The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #2: Bandsaw Crosscut Sled

11-15-2010 09:42 PM by Bob Simmons | 17 comments »

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. Charles Darwin…(1809 -1948) English Naturalist Sometimes as woodworkers we face a variety of situations that require some versatility and a little thought. This occurred to me one day while making wood inlay bandings in the woodworking shop. There are times that I feel quite comfortable making crosscuts on the 10 inch table saw using one of my cross cut sleds. Howe...

132 - Advent Calendar Pt. 2

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the second part of this three-part series, I continue with the construction of the main grid-work. I show you a cool trick for cutting small dowel pieces and then the assembly begins. For small parts like this, I actually have a cool method glue-up that involves the use of two different glues. I then cut the triangle shape using a circular saw and a guide, which works surprisingly well. Finally, I add the mite...

Jet Bandsaw #1: Bandsaw Update #2 (pics fixed!)

11-15-2010 06:21 PM by Crushgroovin | 2 comments »

I finally recieved most of the needed parts for restoring the ancient Jet Bandsaw I picked up. I found a fantastic guy on eBay who was a wealth of knowledge and provides amazing service to his customers. His eBay ID is machacc and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for Machinery Parts, Tool Accessories, Router Bits, or Incra products. I don’t know much about him other than he was very helpful when I inquired about different parts, he sells at a competitive price, and ships ...

The Nightstands Build #5: The Nightstand Tops and how I messed them up

11-15-2010 02:59 PM by Eric_S | 12 comments »

So I was super confident that I’d finish the stands this weekend(minus final sanding and finish). Well now I’m not so sure :( I had fitted the drawers. They have a little bit more gap around the sides than I’d like but aren’t anything to be concerned over. So anyways, things with the tops started out smoothly. First, here is how I glued up the veneers without a veneer press using Cold Press Veneer Glue. I cut two templates that are the same size as the panel be...

The November Artisan's Fair

11-15-2010 02:04 PM by ellen35 | 19 comments »

This past weekend, I was a vendor at a wonderful Artisan’s Fair held at a local organic farm called Coonamesset Farm in Falmouth MA. This Artisan’s Fair has been a November staple for many years and the foot traffic is incredible for this venue. After reading some of the posts on craft fairs, I found that most people were pretty great! Those that didn’t buy were very complimentary about my work… even a few woodworkers were there ohhing and aahing! that was the best...

Concrete Countertop Series #1: 1st Entry

11-15-2010 01:41 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 15 comments »

After two years of pondering, I finally started a concrete counter-top. This will be going in a master bathroom. I have the mold construction complete. Next step is to radius off the corners and fill the small voids using caulk and/or bondo. I’m ordering a new product from Lowes by Quikrete called “Countertop Mix”. ( I’ll need two 80lb bags costing about $11 each. I calculated the finished weight to be a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #165: Time - My Unexpected Friend

11-15-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Time is not always my friend, but it can be if I allow it. I think that there are instances when we can use time to our advantage. Sometimes by just doing nothing. Although I wasn’t on a rampage or anything near as drastic yesterday, I suppose I was quite disappointed. I think that is the best way to describe my feelings. I felt quite blind sided by what happened and it came at a time when I was questioning my own creativity and just after I had spent a week focusing on getting e...

Work in Progress #2: Segmented Abstract Model - Staining Day

11-15-2010 06:17 AM by darryl | 5 comments »

I spent some time sanding and staining my Segmented Abstract Model today. This wasn’t my initial idea for a stain, but the first idea I had didn’t work how I wanted it to. I’m liking the look so far. comments and critiques always welcome.
