Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #4: Lesson 1, Part 2 - Knife Sharpening

03-10-2011 06:09 PM by MyChipCarving | 3 comments »

Lesson 1, Part 2 – How to sharpen your chip carving knife As a kid, did you ever grab that old hand saw hanging in your dad’s garage and try to cut a board with it?I know I did! No wonder my dad didn’t do any woodworking. I would’ve be better off taking karate lessons and breaking the board with my fist. A dull tool in the shop leads to burn marks, ratty edges, and wandering cuts. Not only that, but it requires a lot more force on your part which can lead to inju...

Evolution of a Shop #18: Rolling Clamp Cart

03-10-2011 05:56 PM by Cory | 10 comments »

I have recently spent quite a bit of time doing some glue ups for various projects. After walking back and forth across my small garage shop 300 times, I really wanted to build a rolling clamp cart to save me some steps and condense all my glue up supplies to one area. My rolling clamp cart is based on a Woodsmith version I saw on the web and a whole bunch of ideas gathered here and on other sites. I used the old metal base from my HFDC for the bottom and 1/2” plywood for the upper p...

Corner Inlay Table #14: Finally, completion - moving to "Projects"

03-10-2011 05:25 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

During the finishing, I used some white abrasive sheets to clean up the stain edge where the masking tape was. I also had to correct some swirls I actually introduced as part of the sanding between coats of Arm-R-Seal. With that done, the table tops were attached using figure 8’s from Woodcraft. I don’t care for theirs as much as others, because they are not flat on both sides. But they seem to work fine. Here are the final steps to completion Prep: Sande...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #280: Good Days/Busy Days

03-10-2011 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is just after seven AM and already we have both printers humming away happily. For the past couple of days we have been busy printing out catalogs and patterns and other material to take with us for the show. Everything is going pretty smoothly, with one small exception, and we should be finished with the bulk of the printing today. We are having minor trouble with one of the ink systems, as we have after a bit of playing around figured out that we must have used an older bottle of in...

Sweet little MsDebbie (Hammer) blog

03-10-2011 11:49 AM by mafe | 18 comments »

Sweet little MsDebbie – (Hammer)re-handle and then again… It sounds like an old classic ‘Sweet little MsDebbie’, and in a way it is. Few days ago I was having an off day, so as so often I looked at LJ and ended in the midst of an argument there, so I followed the old lesson to count to a million or so before you reply (some people can learn from this, I’m one). So off to the workshop, since I was not so fine I needed a small thing, something that could be done quick and cle...

Taking the Chevalet (no not Chevrolet) for a Test Drive. #3: The Requested Video, Part One.

03-10-2011 06:07 AM by shipwright | 30 comments »

I had two LJ friends over today to do a test drive and we managed to shoot a surprisingly passable video. We started with my digital camera but its battery died so we switched to one of theirs. I was able to find a video editing program downloadable free and managed to clean up the part from my camera but the rest will have to wait a day or so. Anyway this should give you a pretty good idea of how it works. I’m a complete virgin at this video stuff (and the chevalet for that matter) so ...

Where do you get your epiphany?

03-10-2011 05:36 AM by ocwoodworker | 18 comments »

I just came into the house with one of those bubble thoughts you see in cartoons that have only smoking scribble inside it. I just engineered my self into a proverbial corner with my 95% completed project. It was about halfway through my shower when I got my epiphany. I have a solution! It got me thinking… Where do you all get your epiphany?
