Quick Tip - Extending knife blade life

10-10-2010 07:32 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

I use an Xacto Knife for veneer and fine cutting. The tip of the replacement blade wears out all too quickly This is the problem drawn for clarity The top two drawings show a side and top view of a new blade. The middle two show a worn blade (exaggerated). The fine point is now a larger flat (or more accurately rounded) point and will also be burred over slightly (not shown) making it even duller. What I do to restore the point is grind the back of the blade off, at a slight ang...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #129: Moving Right Along

10-10-2010 01:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I made good headway yesterday. Although I still have some of the pattern packet writing to do, I did get through much of it and I also got some other important things completed. I finished drawing and cutting the charm pieces for my Wright Inspired candle tray. I think the charms are as cool as the tray itself. They would make key chain tags or even a necklace. I found a piece of thin walnut that was as dark as the tray and it looked pretty nice. It took me only about half an hour to cut...

Setting up new shop #1: Transforming the dungeon

10-10-2010 09:28 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

Haven’t been on the site much lately. In August I moved from Hawaii to the San Francisco area, left the active duty Army, traveled across the country, and started a new job. My wife and I like the new place and the area, but my only complaint so far is that I don’t have a garage to set up shop in. The only thing I have to work with is this old dungeon of a cellar. It doesn’t extend under the whole house unfortunately and for some reason the landlord has a ton of old real...

Extremely Average #273: A Drubbing

10-10-2010 05:57 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, Still waiting on my computer. Today my father and I went to the ISU vs. Utah game. My post tonight is entitled ‘A Drubbing’. I took a bunch of pictures with my iphone and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I know a lot of you are only interested in my woodworking posts, but I will say, there are CHEERLEADERS in one photo. Not that that would sway you. :-) Brian

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #1: Getting started

10-10-2010 03:57 AM by bohnsai | 2 comments »

I figured I’d start a blog about a project from start to finish so other readers can follow my progress and hopefully learn from my inevitable mistakes in the process ;-) I also wanted to show readers how to make complex furniture with limited tools and space. So a little about the project: I sold my crappy yet still somewhat pricey plywood and veneer coffee table/end tables a little while ago on Craigslist and have been desperately needing to fill the void. My eventual goal is to...

A Special Unicorn Project #9: Approaching The Finish Line

10-10-2010 03:05 AM by William | 11 comments »

Well I got up yesterday determined to get the rocker details finished. I went to the shop, started up my music, got the coffee pot brewing, laid out my patterns, just about the time my wife walked in the shop. One of my son’s truck had broke down and I had to go help him get it going. I done that, went back to the shop, started another pot of coffee since the first one had gotten cold. Before I could even fix the first cup, word came that something else was wrong with his truck. I had t...

Work(shop) in Progress #15: I got it, I got it, I got it.... I ain't got it - fixing the DW735 planer rollers

10-10-2010 02:46 AM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

As mentioned in a previous post, I was in the midst of planing quite a bit of hard maple, when my planer decided it was not hungry anymore, and would not feed the lumber under any circumstance – I tried the “here comes an airplane”... no go. I tried the “I’ll get you ice cream if you finish all the lumber” – nope. I tried “I’ll tell mama you didn’t finish your wood” – nada. So I decided to play doctor and open it up an...
