A phone call from Santa this morning

12-26-2011 12:29 AM by Trev_Batstone | 5 comments »

My step-son, who is a carpenter and fine woodworker (his full time career) phoned me this morning (Christmas day). We will be seeing him this evening for dinner at another relative’s place, so he asked me on the phone if I own a jointer yet, to which I replied “no”. He said he would bring me a Delta jointer to the dinner location this evening. I couldn’t believe my ears, but he said he has the jointer sitting in his workshop and it never gets used, so he is dona...

Should I give up woodworking???

02-11-2008 05:05 PM by itsme_timd | 26 comments »

OK, this is just plain sad… I KNOW I’m not the best of the best (yet) but I have to say it was mighty insulting that my entry in the “Not Just Any Box” contest received fewer points than Hap’s entry, “Cedar”. I mean, come on! It’s a picture of a LOG! Let’s compare: Does it have a lid?TD – YesHap – Nooooo… Is it boxy?TD – YesHap – Not so much Can you store items in it?TD – YesHap – ...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

Sapele Maple Coffee Table #1: Planning

03-19-2014 05:57 AM by Jordan | 0 comments »

I have been planning a coffee table project for about a year now and it has gone through a number of design concepts. I have always wanted to build a table out of walnut and contrast is with maple accents. This is a recurring theme in my projects. I struggled with the theme and style for a long time. The intent was to be simple, but with some minor details that stand out and increase the technical aspect of the work. I also like square and simple lines with solid members. I am not a fan ...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

The old time woodshop journals #2: From the shop to the fields to the bench

05-11-2012 09:38 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

In the ongoing appreciation of being so lucky to work with wood I thought a small field trip was in order. The trip was designed to get even more in contact with the reasons and values of what makes the fascination of wood work ever growing in my life. It is far too inviting to get lost in the tangle of parkway traffic, impatient attitudes and a breakneck pace that actually lends to a greater amount of stress than one person really would ever believe. How would I be able to have the proper...
