Little Journey's #1: Back Log

06-01-2008 04:13 PM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

Catch upThis is a project I started from quartersawn white oak scraps about three years ago. However, I got involved in other things, so it has been bouncing around in storage getting slightly damaged during the interim. I took it out to inspect it and start the finishing process; aka actually completing the piece.This is from “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” by Robert Lange. The Little Journey’s Bookstand was originally made by Roycroft to to hold a set of books...

Woodshop Safety for Kids

05-05-2008 04:52 PM by WoodworkersResource | 10 comments »

In talking with some of my woodworking friends on this subject, I learned that most were not comfortable with kids being in their shops because of safety concerns. Granted, there are extra precautions that must be taken when kids are present, but don’t let this keep you from introducing woodworking to your kids, grandchildren, or even the kids up the street.

Confidence

04-24-2008 05:42 PM by Eric | 8 comments »

Last month, I posted about my adventures in hand-cut veneer. I was pretty proud of myself for how well it turned out; I felt a bit like David fighting Goliath (Goliath being the giant hurdle of working without power tools) and cutting off his big fat head. I got several very positive comments both here and over on my personal blog. The comments made me feel like even though I am still brand new in the craft, that there are already some things I can do well. One comment in particular (from ...
