Four-Poster Captain's Bed #1: Introduction to where I am & what I'm doing

09-15-2015 07:41 PM by RobII | 0 comments »

Just got engaged a few months ago and promised my bride-to-be a hand-made captain’s bed (you know, drawers underneath the mattress platform) with corner posts and a canopy with a mirror. Found out they don’t use glass, but it’s still reflective – so it’s OK. Thought I’d start with turned posts and mixed species to give the bed some “character” instead of the much more common square or built-up posts and all the same wood – bleah! Got ...

Setting Up Shop #2: The Plan

09-15-2015 07:30 PM by wmgworks | 0 comments »

Planning and brainstroming are some of my favorite parts of any project. And everything needs to start with some sort of plan. The more effort you take to write and skectch it up equals quicker completion and less redos when the time comes to complete your project. Here is my plan for a workshop so far. The Goals Modest Woodworking Shop – after a 20 year hiatus I am highly motivated to get back into woodworking. My Dad had a shop, so I used to piddle around with his gear. Never ha...

shop remodel #3: Clutter has to go!

09-13-2015 03:22 AM by Woodpecker23 | 2 comments »

I am in the middle of building a kitchen table (which if you would like to see the progress on that I do have a blog on that too). I am absolutely tired of the clutter and have to constantly pull out one saw from the clutter and put it back to use another tool… driving me NUTS! So here are a few examples of the craziness I’m talking about… As you can see it has gotten way out of hand with the stacks of scrap and just…. grrr I am getting irritated jus...

Beginners Start Here!!! #3: Cutting/Milling Tools For Beginners On A Low Budget Continued

09-11-2015 10:56 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

If you have started collecting your tools as the funds become available, you might find yourself looking like this more and more. At least I hope you will. It’s really a great experience. Credit to Nick Offerman Woodshop “The Dusty Proprietor” (Photo by Emily Shur) As for continuing down the road of cutting and milling.

Wooden Toy Train

09-05-2015 02:07 AM by MagicSawDust | 5 comments »

Inspired by a sketch of a ride on toy train which was a bit large for my liking, I liked the idea so much that I decided to make a smaller version, this one being only 40 inches long and about 4 inches high. Photo shows the start of making the boiler: strips cut at a 60 degree angle and glued together to make a hexagonal shape reminiscent of the way they used to make barrels in the olden days. Good idea to make two halves and the edges are much easier to true up. Used hot melt glue ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1609: Multi-Tasking

08-25-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I felt a lot more like myself. After a couple of weeks of feeling a bit 'lost' I was back in full swing again working on three different projects at various stages. There's nothing like some good, solid deadlines to kick start us back to productivity!I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I have many friends who design and create all kinds of crafts from woodworking to painting and just about everything in between. I have seen them struggle and I have seen them soar ...
