It’s All About Donating! #5: Rustic Intarsia

07-29-2019 02:45 PM by justoneofme | 11 comments »

After a 3-week painting marathon to beautify our dwelling, then reclaiming my workshop again … I’m finally back to this Rustic Intarsia art piece. Even though it had been put on hold, constant thoughts of shaping the design parts kept momentum driving me forward in anticipation!Experience has taught me to prepare for a projectile or two! When it comes to rough sanding tiny pieces it’s definitely necessary to have a firm grip on things! But … when only the slightest brush agains...

Cedar Outdoor Storage #1: Work in progress...nearing assembly stage

07-12-2019 08:24 PM by agilbert66 | 0 comments »

A year or so ago I began thinking of a storage solution to keep our outdoor patio cushions looking nice during the winter months and also to get some of the kids’ toys out of the garage. I found a plan for an outdoor storage unit on a canadian woodworking site ( and used the general concept to come up with my own more decorative/ornate design. Instead of the boring flat design in that plan, I decided to create a series...

Hi all, I have been asked by my wife to make her a small foot stool and I had some hardwood offcuts floating around so here it is.The off cuts were in the shape of a triangle so I used a gum leaf as a template to make a cut out design before joining the two pieces and carved in a section for some gum nuts which I will fill with epoxy.I just brought some Record carving tools so I thought I would it would be nice give the edges a bit of scolloping so I tried my hand at that, I like the look ...

I did not add an extra half inch as I had before due to the boards shifting while gluing. I was pretty careful to remove as little as possible on the jointer and bandsaw so the final width ended up being 2 and 7/8” which should really be no problem. I later cut the angle at which it ties into the other legs...

Lounge Chair #3: Arms

The arms use the same mold as the legs and are cut to the same width of 3” but are quite a bit shorter which almost makes the curve more dramatic. After two previous glue ups and this time using shorter stock, things were a lot cleaner and a lot quicker. Both the front and end of each arm is cut at an angle so it doesn’t sit square and also, on the end, for aesthetic reasons.
