My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1408: The Early Bird Gets the Worm

09-24-2014 09:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After a very busy day yesterday, I got a very early start this morning. I can't say that it happened because I am overly ambitious or anything so noble as that, but my dear cat Coco decided at 4:15 that I had enough sleep and it was high time I get up and feed her a decent meal. She chose to quietly but persistently scrape at my closed bedroom door until I finally gave in and decided to get up. After all – it was close to my usual time of waking. Close enough that I knew I woul...

Woodworking For Therapy #21: No I Didn't Die!

09-24-2014 05:59 AM by Steve Kreins | 16 comments »

I know a few of you were waiting for an invitation to my funeral. Sorry, but you’ll have to find another excuse to have a party. ;) I have been getting back into making saw dust over the past couple of weeks and I think I’m actually back among the living (living Lumber Jocks that is). I found a new place here in Waco to eat,Jake’s on Austin Ave. It’s great! Maybe I can gain back some of that 90 pounds I’ve lost. I also think the food at Jake’s is kil...

Joints #2: How to shorten timber using a tenoning Jig

09-24-2014 04:33 AM by robscastle | 6 comments »

I was reading a post by Partickhosey showing a joint he made and the associated comments regarding its strength and durability. The joint looked like one I could try, if only to work out how to make it. I started off with some rubbish timber jointed it square and set to work Its obviously a half lap joint so I cut them in with the table saw With that done marked out where the four tenons would fit. Returned to the table saw and cut the four entry points in This i...

Mini hand tool cabinet #4: Hand-cut finger joints

09-24-2014 12:00 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

Well, I finally worked up the nerve to finish preparing the panels I glued up in the last entry. I was worried that removing any residual twist/cup/bow from the panel glue-ups would result in very thin panels. I discovered that once I ripped the panels in half (one half for each of the door and wall-mounted component of the cabinet) that there was very little flattening to do on the narrower boards. A bit of hand planing on one face, followed by thickness planing (same method as shown in this...

New Shop building! #8: ...AIR! Gasp! I need AIR!

09-23-2014 10:06 PM by JoeinGa | 5 comments »

Back in 10aSEE I put my air compressor on the inside of the shop. It was in a corner and pretty much out of the way. I wasn’t always pleased with the noise, but at least it was out of the weather. And when I got ahold of an old compressor tank (freebie) to double my air capacity, I hung the extra tank using chains up in the rafters right above the compressor. . .But this new building is smaller than the old one (by almost 400sf) and the ceilings are just barely 8’ high, so I c...

I Am The Very Model Of A Well Dressed Individual

09-23-2014 07:02 PM by handsawgeek | 4 comments »

“Never go shopping at the BORG while wearing an orange shirt.” -handsawgeek Ever since I have made the transition to working in a traditional wood shop setting with traditional hand tools, I deemed it fitting that I should have a traditional shop apron, as well. Since Mrs. handsawgeek is an accomplished seamstress, she was asked if she could assist with this. Engineering specifications for the apron were drawn up and presented: Calf length, shoulder straps that cross in the back,...
