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...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #14: Drilling, Tapping & Assembly

11-24-2011 09:05 PM by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

Assembly was pretty straight forward, just time consuming as I had to drill out the remaining threaded inserts into the posts and make sure all the parts lined up just right. OK, perhaps I’m glossing over the details just a tad. The front and back of the crib are 1” thick, but the threaded inserts I bought from Rockler were 1 1/4” long. Oops! They also required a very rare drill bit size I had to order online from some no-name supplier from Brooklyn. Once I had the bit in ha...

Shop Projects #1: Cyclonic Dust Collector

02-13-2012 01:50 AM by DevilDogNurse | 2 comments »

Well….. Having moved to the basement to take another shot at this wood working hobby (it’s currently 25 degrees outside!!!) I now need a way to clean up without destroying a shop-vac filter every day…. So I acquired a 58 gallon (Yes, I said 58 GALLON!!!) plastic barrel. I paid $25 and found it on Craigs List. God Bless the internet! If anyone is in the Chicagoland area and needs barrel’s let me know, I’ll pass on the guys info! So the Barrel is really nice. It...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #787: New Designs

08-12-2012 11:23 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I started off early today and now after a couple of hours of ‘doing things’ I don’t seem that far ahead of the day. But that is OK, because I was in the process of planning out my next design and I got distracted. My head is whirling right now. I wish I could do 10 things at once. I realize that it is coming up on my favorite season of the year (autumn) and I have so many ideas that I don’t know which one to do first. Yesterday I finished drawing up my next ma...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...
