Ideas from my shop #3: Cherry End Tables: How To

05-15-2008 12:17 AM by David | 8 comments »

May 14, 2008 ~ Happy Birthday Samantha This is one of my favorite days of the year; the day my grandaughter Samantha was born. It seems like yesterday but it was really 10 years ago. Of course the other favorite day is Emily’s B-day and she is 3. So I digress but thought today would be a good time to finally put together this sequence on these Cherry End Tables. Our Daughter wanted me to make her two end tables out of Cherry and liked the design of two that I made from oak...

Dinosaurs & Dragons #1: Test runs

04-27-2008 08:06 AM by Alan | 5 comments »

So some friends are leaving town permanently for Vancouver and we are getting together this weekend with them and their two boys, one older and the other younger than The Dragon. I’ve had it in mind to make a Dino-Train set so I decided to make a couple of dinos for the boys as going away presents. Took about three hours to make the two and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out as tests. I’ll do them again and I think they will be better from what I learned ...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

04-21-2008 11:00 PM by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...

2008 Fiesta Arts Fair

04-19-2008 11:30 PM by will2480 | 1 comment »

Today my wife, daughter and I attended the 2008 Fiesta Arts Fair which was hosted by the Southwest School of Art & Craft in San Antonio, TX. If you are familiar with San Antonio, TX you might be aware of the annual Fiesta events that take place in San Antonio all across the city. My family decided to attend the art fair this afternoon. While we were there two different artisans caught my eye and prompted me to pick up their cards so I could review their websites. The first artisan t...

My first REAL cabinetmaking project. #1: The Question, The Plan, and The First Problem.

04-17-2008 10:52 PM by TroutGuy | 7 comments »

My first real cabinetmaking project started as a simple “Can you make a new frame for the medicine cabinet mirror, dear?”, from my wife. “No problem!”, I replied. The time I have spent here at LJ has convinced me that I not only CAN do it, but that I SHOULD do it! In fact, I SHOULD make a whole new medicine cabinet – a bigger, better medicine cabinet! [Insert Tim Taylor ‘grunt’ here.] I took some measurements, did a little cypherin’, spent a few hours in TurboCAD and voila, I had ‘The P...

'The Behemoth' Multi-function Workbench #1: Researching, designing and first round of glue-ups

04-14-2008 03:06 AM by sandflea | 2 comments »

Over the past several weeks I’ve been looking for ways to maximize the space in my small shop and get more utility out of the items that dwell there. For the last few years my workbench has been a crude, stationary one that is built into the wall. One of the first things I built, it’s too tall, too narrow and only three sides can be used. I decided to tear out this bench and build a replacement. So the first phase was trying to make a list of all the things I needed this ben...

Juniper Table Lamp w/ "double base" #4: Sanding is complete. Ready to run cord and patch holes

04-10-2008 05:08 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

Well this lamp is almost done. Tomorrow we will mount the lamps to the bases, run the cords and Tim will patch the lamps. I have not yet got my learning on how to do this. I have the basics down but havent tried it. He has pretty much mastered it so I will let him keep on with this task. We will have 10 lamps finished this weekend and next week we will start on a floor lamp and end table. These are custom orders that need to go out. I think I will blog about them as well. Anyway here is th...

Juniper Table Lamp w/ "double base" #2: Sandblasting and sanding the Juniper Lamp

04-09-2008 01:15 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 7 comments »

Tim, my husband worked on the base, it took 2 hours to get it leveled, shaped and sanded. The first two pictures are of the base after it has been run through the planer. This base is made out of burled cottonwood. Corners have been rounded and everything shaped before sanding. After two hours this base is done and looks great, the colors are really going to come out when we spray the finish on it. This is where I started sandblasting, the red dark wood has started to turn gray ...

We usually take the winter off of working in the shop, we spend the winter months trapping bobcats. Most of the time I am home with the kids and cathing up on much needed office work.

My new project for the next few days is this soon to be table lamp. Can you see the beauty? I have taken pictures ...
