Tree IDs #4: Silver Birch (Betula pendula)

02-26-2009 05:01 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I believe this will be the last of the trees I post in this ongoing series that I’ve already identified. I think it’ll be more fun for me and anyone else following along to go on the hunt for a tree’s name and species along with me than for me to simply post an encyclopedic entry of each tree. I didn’t take proper pics of the 2 or 3 others I’ve identified either, so they’re not worth posting yet anyway. I do intend to follow up identifications with more abo...

Hand Tools Cabinet #1: It all begins with a box

02-06-2009 11:12 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I saw this design in a finewoodworking article, and really liked the design, and functionality of the piece, and decided to follow along. I did not use FWW plans, but created my own to fit my space, and needs, while keeping the general design, and concept of the FWW piece in mind. (I made mine, smaller, and shallower then FWW cabinet, also the interior is much different). This is basically a fingerjointed box that the doors are cut off from (to match grain) and hinged on a piano hinge. pre...

Bench #1: Bench for Christmas Gift

12-29-2008 06:46 PM by clasher | 0 comments »

Here are some shots of the imitation Pottery Barn bench I constructed for my wife for Christmas. I wasn’t satisfied with the finish so I still have some work to do. Luckily my wife is looking forward to helping me (re)finish it. I think I want to add some faux wear to this front corner before I re-stain.

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #30: Out in The Woods

09-14-2008 05:51 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Out in The Woods So for this short story, lets set the milieu a bit, turn up some volume and think a bit about what it means to be ‘out in the woods’.... ”Can’t tell the bad from the good, I’m out in the wood then I’m lost in the wood…. Can’t tell the bad from the good,I’m out in the woods then I’m lost in the woods” —by Leon Russell ——————————̵...

Baby Rattles #2: Finished one set, starting some new ones

08-04-2008 07:22 PM by Alan | 1 comment »

Finally finished up the first two: And just in time as it seems our friends are all having babies at once. So I’m trying some others and practicing on the lathe. The two dumbbell shaped ones below are similar to the above two. Still need to be sanded and finished. I read about painting / staining with food coloring so I think I will try that with the lighter one. I also bought some walnut and birch dowels, cut them and hollowed them out with the router. I then filled th...

Work(shop) in Progress #2: Workbench: The TOP

06-18-2008 03:00 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

72”x24” 1-3/4” thick Top = $25Groz vise = $40Misc fasteners and hardware = $10Building your own workbench that actually fits in a tight space that has no space for a workbench = PRICELESS Now I just need to use scrap wood, and design legs to hold the workbench horizontally… I made it extra tall, cause every other bench I work on I get back pains from having to bend too much. In the mean time, I just improvise and put something under to hold it straight just so that I can work on it ...

Sewing Table #2: My First Fine Furnature!!! Getting Started... Milling the Lumber

06-10-2008 09:16 PM by Blake | 24 comments »

Well, I am finally graduating to furniture. I intend to blog the journey in this series to share what I learn in the transition from small boxes to full size furniture. I’ve done large projects before but furniture is sort of the ‘holy grail’ of woodworking, in my mind. It is what I would really like to do (if I could afford the lumber). By the way, my mom’s birthday is June 21st (we will see how close I get to the the deadline.) The Design: Here is the original...
