Tools in my Shop #1: Brand New, never used, 1994 Powermatic 1140 Drill Press

01-30-2015 02:45 PM by WoodWorkHer | 3 comments »

oh how I love craigslist! I just picked up this brand new (the tie wrap has not even been taken off the cord) 1994 Powermatic 1140F drill press. The manual, hex keys, and warranty card were tucked away under the belt cover. Came with a vise too!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1486: My Art Play Date Projects DONE!

01-30-2015 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is with much relief that I am writing this morning. It isn't usual that I get stressed out over doing a project, but these past few weeks have been somewhat worrisome to me. I mentioned the other day that I was invited to participate in the Art Play Date online class event, and while I was thrilled to be asked to teach, I was somewhat intimidated. After all, the line up of teachers included many teachers that I have followed and admired since I began painting. These were what we c...

Wooden Reamer #2: Wrapping it up

01-30-2015 06:34 AM by siavosh | 4 comments »

With the blade ready, it was time to finally really use my new spokeshave. The result isn’t as elegant as I hoped for, but it seems to do the trick. The compass blade provides a very slight taper, but I think that’s what’s recommended for most chair work. We will see. << Sorry about the side ways pictures! >> Next, I’m hoping I can start to work on the matching spindle shaver to make a matching tight tenon.

Misc. Shop Stuff #50: New / Old Marking Knife

01-30-2015 02:11 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 16 comments »

Went on a run to a few flea markets this afternoon and found a few things to continue my slide down the slippery slope of vintage tooldom: The 7oz SW hammer was a nice find at four bucks, as was the Craftsman-badged saw for six dollars. The Stanley 1/4” No.40 chisel was four bucks, the EC Stearns mitre box was five, and the seller threw in the small, rosewood-handled putty knife for free. And there was a plan for it: I wanted to make it a marking knife for the tool chest. I ha...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #16: Prairie Sofa & Loveseat, Part 1

01-29-2015 09:28 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

I’ve just started a big furniture build, both a sofa and loveseat. The shop is going to get crowded. I’ve started a build series on it on my blog. This time, I get to start with the tree the lumber came from, sustainably, urban-ly harvested from the U of Chicago campus!

I'm building an Army #6: The battlefield

01-29-2015 06:50 PM by Gianni | 3 comments »

After a flurry of activity getting all of the pieces cut over Christmas shutdown, I sort of fell into a lull on this project. Mostly I was trying to find a suitable material with which to build the board. My initial thought was to use glass mosaic tiles, similar to my coffee table (see projects). I really liked the idea of it, so I started looking for suitable tiles. This came to be a somewhat painful process, as I needed two sets of tiles that would work well with the walnut and maple,...

I'm building an Army #5: Drilling, Drilling, Drilling

01-29-2015 06:32 PM by Gianni | 0 comments »

So I decided to add weights to the pieces, which appears to be the norm. I think it’s more of a ‘feel’ thing that gives them some substance during play more than it’s required for stability or any such thing. Perhaps someone could weigh in on why it is, but certainly when I’ve played with pieces that have a ‘heft’ it seems to indicate a better quality. To that end, I picked up some 1/4 Oz fishing weights to add to the bases. I’ve seen reco...
