Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

6 days ago by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime‚Ķ here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...

Getting my tools ready #15: Rehabbed Delta 18" C Arm Scroll Saw...it's done!

6 days ago by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

This has been a learning experience in what not to do. LOL! Saw this scroll saw for 75 bucks on Craigslist. Drove to the house down dusty country roads and I blogged earlier about this saw requiring a couple hours of fixing the clamp to see it cut wood! Then I drove home in a snow storm. The first picture is how the saw looked in January! The second picture is how the rusted table looked. I got some suggestions from Blackie (Randy) regarding about using apple cider vinegar to rem...

Shop safety

7 days ago by Michaelgurrado | 7 comments »

Let me start off by saying I am generally very cautious and careful when it comes to operating my tools. I like to make sure my hands are always in a safe area and my ears and eyes are protected. Today while I was working in my shop I was needed to use my router to rout out a rabbet. For some really dumb and irresponsible reason I had a T-shirt underneath my work piece. I guess my reasoning behind it was to have kind of a grip for the work piece. Like I said this was a very dumb and irrespons...

60,000,000 Year-Old Stalagmite Display Stand #2: The process has begun

7 days ago by OttoH | 3 comments »

It has taken a lot of design work, but the stand build for the stalagmite is under way. One of the biggest problems to overcome was the uneven contour on the back of the stalagmite, I decided to build a cradle for it out of reinforced concrete. I will then set the concrete cradle into the back of the stand to securely hold the stalagmite in place. I put a bed sheet folded in half on the back of the stalagmite, put a 12 by 24 inch 2×4 form down, lined it with heavy duty plastic, then m...

A Strategy for Woodworking #9: We Forget

7 days ago by Gary Rogowski | 2 comments »

We forget that the moon is out. We forget that rivers run underneath us. We forget that we can make things with our hands and heart.We believe that the world is now held in the palm of our hands. It is instead all around us. We just have to look up and notice it.Remember to remain curious. Believe that you don’t have the only way of doing things. Keep open to change. Forgive yourself your mistakes and keep doing good work. The Northwest Woodworking Studio

New Shop - from the ground , up. #6: Finishing work - things really do slow down!

7 days ago by curliejones | 6 comments »

A little shop update and a BIG question??Here’s a couple of pics of the latest progress. Fiber cement siding on two sides and I’ll start sheet metal on other two today. I’ve been relegated to shortened workdays with the heat of summer upon me, but I have managed to paint almost all the inside surfaces white (OSB) an hour or two at a time. The windows and exhaust fan are all in and I’ve built frames for and hung a couple of passage doors and the roll-ups are o...
