Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #15: 2013 a Trail blazing year, 2014 already breaking records.

02-17-2014 07:34 PM by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers, It certainly has been awhile since I have last shared about my small woodworking business (Spud Woodworks). I have been very blessed over the past year and I wanted to share some of those things with you all. 2013 2013 was my banner year. I started Spud Woodworks as a all around online retail store on Esty, expanded to selling on my own website and made a few sales to local stores. My first 12 month year started slow, and grew to a 5 digit revenue company in my fir...

Having a Senior Moment....Help?

01-31-2009 07:17 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I need help finding an article/plan to make a US flag that holds the 50 state quarters. I saw the article/plan somewhere recently (in the last couple months) don’t remember what magazine or web site I saw it in/on. I’ve looked thru probably 100 magazine back issues, searched in LJ’s, and Googled it, no luck. I do remember one thing about it for sure, it said to buy the wooden stars at a craft store. The flag it’s self was waved like it would be blowing in the wind ...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat...

03-26-2013 02:46 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers! There is a glimmer of light in the progress department of my small business. The brightest spot being that orders keep coming in at a steady pace. The Ugly has reared its head however in the form of doing the same process, over, and over, and over again only to repeat it again and again… I find myself trying to stay ahead of the orders, trying to not think about the fact that in the course of three weeks I have made over a 1000 square 1.5×1.5×1.5 inch blocks&...

Anyone up for a Lumberjock Gettogether in Mid-Michigan

10-06-2010 11:10 PM by jockmike2 | 23 comments »

I talked to Billy J. the other day, David Craig and Rustic Rick, they all liked the idea but Rick didn’t want to have anything to do with the planning, and I don’t blame him. He’s had a hand, along with me in two of the last 3 get togethers we had. He said something about a gettogether at a woodworking show, but I’m talking about a meal together with friends, maybe sharing some wood with each other or something. The last one was great, but it was too long ago. I would ...

Scrolling with Asthma #3: Vacuum Cart

02-13-2015 07:47 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...

Morris style glider #2: The cut list

09-17-2014 09:08 PM by Orange008 | 4 comments »

I am getting anxious to start on this project. I have the cut list (below) all ready. Unfortunately the lumber yard I am purchasing the material from is only open on the weekdays during my work hours. I finally have a Thursday/Friday off next week, so off to the lumber supplier! I would love to do this in walnut, but cost drives me to white or red oak. I may decide that this is a once in a lifetime piece and end up with walnut.
