8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #1: It all starts with a good floor...

03-23-2011 11:04 PM by JonH | 4 comments »

My construction class here at school started building a shed, and today was the day for the floor. Since this shed will be transported and moved around, we put three 2×6’s 12’-6” long on the bottom to use for skid plates. The floor is made from treated 2×4’s with 3/4” treated plywood flooring. This costs a little more, but it should last a long time since it will be exposed to the elements. We used 2-3/4” torx screws to attach the floor joists...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #277: Another Milestone

03-07-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was good. I finished the two sea shell painting patterns for the classes that I am going to be teaching. I am fairly happy with how they came out and I hope they are clear and understandable. Writing painting instructions is so much different from scroll saw patterns. Scroll saw and wood working patterns seem to be pretty much cut and dry, but painting patterns have many variables in them. I often find myself when doing a painting adding another layer or changing the tone here...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #2: Day 2

07-13-2010 04:10 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Today started off a bit slow. We began by choosing our lumber. We had the option between walnut and cherry so I chose a nice piece of cherry since it seems like I always work in walnut. Next, we traced the template for the back legs onto one half of our stock and rough cut and jointed an edge to create the plane for the back leg to side rail joint. We got to use the 16” Powermatic jointer after some adjustment to get the in-feed and out-feed table parallel. This was a bit dis...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #1: Day 1

07-12-2010 05:18 AM by doorslammer | 1 comment »

This week I’m on vacation and taking a chair making class at the Appalachian Center for Craft which is a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University where I got my undergraduate degree in engineering and am currently working on a masters of engineering. Every summer, the craft center offers several, week long workshops in all of their offered mediums. So this year I decided to commit to attending a class and not letting life get in the way. The class is based on a modern dining ch...

A day with David Ellsworth

03-23-2010 03:45 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...

Yo Joe! #2: WoodCraft Class, Houston TX

02-01-2010 07:24 PM by Dukegijoe | 5 comments »

Yesterday was a good day, by almost any woodworking standard. Regrettably I didn’t touch wood to a tool. So how can it be a good day? I got to spend it with David Marks of WoodWorks Fame. He taught a class at my local WoodCraft and my wife was kind enough to give me the day to go. This was my second class with David; I took one about a year ago on Double-Bevel Marquetry (keep meaning to get a scroll saw, but something bigger and more powerful always seems to get in the way). The class ...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #6: A Class Act

12-24-2009 07:26 PM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It looks like we’ll be running down to SoCal at the end of February to visit family & clients. We’ll take advantage of the opportunity to hit the Gamble House Joinery Tour, hit Disneyland while the kids are at school, and most importantly: Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene Details I class at the William Ng School of Woodworking! I noticed that Marc Spagnoula (Woodwhisperer) is teaching classes there (i.e. Hall Brothers Frame, etc.). I’m really jazzed because...
