From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #16: Not much happened lately..

221 days ago by Serradura | 5 comments »

Now I wish I could show you a bunch of new pictures of our workshop. Specially after the attention we got as workshop of the month. Now we do promise to keep you up to date on the work, but for now we have reached the end of our budget. So, it’s all about working hard, doing as much client projects as possible and trying to save as much as possible. There’s still a lot to be done! At last we did get the floor in as mentioned in our latest blog. And yes…. we did get a new ...

How did this obsession with wood come about?

226 days ago by WyOutLaw | 6 comments »

I guess it could all be blamed on a fat bearded guy, in a red suit. Back in December of 1973, a Handy Andy Tool Chest was left in the hands of an impressionable 5 year old in Vacaville, California … and a woodworker was born. Well, I think there was probably more interest in the cap gun six-shooters, football helmet, and Hot Wheels that morning, but that Christmas was my introduction to woodworking. As a young boy, I helped my father with various wood projects out in the garage (always w...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

229 days ago by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

241 days ago by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #14: Holy Cow, what fun!

271 days ago by Ethan Harris | 5 comments »

Hey everyone! It has been crazy! I’ve launched my own website, expanded products, paid my taxes and continue to make Spud Woodworks a real opportunity for myself and my family. I did hit a rut for awhile, it was difficult going day in and day out just sitting there making the same thing over again. But it dawned on me, I can always find opportunity to improve a product, grow its customer base, and make more varied styles and editions. Over all its been exciting. Really exciting! A...

THE BLANKET CHEST PERSUASION

280 days ago by TDog | 1 comment »

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #15: Finally a floor in the workshop and some more...

290 days ago by Serradura | 9 comments »

It’s all because of a lovely lady that the floor became a reality in our workshop. Yes, she raised me and gave me my motto in life.. “Doing things for free, doesn’t mean doing them for nothing. Appreciating all work that was done, she decided, while spending a 3 months holiday in Portugal, that she could only leave after being sure that her son would finally had a finished workshop in which he could work on a brighter future. We started with the concrete beam bene...

Workshop Projects #2: From a 200 year old ruin into a workshop - Part 2

298 days ago by Serradura | 2 comments »

Now, how strange it is to be all alone in your workshop, nobody around, just you, your tools and your video camera and still being nervous. Knowing that you are going to share that video with the world makes you feel watched and although you can do it over and over again until you got it right, still your feeling embarrassed while making mistakes. Maybe that insecurity will become less overtime…. I didn’t withhold me from making the second video on the 4 year long journey of re...
