My woodworking education #3: Trying to make a Good Decision...

03-26-2010 10:41 PM by azwoodman | 6 comments »

3/26/10 So I as you can read in my previous blog posts about my woodworking education, I have been seriously contemplating enrolling in a full time furniture craftsmanship program. I recently returned from a visit to Palomar Community College in San Marcos, Ca to meet with the Cabinet and Furniture technology program instructors and take a tour of their facility. I mentioned that I was about 90% sure that I would be going there this fall (August 2010). Well, I’m not at 90% any more… ...

My woodworking education #2: Review after visiting Palomar College

03-22-2010 08:39 AM by azwoodman | 0 comments »

Home sweet home! We got home last night after spending the rest of the weekend in San Diego. It was a pretty relaxing trip since we didn’t really have anything else planned beyond checking out the college and that was all done by Thursday evening. First off, thank you to all those who commented on my last entry! There were definitely some good points made. In this entry I will give you an overview of my experience and share some of my thoughts. I think writing it down will help ...

Ryan's Display Case #1: Introduction

03-19-2010 09:23 AM by Thomas Keefe | 2 comments »

My son (4 yrs. old) received a baseball bat and ball autographed by Randy Winn of the San Francisco Giants. (Go Giants!) This is the display case I built to show them off. And also to keep him from running around the house and smashing things with the bat. The case is made of cherry wood. The front door of the case has 1/4” safety glass. The frame is joined with mortise and tenons. The glass fits into a rabbet in the back and is held in place by 8 wooden brackets. The sides of the ca...

Chip carving patterns #9: Leaf 1

03-18-2010 04:23 AM by lovestoys | 5 comments »

Time to start with some curves – I’ve created a pattern that’s based on an article that Wayne Barton published about designing your own leaf patterns. I did a simple leaf, and just reflected it around the boundary. I put in a tulip pattern in the center, but feel free to fill the center with a design of your own.

Making Candy #3: Bent Inlays

03-17-2010 06:48 AM by Andy | 26 comments »

I couldnt find any info that explained how to make bent inlays without using a router and a template, which is time consuming and limiting. I thought about using the bandsaw to make S shaped cuts and inserting pliable strips, but thought that the rough cuts made by the course teeth would show up, but I was encouraged after reading Blogs by Patron and Degoose on making double curve lazy susans. The cuts were made on the bandsaw and the pieces mated up just fine. So, I made a test piece. I trie...

Making Candy #2: Bits and Pieces

03-16-2010 03:32 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

When I started out to make the candy, I thought I would just simply cut up my scraps and sand them smooth.This worked for some pieces, but I soon found that a more systematic approach was needed for consistancy.I wasted half a day making pretty pieces, shaped all willy nilly that were impossible to fit into the tray without leaving gaps everywhere. I did think about bedding the pieces in a liquid resin, but figured it would either set up before all the pieces were in, or flow over the rim whe...

I am starting a simple blog on how I made my candies for the box called “Eye Candy” This will work as a blanket answer to all the questions I have recieved on this. Its pretty obvious that they are no more than glued up woods of contrasting colors, but this will give insight on how I did it.I am working on pictures at this point and some will be posted in the next chapter, hopefully tonight. So follow along if you are interested.Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and ...
