giving of the ornaments

01-14-2013 04:13 PM by Jim Earl | 2 comments »

this is the 4th year I have made Christmas tree ornaments, and given them to the elementry schools in my area. This year was one of the most gratifications I had ever recieved. The ladies in the School office insisted I go around to esch class and give them out. I got the idea from my younger Grand Kiids. These are about 3” – 6” tall, blanks, and ready for the kids to paint them as they want. each year the kids get more and more greatful for them and write me cards from each...

House number

01-12-2012 06:32 AM by Ahad | 2 comments »

I am just starting to educate myself and learn about woodworking. This house number (can you guess the numbers?) is my first project. It is done with using a coping saw and a sander. I do not have much tools yet. It is not finished yet, I probably need to either stain or paint it before hanging it outside (is it worth it?, please, tell me honestly). Any advises, suggestions, and criticism are welcome.

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #1: Assigning Parts to Boards

11-12-2012 04:31 AM by Steve Erwin | 2 comments »

This is my first real attempt at considering wood grain for every element of a project. Everything I’ve read about “designing with the grain” suggests that putting this effort in before you begin the project will really help bring the end result to that “fine furniture level.” Enough with the quotes. This was a royal pain in the @ss. I thought I ordered 50% extra wood because I’m new at this sorta thing and I wanted to leave plenty of room for flaws, ...

Planner marathon or Saw dust-a-palooza

03-24-2012 12:20 AM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

The last three days I have been doing nothing but running the planner and joiner creating eight 30 gallon bags of saw dust and I still have another days’ worth left. The big question is what to do with all of that saw dust? My father told me to ask the high school baseball coach if he wants it. I guess that they used to put it on the in-field to absorb the water after it rained. I will let you know what I find out because I know that we all have problems getting rid of saw dust. I have 95% of...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #3: Base to Top

05-13-2013 01:17 AM by Douglas | 2 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress in the last few weeks. First I marked up the lumber, orienting grain and appearance for the various parts… Then I proceeded to cut everything to rough size. Laying out the curved pieces for the pedestal and cutting them to size… I then moved on to the feet… And starting fitting the pedestal and feet together… Everything went pretty well, and the experience of making the pine mo...

Seattle Bungalow Fair

09-05-2010 12:12 AM by Crushgroovin | 2 comments »

I just signed up to volunteer at the Seattle Bungalow Fair later this month. I have never been to the fair but it looks great. Has anyone been or planning to go? How is the overall atmosphere? Is it a worthwhile “fair” to attend for a recent Greene & Greene/Arts & Crafts fanatic? Love to meet up with some other LJ’s who will be in attendance. -Chris May Your Cuts be Tear Out Free!!!

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...
