Not much of a blog...

2070 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 1 comment »

I ended up running very late on getting these clocks finished for Xmas, so I didn’t have time to blog this project like I wanted to. Having said that, the results are up as a project now if anyone would like to view it!

Shop Skills #2: Card Scrapers the Video!

2070 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 54 comments »

It’s Finally Here! I have completed my first feature woodworking video. This video shows how I sharpen my card scrapers. It is a simple process and I kept the instruction simple with some close-up video action. I hope this post goes smooth, it has taken me all day to figure out how to finish up the video and 3 attempts to get it online. So this is a pretty big moment. I can work on polished video later but I have to start somewhere. I hope that this video on sharpening ca...

Blabber Fingers 15,000 posts

2070 days ago by Karson | 27 comments »

A while back some called me blabber fingers. I guess that must be true. This blog is my 15,000 post on this site. And I’m having as much fun if not more now than when I first started. Been a member for 964 days so I’m coming up on my three year anniversary. This site has really grown in the last 6 months. I appreciate Martin and all he does to provide a site that we woodworkers are all able to enjoy. I hope to be able to get back into the shop, now that Christmas is over ...

ambrosia maple turnings #1: spalted ambrosia maple bowl

2070 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 3 comments »

I got some pieces of spalted ambrosia maple and decided to turn a bowl and vase from the largest pieces. This piece of log was just a little over 12 inches in diameter and I cut it 8 inches long. The piece was mounted between centers to start the rough turning. I have a spur drive that fits my nova chuck which saves a lot of time. A recess is created in the rough turned piece and will be held internally by the nova chuck jaws. With the piece secured in the Nova Jaw I s...

shop upgrades #1: 6" bandsaw riser block kit

2070 days ago by Julian | 2 comments »

After months of waiting, I finally pulled the trigger and bought the grizzly model h3051 extension block kit for my rigid bs1400 bandsaw. The instructions were easy to follow, and there were no surprises with the conversion. Let me first say that the reviews were correct in stating that the supplied blade is garbage. I ordered a few different 105” olson allpro blades and the 5/8” 3tpi blade slices through 10”oak like butter. I was concerned that the 3/4 hp motor would be und...

lathe stand upgrade #2: lathe stand storage

2070 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 2 comments »

Here are a couple of shots of the storage area under the turning tools. Some dust and shavings do get into the PVC pipes, but when I am ready to clean up I just vacuum each tube out with my shop vac. I am building some custom storage to put inside this cabinet – stay tuned for this upgrade!

Christmas Gifts 2008

2070 days ago by Jim | 3 comments »

I think this was my favorite Christmas when it comes to Christmas shopping. The reason why is that I did very little … shopping. I made most of my gifts in the workshop, a few of which are posted here. I did a large number of pens with each one being selected for the recipient. I considered whether they would be more inclined to use a Slimline, Euro or Cigar Style. What kind of wood would they like. Then I custom made gift boxes for each one. I also made a clock for my lovely wife who h...

Various Projects #7: Mom's Bookcase Part 4: Steel to Wood

2070 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 2 comments »

After the hiccup a week or so ago, it was time to get back into the swing of things. I had the wood, and all the materials I needed. My tool issues were solves thanks to a very kind soul who took pity on me and sent me another collet for my router. I picked up a new bit and it was time to go to work. So, I got to cutting today. Everything was cut a little long, and I’ll be trimming everything down in a couple of days to final lengths. The 12” boards were ripped down to 10 ...

The Christmas Letter

2071 days ago by robbi | 1 comment »

Here’s another “family update”. This is my annual Christmas letter, I started these when my kids were little. I used to get so many letters from people talking about their children’s successes that I started writing letters relaying mostly lies regarding my children (ie: juvenile hall adventures, etc). Most everyone thought it was pretty funny, although I had to tell my mom that it was a joke….anyway….my kids were pretty funny so I had a lot of material...
