My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #425: Taking Time to be Perceptive

08-08-2011 01:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel as if things are stuck in fast forward lately. The past couple of weeks have passed in what seems to be a day or so. Although I am not in a panic mode, I am beginning to feel anxious about things and I am longing to have that feeling of peace and accomplishment that goes with being caught up. I think it is time to make a list again and prioritize what needs to be done by when. Somehow that always proves to put me back on the path and calm things down for me. I am not sure how ...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #5: Lids and Miter Keys

11-21-2011 02:00 PM by JoeyG | 4 comments »

I use my table saw sled to square up the lid and cut it to size Then it’s on to the jointer where I size the width of the lids. I like to make mine about 1/16 smaller at this point. Final sanding should bring it down the rest of the way. I try to end up with about 1/16 gap all the way around.I have ripped scrap pine that just sit in the box and holds the lid in place. This will be need when I go to drill for lid pins. It also lets me see where the lid will sit. This time I felt...

Apiary #3: Happy Bees

06-13-2014 07:51 PM by CueballRosendaul | 4 comments »

The gentleman I was buying the bees from lives about an hour and a half away from here, and they were having severe thunderstorms the evening I was picking them up, so I thought I’d have to wait, but the storms were over quickly and I was able to pick them up. They were very agitated however and stung him several times while transferring the frames into my box. All the way home, they were buzzing with great irritation about the trip. One of the tips I read said you can tell how theyR...

Planning and Building a Jig #1: Introduction

12-15-2007 07:30 PM by Peter Oxley | 4 comments »

I grew up on a ranch, a place where you have to be able to do just about everything yourself. Plumber, mechanic, veterinarian, heavy equipment operator, you name it. Having been raised that way, I can’t stand to pay anyone for anything I think I can do myself – my wife would say that is why nothing gets done around here! I make a lot of my own jigs and fixtures. Some of them only get used once, some of them are used so much they almost never get put away. Either way, they are tools ...

Azek - Wonder Material for Outdoor Projects

02-08-2009 02:45 AM by UVA | 4 comments »

I have learned a lot from trim carpenters about methods of work and materials. One example is Azek cellular PVC for outdoor projects. Using wood outside, whether painted or stained, is always problematic. I’ve seen cypress and redwood rot where water collects. Azek is a smooth surfaced cellular PVC that cuts and routs just like wood using carbide tools. The special Azek glue works for cope and stick joints, butt joints and laminating pieces together to get thicker materials. It ...

Bought the wrong stuff, Lacquer insted of Poly. Any one use Lacquer?

05-08-2009 06:19 AM by Pete_Jud | 4 comments »

I went to the hardware store in town yesterday and bought a can of Deft brand Lacquer by mistake instead of poly. I thought I would try deft brand poly instead of the only other satin poly that they had (ACE). I did read the back of the can, and picked up some lacquer thinner to clean the brush. When I bought the thinner I should have thought something was not right. I got it to the shop and got it mixed and started applying. The first thing I noticed was that the VOC’s where much s...
