I’m looking to invest into a new planer…I looked at the Grizzly G0453-Z model with spiral blades. I like it! The price is right and from what I’ve read…the reviews are good! Any thoughts or suggestions…this planer will be used for teak…Working with a budget here!

New Tools

01-18-2014 09:03 PM by Jerome | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a set of built in cabinets for two areas designated for them. I will do a big specifically on the project soon. Along the way I discovered that I did not have all the “necessary” tools for the job. The first realization occurred when I began cutting the base molding. My miter saw was just 7” and I needed a few more inches to cut the base molding. I could have used my table saw to cut it, but rather than going through the table of that, I looked on C...

Door glue ups

I have struggled with door glue ups but I finally have a method that works very well for me and it is easy. Most importantly your stock must be dead flat and square. The rails must be coped square to the rails so I always make a few extras as it seems once in a while one slips in the coping s...

The Non-Electric Chair #4: In Which We Get Down To Work

08-19-2008 09:00 PM by lethentymill | 2 comments »

You may be wondering when I am going to stop daydreaming and get on with making a chair. The short movie that I produced to accompany this entry provides a ‘short-cut’ to the main action! It’s just that I know that some people are going to ask “What’s the point in making furniture by hand?” and I think that it’s difficult to explain, I certainly can’t put it in a sentence. I have read entire books by people who have tried to answer this question ( e.g. David Pye – “Th...

Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

04-01-2010 04:44 AM by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...

Just a quick update....

05-24-2010 11:57 PM by Shawn Sealer | 2 comments »

I took some new pictures of my shop. (More on my site) They are all in the shop section on my blog. The old ones were taken with my cell phone, so the quality was not the best. Still working out a few things with my blog (trying to get some things with Google search worked out). I’m having trouble getting this site to show up in Google search. Hope to get this stuff worked out soon. If anyone can help it would be grately appreaciated. Also, I have been editing away, I have taped a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #356: Today Is Another Day!

05-31-2011 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well it was good to get that out of my system. Sometimes it is best to take the plunge and just do what has to be done. I am not going to say there weren’t some rough spots. There was a point in the mid-afternoon where there was lots of stuff all over and I was beginning to feel quite overwhelmed. But I forged on and sorted and actually threw out the stuff that was no good and no longer useful and it was just about dinner time when things were back in place (only a bit neater!) and ...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #8: Making the Stepped Pattern

06-14-2011 04:30 AM by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

Once the mortises were complete, it was time to finally move on to the stepped pattern. I first roughed out the pattern at the band saw so as to remove the majority of the waste. After the problems I ran into while building a pair of cradles I now know I need to get to within 1/16” of the line I’ll eventually template route to. I’m currently borrowing my neighbors bench-top bandsaw which has a slightly dull blade and doesn’t always cut perfectly straight so I...
