My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1451: Meet "Aurora"

11-26-2014 06:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

My goodness yesterday just flew by! It was one of those days when I was busy from the moment I awoke and before I knew it, it was getting dark out. I had several things happening at once, and after I returned from my errands, I got my new design ready to cut on the saw. But after I had things all lined up on my wood pieces, I saw that some revisions were needed on the pattern and the old cliche of "back to the drawing board" rang true. After tweaking things a bit, I was able to...

Thorsen House Cabinet #3: Basic Component Appraisal

11-26-2014 04:07 AM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Things have started to fit into place, if you forgive the awful phrasing. Specifically, I have been identifying exactly which parts of the original cabinet correspond to either fundamental components (“top”, “muntin”, “skirt”, “side”, “base”, etc.) or parts built upon those fundamental pieces such as door frame moulding. A lot of this was done by careful examination of the relatively limited materials available and basic sense checki...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #5: Adding the table to the BT's

11-25-2014 07:01 PM by Todd Swartwood | 4 comments »

The next step was the Oak table it is 2” thick X 13” wide and around 80” long. I started by selecting some oak that would easily rip into 2 3/8” strips. I think I had about 15 strips. I laminated the strips together and let it set overnight.I then planned the Piece down to 2” thick, jointed 1 edge and ripped the piece down to 13” and cleaned that edge up on the jointer.I then attached the table to the bridge on the BT with 8 1 1/2” screws from under t...

What to do with leftovers?

11-25-2014 12:49 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a few things leftover from the screen door build. Got to thinking about building SOMETHING out of them, just to get them out of the way. Then, I noticed where all the “ready Use” planes were sitting Even the smaller smoothers wer hanging out a bit. Had a 7” wide piece of pine. Laid the longest plane of the group on the plank. Needed to find an angle that it would sit at. Once that was found, a couple “sides” were cut out of the plank The...

Current Project #23: Guess What I'm Making Now

11-25-2014 12:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 18 comments »

Guess what I’m making now. All the parts are shown in the photo. The only hint I’ll give is that it’s by the request of my wife and it’s NOT a shop project. Any Guesses? I should be posting this project tomorrow during our snow event. (Unless of course we lose power.) EDIT: The dowel has not been cut yet. It’s a pointed skewer, also known as a poorboy’s 3/16 in. dowel. EDIT II: It’s a tripod mount for an ipod. See the project here: [link]

New Tools Added to the Shop #1: Rikon Bandsaw

11-25-2014 09:23 AM by Steven | 4 comments »

Yesterday I ordered my Bandsaw, a Rikon 10-325. It was on sale at Sears for $799 plus an additional $40 off for using my sears card. Total price $759.99 delivered to my local Sears store. Next, I wanted the Rikon mobility kit. I found it at Woodcraft on sale for $49.99. The total package is $809.98. What a bargain. The money I saved will be buying the Porter Cable Drill Press at Lowes. You never really save $$ do you? It gets spent somewhere! I am a newbe so I will attempt a video o...
