Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

1662 days ago by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...

Spiral End Mallet #1: The Lay-Out

1812 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

Thanks for your interest in my new Spiral-End Mallet, based on the Lazy Larry Spiral Cheese Boards, by degoose. Obviously with the small size of the pieces, the band saw jig Larry uses wouldn’t work. This is how I adapted his GREAT idea for something a little different.The first step is to make the medallion that is inlayed in the end of the mallet. (Yes it is inlayed—-do you think I’m totally nuts?) If you are looking for a fast, easy project, this may not be it, but the en...

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #3: Hauling out - the fun begins

2198 days ago by Scotach | 9 comments »

So, it’s been a few days since my last post on this project, and what a wild few days it has been. The boat was hauled out and set up on blocking in the boat yard, where she’ll be for the next 30 days or so. We’ve finished all of the glue-ups for the transom, and have been hard at work wrecking out the transom and other parts of the boat. Once we removed the transom and had a look down below, we found a few other significant areas that needed to be addressed on this boat....

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #1: The Beginning

2205 days ago by Betsy | 11 comments »

So you asked for it, so here it is—- a blog about Sketchup. Now the first thing you have to know is that I’m a complete novice and so this journey we are taking will be interesting. I’m looking forward to the challenge of bringing Sketchup to life for you and me! The other thing is that until Saturday I’m not going to be able to do much. My home internet is down until then when the repair guy comes, so I’m doing a little bit from work before the work day start...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

2292 days ago by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...
