Wooden Disc #1: My First Comission: Wooden Disc Golf Disc

03-05-2012 08:36 PM by bobasaurus | 4 comments »

I sometimes make wooden disc golf discs for fun, since I play myself, and post pictures of them on disc golf forums. I get lots of positive responses, and tons of requests to make them. I recently received a message from a guy who was very flexible both for price and time involved, and decided to try doing a commission for the first time. I gave him the choice of wide wood pieces I had in the shop (so I could avoid doing a glue-up), and he chose padauk. He also bought and shipped to me a ...

Shop and craigslist #2: What does a potential deal look like?

02-02-2013 07:43 PM by getlostinwood | 4 comments »

In this entry I thought I would begin to post a couple of adds that I would consider potential shop builders. I’ll try and cover a few different pieces of equipment. I’m just going to do a few searches for today and pull out what I would consider going to look at. I am not in any way saying these are the best deal out there or that the equipment is great, only that for someone starting out with a small budget could begin to assemble a shop in pretty short order and not have to sta...

General thoughts #5: My veneering setup

01-16-2014 01:32 PM by Ottacat | 4 comments »

In my last blog entry I describe how as a hobby woodworker I use commercial veneers instead of resawing my own. In this post I wanted to describe my setup. Veneering is remarkably easy as you only need a few things your veneer a vacuum pump a vacuum bag a bottom platen and mesh I bought my pump, bag and mesh from VenneringSupplies (http://www.veneersupplies.com/). They are also my main source of veneers. Here is my setup in operation: For a pump there are supplier...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1235: "In-Between" Days

01-31-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a rather odd day for me. I found myself finishing up one project and kind of picking around with the next. I was a bit tired and achy (which is NOT typical for me!) and I was wondering if I was coming down with something. I have been running pretty hard lately. My mind has been a bit overloaded with various ideas for different projects in different directions. I have found myself not sleeping very well because I was spending the night designing – my thoughts running wi...

Plane Restoration #1: Assessment and Cleanup

03-24-2014 07:55 PM by bit101 | 4 comments »

Well, I’ve been wanting to try and get into more hand tools. A plane is a good start. After watching Rob Cosman’s Plane Revival and some of Frank Klausz’s stuff, I picked up an old Stanley #4 on eBay for $20. It arrived today. Overall, I think it’s in pretty good shape. Some rust on the sides and bottom, but no serious pitting. So, I took it all apart. The frog, inner body and lever cap are almost pristine. Just needed a little wiping down. Everything...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1418: Finishing Up

10-08-2014 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...

Some Info Straight From Bill Pentz

08-28-2007 03:06 PM by ToddE | 3 comments »

I wanted to share some comments Bill Pentz had for me when I asked him about my new 2 HP cyclone purchase. So…here goes…by the way, Bill spends hours a day answering emails, like 7 hours a day. I hope that you would take the time and read the information he has on his web site (http://www.billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/Index.cfm) and the comments below before you would write to him. I pretty much asked him the plain facts, so this should take care of any discussion questions...
