My Journey #6: Restoring some old iron

09-30-2010 06:56 PM by Trimble | 1 comment »

So, yesterday, I spent more time working on my daughter’s dollhouse. Damn, there are LOTS of little parts to sand. Wow. Yeah, so there’s that. But, I also did some work on my new big toy, the old 50’s Craftsman 6” jointer. I was rusted all to heck, but I bought a bottle of Evapo-rust, and I have been soaking the parts in it. This stuff kicks some ass! If you have rust you need to get rid of, get some of this stuff. It melts away. Plus, it’s not an ...

Hello All, I am back at my parents, as my computer broke. I couldn’t do woodworking, so I did some creative writing. It is a strange blog piece. Brian

Hallo aus Deutschland

09-30-2010 05:20 PM by Eric | 1 comment »

So I’m in my motherland enjoying the cool September weather, the amazing food and drink, and the hospitality of these friendly Germans. Life is good. If only my family could be with me! We had a bit of free time the other day so I latched on to a guy going to a nearby town (Gr├╝nberg) that has a hardware store. I’m not in the market for anything in particular – I just wanted to browse around. So we ended up at Herkules, which sounds like a cool name for a hardware store. I...

CS1 Kitchen Shelf

09-30-2010 04:51 PM by HalDougherty | 2 comments »

Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...

Ronin Woodworking #12: Laminate the top. take 2

09-30-2010 04:48 PM by spaids | 2 comments »

What you can’t see in this pic of the first one is that it waves like the ocean. The only stock I have left is too narrow to make the pieces I need so I had to buy more wood or come up with something. I decided I could go with 8 triangle pieces instead of 4 square pieces and still use the stock I had. Although I cut the triangle as close as I could before I resawed it, I still needed to make a 45 degree shooting board to get the edges nice and tight. I just cut the end off of...

First project over 2000 reads!

09-30-2010 04:35 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Woo hoo! My snakes cutting board has topped 2000 reads. Didn’t think I’d see that happen. Zee is coming up fast, at 1930 reads, as well. I would like to thank all of you out there who view my projects and read my blogs. When I joined LJ’s 8 months ago I didn’t think I would attract this kind of interest. A friend of mine is willing to put together a website for me. Up until recently I have had a block (like a sort of writer’s block) about this. Probably fea...

Time for wood?

09-30-2010 03:43 PM by Bret | 2 comments »

I saw these just today and thought they were pretty cool. Not overly expensive, either. I think this one’s my favorite: Looks like the woods they use are red wing celtis, ebony, maple and guaiaco. I’d love to know how they’re finished.

My Pole Lathe

09-30-2010 01:59 PM by misslolly | 15 comments »

Being a newby to woodworking I don’t have much in the way of tools and equipment, so I set about making some. Here is the pole lather that I started with, in various stages. Unfortunately the pole is way too strong and I need to jump up and down on my treadle to make it work. That doesn’t leave hands free to do anything else but hang on so I have to rethink the pole. As you can see this is a fair weather machine Here’s the tool rest The whole th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #119: Busy Hands are Happy Hands

09-30-2010 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, it certainly turned out to be a better day then the previous one. Besides having to go to the dentist to replace a filling that fell out, everything else went fine. (I love popcorn in the evening!) Business was what I would call back to normal and there was a flurry of activity again and it made me feel good. I did receive an email from someone having trouble accessing the site, but I was able to redirect them to directly tap in the server. Apparently that was the ripple type eff...

Clipboard #2: Old Friends

09-30-2010 11:57 AM by BritBoxmaker | 22 comments »

Before I start. All the pictures in this blog (and all my blogs for that matter) are left handed. I suggest all you righties out there copy the pics and flip them, as I do with your’s. Continuing the ‘atomic’ theme I now introduce you to Manhattan This is the cutting board I use for parquetry. Made in 2001 and still going strong. Its basically like a bench hook, as used for hand sawing, with a couple of differences. Its made from a piece of MDF 350×300 x 6mm w...
