not sure if this link showed up but I tried pasting it from my Facebook page. If not, you can just go to the page. I will be adding more as I finish them. www.facebook.com/piddlinchic I’ve been having fun with these knives. Recycling “trash” has it’s own rewards. I could probably do a better job and save a lot of time by buying steel stock or precut knife blades, but this is much more fun and challenging.
Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...
I posted my latest furniture projects to the LJ gallery before I put them in my own website, that just shows how you guys rate, but I did get them added to my site and they have many more detailed shots of the construction. You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar. I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design ...
Well, after being excited, then not, then excited, then not, and then excited, and then not, for the past 3 weeks, today I was told that a check is in the mail for the deposit money for the Custom Steak Knife sets I will be making. So, I’m officially at “excited” again. I posted a few days ago about the knife/scrimshaw samples being sent here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/2470 Now, I just wanted to follow up, and post that I did get the order today....
This time around in our time lapse woodworking series I’m sanding a pair of Canadian Black Walnut panels that will be assembled into a frame and panel. The panels have been re-sawed out of a 2’’ thick board to allow for a beautiful book match, I showed the process in the previous video Re-sawing 2’’ thick Canadian Black Walnut I first start out with 220 sandpaper on our festool RO150, then to 320, 400, 500 and finally a sheep wool pad to burnish and pull out...
This is a chaise lounge we’ve been working on, we designed it a few months ago but have been to busy to get to the actual construction. I’ve now spent a few days fabricating and I’m really excited as to the progress. So I made this cheesy video hope you enjoy.
My wife and I occasionally drive up to Wisconsin for a variety of reasons. The Milwaukee Art Museum, which is phenomenal, the scenery, or just to get away from Chicago for a while. One of the must do’s on these tripsMore… is to pick up a few cases of a craft beer that’s unavailable south of the Wisconsin border. Neither of us is a really big beer drinker, but when we do indulge, it’s usually a microbrew of some sort, and this one is a particular favorite. There seem...
I’ve taken a step away from the woodworking this week at work. Getting burned out, you know? So the kids are working with leather – wallets, pouches, motorcycle patches, etc. Normal kid stuff. Thought I’d show my personal leather project: Wrapping the handles to my personal (and my work’s) tools. Something about the feel of good ol’ worked in leather around a tool. Feels good in the hand. Also, the kids get more control with the smaller tools, and it te...
