Maple Chess Board #1: Cherry joints

02-11-2011 01:43 AM by Brandon | 3 comments »

What has turned out to be a simple and relaxed day has been a long and tedious one. The chess board that I’m building has been what seems to be a chess game in its self. The 4”x16” strips have turned out good but seem to have a little cup to them after the glue up. I took the board and sanded what I could till it was level and smooth. Then the cherry side strips are not perfectly flush against the maple ends. I planed everything but the butt ends just don’t seat all th...

New Pallets for my Dry Sink Project

02-07-2011 06:45 AM by JerryBerry | 11 comments »

Well, went out and collected 7 pallets for my next project. As you all know, I like to re-purpose wood to do my projects. This one should be interesting as it’s a Dry Sink and will be done entirely with old wood pallets. I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with what I’m doing here. There are the links to the pics!

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #233: An Unexpected Adventure

01-22-2011 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Life is full of adventure. Sometimes adventure comes into our lives uninvited. Other times we set out to find it. And then there are the times when we stumble upon it unintentionally and it takes us by surprise. Yesterday was one of those times for me. The day began normal enough. I got up and did my mail and wrote my blog here and did all of my regular morning routine. I had planned on finishing the two new candle trays and photographing them and moving on with other projects. M...

DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

Kamagong (Ebony) jewelry box

01-18-2011 12:11 PM by Bill Davis | 11 comments »

Doing some resawing. The basic box. About a week ago my dentist, Bam, said he had a piece of old Kamagong for me. Well that made the pain in the dentist chair more tolerable (actually it was only a routine cleaning). It was a pretty scrungy looking board about 30” x 18” with nail holes (including a couple of nails) and a fair share of splits. I could see some nice grain buried in there though it would have to be brought out where it was more obvious. Also someone had ‘...

I was ready, fired up and motivated to get building my Adirondack chair, patterns set, lumber staring at me cup of coffee steaming away.
