Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #2: Branded. Then finishing begins.

11-21-2018 10:06 PM by kordwood | 2 comments »

The little plant stand/table project is moving along. This morning — at an ungodly hour before work — I gave it a final sanding with 180-grit, vacuumed the pores, branded it with my mark, and saturated the whole thing with TransTint dye. I was particularly happy with the two half-lap joints that hold the base together. I’ve only done a few, but these are by far the best. Can’t wait to see them totally finished. Next up: Waterlox sealer, General Finishes walnut glaze, and...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #1: E-M-L in process

11-18-2018 03:29 PM by kordwood | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this little piece seems share-worthy. It’s an homage to three of my favorite Arts and Crafts pioneers: Harvey Ellis, Charles Limbert and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. They all bring a different aesthetic, but mashed up, the A&C commonality becomes clear. The Ellis influence: Most evident in the delicate edge of the top. The Mackintosh influences: The overall proportion and the inward angles of the legs. The Limbert influence: ...

Chicken Coop #2: Work fast, the chicks have landed

05-04-2016 04:31 PM by ConnieReed | 7 comments »

I’ve been using every nice day we’ve had, that I can, to work on my chicken coop. I am having so much fun with this! Part of it is being proud of myself for tackling this project, and doing pretty good with it too, and part of it is the crafting part of it. I didn’t simply draw up plans and go to the lumber yard. For one thing, I doubted my ability to precisely follow the plans. I don’t have the skills or the tools to make all the exact-perfect cuts, angles, etc. I nee...

Chicken Coop #1: Here chick chick chick....

04-12-2016 04:16 PM by ConnieReed | 10 comments »

Sooooooo…. my daughter wants chickens. We’ve never raised chickens? How hard can it be? First issue will be housing. We have plenty of room, but other than one incredibly antique fencepost (this land was part of a plantation from the 1700’s, probably the last time it had fences), we have no boundaries. So, security and housing will be item 1 on the agenda. I can build a chicken coop.. I think… . Well, I drew up plans and realized right away that unless I wanted t...

Cutting Board Tablet Stand

01-17-2016 09:50 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

I had an oak pallet which I broke down and was able to salvage enough to make two iPad stands. They were made as gifts for Christmas. My wife showed me pictures of these on Etsy saying that her sister wanted one. So one went to her and the other went to my mother. Here is a video of the build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj_dzBfL1UA

Thoughts On Working With Reclaimed Wood

05-21-2015 03:11 AM by michaelray | 6 comments »

Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...

Japanese Tool Box #1: Cutting Sides & Square Tenons

04-05-2015 01:23 PM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

I actually broke down and sharpened the blade on one of my crappy (not the crappiest, next one up) little block planes. Made some shavings. Not exactly the right tool for the job and the blade wasn’t dull anymore, just not as sharp as it needed to be. Resorted to a bit of hand sanding with a block and some 120 grit. Inching my way toward ‘real’ woodworking! I am going to do some square mortise/tenon joints for the ends of the box. This time, I am doing it “rightR...

Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 4 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos
