Happy Forht of July fellow Lumberjocks!

07-04-2010 06:10 PM by Ken90712 | 11 comments »

I would like to take a moment to say, “Happy Fourth of July to all that celebrate this day!” I have met so many people on here from around the world that I have become fiends with if it were not for this site it amazes me. The is so much talent and help on here with very minimal negativity on here it make me proud to be a small part of it. Some times you would think I work for this site, as I always tell woodworkers I meet about this site. I read a blog and replied to it about a fellow ...

A dedicated Mitre Sled for the Tablesaw

07-04-2010 05:52 PM by Bob Simmons | 21 comments »

Has there ever been a time that you’ve struggled to cut a perfect mitre joint? Believe me, there’s no need to feel alone. All of us have had our challenges with the mitre joint at one time or another. So, let’s say that we want to build a woodworking project like a picture frame and we are looking to create four dead-on mitres joints. What’s going to be the woodworking tool of choice? We could use a chop saw or a mitre saw for our joinery. We could use a fine handsa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #31: Scamming the scammers

07-04-2010 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Again I want to express my thanks for the support and comments I received yesterday. It is rare that I lose heart and thank goodness only temporary, but I guess that it was one of those days where everything lined up a certain way and I felt pretty discouraged. To me, it is kind of like when you throw a rock in a lake, at first the ripples are deep and profound, and soon they decrease as they radiate from the center and eventually just level out and disappear. I guess talking helps a lot a...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #1: The Beginning

07-04-2010 05:51 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Wood is the traditional present to celebrate 5 years of happy marriage. With this inspiration I’ve decided to make for us a family dinning table in the same style as the shaker trestle I built in 2008. The timber (from Boutique Timbers) is Tasmania Myrtle (Nothofagus Cunninghamii). I have 6 1” boards of fiddle back, and 6 2” slabs (with faults) to make the project from. The overall style will be the same as the 2008 Blackbutt table. The size is slightly larger 1m ...

Gracie lectern #8: a little progression

07-04-2010 05:17 AM by kolwdwrkr | 6 comments »

Today I got back onto the Gracie project. It’s been awhile since I really spent time on it. I was able to sand everything and started the staining process. Today I stained the belt black, as well as the letters accross the chest. It’s very tedious work. In case your wondering about bleeding into other areas, it turns out that the glue holding the inlay in helped prevent it pretty good. My hands aren’t as steady as they used to be, but I still was able to keep between t...

Extremely Average #183: Which is Better?

07-04-2010 04:11 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

Hello All, There was a recent debate on Twitter, among woodworkers, about which was better. The Festool Track plunge saw and table system vs. the Saw Stop table saw. After much discussion about which I should consider for my next purchase, someone said neither. I gasped. They suggested a bandsaw. This changed the direction of the conversation considerably. I had not been even thinking of getting a bandsaw. Tonight I did some investigating of my own and even went to ACME tools to t...

Another Visit to Socalwood's Tulepeak timber....All I can say is I'm speachless, once again

07-04-2010 01:42 AM by childress | 11 comments »

So I called Rob up a few day’s ago and asked if I can come up on Sat. to flatten some butcher blocks with his wide belt sander, and I get a his typical “Sure, come on up, we’ll help you out” response. Every time I need some help with larger projects, him and his crew (who is Ray, and his pack of dogs) are always willing to help out. No questions asked, just “come on up”. As usual, I’m greeted with his friendly family (sorry Rob, don’t know their...

Just for Fun... #23: And the beat goes on...

07-04-2010 01:25 AM by littlecope | 9 comments »

Who’d have thought it, but I’m making another box!!I made the sides out of a little of the cherry my Parent’s neighbor was kind enough to give me…The bad news is, the band saw only accepts wood under 5 1/2” thick and the original piece was almost 7” wide…The good news is, my boxes are small ones, so I cut about 1 3/4” off of it, and I’ll use that to make the hinges… I guess you can see why this was a cut-off…But the subject tod...
