New Toy #4: Milling a nice size Elm log

11-16-2009 04:04 AM by alaskan79 | 4 comments »

Hi Well I got all the logs milled. Had 39 total logs and got about 2000 BF of lumber. Of that I have about 600 BF of Hard Maple and about 600 BF of Cherry. The rest is Poplar, White Pine, Elm, Hemlock, and one that I am not sure what it is. My dad thinks it is Ironwood all I know is that it has some real nice fiqure and a little pink hue to it. Still got some logs at my dads that I need to mill. They are White Cedar and some more Hard Maple. Here is a couple pictures of me milling that nic...

I have been busy getting ready for an open house at the craft mall. Starting to get Christmas gifts un the works. I have made more foot stools, and candle holders.

Unorthodox WoodWorking Tools…. ….at some point in my woodworking story,the point was made that i must create beyond,“beyond what” i heard my-self asking again until,“until the dreams you have be-come art” i perceived…. ….so much that i was more at the world’s lost end of my-self,since all my be-ing up until then had be-come as un-perceived,works of art back then all included “other’s” concept for wood,till the responsibility back then was all laid on my shou...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #12: Lining Off - Second Attempt

11-16-2009 02:42 AM by MattD | 4 comments »

I finished lining off the planks today. Lining off is the process with which you project the final plank layout onto the hull. My first attempt at this didn’t go so well. Thanks to some suggestions from some fellow lumberjocks, I took the time to learn more about the process and I’m much happier with the results. The book, Building Small Boats by Greg Rossel, as recommended by DaveR, is an exceptional resource and I basically used the process in the lining off chapter. Results ...

I found a Stanley tool and level Co. # 28 at a flea market but the frog and blade are missing. Any idea where I can find them? The plane is in excellant shape other than the missing parts.

MIL Vase #3: Done and done

11-16-2009 02:16 AM by Zuki | 6 comments »

This morning DW told me that she was heading to her mother’s around noon. So I had a deadline for my most recent client. Two sides attached. View of the inside. When I got to this point I though . . . “I wonder if those arrows will show when I’m finished.” This it the top made from a piece of 1×4 D4S pine. It was ripped, a groove cut along the inside edge for it to fit over the top and a 45 on the outside edge to make it match the base(s). It was at this ...

Router Table #2: Epic Failure

11-15-2009 10:45 PM by baniels | 10 comments »

Got my Microdot Friday. Yay! I had found a good wood filler a few days ago and had filled in and sanded all of the holes. I covered both surfaces with ample adhesive. Waited until they were plenty dry. Just as before, I used dowels to keep the pieces apart as I wined them up. Removed the dowels one by one and pressed on the Formica. I did a preliminary rolling with the J-Roller then flush trimmed the edges of the laminate. Everything was going fine. I spent 10 minutes furiously...

Blockfront dresser7 ogee feet 2

11-15-2009 10:32 PM by TimF | 0 comments »

One of the hardest parts of this dresser, for me, is the front feet. The first dresser I made, I glued a 3/4” backer piece to the foot so I had the thickness I needed. I was given a tip by Alan Breed that he had seen ogee feet mitered at less than 45 degrees so the maker would have enough material to carve. They did it that way to safe material. I decided to try that method. I mitered the blanks at 41 degrees. Also I haven’t put the gussets on the feet yet, it’s easier to c...

The Mortise Pal Tool Review (full length version)

11-15-2009 08:56 PM by Gord Graff | 12 comments »

Hi All, I was encouraged by a number of members here to post the tool review I shot not long ago regarding the Mortise Pal jig. I must warn you, this video tool review is not for the faint at heart, it’s a full 27 minutes long. I can assure you that I didn’t gloss over this jig for the sake of doing a tool review. As always, give the player a minute to load. All the bestGord

A BIG Thanks to SketchUp Guru DaveR!

11-15-2009 08:13 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 14 comments »

A New Skill I have spent more time the last few days in front of the computer than in the shop. I am currently learning SketchUp to use for my design work and presentations. (I have owned the pro version for 2 years.) I have been watching the many online video tutorials for SketchUp, and I like the Missing Manual series of books, so I have the one for SketchUp. There is a lot to absorb and I dived right in. A Timely Offer for a Life Preserver Well, I may have dived right in and...
