The Sawdust Chronicles Spring 2009 30-Day Build Challenge #1: Pre-Contest Kickoff

The Sawdust Chronicles’ 30-Day Challenge is simply that – a challenge. We will be challenging you, the beginning woodworker, to complete a woodworking project within 30 days. We pick the project, you find or create the plans, you iron out the details, you complete the project, and you reap the rewards. The level of difficulty of the challenge should be self-scaled depending on your level of woodworking talent. A majority of the challenge is dependent upon the honor system. There ...

project challenge #1: Hey Martin! Where's the holiday decoration project challenge?

12-07-2008 07:31 AM by tooldad | 1 comment »

I finally have time to decorate and there appears to be no challenge for the current holiday as there was for Halloween. Any chance of creating one? If not I challenge everyone! Since I will be an entrant, I cannot be a sponsor, that’s the rules. My entry will be up be the end of next weekend. Tooldad

Step Stool #10: Hey Brother, Can You Spare a Vote?

10-13-2008 08:32 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

I’ve entered my step stool in a contest on SmartFlix (think NetFlix for DIYers). While I do believe in “May the best man win,” I’m no fool: all the other contestants are probably trying to get votes just like I am! So how about it? Click on the link to go to the contest page. Thanks in advance for your vote! P.S. I plan to do a write-up on SmartFlix in the near future, so stay tuned for that.

Baby Furniture #9: One Man's Junk contest question

07-28-2008 07:07 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

If I don’t get a lot done in the next couple evenings, this will be a mute point I know. But, I was wondering if you guys would consider my crib able to be entered in the contest. I’ve never entered anything yet and thought it’d be a neat side note to the crib story. The lumber is all from my wife’s uncle. Him and his father milled it 20 plus years ago. We helped him haul a bunch of good quality lumber out of a place he rented to his farm. After that was finished, h...

Bhutanese Inspired Bookcase

04-21-2008 07:45 AM by lobbster | 8 comments »

This design is a takeoff of a night table design I did last year. The influence is the architecture of Bhutan. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso, one of only about three places in the world that share this type of architecture. Bhutanese temples are characterized by their inward sloping walls and graduated windows.Front View: I used a combination of the golden ratio and Hambidge Progression to come up with the dimensions. The bookcase is open on both sides and can be plac...
