Child's Table and Chairs

06-28-2014 05:20 PM by sgmdwk | 5 comments »

It has been quite a while since I posted anything on LJ. My time has been filled with more physical activities: hiking and bicycling. Living in the Pacific Northwest, there is a lot of competition for my time. Anyway, I just finished the present I am giving to my granddaughter for her first birthday: a small table and a pair of child-sized chairs. The chairs and the table legs and skirts are made from pine; the table top from hard maple. I used a variety of joinery methods on the l...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #2: Foyer Table - bottom completed and top glued up

08-22-2014 01:10 AM by elbarneso | 2 comments »

Just a few pics and progress from this past week – I sprayed a few coats of GF pre-cat satin urethane on the base of the foyer table and glued that up. The finish turned out pretty good, although I had to resand the bottom shelf due to some bad sanding marks that I rushed and didn’t see the first time. I don’t have very good lighting in my garage, but I bought a cheap clip lamp and used it during the re-sand – I really should have bought one of these sooner, although t...

The Maloof Library Series #11: Triplets!

05-07-2012 01:25 PM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hello fellow sawdust-heads. Three lovely ladies ready to ship out in a few days. Thought you might like to see them. There are more pictures on my Facebook page. The two outer rockers are walnut, and the middle one is Tiger Maple (the quilting is awesome, even though the picture doesn’t show it). Cheers!

Tool Restores #4: Plane Cap Screw Screwdriver

06-10-2015 04:29 AM by TrBlu | 3 comments »

This is not exactly a restore. This is really more of a tool build. This is the process I followed to make my plane iron cap screw screwdrivers. The blog is a little picture heavy. Here is a link to my blog post on my wordpress blog site. https://timharvey1.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/shop-blog-cap-screw-screwdriver/ Feel free to add any comments, suggestions or questions. Thank you for visiting my shop blog.

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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #687: Stage 1 Complete

04-30-2012 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I had a decent working day yesterday. I was happy that things went the way they did, and having a good attitude about what I was doing made all the difference in the world. I think in writing yesterday about not being afraid to fail, I did well in convincing myself that it would be OK if things didn’t work out for me the first time. Also, hearing from others that I have so much admiration and respect for and seeing that they go through the same thing made me feel like it wasn’t...

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 #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

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 ...
