My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1731: The Spice of Life

05-09-2016 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It has been another busy end of the week, as well as weekend. As we are moving into the second week of May, the weather is finally getting warmer and beginning to resemble spring and summer. Hopefully in the next week, I will be picking up my car from the place that is working on it and I will once again have my driving freedom. It has been a long story regarding  my vehicle this past year, and I don't want to bore anyone here with those details. There is enough good to focus on and ...

Turntable Plinth (Base) Project #1: Design Concepts

01-18-2016 10:17 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

This is the first of two blog entries that expand on my Turntable Plinth project. It describes various concepts I explored. I bought the maple hardwood for the plinth before I designed the plinth. The maple boards were plain, so I knew I had to use either contrasting tones, grooves, or accents to add visual interest. It took me well over a year to finalize the design. I explored numerous designs. You can’t beat CAD (I use MicroStation) for this type of iterative design process. ...

We have crates of the little plastic blocks stacked up, blocking access to the table. Come holiday time in a few weeks, the Legos will be relegated to the laundry room in exi...

My Workshop Cleanup Journey #1: The Start of the journey

06-01-2015 03:17 AM by Joshua Oehler | 0 comments »

Well I am about to embark on a journey to take my 2 car garage and dedicate it to being a workshop. Oh and of course for my wife to be able to park her car in bad weather (or so she thinks…that’s the way I sold her on the idea anyways) I have grown tired of all the clutter, shuffling things around to work on anything, having to move lawn mowers, motorcycles, camping stuff and just about everything else just to have room to work on a project and also the opposite…having to...

The Bonfire Chair build blog

05-23-2015 09:01 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 14 comments »

This is the blog describing how i made this chair. For a long time I have had this corner of my garden that have a place for a bonfire. We use it a lot and the favorite is making pancakes using a pan on a long stick. My son loves it! But the place itself could use some help. Especially the chairs are a bit annoying. I keep them because they were a gift from a friend and have a fun story to them (they are made by the inmates of a local prison that houses long term prisoners): The ...

Window Seat Bookcase #1: The Design Process

12-18-2014 01:09 PM by jeffbranch | 3 comments »

My daughter is an avid reader and still prefers reading from a real book even though I think most 24 year olds are downloading books these days. Since books were stacking up on the floor, she asked me to build a second bookcase. The only space available was beneath two double hung windows. This meant the bookcase would need to be much more horizontal than vertical. She also liked the idea of something that she could also use as a bench. Here is what I came up with in SketchUp… ...
