Selling Your Art Work?

08-27-2012 05:09 PM by OregonBurls | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, I have just redesigned Oregonburls.com would like to offer an artist page. I know that it is expensive to get your art into galleries that charge up to 40% of the sales price and ebay up to 25%+. Oregonburls.com is an advertised site. This page (Artist Corner) would allow you to sell your wood creations with just a flat fee of 10% of the sale price.You would keep your item and when it sells I print the shipping label and email it to you along with sending you a check or pa...

Tool Chest Refurb #6: Okay, This Time it's All About the Lid...

08-25-2012 02:06 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 34 comments »

Where are we? Oh, yeah. There’s a top skirt (not glued): And the frame part of the frame and panel: With the idea (stupid, perhaps) to use the old, original bottom boards for the panel. Jointed, with biscuits to glue, and work can go on. A problem becomes apparent when clean-up begins. A crack (or craic), that is more like a split, but not good in either sense. With the intervention of my LJ pals, I chose the right path and split the board, then glued up the ...

My First Workbench #13: Day 13: Dry fit the base!

08-25-2012 01:54 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

As usual, for the pictures, click here. Today was very exciting! I decided to finish the base joinery prep once and for all and powered through the last 3 tenons and mortises. I wrapped up with a dry run of the base and I am very happy with the results (though there are a few minor glitches to take care of tomorrow…more on that below). To begin with, I was not at all thrilled with continuing the tenon cutting. I have been using a makeshift saw horse (2 pieces of offcuts from t...

My First Workbench #10: Day 10: Glue up finished, starting on joinery

08-21-2012 10:19 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

If you want to see the version with all the pictures, please click here. I got up with the sun today to get a head start on bench before the munchkins got up. First order of business was to unclamp the 2nd half that I glued up last night. Then, after a quick run with the plane to smooth out the mating faces, I glued up the two halves. It’s now one massive slab of wood where a little over a week ago, it was just a collection of 16 2×4s. This thing is gratifyingly heavy as well. ...

Scary Sharp - my first attempt ever at sharpening

08-20-2012 12:28 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

It took about an hour, but I got my 1” chisel sharpened today, at least the main 25 degree bevel. I jacked the sandpaper up too much to do the 30 degree secondary bevel and didn’t feel like setting new paper up. I’ll do it later. I didn’t have the exact grits I needed in order to do it according to the one article I was going off of, so I just used what I had that was close. I started with 100 grit and ended up with 2000 grit. I used masking tape with the gr...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

My Own Road to Damascus #3: Let's try shaping by hand

08-12-2012 09:43 PM by Kookaburra | 6 comments »

After some excellent advice in my last blog post, I decided rather that trying to work on my dovetail skills, I would take a step back and work on the component skills. I wanted to make my version of woodpezzer's porcupine. I had the wood (some figured maple in smaller pieces). Why not try that! I started by gluing up three one inch pieces and drawing on my little porky. He is about 14” long and 6” tall. Next came my rough shaping. Big chunks, little chunks, some ...
