One Board Furniture Build-Off #2: Well I Finished It!

05-03-2008 09:37 PM by Michael Hacker | 3 comments »

I finished my entry with only a few setbacks along the way! I entered my photos at 11:30pm April 30th and unfortunately i wasn’t able to shoot my photos as professionally as i wanted. I had planned on making a pub scene and having some friends over to break the table in with a few drinks and food. But my wife got called into work, my friends were distracted, and so i was left alone! More importantly i didn’t have anyone to help me move the table from the basement because i need...

Spring time is clean shop time

04-17-2009 09:29 PM by Rustic | 3 comments »

Hi All, Well I have put all projects on hold so I can clean my shop. That is why there hasn’t been any projects since the game boards. As I clean I am also organizing and possibly going to remove the carpet in my shop finally.I also figured if I am going to host a Lumber Jock picnic, I may want to clean my shop so I can show it off. In the process of cleaning so far I have found a few tools that I have been looking for. I am really going to organize the shop the way it should be. Whi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #107: Onword We Go!

09-18-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I made tremendous progress yesterday in getting things organized. I was quite determined to get some things done, because I needed to get my head above water on several small tasks that have been hanging in the background. I like being organized and in order to be creative, I need to feel that things are in order. When I look at the calendar and see how time seems to be passing so quickly, it is sometimes difficult to understand how each day is consumed. My days are all so full and it real...

First the bowl is on hold, mainly becuase i need to sharpen my chisels. The question… Is there a non-power sharpening tool that can sharpen my axes, chisels, and other such hand tools all in one tool? Also i made a simple ruler stop, a marking gauge, and a small grease pot. I’ll be posting them soon. Thanks

Made a mod to the sled

11-29-2010 07:38 PM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I was looking at the design of the handle on my crosscut sled and decided that it just didn’t look right. I also incorporated some finger guards. I didn’t want to scrap the handle all together so I cut it down a bit and attached it to the finger guards. Here is how it turned out; I attached the finger guard to the front fence with some screws. I did not glue the finger guard assembly to the fence, this allows me to remove the guard in the event that I need or want to a...
