Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #1: Delivery

07-13-2015 06:08 PM by ERQ | 3 comments »

I recently ordered Grizzly’s G0452P Jointer for the small shop I am attempting to set up in my one-car garage. I haven’t even fully assembled it yet, so we’re a long way off from a real review, but I thought it might be useful to someone to chronicle what it’s like to order, take delivery of, and assemble a Grizzly product. I am writing this for people, like me, who’ve never had to deal with the delivery of a (for me, anyway) major piece of machinery and the asso...

Resawing ziricote and honey locust on my bandsaw

08-17-2015 07:13 AM by rkoorman | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, I just love resawing. Don’t know why…There’s something magical about is. On this video I resaw some nice woods for my clients. The bandsaw I use is a Felder 510 with a DoAll Olympia 2 tpi blade on it. Thanks for watching !

Add a little decoration to your woodworking project.

02-15-2007 05:55 AM by Roger Strautman | 3 comments »

As you can tell by my screen name I’m a woodcarver but not just any kind of woodcarver, a chip carver. I like to make boxes, plates, wall hangings, ect. and I wanted to decorate them but I’m not a painter so chip carving was the next best way to decorate. Chip carving is one of the simplest types of carving because all you need is a knife, ruler, pencil with an eraser, and a bow compass. A little chip carving on you woodworking project will set yours project apart from others, it&...

Workshop Upgrage 2010 #3: Falling behind the curve

03-02-2010 07:27 PM by Derek Lyons | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to get out and work on the shop, partly due to a stretch of cold weather and partly due to life being crazy. This is a capital P Problem (right here in River City) as the date my friends are coming over to help put up the drywall and insulation is cast in stone. (They’re as busy as I am, and like me plan their weekends for some months ahead.) Anyhow, here’s how things stand compared to the plan in the first post in this blog s...

Pine Country Cabinet #8: Finish is Finished

03-22-2010 02:50 AM by David Murray | 3 comments »

After several weeks of working on this project I’ve finished up. This past week I applied 4 coats of Spar Urethane and this is the finished project. One of inside. And one last one of outside. Now I’ll cover it up and put it in the corner until my nephew’s wedding in July. Hopefully they will get many years of use out of it. Now I can build one for my wife next. Thanks for looking.

Workshop #1: New Ridgid R4511 table saw

04-18-2010 04:38 AM by Woodcanuck | 3 comments »

Thanks to some advice on the forums as well as some great reviews and piles of other useful stuff about a variety of table saws, I decided on the Ridgid R4511. Of course, it helped that there was a sale this weekend…perfect timing. Given I’m not unnaturally gorilla-like, I opted to have HD deliver the 450lb package. The saw arrived today…what a marvel of packaging this thing is…whoever figured out how to package this saw up should make puzzles too…the bo...

Ridgid TS3650 #3: Part Trek

07-09-2010 08:21 PM by Carreiro | 3 comments »

These are the voyages of a man and his 7mo. old son. Together their mission was to track down missing parts for a Ridgid table saw. Their journey took them to the far reaches of the Internet and North America where they discovered for themselves new and exciting information. Enough already with the extended metaphor. Let me share with you the little information I have discovered on Ridgid tools while trying to source my rails for the TS3650 (Part No. TH1025) for free; no luck. For some tim...

Lathes and Turning #2: Honey Dipper

06-03-2011 10:09 AM by swamps42 | 3 comments »

I finally made a honey dipper. It’s got a bit of blow out around the honey groves. I think that not only did the lack of an appropriate parting tool hurt this spot, but the generally poor quality wood was against me too. It’s also much too big for a proper honey dipper in my opinion. But whatever, I made a honey dipper. I finished it with a canned butcher block finish oil. I think I’ll coat it with a beeswax/mineral oil finish later too. Unfortunately, I’m comin...

Mission Chair Build

09-12-2011 08:13 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

I am now midway through a project to build a mission dining set. It will include 6 side chairs and two end chairs. I started with the chair construction using quartersawn white Oregon oak that I kiln dried myself. The chair design is a modern version of the arts and crafts style that is also very comfortable. The style was inspired by Kevin Rodel, Gustav Stickley, and Elbert Hubbard. I had fun designing them on Google Sketchup. It is surprising how many hours it ta...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #536: Cutting today

11-28-2011 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was a good day and I was able to finish up all the drawing that I needed to do for the next project that I need to send out to the magazine later on this week. That means that I get to spend the day at the scroll saw cutting. As always, that is one of my favorite parts of what I do. It will be nice to see everything come to life. My partner Keith is still fighting his cold. Unfortunately it has turned into a cough and sounds like it is going into his lungs. Even though he is ...
