Nashville WoodWorking show

2076 days ago by lazyfiremaninTN | 3 comments »

I heard that the Woodworking show was coming to Nashville for the first time in several years I got kinda misty-eyed. I was able to travel with my wife and son to West Virginia to see Greg3G and we went to the Chantilly, VA Woodworking show last March and we had a great time. I have quietly been saving my change, putting 1 dollar here, 5 dollars there back since I found out the show was coming. I planed to go tomorrow, but a friend at work called in a favor, so I have to work a double this...

Old tools #2: More goodies

2076 days ago by Andraxia | 5 comments »

Well I am just back from driving 2 trailer loads to the tip. As promised a report for you all. Did I get any new tools you ask? Well no alas I already managed to get the cream of the crop. There were a few really rusted tools that were beyond even my ‘must save all tools’ mind set. One screw driver disintegrated upon lifting. Alas the shed had a major leak over the tool storage area of the shed. I did manage to pick up some timber though so I am more than happy with my da...

2076 days ago by Etsy | 7 comments »

Toymaker Amber Dusick aka woodmouse her wood shop in her garage in downtown LA. After the birth of her son, this one time farm girl from Wisconsin became nostalgic for the toys from her past: simple, natural toys that would inspire creativity and imaginative play, made from materials that wouldn’t stick around in a landfill for thousands of years. After years of silver smithing, throwing pottery and drawing with pen and ink, Amber finally found her medium in wood. Using sustainab...

DEAL of the day... maybe even the month/year - Lowes, Freud Router set $99

2076 days ago by AaronK | 11 comments » the last 12-days deal. I did order it, figuring on the good return policy at lowes, in case there is something horrible about this thing. Otherwise, this router specs out very well for my purposes, and WAY better than the Skil clunker i’ve been using. 13A, 1/2” collet, soft start/vari speed, dust port, two bases… it all checks out. i cant find many reviews of the thing, and some have been stellar...

Various Projects #5: Mom's Bookcase Part 2: There's Wood Here Now

2076 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

Apparently, my dear old Mom is more impatient than I am! Why do I say this? Simple. We both happen to be off today, and she announces to me this morning that she’d like for us to go a pick up the Poplar for her bookcase this morning. I figured it makes a certain amount of sense, considering the wood needs to dry out a bit before being worked, despite coming from Lowe’s. There was just one little problem with this…I hadn’t designed it yet! So, this will be inter...

Dads Wooden Box Repair Advice

2076 days ago by tsmith | 7 comments »

Dad passed several years ago now but left me a box he had made when a kid and gave to his mom. It is in disrepair with glue joints failing (@ 50 years old).

The wood retains a bit of shine on 80% of the exterior, interior has no shine. The box measures @6 inches across front, @4 inches to back and @3 inches tall. The grain is red to brown, not sure if it’s mahogany....
