Making a chisel from a screwdriver

09-22-2014 02:51 PM by Marty Backe | 0 comments »

I needed a very small chisel for a box that I’m making. Rather than waiting to buy one, I grabbed a small screwdriver and transformed it into a very sharp chisel.

Custom Wood Signs, Fellow Mortals Progress

09-22-2014 01:23 PM by Scott | 3 comments »

Custom wood sign progress pics. I am at a point now where I will build up another layer to achieve my 4.5” thickness. I have located wood similar in grain / color to the layers directly below. Im sure there is an easier way to do this, but here is my clamping… Note for anyone attempting odd clamps like this. Always do dry run first. Trust me, Ive learned the hard way :) Thanks for looking! I make custom wood signs for any application: business signs, home signs, cabin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1407: Not Quite "Time Off"

09-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I suppose I need to reevaluate my definition of the meaning of having 'time off'. While I had a wonderful weekend, I had intended to take a couple of "me" days and just putz around the house here and do some things completely for myself. I also wanted to catch up on a couple of things like bringing out the autumn decorations (we don't have many, but I like them anyway) and changing my all season tree to a cool Halloween theme. After all, we are now into the last week of ...

Marquetry jewelry box, the beginning

09-22-2014 04:11 AM by Longcase | 5 comments »

A few years ago while on vacation in England I bought 5 original marquetry drawings at an auction, they had come from the Gillows furniture company dated from 1910 to 1926. All of the drawing are of classical design but one in particular caught my eye, and I knew that this would make a great box lid. As the original drawing was about 9”x12” that determined the size of the jewelry box.Here a pic of one of the marquetry panels ready to be glued down I used the classic metho...

Kids Workbench Build #8: Getting Started On The Vises...

09-22-2014 02:42 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Well, now that we have legs and about 99% of the vise parts have arrived I felt the need to get started on that portion of the build this weekend. We started out looking for a chunk of oak big enough to get a chop out of. We ended up with this one.. kinda skunky and random checks in it but there was enough good area to fit a chop out of it so it will do. Then while he was napping I cut it out on the band saw.. Then feeling refreshed he helped clean it up a bit.. E...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #3: Fuming the Box Interior

09-21-2014 10:22 PM by Roger Kimmel | 3 comments »

Two days after I took it out of the “gas chamber” the swelling due to moisture had gone down enough that I could remove the lid. I was a little surprised that the interior had darkened as much as the outside, but I guess I shouldn’t have been. The lid was certainly not airtight. What did surprise me was that I had put a coat of Danish oil on the inside prior to assembly, and the ammonia had darkened the wood right through this small amount of finish. It just shows ho...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #8: Drawer Construction

09-21-2014 09:49 PM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...
