Double lacewood rocking chair #7: Making a rocker, rock!

07-18-2010 02:19 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

We start off with the rockers in there raw form 1/8’’ strips glue up to create the shape of the rocker. We mark where the legs sit, and use our curve template to create our fair curve. Cut out on the band saw, and sand. Next cut the rear of the rocker to add a little shape, the rocker will tell you how it wants to be shaped back there. Next round over top edges of rocker. Wax the ends of the back braces with melted wax place in the hole before it’s hard and jiggl...

Found a new friend

Awhile back I had asked if their was anything to do concerning woodworking in the Myrtle Beach area, that’s where the family went on vacation, and Huff said I would be welcome in his shop and to stop by. After talking to him some more and trying to find the time in between activity’s I was able to meet Huff and let me tell you he is the real deal, not that anyone on here is not, but Huff showed the wife and I two of his projects that he has underway and they are beautiful. I wa...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2:

07-18-2010 12:10 AM by fineamerican | 4 comments »

The new saw bench is working out great. Very strudy, with no side to side wobbling. The saw Im using was given to me by a friend. Its a old Disston with one missing tooth. It cuts very straight, and very quick to my surprise. The ends of my cuts are farily square, for someone who doesnt have alot of time behind one of these. I think this bench will be a great exercise in using these larger hand saws. From the look on my face one could gather that hand tools can replace a membership to a gym ;...

Table Saw gloat

07-17-2010 10:52 PM by tworedballs | 2 comments »

So, I know this is the project’s section ,but I HAD to share this to let everyone know where to go to get the best deals on woodworking equipment… Search CraigsList for AUCTIONS!!! I went to my first auction today and it was a cabinet shop in Orlando that was changing their market strategy, so they needed to liquidate the countertop (laminate/formica) division of their mfg. process. I picked up a Powermatic 64A with Accufence (60”?) and extension table for $100. A Powerma...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #1: My 21st Century Revisited

07-17-2010 08:14 PM by fineamerican | 3 comments »

My first attempt at recording my thoughts, hopes and wishes on a work bench have changed and today Ive begun to bring forth my ideas into my shop. One of the things about woodworking as you may have found out for yourself, is sometimes in order to accomplish one goal, along the way your faced with sub tasks if you will that must be completed before the main goal can be reached. For me that was a saw bench. You may wonder why I need a saw bench to build my work bench and the answer is this. My...

The New Workbench Journey #3: Knock-down Bench Idea

07-17-2010 07:16 PM by DrJosh | 1 comment »

Looking back at some old issues of Popular Woodworking magazine, I found an article by Megan Fitzpatrick and Christopher Schwarz where they built a Roubo-style bench out of LVL material. The article was very good, but because I’m not planning on building a Roubo bench, the thing that caught my attention was the fact that they made the bench a “knock-down” bench with half-lap joints and carriage bolts. This is a very interesting thought and I’m now thinking of how I mig...
