I had another allergic reaction

09-30-2009 06:49 AM by Blake | 30 comments »

I haven’t been spending too much time in the shop ever since i finished the Jellyfish Table. I actually moved about 10 miles away from my shop so it is not as easy to “casually” do woodworking after work, after dinner, here and there on weekends, etc. My shop is on family property, so its not going anywhere. It takes me about 25 minutes to get there from where we are staying now. So I mostly go on a weekend day here and there. I have been up to the shop a few times to ...

Sliding Table attachment

09-30-2009 05:33 AM by childress | 14 comments »

Looking at this, you can see I have a little too much time on my hands. But I guess good things can come from having no work… You get to make jigs and the like! This “side project” started after I received about 8 tabletops (it was 15 halfs) from a local stain mfg that recently went out of business. The tops were all damaged in shipment here to the states, they got them to test their products on. Well, now they don’t need them and I scored! I ripped, planed a...

A journey into the workshop. #12: Moving the table saw, and sticking the bench top tools to the wall...

09-30-2009 05:21 AM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Just a short note about the progress on my shop made today… #1. The lumber for the fence got stacked more neatly to the side, in a much taller stack. This proved to be a less than brilliant idea, but it is what it is… #2. The table saw, and workbench got moved into their almost final positions in this workshop. Which means bench behind table saw to act as outfeed support, and both rotated 90 degrees so that oufeed from the bench can get picked up by the craft bench. #3.Th...

little gloat.

Went to lowes to get some pocket hole screws, which they didn’t have. but checked the close out table. Got 4 qt’s of Cabot stains for $1 each , a gallon of stain (also Cabot) for $2 and a gallon of Minwax water base poly for $10. I don’t know if this was limited to my store or something going on throughout the chain but it might be worth looking for if you happen in to a lowes.

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #10: Cutting Stem and Keel Rabbet

09-30-2009 04:44 AM by MattD | 3 comments »

This next part is cutting the rabbet into the Keel and Stem. The rabbet is a groove for planking to butt into. The rabbet must be accurately cut in order to form a tight seal. The rabbet for sunshine runs down both sides of the stem as shown and continues along the keel to the stern. Keel Rabbet Cutting the Rabbet in the Keel was relatively easy since I had already beveled the keelson from the lofted lines in the Stem and Knee - Part 2 section. To me, it seemed practical to try ...

Woodworking vacation #17: Day two - dovetails with Frank Klauz

09-30-2009 01:34 AM by Betsy | 8 comments »

Wow – another productive day. Most of us actually have the box together and close to ready to cut the lids off! I apologize first that I left my camera and notes at the school. Too tired to go back for them so I’ll try to do the best I can from memory. I think I left off on having just finished the pins and getting ready to mark and cut the tails. My first issue with my pins is that they are really steep – way to steep – but workable. The problem with steep pi...

09-30-2009 01:02 AM by Sam Yerardi | 5 comments »

Today I am beginning a new blog about my latest home project. I am remodeling our front living room in the Greene & Greene style, including making the lighting, the front window and the furniture for it. This will be an example of what I will be marketing as part of my business. Our house is an early 60’s ranch with a full basement. The outside of the house is Ashlar sandstone. I will try to organize the process by indicating Day 1, Day 2, etc. Note that Day 2 may not follow t...
