I apologize to everyone for my first try at this very article. Grammatically written the first time in a terrible way. It has been redone after a lot of hours. I also do not see well anymore so I did the best I could.

What the #%*$ is that in your hand? It's a BowlSaw!

12-26-2008 09:19 PM by Steuss | 5 comments »

My friend Ron was going to his woodturning meeting when he met an “old-timer” turner. “What the #%*$ is that in your hand?” “It’s a BowlSaw. Let me show it to you.” “Get away from me with that thing. I’m afraid it will bite me!” And that’s the response I get to my new hand-held coring unit for 6” to 8” bowl blanks. Even the former president of my club, after seeing me demo the unit and make 3 sets of bowls in...

Ponderings #26: Do We Ever Have Enough Stuff?

12-26-2008 08:36 PM by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

A bookcase. Seems like such a simple project. I looked at the tools I had, or were going to get anyways, and I either had it or could get one inexpensively. So, I made out some rough plans in my head. I’ve had a ton of help with the actual design over on T-Chisel’s forum. The design discussion was mostly on specifics, nothing that required new tools (perhaps new router bits, but that’s a continuing thing for life I suspect). And yet, every time I turn around, I find mo...

Congradulations again to Patrick on his finishing in the finals of Woodcentral’s top shop contest. also entered “the barn” in this contest and feel very fortunate to finish as a “semifinalist”. Considering the greatly designed shops with unique and ingenius ideas I feel humbled just to be on the same page. Ive been working more in the shop than on the shop but I hop...

I got tired of chasing my big router around the bench when changing bits or setting depth of cut so today I grabbed a piece of 1×4” and a chunk of 1/4” mdf and made a cradle.I traced around the router and cut the MDF out in a rough pattern on the bandsaw then tuned it a bit with the spindle sander.From wood stuff 2009Next I put a brace inside to support the router top and covered it with a bit of foam to prevent scratching. Heres the finished cradle held on the bench with ...

What did YOU get for Christmas

12-25-2008 07:25 PM by DocK16 | 32 comments »

Okay boys and girls, couple months ago everyone posted their “wish list” when the government anounced their economic stimulus check (return of our own money). On somewhat the same note; give it up, what did Santa bring you for your shop? I guess I’ll go first: a hot iron to mark/brand all my projects. Yeah it was a wish list item… the way Merry Christmas morning everyone.
