As many of my fellow LJs must know, a huge amount of decorative cutting board projects have been posted here and they are mostly very decorative and one would hesitate you actually use the item as a cutting board in order to preserve the surface. Most likely they would not be used for cutting, but as a decorative item or a wall hanging like a not hit dart board. I did a lot of research into cutting boards and found original designs listed in a medieval parchment at the Smithsonian. These ...
Probably better in Home refurbers but I’m on LJ’s so the project is here and under blog because it’s not a specific woodworking project. Some of my acquaintances on LJ’s have been asking where I’ve been. Well I’ve been lurking lately and I’ve been busy for about 10 weeks. A young couple in the area had the shell for a house put up and asked me to finish off the interior. It was basically a blank slate. They had the sheetrocking done and someone ha...
Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

I started this project quite along time ago. Takes along time to make anything from rough cut wood. But here is bottom of the hutch still in clamps. Back of it: Another side view:

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers
My home was built with white 6 panel hollow core interior doors. I have long hated them. Thus this project was born. I also hate cheap brass lock sets and hinges. (On a side note I hate my builder – no one takes pride in their work anymore) I know that my doors are all Mastercraft. I started by purchasing a Mastercraft 6-panel Oak door. I scrapped the frame, finished the door and hung it. I did this to avoid the need to drill the lock set hole and mortise the hinges. I considered ...
Over the winter I’ve been taking a project class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. We’ve built the Arts and Crafts Display Case that was designed by FW Art Director Mike Pekovich and on the cover of FW in April 2010. Bob Van Dyke, the director of CVSW, taught the class. It was so popular that he had 2 sections of about 10 students each. My case is made of QSWO, but others selected cherry or walnut. The class is over and my case is nearly complete. I sp...
