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 ...

The 2nd show in the series for floating shelves. I hope that everyone enjoys it, and I continue my struggles with this darn illness. Not sure of this is how to do this or not.

Cheap Kitchen Table #2: Design for Legs of Cheap Kitchen Table

09-18-2011 04:24 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

My kitchen table is cheap, really cheap. But it looks decent. So far it’s a plastic table with a plywood top. I want to have legs so that the table can slide under the kitchen bench. Here’s the new leg design. The legs should cost less than $5 since they are only two of 2×4s. Joinery connecting the legs will be through tenons and the top will be joined to the legs with Kreg pocket screws.

My Summer Vacation at Marc Adams' School #1: I'm Heading Out For Indiana Tomorrow!

07-27-2013 08:35 AM by Tim Roman | 2 comments »

I’ll be hopping in the car and driving out to beautiful Franklin, Indiana tomorrow (Sunday) morning to attend two classes next week at Marc Adams’ School of Woodworking. First, I am in a 6-day long project class in which I will be building an arts-and-crafts style entry table. Then I will take a one-day class on tool sharpening skills. Both classes will be taught by Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking Magazine. I’m excited about the opportunity to add to my skills and make...

One of a kind, most unique tree on earth, Fish Slab cedar

08-22-2015 11:39 PM by EdgeGrainOnly | 2 comments »

I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

01-18-2011 11:40 PM by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...

Searching for time in the shop

04-21-2012 08:07 PM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...
