new ideas #7: I made it into the shop finally

04-20-2011 02:24 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I have been grabbing an hour here and there letting things like the grass slide (I am going to do it when I finish this post). I have 6 boxes well on there way, pieces cut for another 9, and that takes care of most of Christmas. Here are a few pics of my progress so far. I have used a lot of different woods and think that most are listed in early post in this thread. I hope to be able to post some of them completely finished soon. As with all things, time will tell. !https://s3.am...

new ideas #6: back in the shop

04-11-2011 01:37 AM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

So I have finally finished most of the remodel. Just a few more loose ends to tie up. So I have found a few hours to get into the shop. This is what i have so far. Once again I have to thank Andy., for I am using his style palm boxes. I wanted to give them a spin. I am also taking inspiration from his art boxes with the grinding. I don’t have a sanding disc for my angle grinder, plus these boxes only have 3/8 inch sides so I am using drum sanders. Both on a drill press and in my...

new ideas #5: finally

04-03-2011 11:18 PM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

Well I finally made enough progress on the bedroom and half bath remodel that I have had a chance to sneak off into my shop to start a couple projects and make a little saw dust. I started 2 of the 5 eye glass boxes and while doing so I have begun to narrow down the design on the laptop trays I have in mind. I have a couple of pics here of the beginnings of the boxes This one is for my son. It is just the glue up for the top. It is walnut and blood wood This one is for my wife....

A Few Boxes Under Contruction

02-24-2011 09:11 AM by rkoorman | 1 comment »

Hello LJ’s Last weekend I started on some small boxes, just a bit of fun. These projects are a nice way to try out new ideas and see if they work. The first serie’s are made from walnut with a top of pau amarello with maple and walnut veneer. The second attempt is based on the stringbox-design i saw on LJ. This is my first attempt and this kind of box making. The body is wenge and the veneer is maple. I’ll try and post some more pictures when it’s ...

Microcosms, a trip to a smaller world #1: Tiny Home Made Plywood and Banding.

12-03-2010 03:29 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

I started this as a forum topic http://lumberjocks.com/topics/22441 but the way it’s going, it should have been a blog so I’m changing horses in mid stream. To bring things up to speed, I started out fooling around with the idea of thin plywood because I was bored in the shop waiting for finish coats to dry on my real project. It sort of took on a life of it’s own. Here’s a brief recap: The first two shots are of a 4” x 8” sheet of 1/16” walnut ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #160: Back From the Shop

11-10-2010 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was another day that just seemed to go by too quickly. I was fortunate that the rain seemed to let up for the most part for the day so that driving was not so treacherous. We still needed to be cautious though because many of the roads were flooded. About half a kilometer down our own street (right where the river bends) the river was actually so high that it bled into the street and flowed across it. Fortunately it was only a couple of inches deep, but it was a quick reminder th...
