Workbench base in progess.... #2: The feet...

08-03-2007 06:36 PM by Mike | 3 comments »

Here is the next installment of the workbench base WIP. The feet are glued and cleaned up and I’ve drilled out excess material in the mortises. I’ve got 3 out of 4 mortises cleaned up and the fit it pretty good. I am going to use draw pegs to draw the joints nice and tight.

Workbench base in progess.... #1: The legs...

08-03-2007 05:42 PM by Mike | 8 comments »

I figured I might as well start a blog on my adventure of building a workbench base. I bought an old pattern makers maple benchtop (2 7/8” x 36” x 69”) from a friend a couple months ago and have had it sitting in my gar….shop. I am now in the process of building a base for this benchtop out of Black Walnut and Spalted Maple. My choice in wood was dictated by the fact that it was already sitting in my gar…shop. The pieces for the legs were planed down to 1R...

Proud of my Buddy #1: First attempt at carving

08-03-2007 12:59 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 29 comments »

Hi all; I always mention my buddy Bruce, and here’s a post dedicated to him, (even though he’s still alive) knock on wood. He has no experience in wood carving, other to set a hinge or something. When we were building the Philadelphia Pie Crust Table, he would work on parts like turning the post, laying out the pattern for the top, as well as cutting it out and hollowing the middle of it with a router. The 1 inch thick board becomes about 5/8 inch in the middle are...

Coat of Arms commission #4: Another fine job completed!!

08-03-2007 12:22 PM by Roger Strautman | 19 comments »

I finally completed the carving. I talked the customer into leaving the carving marks instead of sanding them out. I explained that by leaving the carving unsanded the cut facets would throw the light and your eyes would be drawn to it, also by sanding one wouldn’t know if it was a cast reproduction or hand carved because the surface was to be painted. At any rate pleased customers and client. The cabinet company told me that they were going to get pictures of this carving completed and...

Minneapolis, collapsed bridge #1: I am safe and ok, Thank you for asking

08-03-2007 03:13 AM by Dusty | 16 comments »

I have been touched by the number of people asking and sending me messages wondering if I am alright and offering there prayers and thoughts. The bridge that collapsed its one that I use frequently. I am well as is my friends and family. I am awaiting work on a co-worker and friend who is listed as missing, I remain hopeful that he is not part of the destruction and devastation. I am preparing for the worst as I hope for the best. Please pray for him and his family.

So many great projects

08-02-2007 10:46 PM by TreeBones | 6 comments »

There are so many great projects that are posted each week I haven’t been able to look at and comment on them all. Is it just me that has a “to do list” that is sometimes overwhelming or does anyone else have a hard time making time to look closely at all the great work posted here. I guess that the need to keep the paying jobs moving forward make me feel the need to be in the shop staying busy or be out in the woods (or urban setting, San Fran next week) making lumber. When I d...

Hockey Stick Bedside Table #1: Table Top

08-02-2007 04:20 PM by melski | 6 comments »

I look at a lot of regular wooden furniture and try and use hockey sticks to make it. I was looking at the side tables on the site and decided I could make one for my son’s room I finished the hockey stick table top last night. Final dimensions came out to 15-1/2” x 18” made 100% from hockey sticks, framed with hockey sticks on edge so that a glass pannel can be fit inside to make a flat smooth surface for the top.
