Built-In Library Wall #3: Project within a Project - Cabinet Doors

03-21-2013 02:35 PM by Cindy Braunheim | 0 comments »

How in the world did over 200 days pass by since my last entry?! Wow. Yes – I’m still working on this project. Yes – the clients are still my very good friends (bless them!). Yes – I still look forward to Sundays in my “shop”. The carcasses are done and have been hanging out in my (still unfinished) master closet. The base cabinet has been the focal point of the wall, so I have been diligent and careful in the milling and assembly ...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

A Special Lamp for a Special Lady #3: Made In The Shade

10-05-2012 12:34 AM by William | 13 comments »

I only got about an hour of shop time yesterday. Therefore I did not make a post. I just didn’t think it was enough to warrant one. All I done was make a hexagon block as a riser and installed the lamp kit.Here’s what it looks like. Now on to today’s festivities.It was time to start on the shade. Here is where I found my first real sign of trouble for this project.For the maple panels I plan on using for the shade, this is the effect I was hoping for. This is cottonwood s...

Leonard Street Workshop #7: 6,000 BF of maple. wow!

03-06-2011 04:38 AM by tyskkvinna | 12 comments »

I told you I had a lot of maple coming soon. the boards are about 2” wide (2 1/4”, but I believe that includes the T&G), 4/4 thick and varied lengths. That room is 20’ x 40’—only about 5’ of it doesn’t have any planks. The pile is roughly 5-6’ tall. With various amounts of help, I pulled these up from the floor and then moved them into this room. They will then get processed and sold. If you need some maple, LET ME KNOW! ...

Workbench #1: New workbench getting started

08-05-2011 04:02 AM by MedicKen | 6 comments »

Now that I have a table saw again its time to get going on a few projects. First on the list is a new workbench. It will be solid maple that I picked up from fellow LJ, John Ormsby a little over a year ago. John had some really nice 8/4 kiln dried maple at a good price so I came with about 500bf. More than enough for a bench. I pulled some of the maple out today and got started milling it up for the legs. The wood was nice and flat and really didn’t need to be jointed. So, I didnR...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1495: Micro-Cutting

02-11-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Everybody likes a challenge now and then. I know that when I challenge myself, I not only usually learn something new, but I grow as an artist and designer. If I don't push myself into doing something that is a bit out of my comfort zone, then things start to lose their excitement. Sometimes it is hard to take the time to challenge yourself when you are self-employed. It seems that we are working from deadline to deadline, and it is easy to slip into the habit of taking the path of l...

bench vice and starting out

04-21-2014 11:21 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #1: The beginning

02-27-2015 04:27 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I have always wanted to build a Gerstner style wooden tool box but the drawers were designed more for a machinist than woodworking. The project has stayed on the backburner for a long time. A few months ago i saw a picture and downloaded an article from FWW on the Essential Toolbox by Mike Pekovich. I had built a wall cabinet based on his design earlier and found that the design lent itself very well to personalizing it. The toolchest design seemed to be the same way. I really wanted a th...
