Torque WorkCentre #1: It's been a long journey....

07-02-2010 04:57 PM by dustbunny | 21 comments »

From Queensland Austalia, over 9000 miles in about 7 weeks on an ocean freighter, the Torque WorkCentres have arrived at my home in Connecticut. I have been pacing the shop the whole time, waiting anxiously for it’s arrival, imagining and dreaming about projects I can do with this machine.Yesterday afternoon the tractor trailer pulled up to the end of my 600 ft long driveway and the driver unloaded all 880 lbs of two machines. He was kind and escorted the boxes to my shop front on the p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #29: Subliminal Meanings in Scrollsawing

07-02-2010 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As those of you who read this regularly know, yesterday left off with me anxiously waiting for that magic ‘decent’ hour to roll along so that I could get at cutting out my new project. After writing, I did all my morning chores and prepared the wood which I was going to use. I found a beautiful piece of ash that I really liked. Some people don’t like ash because of the difficulties it can present when scrolling. It is sometimes subject to breaking, as the grain can go pre...

Bandsaw Box #1: What the wife wants, the wife gets.

07-02-2010 10:41 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...

07-02-2010 07:22 AM by woodpick | 1 comment »

I’m building a cupola to go on the top of my greenhouse to aid in ventilation. I really like the plans I found at If you want to read a little bit of humor about my cupola, click on the picture. Has anyone had any experience in covering the roof of a cupola with copper or aluminum sheeting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Extremely Average #181: Tiny Box Progress

07-02-2010 05:13 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, Tonight I continued on my quest to build a tiny box. This probably seems like a trival matter to the seasoned folks here at LJ, but for a novice, it can be a bit challenging. My first two attempts ended with slight misalignment. So I am into my 3rd shot and having learned from the 1st two, seem to be doing better. I am almost up to the point where I went awry last time and I think the wood is in better shape and should be ok after I cut the pieces. ...

Naphtha and Shop Cleanup

07-02-2010 02:14 AM by AnthonyC | 7 comments »

I was getting the shipping gunk off of my OSS (had it two years and never used it) using some Naphtha and a rag. It was going well, and I remembered hearing that Naphtha was good at cleaning planer rollers, so I figured it should be good for any of those foam grippy things we have around the shop. So a quick wipe of my jointer push blocks and my Grripper and they are all like new again. It was amazing how much extra grip was lost from a thin coating of dust. So I’m leaving the N...
