMT Jig - Part 2

05-16-2007 09:38 AM by David | 8 comments »

Well, this is the second of the LEIGH FMT Jig videos. Again please excuse the ameteur quality. This is just my way of sharing a fun day in the shop while pushing my digital envelope, so to say. Things have been a bit hectic here so it was good to get some dedicated time in the shop. Many thanks to my wife for allowing this indulgance! I thought a video post would be fun to explore since I have learned so much from my fellow woodworkers via digital imagery. I am not sure what I am going to ...
