Reception desk #1: Project completed in 2 days! I Needed 4 days of rest after...

04-11-2012 06:09 PM by Dewshan | 2 comments »

I am working on a reception desk for a local business. Using birch plywood with birch trim. Had everything done over one weekend except for the finish. I like to cut dados first with the router on a festool track and then cut into separate pieces the design features a built in monitor in the top. the easiest way I found to do that was to build around the monitor. 2 small dowels hold the monitor at the right angle. I had to assemble this outside because it is a li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #668: Progress Report

04-11-2012 10:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I really want to thank everyone for the nice thoughts yesterday. I felt kind of silly putting up here that I wasn’t feeling the best, but I didn’t want you all to think that there was something wrong or that I was really being lazy or something like that. :) I spent the morning yesterday doing stuff like mail and running some errands. I had a couple of orders to go out and Canada Post was not open over the weekend or Monday so I had to get them out the door. I also had to go...

Split Roubo Workbench #4: Milling, gluing and clamping - The Slabs

04-11-2012 03:54 AM by lysdexic | 32 comments »

I took my lumber for the top to Rick’s at The Woodworking Source to mill it up. What is taking my better part of 2 days we knocked out in about an hour and a half. These are some pics of Rick’s place. Its interesting that Rick does not do woodworking outside of work. He golfs because it is what he does to forget about what he does when he needs to forget about what he does. He is a professional and a great asset. ———————...

French screen doors #2: Making the grills

04-10-2012 08:20 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

In the last video, I began making screen doors for a set of exterior french doors. Today I started to make the grils. The owner wanted vertical slats that rose at least 24” as he has a medium sized dog that wil punch the sceen out without them. I’ve decided that a dog needs to go in and out so I’ll put the grills on both sides of the doors.Cutting the slats, About a dozen per grill was a long tedious task with sanding and all. Below is a short slideshow video with narrated e...

Multi-Knife Display #2: Progress / Question for the Audience

04-10-2012 04:10 AM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve updated on this project, but its time to wrap it up so that I can move on to other things.. I’m at a bit of a cross roads, though, and need some input. Should keep the angle that the center of the display sits the same as the rest of the display, or should I make it a lower angle? See the pics below for what I mean: Same angle Same angle with the walnut inserts Lower angle Lower angle with the walnut inserts Let me know what you think!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #666: Back to Work

04-09-2012 10:05 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After a fun (and lazy) weekend, it is time for me to get back to work. We had a wonderful visit and dinner again yesterday but it is time to get back to things and get productive again. It snowed most of the day yesterday, and in Digby, there was even need for some shoveling as we saw. For the most part the roads weren’t too bad though and even though it was wet, it didn’t seem that icy. It is definitely one of the snowiest Easters that I can remember. But looking out this mor...

Catch up photos

04-08-2012 12:06 AM by T. D. Reid | 5 comments »

I promised you photographs to catch you up on my current build. First one is my 8 year old son on his first camping trip with dad. We had a break in the rain so he and I wanted to get the kayak and canoe in the water and figured that we would spend the night. We froze when the tempature dipped to below 32 degrees last night and we were trying out a new two man tent. It was fun and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Top rail that sits on top of the head and foot boards.4/4 Quart...
