Timber Shows... #5: Looking out...

09-08-2010 10:20 PM by degoose | 2 comments »

If you were standing in the middle of the Torque Workcentre stand at the Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show last weekend this is what you would have been looking at… out over the two TWCs…. we did take three but one went to it’s new home early on the first day… and the display table with what was left of the display items I took… they sold well too… You may have noticed the two TV screens that were playing the TWC DVD on a loop…. there wa...

Hello fellow woodworkers, I was messing around in the woodshop with my BIG BOSCH ROUTER and just thinking about how useful it can be. It’s amazing to me how you can put just about any edge on a piece of wood and give that nice or unique look. It’s that uniqueness people are looking for in a project no matter what type it is. I’ve read many books and articles on routing but haven’t yet tried everything there is to accomplish with a router. I’m learning slo...

Mobile Worktable #1: Rolling worktable design

06-26-2011 11:10 PM by DonnyBahama | 2 comments »

As I said previously, an incredibly generous guy is giving me his cabinet saw in return for me building him a mobile worktable. Due to his vertigo, he needs a fairly high work surface. I had him hold out his hands at the desired height and measured. It was 44” so that’s reflected in my design. The model for this work table is one I saw on The New Yankee Workshop – but I made a few improvements. The pull-rope that raises the caster jacks (thus retracting the casters) is pe...

Nicholson Bench #5: On a roll

11-08-2011 01:58 PM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

After I stopped working on my bench to build the planing stops I thought about some other things that needed to be done to move my project along quicker. I’ve been thinking about sharpening my rip saw again but have stalled it in my desire to work on the bench. Last night I found a finer file I picked up from Lie-Nielsen and touched up the saw. As I worked I could see that there were some area’s that I needed the work and as soon as I finished I gave it a test run. It melted t...

Saw Points #1: Saw Handle Remodelling. AKA, The 'Brit' Method.

03-17-2012 10:23 AM by Johnnyblot | 2 comments »

Hi folksI recently acquired a cheap 14” Brass Backed Tenon Saw off eBay. A non descript saw marked Thos. Bloor, Leicester. The handle was comfortable enough, but I thought why not do a ‘Brit job’ on it?So out came the thick black permanent marker. ( not the best idea with hindsight) and on with the design details. I basically wanted it to look more traditional, with the vintage details. (see Brits Saw Talk blog) like the one I already have. Some of the ...

I really wasn’t going to post today, but I did want to share some information that many of you may be interested in.

I belong to a wonderful group here on the net called “Tole Town.” It is an entirely community that is dedicated to decorative painting. By belonging to Tole Town by obtaini...

Reclaimed Glory #8: Salvaged pine 2x2s rescued

09-17-2013 09:45 PM by palaswood | 2 comments »

I have a serious problem with seeing great wood go to the dump (and a serious wood hoarding problem). I found these 2×2s in the trash behind my favorite property maintenance shop. Nineteen pieces all between 12 and 15 inches long. Some will have to be considerably planed down. They told me they want me to make them into a side table. No really. Sshhh, quiet for a second. What’s that? Now they’re telling me thanks for coming to their rescue. I think today is tr...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1247: Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

02-16-2014 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I woke up this morning to yet another round of snow. This time, it is accompanied by wind and you can barely see across the road to the river. I would almost call it a ‘blizzard’. This winter seems particularly brutal for many people, but at least for us here in Nova Scotia, we have had breaks of warmth and even rain in between the winter storms which continue to melt things down to bare pavement. It does keep the piles of snow manageable. As usual, I don’t mind it ...
