my new shop #1: my new shop

03-29-2009 02:30 PM by wooleywoodsmith | 3 comments »

as some of you might know we are moving. Its a good move but never the less it is a move. We are very fortunate to work for the mgmt co that oversees our new place. Fortunate in the fact that we can get into the place before we move in. Our actual move in date is May first and it is vacant now. Our new house is a side by side duplex, 2bedroom 1 3/4 bath with a mostly finished basement. The previous tenents really trashed the place big thyme so there are alot of new repairs being done. ...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

06-19-2009 02:21 AM by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

I Hate Moving! But I Love New Shop Setup!

02-25-2010 08:38 PM by SNSpencer | 3 comments »

I am moving into a new house and I hate the process. The worst parts are lack of internet access and of course, my enter shop is in boxes. I miss putting wood to blade already. But I am excited to set up the new shop. I brought all my garage cabinets from the old place. The best part is that I am going from a 1 car garage with lousy electrical to a two car, extra deep garage with outlets all over the place. There is even a 220 outlet. I may just have to rewire my table saw.

Dovetail Bible Box #6: It's A Wrap

03-05-2010 02:17 AM by OutPutter | 3 comments »

Well, it’s been over three weeks since I put the finish on my box and contemplated putting on the hinges. Since then several things have happened. The weather was cold in Houston for a while and I moved the box inside the house for a while. Over that time, I noticed the bottom had bowed slightly and two small cracks formed in one end. Even though my sliding dovetail construction allowed the sides to move as the bottom contracted and expanded, it didn’t prevent the bottom from ...

Attaching Trophies to Wooden Bases

09-05-2010 08:28 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Guys it’s been a while since I’ve posted, sorry about that. Things have been busy at work and I haven’t had a lot of time. I do appreciate what a great resource this is, and all the help you’ve offered. Well, I’d like your ideas again. I’m working on wooden trophy bases, and I need to figure out how to attach silver trophy cups to those bases. Problem is, those trophy cups weren’t made with attachment in mind. Take a look, here.

Jet 6" JJ6 Jointer #4: two steps forward one step back

10-13-2010 03:58 AM by Camper | 3 comments »

it has been a while since the last update and in the meantime I was able to clean up the jointer real good and figure out what knob does what. I will post some pictures when its up and running, probably the next blog entry. More importantly I was able to find some screws!!! I ended up ordering screws for the new jet 6” jointer after looking around all over the place without much luck. Figured if anything is going to fit, these would be it. Well they arrived today and their thread and...

#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

11-29-2010 02:24 AM by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

delta 8 inch jointer rebuild #1: picked up "new" 8" jointer

05-21-2012 11:34 AM by dbol | 3 comments »

I was thinking about buying a new jointer from grizzly. I even traveled to the showroom in Muncy, PA to look at them. But I ended up getting this from a school auction. I plan on stripping the old paint and painting it a shade of blue.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1114: New Design for the Magazine and Lots of Other Things

08-27-2013 09:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today was the first day of the season that I woke up and it was still pitch dark outside. Even though I am nearly through my first cup of coffee, it still is just now barely getting light. Another sure sign that summer is weaning and autumn and winter are quickly approaching. I need to write quickly today, as the day is already full and looks as if it will be a busy one. My dear kitty Coco is having some problems and I had to call the vet last night. The problems didn’t seem emerge...
