My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #242: A Variety of Designs Nearly Completed

01-31-2011 03:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

The weekend was quite a blur. It seemed that just about every waking moment was spent working on the four new trays. As with most projects, it seemed to take a bit more time than I had anticipated. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. It would only be bad if they came out crummy. I am happy with the results (so far) and in the home stretch on everything. I hadn’t decided to do four additional trays for the catalog deadline until about last Tuesday either. The original dead...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #12: Working on the Finish

01-31-2011 05:48 AM by Don | 9 comments »

The more I looked at the tops the less I liked how much lighter they were than the rest of the tables. I decided to go ahead and dye the tops according to the instructions. I’m really glad I did, the tops are blending much better and I’m really liking the way dye looks compared to stains. I may even dye the rest of the table to get it all to blend together better. I normally love the varience of colors in wood when it’s finished naturally but in this case I think it distract...

Weekend Wall Shelf

01-30-2011 05:49 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 11 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Without a doubt, this is one of those “procrastination projects”. For years, Nicole has been after me to build her a little shelf near our gaming desk. She has a bunch of little collectibles that she wants to display and there’s simply no storage space in that corner of the room. On a monthly basis, she would remind me of this need and even resorted to threats: “You know, Lowe’s has th...

Hand made radius inlay banding

01-25-2011 04:46 AM by Les Hastings | 10 comments »

We needed six pieces of radius tulipwood inlays for this project. They were going to cost around $1200.00 to get them. There was a 100 piece minimum of each radius. So I spent about four hours and made my own. See the wolf? Didn’t see it until I was all done, it just kind of happened. Thanks for looking and have fun woodworking!

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #11: Almost there...

01-24-2011 06:00 AM by Don | 6 comments »

All that’s left is drawer pulls, the bottom shelfs, and a few more coats of finish. I decicded to stick with a natural finish and I’m glad I did but the tops came out way lighter than the rest of it. I will probobly put some dye on it to help it blend better. Here’s one of the tables with the first coat of finish:

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #10: No more Plugs!

01-17-2011 01:31 AM by Don | 7 comments »

I’ve got all the holes and plugs cut and if I never have to cut another Greene and Greene style plug again I’ll be very happy… Just kidding, I love the way these look and I will be doing more projects in this style. It is really nice to be able relax and listen to music while I work instead of machinery for a change but they do get really tedious after a while. Next time I’m going to make a few everytime I’m in the shop instead of waiting until the end and having...

Wood Gloat

01-17-2011 12:46 AM by superstretch | 7 comments »

Almost a year ago I went to an estate auction where they were selling off loads of wood on the ground. I had my dad’s truck and since no one was bidding on them, I left with 5 loads of wood for $1 each. I even made my money back by selling a 1”x1”x48” piece of curly maple for $10. The 5 loads went over the bedrails of the truck and some pieces of butternut extended another 10’ past the back. I was out in my barn tonight taking some pictures of some saw...

A little Box of Sunshine

01-15-2011 08:20 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 21 comments »

It is amazing how something can brighten not only your day but also the future. We had just got back from the clinic where I had the procedure wound from Tuesday’s hospital visit to have an IV port installed, it had to be cleaned and redressed. As we came to the house entrance, Sandra noticed a plastic bag with something in it hanging on our rural mailbox. Sandra’s first words were “Now what other tool did you order” but I told her I had not ordered anything (si...

Walnut Sofa Table #1: The Design

01-10-2011 10:00 AM by Thomas Keefe | 0 comments »

I was recently contracted by my wife to design and build a sofa table for our den. This describes the design of the table. As I receive no monetary remuneration for this contract and I live in the house too, I have some design input. However, I was limited to some constraints: (1) Dimensions must be roughly 6’ long and no more than 12” wide; (2) Simple design; and (3) Moderate cost. My goals were to please my customer and try out a new beading plane I recently bought (an old Stanl...
