Halloween 2010

10-21-2010 01:02 PM by MagDaddy2 | 1 comment »

New project, started at the last minute (the norm) so I have to hurry and get finished. Last Sunday I pieced some of the coffin details together. Chose a coffin over a casket as the coffin is more associated to Halloween than the casket. Toe Pincher seems scarier!!!Well, I will add/cull more pics as it progresses. IT will be animated, expect the skeleton to break thru the door vs opening the door… :0>

I was surprised and pleased that Tom was interested in featuring Upper Cut Woodworks on his blog. I quickly agreed. It’s always great to talk to another woodworking blogger, and Tom and I had a great conversation. This was a really fun process. Check it out here.

One Step Forward, Two Steps back

10-21-2010 05:52 AM by Manitario | 9 comments »

This is a tale of two back injuries, a planer, a jointer and a small garage. The story starts with me buying the Dewalt DW735 13” planer. I had bravely planned to keep it under my bench, and haul it out when it was needed. Seemed like a good plan at the start. I was a little worried by it being listed as weighing 92lbs, but I reasoned that “hey, I’m a young guy and yeah, 92lbs is heavy but I’m strong.” Fast forward to me bringing the planer home and lifting it ou...

Hello, My Lie-Nielsen 3/4” chisel and the fishtail, named Manfred and Donna respectively, did a great job today. We had lots of fun, despite me making one slight stratigic blunder. Thanks, Brian

In The Beginning #5: My Shop Helpers!

10-21-2010 04:59 AM by Crushgroovin | 5 comments »

I started this not so little venture into woodworking last spring leading up to my boys Pine Wood Derby Races. We rocked the races brining home two first place den trophies and 2nd place overall. Since then I have spent dozens of hours in my workshop with my boys. It has been everything I had hoped for and more. One nice part is how excited they get about cleaning ;) LOL they argue over who gets to vacuum and always have the hand broom at the ready. I am taking advantage of every minute o...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #10: Done

10-21-2010 04:38 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

It’s been quite some time since I worked on the vanity mirror but with my wife’s insistnace I finished it up this week and it is hung on the bathroom wall finally. I finished it with an oil based poly that I hand rubbed on finished with past wax. The finish came out very nice and the true test of success is that my wife has been bragging to her friends that I made it.

My Journey Into Woodworking #7: This Year - Just When We Thought It Was Calming Down

10-21-2010 04:36 AM by Steve | 8 comments »

The year started with my wife doing pretty well. Things were getting back to normal. I was starting to think about that coffee table again. I had a major plane build going though so it had to wait as I wanted to fly this one right away. With a 154” wing span, that’s a lot of wood to cut and glue and it was getting on to flying season. Plus I decided it was time to renovate the house. Then it hits the fan again. I managed to tear the muscles in my arm in 5 places humping 3/4&#...

My Journey Into Woodworking #6: Year 4 - A Long, Tough Year

10-21-2010 04:02 AM by Steve | 0 comments »

I decided to build a coffee table with drawers. I wanted to learn mortise & tenon joinery originally. Along the way I picked up a pocket hole jig. I decided to give it a try instead as my next project would have through tenons. That way I wouldn’t repeat a skill set. I know. Doing something once doesn’t make you a master but it does teach me the basic skills. Not to mention each project gets either bigger, more complex or both. I want to get as much experience under my...

My Journey Into Woodworking #5: The Third Year Gets Frustrating & Expensive

10-21-2010 03:19 AM by Steve | 2 comments »

I wanted to add a belt/disc sander to my tool collection. I purchased a Grizzly POC. After months of returning one bad unit after another I gave up. I bought a cheapo from Harbor Freight and tore it apart and rebuilt it into a working unit. Sad that you should have to do that with a new tool but such is life. Soon I figured out that like most things I do I have a tendency to be very critical of my work. Miters were my biggest gripe at this point. I’ve come to a conclusion that ...
