As the deep freeze continues to grip both Canada and much of the USA, we here in Nova Scotia have been very fortunate in that instead of bitter cold and snow, we are having rain. In looking at our weather service, it appears that although we are slightly below freezing today and may receive a small amount of snow, our temperatures will be nothing like the biting cold that much of North America has experience. In fact, yesterday was almost ‘balmy’ as it rained for most of the day...
Despite so many things that are going on, I was able to sit down and concentrate and get the drawing for my next project completed. It shouldn’t have been the task that it became, but there were just so many odd things going on that it seemed that I couldn’t get the job going. Once I started though, I put on a couple of good movies and was able to stay focused and get the job done. I think in the end it is going to be pretty nice. The project is for the February (I think!) i...
It’s funny how those appointments (no matter how early they are) can mess up the entire day. Yesterday I had an early eye appointment, and even though it only lasted for an hour or so, it took quite a while to get back on track. My eyes have been giving me minor problems lately and it was time anyway for my annual checkup. I find that I am having a bit of trouble reading the computer screen – even with my glasses or contacts and as a result, in the past weeks I have been send...
wow i havent been out to the shed in so long i guess its due to the fact that i have just finished all my exams and i really just was to lazy to do some woodworking but theres a big change about to happen, in about two weeks or so i will create a youtube channel, website and hopefully a Facebook page to do with me building projects. years ago i used to have youtube videos but they were dull and boring so i am giving it another shot, and i have to say with me being more experienced and with th...
What an extremely productive weekend I had! It isn’t always that I can claim that so I am pretty darn proud of all that I accomplished over the last couple of days. It feels good to work hard and actually see some physical results of that work right in front of you. That isn’t always the case. There are many times when I seem to work hard and even though every minute of the day is spent ‘doing something’ there is little to show for it. But this week, it will be a bo...
One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have gotten older I say to myself, “I know I have read something about this particular procedure”, but I...
We all enjoyed making this custom bed but, I am glad it is finished. I have posted it as a finished project. I hope you all enjoyed the process in making this. If you guy’s and gal’s have any questions on this project please, feel free to ask.
My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...
