Scissor horses are all the rage... right?

10-22-2014 07:13 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

These scissor horses are popping up here and there on LJ’s since their introduction. And like many, I thought… a great idea. I do a lot of work with molding and flooring here. I usually bring in my old horses, put a piece of plywood over them and set up shop where the work is. When I saw these horses I decided that they were a great thing and especially since I use a miter saw a lot. To make the I actually started by outlining both parts of the scissor legs on a large piece of pa...

Another Pause, But For a Good Cause.

10-22-2014 07:12 AM by BrockF | 0 comments »

Hello again fellow woodworkers. It’s now officially 1 year since the new shop/garage was built. I should be completing my big bench build this week and bringing the car back in at night, but sometimes things get put on hold. It just so happens we helped a friend with an elderly parent and the entire front of the shop is filled with bags and boxes to be donated to the Chicago Epilepsy Foundation. Gives us a wonderful feeling to be able to help them in their cause. A lot of people se...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1429: Busy Times

10-22-2014 06:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

With the holidays quickly approaching, I can see all of my creative friends kicking things into high gear. Many people are not only doing items for craft shows, but also for thie own holiday gift giving. I find that more people are looking to make gifts rather then buy them from the store. This is great news for designers and crafters alike, as not only does it keep us busy, but it helps perpetuate our hobbies and small businesses as well. Yesterday I didn't get as much as I would ha...

Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench #9: Mistakes...

10-21-2014 08:53 PM by rhybeka | 2 comments »

I’m one of those folks who agonize over every detail when something happens, trying to overanalyze the whys,what’s,how’s, etc to completely reverse engineer why I made the mistake, the reasoning behind it, and engrain it into my memory so (hopefully) will never repeat it – or any semblance of it. Yeah – I have the catholic guilt to go with it and I’m not even catholic! Anyway… so I got some time in the shop this weekend to see where I am at. All my pi...

Shop Storage

10-21-2014 08:21 PM by Todd Swartwood | 5 comments »

I have been in my new shop a little over a year now, but it seems to have a mind of its own.I have been rearranging equipment and adding new storage. Most all of the Items are close to finished, Most of the shop cabinets still need drawer faces. I am quite happy with the way they are working out. My main bench has a 5” thick maple top, with a Chestnut base cabinet. Also directly behind my main work area are my Tool Chest, and my Cutter storage/hardware storage Chest. As well as st...

10-21-2014 02:59 PM by stefang | 13 comments »

I had big plans for lots of progress today, but I wound up doing a lot of chauffeur work instead so I didn’t get into the shop until late afternoon. I did manage to cut the miters for the basket sides and I will cover how I did that in this episode. Compound Angled miter set-up Making an angled fence.As most of know, miter angles are usually pretty accurate with the saw set to cut 45 deg. angles with the cut being done at 90 deg. However when we tilt the saw away from 90 deg...

Oak Wood Pile #1: Oak Wood Pile

10-21-2014 01:54 PM by VMTW | 0 comments »

I just got a load of rough-cut red oak from a tree that I had to cut down due to the “Mother in law suite” we are adding to our house. I thought I would write about it from time to time as it progresses from green wood to lumber to furniture. I ended up with about 1400bf of red oak for around $500! The first thing I want to build will be a desk for my office in the basement in the new addition. I am thinking of some kind of a Mission style Library table like this. I am not...
