Work in Progress #1: Patio Side Table in Cedar

10-07-2010 02:10 PM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

I started this project a while ago, but because of work haven’t had much time to work on it. By the time I’m done, it should be just in time to put it up for the winter! Oh well. This is my first project entirely done with hand tools. This is the top, 20” square and 1 3/8” thick. The legs are 4×4’s but planed down to a little less than 3.5” I’m not sure if these M&T joints have an official name, but they’re more li...

The Traveling Lumberjock #6: Georgia again - Sycamore Slabs!

06-15-2011 07:50 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 3 comments »

I’m skipping some trips here, but I was in northwestern Georgia two weeks ago. I went out to visit my friends at the Cuzzort sawmill in Trenton, GA and came back with a nice pile of sycamore. It worked out to be about 50 bf. The piece was 3.5” thick, 14.5” wide and 10 feet long. That of course would be quite difficult to get on a plane, so after some quick calculations I had them resaw it to 2” and 1.5” and then we sawed it into three sections (44”, 44&...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #1: Ready to build!

01-08-2012 08:36 AM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

My Dad and I made a trip to the Black Forest Company today and picked up the supplies for the helicopter project. The body will be out of cherry, the main rotors will be wenge and other details will be other exotic woods such as padauk and yellowheart. This evening I laminated the sheets of cherry into a 7” by 7” by 27” (length) blank. Tomorrow the new bandsaw is going to get quite the work out cutting this baby out. Hopefully all goes well.

Workshop Makeover #3: Workbench Design 1.2

03-20-2012 02:08 AM by pound | 3 comments »

I turned the whole thing 90 degrees and added a base of 2×4’s to the bottom for support. (Thanks Andy). This would give me access to lots of drawers from it’s resting place. I am still lost on tactical approach to the design, but I feel I can at least handle building this design. Keep the comments coming even if it is “Don’t build that it sucks” Thanks,Smith

"Wood Workin' Character" --by RusticWoodArt

10-30-2007 02:13 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Wood Workin’ Character ....and so here we arrive at this morning of a new day, just as I also hope that none of us are in mourning this morning…. ”What is my new day all about, what is your new day all about and how does this new day morning, contribute to the spirit of wood, that begs to be heard in the creation of ‘wood art’, by the hands of the woodworking community?” Wow….and that one question, (or one of many questions within a question)...

In The Small Shop #1: Making Molding with a Molder Head

08-21-2008 06:26 AM by bkhop | 3 comments »

This tutorial is for setting up a molder head and creating molding on a Shopsmith Mark V, Model 520. Obviously, much of the information here can be “translated” to a different model Shopsmith or even to a stand-alone table saw. When done properly, with proper setup and appropriate safety precautions, using a molder head on a table saw is perfectly safe and produces beautiful molding. I couldn’t even begin to guess how much molding I’ve created for window frames, picture frames, case moldings,...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #34: From SU to reality

11-19-2008 03:23 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

I still have some work to do on the board – but thought I’d share what it looks like in relation to the SU project. Here’s the SU model And here is the reality. I still need to round over the edges and put on a good finish. Right now I just used a little mineral spirits to clean it up a bit. I’m getting closer to actually being able to post a project in the projects section of the site! thanks for looking.
