03-25-2011 01:17 AM by Brian024 | 3 comments »

Here is a video on how to mill up lumber, even though my methods are ones I learned here. Also this is one of the videos I’ll use for when I teach classes at my church, just burning it to a dvd.

Starting My Business #1: Building up Inventory

05-03-2011 09:57 AM by ChrisCrafts | 3 comments »

It’s 12:30 AM and I am up with my 9 year old who has his very first experience with the stomach flu. Poor kid has only missed 3 days of school in his life. When he called today and asked to come home I was out the door in 30 seconds. I figured if he was asking to come home it must be something serious. Alright so here we go! After finally getting my Shop up and running it is time to see if I can pay for my hobby by selling the stuff I make. I have registered the website and hav...

Military Display case...Semper Fi Pops...

01-02-2012 04:09 AM by Cleveland | 3 comments »

My Father was a former/inactive/out-of-shape Hollywood Marine before his passing almost three years ago…The Marines even came and watched over him during his funeral …He was also a Carpenter…Although the Corps didn’t want me I followed in his footsteps as a Carpenter…..I thought it would be a good way to honor him and the Bad Ass uniform that he wore for quite a spell by building a display case to house that Uniform, his Medals, the Sword the NCO’s carried ...

Corner Shelf

03-25-2012 04:04 AM by SuburbanDon | 3 comments »

I finished this corner shelf for my sister. She will paint it. Nothing special but the heart detail was something new for me. The curved front is something I have not done much.

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig #4216 #1: Made the buy!!!!

07-08-2012 06:42 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

OK….. I pulled the trigger on the Porter Cable #4216 dovetail jig. I need it for the kitchen in the new house and I am up against a huge deadline. The few extra dollars I paid for this unit is for the templates included. Mini dovetails and box joints and a through dovetail and box joint jig. Now, LJs, I have a Leigh D4R so I guess the question is, “Why in the world did you ‘downgrade’? Well, I have about 130 or so drawers to build. I am hoping this jig will speed up...

Old Sargent Planes #5: Fulton or Fulton Tool Company.

02-28-2014 05:54 PM by Don W | 3 comments »

You will find more information and more pictures on my blog. The problem with being on a quest for knowledge is the endless circles you often get stuck in, and the off roads that follow. I’m always looking for information on older Sargent hand planes. So recently I bought a hand plane off ebay that is an obvious early Sargent 409. It’s got Rosewood, a type 4 base, with a type 3 frog, and a “Fulton Tool Co” cutter. The type 4 base dates it to 1911 to 1918. I know Sargent made ...

Working with recycled timber #32: PTLT fixed section and hinge rework

06-08-2014 08:39 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I decided to get on with the rework on the Pallet Timber Low Table, this weekend so after dismantling everything and cutting off the ugly vee grove at the hinge joints I found I would have to re manufacture the fixed section of the table top due to so much material being removed. I replicated the fixed section as close as possile to the dimensions of the larger tilt up section. Here it is about to get the edges profiled. Due to the material being removed from the edge of original...

Oakite (sp)

08-08-2008 04:16 AM by Joero | 3 comments »

Does anyone remember a product from years ago called (I believe) OAKITE.If memory serves it was a powder that, when mixed with water became a caustic stripper for refinishing wood.I’d like to find it if it’s still out there. I may be mistaken and it was used for stripping paint from metal…. The ol’ gray cell’s ain’t what they used to be.Any input would be great.Thanks Joero

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...
