Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #15: Inside of the box "Frisage" (parquetry)

12-11-2014 10:18 PM by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

After almost a month away in Europe, London and France, I am back and working on the boxes again. It was really nice to go back home as I haven’t been able to do so for 4 years. It was also nice to be back, through away the jacket and sweater, an put on the flip flops. Well, regarding the boxes. When I came back I put the already cut bone leaves in green dye and while waiting to feel up the holes in the marquetry, I started working on the inside of the boxes....

And now for something different

12-09-2014 12:16 PM by OldWrangler | 3 comments »

Are you tired of making Band Saw boxes and Cutting Boards? Want a wood project a little more challenging? Why not build a 1939 Lagonda Rapide Tulipwood Tourer? Actually 9 were built in a British factory taking over 2000 man hours each. It had a V-12 engine of 255 hp and reached a top speed of 80 mph. In 2007 one of these came up for auction and sold for $450,000. Posted just because I find it fascinating but then my Entertainment Threshold is very low.

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

The Rules of Work

11-23-2014 03:30 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

This is just a list of rules that I have either come across or thought of for myself that I need to keep in mind at all times when (trying to) do fine woodworking. This list is mostly for my own reference, and in no way to be considered exhaustive, but rather to be added to and updated as I continue to learn. If you fine folks reading it have suggestions to add, or strongly disagree with something I have on here, feel free to leave a comment! I’m here to learn. 1. Keep grain orie...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!
