Just Don't Break Later, PLEASE!! #2: Almost done...and now the revisions begin!

04-26-2012 03:01 PM by WoodenGoliath | 1 comment »

This is what the drafting table idea eventually came to be. And it all started from this: While I loved the finish on this original desk, it just wasn’t quite big enough on top and certainly didn’t include the flip up for drafting/painting. So the revisions begin and bring us to that first picture. Now the issues are this: I don’t think the legs are appropriate for the design style here.I am getting away from this “L” shaped desk thing. So here a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #683: Monitor Project Complete - All Systems Go!

04-26-2012 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, as the title states, the monitor stand project is just about complete. We are both very happy with the results and feel like we made a great investment in purchasing these stands. We went from this: To this: The entire transformation was under a week, which included the delivery time for the monitor stands. We ordered them last Thursday and they were here by Monday and we were ready to start building then. My old stand was completely eliminated, freeing up valuable f...

Woodworking projects under way. #26: Got the shop clean enough. Time to start on the wedding gift, and I have a week to go!

04-25-2012 09:17 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

This is dreadful. I have a TON of work to do to get this done. Walnut coaster set it is. I have the lumber selected, and edge jointed. No I did not face joint it first. I wanted a straight enough edge that I could run along my TS rip fence, and THEN face joint it… I need to head to the craft store as well. I need to grab a compass of sorts that I can lock an Xacto knife into so that I can cut 2-3/8” cork disks with it. I figure at this size it should handle soda cans, beer cans...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #6: Tedious Tape-up... and jigs? Bed/Fence protection??

04-25-2012 08:05 PM by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Hello again, I’ve got quite a bit accomplished since my last post, but it took much longer than anticipated. I had to finish cleaning a few little pieces here and there and wipe off the never ending paint dust with mineral spirits. Once I’d clean a piece I’d tape it off, lots of masking tape and razor blades. The only pieces I have left are the pieces of the head. I have to clean up the head yet and probably replace the bearings, they felt good and sounded good but they prob...

Rushing through the home repairs. #8: Working outside while it is cool enough...

04-25-2012 02:19 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

I have a couple of trees that after drought stress, I had die on me, only to find wood boring beetles living in them. (Now I get to check my home structure to make sure they aren’t there!). So I got to spend some serious quality time with my ladder, a rope, a chainsaw, and a friend. The rope and the friend were to pull the cutoffs toward the middle of the lawn to avoid smashing the house, the fence, or me in the process of felling these trees. I am about 75% done, and I guarantee the tr...

Shop #2: Shop Progress #2

Hey guys, thanks for all of your comments! They are truly inspiring and kind. This entire project is taking much longer than anticipated. But what the heck, I’m only one man afterall. If you could, please take a look at my progress pictures posted below and feel free to offer any suggestions / criticisms that come to mind. This is one way that I (we all) improve. Your Input is Valuable to Me. I want this workshop to be as close to the “ultimate setup” as it can get. But finally, keep in mi...

Half scale Bombe Jewelry Box #5: Final Post

04-24-2012 09:43 PM by KPW | 7 comments »

It’s finished!!! and she loves it. This was a great and fun project. The learning curve was terrific. I’d like to thank all who followed along and encouraged. I hope you all enjoyed it too. God I love this site! I’m moving to Florida on June 15th so until I get my shop set up again, I’ll be sort of quiet. Thanks again to all. Next time it’s full size in mahogany and maple. Or perhaps that black walnut I’ve been milling.

04-23-2012 10:14 PM by KPW | 8 comments »

Finally some color. I went with a custom mix of minwax english chestnut,red chestnut, and a little varathane cabernet on the carcass. The draws are transtint honey maple. I’ll finish it up with multiple coats of minwax antique oil finish. I guess for the first experience the feet aren’t that bad.

dust stuff #8: check this one out

04-23-2012 07:33 PM by JoeyG | 17 comments »

As I sit here and wait for my walnut burl to arrive from UPS. ( My first internet order of lumber, I am a bit nervous.) I thought I would share a quick picture of my new box. I normally don’t share my projects when they are incomplete unless I am doing a blog or need a little advice on how to finish up a design. This time it is simply because I am so excited about it. This is my largest box to date. There is ruler in the picture to show scale. It is sized using the golden rectan...

Roger Stegal Carving seminar

04-23-2012 02:17 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I’ve been replacing the roof on a shed and doing other carpentry work, so I haven’t carved much in a few weeks. But I spent the weekend attending a two day seminar by Roger Stegal, a member of the Central Arkansas carving club, who has won several awards in different Caricature Carvers of America competitions. I had a lot of fun, picked up s few tips, sharpened some tools for other members, and got to visit a bit. I liked a couple of his smaller carvings, a Santa and a mounta...
