Just for Fun... #72: Sometimes, the ideas just fall from the Sky...

492 days ago by littlecope | 23 comments »

The Roof on our Apartment building sustained a little damage this past Winter. After the snow melted, I found the remains of two Slate shingles, out of the hundreds that are up there… The one in the front didn’t survive the fall, but the one in the back put me of a mind to make something, if I can only square it up a little…Back in my landscaping days, in the late “70’s, we cut tons of Granite for Walkways and Stairs. It’s a lot of work, but relatively e...

Good week for struggles and not-quite-there-yets in the woodshop this week. Three projects left the floor complete. The first, chalkboard that has been wind-blown, vandalized and otherwise destroyed three times. We’ll see if it sticks this time. Here’s the link to the photo- for some reason the picture loader isn’t working…. The other two projects I failed to take a picture of. On Mon or Tues, I’ll put up a picture of those two projects. spent a majority of my t...

But kept talking ...

This weekend my family went with a fellow church member to a sister congregation located among one of the minority indigenous communities. Our purpose was to provide them with a couple chalkboards – one for the sanctuary and one for the Sunday school room. I brought all the tools and the chalkboard paint, and our friend arranged for the plywood to be delivered. The first step was to cut the sheets down a bit.

Thorsen Table contest #9: where there's a Lumberjock, there's a way...

I decided that I was going to finish the table yesterday. As I eluded to in my shop tour, the top is slate, specifically a piece of an old school chalkboard. (I have 4 or 5 large pieces courtesy of my grandfather). Months ago I hung up a 2x3 (ish) piece in the kitchen with a couple screws, it drilled really easy and cleanly. I expected to be able to cut this with my jigsaw, but I meant to pick up (or look for) something else - just in case, when I was out getting a few things at the Bi...
