and then it becomes....... #4: Austin

11-09-2008 04:34 AM by kolwdwrkr | 6 comments »

Well in my little world things change on a regular basis. As I said before I don’t make drawings, and if I do it’s because the project is well on it’s way and I’m caught between liking it and not. So I draw it to see it. Normally I make changes from that point. Well there’s been a change in this project. I seemed to have found myself at Austin Hardwoods today looking to purchase some more Bubinga. Well as fate would have it there was a pile of Padauk next t...

Corner Bookcase "Lazy Susan, Rotating Center", Challange 04

Hello All, Here’s my attempt at entering the Bookcase Challenge. My plans are for a Corner Bookcase Unit, with a Rotating Center Section. It will be constructed in two sections, Top and Bottom. These will be subdivided into three (3) sections, with the two (2) outer areas having Solid Oak framed Glass Doors with a golden color grill work attatched. The Top Middle Area will be the Rotating Lazy Susan Bookcase, it will be primarily of four (4) sections. Two larger areas for ...

Bookcase Challenge

03-28-2008 03:51 AM by CanadianWoodChuck | 9 comments »

Hi All I just finished playing with my Sketchup drawing for the bookcase challenge. I’m really enjoying using sketchup for my conceptual drawings. I’m so glad that LJ comes up with these ideas, it gives me a great chance to play in Sketchup. If I was to build this bookcase I would love to use Oak veneer core plywood for the carcus, oak trim where required and a contrasting wood like padauk for the face frames. This huge bookcase would cover an area of approximately 5̵...

Wood Scrap Box #2: Measure twice, cut once

01-24-2008 12:44 AM by CutNRun | 7 comments »

I actually measured very carefully three times; the bottom of the dado would be precisely 3 15/16” from the end of the board. I carefully routed all four dadoes, stopping at the right spot. Then I looked as the spacing, relative to the other grooves. What happened? I measured from the end of the board – exactly 3 15/16”. I looked again at my full scale plans and the measurements I had calculated – 3 5/16”! Dooh! Exact comments are deleted to maintain a fam...

Segmented Pen

01-16-2008 12:28 AM by Kerux | 7 comments »

My version of Ron McIntire’s segmented pen. This just happens to be the way I do it… that best fits how I think through the process. I’m sure there are many other variables in getting the same end. First of all I make a checkerboard blank. The one in this Tutorial is Paduak and Maple. (It works best with contrasting colors). The next step is to cut the sections in equal sizes. I made a ‘zero tolerance’ jig for my miter saw that helps me cut all the sections. In order...

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

11-22-2007 07:08 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...
