Bread Board (s) #1: Recovering the Lumber - or - how I leant to love bowling alley flooring

10-02-2010 04:42 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

OK, so now that the kitchen challenge is all over, I guess it’s a good time to post a blog regarding kitchen items … or… hold on… um – oops. too late. Oh well, I guess I’ll blog this anyways. So, the plan is to make a bread board. for the time being, the design shall remain unseen and will reveal in details as this blog series will progress. The board is primarily made of hard maple that I am recovering from bowling alley floors (I still have about ha...

Just for Fun... #34: Time to make it shiny...

10-01-2010 03:41 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

With all the trouble I had making the top for this small table, the wrap-up was utterly anti-climatic. I was determined to attach the legs with carriage bolts when the top was completed, and so I did…First I clamped the legs one by one, along with the “Sandwiches” (and some scraps to protect the piece!) in place and hand drilled a 1/4” hole through the lot of them…Insert the bolt, tighten the nut over the washer, and these are on there strong enough for me to sta...

Just for Fun... #33: Too much Enthusiasm=More Work!!

09-30-2010 10:35 AM by littlecope | 17 comments »

Simple, Quick, Easy… It seems like I always start projects with these notions! In the event, however, they never turn out that way…It has been a while, almost two weeks, but the project is still the same, a small table for computer viewing/breakfast in bed. When we last visited this affair it was in this state…I took apart the top once again, and ran all the pieces over the jointer to clean them up…This was a huge mistake, a real bonehead move, and the worst part is I ...

Wine Bottle Holder (Kitchen Challenge CS1)

09-30-2010 04:08 AM by Heidi Neely | 32 comments »

Creating this project was fun, because it was a combined effort that Keith and I made together. I wanted a wine bottle holder for our kitchen, but after looking in stores and online I couldn’t find one that I really liked. So, thinking like a LJ I decided to design one myself, and asked Keith if it was something we could do as a weekend project together. This is my original pencil drawing showing the design I came up with: Next, I came up with a design for the carvings we would ...

CS1 End Grain Cutting Board

09-30-2010 02:49 AM by Scott Bryan | 14 comments »

Well I finally decided to join the cutting board club and this project completes my membership requirements. Now I am waiting for one of you charter members to send me the secret handshake. :) I needed to come up with something for my wife since her birthday is coming up this weekend. It basically boiled down to building her something or taking her shopping for clothes. To tell the honest truth I would much rather be spending time in the shop rather than sitting in a chair while she sp...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

bandsaw #7: Getting Better

09-18-2010 05:13 AM by twokidsnosleep | 4 comments »

Long day at work doing precision work (3 root canals, bunch of fillings, implant impression, lots of looking through microscope loupes…..) time to do something BIG with my hands and the bandsaw!! So tonight was the night to let the timberwolf howl! I have been tinkering and practicing with pine to dial in the GO555P, adjust the resaw fence and figure out blade drift. I cut some maple and pear that I bought to do a tea box for my mom, but have been too chicken to hack into it until I g...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #105: A Silver Lining After a Dismal Day

09-16-2010 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a day where things just don’t go right. I know we have all had those days, and it was just my turn apparently. I wasn’t any one thing in particular. Just a lot of little things that added up I guess. I did get all my cutting done, and that was a good part of the day. But in between cutting there were several messages that weren’t what I called positive. I can see my computer screen from where I cut, and I check in on messages every on...

Fishing Nets Made My Way

09-08-2010 11:47 PM by Greg | 8 comments »

I wanted to share my experiences in making landing nets with you. This is from an article I wrote for the August 2010 edition of On The Fly, the newsletter for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. Building the Perfect Landing NetBy Greg Madrigal Like many of you, I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Growing up with 5 sisters left our family with little to no money most of the time. Work for my father was hard to come by growing u...
