Circular trays with Dished centers on the Router #3: It's Router Time!

04-13-2009 02:11 AM by HeirloomWoodworking | 8 comments »

Welcome back Friends! First an apology. It has been several days since I have offered to you the previous installments of this blog. Time constraints (kids, work, etc) and my desire to use video demonstrations of the technique have kept me from keeping you informed in a timely manner. Well, today a window of opportunity has opened up. It is raining today, so turkey hunting, softball practice, and yard-work have been postponed. So I have been able to devote some time to my blog view...

woodworking magazine

04-12-2009 11:31 PM by woodsmith | 3 comments »

If you could only buy one woodwoeking magazine which one would you buy? I have not been that happy with the one I have been taking and I decided to look around to see what other choices there were. I didn’t know there were so many! If I try them all I won’t have time to work in my shop, so maybe I will start at the one that gets the most votes and work my way down the list.

Office #4: Dimensional Furniture #3

04-12-2009 09:11 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I know it has been almost a month but it has been a busy one.. with a little time here and there I was able to finish the base desk. I put the last coat of poly on it last night and was able to move it in to the office this afternoon and get that temporary desk moved out of the way. I will be taking it apart and recycling it into new furniture for DW new sewing room. The new desk fit in place great and I am now working on figuring out the next step which will more then likely be my...

There are times in our lives where we either hold what we got or change everything. The past few weeks there has been a change in my way of thinking I have gotten away from my O.C.D and havent taken the time to organize and plan, that ladys and gentle men will be my workshop focus. Changing everything and cleaning up my act making it new and nice or at least cleaner and newer.

Weather Station: The Next Generation #1: Taming the Templates

04-12-2009 06:29 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

This is a simple project that is made more so with a couple of templates. In fact I would not know how to line things up accurately without them. I use two kinds of templates, one to line up drilling and a couple to space the wings. For pictures and previous discussion check out my project page and blog series. I start by laying out the design on graph paper and tape that to 1/4” masonite cut to the same size as the inner top and bottom. I then sandwiched an identical size pi...

More from Cambodia

04-12-2009 06:13 AM by Tim Scoville | 7 comments »

A pic of me and a woodworker in Battambang in NW Cambodia. Made friends with Lance Rasbridge, a social worker, from Dallas area who sits on the board of an NGO called Saboras. He is also a part-time woodworker who started a vocational training program different from our model used in Phnom Penh. This woodworker is a graduate of the program and has his own business now and employs/mentors two other young men. They are using a similar model with sewing, small gas engine repair, computer repair,...

More from Cambodge

04-12-2009 05:48 AM by Tim Scoville | 6 comments »

More pics from our time in Cambodia. This is a pic of the makers of a very typical woodworking tool in Cambodia/Vietnam. Very few woodworking shops do not have one of these of one size or another. I call it a multi-tool. A single 3-5 HP 220V motor runs to a single shaft that drives a table saw blade at one end, an over-and-under jointer and thickness planer, and at the other end, a drill chuck and positioning table for mortising. Although crude, it works fairly well. Not so accurate but ve...
