I’m a bit behind on posting, but here is a Rapier block I tuned up. Thanks Poopiekat. It’s a much better built plane than I expected. The blog is here with more photo's.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #11: Making Shavings

10-18-2014 10:37 PM by technoslick | 4 comments »

Earlier this afternoon I started out with the notion I would get as much of the superstructure for the table saw done as time would allow for. The bottom of the base (seen earlier) is made entirely out of new lumber, which wasn’t my intention from the onset. I was getting ready to make a trip out to our local Lowe’s for more 2” x 4”s when I decided to use the reclaimed lumber in the dungeon. After I found a couple of boards with straight edges long enough to cut to ...

Craft show 10-18-14

10-18-2014 10:18 PM by OldWrangler | 8 comments »

We’re just back from the Sawdust Road Baptist Church Fall ‘14 Craft Show Seems appropriate to take woodworking to a church called Sawdust. 37 vendors total, mostly what we call quach. Somewhere I heard that a polite word for someone elses junk is Quach. This may be a real word, could be German or Yiddish, who knows but it is what it is. This was a lot of stuff like Mary Kay Cosmetics, some kind of Kool-Aid powder to add to bottled water to make it taste bad, ...

NOT your average Screen Door: Installed!

10-18-2014 05:29 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, late last night, went out and bought two packs of sandpaper, 60 grit & 100 grit. Gave the pine a good sanding all the way around, with both grits in a Palm sander. Dusted the now smooth mess off. Gave both faces of the door a good thick coat of Kilz Exterior Primer, and let it set overnight. Somehow, I managed to get paint on 9 out of 10 fingers, AND the door, and not one other thing in the entire shop! SKILL! Ok, this morning, brought the door up out of the Dungeon...

Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #4: ATW #50

10-18-2014 12:08 PM by JSB | 0 comments »

Every Saturday morning since September 2013 I’ve put together a short list (5-10 items) of interesting stuff that I’ve found on the internet from the previous week. Some old stuff, some new stuff. Mostly videos, some articles. It’s stuff that I have enjoyed watching or reading in the world of woodworking and think others would enjoy as well. For those who are interested in this series here is post number 50:

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1425: Cutting, Cutting and more Cutting

10-18-2014 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

The past few weeks, I have really lived up to my name "Scrollgirl". It seems I have spent more time than ever at the scroll saw. But that is a good thing, right? It goes to show me that it may very well be possible to be able to design both woodworking and painting patterns and keep things in balance. It helps tremendously having a partner like Keith. He is so talented and when I meander over to the painting side of things for  a while, he is always busy keeping our scroll...

New holdfast design

10-18-2014 03:40 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

I’ve been tired of seeing the traditional holdfast design. Seems as if they are all the same. I decided to change it up a bit and also try out a new technique. I would like opinions ax well. These are just a prototype. On a finished set the shaft will be rounded and the duckbill will be shorter. This is from 1” stock so it was harder to egg a nice twist. I believe 3/4” stock would look nicer and I could show the diamonds better. Do you all think there would be an interes...
