Seattle Bungalow Fair

1418 days ago 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!!!

SPIRAL DESIGN #2: The construction...Selection of wood

1422 days ago by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...

1424 days ago by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

1425 days ago by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

Three weeks ago I started building a bed for my son the all star werestler. About once every 2 years for the past 6 years, John and his freind Desmond will manage to kill a matress-box spring- and frame. I will not picture the carniage…I figured to build one they can’t break (easily anyway), thinking it wasn’t that much wood (wrong), and it would only take 2 weekends (wrong). Their are 2 stars to this project the first being my mortise jig. The jig is a simpl...

How to Create Dentil Mouldings on the Dado Sled

1433 days ago by Bob Simmons | 11 comments »

Dentil mouldings are a distinctive member of the classical moulding family. Often you will see a distinguished building and then when you look up to view the architectural moulding of the cornice you will very often see dentils as one of the cornice members. The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...
