Mini hand tool cabinet #5: Front and Back Panels

10-17-2014 10:27 PM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Time for another update on the mini hand tool cabinet. These may start to come less frequently, since I am now involved in multiple Christmas Time projects as well (all of which I will post either in the Blog or at the very least in the Projects area early on in the new year). With all of the cabinet sides made, the next step I took was to make the panels for the back and for the door. My original plan was to find some 1/4” plywood for the panels, but I was enjoying using solid pine ...

Current Project #3: 1st Real Picture Frame

08-28-2014 07:43 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

Another house project. We’ve wanted to frame a large piece of my daughter’s artwork. The cost of frames is a bit higher than me making one out of an old drawer front found on the curb. I’ll be doing the matting as well—a new skill to be acquired!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1321: Art Play Date

05-22-2014 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

You would think that the last thing that I want or need to do is to take on more projects.  Being a designer, my day to day existence is filled with projects and the process of creating things.  I work in many different medias ranging from wood to painting and now even to textiles and needlework. There are times when I feel a bit overwhelmed by all that I have on my plate. Why, on Earth would I choose to try to do even more?I believe the answer can be summed up in one word – c...

Gramercy tools bow saw kit / new tool, christmas present

02-13-2014 07:19 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi! the first project I’d like to share with all yall this year is this bow saw I made. I was given a bow saw kit from Gramercy tools. Knobs, brass blade holders, 3 – 12 ” saw blades. They have the plans for free on their website…. however, like many of us, I can’t just go with someone else’s standard or ordinary set up. So I did a google search for bowsaw, and selected “IMAGES FOR *” and got thousands (well maybe only a hundred or so) of...

Flip Table #2: Building the Base

01-18-2014 09:59 PM by hjt | 2 comments »

In the process of building the base, I did what I do best… I screwed up. This time the screw up was adding incorrectly. After a little discussion with my fellow LJ’s, I decided to cut more lumber and start over. I ran a bunch of lumber through the planner. While I have this connected to my dust collector, I’m amazed how much shavings still end up on the floor. I felt half laps would provide me the best strength and support for this project, especially since the planer and drill w...

Dark Box for Old Timey Pictures #1: Frame and panel construction, overlapping through mortises

08-27-2013 03:12 PM by BTimmons | 4 comments »

The project for my photographer friend is coming along, at least far enough to bother documenting it. He’s fallen in love with making ambrotype images. He’s got all the developing equipment in a dark room setup in his garage, and he’s asked me to make him a portable dark box that will enable him to develop images anywhere. His idea is to start a side business doing portraits at conventions, fairs, and whatnot. I decided that a frame and panel box would be fun to try, s...

Large Carved Frame #1: Background

08-20-2013 06:03 PM by Rex B | 1 comment »

This project is a few months old, but I’m just now getting around to writing this blog. I came up with a novel method of carving intricate shapes with a router, and I thought it was worth sharing. I’m probably not the first to come up with this technique, but I came up with it on my own without really seeing it anywhere else. The background: My wife wanted to make a large chalkboard to hang in our dining area, so I cut a large piece of cheap hardboard (30” square) and we ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1102: Cutting, Routing and Scrolling Frames

08-10-2013 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finished all of my cutting yesterday. That was a big plus. Cutting out nine plaques of this type in under two days was an accomplishment that I was satisfied with. I had initially hoped that I would have these all oiled and finished by today, but as usual, things came up and I need to sand and oil them today. I should have better pictures tomorrow. I am pleased with these designs. While they are not really difficult, some of the motifs do present a little bit of a challenge. I think...

Also, video blog is here: I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...
