Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Attempting the.. well.. improbable

08-19-2011 06:06 AM by Ryan | 4 comments »

So, the woodworking fever has struck me. Unfortunately, it has struck me to make cases for EVERYTHING. Cigarettes, Zippos, Business cards, puzzle boxes, etc… This is my next project, once I have a bit of time. I recently destroyed (Pictures to follow) my iPod 4, 32g. I mean it bent in half. How it is still “working” is a mystery to me, but I can still access everything (as long as I remember the finger movements to find it, considering the screen is in a million piec...

Making a Wooden Pendant #1: My wood pendant process

08-15-2011 09:30 PM by S2artDesigns | 4 comments »

I figured I would put this out there in case anyone was interested to know what I do to make these wooden pendants. Its not complicated. Anyone can do it with their scraps. I personally like to use burl wood but if you have less figured wood you can pair it up with contrasting colors and shapes for a nice effect. ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...

The Rocking Alligator #3: Construction Notes

08-01-2011 04:38 AM by BentheViking | 0 comments »

The main body of the alligator is a box. My problem has been that I don’t have a planer or joiner so making a box with tight joints is rather difficult. I sanded them out a little bit, but ended up having to make the joints a bit rough and then puttying them. Puttying has become a big theme on this project. I had originally wanted to make this project super perfect with tight joints and whatnot. My problem is that with my impending move, I am having to rush through things. It kind of...
