Back to work on the project today after our thursday shopping excursion and getting a check up at the doctor (us old folks do a lot of that). After completing all the blanks for the basket components on Wednesday, I used today to get the side blanks ready for cutting and to gluing up the bottom pieces. Steps in preparing the sides for stack cutting The stacks of side blanks, 4 to each stack were carefully aligned and temporarily clamped with masking tape prior to pinning them toge...

NOT your average Screen Door: Assembly time

10-17-2014 06:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #10: Table Saw Base: The Saga Continues

10-17-2014 12:31 PM by technoslick | 4 comments »

Yesterday started out wet, as was the day before it, but the temperature was high enough I could be comfortable outdoors in a short sleeve shirt. I decided to move a couple of portable benches upstairs on the enclosed back porch to see if I could get more done on the table saw base. At that point, all I had together was the base framing, which comprised of four 2” x 4” pieces half-lap joined, glued and screwed together. I decided on building the framing longitudinally because I w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1424: Making "Pretties"

10-17-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I know that I haven't been blogging as regularly as usual. There have been some things going on that have just sort of gotten in the way. Part of it was because I have been fighting a cold and it has taken its toll on me a little. I don't have my usual energy and I have been working at a slower pace and sometimes I feel like it is best to get to my daily tasks rather then take the time to write about them. I speak often about how busy we have become, and I certainly appreciate th...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #5: Drawer Front Marquetry Assembly

10-17-2014 01:10 AM by shipwright | 32 comments »

With all the cutting and sand shading done and all the pieces properly organized, it’s time to have some fun. If you’ve done everything right up to this point, the assembly really is fun as you get to see the marquetry image materialize before your eyes. Before I get into that however, a couple of notes on things I’ve learned so far on this project. The first is the eyesight / cutting accuracy issue that I had when started using this hard veneer. I did a little resear...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 12 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Current Project #15: Chair II

10-16-2014 06:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Two views of the second prototype for my chair. This one is made from particle board and is completely glued together. I’m going to use it at the supper table for a few days and see if it’s uncomfortable. I already incorporated one change into this chair, the front stile will have the seat run out on top of it. The original design had the seat more or less as a shallow tray, a little hard on the legs without a cushion. Also a reminder, I have to build a cajon now, so we&#...

WOW....Cook Woods

10-16-2014 04:48 PM by OldWrangler | 5 comments »

WOW!!! Cook Woods in Oregon recently had a sale, a kinda reverse auction. Prices kept getting lower by the day. By the end of the week all the good stuff had been bought. Being the “Wood Ho” that I am I ordered several pieces of plain Myrtle. I have never worked with Myrtle so at these prices why not try some. They came in quickly and as I thought, they were pretty plain but I can use them for accent or contrast pieces. So this morning I re sawed a piece in half and loo...
