Kids Workbench Build #6: It Has Legs!! Well... Two Of Them..

09-08-2014 02:43 AM by Airframer | 9 comments »

Yet another weekend and yet another couple days of shop time with the boy working on his bench. I have been trying to sneak in there as much as I can without him to kinda skip ahead a bit. I am not sure he has the attention span for a drawn out workbench build (ahem Stef.. ) so we need to get this thing moving lol. It all started on Saturday with the through mortises for the front legs. I was luckily able to get the oh so boooring job of laying out the mortises done while he was napping...

Kids Workbench Build #3: Things are starting to come together now.

08-16-2014 06:15 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

My new apprentice is visiting his grandma this morning so I took advantage of the time to get the top out of the clamps and cleaned up (long planing sessions is an activity he still doesn’t have the patience for lol). I will need to have a serious talk with him on his glueup skills (Ahem.. yep tossing dimes all over the place here).... In “our” rush the other day we glued the top up about as uneven as it would have been humanly possible to do so quite a bit of work was a...

Kids in the Shop! #9: 11 Months in the Shop Together- May

05-28-2014 01:06 AM by clieb91 | 8 comments »

Ok, somehow I lost a month almost 2. I have not been around here much but I promise I have been in the shop and so has my daughter. This month she has been hard at work in the shop as she got herself orders for a total of 8 pens. She is working on a the 5 for one order now. As I have said before she is getting better each time she steps up. My goal is for her to surpass me in the future :) She also has a possible client that would like to buy pens from her to sell at a local farm st...

Random Updates #1: It's been a while, LJ's!

05-19-2014 03:57 PM by SalvageCraft | 2 comments »

It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on LJ’s and a very busy couple years for me. As you can see in the pic below, I’ve missed about thirty thousand posts on ‘Handplanes of your dreams’, and about twenty seven thousand posts on Stumpy’s epic monopost! In the past couple years since my last post I’ve gone through a separation, moved twice, bought a house, gotten married and now have an amazing stepdaughter the same age as my biol...

Kids in the Shop! #8: 11 Months in the Shop Together- March

03-30-2014 01:18 PM by clieb91 | 9 comments »

Well it has been a productive month in the shop for my daughter. She has tackled some pieces for her dollhouse that she wanted to make on her own. The first was a small easy chair and yesterday we worked on two beds. The chair was her idea and came straight from the scrap bin, at this point the miter box is the easiest way for her to work on cutting the scraps she has been using and she is happy to be using it, just working on those muscles. :) The chair consisted of just two pieces...

Kids in the Shop! #7: Real simple= Real Happy

03-05-2014 02:49 AM by clieb91 | 8 comments »

Well it was just another snow day here. I am sure a lot of you are familiar with those this winter. While I was working on a few things in the shop my daughter decided she wanted to do something as well. She is a big fan of the Doc McStuffins cartoons and decided she needs to have a clinic as well. For those of you not familiar it is on Disney Jr. and the character takes care of toys in her clinic in the backyard. Since my daughter’s yard is more in the basement she decided to turn her ...

Kids in the Shop! #6: 11 Months in the Shop Together- History

02-17-2014 07:42 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

A little bit of history regarding my daughter’s time in the shop. Some of you may have already seen a lot of this but I wanted to gather it up a bit and use it to start the new blog series as it kind of shows how we got to this point. For starters, my daughter is currently 7 year’s old. She has been working with me in the shop since she was 3. She helped with little things of course like putting screws in and of course some hammering. Before anyone says something, I know she was not...

Kids in the Shop! #5: 11 Months in the Shop Together- The beginning

02-17-2014 07:40 PM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

Ok so as some of you already know my daughter enjoys working in the shop either with me and more and more on her own with little projects. I of course encourage here to do this for many reasons besides just spending time with me. It is helping her to learn problem solving skills, learn math skills, and learn physical skills as well that are helping her to use her hands more and get a bit more strength in them as well as improve motor skills. Between the two of us we have decided to do (at ...

Kids in the Shop! #4: Tis the Season #3

12-30-2013 01:23 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Well Sophia had a number of Christmas Presents to finish this year on the lathe. She finished her last 2 up today. She is getting very good at the lathe and I am quite happy and thrilled with how she is doing. We have been going over the ABC's I will post her projects in a Project post. She did much of the work on all of them this year. I am still assisting with wiping the projects off with a bit of mineral spirits and also some of the fine tuning. But she will be there soon. My...
