If you knew Sushi.... #4: Two handles, two curves..

08-05-2011 11:34 PM by degoose | 4 comments »

You will have seen on the sushi boards, that I have cut two curves on the handles.. If I were just making one board, the cuts could be made freehand on the bandsaw…but… Since this is now part of the range… I need to be able to produce these cuts on a regular and repeatable basis… so once more a jig is needed.. To start, glue the mainboard to the handle/ends… this need not be a great bond… it is to temporarily hold the pieces together while they are cu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #422: Working

08-05-2011 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Sometimes when I am working the hardest, it seems that I have the least to write about. I spent the day yesterday pretty much chained to the computer drawing and that in itself doesn’t really make for an interesting blog. It was one of those days where I was able to stay truly focused (yes – even I have them sometimes) and besides taking a couple of breaks to respond to mail and such, I really did nothing but sat and drew all day. I did finish one entire pattern though, an...

General shop progress #2: The next goodies for the shop

08-05-2011 02:37 AM by dadefreese | 0 comments »

Recently, I broke down and bought the Bosch enclosed router table, the excellent Incra v120 miter gauge and the Incra Miter Express. In addition to improving my general accuracy on the router table and table saw, my goal will be to craft my own custom spaced and sized box joints and dovetail joints. So far, I can say that all three have done more than I had been able to do with my prior gear. Prior to the Bosch table, I built a small router table insert for my tablesaw (a Delta TS350) th...

Making a TV stand

08-05-2011 12:57 AM by Angela | 0 comments »

Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...

If you knew Sushi.... #3: Two in a set.

08-04-2011 11:24 PM by degoose | 6 comments »

I thought that a maching set of two sushi boards would be nice. After selecting a nice board of Queensland Maple… I cut 2 blanks…and then using the curve cutting jig on the bandsaw …. I cut an asymmetrical curve across each board. 2 stipes of Purple Heart and 1 stripe of Camphor Laurel were captured and glued between the two halves. A few hours in clamps. And then the whole lot were sanded and the ends cut.. More on how the ends were cut and how the handles we...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #421: The Power of Friendship

08-04-2011 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As usual, I woke up today to several emails. Like anyone who has a routine, going through them first thing in the morning is one of mine. I like to see what I may have missed during the night and see if there was any orders or things like that which need my immediate attention. I like Google Gmail because it allows you to categorize your mail and add color coded labels on emails from people or places where you receive frequent emails from. For instance, orders from my site are one color...

Tomorrow… a base and bearing… final sand and a few coats of poly.. Might use the Ear...

Apothecary Cabinet.. #5: Finally, the drawers are finished.

08-03-2011 10:51 PM by degoose | 20 comments »

I was galvanised to make the most of the day… hence the sanding of drawers… I did this in between glueing up blanks for the Sushi Board Series….entertaining visitors to the workshop….and enjoying some inspiration… after the job was done of course… So over a period of a few hours, I completed the sanding of the Drawers for the Apothecary Cabinet… which has been dragging its heels….now all I have make is the Carcass in which the drawers will...
