My wife needs help (oh that doesn't sound good;)

02-16-2009 03:39 AM by Rob | 7 comments »

She’s applied for a amazing job in Austrailia and would like for you to watch her short application video and vote for her (5 stars would be nice!). I thought some of you would appreciate the video as there is a short clip of her in the shop giving hand planing a try. Check it out!

Craftsman Radial Arm Saw #1: Craftsman Radial Arm Saw... Oldie, but is it a goodie?

02-16-2009 03:29 AM by interpim | 10 comments »

I found this saw for $20 today on Craigslist. It is a bit rusty and I need to replace the power cord and grease it up a bit. Tell me if I bought a giant paper weight, or if I found a steal. The motor does run, but the cord has a bit of exposed wire. I plan on getting rid of the rust, greasing the entire thing, giving it a fresh paint job and a new table and base. Well, here it is in all it’s glory, or gory… you tell me :) Also, if you know what mode...

Frontside of Jig;Backside of Jig; I cut the mortise with forstner bits I just got for christmas. then the tenon on the new jig. after mitering the tenons i did my first test fit of a corner. This is my first exercise in mortise and tenon and its been alot of fun. I hope to get better...

Small Cabinet #7: Poorly drawn - but getting closer

02-16-2009 02:45 AM by Betsy | 4 comments »

I’m getting closer – no great shakes here. I’d like to think I’m getting better at SU – but got a very long way to go. So now I have the drawer front, door frames and the top. I’ve not put on any edge trim/shaping yet. How do you draw in a raised panel once you have the door frame made? Thanks in advance.

Small Cabinet #6: Working on proportions - need some SU help - again!

02-15-2009 11:40 PM by Betsy | 1 comment »

OK – I’ve overdone a bit this weekend – so I’m resting and working in SU to finish up my friend’s cabinet. I’m not sure if you call this really resting or wrestling. I’m getting a little frustrated actually – I’ve put SU down for quite a while and feel like I’m starting over. I’ve even gone back over my blog and can’t find this issue or it’s solution. One point of confession here—- yes I know that I’m...

Workshop Ramblings #3: Time Well Spent in the "Toy Box"

02-15-2009 11:14 PM by brianinpa | 3 comments »

I woke up this morning and saw there was a new dusting of snow on the ground, so it appears winter is not giving up just yet. I flipped on the weather channel to see what the temperature was and saw 29 degree f. That wasn’t going to deter me from my plans. I started a fire in the fire place (the back side of the fire place and chimney are inside my garage/shop so the fire heats the house and the shop) so I could get rid of all the small scraps and cut-offs I had pilling up. My shop and...

An artists perspective #1: The plan stan

02-15-2009 09:44 PM by kolwdwrkr | 3 comments »

Last night I finished up my carving of the green man I posted and was thinking (jokingly) that I’m glad I posted it after Marcos sculpture was off the front page. I didn’t want to steal the spotlight from him. LOL. He is a true artist and an inspirational one at that. In fact he is the inspiration to this next piece. I am thinking that I will blog this next carving, possibly with step by step instruction of the carving. Keep in mind that I am in no way a professional carver. ...
