Just for Fun... #35: Feeling Better!!

10-27-2010 02:37 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

I started feeling lousy a little over three weeks ago… woke up one Monday morning with a chill that I just couldn’t shake. I don’t know if it was a cold, or the flu, or what, but I haven’t felt “normal” until this week…I didn’t even have any specific symptoms, and it wasn’t a knockdown, drag-’em-out thing either, I just had the blahs… didn’t feel like Woodworking… I didn’t even feel like hanging out here on LJ...

Quest for a bigger TV #8: Nearing the end

10-26-2010 07:13 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

After having this new TV Entertainment Center project going on in my shop for over 2 months we were getting near the end. We installed the custom milled baseboard on all three pieces. Sanded them all the was to 180 and then started the finishing process. The first step was to take all of the doors and drawers out and remove all of the hardware. That was a monumental task in itself. There are a lot of hinges, knobs and slides on this thing. I am not sure I have mentioned it before, b...

Quest for a bigger TV #7: Bookcase Doors

10-25-2010 06:12 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

This series has been about re-creating an existing wall entertainment unit to accomidate a larger TV for my parents. In the 2 side bookcases there were doors that have glass panels in them. My Dad took up the task of re-creating these glass panels himself. He located an Art Glass store in Minneapolis where he could purchase all of the supplies and equipment needed to create these glass panels. They are true divided light windows with brass caming. He spent about a month perfecting the ...

Quest for a bigger TV #2: The Design

10-20-2010 02:49 PM by JBfromMN | 1 comment »

Dad Said he wanted a bigger TV and to do so required a bigger Entertainment Center. He really liked the style of the one he had, but just wanted it bigger. So around Christmas of 09, when the picture was taken, we looked at what he had and what it would take to build a bigger one. We also had to evaluate the tool situation. Now I already had the Ridgid Trio from Dad’s in my Garage. The Table Saw, the Jointer and the Surface Planer. The only saw blades I had were the 40t that...

Quest for a bigger TV #1: So we want to get a bigger TV

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by JBfromMN | 4 comments »

I thought I would share with you all my Fathers quest to get a larger TV. Now what does this have to do with woodworking you ask….. Well you see the Entertainment Center my parents had is a 3 piece set they purchased at Home Furniture several years ago. It is a nice system, the problem lies that is does not really have the room for the newer large flat screen TVs. My parents had a 32 inch CRT tv in there that JUST barely fits. My dad wanted to get a flat sceen TV but the larges...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #138: Getting the Picture

10-19-2010 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am glad that yesterday is behind me. I am not (really) complaining, but it is good that today is a new day and will be much less tedious than yesterday. It wasn’t disastrous or anything like that, but it was just the kind of day where it seemed that I had to work much harder than usual to achieve not greatness, but mediocrity. I don’t mind working that hard for greatness. In that case, the end results is its own reward. I worked much harder yesterday than I did on the day w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #137: Almost There

10-18-2010 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I am quite proud of how things worked out yesterday. It feels wonderful when things actually work out how they are supposed to. I spent the day cutting for the most part and by 4pm I had not one but two new trays cut out. When I was writing about it yesterday morning, I was wondering if I would be able to accomplish it. After the Wright tray taking so long, my confidence in myself was a bit shaken. Not in the sense if I was able to do it or not but in the time line. Both patterns went...
