The old time woodshop journals #27: Spoon for a tote!

10-03-2012 10:20 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

After the piles of shavings, sawdust and sweat has been had the broom sweeps in a satisfied rhythm. While my inner happy finality of the spoon makers tote still brings me good feelings of inspiration to hew and chop once more, I ponder over at some fresh cherry and the task takes a hold of my crazed passion. The urge is in my spirit for the creative kind of dance only a happy fool with his old hand tools knows how to do. Oh well could be worse….I could be an old fool with new cheap t...

Tool thoughts #39: 1500 days ago... and current project update

10-02-2012 06:20 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

almost 4 and a half years ago; 1500 days ago (according to my ‘blog list’ page) I posted my first blog entry her on LJ’s which was about my woodworking journey. I’m still on that journey, and lately it has become nearly the center of my activities. I don’t get out to the shop every day, but even on the days I’m not out there, I’m still doing something online related to woodworking. Currently I’m in the midst of a massive cutting board proj...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #3: Diamonds and rain

09-30-2012 12:51 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 18 comments »

I added the diamonds to the table top. It was a bit of a chore because of the imperfect line up of the pentagons. I spent a lot of time tweaking a few angles by half a degree and sneaking in the exact length. Instead of making a bunch of diamonds and trying to cut them perfectly, I used triangles. In retrospect, diamonds would have been a nightmare and the triangles look good. Despite my plans to use maple, I went ahead and used oak. The oak came from a drawer front that was kicked to ...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

Thought I would let all the lumber Jocks know that there is A George Nakashima exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle WA. It’s a great show with lots to look at the only bad part is you cant take pictures.

09-24-2012 07:26 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hey everyone, well I guess I was just plain not paying attention when posting my last blog explaining my rustic sassafras hiking stick and cherry spoon work. I totally forgot to add some pics in of these…lol. These would greatly add to the experience of my past Saturdays wood working session. So here they are! Pic 1: Some new fresh cherry ready for some spoon making! Pic 2: Roughed out blank ready for greater detail. Finished project can be found here: http://lumberjocks...
