Anyone out there from this area? I was thinking of possible future get-togethers, meetings and any other ideas that may arise. There is a 3 day woodworking show at the Eastern States Fairgrounds in january 2010. Here is a link: http://cms.thewoodworkingshows.com/cms/Home/NewEngland18110/tabid/166/Default.aspxWell if anyone is interested lets see what we can get started. Lets start our own chapter!
I needed a small, quick project for Christmas presents. I saw the, I Can Do It, section of Popular Wood working – the fish stick trivet. I had to make some modifications to it – the wife thought the head was to small. I started making just a couple for family It is amazing how many of those things can be cut out of a small cut off. Counted up the trivets – 45 so far. They just kind of multiplied in the night or something. 10 have already been given away without finish R...
I am back to it and with the goal of completing my first fly rod by Christmas – it’s a Christmas present. I am pretty excited about how the rod handle came together. I am working on finishing the handle this week and will be assembling the rods next week. Look for an update next week.

After soaking everything in kerosene, then scrubbing with a small wire brush, scotchbrite pad, and wet dry sand paper I painted the main gear a frame with Rustoleum paint and baked it on in a small toaster oven. I could not see any reason to shine the parts up to like new as I plan on this drill being a user in the shop. I decided not to refinish the handles, they are in pretty good shape. Also did not get a picture putting the bearing back in, I blame not wanting to get my greasy fingers on ...
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the blog boards comes another episode in the misadventures known as Dynablue’s woodworking projects. I’ve got no pictures this time but will post them on the next one. Mainly I hadn’t blogged because there wasn’t much going on with the table that was of really any interest. Gluing up tabletop blanks, sanding, oiling, gluing parts, having nearly ruinous experiences routing bandsaw marks off the edge of the top, etc.....
The final fitting of the tenon in the mortise. Once I achieve the perfect fit it is time to make the Box joint within the mortise. Note that the mortise pocket is about 1/8th in. deeper than normal as is the tenon, I believe this simple modification goes along way to help strengthen this type of joint. With the aid of a simple jig the box joint is made. Accuracy and close tolerance work is the key to a box joint’s strength, A machinists caliper is probably the easy way to se...
The past week has been an exhausting week but I still love it. I spent the early part of the week installing drywall and the latter part mudding & taping. I scoped out a couple more new job prospects and I have enough work to carry me through the next couple of months. I have about 3 more weeks on the present job, and he has some more projects for next year. After that, I have a room remodel job that I have scheduled. So far I haven’t done any advertising other than word-of-mou...
Hey,I’m trying to find where I can buy that awesome desk/toy box combo built by Woody57. We had one for our 5 children 15 years ago and I want to buy three now for my grandchildren. I don’t know what I’m allowed to put on here. But , please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know where I can buy these from a store. I probably couldn’t afford Woody’s. Although, it is beautiful.
In case any of you turners are looking for a chuck to use on your lathe….This one is at a great price…plus it includes 2 jaws and a wood center screw. I have the supernova II on my big lathe…and now one of these on my Jet mini….the jaws are interchangeable and now I don’t have to keep switching chucks and jaws so much….....and the price was better then the grizzly or the PSI chucks….all of which have their plus’s and minus’s…..but m...
