The guy told me that it was a Wizard model table saw. Wizards are pretty popular these days,not this discontinued saw, but the Harry Potter type of course. A...

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #1: What I wish I knew before my build

2 days ago by Brad | 1 comment »

Chris Schwarz’ plans for building a Dutch tool chest in Popular Woodworking Magazine are pretty straight forward. It’s an easy build. I would have loved more detail on making the lid. And if by “more” you take that to mean “any”, then you’re correct. The drawings for the large tool chest also fail to show the notches you’ll need to cut into the middle shelf to accommodate the battens on the fall-front door. Other than that, the plans did their job. That is, until I got to configuring ...

The Board, Pt. ll

2 days ago by Gene Howe | 20 comments »

Well, after two power outages that caused the loss of the last two attempts, I think I’ve got this “save” thing down. We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...

Demystifying Door Construction

2 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

Constructing passage doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. One of the ideas that I really want to impress on everybody is this: Don’t be intimidated by new projects. When approaching a new project, most of the woodworking actions needed for it, you have done on other projects. By recognizing this, you create the mindset you need to build something that seems intimidating such as a door. I hop...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1363: Some New Designs

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It seems like it has been a long time since I made a scroll saw design.  It also seems like it has been a while since I painted. Or even embroidered on my 'off hours' for that matter. While I know this isn't really the case, I find myself wondering "what actually am I accomplishing each day" and find myself scratching my head. I know that things have been getting done. I suppose that like with anything, when you really enjoy doing something, it seems like a lon...

Sears Craftsman Dust Collector Refurb

2 days ago by SirFatty | 5 comments »

Last summer I acquired a Sears Craftsman dust collector (113.299780) at auction for $50. It had been stored in a barn for quite some time (and it showed). Lots of rust, dust and other debris and possibly some animals living inside. But it did work, so the purchase was made. It sat in the garage for a year, until a couple weekends ago the work to clean it up began. The simplest way to attack the rust was to sand all the surfaces with 150 grit sandpaper. To get started, ...

Apartment Projects #22: The "Greatest" Picture Frame

2 days ago by littlecope | 19 comments »

Debbie and I love to rummage around at the backs of Department Stores (where they keep all the kitschy stuff) and search for Prints and Pictures to decorate our walls…We’re particularly fond of Photos, or artful representations, of the Icons of our generation… For example, we found this one waiting for us at a Target Store in Manchester… There are few alive who don’t recognize those four young men! Another that came home with us a little later was a Young M...
