My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #234: A Rocky Start - But It Will Get Better, Right?

01-23-2011 03:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Today is already one of ‘those days’. Within the first hour of getting out of bed, I already found several mishaps that I had to deal with. First of all, I came to my computer to read my mail and I noticed my Wacom pen tablet wasn’t working. At first I thought nothing of it, as the USB plug sometimes pulls out a bit and just needs to be pushed in. But that wasn’t the case. Upon further inspection, I realized that my cat Coco had chewed through the wire. She goe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #232: Cutting on New Trays Completed

01-21-2011 03:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I spent most of the day yesterday cutting out the two new candle trays. I can honestly say that it was quite a pleasure to do so. Many times people say that they wouldn’t want to do woodworking for a living because it will take the fun out of it. I can see their point, but for myself, it is an extra bonus to be able to get paid for doing something that you absolutely love to do. I suppose that is why I am here. :) There are so many different aspects to the business of woodworking t...

Carved, "Methodist Flames" 3"thick x 4'-0" wide x 14'-0" long

01-20-2011 02:42 AM by Dennis Zongker | 34 comments »

We have the honor of creating these beautiful Methodist flames to be placed on the back wall, behind the sanctuary stage. Constructed of solid red oak hardwoods, the overall sizes of the flames are 3” thick by 48”wide and 168” long. The oak was glued together at different angles, to create a unique woodgrain appearance. Hand shaping and carved using a power grinder to create the flame motif. Stained with a red aniline dye and finished with a pre-catalyzed furniture fin...

Lauren's Bed #1: A Start to the Modified Captain's Bed for Lauren

01-19-2011 06:57 AM by Jesse Schutt | 0 comments »

I’ve been slowly working on building a modified captain’s bed for my 3 year old daughter. I thought I’d document some of the progress here. It’s been a fun project so far and my wife is itching for me to get it completed. This is the initial concept that I came up with after seeing a similar bed in a local furniture store. Lauren’s room isn’t very large, so having some storage under the bed is really a bonus. Lauren outgrew her crib and small b...

My first blog… so I reserve the right to screw it up :) This is the start of a huge project, basically finishing the lower level of our atrium home. I have a lot under way but will catch you up over the next few days so subscribe now! First lets take a look at the entrance to my woodshop. These doors are 2×4 framed with reclaimed barn siding. I made the cultured stone myself and plan on ordering a nice set of authentic iron forged hardware for them. Will be complete with rive...

Oak in a Cutting Board?

01-08-2011 04:53 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 8 comments »

Oak is not recommended for end grain cutting boards and I am guessing that is because the end grain is so porous that bacteria could collect and grow. NOW, if you use the wiping varnish method wouldn’t that theoretically seal the pores preventing an opening for bacteria to collect?

Beads Box #8: Drawers Construction

01-02-2011 04:14 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Today I was able to resaw some 3/4” boards to make the 3/8” (slightly less) material for the drawers, cut the parts, and joinery, and put it all together for a dry fit. I had originally planned on having 9 individual drawers in the center compartment, but for lack of materials and time, I ended up making 3 large drawers and I’ll put dividers in those and see how it goes, for ease of use it might be better to make 3 smaller boxes for each drawer so that each one can be tak...

Christmas projects #1: Christmas Presents.

12-27-2010 07:29 PM by tt1106 | 4 comments »

Well, I missed the Christmas deadline, but my daughters were still very pleased. My wife and I decided and told everybody last year that we were only giving gifts that we made. This was prompted by my daughters (3) all asking for shopping money. It was important to my wife and I that they know what the true meaning of Christmas is and to be thnakful for the many gifts they have been blessed with over the years. Namely, never going hungry….always having a roof over their heads…e...
