Roy's Mystery Mallet #4: How Small Can You Go?

03-16-2012 02:27 AM by pastorglen | 3 comments »

So I had some extra time on my hands… and I wondered, just how small can you go with this rising dovetail mystery mallet? So I pulled out a piece of 3/4” oak that was sitting around, cut it in half, and started laying out the cuts for a very thin “mallet.” I used a blue pen, which is part of the dark line you see along the joints. (They actually are very tight—tighter than I expected.) I didn’t take a lot of time to in laying it out, and my entire tim...

I think there is a little artist in all woodworkers. I seen this ad for Samsung Galaxy note with artist AJ Fosik. I like what he says about his work. I think it applies to many of us.

SCMS stand w/ folding wings #2: Partitions

12-29-2013 02:53 AM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

We do a lot of corrugated partitions at work, and occasionally do similar designs out of plywood cut on the CNC for use in crates. So I laid these out in 1/4” Masonite and banged them out about a month ago. Here are the individual pieces… Ad here they are set up…

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #10: Clamp pull-out drawer

01-29-2014 09:33 PM by Garry | 3 comments »

I decided to make a pull-out drawer for the ~7” gap between cabinets. I toyed with different uses and came up with clamp storage. This freed up two drawers for other uses. I need to find a decent way to make replaceable labels for the drawers.

The flipping bandsaw vs Vaughnilla

09-10-2014 06:04 PM by Vaughnilla | 3 comments »

So my partner and I Eric decided that it would be best if the both of us got into lifting shape so we wanted to make wooden weights he having to show off his master craftsmen ability was able to make the cuts. But the bandsaw had it out for me my partner said ” you make the other cut ” I said ” I’m not good sat the band saw it hates me” he left so I started cutting I wanted to cut the ends of the oak piece first so I could round it off and the first corner worked...

Great Grandpa's tools #1: best box of girl scout cookies ever!

06-26-2013 01:02 AM by fumehappy | 3 comments »

I’m talking to my mom the other day and she tells me, ” oh I was down in grandmas cellar and I saw an old girl scout cookie box. It had some of those skinny plane things you like”. Naturally I started to salivate.As luck would have it, circumstances prevented me from obtaining them for a whole week. Since my mom was really vague on the description the suspense was killing me. Finally I obtained the box and as I opened it a beam of light shown out and a choir of angels sang...

Fresh Start #4: Nothing like life getting in the way of a good time.

12-29-2013 03:12 AM by Ed_Wilcox | 3 comments »

Wow, it has been a while… I’m sure other weekend woodworkers have experienced the reality of life interrupting well intended plans. Since beginning this project, so much other stuff has happened. Not only am I now part of a new company transitioning into an Armor company – where out of only 9 people, I am 1 of 2 who actually have experience on tanks – but I also volunteered to be a Cub Scout Wolf Den leader… so much of my time has been spent with my son…...
