Odds 'N' Ends #6: Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

02-04-2016 10:36 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

Portable Cyclone cart #1: Finished

02-04-2016 10:10 PM by MikeMcK | 2 comments »

After hours (no make that days) of trolling Pinterest looking for ideas for my Dust Deputy I came up with this design. My main goal was to eliminate as many 90 degree turns between the cyclone and the shop-vac.

Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1691: Making Progress and Catching Up

02-04-2016 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After Monday night's power outage, things got back to normal rather quickly. I spent the next day finishing up the outstanding orders that I had and getting everything boxed up and ready to ship out the door. I worked at a very relaxed pace and enjoyed packaging everything up. Among the orders was another one of my SLDPK238 Halloween Haunted Carousel kits, which is one of my favorite things to sell. I think of the people who are receiving the items and I really do take a lot of care and p...

Short and pointy.

02-04-2016 12:06 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Short entry for today. I did a lot today, but it was without the visual impact of usual days. I milled up some planks for a shelf under the bench. Then I turned my bench into a Foosball table by gluing the skirts in place. I glued up the blank for the deadman today and will get it put in place tomorrow. That’s All Folks!Short and pointy.Take care and have fun woodworking.

what's a tape measure used for.

02-03-2016 10:05 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 3 comments »

If you ever come into my wood shop you will probably notice you won’t see a tape measure that isn’t covered in cobwebs. I rarely ever use one. My daughter asked me the other how come she never see’s me using one, even though I have one. My response to her was “What’s a tape measure used for” she looked at me like I was off my rocker (which by the way I am) because she knew that I should know that, So then I explained to her, I have always done every thing b...

My Woodworking Projects #2: My first plywood carcass project - a painted bookcase

02-03-2016 10:03 PM by Jordash | 1 comment »

So just after Christmas I decided to have a go at a carcass type project. I got carried away and bought a Makita track saw to help me break down sheet goods. So I went to my local diy shop (Wickes) and bought some of their ‘hardwood ply’, in reality its pretty rubbish stuff, but the timber yards were shut between Christmas and New Year, not to mention the fact that I wanted to play with my new toy. All in all this was a really quick project, I got all the joinery done in a few day...
