Home Made Woodworking Accents and Decorations #1: My First Mosaic Pin

11-18-2017 02:48 AM by Jerry | 18 comments »

After having recently paid $25.00 for a little 8” piece of mosaic pin that I used on my last box, I decided to start making my own. Here is my first one. It’s not epoxied up yet, but you can see the pattern pretty well. This piece is about a foot long and cost me about $10.00 to make.

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...

Disston No. 12 Handsaw with Cone Nuts and Washers

11-17-2017 04:38 AM by summerfi | 7 comments »

Disston No. 12 Handsaw with Cone Nuts and Washers The No. 12 handsaw was one of Disston’s premium saws. They began producing the saw sometime in the 1860s and discontinued its production when the model D-12 was introduced in 1928. During this period the No. 12’s handle and fasteners went through several iterations. According to the Disstonian Institute (, the fasteners used during at least part of the 1860s and 1870s were brass truncated cone-shaped scre...

This week in the shop: Project Paralysis

11-17-2017 03:49 AM by Woodbutchery | 1 comment »

So I’m working on Christmas presents and making progress on that, and I’ve finished several small projects that keep the wife happy and make living just a tiny bit easier. With all that productivity and project finishing, where does the paralysis come in? Four years ago, almost to the day, I received several board feet of what I thought was mahogany but might actually be sapele. It was my first (and so far only) wood gloat . It didn’t take me long to figure out what I ...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #10: Panels Rising

11-17-2017 12:16 AM by Ron Aylor | 4 comments »

Panels Rising -  With all of the mortises cut and a bit of tab A into slot B  …                 … the frame of the Prie Dieu back began to take shape.  Once fitted together I drilled holes for the draw-bore pins.  While the frame was clamped up, I determined the overall size of the panels to be 7-7/8” x 13-3/4” …  ... I decided on a profile akin to this.          I then cut two panels from 3/4” Ambrosia maple stock. With the walnut receiving the General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/S...

Tool Cabinets #4: Dovetails chamfered and extended

11-16-2017 11:57 PM by glideking | 1 comment »

This is a microscopic study in Sketchup of what it might look like if I extend and chamfer the dovetails on the cabinet. I made a lot of mistakes before getting it right. Glad it was only pixels not my lumber. Why are we so proud of the mess we make when the work was done with hand tools but not machines. #6 and #8 Stanleys on the table. I “sprung” the joints with a few shavings from the #6 before using the T&G plane.All the big slabs are glued up for the deepest cabinet. ...

Adventures in CNC routing #2: Fixing and editing tool paths

11-16-2017 08:15 PM by Tooch | 1 comment »

My last entry was about the trials of setting up and running my first big project on a CNC machine. Since then, I’ve been able to get back at it and make some of the necessary changes. First thing to acknowledge is that this was my first time extracting vectors from an image (my wife’s logo). When I first did that, I should have checked the vector for any imperfections, but I skipped that step and went straight to the toolpath setup. Heres a look at what the program interface lo...
