Things I Didn't Know I Had - Stack of Woodworking Magazines

07-31-2012 08:05 PM by AngieO | 17 comments »

My DH has decided to give me a better space in the garage to keep my tools and things. So right now while everything is getting rearranged it’s hard to get at all my stuff. So I’ve been planning out some projects I’d like to make. While looking on LJ’s and other sites for some projects to build I started to look for some plans. Until I really get going with this I’ll need plans to go by. I like Ana-White.com because of the easy to follow plans. If you have sit...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #3: A look under her skirt....

I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...

Design v1: Walled Sides - Feedback welcome (weight bearing, cross bracing, design)

02-07-2011 10:24 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I’m awaiting a benchtop milling machine which weighs about 500lbs, and with the expense of the machine + additional tooling that would probably follow (vises, cutters, tool holders, etc) I wanted to be able to minimize the expense on the stand. most stands are in the 150-400 range (including shipping and such), which would be better used for other things. I still have some extra 4×4 FIR from building my workbench, and figured I might as well just use that. My first concept was t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #3: To submit or not to submit

06-05-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It certainly is a beautiful morning here in Nova Scotia. The sun is shining and everything is quiet except the sound of the birds in the distance. The past several days have started out foggy and overcast, as many do being so close to the ocean. Usually by mid-morning things clear up and the sun burns off the fog. The ocean stays pretty cold in these parts. I have only actually went for a swim in the ocean once in my six years of being here (if you could call it that – I got as far...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

Brainstorming Stage

06-08-2009 04:56 PM by James | 4 comments »

So I have all of this old barn siding. The barn in my estimate was 100+ years old (Wish i would have taken a picture of it). I managed to pull some of the more useable planks off of it, and here’s what I have: The box is made from this wood and stained with watco danish oil and 1 coat of poly. I would like to make something rustic out of it, as it has lots of wear. There are bug tracks, nail holes, stains, and imperfections in all the boards. They are pretty warped...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #1: Committing Myself

10-17-2007 12:14 PM by Dekker | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. After blogging about books on boxes , I got the itch to make some boxes! I haven’t delved extensively into boxes, and it has been ages, so it’s like starting new again. My wife makes jewellery that she sells online and at craft shows. She has a show sometime in late October, and another in early November, and I thought it would be a great idea to offer some jewellery boxes next to the jewellery. I therefore have a motivational deadline...

LumberJocks is Depressing Me...

10-11-2007 07:40 PM by Dekker | 14 comments »

But that’s a good thing! You see, I’m a rather tech-savvy woodworker. A few months ago, I was surfing looking for woodworking community-type sites. Well, I was rather disappointed, could only find sites that specialized in forums, or products, or were somehow too narrowly focused on one topic. So I thought to myself: “Hey, I’ll build it!” Off I went, and I started to do some writing, and eventually put together a website (WoodworkDetails). It’s sti...
