Christmas projects

11-23-2010 06:58 PM by Doug Scott | 2 comments »

By now all of us woodworkers should have or already have started on that special Christmas for that special person or people on our list. Every year I think I’m going to get started back in about September or October, but it has never happened . Try being employed in this type of business and still have time to work on your own projects is like the car mechanic that has the worst running car, but works on everyone else’s.I have managed to build 6 child rockin chairs and two are f...

Gluing up my first set of panels

08-29-2012 12:05 AM by RussellAP | 2 comments »

I’m making myself a new mailbox out of cedar. It will be in a sheltered spot unless the wind kicks up. I’m making the mailbox at about 54” off the ground with two decorative arms that go downward to a box for UPS and FEDeX. The box is going to be 20”x10” so I took some cedar fencing and ran it through the jointer and one set is in glue up now. The box on top is complete except the hinges and any other hardware I put on it. I’ll post some pictures later in a...

UK Customs charge collection rip off by Royal Mail

12-15-2013 09:10 AM by BigYin | 2 comments »

I imported goods and incurred £4.63 customs charge. Thats OK I was expecting it.However I was charged £8.00 collection fee by the Royal Mail. thats about $13 (Robbing Ba$%&*&’s). If you are importing to the UK have your seller mark the package “Goods to be Customs Cleared by the Importer” in large clear letters. No royal mail handling charge will be payable and you will receive invoice for customs that you have to pay directly. Delays things slightly but no...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #4: |Step 3| Learn how to Refurbish, Tune, & Sharpen Tools

04-15-2014 03:18 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

My wife loves to say, “hun, I think you love restoring hand tools almost as much as woodworking!” I think she’s right. There’s something magical about taking an antique (and very well built) woodworking hand tool and bringing it back to working order. Removing the rust, tuning up the parts, and sharpening the blade gives a feeling of satisfaction; especially when seeing the finished result. I get a feeling of a connection with the past, with my ancestors, with a time when things were made ...

Now lets see, if I remember the pearls of expressed coffee wisdom that one art instructor, passed on to me one day, while looking over the stages of various pieces in my workshop on one visit. ”One should alwa...

Wavy Shelves

04-21-2008 06:45 AM by woodup | 2 comments »

This project was kind of reverse engineering for me. I had actually built this sectional bookshelf several years ago. My wife and I had seen similar designs at furniture stores but the height or thickness of the pieces were not what we were looking for. I was able to get my contractor saw as part of the deal to make the shelves. The design itself is ‘fairly straight’ forward. Each sectional is exactly the same with the middle sectional reversed to create the...
