An update on my dovetail attempt

2112 days ago by Gary | 1 comment »

I set everything up per the instructions, put some scrap wood in and after three attemps the two pieces now will fit togather with a little to much space just a few minor adjustments and I will have this figured out. Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read and post advise, you all helped give me the confidence to go ahead and give it a shot. At this point I am thrilled and headed back to the shop after supper to play some more.

A LumberJocks Journey (fictional) #2: the shop

2112 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

As I drove down the hill with my load of hard worked for logs, I realized that maybe what I was going to make wouldn’t work, or maybe I didn’t even like the idea. You see the way an artist should think is controversal. He or she must refrain from the obvious, if it sounds simple and good then it probably isn’t that good of art. I don’t like making furniture that can’t depict a story. It must speak to the user. In fact I prefer this over funtion in most cases...

Why I like Vintage Tools #8: The Finished Scroll Saw

2112 days ago by brianinpa | 19 comments »

Two weeks worth of work standing behind the wire brush, shaking and spraying paint, and it is now useable. It’s not completely finished yet, but it is close enough to it. The only things left to do are repainting the logo plate, finding or making a cap for the pump tube, and remake the model number plate. I also need to get the right size belt to fit properly (I think I am going with the link belt), but I put one on to make sure it works and it cuts fine. The motor i...

Intrigue, controversy & camaraderie from The Woodworking in America 2008 Conference This is the 4th and last part from our interview with Neil Lamens of Funitology Productions fame on his last day at The Woodworking in America Conference 2008.

The Non-Electric Chair #10: Waiting for Beech To Dry

2113 days ago by lethentymill | 2 comments »

Leaving the tool chest for a moment; we go back a few years to the Domesday Book and 1086 and an interesting fact – 13 saws were recorded in the kingdom, bowsaws were common at the time so what kind of saws were these? Probably not sawmills; mills are mentioned aplenty and millponds too but they were agricultural mills. These are probably pitsaws, a gruelling job for two men; one of them in the pit and the other steering the two-handed saw and balancing on the level tree-trunk as they r...

I have plans on attending two woodworking shows in the Detriot Michigan area… Woodworks Events and The Woodworking Shows.

I have been coming to THe Woodworking Show for 6 years and have found the classes and talking with the Suppliers and other woodworkers invaluable. I also plan on attending the “Make Your Own Bandsaw Box” at the Woodworks Events show. I’ll ...

Woodworking Journal #1: Michigan Woodworks --- My Woodworking Shop and Story

2113 days ago by DonFaulk0517 | 4 comments »

Welcome to my woodworking shop and story. This is my first blog and I hope to provide an ongoing status of my workshop and woodworking endeavors in this blog. This is “my story” of a hobby I enjoyed many years ago but became detached from due to my responsibilities at my full-time “real” job. I will update this whenever I can. For me, this is my retreat… my workshop is in my garage on my three arces in the woods with a 1/4 acre pond. Wildlife heaven, with dear, turkeys, and many other anim...
