09-19-2014 04:36 PM by Obed | 2 comments »

I recently responded to a friends post about her top 10 books. As in most cases they were recent authors and texts published within the last 20 years or so. So I asked her about what I call, “Old Dead Guys” and listed off a few of them.AthenasiusAugustineJohn CalvinJonathan EdwardsJohn BunyanJohn OwenJoseph CarylBB WarfieldBlaise PascalAlbert BarnesMartin Lloyd-JonesJohn GillCharles Spurgeonand a few others that I could remember in the moment, leaving many aside due to severe brai...

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

08-31-2014 01:54 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

Shades of Grain #2: The Secrecy is Killing Me!

12-05-2012 03:38 AM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well here it is, blog number 2 on Shades of Grain and I am already dying to show off a gift I made for my wife… The problem is, it is a Christmas gift, and she has been awfully sneaky as well as trying to guess what it is I might have made for her. The issue is that my posts end up on Facebook and she travails that site as well… so I am trapped for another 21 days, and its my own doing. It is complete, I can say that much and it came out like a dream! I do hav...

Woodworking Technologies: A Programmer's Perspective #1: Technology and Wood: My first thoughts of a new horizon.

06-21-2012 07:26 AM by pmcwood | 0 comments »

Our journey starts nearly nine months ago when I first started working for a woodworking tool dealership.Before that time I only had a small amount of experience in the construction industry dealing with nail guns, band saws, circular saws and the like. Soon the sheer spectrum of what all woodworking as a whole meant became apparent and remarkably interesting. Suddenly there was a plethora of amazing technologies not yet exposed to me in the environment of a sterile server room. An opened ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #32: Selling on the ETSY WEB Site

06-26-2012 02:20 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

Stickley High Chest #1: Dry fit

01-17-2011 10:28 PM by Greg | 7 comments »

This is my first furniture grade woodworking project that I have done in about 10 years. The chest is dry fit together in my basement. I brought all the pieces in from my cold, northern ohio, un-insulated barn. I created my own plans based off of pictures in another post on LJ and from a picture of a similar chest on the L&JG Stickley website. It is made from Walnut that my father-in-law gave me. He figured that it had been drying in his barn for longer than I’ve been alive. ...
