Another 52 Weeks #11: I missed another week. But prepping for camp!

03-23-2015 01:05 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Well I missed another week of posting this time though it was not due to pleasure. My aunt passed on Monday and I was with my Uncle most of this week. She has had kidney problems for several years now and 2 weeks ago things started to get bad. I visited last weekend and on Sunday she was having a good day. By Monday morning everything had changed though. My Uncle is doing as well as can be expected. While I spent a large portion of the week away from work and my shop I did some brain storm...

Photographing long or tall projects. #1: Photographing long or tall projects.

03-12-2015 11:53 PM by Druid | 9 comments »

Since a lot of us produce “longer”, or taller, items that we want to post on LJ’s, we typically end up having to take the photo from a distance so that the entire object can be included. The resulting photo ends up not showing the finer details of your work.This type of scenario applies to some of my own pieces, such as carved walking staffs, or canes, but there is a free tool to help us get around this problem, and I expect that it is already installed on your PC with eithe...

Book Shelf - Portable Bookshelf - for Tabletop

12-31-2013 12:24 AM by Joe Lyddon | 18 comments »

Book Shelf – Portable Bookshelf – for Tabletop Wood Magazine – May 2003 – for Plans I used a Sliding Dovetail to attach the shelf to the Ends instead of what the plans called for. I found a Bed Headboard on the street on Trash day… was solid wood! That’s what I used. I could have / should have sanded the wood a little more, but I thought it would some character to it the way I did. A little wood burning was done for a Unicorn on each End. ...

Table bookcase #2: Finishing it up

09-22-2013 07:33 PM by siavosh | 0 comments »

I finally bought a joinery saw, the new Lee-Valley (LV) extra fine dozuki they had on special a couple weeks ago, and boy does it leave a cleaner cut than my 210mm ryoba. The kerf is so thin, sometimes the blade sticks, I might look into waxing it a bit if it persists. Out of all the hand tool skills, I want to improve my sawing the most. By far it seems that a good cut saves the most time and leaves a better result than any later clean up work with my chisels. Most of the joinery were...

Table bookcase #1: Getting the stock ready

09-15-2013 12:27 AM by siavosh | 2 comments »

Last week I found a pro woodworker/contractor advertising his offcuts on craigslist. I headed over and was in awe of what he called offcuts. I ended up with some great tips from him in addition to some slabs of Alaskan yellow cedar, sugar pine, and some pieces of walnut and cherry. I’m saving these for a toolbox I hope to make soon and a marking gauge. In the meantime, I knew I was running out of space to store this wood in a sightly manner back home. The little wood space I did have...

2 Board Modular Bookshelf - Woodworking Basics

06-29-2013 10:51 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

Exercises in Artisanship #31: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 2

10-25-2012 09:40 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...

One Project Down, Another Ready To Go

08-23-2010 09:49 PM by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Finally finished the face frames on the built-in bookcases, and they are now done except for painting (and my lovely wife is going to take care of that). Here is the “finished” product that still needs some “finish”. Now on to new and (gasp) even bigger things. We are going to take a wall out of the Kitchen and open it up to the dining room, and where the wall was, we’re going to put in a new set of Cabinets with a built in breakfast bar. The run of...
