I finished my wand in woodshop today! I used the lathe and turned it freehand without any final product in mind. Ten inches long. I think it’s cedar or red oak. I just used a square scrap, so it could be anything, really.

Here is a nice workbench.

“Every piece of lumber has three kinds of surfaces: edges, faces and ends. A good workbench should be able to hold your lumber so you can easily work on these three kinds of surfaces. Any bench that falls short of this basic requirement will hold you back as your woodworking skills advance.”  (LostArtPress)

Building a Roubo workbench rerun - 27

(Originally written Apr. 29, 2010)

My workbench is pretty much done. There are still a few things to do. I still need to make a sliding deadman, but I’ve found that I have other ways to deal with edge planing longer boards for now. I also need to tune up the handle for the vise, put some boards across the bottom stretchers for extra storage, and make a real pin for the leg vise instead of the 3/8” oak dowel that I’m using. I also want to hang an additional fluorescent light fixture above the bench.

But the bench is in position, and I’ve got the key parts of my wall tool storage up and running. As you can see, I decided to go with unfinished pine boards. I might decide to paint the pine boards later on, but that will be easy for me to do if I go that route, since all the tool storage is just screwed onto the pine boards.

So I’m finally declaring victory on this project. And it only took 18 months.

The exposed 2x4’s to the left of the bench is where my sharpening table is. It’s not there now so I can mount pine boards onto the 2x4’s like I did for my workbench. Then I’ll push it back in place.

But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again

This is so relevant

This year July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So copy this and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui, the one who does not copy, will be without money. Figured I’d pass this on!

Outbid on the ancient hunk of iron lathe I’ve been infatuated with for the last couple weeks. I’m simultaneously depressed and relieved.

Artist Hillary White (previously featured here) has created an extensive and completely awesome series of paintings, entitled Pop Reinterpretation, for which she beautifully recreates painting by the Old Masters depicting a wide variety of pop culture icons in place of the original subjects.

R2-D2 becomes Francois-Xavier Fabre’s Portrait Of A Man, Kermit the Frog becomes Frans Hals’ Portrait of a Young Woman, Optimus Prime becomes Anthony Van Dyck’s Self Portrait With Sunflower, and so on.

Hillary has painted so many of these wonderful portraits, it’s an almost unbearably awesome accomplishment. If you like these even half as much as we do, check out the entire Pop Reinterpretation gallery to see the rest.
