Wooden box projects and adventures #4: Really getting it closer to completed now!

1030 days ago by Susan | 2 comments »

Hello all!! I know it’s been a little while since I’ve blogged, but I have been busy….and I’ve done a bit more work on the small coffin. It’s looking better, but still not quite done yet. I am satisfied (not happy…but it’s all a learning process…)...with the look of the piece. I definitely know what I will do differently in the future!! Here are some updated pics, starting with the top being partially completed, then the first part of the p...

Hi, Here is part four. It is a bit longer than the other sections despite the fact that I have cut it down quite a bit. I hope it will prove a useful tutorial in setting hinges. Enjoy, Paul Sellers

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #45: Decisions - Decisions

577 days ago by jerrells | 2 comments »

I have written, several times, about what to do next with my scrollsaw work. I have considered lots of things, toys, 3-D objects, jewelry and others. Well, for the most part, I have made a decision. The work I like best is detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. So I have decided this will be the main focus of what I do. Why would one try yo do things that is just not part of what they wish to do. I have the choice. I am not really in this for money. Yes, if I make enough to buy s...

The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy #7: 20 minute slot mortiser

521 days ago by 404 - Not Found | 2 comments »

Fairly unremarkable things on this job today. Just about done with the planing. It’s running behind schedule, Easter holidays mean the kids are at home and I’ve got to do the running about. Standing at the planer today I was thinking about how I could speed this job up a bit. I used loose tenons to make four doors for my ‘chicken proof’ project a couple of weeks ago, they were really quick, close fitting and accurate. It took hardly any time at all to sand down the ...

Homecraft table saw

14 days ago by drnic | 2 comments »

I just purchased a Homecraft 8” table saw (circa 1955 Model 34-500 I believe) for $50…runs great, has a newer 1 HP motor, but has a wobbly arbor. If the local tools repair shop cannot fix it with replacement bearings, is there a source for a new arbor?

"Slabbin' at Wood" #2: "McCulloch Super 33" --by RusticWoodArt

2533 days ago by frank | 2 comments »

McCulloch Super 33 In writing this story about “Slabbin’ at Wood’, I have thought to include stories on: 1. Safety a) ....and you will hear me talking off safety till you probably get sick of the ‘safety’ word. However with and when working with chainsaws, I am a believer that safety first on the job, will likewise take you home safely at last! b) ....I was also taught that the average audience when being talked to will need to hear the point you are m...

MIDI Workstation #3: MIDI Workstation Part II

2482 days ago by Tim Dorcas | 2 comments »

This is where things start getting exciting! MIDI Workstation After a couple of weekends of work, here is where I’m at. I use the Veritas 32 System to build the lower cabinets based on these designs. Design Top I built the top with this plan. MIDI Workstation Front Very detailed plans, eh?!? The one thing I wish I did a better job on is scale. The space I have designed this desk for is roughly 3′ by 6′. The overall size of the project is 2′ by 5.5′. In retrosp...

Two Car Garage Take Over #1: Control the Environment

2409 days ago by HybridIndie | 2 comments »

Well I must say that I am lucky to have a woman in my life willing to give up the garage space to allow me to really set up a shop. Living in the Northern Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania has it perks, and like all places, it’s down sides. This is the first in a series of how I convert my garage spaces into a functional shop for me to produce my work without causing problems if and when we would decide to move. My area like a lot of others has it’s dynamic swings with temperatur...

A lot of the work I do is for “others” being contractors or other cabinet shops, then they come get it and most often put the finish on. One particular client gives me about 50% of all the work I do and I am quite sure that he would give me 100% of the work I do but I think its bad Karma to have all your work come from one hand. This kitchen is perhaps the biggest to date. Hindsight is 20/20 and right now I am wishing that I had made all the kickplates and put them all on cas...
