Building the Ultimate Garage Woodshop #7: Help from Todd Clippinger

2 days ago by Blake | 4 comments »

So, lots of progress. Where did we leave off? Something like this… (its getting better in terms of organization) Finally it was time to call in the big guns. Todd Clippinger has been begging me for some woodworking lessons ever since he found out about me so I finally let him come all the way over from Montana to California to work with me and pick up some mad skills ;) Well we ripped up the place and did a ton of electrical work, installed a window, moved a door, and he a...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #5: Finishing off the bark, Marking the Cut

2 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I don’t usually sand with 60 grit, but I went through disc after disk getting the last of the bark off the sides and getting it rough sanded. I’ve left a tiny bit of the inner layer of bark here and there because it is quite difficult to get all of it off. I will apply a bit of finish over a section at some point to see how it looks before deciding if I need to go the extra mile. Because of the sharp angle on most of the edge, it will not be particularly visible day to day. He...

Why buy it when you can make it! #9: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill [Part 2]

2 days ago by paxorion | 0 comments »

I picked up some Arm-R-Seal on Friday during the Woodcraft anniversary sale and I am definitely a believer in the product’s quality. For starters, it is so easy to use, and levels itself off very nicely. I have finished four coats so far, and plan on putting 1 more coat on tonight, before I let the mill cure for a few days. Looking forward to a grind come next weekend! (My wife can’t wait)

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #4: Thinking through the Full Blind Miter Jig

2 days ago by CharlesA | 0 comments »

For the waterfall leg, I’m using Full Blind Multiple Splined joinery as described by Tage Frid. I discovered this method by asking a question in a forum post here on LJ. Thanks to Woodendeavor and Randy-ATX for directing me this way. I purchased three of his books. This description is found on pp. 102ff of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery The joint looks like this: The two biggest keys will be to cut the slab correctly and building the jig so the miters line up...

ScrollSaw Forum #2: Trade and Craft Shows Current Sales

2 days ago by jerrells | 1 comment »

I saw a post on FaceBook about not receiving good returns from craft shows, and ETSY, in the current economy. The last show I attended, as a vendor, was last fall. In my opinion I did very well. I thought I would post an open question about in the current market.

Bent Form Guitar Stand #3: Putting the main pieces together

2 days ago by Matt Nudi | 2 comments »

Got just a little more work done today. Got this piece glued up and it will be sitting for a day or two. After that I will be drilling out two holes and plugging them with dowels and then doing the work to get the main support attached and pinned. Once that is done I will be making the base and doing the final work and then finally, doing a finish. A lot of work but if I can keep moving like this I should get it done within a reasonable amount of time! Next I had to pin the back with a...
