Woodturning video...the 9" x 12" Segmented Vase

06-22-2010 08:57 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

Woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut. When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate ...

The Nehls End Workshop #6: Coming Together

05-31-2011 04:15 PM by Gregn | 2 comments »

The shop is finally coming together and looking like a woodworkers shop. I’ve been busy cleaning the rust from my tools and getting things ready to use. Unfortunately my camera died and am unable to take pics of my progress at this time. Don’t have much left to get out of storage the air compressor and table saw and my lumber stash. I don’t know how my lumber will look as it was just stacked without stickering it before stacking. Hopefully it will be okay as it was pretty dr...

Shop Cleanup, Catch-Up, and Redo #2: I like it when a plan comes together

09-25-2011 05:18 AM by sIKE | 2 comments »

I know it been two weeks but I have been a bit busy with work. I did spend last weekend tearing things down and pulling the bench off the wall. Aye, what a job and a mess! So I started the improvements in the left corner of the shop where the Revolving Tool Station lives.My Air Compressor line comes down from the loft in this corner so that was the first thing that I worked on. I am using a RapidAir based solution here. I then proceeded to clean up the Tool Station itself and finished ...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

Jake's chair #2: making the best of a messy situation

05-29-2012 05:33 AM by James Alberding | 2 comments »

So, today is Memorial day. Let me just say thanks to the lumberjocks out there who have served or are serving our country that may read this. I wanted to clean out my shed today so I can get a work space going. Here are a couple pictures of what I’m dealing with. I didn’t get to it today though because I had to now the lawn and dig a trench to run some piping for drainage. That took much longer than I expected. Besides I doubt the dump would have been open today with the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #773: Tying Up Loose Ends

07-29-2012 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday I spent pretty much of the day getting the pattern ready for the site update, as well as doing the update itself and writing the newsletter. It still takes me a bit longer than it probably should to do the website things, but it did get done and I believe that it what is important. There are several things that I need to consider when doing an update, and even though Keith does much of the work and organization there, it still can be challenging for me at times. I was also able...

5 Knives #9: Some times it's cold... Then it snows..

03-04-2013 08:40 PM by AJM | 2 comments »

So i unveiled my knife handle this morning.. The curly birch was glowing.. the purple heart lookes splendid.. i think i will leave the bird cherry to a picture. After all a picture is worth 1000 words.. (swear ones) I guess the apple wood peg split it.. I knew i should have fitted it earlier..-21 but sunny…. So like the weather this morning i take a negative and go for a positive.. I can do an article on rehandling/renewing a damaged knife. After a bad start to the day with the k...

Arts and Crafts Nightstand #2: Web Frames and Back Panel

05-20-2013 07:46 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

Here is the design for the nightstand….-----I set about notching stock for the web frames. I use a dado blade, however a bandsaw would work too. -----The web frames are joined with biscuits, and checked with a straightedge. -----Web frames and more web frames…------One or two of the joints needed a few passes with a block plane. -----I glued the lower front rail in place, connecting the two side panels. It’s amazing how much strength a through M&T joint has. ------...

CC's Book Case #3: Glue Day!

06-30-2013 11:48 PM by SquintyPolock | 2 comments »

It’s been a heck of a June. Two camping trips, a wedding, graduation parties, birthday parties, and needless to say – CC did not get her book case in time for graduation day. Oh well. She didn’t make a big deal. Today, I had some free time. I ripped down some boards and edge glued the top. A bit of sanding will be needed to clean up the faces. I cut and dadoed the plywood about 3 weeks ago and its been sitting in my basement shop during all these family events. A...
