My 21st Century Workbench

06-28-2010 05:47 PM by fineamerican | 15 comments »

18 days, and more research Ive finally arrived at the time when its time to put blade to wood. In part 1 I uploaded my sketch up version I fashioned, only to change. Im sure this will change some more. Never followed instructions in school, so why should I follow my own here?Included in this marathon of woodworking, will be a saw bench. I downloaded some plans for one from Christopher Swartz blog, Lost Art Press. I’ve selected a bunch of Cherry that was given to me, yes sometimes even ...

The basic three solutions include a blind corner, an open corner and a 45 degree corner. Each of these have an impact on how functional a kitchen will be. They also each have impacts on budget, or time spent on the shop. Since there are alot of different a...

Improving Dark Photos for Posting in LumberJocks

06-27-2010 06:40 PM by SawTooth1953 | 7 comments »

There are a lot of photos posted in LumberJocks that are barely passable for letting everyone see what you want everyone to see. I use Irfanview as my default photo editor. It is not Photoshop by any stretch, but with Irfanview (a free program) I can improve a dark picture in 10 seconds or less. I tested this last week by improving a project photo where I couldn’t see much detail and I emailed it to the LumberJock member that posted it. He agreed it was an improvement and replaced ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #23: "And Now For Something Completely Different . . . ."

06-26-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I love the days where you can’t wait to get up in the morning to get going. I am usually a morning person anyway, but even more so when I have some fun projects in the works. Lately I have been in a ‘why do I have to sleep at all?’ phase and I can’t say that is a bad thing either. Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I finished off printing the material for and packing up three projects and three articles to ship out to the magazine. If it were a perfect day,...

Custom Cabinet Construction #2: Finishing the base ends

06-24-2010 01:58 AM by rhett | 1 comment »

I am going to assume you have read my previous entries for this series, this way I can just keep rambling without backtracking. So, putting a finished end on that base cabinet. There are more than a few ways to do this and unless you are building a galley style, wall to wall kitchen, you will need to think of a way to address this issue. There are more than a few ways to reach your desired destination and each way will give your finished project a look all its own. Let me begin by say...

Spice Cabinet

06-23-2010 01:30 AM by Troy | 8 comments »

THE COMMISSION  Last week, a gentlemen called me about a project he had in mind for his daughter. He brought over a custom, stained-glass panel that he wanted to use for a wall-mounted, spice cabinet door panel. The client is no stranger to woodworking but doesn’t have time and all his tools on hand or he would have done it himself. I am thankful that he trusted me to create his vision of a lovely gift though. We also had a good time talking about tools and such and I was pretty ha...
