starting my new passion #1: New to woodworking, looking for advise

10-21-2014 03:41 AM by Gwjames | 3 comments »

Ok, so I am new to wood working, I did a couple very simple projects such as a farm house style table and after built a matching bench for one side, I am a grown man and refuse to sit on a bench so I decided that eventually I would design and build some farmhouse chairs, I didn’t think I was quite ready yet so I built (I am still finishing it) a farmhouse bed. Any body noticing a trend yet? I really like the farmhouse style furniture. Well when I first started I was just u...

Why buy it when you can make it! #19: Dresser Rehab [Part 7] - Epilogue

10-21-2014 12:43 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

The dresser is finally done with the project posted! And my wife has turned around and asked for some work (strip and re-paint) to be re-done to my old bachelor days Ikea dresser for our son. My first declaration was (naturally) ”I know just the tool to get the job done! But I don’t have it so I’ll have to buy it to get started. wink”. I’ve decided to take a different approach with this project to “have fun”. So for my first round of fun…mo...

Ads on lumberjocks

10-21-2014 12:35 AM by rustfever | 19 comments »

Are you getting tired as I with these ads regarding garbage, Ellen Degeneratre, weight loss, Dr Oz and all of the other ‘Daytime Soap’ issues? I am near to discontinuing my participation in Lumberjocks after some half-dozen years as a believer! Owner/Manager/ Ms Debbie….Wake up. This is a woodworking site, not a ‘Daytime Soap Opera’ site. We can leave, if you wish us to do so.

Powertool Reviews #1: Losing Weight - Dwalt Cordless Driver Review

10-20-2014 11:53 PM by Brad | 0 comments »

You can review this article and others at my blog www.bradfordwoodworking.blogspot.com I cover woodworking , wine, cigars and more. Since it’s been quite awhile since my last post I looked around my shop at the various items to review and discuss and decided to focus on one of my favorite/best purchases in the past few years… and while I wish it were a Sawstop that day has not yet come. I’m talking about upgrading my drill/drivers from an old worn out Craftsman drill to s...

Homemade Band sawmill #4: Gantry Rails and log bed

10-20-2014 09:58 PM by geekwoodworker | 7 comments »

The rails and log bed with log clamps are complete and after testing it by cutting another log I found some short comings with the clamps and my right blade guides. Here is the new blade guide for the right side and it works much better and is smaller than old one. The log clamps had some serious short comings as I had the uprights too close to where the left blade guides travel and unfortunately were in the way of blade guide for which I had to put a block between them ...

That Hole in the Floor #1: The Trap door framing and mechanism

10-20-2014 09:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

I’ve remodeled the entire house. Always a work in progress but mostly done. Ripped out walls, replaced paneling with sheetrock/paint, replaced carpets with hardwood floors, I made new kitchen cabinets, all moldings… etc. I’ve blogged most of it as I went along. The hole in the ground:We have a cellar that takes up about half the floor area of the house. The rest is a slab. It is a washroom, storage, houses the hot water tank, pump tank, etc. It’s finished off pretty...

Fully Off Axis Stem Goblet (work in progress)

10-20-2014 08:06 PM by TannerTurnings | 3 comments »

Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...

A Tool Story....

10-20-2014 06:48 PM by handsawgeek | 1 comment »

In last week’s blog entry, I presented some photos from a trip Mrs. handsawgeek and I had taken to Korea four years ago. In that same digital photo file were other shots that reminded me of a ‘tool story’ associated with that trip. During our visit, we were guests for a couple of weeks at the home of her eldest sister and brother-in-law in the city of In Cheon. In the Korean tradition, I refer to this brother-in-law as ‘Kun Hyong Nim’ which translates into ‘Eldest Brother-In-Law’...

Stickley #603 Tabouret Table #1: Half Lap and Lapped Dovetail Joints

10-20-2014 06:36 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

This little Stickley table has fascinated me for years, but it was never the top project on my list. I think anyone interested in building arts and crafts furniture should build these two projetcs: a Morris chair, and this little tabouret table. That way you have a place to rest and a place to set your drink. The 603 is more complicated than it looks, with offset half lap joinery and dovetails too. I actually can’t imagine designing a project that required the joinery to come togeth...

CHRISTMAS GIFT BASKETS #4: Progress

10-20-2014 06:15 PM by stefang | 16 comments »

Today I finished the scrolling and got the sides ready for the bottom panels. There are a some important points that are outlined below. GETTING A GOOD CUTOnce again I am offering some advice on the cutting. Many of you will be light years ahead of me with your scrolling skills, but others, like myself, who use their scroll saws less frequently can get rusty. This advice is directed mainly to them. Cutting technique (again) I have revised my cutting technique a little since scrol...
