A Hand Dovetailed Black Walnut Jewelry Box

11-07-2010 10:42 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.Albert Einstein, Theoretical physicist…1879 – 1955. One weekend a while back while in the shop I came across a few pieces of scrap black walnut that had some beautiful grain patterns. Before long I began to think about how I could maximize the amount of material that was available. The walnut was just over 3/4” thick and the next thing I knew I was ripping the wood to a thickness of about 7/16” ...

Another OWWM Project

11-07-2010 10:12 PM by davidroberts | 9 comments »

Yesterday I had the opportunity to purchase this DeWalt RAS, model MBF-223, serial# 212800. From the serial registry on the OWWM mothership, the saw was born in January 1957. The machine is considered a bit underpowered with the original 3/4hp motor, however, it was marketed to the DIY and handyman of the 1950s, not for heavy commerical use (as in cutting 8/4 or larger hardwood all day long). A 9” blade will fit on the machine, however an 8” blade works better. I have lusted ...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #1: The Beginning - With help from Darrell Peart

11-07-2010 09:35 PM by Don | 8 comments »

I’ve been an admirer of Greene and Greene style of furniture for a long time. I love the soft edges and exposed joinery and I think Greene and Greene were masters at proportions which is where I feel I am the weakest when it comes to design. I’ve been wanting to take my woodworking up a notch and try something a little more challenging than the stuff I’ve been doing and improve my design skills so I’d been looking for an appropriate project. When I read Darrell Peart’s articles in Woodworking...

Using the Dadowiz for sturdy shelves

One of the most difficult operations in my shop has been lining up dadoes consistently through two boards.The most,common operation for this is to make book shelves that must bear considerable weight without warping.The example shown here shows how I would go about ensuring my accuracy and controlling the depth of cut using a device called Dadowiz. for more information on this technique please see my bloghere:

What I have learned

11-07-2010 04:20 PM by mrg | 2 comments »

I few days ago I started to make a cutting board. While cutting the materials for said cutting board I had found that while cross cutting my pieces that they would cut fine and then scrape the back of the blade. Check blade to miter and exactly the same front and back. OK change my reference point for bottom and side against my incra miter gauge. Ok cuts a straight cut. Wait not so fast. Readjust miter gauge, get rid of play in miter slot, resquare the fence to tab and off to the races. Gl...

Facing a new adventure #2: Another week under our belts

11-07-2010 04:17 PM by NH_Hermit | 1 comment »

Today marks our fifth week in North Carolina, and we’re just about settled in. I am in the middle of organizing the garage a bit so we can more easily get both vehicles in it for the winter, by installing 1’x10’ shelves on the walls so the floor along the walls can be uncluttered. I’ll finish that today, and finish getting shelves in the guest bedroom closet and hang the rest of Veronika’s embroideries. This should just about finish off my “Honey Do” list in the house, as it stands today, ...
