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...

DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...

Embracing woodworking

01-02-2011 10:30 PM by FreddyS | 9 comments »

I guess it all started back in the day when my now late father taught me, by letting me do things by myself at a young age, to always dig deep to find a solution for any task at hand no matter how hard it seemed, this got stuck really well on me I think, and sometimes to the point of obsession I’m afraid hehee. To be honest, it has been a source of some troubles, but mostly it is a source of great joy as it has lead me to a path for searching new things to learn and new things to cre...

Leonard Street Workshop #1: The very beginning

12-31-2010 02:39 AM by tyskkvinna | 19 comments »

Hey everybody. Did you miss me? I disappeared because my life got woefully busy and I had no way of doing any woodworking. As I mentioned earlier in the year, we decided to move our business from a relatively small city to a much bigger one (Grand Rapids, MI) and spent the summer and autumn looking for a new facility. It’s a difficult progress, because we have extremely unique needs. But, we found a new home. A former YMCA, our new building (currently called the “Leonard St...

You can see more of my projects and links to other woodworking and carving blogs on my web site: www.woodworks-by-donna.comI have some nice cherry wood on hand- so I’m going to make another harp similar to the last one, but with a few variations. Stocks above, and view of grain below.This is the harp I made from plans from MusicMakers back in 2007, out of walnut boards. http://harpmaking.blogspot.com/Here is the rough stoc...

The beginning

12-29-2010 04:26 PM by Gator | 2 comments »

I am going to attempt to build a box for my father in law to store coins in. The criteria is fairly simple. ( in theory ) The box must be small enough to fit inside a floor safe, yet big enough to be able to carry multiple coins to a show. Box size will be approx. 8.5” x 8.5” x 12” deep, with three flush mounted drawers in the front, with 3 storage compartments running the length of each drawer that will be used to store coin display cards that are 2” square. I ...
