Raised beds for my garden #1: New raised beds for the garden

10-20-2013 03:26 AM by exelectrician | 3 comments »

The original raised beds are now at the end of their life. The 1 1/2” thick boards were a mixed bag of a “builders sling” from Dun Lumber. I noticed that the primed cedar facia boards lasted the longest, in fact some of them are still in very good shape, the raw unpainted construction lumber rotted first. This is what I came up with after reading page 48 The Woodwright’s Guide by Roy Underhill.

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #2: Hand tools because it made me feel safer, and my first sharpening/honing attempt...

08-08-2014 03:29 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

I’ll admit that I am more a power tool woodworker than a hybrid (and nowhere close to a hand too user). But the more projects I get under my belt, the more I realize that in order to improve as a wood worker, I’m going to have to get more used to hand tools. In some cases, it is probably safer, and not necessarily slower than power tools. I recently edge glued quite a few short pine scraps, to make them wide enough for a few kids toy projects. After edge jointing the pieces,...

handsawgeek's Lathe Stand: A Hand Tool Build For a Tailed Appliance #9: Thanksgiving Holiday Progress

12-01-2014 03:46 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

Last week, I took some much needed vacation days from work, so I was able to enjoy a substantial amount of shop time. In a previous post, I mentioned that I don’t usually like to have more than one project going at one time, but an exception was made this week, given the fact that a lot of time was made available. First, the lathe stand: The four pedestal supports were sawn to rough size, and two of them were shaped to final dimension, squared up, and finish planed. Much of the...

Posted better shop photos

01-18-2008 04:45 AM by CharlieM1958 | 3 comments »

Okay, when I finally got around to posting shop details (while I was at work today), I just threw up some project photos I had on the office computer that just happened to show parts of my humble little shop. But the weren’t really of the shop. So I snapped a few just now to give a little more accurate sense of the miserable conditions I’m forced to work under. <g> Anyway, you can see them here.

Carving a niche into tree trunks using a very large lathe and chainsaws (Star Tribune article)

04-10-2009 04:49 AM by Craig55 | 3 comments »

Found an article on the Star Tribune web site. Very interesting what Virgil can do with logs! Edina, Minnesota artist Virgil Leih uses a chainsaw and a very large lathe capable of turning 2,000 pound logs.

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #2: It's Here!

08-18-2010 10:32 PM by Mark Colan | 3 comments »

I ordered the Incra LS32-TS-WF from Tuesday Aug 10. Woodcraft forwards such orders to Incra for shipment. Incra shipped it Thursday Aug 12 via UPS ground. I got a tracking number only by asking for it, but it correctly predicted that UPS would have it at my door today, and it came this afternoon. Two boxes. One is long and narrow; that would be rails, and perhaps some fence parts. The other deeper and wider, not as long, and weighing about 50 lbs. Kind of mystifying. Wh...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #127: Scrollgirl's Day Off

10-08-2010 02:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Besides the days I take small road trips, it is rare for me to have what I would officially call a “day off”. Actually, I don’t think that it is possible. My work is so entwined with my personal life that I am unable separate the two aspects of my life. I only think this would be a bad thing if I didn’t love my job as much as I do. I get frequent warnings from many well-wishers who tell me that by doing woodworking as a “job” I have put myself at risk o...

Mississippi Hardwood dealer

12-22-2010 03:51 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

Hey guys. I have been wanting to get some fresh materials for projects. I did not want to pay for shipping or the fuel to go get it. So I spent about 3 hours last night looking for a local dealer. I found one In Clinton MS. Pickens Hardwoods Inc. These nice people were not on the woodfinder site. And the nearest dealer was a 4 hour drive. This place is gigantic. And the owners are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I love living in the hospitality state. Here is the site site.They...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #476: Surprises

09-29-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am not really big on surprises. Not that I am a party pooper or anything like that. I just like things in order and organized and surprises usually blow even the best laid plans out of the water. Little things I don’t mind. But for the most part I like to see what is coming and be able to plan for it. Maybe it is because I am so careful at how I allot my time. There is always so much to do and it is sometimes quite a challenge to accomplish everything. Throwing even a small c...
