I found this site while perusing a survival site. There is some good ancient information here. Enjoy! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/device/devices2.html
Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...
I recently found an old name stand (the one in the office where the name of the person and position is carved and put on his table for easy identification). A eucalyptus but very tight grain. What I like is the color. It is a pale yellow and will be a very nice contrast with red Narra. I was planning to use a pine tree specie for the white or yellow color but it is too soft and I don’t want to combine it with all those hardwood. I had already spent a long and tedious work on this an...
Sept 4 2010I have started a pair of night stands for our bedroom after they are done I will make the bed head board and a foot board with a TV lift inside so here is the start of the project I tend to get caught up in building and not take the time to document and take photos. I have a bit of free time on my hands because my wife is out of town for thee weeks on business. Let the project begin. As I’m sure you can see this is the stock I am using to get started. The other picture is te...
As we continue on in our build we get to where we need to build the boxes for our drawers. I run through it and explain about setting up for the drawer slides.
I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...
Ok, so I’ve changed the design of the drawers a bit on my bench cabinet. I decided that instead of sliding on wood rails – per the plan – that it would be much better to use side mount ball bearing sliders. The plan calls for 19-3/4” deep (carcass is 20” deep) but they don’t make 19” sliders. I got 18”s. The width of the drawer is 23” (I know, I’ve read that they shouldn’t be wider than the slider, oh well…) Depth o...
This video is last half of the plate,the finish.
After the end of the potato harvest,I finally got to work in my woodshop.The first turnning was this plate made as a gift.
I am looking forward in doing some mosaic of wood. I was amazed by the capability of sketchup in trying to design those combinations. I know I am motivated by those who created designs for boxes, lazy susan, table tops and many others… To mention some.. Larry (Degoose), Spalm, Martyn (Britboxmaker), Gary K., etc. I posted this series for those who are interested in constructing it. Just click the photo to make it full screen…
