Tonight, I Finished My Second Custom Steak Knife Set. Is it the Last?

12-10-2007 07:48 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

It’s been a long week, but I am excited to say that I just finished up the 2nd Steak Knife set tonight about 10:15pm CT. Sure, I could go to bed, but not after I blog the milestone. But, first, let me apologize for not providing much in the area of notable, or supportive input the past couple of months. I just haven’t had time to do any reading on LJ, only worrying about getting my own projects and blogs posted. I swore off of LJ until the steak knife commissions were complete,...

"This Old Mold House" #7: Making a deal on a house full of mold…what’s up with that?

12-09-2007 04:51 PM by Dusty | 12 comments »

Most people I know who are contemplating a home purchase, hire a licensed inspector to analyze the house in great detail and prepare a report for them so they can make an informed decision. I take an entirely different approach. If it’s not an old crack house, ready for condemnation, full of mold, falling down, in need of desperate repairs or a bull dozer, then I’m not interested in buying it anyway. I wouldn’t know what to do with a house that wasn’t sorely in need of wo...

Maple Picture Frame

12-08-2007 06:45 AM by itsme_timd | 3 comments »

Just completed my Maple picture frame (posted in projects) and I sure learned a lot from it! The finishing really gave me a hard time, I think it turned out fairly well but would have liked it a little smoother. On to my next project – a Mission style couch table.

The Craftsman's Path #19: Queen Anne Side Table - Turning and shaping the feet

12-04-2007 06:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

After band sawing the legs to rough shape in my last post, the next steps in developing the legs were to turn and shape the feet and to smooth and mark them for final shaping. This was an interesting process. There’s a good description and lots of pictures in the latest post on my blog. Let me know what you think – thanks for reading!

My New Router Table #8: A Proud Moment

12-04-2007 03:07 AM by Blake | 24 comments »

So, No more messin’ around! Its time to cut the hole! With my template all biscuited and glued up, I shaved off the other half of the biscuits and sanded everything flat. With a little sanding and shaving off the inside I got the router plate to fit perfectly inside. So I decided to use my fabricated router plate template to make a one-piece template. This way I could also test the accuracy of it. So I sandwiched together the template, one solid piece of plywood which would be the...

Hi All, I posted some details and pics of my workshop today as well as some projects. I completed my first project recently – a headbaord for our guest bedroom. I’ve made some picture frames and working on a more ‘deluxe’ picture frame now. I’m going to need to jump in and look for some answers soon, the questions are starting to pile up!.

The Hole in the Wall

12-02-2007 11:02 PM by MsDebbieP | 20 comments »

Last month I painted a little alcove in my living room and made it into a little sitting area. I painted the walls a risky shade of green and absolutely loved it. The walls change colours all day long, depending on the light. It can be lime green in the afternoon, and then granny smith apple green, and then darken down to a sage green at night. I love it.. It was my little “happy place” to go and relax and rejuvenate. (sorry, no “before” pictures) Then, we decided t...

The Craftsman's Path #18: Queen Anne Side Table - Roughing out the legs

12-02-2007 01:06 AM by Mark Mazzo | 6 comments »

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was recently inspired to build a period reproduction piece of furniture. I chose to do a side table in the Queen Anne style based on a Glen Huey design with cabriole legs, scrolled aprons and a single drawer. I like this style and it poses some challenges in developing new skills. The picture is Glen Huey’s version. I’ve started down the path of building this piece and I hope that you’ll follow along as I post entries about its de...

Hi Everyone! Newbie Intro...

11-30-2007 05:55 PM by itsme_timd | 9 comments »

Hi All, I’m just getting started in woodworking and just completed my first project. A simple sqaure frame headboard for our guest bedroom – I’ll get a pic up soon. I’ve got a couple other projects in the works – a picture frame and a mission-style couch table. Trying to learn as much as I can about methods tips and tricks. One of the exciting things about taking on a new hobby is that you have so much to learn, everything is new to me and even simple th...
