Power Upgrade #31: Nearly There...I can almost taste it!

2 days ago by Nate Meadows | 12 comments »

O what a summer it has been! I bet you all know what I am talking about. As the school year winds down you look forward to a change of pace, some R&R and some time to really get things done…...Right!!!!...I forgot summer is busier than the school year. When the boys are in school your wife can’t come home and say, “Hey, I’m feeling good, lets go the lake for the next three days.” And then when you get back its a BBQ at Dads and a get together at the brother-i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1369: Thinking Wider - Versions

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

It is probably no secret to any of you that not only do I create scroll saw patterns and projects for a living, but I also create painting  patterns. I have always felt that the two fields were closely related, as when I first began painting I very quickly found a need to learn to cut my own wood so I could have a good supply of things to paint. I have always been one to learn to do things for myself. Perhaps it was because I was impatient or because I was always changing the painting pa...

Busy with the House

2 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This past week I’ve been occupied with a non-woodworking project in our house. I did have to fire up the TS to rip a few pine boards for a door jamb. The major part of the undertaking is done, but it’s got a ways to go yet. The good news is that since we had to rent a pick up truck to get the wallboard home, I now have the plywood I need to start my table project for our church. Not sure if project that will be next in line, but it’ll be soon.

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #2: More Flattening, coming up with a plan

2 days ago by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I’m not an expert in Live Edge work. I’m doing this blog because I’m making this as a wedding gift, and I thought the recipients might find it interesting after they receive it. Perhaps some folks on LJ might find it helpful as they work through similar issues. I found an image on the net that serves as an inspirationIt will not be a copy at all, since I’ll be using a thinner slab, different wood, and a variation on the design. I’d already decided to do a w...

60,000,000 Year-Old Stalagmite Display Stand #3: Made the Front Page

2 days ago by OttoH | 2 comments »

Got to love free advertising, today I made the front page of the Black Hills Pioneer for the stalagmite stand I built. The article was rather large with the first half dedicated to Wonderland Cave and the second half dedicated to my shop and the things I make. Right now I am a very happy woodworker.

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #6: Tool Rack

3 days ago by Brad | 1 comment »

For those of you who enjoy making lots of mistakes and finding out after hours of work that your tool placement won’t work, I highly recommend that you dive right in to making your rack and don’t bother with a prototype. I don’t enjoy that process, so I very much bothered with a prototype. This allowed me to firm up a number of dimensions while simultaneously avoiding nasty mistakes. I began by laying out all the tools I wanted to put in the rack onto my workbench. Then, starting from t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1368: More on DecoArt One Step Crackle Medium

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I can't even begin to tell you all how excited I am about this product. Even though it has been around for a while (I have had some in my arsenal of paints and mediums for years!) I had never taken the time to play around with it and try it out. I have used crackle finishes many times before, but usually I am looking for a more 'rustic' or 'country' look and my go to product was DecoArt Weathered Wood. I love that product, and I had even  made a video showing how I ap...

Disston Handsaw Restoration #6: Sharpening the Blade

3 days ago by Skip Mathews | 4 comments »

Here are a few pictures and notes on my sharpening process. Many of you know a great deal more than I about sharpening sawblades but I thought I would document my process and see if anyone has any pointers for improvement. Here is my set up. I made my vise out of a couple of 2×8 yellow pine and beveled the top edge to make it narrow and allow me to get closer to the blade for filing. I checked for a slight bow in the wood so when the two boards are placed together the ends touch an...
