Consignment shop for wood workers.

01-22-2011 12:54 AM by 58j35bonanza | 15 comments »

I have toyed with an idea for some time now and was wanting some feedback on this idea. I’m sure it’s not original but haven’t seen one either. My idea is to have a consignment shop for woodworkers to sell their work.It would be an outlet for woodworkers to sell items for a percentage of the sale. This would be a store where woodworkers could drop of their projects and have them sold. Tell me your thoughts on this?

bandsaw help

01-22-2011 12:51 AM by jat | 6 comments »

How about some opinions concerning the Powermatic 14” vs. the Grizzly G0555x. From what I’ve read, it seems these are 2 of the best 14” models out there. I’m looking for some thoughts and recommendations. I’ve never had a bandsaw and I’m still pretty new to woodworking (which is my hobby and I love it). I’m told the Powermatic has gone down a bit in quality recently but that Grizzly is a very reliable machine and may be the best value for the pr...

First Commission #1: Entertainment Center

01-22-2011 12:04 AM by jmichaeldesign | 3 comments »

So life forced a break from woodworking. I finished college a few years ago at Kendall College of Art and Design with a degree in Furniture Design and Woodworking. After that I moved across the country and a worked for a couple different non-profits for a couple years during which time I also met and married my wife. We started looking for a new apartment for a few reasons, one of which was to find one with a garage that I could work in. I had worked in a cabinet/custom furnitu...

Eagle America Holiday Bowl

01-21-2011 07:38 PM by Wilt191 | 1 comment »

This project was a gift. The woods chosen were 2 pieces of maple with a piece of cherry laminated in between. The project was created using a template from Eagle America. After the glue up, the template was set on top of the wood blank and the pattern traced onto the wood. I then used a forstner bit to clear out the majority of the wood inside the pattern and getting as close to the line as possible. I elected to use the depth stop set at 5/8 of an inch to leave a strong bottom. Afte...

Frustating Night in the Shop

01-21-2011 07:13 PM by jjwoodshop | 3 comments »

Wow…. So last night became such a frustrating experience out in the shop. There are seldom times I can say that, because just getting out there is usually so relaxing and just a welcome escape to tinker. But last night, man was that an exception. It started off with my end grain cutting board, after cutting the initial glue up in strips and turning and arranging, it took the board out of proportion, made it smaller than i wanted, and i wasnt thrilled with the way the pattern lined...

New Basement Workshop Pics #2: Table Saw Assembled. Next: dust collection & shelving.

01-21-2011 07:04 PM by shimster | 1 comment »

I don’t know what took more time, digging out my basement, or assembling the Ridgid R4511. No, honestly, it wasn’t too bad. Just time consuming, and as stated numerous times, the instructions leave a LOT to be desired. I’m very happy with the ‘fit & finish’ of the saw. The tool has an unspeakable amount of engineering for the price I paid. Very nice saw. Next purchase will be a Forrest blade and a cyclone dust collector. I’m going with the ‘...
