30 projects in 30 days #13: round II, in review

07-02-2009 04:05 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

So I had a little company this go round, (Thanks Darryl and Russel!) I hope a few more join the next attempt in November (It’s a great way to stock up on some Christmas presents! Had a good time, made some new things I’d never tried before (which, essentially is the entire point of this creative challenge), and with the past 40 or so days of rain we had, I certainly wasn’t missing out on any time in the garden or at the beach. To that end, I have to say this time was ...

building a shop

07-02-2009 01:03 AM by randyb | 16 comments »

I can’t believe how important my shop is to me. I call it a workshop not a wood shop, I am always out there doing something, fixing, building, and thinking. its been called an unorganized mess, whatever! maybe so but its my mess, as long as there is a place for my coffee and my old rocking chair I’m happy. every morning when I take the dog out to do her thing, I open the door and just smile, its my place.

Upper Deck #3: More Framing

07-01-2009 11:46 PM by Zuki | 2 comments »

Its Canada Day. A day off from the ole grind . . . so I went back at the deck. I started by adding two more stringers. You will see why in a little while. I’m not sure if everyone is like this, but when I’m working on an outside or rough construction work I like using scraps of wood as a notepad for jotting down measurements. This particular piece was left over from some xmas tree ornaments I made last fall. Here is the frame all braced. Before bracing I checked it for squa...

"Art Box" Tutorial #7: The Medallion

07-01-2009 06:32 PM by Andy | 23 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...

Getting Creative with Gorilla Glue Epoxy

07-01-2009 06:16 PM by Andy Brownell | 4 comments »

Filling Imperfections I do freelance blogging work with Gorilla Glue on the side and gave their new Epoxy a whirl on woodworking applications. I thought it was worth sharing in this forum. The wood that I obtained from a local source was decent, but certainly not top grade material. It had some knots on otherwise clear boards, and it just didnt’ seem right to trash a huge piece on account of a few minor imperfections. The inside of the bookcase only had one spot the size of a dime...

A Moving Experience

07-01-2009 05:38 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 13 comments »

Moving an entire wood shop is no fun. But you can save yourself a lot of back ache if you hire some help. Money well-spent if you ask me. In this episode I show you everything I did to get my shop ready for the road trip. By no means is this meant to be a guide of any sort. Rather, its just a peak into my personal experience. And if you ever have to move your own shop, you’ll know what you’re in for.

my first post

07-01-2009 02:42 PM by randyb | 5 comments »

I’m am so excited! I finally figured out why my old Powermatic 66 table saw wouldn’t start. I have been working on this problem for a week now, I really feel bad for all of the names I called it. along with the guy I bought it from. The breaker for my 220 was only on one leg of the shop power! you would think for an aircraft mechanic I would have caught that pretty quick huh. It doesn’t matter, It works!!!!! I love the sound of the big cabinet saws when they power up, kinda ...
