Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

sawdust chronicles challenge #6: update

10-09-2010 09:39 AM by BigTiny | 3 comments »

Greetings all. Well, I haven’t gotten much of anything done this week as my health has taken a rather nasty turn. My back is so sore that I have trouble with the daily grind, let alone working in the shop. I’ve been experimenting with veneering, but that’s about it. Keep your fingers crossed for me, okay?

Loft Bed #1: Initial design requirement and a joinery concept

09-22-2008 09:01 AM by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

My kids are getting bigger and they need more floor space in their rooms. We’ve decided loft beds might be the way to go. Get the beds up in the air, create some desk space under the bed, and free up some of the rest of the floor space. I’m in the early design / concept phase right now. Some of my criteria include: - fits a standard single bed mattress- strong enough to hold a full size man, say 200+ lbs- robust joinery, kids / teenagers can be tough on furniture- knock d...

Making the garage a shop #7: Weather is nice, I'm slowing down.

03-21-2011 03:52 AM by Shawn K. | 3 comments »

The weather has been nice lately. Nice enough to work in the garage without a jacket. You’d think I’d be stepping up the conversion of my garage, but instead I’ve been letting myself get distracted, wanting to actually build things. So last weekend I made a crosscut sled, and tried my hand at a box joint jig. The crosscut sled was a success, the shop made runners seem to be working, and the accuracy is impressive, with less than half a millimeter off square over 36R...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #721: New Printers

06-03-2012 11:08 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

All was quiet yesterday and all went well. I spent the majority of the day working on cleaning up the files on my computer as well as backing things up. It was the grand finale of my organization stage of the game and I feel pretty good that not only is everything in order, but duplicated on an external drive. It has been a while since I have done that and while I back up the main PDF pattern files much more frequently, I don’t do the entire system very often. One thing of note tha...

Shaker Sofa Table #1: Project Planning and Getting Lumber

01-26-2013 12:53 AM by Douglas | 3 comments »

My sister just moved into a new house, and as a gift, I wanted to make her something. She needed a sofa table, as her sofa backs into her living room. Over the holidays, I took my measurements, floated a few designs her way, and we settled on a two drawer Shaker style hall table, made a bit thinner, to be a sofa table. This will be my first project for someone other than myself & my wife. It will also be the first project with my new bench, so I’m very excited to get use that. He...

Kitchen cabinetry #6: Making doors

11-10-2014 09:20 AM by Jake | 3 comments »

First off, lets start my establishing that i have the best, most understanding wife ever. I installed the cabinetry and had the plumber install my sink on the 20th of February this year, after which I was to make the doors and shelves in short order…. well…. with the 2” slab of hardwood counter top, pine or fir wouldn’t cut it for the doors, and oak was expensive, in addition i had to finish up my thesis for my university and had other projects, so I knew it was going ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1699: New Things!

02-19-2016 02:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today is going to be one of those posts where everything comes together at once. I guess that is typical when I do projects such as what I just completed. It seemed like I was here, there and everywhere and then suddenly – "BAM" (that's for you, Mary! ;) )  everything falls together nicely! Well- sort of, anyway! (If it were only that easy!) We managed to get everything completed and up on the site yesterday. I was proud because I even had my pattern packet ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1700: Along Came a (Little, Fat) Spider!

02-22-2016 02:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As usual, the weekend went by much too quickly. We had a 'visiting day' on Friday, and I had earmarked Saturday for cutting orders. Sunday was to be my day to 'relax', but that didn't really happen. (It never really does!)  I am not complaining though, as I did accomplish a lot and I was able to spend the latter part of the evening finishing up my Panel 1 on my latest embroidery project. So much is going on lately in my life it seems. The growth of our business i...
