Last time was the mortises and now the tenons. I had a pretty rough time getting these cut. The biggest issue was getting the shoulders straight all the way around. The first technique was with a router and a jig. For the flat. For the edge. Having never worked with such large joints, this turned out to be incredibly tedious and I couldn’t get the shoulders to line up. I tried table saw, hand saw…. wasn’t working. So, needed a new tool. Enter Stan...
Debbie and I love to rummage around at the backs of Department Stores (where they keep all the kitschy stuff) and search for Prints and Pictures to decorate our walls…We’re particularly fond of Photos, or artful representations, of the Icons of our generation… For example, we found this one waiting for us at a Target Store in Manchester… There are few alive who don’t recognize those four young men! Another that came home with us a little later was a Young M...
I just wanted to share with my Lumber Jock family on my DIY project of the month win from West Lake Ace Hardware for the month of July. This was a shock for me because I never win any thing. I was board one day & saw the entry on Facebook & said what the heck and entered. I forgot all about it when I received an e-mail Monday saying I won for the Month of July. I was very skeptical of this e-mail at first & thought it might be a scam or some one messing with me. We it just go̵...
Well I just wanted to put out there that I sold my first bowl on etsy yesterday. Here is a link to my shop. I was excited because I didn’t know the person. Here is a pic of the bowl sold.
Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...
Well I had not planned on entering the Gorilla Glue Contest but now I am. OOPS! I had the scrap. I had the glue. I even had the finish. What I did not have was a project that would use the glue. As of last night that changed! I salvaged the cedar from an old picnic table and benches that I had retired a few years ago. It looked horribly weathered, but I assumed that underneath it would be ok, and who in their right mind would want to throw away an entire picnic table of cedar. Th...
Juniper Log Table with Stone Inlay Burled Cottonwood Top #3: Ready to sand the first stage of stone inlay
Here is how the table looks right now. Everything is bolted together, the branch pedestal, cottonwood base and cottonwood top have been bolted together. My husband has finished the first step in setting the stone inlay, we now need to sand down the stone so that is is smooth, then add a finer stone to fill in the gaps.
About a year ago, my grandfather approached me about building a project with him in his shop. He had done this many times before, but the arrogant kid/teenager/college student never had the time. However, this time I jumped at the idea. I don’t know if it was the timing, the project, etc… but everything seemed to work out. To understand the importance of this, you have to understand that my family is not one of those “close-knit” family units. Everybody is divorced (some a couple of times)...
I am starting a cedar hope chest soon with some free cedar that was given as a gift. My plans call for raised panels which I have been wanting to try. The only router bits I can find are for 1/2 inch shank and I have a 1/4 inch shank router. I really can’t go out and get $200 worth of bits and a new router at this moment. I tried a test panel on the table saw holding the panels vertically on a high fence jig and it turned out pretty well. I have been studying on trying to do it hor...
