Walnut Platform Bed #5: Making the bed head have a Japanese flair

08-17-2012 09:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

Today I cut the curve by bending a stick between three screws and drew a line on paper to make a half pattern. After cutting on the bandsaw and planing/sanding the curve, I mounted it about an inch above the bed head. Tomorrow we’ll see about attaching the bed head to the bed rails. Then mucho sanding, layers of tongue oil and later the lighting installation. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #447: Lots of Stories - It Was a Busy Day!

08-31-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, I can’t wait to get at things today. There is so much to do and it seems like so little time to do it. I don’t feel stressed at all though, only exhilarated. It is the good kind of busy that people like me strive for, and depending on how things go, the next few weeks should be quite productive. I always seem to have stories to tell and today isn’t any different. Although yesterday started out simple enough, the day brought with it some interesting things that m...

Incidental Fermat Projects #5: Kids in the Hall

04-09-2013 03:17 AM by vipond33 | 9 comments »

A trivial piece in a way, an often unseen piece, even by me, one of my favourites. When the routine sheet goods come in the back door, usually unloaded piece by piece, every grain pattern of every piece is admired or at the very least registered. Once in a while though you pause, gobsmacked. Then it gets tucked off to the side hoping the job won’t need it and later you offhandedly ask to buy just the one, thanks. One cabinet from 100% of one maple board. maybe a good challenge for...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #22: Which came first....!

08-04-2008 03:48 AM by frank | 6 comments »

Which came first....! ....and so there remains a question that has been posed to me….which I shall attempt in some feeble way to exploit some light upon. It has been asked: Does art imitate nature....? or Does nature imitate art....? WOW! What a power pack of a question or either the shadow of thinking that would tend to describe and inscribe me within a box. Can any answer this question or is the question it-self designed, to limit an answer within the fabric of two popu...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...

Simple Writing Desk #1: Working my way through

04-18-2012 10:04 PM by Rick | 1 comment »

I started out with a bunch of sycamore. It’s been sitting in my garage now for a year. I finally started to make use of it. A sample with one end shellac, one end Arm-R-Seal My wife is in need of a desk, but we wanted something simple. She said she didn’t even want a drawer. So we measured, and started on a couple boards. The boards had some twist. I spent a lot of time getting that out. I tried ripping one board on the bandsaw, then jointing one of the rips. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #778: Timing Is Everything

08-03-2012 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a project is nothing. But that can also be the most difficult part of the process when you are anxious to see the outcome, or are on a schedule to get it finished. There have been many times when I have been guilty of rushing through something that I am making for one reason or another and I come to regret it. But as I get older (and supposedly wiser) and have more experience, I find that rushing through part of the process to finish is more often t...

Cutting Board Finish

11-11-2012 03:59 AM by thecarpentershands | 7 comments »

I recently tried my hand at an end grain cutting board with some scraps lying around. I also have been commissioned to build a butcher block style cutting board. As these are the first cutting boards I’ve ever done, I don’t know what exactly what I should do for the finish. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to finish cutting boards? Thanks and God bless!
