Wedding Clock #2: Wedding Clock, The Start & Story

04-22-2011 09:39 PM by kenn | 6 comments »

Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...

DESIGNS FOR WOOD STRIPS #1: The Concept

04-14-2011 09:47 AM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It is very common for everyone to have wood scraps of different sizes and just turned out to become a boards cutting conventional to endgrain. I noticed that if there are angles involved in joining a wood with parallel grains will be stronger. The warping movement is not visible and the strength of gluing is increased. Unlike the crossboard gluing (or straight gluing…) crack will be present in some cases. Here are series of design that are so simple to make and gluing is also very s...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 5 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Rustic Inspired Pen

04-01-2011 04:53 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 10 comments »

The Hobo Rustic Pen. Walking in the woods one day while searching for rodent droppings, I came across a twig that really caught my eye – the left one. Needless to say I had to have it and make something really useful and pathetic to grace my collection of other odd ball projects. I picked it up and ran to my wittle hut (nature was calling) and was relieved holding the twig between my teeth. Well I thought I might make a note of where I found it, the weather conditions, time of day and h...

Our Home

03-29-2011 11:13 PM by reedwood | 13 comments »

My wife, Lynn and I have lived here since 1990. We looked for six months before we found this little diamond in the rough. It wasn’t much to look at back then, but as a carpenter, I saw huge potential. The Cape Cod style house was built in 1957, the year I was born and had good strong bones. That’s Lynn with Sammy – our first dog. He was so smart. Look how cute Lynn is! The ½ acre double lot was in the middle of a small suburb by a lake. It was covered with...

Don’t be unhappy in your work.’” ...James Krenov (1920-2009) In this woodworking article we study the making of a custom bathroom wall cabinet of beautifully grained black walnut with raised panel doors.

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

03-26-2011 01:30 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers
