Woodworking For Therapy #24: THINGS UNDONE?

11-23-2014 01:01 AM by Steve Kreins | 14 comments »

Jim Rochester posted a project titled” “The Hardest Project I've Ever Had to make.” It is a box for his Dad’s remains who just passed away. I can understand how hard that would be. I am thankful that Jim shared his loss and his project. It reminded me that I have a few things left to do for my family before this cancer gets the best of me. It has metastasized and is now in my abdomen and lungs, so like Jim, I don’t have a lot of time to finish up some project...

Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 19 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Men's Valet Box

08-12-2014 06:24 PM by Blackie_ | 9 comments »

I’ve had a few ask how I make my hybrid open top men’s valet box, mitered joints mixed with bandsaw box. This is a design that I came up with one day while out in the shop and just let it take shape and made some changes along the way, under each picture I have given detail on what’s taking place and the procedure. Laminated boards to create a working block, square up the block sides using any means necessary, you want the block as square as possible. I like to use kno...

Demystifying Door Construction

07-20-2014 04:52 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 34 comments »

Constructing passage doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. One of the ideas that I really want to impress on everybody is this: Don’t be intimidated by new projects. When approaching a new project, most of the woodworking actions needed for it, you have done on other projects. By recognizing this, you create the mindset you need to build something that seems intimidating such as a door. I hop...

Dust Collector Testing and Upgrade #1: Dust Collector Upgrade – Pt 1 – Upgrading to HEPA Cartridge Filter

06-01-2014 11:40 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

I have wanted to do some upgrades for my dust collection system for some time now. But before I add the new HEPA cartridge filter from Wynn Environmental, I want to take some measurements. I test my system as it is now with a felt bag that is supposed to filter down to 1.5-2 microns and get a reading. I test with and without an Oneida Super Dust Deputy. Then I add the HEPA filter and take some more reading and compare the results. I know this is some pretty dry material; however the ...

06-02-2013 01:12 PM by huff | 20 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 5 Summary As you’ve probably figured out by now, pricing, marketing and selling your woodworking is not an easy task, but its all part of a woodworking business and something you have to learn and improve upon just like you do with your woodworking skills.
