Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #2: Travelling to Reno

01-07-2016 06:30 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

I am really excited about my my trip to conduct interviews with prominent woodworkers! I wanted to leave Minneapolis early on Monday, but I didn’t get on the road until after 4PM. I have been behind the wheel ever since, but I did take a few pictures along the way. I had always heard of the Corn Palace in Mitchell SD so when I realized that I happened to be right there I had to stop and take a few pictures. They take their corn very seriously in South Dakota!! I als...

Work Bench #2: The Verticals

08-23-2009 02:01 PM by Woodfix | 3 comments »

Since my last entry I have spent one and a bit days working on the bench.This has involved sizing the verticals, cutting the tenons on the ends of the verticals and cutting the mortice for the stub tenon in the stretchers. SizingSizing the verticals was done on the jointer, table saw and thicknesser. The jointer was used to get two side straight and at right ankles to each other. The dimension for the width of the vertical (that is from the side, not the end) required that it be about si...

Rough Sawn Walnut #4: Flatten Boards without a Jointer

10-29-2009 04:06 AM by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

The idea came from FWW I got a chance to play around with getting the angles setup for the adjustment wedges tonight. I made a fixture to cut the angle in some scrap. I didn’t pay real close attention to detail on the fixture. I figure it’s a one of a kind item and probably will hit the compost pile in the spring. I don’t particularly like the bungee cord idea so I’m going to use a 1/4-20 bolt to keep the adjuster in place. Here’s the concept:I’ll...

Shop Stuff. #2: Got TS, Now for the rest

01-31-2010 10:39 PM by rsmith71 | 3 comments »

I went ahead and helped a friend as well as myself out this weekend. He had a Delta Contractor Saw and needed to sell it. I’ve been making do with a Craftsman portble. I bought because up until 4 months ago the house we lived in didn’t have garage, just a carport. All my larger tools had to be portable enough to store in our laundry room. Made it hard to get motivated on more intricate projects like my game boards because every hour or two spent working cost an hour of set up and ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1699: New Things!

02-19-2016 02:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today is going to be one of those posts where everything comes together at once. I guess that is typical when I do projects such as what I just completed. It seemed like I was here, there and everywhere and then suddenly – "BAM" (that's for you, Mary! ;) )  everything falls together nicely! Well- sort of, anyway! (If it were only that easy!) We managed to get everything completed and up on the site yesterday. I was proud because I even had my pattern packet ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1700: Along Came a (Little, Fat) Spider!

02-22-2016 02:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As usual, the weekend went by much too quickly. We had a 'visiting day' on Friday, and I had earmarked Saturday for cutting orders. Sunday was to be my day to 'relax', but that didn't really happen. (It never really does!)  I am not complaining though, as I did accomplish a lot and I was able to spend the latter part of the evening finishing up my Panel 1 on my latest embroidery project. So much is going on lately in my life it seems. The growth of our business i...

Glossary of Dave-isms

02-28-2016 06:06 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This is a sort of work in progress for now. I wanted to create a place where I could point folks from my posts that might explain one or two of my turns of phrase. I’ll add to this as I notice some of the Dave-isms I use. Drawer Wood, This is typically wood that I have salvaged from dressers that I see out for the trash. For the most part they are likely poplar, but occasionally I’ve found dresser tops and drawer fronts that were white oak and once black walnut. LBP, Thi...
