random #7: The tiniest woodshop - resawing miniboards

03-09-2009 01:07 PM by Gary Fixler | 18 comments »

I didn’t want to waste any time slabbing up some of the minilogs I cut out of the mystery branches I found last week, so Saturday I had a go at it. Very exciting. I had some split pieces, so I sanded them up on my belt sander. I like the faint grain revealed in the piece on the left, sanded down from one like that which I’m holding: I clamped my belt sander down to the table to use it as a mini (though relatively enormous) benchtop model: Here’s a long piece sanded ...

Barbie Dollhouse #3: First floor walls erected

03-08-2011 03:28 AM by rogerw | 6 comments »

Had a productive past few days and got all the walls cut out and erected. Here are a few pics of the progress. Cut some shallow dadoes to locate the walls into their locations The ceiling for the first floor had to exactly match the floor so this was done before erecting the walls using a flush trim bit in the router and the floor as the pattern. Now that the ceiling is done the walls go up. For these next 3 shots I layed the ceiling in place. It gave t...

Barbie Dollhouse #4: First Floor Details

04-07-2011 12:18 AM by rogerw | 2 comments »

Been installing flooring, wainscoting, paint, and fireplace. This is taking longer than I had anticipated. I am quickly running out of time. Here are some pictures. The fireplace is made of layered mdf. i then took a rag and dabbed on some joint compound to give it that texture. I think it came out pretty good. See ya next time…

Mikros Kosmos #3: Hey look, handtools...

07-05-2010 05:33 AM by tyskkvinna | 33 comments »

Amusing tiny back-story: I have received more than one piece of “hate mail” from persons who feel I do not do “real” woodworking because I do most of my work on CNC. Now, I don’t particularly care if anybody wants to call what I do “woodworking” or not – this is a fight I’ve fought for too many years, in many genres. (I embrace technology. A lot of artists feel this is killing art as a whole and as such, I should never be deemed an artist....

Kids in the Shop! #8: 11 Months in the Shop Together- March

03-30-2014 01:18 PM by clieb91 | 9 comments »

Well it has been a productive month in the shop for my daughter. She has tackled some pieces for her dollhouse that she wanted to make on her own. The first was a small easy chair and yesterday we worked on two beds. The chair was her idea and came straight from the scrap bin, at this point the miter box is the easiest way for her to work on cutting the scraps she has been using and she is happy to be using it, just working on those muscles. :) The chair consisted of just two pieces...

Mikros Kosmos #1: And it begins.

06-30-2010 05:12 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

Okay all. Time for something a little bit different. This story has a preface: When I was wee, I kept to myself. I was not particularly interested in playing with other children, though I did have some friends. I had a series of autoimmune disorders that kept me occupied (and often still do). I was allowed to have any books I wanted. While I did my fair share of reading of young adult literature (Nancy Drew!) my favourite thing – and thing I asked for most – were things abou...

Mikros Kosmos #10: And they say the outside doesn't count

07-15-2010 05:24 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

I was actually going to work on other things today, but I ended up having a really rough day and wanted something quiet to focus on. So I shifted gears and worked on the tiny house a little bit, though I opted to not work on the saw. (At least not until later—but that’s another story) After some heavy debate, I painted these pieces yellow. And these pieces red. I put a lot of debate into that, actually, and whether I should just paint the big pieces or do somethin...

Mikros Kosmos #20: My first dovetails!

08-29-2010 04:18 AM by tyskkvinna | 10 comments »

So the discussion in my last blog really got me thinking and for whatever reason this evening I decided to give dovetails a shot. I’ve never done any sort of locking joinery before… in fact I’ve only even tried mitred joints a few times without all that much luck. I figured it out. This is 3/32×1/8 balsa wood. It was just two scrap pieces I thought I’d see if I could actually do it. Determining that, in fact, I could, I set about making the drawers. ...

Mikros Kosmos #11: I like shiny floors.

07-22-2010 04:20 AM by tyskkvinna | 31 comments »

By the way, I’m happy to be back. :-) It’s true. I like my hardwood floors very shiny, with a glass-like surface. So—the floors were all glued in through the whole house. They were, however, a wee bit uneven. There’s some slight variance in the planks – we’re talking less than 1/16”. Just enough to be OBVIOUS in such a tiny scale. So I got some sandpaper and used a little sanding block (which was a piece of purpleheart, haha, just what I had...

Mikros Kosmos #19: And we're back

08-28-2010 02:55 PM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

Hey everybody! Haven’t been able to make any progress on this project lately, due to lots of travelling and then the work backlash that happens after lots of travelling.. Last night I had some time avaiable and decided to work on this. I am using simple balsa wood for the frame of this. There’s no reason to use anything heavier. So, I glued together the base frame and then glued some heavy cardboard to it. I considered using wood for the bottom, since traditionally pl...
