Sanding for total absolute beginners. What you shoud know.

10-03-2010 11:03 PM by Stevinmarin | 27 comments »

A lot of us take sanding wood for granted, yet it is the most basic skill we need to know about woodworking. I’ve often quipped that woodworking is 10% design, 10% construction, and 80% sanding. But with all the grades of sandpaper available, it’s something that can easily confuse the beginning woodworker. In this video, I have tried to boil sandpaper down to its basics.

Project #1: Sawhorses #3: Second horse almost done..

10-03-2010 09:38 PM by JamieH | 0 comments »

Well, this one went together 2.5-3 times as fast as the first. Used 2×6 for the top of this one instead of a 2×4. I will switch out the top of the other horse to match. Didnt have enough plywood for the shelf, thats the last bit and it will be complete. I have been using the scrap cut offs to practice the finish I plan on using for my next project…

Do you all do the " OLD SCHOOL" full scale layout ?

10-03-2010 07:29 PM by grosa | 7 comments »

Even with all the technology out there I still do the “OLD SCHOOL” FULL SCALE LAYOUT. For some reason I can’t get away from it. Even if I draw it on Auto Cad I still put more trust in it than anything else. I would really be interested in your comments. Yesterday I was looking around the shop and allot of 4×8 sheets of plywood had full scale drawings on them, AM I GOING NUTS ? Or does anyone else do this ?

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #9: Phillipe

10-03-2010 06:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Phillipe has been competitive all of his young life. From the time he was in play school, he always wanted to have the tallest block castle or be the last one left in the spelling bee. Some found him to be too competitive, but most saw him as someone who was destined to be enterprising and successful. Now he was a teen and on this cold winter day he is bound and determined to build the best snowman ever. Never mind that little snowman on the other side of the pond -HIS snowman would be ...

coopered top tool box

10-03-2010 03:25 PM by mdj | 2 comments »

Hello all. My first post here, and somehow I was able to review some earlier posts (about a yr old) concerning a coopered top tool box. Now of course, I cant find my way back to the discussion. Would anyone have a clue if there are any plans available for the box or similiar to the one shown in the Toolbox Book by Jim Toplin, built by Mark Nels of Atlanta?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #122: Building a Bridge 2

10-03-2010 03:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

”We build too many walls and not enough bridges” – Isaac Newton I had a lot of fun yesterday. I finished my little bridge and even though I had made one previously that went to the magazine, I had learned some things on this site that made the glue up much easier and it went together like clockwork. It was only a couple of months ago when I struggled to make the first one, and it made me feel good to think that I learned so much in such a short time. It went together so...
