My entry for the Summer’s Woodworking 2×4 Contest. Carl Jacobson joked about making a rocket ship from a 2×4 so I took up the challenge. Hope you enjoy the video, bonus footage at the end of my daughter and I “flying” the rocket.

wood joinery / garden contest entry #1: my challenge

2551 days ago by scottb | 3 comments »

Ah, life. It’s what happens while you’re busy making other plans. I had (ok, still have) a great idea for both contests. Yes, two birds with one stone. And what was even better, was that it required only small amounts of time and attention, spread out over the duration of the contest. It was required actually. As I would be turning pieces of green wood, and needed to stagger the assembly, so as the pieces could dry gradually and mother nature could do the joinery for me. No need f...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #2: another perspective

2551 days ago by scottb | 0 comments »

It’s funny how this contest challenges you to think about wood in different ways. At first you think of how to replace nails with dowels or dovetails… then as designs get too complex, the mind broadens and figures out how to strip away the clutter and simplify the design or the plan. (I’ve always been good with simplification – resume’ as it were) It finally ocurred to me, just tonight, that the baskets my sister made (we have two, a wine basket and a stair ba...

Bhutanese Inspired Bookcase

2284 days ago 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...

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

2186 days ago 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...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #3: more turning in one day...

2550 days ago by scottb | 7 comments »

To date, the most time I’ve spent at the lathe was 3 hours – and that was in a small classroom setting practing beads and coves – 1/2 the time playing and getting a feel for the tools, and the rest of the time trying to make deliberate shapes – while contantly dealing with catches. Today, I began working on my wood joinery/garden project. 1 hour of planning and cutting, 4 hours straight at the lathe! Also to date, the longest things I’ve turned came in around ...
