My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

Dewalt 925 Radial Saw

09-18-2014 02:38 AM by jlabos | 7 comments »

I am currently restoring a Sprunger floor drill press but I am always on the lookout on Craigslist for a good deal to either add a new item to my shop or maybe fix something up and turn it around. I have been thinking about adding a Radial Arm Saw to my shop for some time now. After some research I figured if I was going to get one it would be a older Dewalt since most guys rave about them online.Yesterday I happened to look at Craigslist at the right time because I came across this beauty 39...

I know I want… And need… To make changes in the shop. I just ran across these pictures. I forgot about them. Gives me a lot of motivation. This…. (I’m sure you’ve seen before….) Was my original “shop” Of course… My fav… My pallet bench. Then of course…. This was how I did anything. Some plastic tables and my pallet bench. This is what the garage looked like…. BEFORE I got started. At the time before...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #1: After Four Days of Exposure

09-18-2014 12:49 AM by Roger Kimmel | 6 comments »

The box hasn’t darkened appreciably over the past two days, so I put in fresh ammonia in a slightly bigger saucer to give it more surface area. Here’s a funny thing. It felt like the box was damp to the touch. The lid just lies in a rabbet in the sides, and the wood had swollen so much that it was jammed in tight! It really has been picking up moisture. I don’t know if this is due to the fuming reaction, or if it is just a consequence of having the box suspended ove...

Current Project #9: Staining the Table

09-17-2014 11:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I saved it. Does that count for anything? I’ve been having a bit of an adventure staining the table. Aside from not handing it to a professional I know what I did wrong, I tried staining the table. Does good plywood have a project side and a non-project side? I’m using maple plywood. When I made my cuts, I made it so that the plainer side was facing out. Apparently that was my first mistake. So, After I got everything cut, glued, screwed, sanded etc. I hesitated before ...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #2: Stanley #255 ?

09-17-2014 10:52 PM by MadJester | 9 comments »

Today I cleaned up the smaller plane from yesterday…still not completely satisfied, but it will do. I then tackled a vintage Stanley7”. Inside it is marked “C 255” and has an “x” and a “2” below that (it’s covered by the iron). Back has “Made in USA”. The blade is marked “Stanley No. 220 (13-220A) Made in USA”. Not sure if it’s actually a Stanley plane, but no matter…I have several this size that I...

Morris style glider #2: The cut list

09-17-2014 09:08 PM by Orange008 | 4 comments »

I am getting anxious to start on this project. I have the cut list (below) all ready. Unfortunately the lumber yard I am purchasing the material from is only open on the weekdays during my work hours. I finally have a Thursday/Friday off next week, so off to the lumber supplier! I would love to do this in walnut, but cost drives me to white or red oak. I may decide that this is a once in a lifetime piece and end up with walnut.

IMPORTANT: Respect For Others

09-17-2014 05:53 PM by Cricket | 19 comments »

In this community members are expected to treat each other with respect at all times. There will always be disagreements and fusses between members. It is simply human nature. We truly encourage members to discuss and openly share their thoughts on a topic. It is how we all learn and life would be pretty boring if we all felt the same way. That being said, this is not grade school. We don’t gang up in little groups to take sides or encourage others to do the same. If you were at ...
