My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1740: A Little Break

06-06-2016 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In preparing to move in a few weeks, you can imagine that things are a bit different in my life these days. Even though the 'big day' is a couple of weeks away, my general routine is rather 'off' and my mind has been in many different directions. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am not producing designs like I should.This isn't a matter of "Designer's Block" or anything of that nature. I have more ideas than I have time to create. It is more like &...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #11: Finish off lower wall bench, and other things.

06-06-2016 07:19 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

Haven’t blogged in a while, mainly posting things in the SotS forum as i go. Figured i would move some of it in a blog. Since last entry in this blog and during my entrys for my dutch chest and handtool workbench i have been migrating between two buildings. Recent developments on the homefront, all my woodworking stuff has to be squeezed into one. So operation Squeezeitallintobackbuilding has been going on for the last week or so. Had some issues with my handtool workbench so i ha...

Compass Deck #3: Decking

06-05-2016 04:28 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

With all the joists leveled out it was time to start laying out the deck. I started with the points of the star. Here its all cut out but not screwed down. I used the Kreg Hidden Deck Fastener System. I really like the system! It is very well designed and thought through. You do have to be careful you do not over bore your pocket holes or over drive your screws. The composite decking can also shift so it is easy to run out of square and true, but that is not the systems faul...

Compass Deck #2: Compass Framework

06-04-2016 12:30 PM by Nate Meadows | 13 comments »

Once I got the joists in I started on the framework for the compass. I really wanted it to be located in a place in the deck where it would be visible, not necessarily in the center of the since that is where the table and chairs would end up. I can honestly say I didn’t do a bunch of number crunching, I just did what felt right. I also new that the points of the star where going to be a very busy place so I wanted to use wide blocks for adequate support and screwing surface....

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!

06-04-2016 06:08 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...

Stickley No. 622 Trestle Table #6: Locking Tenon & Lumber for the top

06-02-2016 08:04 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

So it’s been a while since I posted anything on my table, despite my continued work on it. Sometimes I find its really hard to carve out a portion of the day to do this, but I feel like its really cool to document all the work that goes into something like this. So the last entry I made showed both of the sides getting assembled, and now its time cut the long stretchers that go in between. This was a fairly physically demanding task, and the board really cantilevered over the edge of...

End Table #7: Top, chore

06-02-2016 02:37 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I made my top by glueing 3 pieces of oak together and sanding it. I did have some tribe making this because it would not fit in the planer so I had to use the handsander to sand it which took much longer. I also made my chore, and to do it, I used the dove cutter and glued the pieces together. I fitted the bottom in and put the false chore front on it and put the handle in. I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1739: 12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 Complete!

06-02-2016 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have been busier than usual the past couple of weeks, and I expect that this will continue for the near future as we prepare our move into our new house. There is so much to consider and so much organizing to to! We are both really excited about it, but it is also very time consuming to plan and think things through and also figure out and purchase what we will need to make the move as seamless as possible regarding our business. Since we no longer will be both working in one room, the...

More working with Pine #9: Glue ups, we have glue ups

06-02-2016 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Finally…..I think….Tale of the good, the bad, and the UGLY…Got all the mortises done, decided to start glueing things up…( that was the “Bad” part) tried to clamp up round posts with plain clamps… Clamps would hold, until you looked away, then they’d flop onto the floor. Somehow got side #1 and the back to stay together long enough to pin a few joints… Went ahead and used side #2 to clamp things up better…..That is where ...
