DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

I have been following a few blogs Here on Lumberjocks for quite a while now … these blogs are pertaining to the Craft Markets and those who attend..some are real veterans like closetguy and have many stories to tell…others like myself very much newbies….[I suggest you take the time and read his blog if you are interested in doing the market scene….] Last weekend I was at our local markets chatting with my good mate Ken… from Ken's Krafts Wedding Wishing Wells...

New Basement Workshop Pics #1: Floor cured & Ridgid R4511 unpacked

01-18-2011 05:11 AM by shimster | 6 comments »

This may not look like a woodworking post at first glance, but do read on…. I’m afraid to look back at the date of when I last posted to LJs regarding a suggestion on finish ceiling height in my basement dig out. Well, After 9 months of design/ planning/ construction, my basement is dug out & the slab is poured. A brief history of events: Our house was built in 1852 & had 5 foot ceilings & dirt floors when we bought it. It had an old boiler (70’s) that ven...

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 40 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

DragonFly Harp #6: 1/12/2011

01-12-2011 09:24 PM by Donna Menke | 10 comments »

Doesn’t seem like 6 days have passed, but the calendar does not lie. I have a lot to catch up with.First order of the day was to edge join the pieces I would need to have wider- like for parts of the stand legs and the base of the harp.These Bessey clamps are the best.Then I needed to cut the angled sides. This was the most dreaded job, and the first rip (with the grain) on the table saw (my second least-favorite power tool). Took most of a morning to assemble the tool and then to figur...

Pyramid illusion

01-11-2011 08:19 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

I have to reduce my time in dealing with geometrical design last holiday seasons due to some domestic appointments and household projects. However, my mind is pre-occupied on to continue different design concepts using a rhumboid. I think it is time to recover from the LONG GAPS and so here I am back again to what I started. This time, I do design and do it in flesh as soon as I have the chance. Pyramid came up when I accidentally cut a rhumboid the other way around. Instead of a 60 deg...

Platform Bed #3: Continuing in SketchUp

01-07-2011 08:19 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

Apparently I’ve got the itch to get this thing well and designed, so I’ve spent a good bit of time since yesterday in SketchUp working out some details – mainly with the drawers. Attached are some more images that show where I’m at. The materials shown were chosen really quickly just to give the model some more texture and I added in a figure to give a better idea of scale. I hope the exploded view gives a clearer idea of the my next challenge, which is to figure ou...

Platform Bed #2: Starting With SketchUp

01-06-2011 06:02 PM by R.A. Ray | 6 comments »

I may have been hasty when I said I would be starting my bed design “soon” in my last post, but design has finally begun. Due to some of the hardships I encountered when building my bookcase, I decided to get a bit more serious with my design tools and have taken on learning SketchUp to realize the design. What’s shown here is far from done and much will need to be learned before I can complete the design, but this gives a good idea of where I’m headed.

DragonFly Harp #4: 1/4/2011 Completed Model

01-04-2011 07:05 PM by Donna Menke | 14 comments »

Here is a good example of just how difficult joinery is with foam. Lots of slop and instant gratification- not at all like wood. Wonder if one can play a foam harp- nah.The foam model has been assembled for the first time- with toothpicks, tape, and chewing gum (just kidding about the gum). I tried to glue some parts with Titebond, but it never dried and didn’t stick well. I’ve decided to return to the original plan to end the bottom of the pillar outside of the sound box. Hope it...
