Bridge City Tools: TenonMaker TM-1 #1: My New TenonMaker TM-1

10-22-2016 04:57 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I ordered a Bridge City Tools TenonMaker TM-1. It arrived yesterday. It is a small device. I am still trying to get experience with it. I was also interested in ordering their KM-1 Kerfmaker tool, but it was not in stock, or not a stock item. I believe customers must indicate that they would order this tool if Bridge City Tool made another production run. However, I am not sure if they are going to make the Kerfmaker again. Since I am left wonder on this subject, I am going to attemp...

Toy costruction #115: Sprint race car gas tank, gluing it together.

10-21-2016 09:23 PM by htl | 5 comments »

The tires you will see here are just leftovers from other project but help get an idea what’s going on.There’s a lot more to this project than is first seen when looking at it just on a shelf as I discovered when I started building one..Of course making a frame out of dowels had something to do with that. It’s interesting how they designed the manifold, may be using this idea on other projects.

Summer Uke Build #6: Cutting Soundhole Making Radius Dishes

10-21-2016 07:16 PM by onoitsmatt | 0 comments »

Today’s update is a bit incomplete. I cut out the soundhole and sanded down the olive wood rosette to be a little more level with the top. I bought a drum sander in the interim as I just don’t trust myself to flatten and thickness the top with any accuracy. I’ll send the top through the drum sander sometime soon to get the finished thickness/flatness for the rosette and top. I put the back behind it for contrast in the photo. I also have started trying to figure...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1792: Finished the Pumpkin and Started Something New

10-21-2016 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

It is already past my 'normal blog time' this morning, so I will get right down to business. I am figuring out that sometimes we need to sacrifice chit-chat for quality content. While I like to sit and muse about the day, my plans and life in general with you all, I am finding that sometimes it is best if I just get to what I want to do and talk about it a little less. The photos speak for themselves. My routine has changed somewhat lately and I have been trying to hit the gym pr...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #81: The Dungeon Workshop - Reclaimed West Stone Wall Section

10-21-2016 03:07 AM by Paul Bucalo | 1 comment »

I needed more wall space to get hand and power tools organized and out in the open, so I decided to work over the small patch of stone wall between the benches on the West side of the shop. Here is what the area looked like before conversion: The finished conversion: The most important criteria was that nothing hanging or sitting on the shelves would be struck by hands, shoulders or hips while walking past the wall. I frequently rely upon the AC-powered B&D electric drill, es...

Sharpening Center #5: Consolidated Center

10-20-2016 04:34 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Finally, I placed all of my sharpening equipment and sharpening stones onto this single mobile cart. This is my sharpening center. It consists of my Grizzly T100010ANV 10” Wet Grinder that I used my Tormek sharpening jigs that are mainly used to sharpen my turning chisels. When I started sharpening I used this flat granite stone with sandpaper with grits from 120 all the way to 2,000. After taking a Woodcraft sharpening class taught by the store’s owner Ryan Balls two weeks ago...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1791: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like (Kim) Christmas

10-20-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I have always been one of those designers that loves to work on designs from others that I admire. I can't help it. I see something that someone else creates that 'speaks to me' and I can't help but try to make the time to create it. I look at it as helping support the industry that I love so much. It also gives my brain a rest and keeps me feeling like I am having fun. After all – I believe that enjoying what I am doing is linked in a big part to the amount of success t...
