My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1725: Creating Every Day

04-27-2016 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

OK.  It may appear that I have been 'slacking'. Between cutting mountains of ornaments, having a cold/flu for a couple of weeks, and having some family things to take care of, it may seem that I have somewhat fallen out of the habit of posting here each day.There may be some merit to that, as it is no secret that I haven't been here every day as I have for the last several years, but that doesn't really mean that I am not creating. I just try my best to keep my posts...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1724: Checking In

04-25-2016 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that lately I haven't been here very much (blogging, I mean.)  Even though I have felt that I am busier than ever, Between starting off the year with a tremendous amount of orders, getting sick for a couple of weeks and then 'catching up' with things, I have felt very much out of my regular routine. I don't know if that is a bad thing or a good thing, as I am still accomplishing a lot, but just not in the usual places. Add to that we are planning to move in ...

State Fair Series #2: From the Jaws of failure

04-24-2016 10:04 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I spent some time yesterday laminating 2 wood choices together. Today I set myself up for some precision cutting. I didn’t use Klaus’ sled. You see I experimented over and over again getting my depth just right. My index was exactly 7/8 of an inch. Heck, half my time was spent on the math. I’m pretty sure most of my issues today are because I didn’t build a 45 degree sled with an indexer. I know the worst problems I had were because I didn’t buil...

Slow Days at the Shop. #8: My Version of the Chisel Plane

04-24-2016 08:13 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

Admittedly, Tow Mater chairs and well executed portable work benches are both more interesting and practical than my fancy decoration but I am always happy when I build a tool that is received well by my woodworking peers. This chisel plane project is particularly special to me because where I have had several occasions to want one, I have never been willing to purchase one, nor had it occurred to make one until I saw that several other Lumberjocks have made their own and done a nice job o...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

Just a simple little box... #4: Getting close to a finish line, now

04-23-2016 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

But, had quite a bit of work to do first.. Lid came out of the clamps..voids on the ends filled. Gaps filled and sanded. Had one filler piece pop out, back into the clamps it went. Got set up for the bottom rebate, used a Wards 78 to mill it. Had to milled a few grooves to add the cutter storage dividers. Needed two narrow dados. Thought I’d try the 45 to cut them…. Couldn’t get the skates close enough. Could only get one of the spurs to move. Square and...

Pine bench #3: Building the legs

04-22-2016 01:54 PM by WillysGoodWood | 0 comments »

I’ve completed the legs of the bench and squared them up. I left extra material on the bottoms to level the bench once it’s complete. I plan to start on the frame of the bench next week and attempt to complete the bench early so I can work on other smaller projects.
