Hi,I was recently asked if I could make something to be auctioned at a fundraiser night at the Salvation Army. The funds from the night are to send Daniel and Shella Smith to The Salvation Army Training collage to become officers (pasters).I knew immediately what I was going to make.William Booth was the founder of the Salvation Army and he has this amazing speech that sums up the hart and passion of the Salvation Army. My thoughts were to design and scroll saw a portrait of William Booth, an...

Hickory Chest Build #1: Hickory Chest Build

10-26-2011 09:11 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...

A Peruvian Walnut Cradle #3: We have the pieces, let's put it all together!

10-26-2011 07:37 PM by jusfine | 3 comments »

Finally I can begin to assemble the pieces and get this project finished before she grows up and leaves home… In order to clamp the cradle sides and ends, I had to fashion some “brackets” or cauls to support my clamps which would keep the same angle and stay off of the dovetails while I glued it together. Since there was at least a week between cutting the pieces and assembly (I had burned my left hand in a yard fire and that kept me out of the shop for almost 4 d...

Veneered Sofa Table #2: Pressing the Veneered Panels

10-26-2011 05:15 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

Next step is to create two veneered panels for the top. I believe that a single large, unbroken top would look a little better but I really like the material that I have on hand and I don’t trust my ability to get an invisible seam at the center. So I will feature a break rather than make a poor job of hiding it. I do not have a large vacuum press system, so I will use cauls and clamps instead. I will use two 2’x4’ MDF sections to make a veneer sandwich. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #503: New Ornaments!

10-26-2011 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was an extremely productive day and I finished both my order for the large snowflake and also my new ornaments. It felt good to get so much accomplished. I don’t think I worked harder than I do on most days, but I actually reached the finish line on two things at almost the same time so there is a great feeling of accomplishment. Finishing up the snowflake puzzle wasn’t bad at all. I actually made two of them so one is sitting here on the shelf if anyone else decid...

Mystery commission. #3: Nearly done

10-26-2011 10:29 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

I used a spline cutting jig on the TS to cut kerfs in the mitres…. Used cedar for the splines…I know I was lackadaisical in not cutting the splines… just broke off pieces, This is what it looks like before I inlaid dots at the junctions of all the sets of nine…that is … the corners of the inner 9 spaces I have inlaid the dots and rounded the corners…Just have to apply a few coats of an oil finish…And to put anyone who does not know what it is...

Rocking Chair Build #6: Update on Arm Shaping

10-26-2011 07:12 AM by Topapilot | 1 comment »

I just sent an email off to Hal asking questions on some of my progress, and I realized I had taken some pics that I had not posted. I built a jig to cove the arms; it is designed to hold the arm billets in place with three threaded rods, and to hold the jig at an angle to the saw blade. Here are pics: This shows the jig in action on the table saw. The square frame holds the billet in place with three rods. the rods are epoxyed into wood handles and run through threaded inserts screwed...

A Peruvian Walnut Cradle #1: And in the beginning...

10-26-2011 04:11 AM by jusfine | 8 comments »

September 16, 2011 Our first granddaughter was born today, and although I had thought about it for some time leading up to her birth, other “more important things” just kept coming up, but now that she is here, I am seriously starting to build this cradle and don’t really think it will take more than a couple weekends of hard work. I think she is smiling as she knows that is not going to happen… Problem number 1 arrived unexpectedly as the Peruvian Walnut ...
