Bath Stool #6: Saddle

04-23-2018 02:37 PM by Diego Cassels | 3 comments »

Well this was a great idea, I made lots of design errors that I had to fix with little adjustments. All of this could have been avoided if I had followed the original plans!! So don´t make the same mistakes I made!! I´m very happy with the final result. Here I just made a straight mortise and it all went fine. I repeated the same for the other leg.

Moravian Workbench Build #2: Bench Top

05-23-2018 03:53 PM by ElroyD | 3 comments »

Those who read the first entry in my Moravian Workbench Build may recall that I had been working in our laundry room till the weather warmed up enough outside. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Winter had a hard time letting go of the northeast this year, and I was eventually forced out of my small laundry room workspace. I didn’t want to stop work on the bench though, so I retreated to our very dark, very dusty, very musty, very in need of repair basement where I began work on my be...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #1: Committing Myself

10-17-2007 12:14 PM by Dekker | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. After blogging about books on boxes , I got the itch to make some boxes! I haven’t delved extensively into boxes, and it has been ages, so it’s like starting new again. My wife makes jewellery that she sells online and at craft shows. She has a show sometime in late October, and another in early November, and I thought it would be a great idea to offer some jewellery boxes next to the jewellery. I therefore have a motivational deadline...

Band saw blade #1: Keep a sharp blade

10-10-2015 02:03 PM by Midway | 3 comments »

Has anyone sharpened a 3 pitch 1/2 -3/4 wide bandsaw blade.I thought this was a wast of time until i tried it. works great unplug saw, blow all sawdust off bandsaw and around it before starting. use dremmel and 3/16-1/4 dia x 1/2 long grinding stone.mark blade with sharpie or tape to show starting spot. this method woorks great on a dull blade. (not a blade that has hit a nail or horeshoe)the area you will be sharpening is the hook area not the top angle of the tooth. with blade ...

Got the fall 2015 issue #60 of Scrollsaw Woodworking to build another project but found the patterns for Lazy Raccoon and had to give it a try.I’ve never done a intarsia before so just thought I’d give it a try.Have got it pretty well all cut out and shaped but will do some fine tuning tomorrow but just wanted to show my progress. I found a walnut cutting board while scrounging the other day, was chopped up really bad but nothing my planer couldn’t fix.I started out with ...

This is a simple sled to avoid ANY snipe. It’s probably been done before but I had a real need for a pristine cut yesterday. My thicknesser is adjusted as well as I can do it. The beginning and end cut are minimal and for most work is inconsequential. I couldn’t tolerate any deviation with these fb’s because they are very close to the final length already. My Queensland Walnut was only big enough to yield two fingerboards and four headstock / backstrap veneers. This...

Tool thoughts #12: Lights, camera Sawdust!

11-01-2008 01:04 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

I haven’t been out in the shop much the past couple of weeks, short of turning a couple of pens and starting a spoon last weekend. I decided to rearrange a few things today, starting with my temporary wiring panel. I’m still saving up for real wiring in the shop, among other things. I Swapped locations on the bandsaw and storage cabinet. I hung a 4’ shop fixture, which made a world of difference. I also ran an extension cord up and over to power my tablesaw and chop...

DIY Christmas Tree Stand Cover | Rustic Christmas Tree Box

12-02-2015 03:09 PM by Chris McDowell | 3 comments »

I didn’t know this was a thing until this month when my wife showed me pictures and asked me to make one. This one is made out of an old pallet and some old house siding. Not difficult to make at all, just a simple box glued and nailed together. My wife stained it. I was skeptical while making it. It is basically just an ugly box. But it looks pretty cool once you set the tree in it, I gotta say. Watch the video here:

I have spent the last two days cleaning up the basement to use as a shop. I shoud have done this a lot sooner but have just got out of a bad bout of depression and didn’t really care about it.

I guess I’m all set for now, here is what I found; 10” compound mitre saw10” table sawbiscuit joinerrouterjig sawfinnish nailerbelt sander table top drill press (hidi...
