Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it.

Shaping wood #1: Shaping an asymmetrical "propeller" drawer front

12-18-2011 10:53 PM by Antti | 2 comments »

I’m making a credenza based on a design (“Reflect storage”) by Soren Rose Studio I saw on a website (http://www.finnishdesignshop.fi/huonekalut-kirjahyllyt-reflect-lipasto-p-5098.html). The drawer fronts are like propellers. I have never done anything similar, and lacking any instructions I decided to make them like this. I considered routing instead of table sawing the rough shape, but for some reason felt more comfortable with the saw. Please comment on possible easier ...

Artemesia - Worlds Largest Craftsman Home

09-28-2014 08:04 PM by Jerry | 13 comments »

You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...

The Maloof Library Series #10: Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table project - Pixar meets woodworking

12-19-2011 03:00 AM by ScottMorrison | 10 comments »

This is a small sample of my new woodworking project video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table.” Templates and video available for pre-order at finewoodworker.com. It is a totally new, and never before seen, type of video project (and pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself). Think Pixar meets woodworking. Completely 3D and presented with amazing details and animation that leave no room for error in your project. Everyone who has built one of my chairs (or any cha...

The old time woodshop journals #25: Practices in Spoonology: Part two

09-03-2012 10:26 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

I have entered an important stage creating these smaller more swedish styled spoons. That stage is simply practice and seeing if I can produce a sufficient rhythmic pattern by exercising more than one roughed result. It’s best to let a green wood piece dry for anywhere up to a few days to 2 weeks before doing any serious finishing work so I thought this to be a good time to keep the ideas flowing and hone on beginners skills. It’s surely an exercise of challenge and chance when axing down ...
