Hi LJs! First of all I wish all of you a very happy 2014, full of sawdust and splinters and luv ;) As a quick update, after the worst storm I ever came across, things have suddenly changed to the best in a single day in mid-november. As of now I still won’t have much time available for posting and general lurking here (or even on flickr) but in a nutshell: it’s a new life! Cheers! Thomas
I made some alterations, became disgusted with it, and am returning back to the design. The first picture is the current incarnation. I have the foot rest off right now because I am leaning towards something different. I’m also considering redoing the top, making it adjustable and possibly more circular in design. A bigger change is thinning the legs down from 2.25” to 1.5”. Will see where it goes. The second picture was the direction I went in when I was fed-up with the des...
It has been a while since I posted anything about the new shop. Mainly due to the fact we’ve been working on the actual house, moving, dealing with family and the holidays, etc. However, I have got a little done in the shop since I took off a few days around the first of the year to get a start on getting everything up and running. I got a lot done including moving about 95% of the tools where I want them. I did loose one day of my “shop time” due to a trip to Baltimore ...
This blog has little to do with woodworking. But it does involve the larger project called Life. I received some recent emails expressing concern about my whereabouts. To those I have befriended on this site. I give my deepest apologies for falling out of touch and believe I should offer an explanation. It all started a few months ago. My washing machine started making a horrible sound when spinning. Time researched online indicated that the problem was either due to a bad coupling or a...
To all my LJ family out there………It has been quite some time since I have posted any projects and or had much involvement at all on LJ’s…….The last 6 months have been like a roller coaster that you wouldn’t believe…On a pleasant note, I started the buildout of the “finishing room” on my work shop around August of last year. Everything was going fine, I almost got it completed by November and then the weather hit. Snow and rain like anything so it really put the brakes on wrapping everything up...
http://www.woodworks-by-donna.comA long overdue update to my web site is hereby complete. I hope. I had not added new projects since 2009 so there are some new things to see. New stuff is at the top of each page, and it goes backwards as you move down the page. Let me know if something doesn’t work. Thanks, Donna
Just a few shot of the workshop after a major reshuffle of the equipment to fit the laser…
After a long day in my custom woodworking shop, I take a walk through of current projects I’m working on. Custom Bubinga and Walnut home bar, 2 custom wood rocking chairs from Curly Big Leaf Maple and Cocobolo. 3’’ thick – live edge Bubinga!
This is a really quick video of what I’m working on in my custom one person wood working shop, I specialize in sculpted furniture but lately have started to get into some other types of woodworking. Thanks for having a look and I promise i’ll have some better videos soon, little more detail and longer.
It’s been a while since the last shop update, but I wanted to wait for a lot of progess before making this update. We have been working really hard every weekend to get thing done. So here are the main tasks we (my Dad, Brother and I) have completed since the last update: - The outside shell is finished- The asphalt was teared out from the heli-pad- Put all the plumbing into the ground for the drains, toilet, sinks, and shower. I don’t have pictures of this, but it was the hard...
