A rookie on the Path! #1: First Cradle

08-01-2013 01:50 AM by john111 | 2 comments »

I am building my first real piece of furniture out of ALL wood. I have made tables, beds and bakers racks, among other things, out of steel and wood with some glass. I have never used nice hardwood and made what I consider fine furniture. I have been working on this cradle for a long time. Not everyday and only a couple hours at a time. I have run into some problems a long the way and have chalked them up to just a learning curve issue. Most could have been avoided with better plannin...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #3: more turning in one day...

07-30-2007 05:44 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

To date, the most time I’ve spent at the lathe was 3 hours – and that was in a small classroom setting practing beads and coves – 1/2 the time playing and getting a feel for the tools, and the rest of the time trying to make deliberate shapes – while contantly dealing with catches. Today, I began working on my wood joinery/garden project. 1 hour of planning and cutting, 4 hours straight at the lathe! Also to date, the longest things I’ve turned came in around ...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #2: another perspective

07-29-2007 05:12 AM by scottb | 0 comments »

It’s funny how this contest challenges you to think about wood in different ways. At first you think of how to replace nails with dowels or dovetails… then as designs get too complex, the mind broadens and figures out how to strip away the clutter and simplify the design or the plan. (I’ve always been good with simplification – resume’ as it were) It finally ocurred to me, just tonight, that the baskets my sister made (we have two, a wine basket and a stair ba...

"Journeys into the Joints of Joineries" by RusticWoodArt #2: "My Ghost of a Past"

06-10-2007 06:11 PM by frank | 1 comment »

My Ghost of a Past ....and so yes, for any and all that have been reading here and are waiting for more on the series “Journeys into the Joints of Wood Joineries” ....these articles, will be forthcoming from time to time. I am thinking of how to approach this subject, however I am no expert and not much of a technical writer and really dis-like writing on subjects that press me into the thinking confines of a box…. There was a time when I thought and lived in a box, I rec...

Homework #1: Hitting the books

03-25-2009 06:09 AM by JimmyNate | 2 comments »

I stopped by the library this week and picked up a few books on tools. The goal is to educate myself sufficiently that I know what I’ll want to be doing with the tools. This week the selections are: Jim Tolpin’s Table Saw MagicGreat for my intended purpose. The first 45 pages are nothing but the basics: types of saws, setup, tune-up, upkeep. The rest of the book (the bulk of it) is devoted to the myriad uses of a table saw and while details are occasionally thin, there ar...

wood joinery / garden contest entry #1: my challenge

07-29-2007 05:08 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

Ah, life. It’s what happens while you’re busy making other plans. I had (ok, still have) a great idea for both contests. Yes, two birds with one stone. And what was even better, was that it required only small amounts of time and attention, spread out over the duration of the contest. It was required actually. As I would be turning pieces of green wood, and needed to stagger the assembly, so as the pieces could dry gradually and mother nature could do the joinery for me. No need f...

screws

ever want to say – to hell with the high fahlutin joinery – and just screw the dang project together? i’m close people – real close – to doing just that. well, not really. just maybe a little. maybe. a bit. they’ll be unseen. i mean, they’re screws, there is a serious skill level involved. right? getting them straight, allowing for wood movement, choosing the right ones, placement, yadda yadda yadda. what if i put them in by hand? would...
