Antique Radio Cabinet Retrofit #3: Repairs

01-26-2015 08:06 AM by Pags | 1 comment »

I began the project this weekend with repairs…. nothing too exciting here. The first problem I addressed was the lower frame which was falling apart. On the back side of the console cabinet there is a screw block holding a rail to the side of the cabinet. A screw was missing and the rail had come loose. Check out the huge adjustable double loop AM antenna… going to keep that and use it for the tuner for better AM reception… looking forward to listening to a few bas...

A Wonderful Shop Tool..From Walmart!

01-26-2015 06:29 AM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

Like most other home hobbyist woodworkers, I generally have to squeeze my shop time in around all the other life activities: the full time job, family time, church activities, household chores, yard work, and, in my case, music practice. Available daily time to make sawdust and shavings ranges anywhere from twenty minutes to 1 hour per any given session. Some days, it doesn’t even happen at all. I usually make it a point to spend around 15 minutes in the shop early each morning whi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1483: New Adventures in Publishing!

01-26-2015 05:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

All this month I have been working in many directions. I know to some of you that is nothing new, but this month it seems that I have skipped posting a little more than usual – not because I have not be doing anything, but pretty much the opposite. When I do projects for myself, I never mind showing you all the processes and steps along the way. I love sharing this part of things with you all because I know that many of my readers here have their own businesses, and I think it some...

Wood magazine

01-26-2015 05:15 AM by Ed | 2 comments »

Maybe I am alone on this but I find the site for Wood Magazine, to be one of the most annoying on the internet. I presume that if you are subscribed it would not be so bad. Do I really need three or four pop ups during each visit to sell me a subscription. I realize that memory if failing but really!! On another note I was going to post some pics of projects, but will have to dumb them down to get under the pixel limit?? I enjoy everyones input into this site. Many great ideas with good...

Wooden Reamer #1: Getting the blade ready

01-25-2015 10:41 PM by siavosh | 0 comments »

I’m hoping to build a chair this year, and a common joint in many wooden style chairs is the tapered mortise and tenon. A reamer is a tool used to make the tapered mortise. After reading Jennie Alexander’s guide on making your own (as well as Peter Galbert’s), I knew I finally had found a use for the junky compass saw I had bought as my first woodworking tool. For the first step, I tried to form a 45 degree bevel on the straight edge. I’ll be honest, this was precarious and difficult...

Working with recycled timber #34: A Gate for No 1 Son

01-25-2015 09:43 PM by robscastle | 4 comments »

My Number one son, Adam and his family sold their home over Christmas New Year, and moved into a rental property pending finding a new abode. They have a family dog so the yard had to be dog proofed. The owners were OK with us making a gate and closing off under the house so we set to work. We saw a tile shop and out front was a stack of very good packing timber, they were happy for us to take as much as we wanted so a load went into the ute. It looked to be a pine gen...
