Rockwell 37-600 jointer

08-28-2014 08:17 PM by jlabos | 0 comments »

I picked up a Rockwell 37-600 jointer on craigslist for $50 not too long ago and I never got around to adding it to the blog so here it is…This is what i got from the buyer. He was even nice enough to deliver it to me. When I got it a checked for flatness and listened to the motor and cutter bearings. All sounded good enough. I was thinking about sanding and painting for a complete restore. After cleaning the rust off the fence and tables and doing some wet sanding I was plea...

Current Project #3: 1st Real Picture Frame

08-28-2014 07:43 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

Another house project. We’ve wanted to frame a large piece of my daughter’s artwork. The cost of frames is a bit higher than me making one out of an old drawer front found on the curb. I’ll be doing the matting as well—a new skill to be acquired!

FANTASY MARQUETRY #7: Another Marquetry Process

08-28-2014 06:49 PM by stefang | 11 comments »

I didn’t get much done today on my wizard marquetry, but what I did do maybe brings up an interesting topic, sand shading. A disclaimer here as I have only tried sand shading once before and it didn’t turn out very well, but it is a subject worth discussing because it also has a lot to do with how the marquetry is cut and that is my main point here. As you can see from the photo below the wizards hand has been cut out around each finger and a little less obvious also on the han...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #25: Main Project on hold!

08-28-2014 02:10 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El Niño, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...

In Praise of Cigar Boxes

08-28-2014 01:51 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

“I’m a smoker only when I’m on fire…” -Anonymous I have an affinity for cigar boxes. Not only are they intrinsically attractive, but they provide an excellent method of organizing and storing hardware, small parts, accessories, and tools in the workshop. The nicer ones – those made of finished wood complete with hinges and hasps, are reserved for sets of small tools. Most importantly, they are in compliance with the handsawgeek’s stringent ‘Hand Tool Only / No Plastics Zone’ ...

Snowfall Castle Wooden Sign #1: A Ski Lodge Wooden Sign, Lazy River Studio

08-28-2014 12:49 PM by Scott | 2 comments »

For my first blog entry, I will pick up with a new wood sign project I just started. This is a custom wooden sign for a vacation home in the mountains of UT. The sign will have a banner and an area for logo / art. My process is one part machining and a second part hand carving. Its an interesting fusion. The name of the home is called “snowfall castle”. Thanks for looking, Scott. Lazy River Studio. www.lazyriverstudio.com https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/nb0otnt.jpg

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1390: Ready to Cut my New SLEIGH!

08-28-2014 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I have to admit that the past couple of weeks have not been easy. Please understand that I am NOT whining about things, but I haven't been feeling my usual self and as a designer, that affects just about everything that I do. The closing of the magazines has really taken a toll on me. It is getting better each day, but I feel as if I would be lying to you all if I put on a front when I wrote here each day and acted as if I wasn't affected. After all, for nearly seventeen years I ...

Hand Plane restoration

08-28-2014 07:53 AM by skidooraceing | 3 comments »

I do not get on here very often but when I do I really enjoy reading and seeing what everyone else does with hand planes and wood working. I wanted to post some pictures of my first ever hand plane restoration. My first was plane was not one with very much value so if I messed up it would not be a big deal. I had bought about ten rusty planes at an auction for like $40 dollars so that I could fix them up and use them. One of the planes was a Trustworthy and believe its a no. 4 (Stanley ...
