06-09-2016 02:24 PM by MarkStewart | 7 comments »

Disassembly of the plane was surprisingly straightforward; everything came apart readily with a single flat bit screwdriver. Here are the photos of it all in pieces: I noticed a few things as I opened it up. lever cap – chip out of left corner, nickel coating flaking frog – chip out of left corner Iron and chip breaker – mild to moderate surface rust with some minor pitting depth adjustment knob – slight nick in the knurled surface ...

Stickley No. 622 Trestle Table #7: Wrestling with the table top

06-08-2016 02:13 AM by Tooch | 2 comments »

So the last picture in my previous post showed the wood I bought for the top. After looking at the post again, I didn’t feel the picture did the wood justice. So here’s a couple closer shots to see how impressively thick it is. I was too excited to get started planing and I forgot to take pictures of the four large beams. The boards were originally 12 long, these are the 4’ cutoffs from them, which I plan to use for the chairs/bench. So after a considerable am...

More working with Pine #10: Getting close to the finish line....

06-07-2016 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, got the armrests done.. The square part didn’t ake all that long to chop out. The round hole? Forstner bit. So, when the armrest settles down over the tenon on the top of the front post, the post will get “housed” in the round hole….more places to add glue. I also chopped a mortise in each of the rear posts. Armrest would then slip into that mortise, and onto the tenon. I drilled a through hole through that rear post, in the center of the mor...

Carving a Life Size Statue #2: Detailing the Clay

06-06-2016 07:57 PM by Dennis Zongker | 19 comments »

After a month of working with clay I have finally got the customers approval of Jesus on the cross. So far it’s been a great experience learning human anatomy and learning so much about our Lord Jesus Christ, the little details and meaning behind each scar and location of the nails, ect. The clay model is at 1/2 scale 36” tall and the wooden Crucifix will be full scale at 6 feet tall. I am really looking forward to gluing and carving. I miss working with wood since I am a wood ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1740: A Little Break

06-06-2016 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In preparing to move in a few weeks, you can imagine that things are a bit different in my life these days. Even though the 'big day' is a couple of weeks away, my general routine is rather 'off' and my mind has been in many different directions. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am not producing designs like I should.This isn't a matter of "Designer's Block" or anything of that nature. I have more ideas than I have time to create. It is more like &...

Had some issues with my handtool workbench so i ha...

Compass Deck #3: Decking

06-05-2016 04:28 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

With all the joists leveled out it was time to start laying out the deck. I started with the points of the star. Here its all cut out but not screwed down. I used the Kreg Hidden Deck Fastener System. I really like the system! It is very well designed and thought through. You do have to be careful you do not over bore your pocket holes or over drive your screws. The composite decking can also shift so it is easy to run out of square and true, but that is not the systems faul...

Compass Deck #2: Compass Framework

06-04-2016 12:30 PM by Nate Meadows | 13 comments »

Once I got the joists in I started on the framework for the compass. I really wanted it to be located in a place in the deck where it would be visible, not necessarily in the center of the since that is where the table and chairs would end up. I can honestly say I didn’t do a bunch of number crunching, I just did what felt right. I also new that the points of the star where going to be a very busy place so I wanted to use wide blocks for adequate support and screwing surface....

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!

06-04-2016 06:08 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...
