Simple picture frame DIYA birthday gift for my best and most loyal friend during 20 years now My wonderful old friend Michael, had a birthday, and I was planning to buy him a meditation, self insight or perhaps; man in the in the midway crisis book. Yes we are both around the tricky 40. I was looking out the window, trying to come up with a good idea. But my wonderful Caroline said to me on Skype ‘why don’t you give him something personal’, and I agreed right away. ...
Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty productive day. Among other things, I finished cutting my matching self-framing picture frame, which will be the companion piece to the dresser tray I designed last week. In designing this pattern, I was fighting with whether I should or should not do additional scroll work in the center of the tray. To me it seemed that it was interesting enough on its own. I wanted the scroll work border to be the highlight of the piece, along with the beautiful chara...

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...
I recently returned from seven awesome (and tiring) days of teaching at the William Ng School of Fine Woodworking. The first five days were dedicated to the Modern Hall Table, and the weekend class was focused on the frame. And believe it or not, the frame was the more challenging project to complete in the given time-frame. But I am glad to say that everyone was able to go home with some semblance of a finished project. I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures I took durin...
How is it that I love Woodworking and I love Photography, but I can’t bring myself to put the two together yet? But anytime I get one of my pieces mounted and framed I always choose a black frame. Whether is is metal or wood I always go with black. Maybe I haven’t taken that appropriate picture yet.
I picked up today where I left yesterday. today however, I had a bit more time to work on this. I printed the face frame design/layout from Sketchup, and out to the freezer we go: I added the 2nd piece that makes up the back (had to use 2 pieces of plywood as I don’t have 1 large enough part for the back), and then I noticed that my plywood carcass is a bit out of wack- the back aligns with the left side, but the right side is a bit lower, ah crap, I guess I’ll have to shim...
The Non-Electric Chair #14: Making the Chair (The back frame gets glued up and the chair comes together)
There are some jobs that must be done as you go along; they will be very difficult to do once the back frame is glued up.Unfortunately, I am one of those people who must see results and can’t wait indefinitely to see a frame going together. Apart from the fact that I think someone said “A decision deferred is a decision well made” I have two excuses for this less than grown up behaviour.a) Sanding every square millimetre can be pointless if it turns out that there is a final curve or detai...
