My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #125: My Own Self-Challenge

10-06-2010 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am really excited again. Already I know that it is going to be a great day. I got up early again (well – maybe I should say earlier) because I can’t wait to get things rolling today. It is a good reason and a wonderful way to start the day. I have already read through all of my mail and it is still pitch dark out, but that is OK. By the time I am done here and showered and done my morning clean up it will be late enough to get going. Besides, we are having the roof redone a...

New Photos of Freestanding Cabinet!

10-06-2010 07:34 AM by Blake | 6 comments »

I have spent the last few weeks sanding and finishing my Freestanding Cabinet. I sanded the cabinet to 500 grit inside and out, and up to 1500 grit on the top, sides and door panels. Then I layered on 6 coats of hand-rubbed Formby’s low-gloss tung oil & varnish, and then I polished it with 3 coats of wax. Then I was able to get to a friends photography studio and shoot some better photos. I took the photos myself but she was nice enough to lend me the space, the backdrop, and the profe...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #1: Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920

10-06-2010 05:52 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 4 comments »

I don’t normally blog, but I figured this would be a project worth writing about. Over the past few months I’ve been downsizing my shop since I had the epiphany that I had too many large tools. I found that you can’t use your shop if you can’t get in it. Aside from that, I could use the extra money from selling a few of these. With this in mind, I’ve sold my Ridgid jointer, traded my big drill press to a friend (he needed it a lot more than me), and I’v...

An easy scrap wood project : toast tongs

10-06-2010 04:08 AM by smgaines | 2 comments »

When I go to the lumber yard I’m always amazed at the price of wood. When I finish a project and look at my scrap pile I think to myself that’s probably 50 bucks right there, and being cheap I can never make myself throw any of it away except for the smallest pieces. With scrap lumber piling around the shop I’m always looking for projects to use my scrap on. I had some long skinny pieces of cherry sitting in the shop that were about 3/4″ thick by 7/8″ wide by 4 foot long. I decided that ...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...
