Hand Tool Journey #43: Stanley SW #358 Miter Box Restoration #9... Saw Handle So Far..

18 hours ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

I am not quite as far along as I had hoped I would be by now (I really wanted this wrapped up last weekend) but more important projects were on hand last weekend that took priority ( See the finished project if you are curious ) I did however, get the holes located and drilled and am about 50% of the way with the shaping. Thanks to LJ user Summerfi for pointing me to a link on how to locate the holes in an old saw plate ( here ). I took the premise for it and modified it in a way that ma...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #6: Filling in the Knot; making the Spline Jig; choosing the Cut-Line

19 hours ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

The board had one large knot at the end of the board. The knot was fairly soft, so I dug it out a bit and filled it with epoxy mixed with the router shavings from flattening it. I did not like the look I got—looked like melamine. I dug out the knot from the other side and used finer sawdust instead of the router shavings (what I’ve done before). But the knot is so large that it now looked like I had filled it with MDF. So, I used a chisel again and shaved off a 1/16&#...

What to do with an old bed frame?

19 hours ago by bandit571 | 5 comments »

That kind of fall apart. Instead of a box spring, it had an old waterbed platform under it Tore things down into “parts” Some posts will get rived apart, as they were three piece glue ups. Longer stuff to be cut down a bit I think I will keep these pieces. Got to sawing stuff down. Working down some leg parts. The goal was to build a Frame & Panel Tool Chest, using the parts from the old bed. Rive a board means to split it down the length, hoping for ...

Elia Bizzarri’s Windsor Chair Workshop Tour

19 hours ago by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of Elia Bizzari’s traditional Windsor chair workshop in Hillsboro, North Carolina. I found Elia to not only be warm & welcoming, but incredibly hilarious. We had some great laughs together in his workshop and will be working on filming a DVD together in the near future. Please contact me if a Windsor chair tutorial DVD interests you. Elia started traditional woodworking as a teenager, and eventually discovered his passion for making trad...

Woodworking Machinery/Tools Reviews #1: My experience with SawStop

19 hours ago by Ron Messersmith | 4 comments »

Recently, I switched my main shop workhorse from a MiniMax CU300 Smart Combination Machine to the 5 HP Industrial Saw Stop Tablesaw. My reason is pretty simple: I am changing my major work from furniture to small boxes, bowls and wood toys. I am 67 and just want to get away from the heavy lifting. The MiniMax was a great machine but was just a little more than I needed and did not really support the jigs I had accumulated over the years or the Incra Fence system that I wanted to support...

Pricing Projects

1 day ago by TheWoodenOyster | 11 comments »

Pricing Projects I see the topic of pricing work come up over and over again, so I thought I would share my thoughts on the matter. By no means am I a guru of pricing or anything, but I have come up with a decent system that seems to work for me. I am currently a “full time” woodworker, but haven’t been for long. There are many more experienced folks on LJ’s, so take this with a grain of salt. I start with the same master excel spreadsheet for every project. The spreadsheet has three se...

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

OK. Only two. But you are here reading so I got your attention. Today will I will show you the final photos of the scroll sawn version of my "Nevermore" plaque. I finished it up yesterday, and it is heading out to New Jersey this morning to be published in the November issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine, which will come out in September. That will give those of you who want to make it  plenty of time. I am pleased with how it came out, but I still couldn&...
