Solid Pine 2x12 Speaker Cabinet #1: The Plan

08-16-2010 01:47 AM by Michael J. Moore | 6 comments »

I plan on building a 2×12 speaker cabinet to mate with my most current tube amplifier build. My 4th son is due tomorrow so I will be on leave for the next few weeks and I’m hoping, on my free time, to get some pictures of my progress posted and walk through the process via these blogs. Next Post: The Design

Mounting Live Edge Turning

08-14-2010 07:39 PM by scrappy | 11 comments »

Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece. When starting your tun, you can use a turning plate or chuck to hold the bottom and turn the outside and inside. But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...

Project SC #5: The long and winding road

08-14-2010 07:05 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

Hello all. The first order of the day was to route the bottom pieces and the lipping slots in the inner sides OH! Problem. The lipping slots go right through the corner posts. I should have routed before I put these on. No matter there’s always the spare stock I always make. I cut the old posts off. Finish sanded and sealed the insides of all four sides and the top. As for the corner posts I made and glued new ones on. I made a bottom out of 3mm birch ply and glued ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #72: The Two Choices are 'Scratch' or 'Sleep'

08-14-2010 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, yesterday was pretty much a wash. I went to the pharmacy in the morning to get something to deal with the bites and the pharmacist said “Wow. Those look bad” (no kidding) He gave me some cortisone cream and told me that pretty much my only option was Benedryl. He said that it should clear them up in a few days. I told him that it really made me sleepy, but he said there was really nothing else that would help. So I came home and put the creme on right away and held o...

My comment total will be the #1 spot soon

08-13-2010 11:21 AM by Ken90712 | 28 comments »

So as I was looking over the Lumber Jocks List and noticed A1jim has over 36,000 comments, I just shook my head in amazement. I hit 1900 this week, so I figured out how long it would take for me to take over the #1 spot! Of course this is just an estimate, and without knowing how many Jim will post I will assume he will not post any more until I catch up for the sake of being polite! LOL SO I’m only 34,741 comments behind which = If I post 20 comments per day = 41,688 hrs = 1737 d...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #70: Thanks For The Great Responses Yesterday

08-12-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Well, after reading all the responses from yesterday’s post it really did bring home the fact that I do need to get moving more. When I used to live in the town of Digby, a little over a year ago, I did walk just about every day. Even if it was a short walk to the post office and back it got me out and stretched. I did take my walk here yesterday. The 2km loop around the river. It took well under an hour and I think it will be a nice start to doing something along that line every...

The Hutch #1: Making a hutch for the Kitchen...

08-12-2010 05:33 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

Wife and I make a design and I am tasked with making a hutch for the kitchen It will be in two parts (as the item it replaces is just a kinda sideboard with a few drawers and a lone shelf behind a door. This should be a huge improvement (casue she designed it and as long as I stick to the design I cannot go wrong!). The bottom half started with a lot of web surfing and finally an order from “OSBORN” woodworks they make a crap load of turned junk and other architectural ite...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #66: The Same Thing Can Be Very Different

08-08-2010 02:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It’s funny how you can take the same thing and make it look so completely different. I guess that I why I like painting so much. Even though I do appreciate the beauty of the natural colors of wood, there are times when it just isn’t possible or practical to use natural and exotic wood. My friend Cari and I used to have a lumber yard nearby when we lived in Oak Lawn, a suburb of Chicago. This was back when I had just started to scroll saw, as Cari and her father are the ones ...

Random shop notes #3: Now I know.

08-05-2010 02:36 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

That I can afford to get the electrical work I want done. Gonna run me about $350-400 bucks. And we set the date to move the table saw in – it’ll be arriving on Monday the 9th, and needs a whomp-load of work. It’s an old Delta/Rockwell 10” Homecraft, and is showing it’s age. I’ll have to wait until I get it in the shop to see how much re-furb it needs. I’ve just barely got room for this machine – it’s going to have to go on ca...
