"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #5: "Taste Tested Words"

04-27-2007 03:10 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Taste Tested Words ....tis from this newness of my early rising, where golden droplets of wood chips come spireling, that i am set free of this my bricole’s comprising, where jurisprudence thought to hold me back from live edging…. ....and what is this thing i call ‘live edging’, but the willingness to be willing to explore where those ‘others’ have said; “walk at your own risk and if you do, then understand that we’ve never had any come b...

My daughter started it ...

04-27-2007 02:46 PM by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

Yesterday morning, my daughter hobbled downstairs and begged for a massage to loosen up her back which had taken on a muscle spasm while she prepared for work. She couldn’t bend, twist, or even breathe deeply. Poor girl. I got her moving and off she went to work. A couple hours later as I was picking up some wood that Rick had transferred into the basement via the basement window, my lower back seized up and I was hit with a brief panic about how I was going to make it back up those ...

To Give Or Not To Give, My Woodworking Magazines Away

04-27-2007 08:48 AM by Phil Brown | 13 comments »

The city lights are fading in the distance as I cross the big river, heading back to home port. Its a beautiful evening but I know the rain will come. I think about my workshop and what material I should use to cover the damaged roof with. Shingles or tin. The temporary fix with tarpaper will only hold the rain off for a while. I think about the table refinish job waiting for me tomorrow morning. I glide along the asphalt ribbon to the foot of the mountain I must climb over to get to the ...

Handplane Restoration #11: Stanley #4 Type 3/4?

04-27-2007 07:06 AM by WayneC | 8 comments »

I’ve been having blogging withdrawals and was hoping to get started on my next plane restoration. Tonight, after I was able to free myself from my last meeting of the day, I inspected the #4 I had set aside for restoration. As you can see from the photo’s this plane is pretty rough. This plane was in a box of planes I bought at an antique store for $50. There were a good 15 planes in the box and lots of other Misc tools. The owner had it in the back of the store ...

The Saga Continues #6: The Wonderful World of Jigs - according to Fred

04-27-2007 05:22 AM by fred | 18 comments »

I love making jigs. It is a great sense of confidence and actually takes longer to make them then it does to use them. I like to build things in the shop and making jigs is fun. I want to share some of them with you. Yes, I know there is a forum for jigs, but it has been 36 days since anyone posted in it. My first jig was a finger joint jig. On my recent making of a jewelry box I made a hinge mortising jig. When I was making cabinet for the dining room and the entertainme...

Thorsen Side Table #1: Now you have gone and done it.

04-27-2007 04:51 AM by fred | 13 comments »

Ok, ok, ok. I have seen all your beautiful beautiful tables. So, now I have been shamed that I have not made one, I am officially joining the challenge. I had a slab of beautiful oak that would be just the size for four table legs and another 3/4” piece that would be great for the aprons. Last weekend I cut the legs and planned them to size and marked all the legs to accept a mortise. I cut the aprons to size and made the tenons. I still have not established the design...

Sand Flee and other drum sander kits

04-27-2007 04:48 AM by JonH | 5 comments »

Has anyone seen the sand flee? Its kind of a neat drum sander. They have a video on their website. I have also seen a very similar kit for sale that allows you to build your own drum sander that is identical to the sand flee. It is here. Both sites have nice video, and they both seem to operate the same way with hook and loop paper. They work by using the paper rising up off the drum through centrifugal force. I like this ide...

Thorsen Side Table Challenge #1 #3: Getting closer!

04-27-2007 04:21 AM by Roger Strautman | 28 comments »

I’m now down the home stretch and getting ever closer to the finish line. I will say this I have really enjoyed this little project so far. I have learned some new ways of thinking about how to make designs work together. !! This is a dry run so I still have the glue up to do and finish to apply.
