mortising chisel help

11-13-2010 04:27 PM by CAT | 2 comments »

I have inherited some of my father-in-laws tools and have a Delta Mortising attachment. I do not have the correct size chisels to match to the Delta set. Need help finding the correct size equipmen (chisels) How do I size the attachment set and where are good places to look for the correct mortising bit and chisel?

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #9: There goes several months of work

11-13-2010 03:05 PM by yellowtruck75 | 29 comments »

Well yesterday (Friday) I had off work so I figured I would spend the entire day in the shop finishing up my niece’s rocker. While moving her chair I knocked it into my bench which caused my Padauk chair to shift and fall off the bench. I froze and watched in horror as months of work went down the tubes. It took me several months to get to this moment just to see it all get ruined. I have assessed the damage and there is no way to fix it. The only thing I can do now is salvage the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #163: Trying to Find Focus

11-13-2010 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Many times when coming off finishing a long term or large project, I find myself feeling lost for a couple of days. I am going through that unsettled feeling right now. It is as if you are still wanting to work at that feverish pace that you were at and can’t find the right thing to focus on. It seemed to me yesterday that I was all over the board. I re-read the pattern for the skating pond and my friend who proof reads for me found 3 little typos in it. That wasn’t a big ...

Don't come across trucks like this too often.

11-13-2010 09:27 AM by ND2ELK | 23 comments »

I guess you can consider this a needed tool for a cabinet builder. My step daughters van died and she needed a way to get to work. I gave her my 1995 Dodge Dakota and that left my wife and I with just the car. I bought this 1990 Ford, F-150, XLT Lariat, V8 5.0, 2 WD, Automatic, AC, Power everything with 31,500 miles on it. An old man bouhgt it new in 1990 and died in 1991. The family kept it in the garage for 21 years and just used it to run errands with. They kept it serviced and maintained ...

Extremely Average #290: Good Day in the Shop

11-13-2010 05:45 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Though my last attempt, at a half blind dovetail, was a miserable failure, I decided to try one with two tails today. This seemed like the next step in my education, so I took it. I am thrilled with how it turned out. So were my tools. Good Day in the Shop – Extremely Average Brian

A Special Unicorn Project #13: Have I Mentioned I Hate Painting?

11-13-2010 05:31 AM by William | 1 comment »

I know I have said this multiple times in the past, but I hate painting. I don’t mind stain so much, but for some reason I hate painting. Also, I think that painting this was worse just knowing that this big purple cabinet is going into my bedroom.Anyway, putting three coats of paint on all of this took all day of a very long day. I probably could have done it without taking all day, but in between coats on different parts, I found something (anything) to do as an excuse not to get righ...

Light at the end of the tunnel

11-13-2010 04:37 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Yes, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not a freight train. I was able to make really good progress on the router table/outfeed extension today. Here’s how it looks so far; I appologize for the quality of the picture, I had to use my phone. By adding this I now have 21” more width and an additional 9” of outfeed. You can see the rough cut out where the router will go. Having reached this point I can now start planning for the cabinet tha...

Shipyard Memories #2: The Smaug Blog: Wood Boatbuilding 101, Backbone and Framing

11-13-2010 03:49 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

Besides the yellow cedar which will be used for planking, deck framing and various timbers and knees, an assortment of other woods and materials have been gathered together from their various sources and the actual building can now begin. The traditional “laying of the keel” was not however, the first step. In this case the main body of the keel will be the lead ballast casting which we will come to much later so for now the backbone setup will consist of the erection of the stem...

Outdoor (Insulated) Generator Box Build

11-13-2010 03:38 AM by MayflowerDescendant | 13 comments »

When my wife and I relocated from Southern Ontario to the West Coast of British Columbia, we (by-and-large) left cold and snowy winters behind us. While it was easy to adjust to a more temperate, albeit wetter, climate, the occasional coastal windstorm (with winds up to 100 km’s/hour or 60 mph) can easily disrupt your hydro / power supply. Even though the power lines in our area are all underground, we are “fed” from areas where the power lines are above ground. Trees / l...
