Tool thoughts #31: Happy Birthday - the report

08-15-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 11 comments »

Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...

Lumber Supply Resource In the Midwest

12-10-2009 07:59 PM by Andy Brownell | 7 comments »

I recently came across a supply of lumber from a business here in Cincinnati, OH, Midwest Woodworking. It is owned by a second generation businessman, Frank David. The warehouse he has is probably well over 40,000 sq feet. Spread out across 2 floors are some of the longest complete boules of lumber I’ve ever seen in Sapele, Mahogany and Makore. He lets customers dig through some of the most amazing piles of lumber and pick your favorite boards. One board, or 1,000’s of bd/ft, ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1292: Ooh, La La! Look at "Paris" Now!

04-15-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I showed the new “Paris” plaque that I designed. I really enjoyed making it and I loved the simplicity of the design as well as the pretty fretwork frame. I really appreciated the nice comments that were made regarding it, as I always try to make something that is both fun to make as well as appealing. I loved the color of the natural maple that I used for the plaque. But what really had inspired me to make this plaque was one of the memory papers that I had com...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

A gift for Grandma. Well ... almost. #1: Completed, but not finished

08-15-2010 07:25 PM by NBeener | 14 comments »

My mother visited DJ and me, in April. She asked if I could build a gift box for her mother—my Gramaline. We went to the lumberyard where she and DJ picked out the woods they wanted me to use—Padauk and Maple—and a plan for the style of box they preferred. DJ preferred miniature finger joints. I ordered a new template for my P-C jig. It took a while to arrive. Then, early May came along and … something went wrong with my eyes. My Boston docs told me to sto...

In the Classroom: You, Too, Can Be Self-Employed, version 2009

05-06-2009 10:14 PM by Jay Neale III | 4 comments »

Every year my beautiful wife, Debra, takes me to school to present a talk to her reading classes at Alvarado Junior High. This talk began, in 2004, with me telling the kids all about being a graphic artist and how important reading is in that job. Since I began doing this I have stopped being a graphic artist and started being a woodworker. So, last year, I changed the talk, splitting the time between one job and the other. Since last year my business started taking off, so this year I...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #3: Cutting to size

09-19-2011 05:59 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

TopOnce I had the top glued up, I realized I really should have used some biscuits to align everything. I had some serious steps between the boards and some very visible glue lines. I made a quick cross cut sled (in about 5 minutes) and was able to trim the ends of the top. I double checked with both a combo square and my framers square and both were dead on 90s. I really needed to sand the tabletop down. The vigorous scraping had left the top surface feeling very uneven. My brothe...
