My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1813: Finished Sloth Pastel Drawing

01-13-2017 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Last month, I was thrown a bit off track by life's events. It happens to the best of us. We set our goals.We work to achieve them. And then as we are rolling right along . . . BAM! "Life" gets in the way. It is just part of living. As I get older, I am figuring out that the more resilient and flexible that I am, the easier things are. I have watched family and friends who are perhaps a little bit rigid in their thinking struggle because things aren't quite the same...

Handtool Basics #2: Bevel Edge Western Bench Chisel Shootout

02-20-2017 08:04 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 3 comments »

Hey guys, In this video I compare several popular western bench chisel brands for: ease of sharpening, ergonomics, fit to tasks, and general fit and finish. I compared everything I could get my hands on from ALDI, Harbor Freight, Narex, Irwin Marples, Stanley Sweetheart, and even Lie Nielsen and Veritas. These are all obviously opinions and my methods were anything but scientific, but I hope this gives you a little bit more info before you pick out your next set of chisels. View on You...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #12: Finishing? More Like Starting a Whole New Project

05-25-2014 04:33 AM by TimBridge | 3 comments »

I had read many times before about the three pillars of a craft: Design, Construction, and Finishing. Let me tell me you, after this experience, I truly realize now and appreciate the amount of effort and knowledge and true craftsmanship that goes into finishing. I posted on multiple forums, read many an article, and watched a veritable slew of finishing videos. Videos about outdoor finishing, videos about varnish finishes, articles about the pros and cons of diluting your polurethane. ...

Another pile of pine #3: Part 4: maybe a glue up?

04-04-2015 05:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, mosey back down the steps to the shop, GrandBRATS had showed up, and were acting acting…LOUDLY. Time for me to disappear… Got the rest of the mortises chopped out. Went fairly fast, too. I then set about adding the rebate for the plywood shelf. Nothing too hard about it, at least for the short stretchers Just set the Wards #78 to about 1/2” width, and a 1/4” deep. Checked the depth with a combo square on the plywood itself, too. As for the two lon...

Repurposed #2: The smaller woodworking chisel turned woodshop mini mallet

06-16-2015 07:46 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

There are times in our lives ‘where the pressures that be’ cause one to seek some relief, relaxation and/or solitude. At any rate my woodshop is just that escape. Its like this vessel which I step into and escape to the betterworlds. I have been wanting to make me some small hand planes here recently…like real small. The kind that would be great for some small detailing on palm size projects even. I located some old chisels that would fit the bill just fine. Older ch...

gluing face grain to edge graim

07-12-2015 07:29 PM by Bob Casey | 3 comments »

does anyone see a problem with gluing up pieces of edge grain to pieces of face grain. I am thinking of gluing some maple, Cherry, and/or walnut pieces into 1” cutting boards, but want to put in some exotics, like yellow heart paduck etc. but can only find max 3/4 thick so I was thinking of cutting the strips 1” wide and gluing the face to the edge, does anyone see a problem?

Currently in the process of switching over to an HVLP system. I am looking for a good finish to spray. I’d like to stick with an oil base finish if possible but I would be open to a waterbase finish. I’ve heard Enduro Var by Generals is good except for it leaves a plastic like look. Any ideas anyone? Please and thank you!!

New Woodworking Business

08-31-2015 04:29 PM by PSUmike | 3 comments »

So I’ve been dabbling in this hobby for 4-5 years now, and decided to make a side business out of it. The first step is a name. So how about “Measure Twice, Cut Thrice Woodworking”, or “Cut Thrice Woodworks”. Thoughts?
