Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #1: Preparing the Wood

11-25-2011 08:11 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

This series of posts will show how I made four condiment totes for a local restaurant. I’m going to show most steps from rough wood to finished product. Most of you will find this basic, but hopefully I can help some beginners see how things are put together. The restaurant wanted holders for ketchup, mustard, relish and vinegar that the waitresses or waiters could take to the table with them. (In Canada, some of us like white vinegar on our fries. On my trips to the U. S., I hav...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #526: On the Road Again . . .

11-18-2011 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be brief (for me!) because we are heading out soon. We discovered that there is this huge craft show in Wolfville at Acadia University this weekend and we thought we would scout it out. The link to the show is Here It looks like a really cool event. The booth prices are nearly $300 which is mighty steep, and it is $6 to get in the door, but we hope that means that it will be a lot of quality stuff will be there. This is not a flea market! So we are loading ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #524: The Challenge

11-16-2011 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am trying not to feel overwhelmed at this point. Even though it is only Wednesday, it seems like the week was already six days long. To say I have been busy is an understatement, and even though that is a very good thing, I just need to not let it all get to me. I find myself with my head in many different directions again. Magazine, wholesalers, website, painting, etc. It makes me think of the stereotype of a three ringed circus with action going on everywhere. None of this is bad,...

Entryway Bench #2: More Assembly, Old-Growth Pine Milling

11-15-2011 05:54 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

FrameI finally got some more work done on the entryway bench.. I anchored the seat frame to the walls and then constructed the legs cut and screwed in underneath. I originally wanted to make the entire thing out of beams and barn boards that I had outside.. but simplicity triumphed and I resorted to 2×4s. In the long run, I think they’ll stand up better and would hold to the walls without the screws pulling through. — Seat/StorageAs you can see from the pictures...

52 Weeks #44: Prebuilt furniture and Miscellaneous fun in the shop

11-14-2011 03:33 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Well after the past few hectic weeks of trying to get stuff finished up for the craft fair I took the time to I had this week to just have some fun and play with a few things in my shop. My weekend started with a bit of furniture assembly and disassembly, though not pieces made by me. The wife and I went furniture shopping last weekend to look for a new recliner for her and just to see what else we could find. Well we wound up buying 3 items. A recliner, a desk chair for me that was on clear...

Wood SCORE!!!

11-07-2011 09:34 PM by YBNORMAL | 13 comments »

This story starts off sad, but ends happily for me at least. A local sawyer passed away last month and the family is having trouble getting rid of all the “STUFF” he has acuminated in his long lifetime. One of the items that they were particularly interested in liquidating was his inventory of wood. LOTS OF WOOD. This gentleman had several large warehouses full of lumber of different kinds. Thousands upon Thousands of board foot of Cyprus, cherry, heart pine, SYP, white oak, r...

This Week In the Shop #8: Tool Box

10-31-2011 05:02 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

The new tool box at work. It’s not a pretty thing, but the design has a long gestation. Chris Schwarz has been promoting his conversion to hand tools for years now – and he finally documents the slow spiral in “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest”. He’s got a book, I guess I have a blog. Either way, I decided on a 24″ by 18″ by 18″ dovetailed box. The moldings and bottoms were nailed and glued on, while the top has a split piano hinge as it’s method of movement. Most of the dovetails are ...
