Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #19: I HATE POSTS MADE OF's not etiquette, it's about marketing...........

In some sense, we are all in the business of attracting attention, everyone wants their posts to be read. If you attract attention to your post, and then get people to read it, then you maximize your impact. That is, you satisfy yourself, and you satisfy your readers. A win/win situation. So here is why I don’t read posts that depend mostly upon links. Here is why I prefer, and push, for the whole post to be in one place, whether it is a review, blog, or whatever. If you want a lo...

Bandsaw/Drill Press Box

05-21-2010 05:34 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Ok so here is the blog to go along with my lastest project. I really wanted to do something in the shop from start to finish yesterday. I was cutting up some wood I got from work due to storm damage and decided to cut a few otherpieces that have been floating around in my garage for a while. A bandsaw box is something I have been wanting to really try for a while (made a few experiments) So here is the process I took from a fresh log. Sorry did nto get nearly as many pics as I guess I should ...

The Great Workshop Vacation

05-21-2010 01:41 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #3: Cutting the Mortise

05-21-2010 05:39 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

Two of my three new chisels showed up yesterday and after about an hour on the water stones I had the 6mm chisel honed. I flattened the back and sharpened the face. My honing guide would not hold these chisels because they are too deep. Because of this I just sharpened it at the factory angle and did not put a micro bevel on as I had intended. Here is a shot of the chisels. Tonight I got started cutting the first mortise. This is my first attempt at cutting a mortise by hand but i...
