In this episode I start working on 4 bookends. After all the parts are jointed I laminate 2 blocks together to make a 3 in thick letter for each book end. Then I cut out the letters on the scroll saw.

Extremely Average #250: A bit of planning

1440 days ago by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, Today, since I was at my parents, I couldn’t do any woodworking. But I could plan my next project. I have some graph paper and proper drawing tools, so I went to it. I am very excited about my next project. I included a scanned picture of my drawing in tonight’s blog. Brian Ohio State 36 – Miami 24. Go Buckeyes!

Help Needed

1253 days ago by AAWW2005 | 2 comments »

I hope this is appropriate for an LJ blog. I’m thinking about writing a book about how I took my Woodworking hobby and turned it in to a profitable business. I’m simply asking for other peoples input, both positive and negative are welcome. Simply visit and answer a few questions. There’s nothing to buy! Thanks in advanced!

Cummins Mack Bandsaw Cleaning and Tune Up #1: A new, to me, band saw

1213 days ago by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Not long ago I made a blog entry inwhich I discussed the furture purchase of a band saw. Allow me to thank all those who added their insightful thoughts and suggestions. I would have liked to purchase a brand new band saw but that just wasn’t going to happen. So, back to Craig’s List I went. As I searched CL I came across a listing for a 14” Wood Band Saw. What I discovered is that the band saw was a Cummins Mack 14” band saw. The seller was asking $100. I cont...

Jigs and Such #1: PCB220TS Zero Clearance Insert

604 days ago by Chris Moellering | 2 comments »

I picked up my first-ever table saw about three months ago, a Porter-Cable 220 Job site saw. (review) I have been quite happy with it, but it does have a few drawbacks. Probably the biggest, and most often-noted is the funky metal insert next to the blade. This design does not allow for standard zero-clearance inserts to be used, and no one makes one for this saw. Having got some cash from Santa, I have my eye on a dado blade set, but only if I can make an insert to work well wit...

Tool Tote #1: For My Son's Birthday

473 days ago by Derec | 2 comments »

Well I finally decided on a design and got it started. I was fitting the pieces here in the pic, to make sure everything was square. Tomorrow I plan to sand it down, and then put it together using my Kreg jig then put a coat of Linseed oil on it. I am pretty pleased so far, but I think the next one I make I want to use box joints.

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

129 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1359: The "Day Off" - Trying Again!

38 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have to smile to myself when I think about yesterday.I do so because the way that the day turned out for me. It wasn't bad, mind you, but it was totally NOT what I intended it to be.I had worked so hard over the weekend on my "Nevermore" painting pattern. I had finished  painting the design sometime Saturday I think and I had committed myself to finishing up the pattern by Sunday. Normally, this would not be a huge or difficult task, but the pattern is headed for an ...
