Just started making 30 cutting boards from some Camphor laurel.I have dressed the timber, cut the curves on each end, drilled a hole in one corner on all of them ….and have routed a chamfer on the edges and sanded several… will finish them tomorrow and have them ready for the Brisbane show..NO pics yet… will save that for the full post…
OK, so the original plan has hit some bumps and our DR has moved our due date up to this Sunday so we need a changing table and we need one yesterday. I was at HD this morning picking up a small piece of plywood to fix a glider footstool with and I saw in their bargain bin some “Espresso” particle board shelves which are the same color as our crib and this gave me some ideas. I grabbed 5 of those and some culled lumber and today it will somehow become a changing table that wil...
So I’m building Norms Router Station… Almost don’t just need to complete the top and the dust collection on the back side.
It is interesting, to me, that once I have started this process now everything includes some element of the scrollsaw. My sister-in-law needed a new 4” x 4” mail box post. You know, simple get some 4×4’s and half-lap them together or purchase one of the ready made kits. NOPE! Not this time and not me, now. Yes I purchased the 4×4’s (recycled wood) and I half-lapped (yes, I got that joint TOOO tiight) them together. Now comes the fun part. I included victor...
Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...
“If it were easy, everyone would be doing it!” -Something I heard nearly every day when I was building log homes. It really applies to just about anything we set out to achieve. There are so many people dreaming of being fulltime woodworkers, but few are successfully making a good living at it. Why is that? Why is there so many failing or not even trying? Does it have to do with a lack of knowledge, talent, determination, or maybe its fear? There is so much information out there at our finger...
This is a video I made a wile back but I thought I would repost it due to it being safety week. check out www.hisingwooddesign.com for more info.
So after my HUGE error with the leg vise (it blocked the top drawer)I moved it over and mounted it on the outside of the leg. I’m not 100% satisfied with it, so there will probably be some changes. I did my best to cover up the holes that formerly housed the leg vise’s bottom and screw.Also I put the drawer fronts on the drawers. Here is the new mounting of the leg vise on the outside of the leg. once again, i dont love it, but it will work for now.More later...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182951744/to-the-root-of-things-glowing-pine-root-sculpture I’m hoping to turn these huge hulking remains of trees into some awesome stuff. I will try to keep this blog updated, especially if I get funded and get to launch my project. I really love working with non-traditional materials.
