My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #284: A Little Demonstration Piece for Class

03-14-2011 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post is going to be short. I know I have said that before, but then I get to rambling on. I can’t however today because I have an appointment in Yarmouth and need to get it in gear early. I am happy to say that I got to spend at least a little time at the saw yesterday. I worked on some of the pieces that I will be demonstrating with at the lectures. Since this isn’t a ‘hands-on’ type of class due to the size and time constraints, it is up to me ...

Wedding Clock #1: Milling Stock

04-23-2011 04:15 AM by kenn | 4 comments »

This should actually be Part 2 of the series, sorry. After that swich, I’ll have the rest of them correct. I have to start milling my stock. Here’s the stile and rails for the front and back of the clock. The sides are solid pieces that I’ll glue up later from 2 boards. For now, I’ve got work to do. I’m starting on a rail to get warmed up. Here I am checking to see where I am off. Now I’ll get it flat on one side. Next up is flattening one side ...

Tenon Jig for a cheapo Craftsman Table Saw #2: Squaring up the table

05-17-2011 12:13 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 4 comments »

The User Manual has a procedure for squaring up the blade to the miter slot. It also has a method for squaring up the fence to the blade. I thought I’d take a square to the table to see just how far it is since I’ve never adjusted anything. I also noticed lately that when I do stuff on the saw the wood starts out against the fence but slowly creeps away. If I put pressure I am getting burns so the blade is probably out of alignment with the fence. But which is it? Is the blade ...

Shop Update #18: Saw drama...

07-09-2011 11:59 PM by TheKingInYellow | 4 comments »

So, I took the Ridgid saw back to HD this week. I was going to do it last weekend, but attempting to load the saw back in my truck triggered a problematic bulging disk in my back and I spent three days on the couch this week. What triggered this whole event was detailed in this thread but the gist of it is that the blade slide out of alignment again, and now the belt is slipping or the motor is shot. I’m fed up with all the little annoyances and back it goes. So, I’m shopp...

Primary Colors #2: Guilt by association

08-08-2011 07:40 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

I’ve heard that all learning is association. Well it is certainly true for me. I spent most of my shop time this weekend bouncing between research and experimentation. The more I experimented, the more the research made sense. And the more I researched, the better the experiments. I played around with shellac as a sealer coat, and sanding back various colors in various layers. If something didn’t look good I tried another color or tried to sand it off, or just turned the p...

Don Seawater at Pacific Coast Lumber in SLO CA gave me a great deal on these. They are 4-6 foot Jacket boards off of a VERY curly California Redwood!! If you are ever in San Luis Obispo- stop by, he’s right off the hiway at the VERY end of Prado Ln! Thanks again Don!!

2 more auction items built

09-17-2013 12:11 AM by hobby1 | 4 comments »

Here is another version of a pie safe, built from a couple of pine shelf boards.I tried to make it look weathered, antiqued. And today I used up my last pine shelf board to build this, mirror frame.It took around 4 hours to build, including making a quick throw away tapering jig, for my table saw to make the long tapers. I will take these with two of my previous built serving trays, to an auction, and see how well they sell.

Very nice work to you all

04-08-2007 10:41 PM by Jim Earl | 4 comments »

I spent over an hour looking over alot of pieces that alot of you have posted. They are all of the highest quakity and supurb craftsmanship that IO have seen. At one time 4 years ago I had my own buisness and did not to shabby work, I felt. A lot of your pieces reminded me of alot of your work, so I thought I would get out my old Port folio and get out some of the pieces I made while I was in business. To little funds and to much pain took my buisness took it away, but I still try and do what...
