While on my weekly trash run to the transfer station I came across a perfectly good pair of work bench legs and an old solid core door. With these and a couple of 2×4s and a few bolts I now have a sturdy bench to hold all my material and get it off the floor.

12-05-2008 11:42 PM by Karson | 21 comments »

Well AARP Sent me an e-mail and a video that showed that I should be running for president. Then I found out that I didn’t win but the exit polls still showed interest in my candidacy. Well it did happen. I was elected President – Of the Mason Dixon Woodworking Club efective January 2009,. So I’ll be in office before Obama makes it in. But his pay is higher than mine.

I have seen a lot of comments on this web site about things being done to keep the wife happy. Here are two things my dad told me years ago. 1. NEVER criticise yours wifes judgement, look who she married. 2. If your wife isn’t happy you will not be happy, and if she is not happy long enough you will not be happy with just 1/2 of your stuff.

Wood Magazine Display Case #1: In the beginning

12-05-2008 10:49 PM by depictureboy | 1 comment »

There was the idea…and the idea was good. <<sigh>> Well we have 3 weeks to Christmas…3 weekends. Well I have the wood together thanks to my buddy who does primitive furniture. Karson helped me plane most of it down to thickness, and the rest I got done at a local woodworkers shop. I have it marked out roughly and now am feeling the angst of not having all the equipment I would really like to have. Tomorrow I gotta go to HD and get some 1/4 and 3/4 plywood and mdf. Th...

Project "V" #1: Shop Made Drum Sander Project

12-05-2008 06:39 AM by Emeralds | 32 comments »

A blog sounded like the right place for this prattle, so I submit this for anyone who is interested. The drum sander is one of those things that you know you can live without until you actually have an opportunity to use one. When I was given a demonstration by a friend at a local cabinet shop on a work piece I had been struggling with, I was instantly sold. The only real problem was finding the $1800 bucks needed to get a similar unit. Even if I could have sold my wife’s car, and replaced...

Circle Cutting Jig

12-05-2008 06:17 AM by Grumpy | 11 comments »

I needed a jig to make a lazy susan, my blog is at; jig was not my design but came from an article in a magazine. It is fairly simple & I thought it might be worth sharing.There are 3 wooden components & a handful of metal bits. A 1/4”X6” disc can be stuck to the item you want to shape or a 1/4 pin can be screwed into a hole in the centre of the item as in the above photo.A 4 1/2”X 1/2” piece of desired length...

and then it becomes....... #6: marquetry conquest

12-05-2008 05:19 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

Well it has been a while since my last posting on this project. As promised I will show my way of doing marquetry and carvings. Remember that these are my techniques, and yours may vary. There are a ton of ways of doing things and I’m sure there’s a lot of ways easier then mine. For instance many of you may prefer to use a router to route out a majority of the material, then use chisels to cut to the line. I use chisels simply because I do the work on my dining room table. I...

Lazy Susan

12-05-2008 05:01 AM by Grumpy | 15 comments »

This project had more hickups than an old drunk in the park but thanks to three of my buddies who gave some excellent advice I was able to straighten (I do mean straighten) things out. Our Kitchen table is an 8 seater. Reaching items in the middle was a bit of a nuisance unless you stood up. A lazy Susan was the answer, but what size?.I drew the whole thing on sketchup but that did not give a satisfactory idea of proportion. I then cut two 8mm (5/16”) plywood templates, a 500mm & 60...

havent gotten in the shop much in the past couple days

12-05-2008 12:35 AM by AaronK | 3 comments »

since finals are here and that’s kept me busy. meanwhile, some notes: 1. did realign the rip fence. I added a block made of pine scrap to support the inside of the hollow aluminum fence. it is screwed through one side and is exactly the width of the interior channel. it seems to have helped the deflection a lot. 2. the thin plywood i got is called “Lauan” and is apparently made from sustainable forests in the tropics. OK…. i suppose i’ll take their word for...
