When ideas come to mind, I find it imperative that I should try to work it out. The least I can do is to make a sketch or visualization of what that idea is all about, lest it goes to waste. The lowly saw horse is an example. There are many versions, from simple to complex. Some are easy to build the others require more advance skills. My version I would think is fairly easy. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624855604149/detail/ The illustrations were done with “Wing...
The beautiful Seattle Gloom has returned early this year, so it is finally time to get my Work Shop(Garage) up and running. I am going to try and document this as I go. It will be good for me to see how far I end up from my “plan”. In my experience plans are like a guide that points me in a direction. This first Post is actually made up of some “After” shots. When I started it was a total disaster that I couldn’t safely walk across. These pictures are after sp...
Taking it back to the basics… how the machine works and what type of power tools can be used on the TWC.. Let us look to Stuart Lees from Stu’s Shed. Stu … while still a hobbyist woodworker… has an engineering background ..and thus an understanding of how the TWC works and how it could be used by woodworkers as is shown by the videos he has made since he received his first TWC. Now over the last few weeks Stu has posted a few videos of the basics of the Torque Wo...
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
Here’s the pedestal attached to the base. Should make things a little clearer. The pedestal and top will be attached by a thick dowel running through the pedestal from the base to the top. As usual, comments are welcomed.
Louis cube top, half pattern in gray scale. Rubik’s cube pedestal. These are still rough, but should give an idea of where I’m heading with all this.
Greetings all. Well, the plans are coming along, but I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock. To make the Rubik’s cube pedestal I will need six different colors, and they must be different enough to stand out against each other. This could be hard to do if I stick with natural wood, so I’ve been thinking of going with a single species with a light color such as white oak or maple, then dye it. I want the grain to be obvious, so something transparent is in order, plus, to keep wi...
As you know from one of my earlier posts I met up with Bob at the Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show…The help I need is on Bob’s behalf…He posted recently about a trip he and his wife are taking and is asking for some advice….I am re-posting it here and I would appreciate any help you can give Bob…as a personal favour to me… “Hi all,My first post here but I’ve been lurking for years.Love this site and the format of the forum. The reason ...
The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...
A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK. And thinking about some of the other coments I have desided to offer the pland for the child chair. It is a very well built rocker, and balanced, and with the curved seat I have sat babys that can’t walk yet and they don’t slide out of the...
