New Blogging Effort

03-22-2010 06:10 PM by Troy | 3 comments »

We have a new home on the internet thanks to my wife. I will be primarily blogging there, but I plan to stay active on LJ, primarily cause it’s so addictive. I will try and balance out when and how to blog to both or whatever, I am not sure the best approach at this time. Let me know what works for you please, if you are in the same situation, as well as any feedback or suggestions for the site. Thank you Blog Page Shop Tour

Skills Building #2: Clock Project - Mortise & Tenons galore

04-19-2010 08:59 PM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

They say that there’s nothing like practise to make you better at a skill. My cousin’s wedding is in June, and I decided in my new wood working glory to make a wedding present for them. After consulting my wife, we decided that building a clock would be a nice gift. So I spent some time searching the project archive here on LJ’s, and around the web. Saving pictures to the hard drive so that I could go back and forth to choose without having to bookmark the various pages t...

Timing of milling a black cherry tree.

03-28-2016 12:45 AM by JebStuart | 3 comments »

I am in central Virginia and dropped a couple black cherry trees recently and was wondering how long I have before I should mill them into boards and set them up for drying. Any suggestions or insights would be appreciated.

Post and Panel Construction System #3: Much More Than Castles

07-24-2010 10:07 PM by Pete Tevonian | 3 comments »

When I started this set, I intended it to be a “castle kit”. I considered crenelated tops to the panels to make them look like a “real” castle, I considered building a draw-bridge panel (which my son would still no-doubt love), thought about staining the wood grey to mimic stone, and considered cutting arched windows in some of the panels to look like classic castle windows. In then end, though, I decided to wait on all of that until I saw how he played with it. Tha...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #4: Setting aside for now

09-02-2010 01:54 AM by yellowtruck75 | 3 comments »

I have decided that I am going to put this project aside for a bit and concentrate on a different chair. After ruining my second set of back legs I need a bit of a break. The problem with Paduak is that it splinters like crazy. Love the grain lines but if you get one going in the wrong direction and hit that with a router – boom good bye piece. I am also going to put it aside until my new shop (could be a while) is completed because the red dust in my small shop is unbearable. My...

Just a simple little box... #4: Getting close to a finish line, now

04-23-2016 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

But, had quite a bit of work to do first.. Lid came out of the clamps..voids on the ends filled. Gaps filled and sanded. Had one filler piece pop out, back into the clamps it went. Got set up for the bottom rebate, used a Wards 78 to mill it. Had to milled a few grooves to add the cutter storage dividers. Needed two narrow dados. Thought I’d try the 45 to cut them…. Couldn’t get the skates close enough. Could only get one of the spurs to move. Square and...

Shop Update #26: Wiring is ready to inspect and the great saw upacking begins...

08-15-2011 05:09 AM by TheKingInYellow | 3 comments »

The last few bits of wiring have been completed, I just need the inspection and then I can fire up the saw. Speaking of which: There are pics. Therefore it happened. The saw is current on it’s mobile base thanks to the help of three buddies last night. I only had a half hour or so to work on it today otherwise, so one of the extension tables is installed but that’s it. I recently picked up a Oneway Multi-Gauge and I used it to help align the extension. Very, very ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #506: It is Just One of Those Days . . .

10-29-2011 02:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Long story short – I wrote a blog. I had to answer an email. I closed my browser in the process of obtaining some information. I came back and the blog is gone. :( It is after 9am already and I have to get on to other things. We’ll just have to talk again tomorrow. I hope you all understand and have a great Saturday! (I hope the rest of my day goes better!)
