Wow It's Been 2 Years!!!!!

01-07-2011 01:38 AM by scrappy | 15 comments »

Just realized that it has been 2 years since I joined the LJ family. I have met a lot of great people on this site and some of you in person also. Made a lot of friends here too. Learned more then I ever thought I could from all the great people that always seem ready to help when needed. Thank you to all of you for commenting and posting wonderful projects to inspire a beginning woodworker. I know I still have a LONG way to go before my stuff reaches my goals. (Trifern, Roper, and many ot...

Tools and tool troubles. #4: THE PROPER CARE AND FEEDING OF HAND PLANES?

01-07-2011 12:15 AM by Roz | 12 comments »

Recently I received the entire gang box and hand tools that belonged to my uncle whom I barely remember. He was a carpenter and worked during the great depression as a CCC camp carpenter working and teaching young men the carpentry skills needed to perform their work. He repaired shoes and worked in the field judging from the tools he had. I am making a wall display with most of the tools and plan to use them occasionally. I particularly want to learn to tune, sharpen and use th...

DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...

Workbench #3: Tail Vise Mockup

01-01-2011 08:28 AM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

Well, after a VERY long break from actually working on my new bench (and some other projects) I have finished my second Masters degree and can now get back to more important things. Even though I wasn’t able to work on anything it didn’t keep me from thinking, and dreaming, about my date with Monsieur Roubo. I have had the 6”x6” wood for the legs in the garage for about 6 months so it should be dry enough for me to start on some of the joinery and I purchased 4”x6” wood for the stretchers a...

I’m a volunteer fire fighter and part of our district is Interstate 10, I see all sorts of PREVENTABLE accidents, its such a shame when a life is cut short by the actions of someone who just didn’t think it could happen to them. Believe me it CAN happen to you, please remember this the next time you get behind the wheel of your car, or get in a car with someone else! Let’s make 2011 the year we ALL get home safely. Thanks DON'T TEXT and DRIVE

Hi, I’m Donna Menke and I enjoy making things out of wood. You can see more of my projects and links to other woodworking and carving blogs on my web site: www.woodworks-by-donna.comI have some nice cherry wood on hand- so I’m going to make another harp similar to the last one, but with a few variations. Stocks above, and view of grain below.This is the harp I made from plans from MusicMakers back in 2007, out of walnut boards. http://harpmaking.blogspot.com/Here is the rough stoc...

On Light and Sight

12-28-2010 03:57 PM by Dave Owen | 3 comments »

As a young Architect about fifty years ago, a seminar speaker surprised me with the statement that ‘within limits, light can substitute for sight’. Although the principle is obvious, I’d never thought about it quite that way, and it influenced my lighting design throughout my career. Many years later when I laid out the lighting for my shop, I used that principle along with good advice from an article in “Fine Woodworking’ magazine. My rather odd shaped shop with an area of 530 square fe...
