We’ll be having a live demonstration and information session at the seminar which focuses on pen turning as an art and hobby to many woodworkers.

Throwin’ My Hat in the Ring… Hey everybody, I just entered the DIY Network Studfinder contest. I hope that everyone will check out my video, give me a vote and post a comment. I will need all that I can get! I have seen some of the personalities that submitted and I was motivated to throw my hat in the ring on this one. It can’t hurt! Just think – I could be saying “Share the Love~Share the Knowledge” on the DIY Network! The video is bare-bon...

Multi-Functional Tablesaw Cabinet #2: The Work Continues

07-13-2009 10:09 PM by Derby | 3 comments »

Progress continues on my Multi-functional Tablesaw Cabinet. Router bit storage will be in six (6) drawers, two ¼” shank and four ½” shank. There is one 3” deep drawer for storing wrenches and such and a chase for routing the wires. Drawer pulls are simply 1” drywall screws until I get the fancier drawer fronts completed. Taking a cue from the plans I got from Norm, I added dust collector capabilities from the router chamber. I still need to add a knob/pull to the oak and ...

Redwood - what to do?? #2: Deciding on a table base - is there an unwritten rule??

07-13-2009 07:49 PM by brukilla | 6 comments »

In trying to look for inspiration in redwood table design, 99.99% of the pics had some kind of redwood trunk or burl as the base. I can’t afford to buy a base like that. Is it completely unheard of to have a table base with actual legs with a redwood top. Personally, I am thinking a dark wood, as to not detract any attention from the redwood top. Plus, the black spots in the top would, in essence, make the dark base an afterthought. I still want to attempt some curves in the table le...

Kitchen Island Project #7: Kickback up close and personal

07-13-2009 06:01 PM by Jim | 10 comments »

I’ve been woodworking for over 20 years and have never experienced kickback on the tablesaw. I’ve heard about it, seen video clips about it … but never experienced it … this was about to change. I was completing the drawers for the kitchen island and had dry fit everything together. The drawers looked good so I went ahead and glued the joints. I was in the process of clamping when I noticed one of the drawers had a slight 1/16” gap in the joint. The panel for ...

Scarf Log Table July #1: Scarf Joint Log Table

07-13-2009 04:43 PM by danzaland | 4 comments »

I was able to grab a log off the side of the road that was about 3 feet long and 13 inches across. I wanted to make something out of it. I had seen a scarf joint bench made by a person who had taken the Timberframing course at The College of the Rockies a session or two before me. I wanted to try it. So here is the log. I first started by peeling all the bark off and then set about getting end lines on the log. I knew I wanted the table to taper from the middle out to both sides, so I drew...

Inlay Tools #5: Thicknessing Gauge

07-13-2009 04:30 PM by Jon3 | 3 comments »

Once again, I went for some more of that curly spalted maple offcut. I spent some time seeing if I could figure out how to make my own tooling from a spare card scraper, my my first attemps to cut down hardened stock were a pretty big failure. I picked up the L-N cutters, since they’re only $15 and appropriately sized already, and went to town. This is by far the simplest tool in the batch. Really, its just a block of wood with 2 cuts, 2 rabbets, and 4 screws. I didn’t thin...
