My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #196: Did Anyone See Wednesday???

12-16-2010 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am looking for Wednesday. Does anyone know where it went? I think I blinked and it was gone! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe that the day went so quickly. (Drink your coffee fast, Cozmo! I think it is going to be a short one!) I got out of the house by 9am and I didn’t get home until probably 5pm. Meetings and errands all day. Not even time to see Bernie and Ellen! I had to food shop too so I had to put all the food away when I got home. I will be making a nice lasag...

A Modern Prairie Sconce #3: Building a Modern Prairie Sconce - Part 2

08-21-2011 10:26 PM by Randy Price | 3 comments »

The parts are cut out and I am applying the finish – before assembly. I am finishing before gluing up because it would be difficult to apply the finish after assembly, especially between the slats. Watch the video to see the finish I’m using and what is in store for part 3.

The tiny shop chronicles: #4: Shrink the workbench

09-06-2011 06:46 PM by SnowFrog | 3 comments »

Shrink the workbench (if you can call it that, it more a table top right now) OK no lynching, it is not an actual proper workbench! ;-) Sounds counterintuitive, but it is actually too big for a tiny shop. It is there only because I reused what I had without any changes. I recycle this from the time I made concrete countertops for the kitchen. This one and a few more held the molds where the concrete was curing before being moved and installed into the kitchen. Fundamentally a sheet of ...

New Tools Are Cool #4: DW618B3 Update

01-29-2012 08:48 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I decided to go ahead and re-drill my table saw router extension table to fit the DW618 screw holes. It went a lot smoother than I expected. After looking at several router tables I feel in love with the Incra. So now I have to save all my extra pennies and convince my wife how much I need it once the pennies are save. Enough about that for now this is about mounting the fixed base to the table I took the extra sub-base and centered it in the existing hole on the extension and marked ...

Honing a fresh edge quickly

06-03-2013 11:43 PM by lwllms | 3 comments »

Cutting edges are supposed to be created by the meeting of two surfaces. Most the stuff on honing I see only addresses refreshing one of those surfaces but both surfaces suffer dulling wear in use. Repeatable, dependable creating of a sharp edge requires addressing both surfaces. Flat stones and a matching flat face on the tool to be honed facilitate quick honing. This video was created in response to Chris Schwarz’s blog post, Shut up and sharpen. He wanted links to videos posted. ...

Favorite Old Tool(s) #3: More Stuff

05-14-2007 03:01 AM by Paul | 3 comments »

1. A pair of neat bar clamps I found some time ago. I had not seen clamps like this before and haven’t since. Neat and unique cam action clamping. They work great! 2. Two slicks marked with my grandfather’s intitials – HG – my father married later in life and I never met my father’s father. It’s special to me to be the caretakers of these and other tools marked with his initials. 3. I used to have a collection of these rubber “unbreakabl...

The Wine Rack (I can't tell if my pics will appear or not!!)

09-19-2009 03:04 AM by NBeener | 3 comments »

Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store. First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room. This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast). I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood. Not...

Chimney Cabinet #2: Drawers Fitted (First Inset Drawers)

01-04-2010 06:34 AM by thiel | 3 comments »

I got these drawers fitted before I closed up for the winter: This is the first time I’ve done inset drawers, and it was a bit easier than the hell I’d imagined it to be. The weather was already pretty cold and dry when I fit these though, so I assume they’ll swell in the spring. I haven’t glued them up just in case. I did learn something though. Having cut the dovetails on all the very close but not yet fitted parts, I was able to shave the bottoms of th...
