Introduction

2018 days ago by JohnVV | 4 comments »

Just wanted to say a little bit about me and my projects. My old projects are the ones I have done in the last couple years. Living in an apartment in Washington, D.C. does not give you much space for fancy woodwork, not with 2 kids, wife, and her highness, the cat around. But I finally started doing a few things after I said too many times, “Hey, I could do better than that!” I promised a china cabinet for a birthday last year, but that didn’t happen. I am hoping th...

Old Projects #4: Kitchen Jar Rack

2018 days ago by JohnVV | 0 comments »

No pic yet. My wife has these Ball jars that we keep various kitchen staples in. They were cluttering up the counter, so I made this from some scrap wood I had lying around. The experience of making this and the radiator cover using ad hoc set up in the living room made me crazy. It sent me off into deepest, darkest Rockville, MD to find the Woodworker’s club there. since my wife won’t let me set up a table saw in our 2-BR apartment’s living room. Anyway, the rack was...

Old Projects #1: Garbage Shed

2018 days ago by JohnVV | 0 comments »

There’s nothing special about this garbage shed really. But it was the first project I did with the router I got for christmas the year before. Looking through the internet I saw that doing half-laps for an outdoor project was not a great idea, but there’s no need for a router if you are just doing butt joints, so …. The shingles came from a house down the street. They were replacing the siding shingles and I gathered up a bucket of shingles to roof the shed. If we...

Old Projects #2: Tool Chest

2018 days ago by JohnVV | 0 comments »

I made this tool chest from a design out of Woodsmith magazine [link to plansnow]. As my first project in many years, it came out pretty well. As a learning experience it was great. I will never feed from the left on the router table! Remember the zero clearance insert for the table saw when cutting little parts. There were some really wide rabbets that caused me a lot of headaches. After I was done I saw the trick of leaving the stock wide, cut a wide groove, leaving a stable lip on t...

I'm looking for talent to promote my BowlSaw

2018 days ago by Steuss | 4 comments »

Judie Squires of LJ suggested that I search the LJ membership for talent to create an ad for my BowlSaw which will run in LJ. She suggested I offer a free BowlSaw to anyone who would be willing to take the job of designing such an ad. I also would like them to take the tool and video the process of coring a bowl blank to make two bowls. The BowlSaw wouldn’t cover the fees, but I would certainly be willing to pay an additional retainer for this video which could be used on my website....

Massachusetts woodworkers: Division of Fisheries & Wildlife needs your help

2018 days ago by UnstoppableDrew | 0 comments »

Just got this in an email from my wife who works for Mass F&W: You Can Help: Urgent Housing Need for Wood Ducks in Massachusetts There is an immediate housing need in Massachusetts that conservationists can all support! Wood ducks are one of the few kinds of waterfowl that nest in cavities or holes in trees. There are not enough natural cavities available in the state for nesting, but constructed boxes have filled the gap. While wood ducks are still wintering in warm, southern clime...

The Slowest Farm Shop #2: Little Pieces (scary sharp)

2018 days ago by Will Mego | 13 comments »

So just now, I ordered a piece of plate glass from a local company http://www.glassworks.net/I know sharpening is a hot topic, and a lot of people will disagree, but I’ve decided to give the scary sharp method a try. For one thing, the initial cost is pretty low, and it’s sustainable in that cost for me…I’d love to just get a water cooled Tormek like Tommy McDonald uses, but T-Chisel can afford that, I can’t. Anyway, the glass is 24”x12”x1/2”, a...
