My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #143: That Odd Feeling of Being "Caught Up"

10-24-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I think everything is running normally now. At least I hope so. I was happy to say that I woke up this morning and was able to access my site by typing in the normal address. (I had to clear the cache in my browser, but it worked right away when I did) I had a couple of orders yesterday too, so it appears that all the mechanics of the site are functioning properly. It will probably take a day or so for the servers to catch up with the domain change but everyone should be able to access th...

Wheelchair Woodworking #1: Woodturning with a Disability

10-24-2010 01:12 PM by Jamie Speirs | 15 comments »

WOODTURNING from the Wheelchair(just a copy and paste from ) Woodturning is one of the crafts that lends itself towards most disabilities. It can be done in a fairly small area with relatively inexpensive equipment. It is not overly strenuous and can be quick to show results; hence it’s mass popularity. The object of this is not to go into any great detail about woodturing itself, rather on guidelines on what look for in a course or in a tutor. Red Pine Three T...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #8: The saw is in one piece and running.......

At this point I would like to add screw up number four to the list. I managed to lose an E-clip that holds the vertical adjustment worm gear in place. I went to a few auto parts places and none of them had the clips. I wound up at the local ACE hardware which had the exact part in stock. With the part in hand, completing the assembly was pretty easy. Let me note here that before putting the arbor assembly on the cradle, please make sure the pulley fits. The replacement pulleys that I ...

Congratulations Jimthecarver.

10-24-2010 06:47 AM by CSlabon | 6 comments »

I just wanted to post a quick shout to my good friend Jimthecarver. Heard the results of the Tustin, Ca. woodcarving show sponsored by the California Carvers Guild. And Jim won blue ribbons on both of the projects he entered and a best of show on one of them. Besides being an excellent woodcarver he’s also a very humble man, but I’d just like to applaud his efforts (and maybe make him blush a little:). Congrats man!

Extremely Average #282: A Better Dovetail

10-24-2010 05:00 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello All, If you recall, two night’s ago, I cut a rather sad and pathetic dovetail. Tonight I improved! I am stoked. Do woodworkers get stoked? Or is it just survers and fires? I don’t know, but I digress. Brian

10-24-2010 02:23 AM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Just a little over half way done. These 13 pictures are the next stages on how to carve “Green Man” He is a little scary. I like him that way. I makes it fun for Halloween. The next steps will include carving the leaves and final shaping up the face, and under cutting the leaves. Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking to you.

10-24-2010 01:24 AM by Roger | 12 comments »

I just bought myself a new spindle sander today. Been lookin at these for a while. Got a Central Machinery from Harbor Freight. Comes with 6 different sized sanding spindles. Very nice machine. 15”x16” or somethin like that, with a cast iron top. yup, cast iron. Weighs bout 33lbs. Pretty stout. Caught it on sale for $129.99 (origial price is 150) – a 20% coupon = 103.00. I used it on some wavey door fronts on a few JB’s I’m workin on, and it works freekin grrrrrr...
