09-06-2012 03:15 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

This week I decided to make a two fer project..lol… It is a 2 sided game and message board. On one side you have a checkerboard and on the other side a chalkboard. It is meant to hang on the wall so the checkerboard and checkers are magnetic. The main frame is Maple, the checkerboard is oak and aspen with the boarder being mahogany. The chalkboard is birch plywood primed and 3 coats of chalkboard paint. And it is finished with Tung oil Varnish

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #169: Back Up and Moving

11-19-2010 02:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Although I took it quite slow yesterday, I did accomplish a few things. I planned on taking a nap in the afternoon, but I was involved in other things and I forgot. That was a good sign. I finished working on the drawings for the gingerbread candle try. The first tray I did was all gingerbread men. But then I looked at it and thought that he looked lonely so I altered the patterns to make him a girlfriend. I decided to include both designs in the pattern as some people have daughters...

Just for Fun #3: Checker Board Coffee Table

05-16-2013 02:11 AM by ScottShaeffer | 2 comments »

I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...

How-To Make Log Furniture #7: Make a Chuppah How-To

06-19-2013 02:21 PM by ScottShaeffer | 0 comments »

I was asked to build a Chuppah for a wedding using small diameter, nearly green aspen logs. It was a challenge finding the logs but building it sure was fun! How do you incorporate logs into a wedding? It seems to be a growing trend – this is the third wedding project I’ve worked on. Please share things you’ve made for weddings by posting pictures below! If it’s a log item, I’ll share it on my FaceBook page with a back link to your page!

[Dovetail Box] Adding chip carving...

03-13-2013 12:07 AM by RaggedKerf | 5 comments »

Flush with my modest progress in the last post, I decided to jazz up the little box some before attaching the bottom (which I have already cut and have waiting for installation). I drew out some lines and squares on the front of the box and made a nice little border on the top and bottom. Here’s the first shot, after I had already completed the top border. It went surprisingly fast. Took about 10 minutes to lay it out and 5 minutes to carve it. Then I drew the pattern for the bot...

A Hanging Wall

05-29-2010 01:34 AM by Troy | 11 comments »

The Commission  About the beginning of May, I met with a friend of a friend at their new photography studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Heath and his wife Audrey worked the last several months to establish their business in a new location and they had a need for some specialized woodworking. Between the two, it’s obvious that they have a complimentary advanced sense of design and spacial relation. On entering the new studio and office of Focus Unbound Photography, it’s immediately apparen...

Lamp Mounting Plates Day 2: Progress

11-27-2012 12:37 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Got a hold of some free time today during naps and continued work on Jim’s aspen mounting plates for his new garage lights. I took the two blanks of wood that I had sketched the design on from last time—-here’s the picture from the last entry to refresh your memory (Thanksgiving and vacation right before that really but a damper on my shop time): As you can see I had cut the first plate with the coping saw (that took a while and wasn’t that easy to control, but I...
