My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #471: Seasons Change

09-24-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was the first day of fall for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. Those of you who read know that it is my favorite time of year. Living in the woods allows me to witness all the beautiful colors first hand right outside my window. There are many hardwood trees in my area, and at this time of year, they offer a variety of colors ranging from gold to orange to crimson. It is truly beautiful. I went into town yesterday to do some errands and I couldn’t believe ...

Workbench #3: Milling Mostly Done

09-24-2011 02:50 AM by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. This is another update on my bench build. I have had almost two months off working on it because my friend has been in my shop working on his bench. But just over a week ago we took his almost done bench to his house for him to do the final fitting of parts and such. After doing a little organizing and sharpening I got back to work on my bench. So right now I have the legs and parts for the top all milled to thickness and width. This is the slab for the roubo half of my bench. Its 2...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #470: Holy Distractions, Batman! (But oh, aren't they fun?) :)

09-23-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

You know that feeling you get when you see a project and you just HAVE to make it? Well, that happened to me the other day. On Tuesday I received my copy of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I saw the most darling little compound cut bats in it that were designed by my friend Diana Thompson. They were right there flying around on the cover: Well, Geeze Louise! WHY did she have to go and make something so darn cute?!? Doesn’t she know I have other things to do??? I...

Workbench #3: Leg assemblies

09-22-2011 06:36 PM by CrossGrain (Josh) | 6 comments »

Last time, I had finished assembly of the benchtop but had neglected to get any pictures of it right-side up. I moved it onto the bed in the spare bedroom near my work area to make room for sizing up the leg stock. I purchased poplar for the base of the bench since it is relatively inexpensive. I read something recently about poplar not being a good choice for a workbench base (not sure what the reasoning was), but I have already purchased it and done much of the sizing of parts from it. I...

BALL IN A BOX #2: The Plan

09-22-2011 04:48 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Normal to each project to have a plan, written or only in the mind, working ahead is knowing what is next. Things available: The resources that are available. The essentials are: RouterRouter Jig – I will use the straight guide, compass and roller attachments… I have to make the curving jig if the compass attachment will not suffice.Routerbits… Got 1/8” dia x 1/2” (1/4 drive) straight bit – could be used for cutting the curve.Reamer bit 1/2 drive ...

Starting My Business #5: The Sweet Smell of Sappy Cherry

09-21-2011 06:08 PM by ChrisCrafts | 2 comments »

Last weekend I picked up a good size Cherry tree for cheap. 2/3 of it is going to the lathe and the remaining 8 foot section is going to be slabbed up for tables & such. This gave me the opportunity to make my first bowl blanks. I have had about 2 cords in the back 40 (sq feet) for the past 6-9 months. I hadn’t cut any of it up yet, and it was started to wear thin on the wife’s patience. Now my whole shop reeks of Cheap Black Cherry Soda. The Cherry was cut down in early...
