The American Craftsman WorkShop #23: A New Site and Blog Start-Up

02-15-2010 12:36 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 11 comments »

I have been a bit homeless and sharing off of other blogger’s platforms. I am starting my own site and blog that is directed to the woodworking community. My current site is static and primarily functions as an online portfolio for my clients. Well, I am actually rehashing what I posted at my new site. You can check it out here:

Sawstop PCS

02-15-2010 12:23 AM by Jon Spelbring | 8 comments »

... is now mine. I just left the Woodworking show. I have been looking at (OK, ogling) them for awhile. Honest, I only went in to man the booth for the St. Louis Woodturners, but…. well, let’s just say that impulse control is not my strong suit. So, anyone in the St. Louis area interested in a Craftsman Hybrid table saw? (it’s the 1 1/2 HP model). I’ll cut you a great deal; I can’t get the Sawstop set up until the Craftsman goes bye-bye. I’ll blog...

Window shelving #5: Not working again. Time to get started

02-14-2010 10:41 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

Well, I got a call on Friday that I was no longer needed at my job. (very disappointing). So now I can get back to the task at hand of building these damn shelves. I visited with Jockmike2 yesterday and may be willing to try his suggestion of using my router to do the dadoes. I am going to do some math before I decide to do that though. I still may be able to use my dado set. Will keep y’all posted. Rick

Hand plane restoring #3: painting and progress

02-14-2010 07:57 PM by jchomme | 6 comments »

Here are some updated pics of my process. I am doing a bunch now and it is a little pretty labor intensive , but well worth it. Have alot of extra time this weekend, so I decided to do my 5’s as well. Progress is pretty good. Now, time to relaxand let dry! Some notes: -I would have taken pictures of taping and masking, but I couldn’t find my camera charger. Anyways, it is pretty straightfoward; tape everything that wasn’t painted. -Also, I roll up pieces of paper...

Table saws aren't the only thing to be careful of...

02-14-2010 05:22 PM by ryno101 | 18 comments »

I was just about to start on the first glue up of the walnut entertainment center I’m working on… well, needless to say, I didn’t end up finishing. One of the tenons was about 1/32” too long, and I was just in that “finish quick and get on to the glue-up” mindset. One inattentive cut, and I ended up with a razor-sharp 3/4” bench chisel through the back side of my thumb. I put this up as a reminder…BE CAREFUL! Whenever I am usin...

Constructing a Modern Sofa Table - The Video

02-14-2010 11:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Share the Love This modern sofa table was built for donation to a charity fundraising auction. This slideshow was played to generate more interest in the table by highlighting the construction process. Generating more interest generates more money for the charity. The auction was a bit disappointing overall, but my table brought in the more money than anything else. Funds raised at the auction help support programs for people with developmental disabilities. The winning bidder ask...
