My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #518: Trial and Error and Finally Success
First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the nice comments and personal messages you sent me regarding these ornaments. Nothing makes the extra hours and effort spent more worth it than knowing that others enjoy what you made. Anyone who creates can attest to that. The long hours at the saw spent working on these (as well as my sore back!) are now just a faded memory, replaced by a sense of accomplishment and achievement. It really does me good to see how much everyone likes these, ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1144: Finishing Up Drawing my New Designs
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...
Here is the link to my woodworking blog. Don’t forget to look at the archives. There are a couple videos of a window sill I redid, with nothing but planes. traditionalwoodworks.blogspot.com
Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...
After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...
We built this project the first part of 2007. The house was built in the late 1800’s and is on the National Historical Registry. Its was kitchen, pantry, butlery and small office combined. The case’s were out of UV Maple with poplar frames and doors. All the drawers are dovetailed hard maple finished clear with Blum under mount slides. The crown was in three pieces, the reeded lower portion had X’s that were routed in with a jig. Pieces were then glued in and then carved...
Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
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...
I should have done this Blog before I did my last one.It would have been in order that way. I hope you still like it. Thank you Lumberjocks and Happy woodworking.
