My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1778: A Wild and Crazy Start to the Week

09-19-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

OK – so it hasn't been that 'wild and crazy'. But it is barely 10am here and I feel as if I have put in nearly a full day already. All my mail is organized, my desk is clean, and the mail is just about ready to go out the door. It is a good start to the week. I also already have been to the gym this morning. While I am not one of those people who feels the need to report every time I go to the gym, I find that today it was somewhat significant. I have been playing '...

Again with the Dutch tool chest... #2: Breadboard ends

09-19-2016 05:47 AM by Fraxinus | 0 comments »

Spent an inordinate amount of time on the lid of the Dutch tool chest this weekend. I glued up the panel a few days ago but left it in the clamps with the intention of spending a day preparing it for the breadboards (cutting to final size, flattening) and putting the breadboards on it. Panel is Ponderosa pine, breadboard ends are Douglas-fir. Didn’t quite finish yesterday, so took a couple hours today and finished up. It was a learning experience. These are my first breadboard en...

Turkey adventuressummer 2016 It has been a wonderful summer this year, a long one, spend most of it in Turkey, in our little place by the sea, woodworking has not been there too much, partly because we were busy settling in and playing in the water or hanging out in the hammock with good books and a cold beer. But I will share a little of the joy along with the little woodworking and inspiration. This is the hide out, a stone throw from the sea in South West Turkey.We have rented this p...

Shop stuff #57: 1950's Record #4 Rehab

09-18-2016 01:52 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, this turned into a long one. I bought an Record #4 smoothing plane and reconditioned it back into a health as a gift to my son. He is just getting into woodworking after spending some time in my shop with me so I figured I would promote the addiction. Took a long time to edit and a long time to upload. Rural internet speeds here are not very fast….lol. I should have specified that the Dremel has a cotton cone shaped buff on it and not a stone. View on YouTube

09-18-2016 01:26 PM by Bob Casey | 2 comments »

I love working with exotics and hardwood, but some times you need some pine for projects for craft shows. SO WHAT HAS HAPPENED? I go to the big box store you know who they are and they have this composite S—- they call whiteboard they are passing off. Anybody in Syracuse or central New York still selling PINE?

A little break in the House Renovation Action, so there was an opportunity to Work on something I’ve been building in my head for the last six months or so…I’ve had a designated ‘Work Box’ for a number of years, a box for storing personal things in at Work… My first one, I out-grew, and so I simply grabbed one that was ‘kicking around… This one is the right size for the Job, but has drawbacks… #1) It barely fits through my Locker Door (...

Trestle Table #12: Next Steps: Cut Tenons Using Twin Blade Joinery Method

09-17-2016 09:37 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I began work in my shop this morning by squaring up the corners or ends of these router bit made mortises. As you can see I have an Irwin Marples 3/8” or 10 mm hand chisel as well as a Robert Sorby mortising chisel in the same size 3/8” or 10 mm. For this blog entry I am writing what I plan to do next instead of writing briefly what I did in my shop. Maybe this way I will be more thorough and clear of what my steps will be. I subscribe to Woodcraft Magazine. I lov...
