Shop storage projects #6: Working on the storage dresser

01-10-2017 07:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Muddle through a bit more with that Stanley #45…..wasn’t quite right. But.. I had these four to get done, somehow. Came up with the idea that IF I drilled a hole where the tenons will be, I could then attach the part to the side of the bench, so the fence wouldn’t hit anything along the way… needed to countersink for the screws. Tried a few more times with the 45… Things still weren’t quite right. Tenons were cut on the few blanks I did get ...

Hoosier restoration #1: A Hoosier Cabinet from the 1920' or 1930's needs some restoration.

01-10-2017 03:55 PM by makeBrooklyn | 2 comments »

In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1811: The Comfort of Routine

01-10-2017 02:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

The older I get, the more I seem to enjoy the concept of 'familiarity'. I will follow up that sentence with stating that I do NOT feel "that old". (Really!)  I think that lately, though, the things that have come up unexpectedly have not exactly been things that I consider as 'pleasant'. I know that has nothing whatsoever to do with age, but for some reason, these days I don't feel quite as resilient as I have in the past. Is this due to circumstan...

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #15: First raised panels (ever)

01-10-2017 01:35 AM by Mainiac Matt | 6 comments »

Well this was a little nerve racking, but it seems to have turned out OK. After cutting a couple test pieces and adjusting the set up, I produced my first ever raised panel. I cut these in one pass and got just a little burn on one of the long edges… Here’s the router table set up… I used 1/4” scrap Masonite for a zero clearance sacrificial fence… The panel had already been sanded and the thickness was no longer perfectly uniform, and I thi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1810: Back to Blogging . . .

01-09-2017 03:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I realize it has been a long time since I posted a blog. To be honest with you all, it has been a rough couple of months. After losing my dear kitty and constant companion Pancakes suddenly early in December, the following week my other kitty Richard became gravely ill. The vet seems to think that his illness was triggered by the stress of losing Pancakes. Cats are very sensitive creatures. The combination of Pancakes just 'disappearing' and me being grief-stricken was something that ...

Tool Restoration #7: Old Hand Saw New Handle

01-09-2017 04:22 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

I have had this hand saw for quite a long time, and although it has no brand name it always cuts well.When I was using it some time ago the plastic handle cracked, as it was worth saving then I glued it back together with CA glue and plastic filler dust, it worked again so its life continued. That was up to yesterday when I was cutting up some PVC pipe throw outs, it broke again If you are wondering what I was I doing with a load of PVC offcuts I was making some PVC nursery bed for...

Shopmade Lutherie Tools #14: 2 chisels rehandled

01-09-2017 02:24 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I had two chisels without handles. The flatter one is from of old. It was from my dad’s stuff. It’s purpose when I was growing up was to pry open the old ‘extra’ refrigerator we had in the basement. The handle of the fridge had broken somewhere in my pre-history. The handle on the chisel was clear yellow plastic. The plastic broke some years ago when I was using the chisel to do chisel stuff. Surprise! It lived for some time in one of my tool boxes, handleless...
