Presenting at Sin City Woodworkers Club Tonight

10-15-2014 09:35 PM by scoobydooo9r | 5 comments »

I’m pretty excited to have the chance to present at the Sin City Woodworkers meeting tonight. I’m going to be talking about casting resins, which I primarily use in turning. You could use resins in other areas of woodworking, but I see it most prevalent in turning applications. I was introduced to casting resins from the penturners.org forum. I was pretty new to pen turning, and was looking for some general info & help. Well, the problem with the internet is you look...

Outdoor Furniture #3: Adirondack Chair - Major Progress

05-21-2012 12:49 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

The Adirondack Chair project is really starting to come together. Yesterday, I got all of the straight pieces to make one complete chair cut to size and then I ran out of Douglas Fir lumber. My “Totally Awesome” daughter, Lila (age 10) surprised me by making a sandwich and delivering it to the garage when she thought I could use a break. She even used fresh picked ingredients from my garden on the sandwich! It’s nice to have daughters who like to take care of the O...

Outdoor Furniture #2: Adirondack Chair - First Photo

Like most of my projects, this one went from building “an Adirondack Chair” (as in one chair), to building seating for five. At least I’ll be ready for a BBQ on Memorial Day Weekend this year. I feel like I got a lot done today in between trips to the kid’s schools, a run to Home Depot, and some work in my vegetable gardens.

Outdoor Furniture #1: First Time Building An Adirondak Chair

05-18-2012 09:02 PM by Retsof | 0 comments »

My old patio set has seen better days. It was a pretty inexpensive set that I picked up when we lived in Phoenix fourteen years ago, so I guess I got my money’s worth out of it. Anything that last fourteen years in the Phoenix and Las Vegas sun is pretty amazing. :) I looked into the cost of replacing the slings on four chairs and a chaise lounge and I’m not sure it’s worth doing. Since I have the time and the tools, this is the perfect opportunity to take a crack at bu...

Progress Update on the Custom Steak Knife Commission Project

11-28-2007 05:30 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

Hey folks, the Wife is in town getting a piece of glass for the top of my knife display box, and so I snuck in from the shop to post an update on the progress for my custom steak knife project. This is the first set of 18 knives. I haven’t started the second set of 12 knives, so it will be a another long couple of weeks to get them finished. This first set of 18 needed to be in Las Vegas for a party this coming Saturday night, so that was a hard push to get them finished in time. Th...
