My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1793: A Lesson from "Pancakes"

10-24-2016 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

When last I left you on Friday, I had began a new artistic adventure. For my first time ever, I was using a new medium (New to me, that is!) in drawing with pastel pencils and blocks. I had seen a video from the very talented wildlife artist, Jason Morgan, in which he shared his 'discovery' of the joys of using "Pastelmat" pastel paper by Clairfontaine to draw with. He mentioned that it changed his entire perspective on pastel drawing. I was intrigued. I just so happene...

Trestle Table #20: More Work on Leg Assemblies

10-24-2016 05:40 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I spent this evening working to have the tenons fit into their respective mortises; in the foot and the cap parts. I am so glad I took that Woodcraft sharpening class. Having wicked sharp blades and hand chisels mae all the difference now. I trimmed the ends of the tenons at my bandsaw. The double tenons fit into the foot; whereas the CAP mortise is a single wide. To refine the tenons i fixed the leg part in my workbench’s vise and used my very sharp hand chisels. I h...

Pine Auger bit box #5: Updates..

10-24-2016 02:24 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Been busy at times, other times I been playing Hooky from the shop. Just to catch up as to where I’m at on this project… Holder #2 was glued up, and the blanks for two others as well… Have those out of the clamps now. Sanded down, and hinges installed.. Next holder has been cut to size, and flattened out. But when I got the rest of the bits out, I found I had a few more than I thought. Both holders are full, and I still have all of those bit? The BIG a...

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #11: How I prep card scrapers.

10-23-2016 11:37 PM by Mainiac Matt | 4 comments »

I make no claim to be a “real” galoot with the card scraper, but this process to renew the burr has worked for me. After a lot of use, the burr will get mangled and need to be created afresh. I start by setting up the scraper in a make shift jig using the bench vise and a couple scrap blocks of identical thickness. I set the scraper just above the blocks using a feeler gauge to get uniform height exposed. Then I file the old burr off with a mill file, using the jig to keep ...

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #10: Panels Cleaned Up

10-23-2016 11:14 PM by Mainiac Matt | 2 comments »

I finished the 5 panel glue ups and put the clamping cauls and clamps away, and cleared the bench for the next step, cleaning up the panels. I wiped off as much of the glue that squeezed out off right away with wet paper towels, so the tops were in pretty good shape. The bottoms were a different story. I like to take the big boogers off by paring with a large 2” timber framing chisel, using it like a slick. Then I hit the joints with a card scraper. And I’m read...

Garage Remodel #15: sealing and painting of ceiling done. difference between careful sanding and hasten sanding

10-23-2016 02:49 PM by Holbs | 1 comment »

Sealing & painting on a 6’ ladder is rough :) Tried to use a pole, but just seemed more comfortable getting up on the 6’ ladder and going about it by hand with a roller. Here is the difference in sanding mud & tape. At first in the first picture, I was careful and diligent to have nice smooth surface. As time wore on at the achingly slow progress in the second picture, I went for the “just get it done” look. I had to remind myself it’s just a garage,...

Shop stuff #60: Starting on the coffee table

10-23-2016 02:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Now that I have made the track for the circular saw, and got the planer tuned up, I can actually start building the coffee table that I promised my wife for her birthday back in January. I am taking a bit of a different tack on this series of videos by making them shorter. I think that will make viewing them easier. Most of my build videos I have made longer because I thought I would lose continuity but I think they may be a bit long for viewing. This series I am going to try to keep each...

Building a Picture Frame for a Fish Print

10-23-2016 10:11 AM by beahan | 0 comments »

This picture frame was specifically made to house a fish print of a fish I caught earlier this year. I included a miniature frame within the frame in order to hold the lure I used to catch the fish. I know I will get comments on the lack of finish, but I chose to leave it without a finish because I thought it looked nice the way it is. View on YouTube
