Interviews #1: Woodworking Soundbite

09-10-2008 03:58 AM by rookster | 2 comments »

I recently had the chance to interview an established woodworker about his life in woodworking. Tim McCready stopped by my other woodworking blog, A Woodworking Odyssey, to comment on using pinch dogs, and somehow that grew into something much more than a comment. I think the interview turned out really well, and Tim allowed the use of some pictures to illustrate some of the comments. He does beautiful work. In the interview, Tim talks about: how he entered the trade how he became his...

House Built-in #5: Another Quick Update

12-24-2009 04:26 PM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Just a quick update: I built one drawer box and one drawer front so far, unfortunately I ran out of milled stock to do the second, so I’ll have to mill some more (hopefully this weekend) to finish up the second cabinet. This was the first drawer box I’ve done, so I was very happy that it came out just about perfect in width so that the slides attached properly. I goofed the first time mounting it, forgetting that the slide had to be flush with the front of the box, so the drawer...

Going Pro as a Woodworker Part 2 - The Thrill of It All

03-08-2010 03:50 AM by Charles Brock | 2 comments »

In Part 1- “The Dark Side” I hit the realities of life as a woodworking pro head-on. It’s hard to make a living and may not be your dream. Part 2 gives my version of why the struggles can be worth it if you can finish the drill! The life of a professional woodworker/ furniture maker is a dream to most 9 to 5’ers. Having been one for thirty years I knew what I wanted to do once I earned my retirement. There is not a day that I don’t count my wonderful blessings pe...

The 5 minutes Sled

08-13-2010 09:10 PM by Gabe | 2 comments »

Hi everyone! Just starting out, and already, I’m running out of money :P Thought I’d share this quick tip someone gave me. Never forget that if you have a festool MFT/3, you always have a convenient way of making a sled with scraps in little to no time. Sled is 3/4 mdf, then just use some clamps on the side of the table to get the bottom rail. Upper rail is easy to do with the MFT/3 accessories. From Woodworking From Woodworking Cheers! Looking forward to doing proje...

Evolution of a Shop #21: Large Cross Cut Sled and Huge Lumber Rack

05-18-2011 04:45 PM by Cory | 2 comments »

For a while now I’ve been wanting to build a cross cut sled with more capacity that my current sled (about 15”). I finally found the inspiration to actually do it. I’m working on a table top and some panels that exceed my current sled, so I took a break from that project and jammed this out the other night: The base is 3/4” MDF, the front fence is 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” poplar, and the runner is purpleheart. I had all of the materials laying around the s...
