My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1006: This and That and The Other Thing

04-10-2013 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Even though the majority of fretwork projects are pretty complex and elegant, I have always liked the charm of a more primitive style. There is something about the simplicity of primitive and country decorating that never fails to put a smile on my face. When I lived in the Chicago area, much of my house was decorated in a country style, and I thought that it had a warm and welcoming feeling to it. One of the fun things about being a designer is that I am able to explore many different ty...

This week in urban logging #5: It's been awhile since my last report.

08-06-2008 07:54 PM by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

The logs have slowly trickled in…until this morning, I scored nicely. I have not seen this guy the last couple weeks. He has been bringing me a load once a week, he brought a nice one today . 25 logs 8’-14’ long. The smallest was a cherry just over 12”, most in the 18”-24” range. Cherry, walnut, hickory, red oak, white oak, honeylocust and hard maple. These should keep me out of trouble for a couple days . The walnut is iffy (crooked) the oaks and hickory a...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

07-21-2014 12:40 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...

Free Cherry

07-19-2011 04:46 AM by Clay Ortiz | 5 comments »

Last hunting season I found a nice big cherry burl on a dead tree that was still standing. We had our camp work day this past weekend so I cut down the burl while I was there. I already had a nice cherry log that my neighbor gave me about three months ago. A friend of mine told me about a guy that could cut them and his mill was only a few miles from my house. Since I had the burl on my trailer I figured I would load the log and get them cut.The guy that milled the wood for me h...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #10: Dovetails

04-15-2017 11:23 PM by Ron Aylor | 12 comments »

Dovetails - I think the boiled linseed oil and sunbathing has created a rather nice patina, thus far. How about you?  As the frame rests quietly in the sun, I start laying out the dovetails on the desk. I like to use a mirror to keep an eye on the backside of the board. This helps me keep things nice and square!  Pins first, tails first … whatever! I can do both, but I find it a bit easier to go with tails first. So, I line things up and scribe the location of the tails onto the pin boa...

Kitchen Remodel #17: Its been 2445 days since I last posted on my Buffet build

02-14-2014 12:27 AM by Karson | 7 comments »

Well it’s been 2445 days since my last post on my buffet build. As I stated in the first posting my wife said that you are not doing anything until I get my kitchen. I got up to blog entry 5 before the kitchen got hot (You know what I mean). So then blogs 6 through 16 were on the kitchen cabinet build. That finished and so I started to clean up my shop and I had my son-in-law help me to move a table saw to the middle of the shop and move a portable workbench to the wall area where th...

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #8: Dresser Finds a Home

10-06-2008 06:39 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 1 comment »

I completed the baby’s room over the weekend and “installed” the dresser last night. Since this is more a remodeling project, I’ve posted the project page over at HomeRefurbers.com. While I designed this piece to last a lifetime, and not to compliment the room design, I think it looks reasonably “at home” in it’s new digs! More details at my personal blog: http://tenonandspline.com/blog/archives/155
