My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1846: Catching Up

07-20-2017 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I feel about writing again. It is funny how that works, isn't it?I didn't realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my absence. I very much appreciate being missed, and I promise I will do my best to try to post more regularly. It is just that sometimes getting back into a routine can be tough. I certainl...

Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #2: Tetris

07-20-2017 01:30 AM by Tony Ennis | 0 comments »

Not much to report this time. I’m trying to figure out a layout for the top 2 trays. The tray including pliers and chisels is pretty easy. This is because all pliers are about the same size, and so are the chisels I’ll be including in the box. So you can see that a few vertical dividers and we’re completely serviceable. This tray would be about 2” tall though if I spread the pliers out, or removed a pair, it could be 1.5”. So indeed it has become a gam...

Tool Tip #30: Tool air cooler

07-19-2017 09:11 PM by robscastle | 5 comments »

Majuvla’s post prompted this one.Not wanting to hijack his post or to be seen as to be tacking on the end of his here it is. My grinder I use for linishing and all those sorts of jobs, also has a white wheel fitted for sharpening tools as well.When sharpening chisels and items sensitve to changes from heat build up they can be cooled with chilled compressed air directed through a vortex to prevent the tool being subjected to temperature build up. Its operation requires dry cl...

WoodChick #4: Some History and Things I Hope to Accomplish

07-19-2017 06:15 PM by sfhipchick | 10 comments »

My Amazing Dad and His Workshop When I was a little girl, I loved to spend time with my father in his garage workshop. I would climb up onto one of our tall stools and watch him in rapt fascination while he repaired things around the house or built something new. I loved looking at all of his neatly organized shelves full of Gerber baby food jars and cans of Gerber formula, each re-purposed for screws, nails and a myriad of unidentifiable do-dads. Dad would ask me to get various materials ...

At least until the BLO cures. Then the hinges and a latch get installed Rather a thin fix, but seems to work, also used the same wood to fill in the square holes where the grooves came through,,a look from above? Maybe a look at the end? Showing how the “patch” looks And.maybe a “front” view.. Maybe…trying to decide on which face will be the front…. Or maybe this one? I also gave the box a second coat of BLO, the first was just soaki...

5$ Garage Sale Treasure-A refurbished Miter Trimmer

07-18-2017 09:54 PM by Greg | 3 comments »

Pretty stoked to run across a nice old miter trimmer that a guy was selling at a garage sell this past weekend. I asked him how much and he first said, ”$10” then changed his mind and said, “Give me 5$.” I said, “SOLD!” I brought it home and piece of scrap cherry to try it out. I sliced off a 45° angle with an effortless slice and could not stop grinning at my luck. I have always wanted one but never could justify the price every time I create a so...

Well, I had gone out to buy a few supplies for the shop, Monday…. And, I finally found the parts for the Langdon Mitre Box’s stock holders…. Figured I could just slip down to the shop, and at least install them….something was calling … The box wanted out of the clamps….took a while to remove all of them… Looking like something the cat dragged in…top wasn’t much better.. Well, since I did buy a new 80grit belt for the sander&...
