Simple Writing Desk #1: Working my way through

04-18-2012 10:04 PM by Rick | 1 comment »

I started out with a bunch of sycamore. It’s been sitting in my garage now for a year. I finally started to make use of it. A sample with one end shellac, one end Arm-R-Seal My wife is in need of a desk, but we wanted something simple. She said she didn’t even want a drawer. So we measured, and started on a couple boards. The boards had some twist. I spent a lot of time getting that out. I tried ripping one board on the bandsaw, then jointing one of the rips. I...

Well It’s done!http://www.flickr.com/photos/43319756@N05/5068492159/in/photostream/ At a total of $130.00 in materials I’ve finished the project I wanted when I first saw it the March 2010 issue of Wood Magazine.It’s also the first project I’ve done working with Cherry. I really enjoyed it even though I found Cherry to be a bit unforgiving.The grain pattern through out the piece is really eye catching: http://www.flickr.com/photos/43319756@N05/5069101620/in/photostream...

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

Lamp Mounting Plates Day 2: Progress

11-27-2012 12:37 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Got a hold of some free time today during naps and continued work on Jim’s aspen mounting plates for his new garage lights. I took the two blanks of wood that I had sketched the design on from last time—-here’s the picture from the last entry to refresh your memory (Thanksgiving and vacation right before that really but a damper on my shop time): As you can see I had cut the first plate with the coping saw (that took a while and wasn’t that easy to control, but I...

Key Holder: Closer

12-01-2009 08:21 AM by Seth | 7 comments »

After Thanksgivings #s two and three, after two days of painting our bedroom and cleaning up the mess that created, it was finally time to turn my attention to the keyholder. My dad was nice enough to give me his inherited router, which was the piece of equipment that lit a fire under my hobby-searching self. For some reason, the idea of rounding edges or being able to cut canals out of wood made the whole thing a lot more appealing. Here’s my makeshift workshop: That’...
