"Rustic" by RusticWoodArt #1: "Getting Out of a Rut and Into Rustic"

03-11-2007 04:20 PM by frank | 3 comments »

”Getting Out of a Rut and Into Rustic” ....and so i traveled the way of going the path of my heart, where many had stopped to stutter at having no art, these were the more then many who walked the walled isles of you-know-mart, having given up their life of soul for the is-stilled creature comforts of designer defined dead art…. Going rustic was an answer to the prayer of my heart, where I never need have no-more second thought to any who would come and say, why don...

Birthday #2: Update

03-11-2007 01:56 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

This has been one of my best birthdays ever!! First of all it was as if it was 3 days long!! And I have received some great gifts and lots of well-wishes from family and friends! (Thank you LumberJock-ers for all your kind thoughts). Then last night we had family night and did a “video chat” with my son and his family. We had chinese food and played monopoly. That is so much fun. It’s just like they are sitting right here in our dining room. Anyway, this morning I discovere...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #1: Starting with 4/4 cherry

03-11-2007 09:24 AM by David | 9 comments »

Thought I would share a bit of my day. My wife and kids are out of town for a short retreat and I had two days off work. Great combination for a woodworker! As I mentioned before, I have a very small garage based shop. I share the space with my family and have to set it up for each project. No complaints as I am always happy to be working with my hands! I am very grateful to all the members of Lumberjocks – what a great community! I learn so much from all of you. It is hard to keep u...

Kitchens #1: Nose to the grind stone.

03-11-2007 08:20 AM by dennis mitchell | 7 comments »

I’ve been out pumping out some cabinetry. I was trained in a custom shop so the kitchens I’ve built tended to be mid to high end work. When I first opened my shop I got a large cabinet job about $40,000.00 without counter tops for a 3000 sq. ft home. Did some pretty fancy stuff. Then shifted to install work and have done that for the last 7 years. So I never really set out to do an inexpensive kitchen. The fellow I’m installing for now wants me to try to build a semi-custom ...

'This Old Crack House' #17: Do you have a flash light?

03-11-2007 04:28 AM by Dusty | 8 comments »

I had no idea where to begin. I was still in a state of disbelief. I was trying not to judge, but I admit it was hard. The overwhelming question in my mind was how anyone could live like this. I also wondered how it could get this bad. I decided that answers to these questions weren’t going to help me right now with the problem at hand. The sink was plugged. It was hard to only focus on this. The overwhelming conditions surrounding me made this next to impossible to do. I simply had...

Day 6

03-11-2007 04:17 AM by DaveC | 3 comments »

Well I finished the bow today. I put on 4 coats of wipe on polyurethane (over the last few days of course) Then wrapped the handle. I was going to do a leather wrap handle (and I still might later) but I had some “leather like” material made for wrapping around tennis racket handles. I used that instead. It works really well. This particular piece of wood has some light colored “speckling” in it. I think it adds character. I need to practice my penman ship. : )...

This is my hand in the air to ask a question.

I was looking at doing some blogging. Do I have to post my photos to an online site to be able to install them into the blog? Or can I pull them out of my iphoto application on my mac?

Lilac Lamp #3: Tripod all in a twist

03-11-2007 12:19 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Having successfully burned out my Dremel, I went for the cordless drill as well as my chisels. Judging by the amount of wood i still had to go through, I’d have likely killed another dremel in the process! I guess they are made for lots of different jobs, not so much hogging off wood for extended periods. I’ll definately be looking into those carving tools Dick suggested. Didn’t take too long to get all three legs liberated from each other, was tricky with the “can...
