I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill ( on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #39: Quiet Weekend

07-12-2010 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, here we are with another weekend under our belts. It was a nice, quiet weekend though and I accomplished a lot. Nothing really exciting to talk about though. I got a really decent response on my site from the emailing that I sent and only one person asked (politely) to be removed from the list. I am happy to say that the number of customers that are on the mailing list increased by over 100 since the last time I emailed. That is great in the long term. The site, however hasn’...

The Latest Update From The American Craftsman Workshop

07-12-2010 07:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

Finally! Well guys, I am finally getting my schedule and projects under control. But I am still busy working 7 days a week to catch up. For the last couple of weeks I have been knocking off work between 10 and 10:30pm. Working from 7am to 10pm sounds like a long day but it is short compared to the previous 3 months that I was working 7am until 1 or 1:30am. There were two instances where I worked from 7am one morning until 11:30 the next night with only about a 1hour nap. I find that ...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #1: Day 1

07-12-2010 05:18 AM by doorslammer | 1 comment »

This week I’m on vacation and taking a chair making class at the Appalachian Center for Craft which is a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University where I got my undergraduate degree in engineering and am currently working on a masters of engineering. Every summer, the craft center offers several, week long workshops in all of their offered mediums. So this year I decided to commit to attending a class and not letting life get in the way. The class is based on a modern dining ch...

My first found wood.....

07-12-2010 04:17 AM by MOJOE | 8 comments »

Some folks are building a home around the corner from me, and knocked down a few trees in the process. I picked up a medium sized crotch and bandsawed it open today. As long as it dosen’t check too bad, I will make this into a small clock for my daughter. Not sure what type of wood it is, but the colors and figure are really nice. I think looking for pieces of wood laying around and sending them through the saw may have just become a new hobby of mine.joe

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #1: step up to the stand

07-12-2010 03:52 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

I wasn’t totally happy with the former workbench, turned lathe stand. So, when we moved, I re-purposed that to be the outfeed table for my table saw, and set about planning a new one for my mini lathe. I had a couple plans that I’d almost made – but would have had to buy or salvage the right pieces. One was a great, and HEAVY, made with plywood and filled with sand. Twice, I almost started that one… but the idea of something lighter with properly splayed legs appeal...
