Starting My Business #1: Building up Inventory

05-03-2011 09:57 AM by ChrisCrafts | 3 comments »

It’s 12:30 AM and I am up with my 9 year old who has his very first experience with the stomach flu. Poor kid has only missed 3 days of school in his life. When he called today and asked to come home I was out the door in 30 seconds. I figured if he was asking to come home it must be something serious. Alright so here we go! After finally getting my Shop up and running it is time to see if I can pay for my hobby by selling the stuff I make. I have registered the website and hav...

Entertainment Center #3: The Face Frame

05-02-2011 02:09 AM by Marc | 0 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. Getting back into the swing of things with this project gave me the opportunity to finally mount my new Freud Diablo blades in both my table saw and my miter saw. I needed both blades for the project this time because I was ripping down some of the maple hardwood on the table saw and then cutting the face fra...

Entertainment Center #2: The Carcass Revisited

05-02-2011 02:04 AM by Marc | 0 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. Well, some four and a half months ago I started building a proper entertainment center for our basement. I have now been told if the entertainment center isn’t finished by June my wife will be going out and buying one, so I am back at it. If you check out the first post for this project you may look at these ...

Hollow Form Turning - A Trifern Class #2: Wood Selection

04-28-2011 11:02 PM by trifern | 14 comments »

Wood Selection Almost every hollow form I turn is from local hardwoods and is turned green. Why use green wood? Green wood is relatively inexpensive, easy to obtain, and easy to turn. It is nearly impossible to find, or afford, large kiln dried wood suitable for turning large pieces. Construction sites, firewood cutters, arborists, and landscape recycling centers are all excellent sources for wood. The biggest problem I have with green wood is my greed. I bring home more wood than I can...

Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...

Improved Workbench #2: Design and Beginning Construction

04-26-2011 05:47 PM by Brian024 | 10 comments »

Finally getting some work started on this build. In this video I go over the design of the bench, lumber selection/layout, and I begin work on the top. I know my method for gluing the top would have been easier with a biscuit joiner, but since the one I have is a piece of junk, I go this route.

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...
