Whats your next project?

02-20-2009 06:23 PM by spaids | 15 comments »

For many of us it is slowly getting back to shop weather. We have turned off and packed up and only been able to exchange coy glances with our table saws. (My Ridgid TS3650 is a naughty little vixen) The time is getting close and every time I think about getting back in the shop I find myself running in circles in my head over what I want to start with. For those of you who, like me, have had to close up shop for the winter, whats the first thing on your plate when the thaw gets here? ...

Carving Tutorial

02-20-2009 06:41 AM by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

Okay now it’s time to tackle this carving thing. First you will need an artistic vision. It took me a long time to come up with this design and it may be a little advanced for me but I’ll see if I can handle it. You will come up with a design that is suitable for your skill. Now lets establish what you will need for tools. You will need the following:A 4lb hammera shark sawvarious sized “SHARP” chisels, preferably polished stanleys such as theseframing hammerdrill...

Random Comments #1: What sets you off?

02-19-2009 10:08 PM by Docwks | 13 comments »

You know it is interesting what sets us off. I am a lover of woodworking tools old, new, power or not; I love them all. I was reading a blog from a famous very tall non-power woodworker about the evils of power tools and how they have created places like IKEA and such for buying furniture. This guy is a really nice guy, he dresses funny, so why should I care what he thinks about power tools? I’m not sure, but it may have to do with feeling guilty about my carbon foot print when I use my Power...

Garage Re-Do #13: Dust Collection Upgrades

02-19-2009 05:35 PM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

So now I have this huge dust collector – for what we’re envisioning it should be great for our setup. The key thing is our tools are multipurpose. One thing that Peggy was very intrigued with was the Ringmaster that came with Shopsmith #2 – the 510 model. (Read the stand-alone review here on LJ— Ringmaster) I’ve been reading a lot on Bill Pentz's dust collection site and it was a good wakeup call. Peggy and I both got sick just about the ti...

A Crib for Nathan #2: Finally Complete

02-19-2009 02:04 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 6 comments »

It’s been difficult finding time to complete this project. When you come home after work to two toddlers, a baby and an exhausted wife, it’s extremely difficult to then suggest you’d like to head out to the shop for a couple hours! “Disappearing” into the shop on weekends can be equally problematic. Nevertheless, we worked out a plan and I finally managed to make the time to get this crib done…and none to soon with Nathan now just over 3 mos. old! I d...

Man thinks,God laughs

02-19-2009 09:18 AM by kiwi1969 | 7 comments »

My old boss once told me that “man thinks, God laughs” Well I have to say right about now the Big guy must be thinking i,m just hysterical. In my last blog I related the tale of how things had gone from bad to worse here in the Philippines ( sad violin music optional) and how business wise it just didn,t happen.Well all I can say about this year is it has been more of the same. None of my plans have gotten off the ground, I was supposed to have my workbench completed by now and a ...

Fine Woodworking Tool Cabinet #1: My interpretation of Jan Zoltowski's tool cabinet

02-19-2009 05:50 AM by Jack Dalton | 7 comments »

When I saw Jan Zoltowski’s tool cabinet in Fine Woodworking I knew I had to make one for my new shop. I was intimidated by the number of finger joints involved since this is only my second big project and I had not done finger joints before. My two best woodworking buddies; Karson Morrison and Bill Jefferson encouraged me to take the plunge. I made a jig and practiced until I felt I could attempt this project. I did not have room on the shop wall where I wanted to put it so I deci...
