Frustrations with DIY Renovations

01-31-2007 05:57 PM by Ethan Sincox | 8 comments »

My wife and I are house shopping. We’re trying to find a new old house (an old house that is new to us) that still has its original character and charm, but has some of the basic upgrades (central air, for example) completed. Occasionally we actually do run across an early 20th Century home (Prairie style or Arts and Crafts style or Victorian) that isn’t dilapidated and hasn’t lost its charm. But as we walk through these houses, all I can think to myself is how poorly some of the renovat...

How to avoid tiny conflicts

01-31-2007 03:33 PM by Martin Sojka | 7 comments »

I’d like to react to tiny issue that happened between Dick and Cabinetman yesterday. (Now I see that you explained it together here. I’m happy for that – thanks!) Coffee Lounge is here for off-topic discussions – as the description states ”Need a break from all the standing and wood dust?”. So there is nothing wrong with posting something that is not 100% woodworking related there. Just don’t overdo it, please ;) On the other hand, it’d be...

"Perambulation of Visionary Imagination" --by RusticWoodArt

01-31-2007 02:48 PM by frank | 4 comments »

”Perambulation of Visionary Imagination” i sit here in this mind of mine workspace, i am re-minded again of all those other projects that have passed my way, as they were hand played to the sound of having a perambulation of visionary imagination, which once found is then slowed down and brought into this dimension of earth bound time…. —-were i to sit in the arena of eternity, i would have no knowledge of the things that make my heart swell, while never m...

... than down in my basement, with a 4” razor scraper, removing GOK what adhesive from the concrete floor in preparation for Thursday, when the installer comes to put new linoleum down. When I bought my condo, a full bath was already built in the basement, but it had cheap shag carpet, a toilet a raccoon wouldn’t wash his food in, an old partially-rotting cabinet, and a $5 faucet. I pulled up the toilet to find that the flange had snapped off long ago and water had leaked for ...

Corner Joint

01-30-2007 05:57 PM by Philip Edwards | 12 comments »

Hi Folks I’ve been tinkering with the design of my new table idea again. The corner joint in articular. Originally I was going to mitre the corners and use loose tenons or a double row of biscuits. But as I machine up the raw timber needed for the design I can tell it is going to be a physically heavy piece. The old brain cells started to twitch…...... So I knocked up a test joint last night. What do you think? It goes together well, has a mitred corner but lots of glue a...

Why one color on panels?

01-30-2007 05:48 PM by Cathy Krumrei | 7 comments »

I have been thinking of ways to finish off my panel. I think I have chosen to go with oil paint mixed with linseed oil to get the right color then thin it out with thinnner. The leaves I want fall colors to enhance the theme of the deers fighting. (this is all in my head idea) Then I want the background like a fog. I’m a hunter so kind of trying to get a hunters point of view going. I have been looking at other wall carvings and all I see is one color stain. I do have a problem when it ...

perfection vs realistic.... the constant struggle in woodworking for me

01-30-2007 04:39 AM by Dusty | 10 comments »

When I first started woodworking –It was very hard for me to finish any projects because I was such a perfectionist. Nothing was ever good enough. This lead too many hours of frustration and self doubts. I had to find a balance between being fussy or putting out a quality project and accepting that enough was enough. One of the hardest lessons I am still learning is “leave well enough alone” That, knows when to stop- so I don’t go over board and ruin something. When I took on my remodeling pr...
