Useing woodworking to help Kids

1133 days ago by woodcraftertom | 2 comments »

Tomorrow June 4, our scroll saw club will be participating again at the Milton Hershey Children Miracle Network Fair. This is something we do every year and draw great satisfaction from it. We donate items we made and all sales go to the Cancer Research fund for the Childrens center. We will have our saws set up and be cutting animals and puzzles that are handed out and given to children that come through the Fair. There is no grater feeling in the world then to give some of these kids a smal...

Baby's Cradle #1: Baby's Cradle: A project done completely with hand tools.

969 days ago by paratrooper34 | 2 comments »

Welcome Fellow Lumberjock, I am writing this blog as a testament to the joy and simplicity of working with handtools. Handtools obviously require manual labor. But I am always up for burning off extra calories. Plus, in a handtool shop, I have no noise issues. I can listen to my favorite podcast or the football games on TV (on Sundays anyway). I also have no dust problems and don’t need a dust collection system. I feel it is also safer. The table saw, router, and such can bite ...

21” Excalibur Scroll Saw—Thoughts on Initial Tune Up

876 days ago by HillbillyShooter | 2 comments »

Every bench tool (with the possible exception of my drill press) required me to fine tune the tool before it was ready to use. Instructions for such requisite procedure were either included (as with the radial arm saw and the table saw) or readily available from a secondary source (my band saw). However, I’m new to owning and using a fine scroll saw, and detailed information was neither in the instruction manual nor readily available. Therefore, I resorted to the Internet for research on h...

Slant-top writing desk #2: Long live the scrub plane. Oh, and I need a workbench. Like real bad...

412 days ago by adamclyde | 2 comments »

I’ve spent the last few days flattening and thicknessing and dimensioning all the lumber for this project. It seems so simple with Norm Abrams does it. Alas, not so when I do it. I managed through it mostly. I have a few pieces that are 8 inches wide, and I only have a 6” jointer. And, of course, those wider pieces happened to have a ton of twist to it. So, I busted out the brand new 100-year-old scrub plane that my dad gave me recently (which I had just sharpened). I was amaz...

New Router Table #5: Building the Top

306 days ago by jeffbranch | 2 comments »

Before I get to the top, I left off in my last post on this build with the tricky addition of the dust port to the back of the router table. This would have been a lot easier if I had completed this step prior to attaching the back to the case, but it just didn’t happen that way. To get started on the dust port, I taped it in place on a thin piece of pine… Using a flush trim bit in my router I create the template I need to cut the hole in the back… After pos...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #6: Back to Basics

241 days ago by PhilBello | 2 comments »

The last couple of weeks, I have learned how lazy I had become as a Woodworker, having had a workshop which had just about every tool a hobby Woodworker could wish for, and then going to nothing and having to start again, has made me realise how lucky I was, and also how blasé I had become. The last couple of weeks, I decided to ‘improve’ my table saw top, by putting in a second dado rail, fitting inserts for the saw blade, and making a cross-cut sled, simple you might think! ...

Working with recycled timber #19: Pine and Jarrah Boxes Preparing the stock

118 days ago by robscastle | 2 comments »

I was trying to tidy up again as our house is getting lots of clutter, mainly from me bringing home stray pieces of timber I find. I thought I had better look very closely at my stash of recycled timbers. I had heaps so I pulled out about 28 pieces of various lengths and dimensions I ran them through on the table saw to true them up and then commenced thicknessing them. I ended up with enough stock to make the boxes. I then decided to add panels in the sides from more r...
