Just for Fun... #36: Well, not exactly...

11-18-2010 01:05 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

No Fun here!! This is all Business!!Being the resident Handyman (and Box Maker) at the Restaurant, it was inquired of me whether I thought I could make a sort of “Suggestion” box, so the customers could offer up any comments or criticism…The Requirements are that it has to be wall-hung, that it needs to lock, and that it needs to be large enough to fit a certain sized comment card… I requested some 3/8” Walnut from the Owner (or any Exotic that caught her eye) an...

Wheelchair Woodworking #2: Time to move on.

11-18-2010 12:59 AM by Jamie Speirs | 17 comments »

I write this with a heavy heart.I thought twice about sharing this, but then I realised that it is important to share the sad with the glad. About ten years ago I was approached by the local Authority to see if I could take a young man with a Learning Disability.I never promise that they can do woodwork until I have interviewed the person. When I have the interview all my other “Jolly Rogues” will be around at a distance appearing busy. We have a close knit wee team and it is i...

Something that I’ve always wanted to do is make a musical instrument.I would alo like to be able like to play the instrument that I make.My final inspiration came from seeing Jon’s wonderful Dulcimer. It to me looked absolutely wonderful and a perfect Dulcimer.Next step was to find out more about them.I on;y learned ho to pronounce the name after Jon & Gordon (two of my Jolly Rouges) said it half a dozen times.Although the Appalachian dulcimer appeared in regions domina...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

Evolution #5: Seeking outside influences

11-17-2010 06:40 PM by StevenAntonucci | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but I am back. If you want to be a great woodworker, you need to learn to find outside influences. It is certain that we all start by developing tool skills and following plans, but somewhere along the way, we want to develop our own style. How can you do this? The best answer to this question is to stop looking at other woodworkers and seek outside influences! It may sound counter-intuitive, but all great artisans have to develop the...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #3: Tilting Bandsaw Miter Sled

11-17-2010 06:07 PM by Bob Simmons | 13 comments »

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” ...Nelson Mandela, first black president of South Africa & Nobel Prize recipient .(1918- ) The idea of the tilting bandsaw miter sled came to me while working on creating a variety of wood inlay banding patterns for various wood projects to be built. Sometimes my choice is to cut inlay segments by using the dedicated miter sled for the table saw and for those operations the ...

A journey into the workshop. #76: Replacement filters for the Grizz air cleaner. I hope I didn't make a mistake.

11-17-2010 06:07 PM by dbhost | 11 comments »

In the short time I have had the Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter, I have managed to get the original filter in a state of nastiness that just screams of things to come. I needed to seriously start looking for replacement filters… Now Grizzly offers stock replacements, but one of the fusses I have with the G0572, and the Grizzly replacements is the lack of a washable pre-filter. I mean what sense is it that the secondary filter is washable, but the primary isn’t? And worse, the...

Scoop Carving #2: Starting to shape the scoop

11-17-2010 05:56 PM by Rustic | 6 comments »

Now that we have the rough out, we can begin to shape the scoop. Don’t mind the hole in the scoop this piece is for reference only after we have the general shape that we want I took it over to the drill press and bored a 5/8ths inch hole to my desired depth Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, was just trying to get the best shot of the hole.The plan calls for a 1/4 inch #5 spoon gouge to carve the hole. (I don’t have one yet, so I used my dremel) This is ...

My Journey Into Woodworking #8: talking to myself

11-17-2010 05:39 PM by Steve | 2 comments »

Some times I’m a bit, well, shall we say slow. I started my blog thinking a new series entry for each year. Just today I realized that as I’ve been commenting on my entry for this year, instead of just making a new entry, I’ve basically been talking to myself. Like I said, a bit slow some times. Oh well. Now that I’ve figured it out I guess it won’t look like I wanted but will at least I won’t be talking to myself. :D With no way to delete the old c...
