Wood Art #11: Making a Jarvi Bench, with Mike Jarvi

09-13-2010 12:50 PM by Gary Fixler | 24 comments »

A friend sent this to me, and it is simply a joy to watch. I didn’t even realize it was almost 16 minutes long! It’s a lot of fun, and for me, it had a lot of “Now what on earth is he doing here?” moments that were followed up by “Oh! Brilliant!” resolutions. I like that in my process videos :) This guy has some serious tools and space, relative to me, and works magics with a Wood-Mizer bandmill. I have most of that stuff in half or quarter the scale (but n...

I’m making turned wooden coasters for Christmas presents and having a real problem cutting sheet cork for the inside bottoms. Hobby Lobby sells 3 1/2” pre-cut cork disks but I need smaller ones like 3”. I’ve tried cutting with scissors and with a new X-Acto blades and they seem to always tear before I get a circle cut completely. You can buy smaller cork cutting punches but not in 3” size that I can find. Any ideas? HELP!

The Woodshop - A Creative Maelstrom

09-13-2010 06:36 AM by wichle | 4 comments »

I posted a look at my shop tonight and found as I sorted out pictures to find 6 appropriate views that my shop has changed over the past few months. I added dust collection to my miter saw. I moved my router table from one wall to another. I moved tools stored on the walls from one spot to another. I put some tools here to fore in the tool box on the wall. Looking at the pictures gave me some more ideas to “streamline” my small basement shop. When I check in nightly to read posted LJ...

The garage is now official called the workshop.

09-13-2010 06:03 AM by DavidH | 12 comments »

Living in South Texas we don’t have basements; my wife and I are fortunate to own our own house, and I am fortunate enough that our garage is dedicated to being a workshop, although this didn’t come about until recently.Up until now the garage was just that it held everything that wasn’t really fit to be inside the house along with all of my woodworking tools etc. However, I’ve moved all of those non-woodworking (at least a majority) of them to a shed in our back yard...

bandsaw #6: Timberwolf 3tpi beast

More putzing about with the G0555P Grizzly Polar Bear. Installed a Grizzly resaw fence that came separate from my initial orderInstalled Timberwolf 1/2” 3 tpi bladeCleaned her up and fiddled with the blade tension, centering, cleaned the wheels and adjusted the tracking. Saw was good before, but now it is a beast!! I cut a small pine log with the original blade; there was smoking like crazy and barreling the whole way along…the wood was warped and pretty much useless. With ...

Hallway seat with drawer storage

09-13-2010 04:01 AM by jsquared | 2 comments »

I have undertaken my first solo project without having someone around watching that knows more about making stuff than me – the garage was empty except for me. My wife had requested, about 1 year ago, that I make this bench for the hallway leading to the laundry room that would be a place where we can sit, take off our shoes and have a place to store them. Since I was slow to act, she bought a wicker basket that shoes get thrown in. Finally, I started on this project over Labor day week...

Dovetail Drawers

09-13-2010 02:55 AM by dustbunny | 14 comments »

In the process of building my Torque cabinet, I decided to try some dovetail drawers for the first time.I figure even if I screw them up…they are for me, so no cares about messing them up. Back up the story, last February my husband bought me the Woodline Ultimate Joinery Deluxe Combo System when we were at the Woodworking show in Springfield MA. This is the set hereThey had a show special and the system came with nine template sets, six were a bonus, and the show price was I think $...
