Summer Uke Build #3: Thicknessing, Jointing and Joining the Top

08-30-2016 07:46 PM by onoitsmatt | 0 comments »

I’m very late with posting this. It was 114 degrees in the shop, so didn’t spend much time taking photos. This all took place on Father’s Day 2016. For the top, I picked up a couple of 6’ planks of cedar fencing from the Orange Store. No idea what kind of cedar, but the wood was cheap enough and I managed to find two pieces that were straight grained and had good stretches that were clean and knot-free. They’ve been sitting in the garage for several months...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1770: From Fairy Land to Fantasy

08-30-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

As an independent, freelance designer, I am fortunate that I am able to vary my designs to my heart's content. While I do have to (somewhat) follow trends, I have the flexibility of creating not only the type of pattern that I would like to see, but also pick the subject, type of media that is used to create it. It is really what makes things fun. But with that fun, also comes responsibility. Many know that 'artists' tend to march to their own drummer. While this creates new ...

Thank You #2: Sorry to go.

It’s been some time since I was able to get on here, and even longer able to do much of work. I have had to get out of working with wood of anyways. My lungs has taken a turned on me. I am doing right now the best I am able to do. I have had to start staying with my oldest son, and get pampered 24hrs. a day. They are taking the best care any hospital, nursing homes, could ever do. I have to stay in an air cooled, low humidity room. That sure ddon’t leave me much I get to do.I took...

Wedgie Sled

08-29-2016 11:56 PM by Lee | 0 comments »

I had to make a segmented ring for a clock im making and decided to try the wedgie sled, i’ll have to say its the simplest thing to make, but its absolutely incredible, Jerry, your a freking genius. On my very first test the pieces came out absolutely perfect. Now I can get the walnut and maple out and make the final ring. Finally got some pics uploaded, I had a piece of adjustable miter bar left over from another project so I cut a shallow dado to lock it in, and (borrowed a 30deg t...

Air Quality #6: New Respirator

08-29-2016 11:18 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

Purchased a new Respirator [3M 7500] based upon Marc S’s example. Been looking for a Respirator that wouldn’t fog up my glasses. The past few I’ve bought either are too hard to breath through or fog up my glasses. Put the 7500 this morning after Amazon delivered. Awesome fit and no fog. This in addition to all the other shop air quality project I’ve been doing should make the environment healthier for me to work in. -Thanks Marc

Flyswatter - wood nerds version

08-29-2016 09:18 PM by mafe | 6 comments »

flyswatterwood nerds version. Hi LJ’s here a little looking back at my summer in Turkey.I basically did no woodworking. It was hot, a normal day temperature was 33 ℃ / 92 ℉, I love this due to the fact I have chronic pain after a spinal neck operation and in the hot dry climate I had only little pain from muscles and nerves but it was too hot for working wood in the day time for a Viking from North. View from the house this summer in Turkey, as you can see a stone throw from the A...

New shop! #8: Shop Essentials

08-29-2016 03:52 PM by Steve Felsheim | 1 comment »

While working on the dust collection pipe installation fiasco, it was brought to my immediate attention that 26 ga metal is sharp. So… Figured I may as well get the fire extinguisher while I was at it. Having a fire is the wrong way to be reminded of getting a fire extinguisher :-) And, equally important, High speed internet. My shop is in the middle of nowhere, so no traditional Internet options (cable/DSL) are no good. I had two options, satellite or cellular. Sate...
