"Scrimshaw Techniques" Book by Jim Stevens is Now Ready For Sale

01-16-2008 03:56 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago I blogged that a new book on Scrimshaw artwork was being authored by Jim Stevens from Colorado, called “Scrimshaw Techniques.” Jim was nice enough to include some of my scrimshaw work in his book, and so I have been anxious to see how it came out. The book was released for sale a couple of weeks ago at Schiffer’s website, and I found it this morning on Amazon as well. As soon as my purchased copy arrives, I’ll give a book review and tell you what...

Bed on hold Office takes to the fore front

07-15-2009 10:55 PM by Rustic | 3 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals, Well SWMBO has spoken, (again)LOL. She has told me that the bed can wait a little longer. She is now wanting the office done. That should not be too bad. I have a 3 foot wide by 6 foot long walnut book matched veneer table top that my father made 20 + years ago. I have one cabinet support for the top. I am going to build another one. I am also going to attach a 2×4 to the wall to act as a ledger. Then I need to get either glass or plexiglass to cover the top to prot...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #5: Breadboard Ends

09-08-2009 09:34 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

While I’m ammonia fuming another project, I figured I’d make progress on this one. I pulled a WoodWhisperer and threw away the tape measure. I milled the ends to the proper thickness (which also gave me some nice mahogany veneer). I can’t tell you how lovely working mahogany is, compared to oak. Then while the stock was still one long piece, I used the table saw blade to make the dado that fits the tongue on the top (Darrell calls it the “core”). I achieved ...

Workshop Upgrades #2: Ridgid 4511 table saw fence upgrade

11-12-2010 05:57 AM by jcwalleye | 3 comments »

Since opening the door into the new shop I’ve been without a router table as my old one was built into a bench anchored to the wall that was cut through. I needed to get that replaced and have always liked the idea of building a router table into a table saw wing. So I made plans to upgrade my Ridgid 4511 granite top table saw. The first thing was to upgrade the rails and fence. The Ridgid fence has a few limitations, but actually works pretty well once its adjusted properly. I’ve been...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

Old age & tools

02-15-2012 01:47 AM by BoxBuilder | 3 comments »

Since I have had both shoulders operated on this year & am under surgeon’s orders not to overdo it, it appears I will have to modify my shop. I will probably not be working on large projects for some time so will concentrate on smaller projects when I’m allowed back in the “man cave”. I will also be thinking of selling my Shopsmith & accessories in favor of some smaller benchtop tools. Mentioned this to several local friends & they are getting the word out ...
