Got a bit windy out and an oak tree fell in my woods. I managed to save a burl which i cut with a hand saw and it took forever to get off. This will be my first attempt at a bowl.cup ( depending on size it finishes to be ) and once again i will use only hand tools. I’ll update it as i go. ENJOY !

Homemade musical instruments really intrigue me. Here’s my version of the slit drum. It actually produces really nice tones that my toy camera can’t adequately reproduce. Make something like this in a coupla hours.

Making 'Floor Dominoes'

09-17-2010 07:13 PM by Dave Owen | 9 comments »

After posting my “Floor Dominoes” project, several readers expressed interest in how the dominoes were made. I wrote the following article and, with minor differences, it has now been posted on both Lumberjocks and on Rockler Woodworking’s “Buzz Saw” site...Set size: Mine is a double-nine rather than a double-six set, even though more than twice the work was involved. The additional work is because a double-six set has only 28 pieces and 168 pips, whereas a do...

sawdust chronicles challenge #4: update, September 17

09-17-2010 06:48 PM by BigTiny | 2 comments »

Hi all. Well, I picked up a 5×5 sheet of 1/2” Baltic birch plywood yesterday for the substrates and to build a table saw cross cut sled, which I’ll need to complete the build. Also picked up a 12×72 inch sheet of maple veneer. There goes $75 of my budget, although about $25 of that will be charged to the sled project, so net is about $50 so far. Another $5 or so will end up in my veneer collection as I won’t need more than half of the sheet, even with using s...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #1: Tool Gloat

09-17-2010 06:22 PM by HokieMojo | 21 comments »

Well, here is the other big tool purchase I made recently (spray can for scale). closer shot: This saw was posted on ebay, but there appeared to be some inaccurate information on it (model number never existed, blade size was incorrect, serial number was never produced, etc). I wasn’t able to get answers to my questions before bidding closed, so I passed on it. Apparently everyone else did too. I suspect it was a combination of a confusing description, making a big purchase w...

Men's Valet Golf Tournament Prizes #1: The Prototype

09-17-2010 02:21 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 1 comment »

I posted a few days ago the prototype design I came up with for a men’s valet station. These were to be prizes to be presented at an upcoming golf tournament in November. I asked you all for input and comments on the design and of course I can always count on you guys just for that. The feedback and suggestions were great and have allowed me to modify the design to make it even better. For those of you who have not seen my submission here is the prototype that I had you all comment o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #106: Facing Challenges

09-17-2010 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It is a cold, dark and rainy day so far today. I wonder if that is an indication of things to come? I have to go to the bank and the post office today and I really don’t look forward to getting wet. It is raining pretty hard and the wind is coming off the ocean so it seems pretty nasty out. Perhaps it will let up by the time the bank opens. I have a long laundry list of things to accomplish today. I don’t like this many loose ends and it is time to take a full day to clean...

Building My Work Shop #1: The Plan!

09-17-2010 07:52 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

The beautiful Seattle Gloom has returned early this year, so it is finally time to get my Work Shop(Garage) up and running. I am going to try and document this as I go. It will be good for me to see how far I end up from my “plan”. In my experience plans are like a guide that points me in a direction. This first Post is actually made up of some “After” shots. When I started it was a total disaster that I couldn’t safely walk across. These pictures are after sp...
