My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #312: Ready for Cutting

04-17-2011 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Just when I thought I was in the clear from this cold, it seems to have reared its ugly head again. Yesterday. around mid afternoon, I began to get pain in my head. It felt like it was in my sinuses, but I barely felt stuffy. By 9pm, I needed to take some medicine for it because it was really getting to me and not subsiding. I awoke in the middle of the night, again stuffed to the point where I couldn’t breath and had to take another dose. This morning my nose is clear, but I still...

Tonight I found out that Duane had been called to be with the Lord on March 10 2011. I had talked to Duane several times and I have a Cross he made in my shop. He was a good man and I am glad to have known him. I send my condolences to his family

8 year old granddaughter in the shop

04-17-2011 06:37 AM by Bearpie | 20 comments »

My younger daughter and family came to visit and stay a few days. I thought about what to do to keep them busy and occupied. I sent a PM to Sheila (Scrollgirl) asking for a suggestion appropriate for an 8 year old girl. I racked my mind and the internet searching for a project simple and interesting enough to keep her interest. Sheila answered in a few days as she was on her “Odyssey” for 3 weeks and included a lovely pattern of a bunny bowl to be cut on a scrollsaw. Since Easter ...

Hand Tools #4: Cleaning up my old planes (with Pics)

04-17-2011 05:27 AM by MikeGCNY | 6 comments »

I spent the day building face frames for my daughters bedroom built ins and also took some time to disassemble some of my old planes and give them all a bath in Evapo-Rust. I soaked all of the components with the exception of the knob and tote. I am not restoring these planes to be placed on a shelf or sold. I am restoring them so that they are more usable. The methodology I have employed is as follows: 1. Disassemble all of the components that easily come apart.2. Scrub everything (...

Custom Coffee Table (wedding present) #3: Both side frames complete

04-17-2011 05:12 AM by JasonD | 0 comments »

Today was the first day that I haven’t had any shoulder pain in over a month. So, I took advantage of it and got a lot of shop time in. I got the second side frame complete and got the long top and bottom stretchers rough milled. I’m hoping to get the joinery completed for the long stretchers tomorrow and have the frame 100% complete. Then, all that I’ll have left is the top and the dove-tailed center drawer. Here’s a picture of the two completed side frames: ...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #4: Building better boxes

04-17-2011 04:13 AM by RGtools | 2 comments »

I needed a way to practice making dovetailed drawers without the pressure of it being in a full scale piece of furniture. Having done a few practice dovetails that did not go into anything I wanted to start making things that actually provided some use. So my goal was to make these boxes for storing seed (my wife has an impressive collection of seed she saves for the garden). The first one made of teak was not an impressive piece, I made numerous mistakes, cut on the wrong side of the l...

Drum Sander Happy Dance-TA DOT-TA DOT-TADOO!!!!

04-17-2011 04:05 AM by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

I have been wanting a drum sander for 4 years. Yesterday, my drum sander was delivered, my boss was unhappy because I had to show up for work late…but that’s okay because I got my drum sander! This is not a review of the machine, because I feel that it takes several months of ownership to form an opinion on a machinethat cost this much. Later for the review. I had chosen the Grizzly 458 because the machines had weight and birth. I figured that Grizzly’s construction wa...

Hand Planes #1: Love and Loathing

04-17-2011 01:33 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 14 comments »

I read a lot about how much everyone loves their handplanes and how relaxing it is. I love the idea of using a handplane to remove mill marks or smooth over edges. I love what I see others on TV do with handplanes and how smoothly they work. I loath that I have yet to get a hand plane to work like I’ve seen them work on TV. I mentioned in one of my projects that I don’t own a hand plane. That was partially true, I picked one up at Lowes a 25$ stanley block plane when I first st...
