Outdoor Furniture #11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued

06-17-2012 05:23 PM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons. In this photo, I’ve finished the sanding all the parts, have the tenons glued into the legs, and have the panels installed. Now they are starting to look like planters. One of the changes I ma...

Exercises in Artisanship #17: Old fashioned tool tote Part 5 THE FINALE!!

06-13-2012 10:33 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well I guess through learning and creating, sawing and shaving there were a few more hours to conjureup some additional ideas with my chisel box. Ahhh yes…a lid for the top perhaps??.....this would be a total ad lib affair with little more than just letting the inner kid out to explore and experiment. Every now and then that is such a vital important exercise to have in our woodwork…..be free of worries…the crayons going out of the lines are no artistic sin, only stressfu...

Reminders of the past

06-10-2012 02:32 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Isn’t funny how some smells remind you of things from your past. As it turns out the scent of red elm reminds me of my late Great Uncles Barn. He owned the family farm that dated back to the 1800s and it had the original barn until just about 15 years ago. As a boy my cousin and I would play in the lofts and at the time I didn’t know it but that wood it was made of must have been elm because when I cut this red elm it reminded me of that old barn. Enough of that! I was able to put seven hour...

Fathers Day

06-09-2012 12:09 PM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I was caught of guard this week when I realized that Father’s day is next Sunday and I had just picked up the wood on Tuesday for an antique reproduction garden bench that I am building for my father. My parents have an old park bench sitting out front of their house that my pop sits on every morning waiting for the paper boy to show up. Well I have repaired the slats that routed on it once all ready and when they told me that it needed a couple more this year I decide that it was time to re...

Making a Cello #4: Finally a Joint!

06-08-2012 04:18 PM by PhiltheLuthier | 1 comment »

It has been a little longer than expected but here I am. I won’t bore you with my excuses, rather I’ll show you the little progress I’ve made over that time. Yesterday I set up to do the back joint. This joint is roughly a meter long, by 32mm wide, and is vital because in the end, after all the carving, it’ll lose about 98% percent of it’s glued area while still required to hold two boards each about 23 cm wide, together ad that under about 200lbs (oops where&...

Exercises in Artisanship #16: Old fashioned tool tote Part 4

06-07-2012 10:53 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

Well friends the day has finally arrived….where I am going to have a decent spot to either carry or hold my stanely chisels….lol. I have had these chisels on one table or another realizing that they needed a proper home in the shop. I thought since I was putting together this traveling tool tote of carpentry instruments….chisels would be well in order for many a task…....so I took a creative chance on making a space for them! Along with that I thought why not a hand...

I'm Back!!!

06-07-2012 12:50 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 7 comments »

I have been away recently because I have been so busy on projects lately but I am going to post them right now. The projects are an end grain cutting board made for mahogany and oak, a small stool made entirely from hand tools and a new and improved chisel and screwdriver rack (at least compared to my old one) using my kreg jig i got for my birthday and a great way to store wood in a shed workshop without putting up shelves or losing floor space.
