My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1679: Details, Details

01-12-2016 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I love my job. There is always something new and exciting to work on, and it seems that I never run short of ideas for patterns for scrolling, painting and other types of creating. I think that the variety of mediums that I create in help keep me creative and always thinking of new things to make. It keeps me fresh. After the past week or so of cutting over 50 dozen simple shaped ornaments, I was ready for something a little different. With the Valentine's Day holiday quickly approac...

Butterfly Dining Table #8: Designing and Installing the Butterfly Leaf

12-31-2015 04:55 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This time I mark the layout for how the butterfly hinge is going to be installed. Then I use a steel rod and bushings to create the hinge mechanism. This all gets installed into the support system of the table so the leaf will store under the table when it is not in use. I also show how I add the splines to the edges, and a cool way to hide the end grain of the splines. Then I level the table halves, then the leaf to the rest of the top. Almost complete! As always, I welcome your questio...

Rough turning bowls

12-22-2015 10:20 AM by blue77 | 4 comments »

Over the past summer and fall I have amassed a fare quantity of green wood. Now just about all I do is rough out bowls. I am still a novice at all this but so far it has been going well.I start by measuring the lumber to see what kind of a bowl (or box) I can make. Then I draw the shape with a compass and mark the middle of the bowl. Now at this stage most people would usually go to the band saw and cut out the bowl blank. Well my 9” band saw will only cut to a depth of 3 ¾” so that’s o...

Milling and storing.

12-15-2015 09:41 AM by blue77 | 2 comments »

I have been turning for a short time, about a year and some change. In this time I have learned that my neighbors are my best suppliers of wood. When they cut down trees I come a running. This last summer I got some big Ash logs and lots of Maple. Now that it is “winterish” I’m trying to turn all this lumber into bowls and boxes. I start by getting the wood. Usually I will put it in the back of my SUV if it’s just one or two little logs but if it a bunch of wood I have a 4×8 trailer. Th...

Cedar Strip Canoe Build #1: The Wood

12-12-2015 11:25 PM by farmerdude | 14 comments »

I am building a canoe for my sister’s boyfriend. He wants a sixteen footer. I am going with the Wabnaki model from Gil Gilpatrick’s book. I’ve never done a blog before and am not real good with computers, but I will do my best. I’m going to start off with just a few things and if I see there is interest in this blog I will continue until it is done. So if anyone out there is interested just post and let me know and I will continue. So, first pic. is the white cedar I b...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...

Shop stuff #17: A trio of photo boxes

11-30-2015 01:20 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I did some experimenting on cutting the ends of box joints flush with the sides. The last box I just used the Random Orbital sander to get them flush. I finally figured it out after a while and got to the point where I could slice the tops off the box. https://youtu.be/IM1liBrAsKw

Shop stuff #16: Making some ash inserts

11-29-2015 04:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I finally got around to putting some more woodworking footage together. I am enjoying using some hand tools, but the power tools are nice too. I am making a series of 3 boxes, sized to fit photos, for presents. These are preparing the top and bottom panels for them. I do lots of my initial work with hand tools. Breaking down the rough sizes and getting a clean edge to go up against the fence of the table saw. Maybe some day I will get good enough to do it all by hand, but flattening a w...

Lego Table #8: Making Drawers...or one drawer.

11-22-2015 08:06 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Had a blast up at the Great Wolf Lodge this past weekend—as proof of our never-say-die, got to keep playing as long as we can attitude at the indoor water park hotel/resort, I offer a picture of my youngest the next day passed out in my recliner. This is as quiet as he as ever been outside of his crib in his entire life! The kids are, needless to say, pooped. I am too, but the clock is ticking—we’re well into November now and Christmas is looming on the horizon. I have plenty of time t...
