Barrister Book Case Tutorial #6: Rockler's Barrister Slides

08-30-2009 09:08 PM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I was going to use Rockler’s Barrister slides because as I mentioned before I’m not very happy with the current set up for how the doors work using the plansnow solution of groves and pins. This solution works alright once you get use to it and it is pretty simple and cost effective, but I was really hopeful that I could get the Rockler hardware to work because it looked like it would have made for a smoother operation. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18058&#...

Bowed keyboard- Streichklavier #7: at the fall music festival in Ironton MO

10-19-2009 07:38 PM by JonJ | 3 comments »

I didn’t get completely done, but took it to the festival anyway. Friday night I had it working pretty good about midnight, but as I was getting ready to put it away for the night- I heard a popping noise every time the belt made a full circle. I knew what that meant… time for a new belt. I cut the old one off and spliced a new one on. I use gorilla glue and clamp the splice between waxed paper. this time I used maple blocks and two clamps so I could really crank down on it. Sat m...

Karate belt display #1: The Concept

02-05-2010 04:17 PM by WoodshopJoe | 3 comments »

I have afforded the opportunity to create a great piece for the local karate school. Both of my kids are in the program and my daughter is close to obtaining her black belt in karate. It has been a journey that has taken her nearly 3 years to complete and an experience that she will be able to draw upon for the rest of her life. As is always does, the karate school closes down over the Christmas break. When classes resumed after the first of the year, we came back to a redecorated interio...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #1: My 21st Century Revisited

07-17-2010 08:14 PM by fineamerican | 3 comments »

My first attempt at recording my thoughts, hopes and wishes on a work bench have changed and today Ive begun to bring forth my ideas into my shop. One of the things about woodworking as you may have found out for yourself, is sometimes in order to accomplish one goal, along the way your faced with sub tasks if you will that must be completed before the main goal can be reached. For me that was a saw bench. You may wonder why I need a saw bench to build my work bench and the answer is this. My...

Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

01-20-2011 05:20 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #296: Better Late Than Never

03-27-2011 01:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Hi guys and girls! Is it too late to post today?? I hope not. It has been an incredibly eventful couple of days and this was the first chance I actually got to write. The show was crazy/busy today which is a great thing. I was there late last night doing the judging of the projects and I needed to get up early today for a 6:30 breakfast with the other judges. They kept me on quite a schedule. I have lots of stories and pictures for you all, but it is still difficult for me to write t...

Outdoor Morris Chair #13: Please be gentle - it's my first time (with the router)

05-05-2011 02:19 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

Did my first router cuts ever. Really want to show the kid that I can do something when he’s not here – even if it’s only marginally true. Cut the notches for the front slat boards and routed all by myself. I’m a big boy now. Here’s a couple of pictures: !

Shop Cleanup, Catch-Up, and Redo #5: Dust Collection for Miter Saw Part I

10-05-2011 04:23 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

After reviewing many a magazine and multiple solutions for dust collection with this beasty, I decided to roll my own based off of BlankMan's / Degoose's designs. the designs both include plenum chambers to spread the suction across a small horizontal opening. Both solutions have the mainline for the DC above the bench, mine of course is below. With this all in mind and since I had pulled the benches off the shop wall, what I decided to do was to build a separate plenum box and integrate it i...

2012 Foot Powered Grinding Wheel #1: Concept, Design

02-09-2012 07:22 PM by Will Mego | 3 comments »

So one of the other projects I wish to accomplish this year (towards spring/summer) is a foot powered grinding wheel. gives you a vague idea of what I’m going after. The image, btw is from http://autonopedia.org/crafts_and_technology/Wood/Wood_Harvesting_with_Hand_Tools.html which might be of some interest to others. So the main choice facing me is natural stone, either harvested around me or from a stone yard, or to make a wheel using concrete/abrasive sands, several recipes ...

Woodworking as Therapy #17: Ruminating ideas for projects

03-04-2012 03:58 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

So I’m quickly coming to the close of my Adirondack chair blog class (just the final assembly to go), my sun room addition is now complete (just got the French doors put in today) and I’ve managed to put up some shelves Sis wanted in the laundry room (nothing major – haven’t decided if I’m going to put doors on them but they are framed so I can add doors if I want to), so now my mind is turning towards some new smaller projects that I can do. I’ve purcha...
