Shop fox 15 inch planer

02-13-2016 12:00 AM by Dullchisel | 3 comments »

I am in the market for a 15 inch planer and am looking at a shop fox as well as grizzly. I believe they are very close to the same machine but seems most people say the shop fox is a little nicer. I don’t really know to much about it just wanting a good machine. I’m also in debates over getting a spiral cutterhead versus a 3 knive cutterhead. I am wanting to upgrade from a dewalt 733 planer that has only two knives and is getting some age on it. Any thoughts would be appreciated

Keeping Busy

07-03-2010 03:20 AM by Troy | 3 comments »

It seems time to post another entry, even if I haven’t been working specifically on any client projects. On occasion, I like to take time to do some recreational woodworking or shop upgrades/maintenance. I also take care of some of the smaller projects too, like a couple more Alaska metal sculpture bases or plaque blanks. After following Matt’s podcasts throughout the hand plane series, I decided to take care of mine.   Hand Plane Cabinet My planes deserve a better place for st...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #5: Assembly Complete!

08-26-2010 05:14 AM by Mark Colan | 3 comments »

I’ve had a little time in the morning and evening to work on it, so it has gotten done a bit at a time. Completing the Assembly and Installation I had a few minor stumbling blocks. At one point I was wondering how the Base Mounting Clamp screws were ever going to get tightened. The instructions didn’t seem to say they should be. Eventually I figured out that that came a bit later – with the Base Unit in place. But I had no access to the screws… huh? The in...

Close to the point of failure

11-30-2010 08:06 PM by Lochlainn1066 | 3 comments »

Random thought: In turning, the closer you can cut the wood to the point of failure, without actually having it fail, the better the end result. Crotch, burl, spalt, scarring. All failures of the wood which weaken the log and potential board. But in turning, we take those failures, cut away the “good stuff” and get as close to the fail point as possible without it flying apart on the lathe. Can’t do that in furniture work, except for purely decorative areas like pan...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #366: Still Finishing Up

06-10-2011 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, I am still finishing up some things on that skating pond pattern. I know, I know! You are probably all quite tired of hearing about it. Imagine what I am feeling with working on it so long! I made the stands for the figures yesterday and did a final going over of all the paint. I did any necessary touch ups and applied several coats of clear matte spray over them. They do look nice. I went to pick up the mail, and there in my mailbox was the current catalog from the Artists Cl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1758: Short Post to Catch Up

08-09-2016 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Good morning to you all. It has been quite a busy weekend and I have a busy week ahead as well, so this will be just a short post to catch everyone up on what I am working on. Over the weekend, I had several new orders that I had to cut. Once again, I really enjoyed working in the new shop upstairs. It was such a difference from working from the corner of the kitchen. Even though I made do for years, it feels so good to actually have room to do what I need to do – without making a ...
