Trip to Craftsman Farms

05-14-2011 03:04 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

Took advantage of a drive back from New York to stop at Craftsman Farms. I was with another person and couldn’t stay until the Stickley Museum opened. I did get to gaze into some of the windows. Saw a cool couch/settle. Saw a Morris Chair (I am in love with these chairs). The grounds are well kept up. I will go back when I take another trip to NY.

cool jigs

06-21-2011 02:39 PM by randyb | 1 comment »

Last weekend I help a friend do some custom home improvement work, (sorry no photos). We had to do some dadoes and other little tricky techniques to make it strong enough to hold a heavy appliance. He had done this kind of work before but only having a few hand tools and an old radial arm saw, he was in need of some help. My shop seems to find this kind of work the most, which to be truthful scores big karma points. I really love doing project where you get to show off your skills and use you...

DIY Woodsculpting show...looking for info

07-07-2011 02:00 AM by darkhollow | 1 comment »

A few years back I was filmed for an episode of the series “Woodsculpting” on the “Do-It-Yourself (DIY) network. I didn’t hear anything about it and figured it had not aired. earlier this year I noticed that the episode had been aired, and was to air again soon. unfortunately, I cannot get the DIY network on my cable, so I have never seen it. In fact, they don’t use my name or show a picture of my on the website, and the description on the DIY website of how I made spoons di...

Harmonica case #4: How to grout wood

09-01-2011 04:49 PM by gurnie | 0 comments »

I realized I never explained how I got the grout “look” to work with the harmonica case, so i thought i’d take the time to post photos to show you the process. Here’s an image of the wood, pre-grouted. if you look at my last blog entry, you can see how I was able to chisle away the wood for the brick pattern. In this photo you can see the tightbond 3 glue (which dries darker than regular tightbond), a collection of maple dust, a cup, tooth picks, and kabob s...

Guitar 02 #1: Top and rosette

09-17-2011 03:03 AM by joseff | 5 comments »

Well, here is the start of my second guitar project. I imagined this second guitar before I even finished the first one. Outline of the top Marking the rosette channels. My method is a bit crude, although this one is better than the popsicle stick I used for the first guitar. A fellow LJ posted a project, a marking tool, that gave me an idea for a circle cutter. I will ask him if I could adapt his simple, yet beautiful design. Routed the channel using a small router planeTwenty-s...

Modern Woodworkers Association

10-17-2011 10:29 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 3 comments »

As many of you know a group of us Georgia woodworkers have gotten together a few times over the summer and had a great time. It is a great group of guys and I really enjoy us talking and learning from each other. So far we have met at different locations with no regularly scheduled dates. It is difficult to keep this going as I will tend to procrastinate until last minute which is what I did this last meeting. In the end there were only four of us but many other keep asking to be left...

post glue clean-up w/carpenters glue.

11-16-2011 05:42 PM by Randolph Torres | 1 comment »

There are many ways to remove carpenters glue squeez-out hopefully w/o causing problems by reducing strenth of the joint. I found a way even in tight places to remove squeez-out. Use a stiff natural bristle 1/2” paint brush, dry. If you have a lot of glue mabe use several brushes, the brush does exactly what it was designed for by capilary action wicking up the glue then just wash the brush with water when done.

Workshop Progress #2: Workshop Progress #2

12-02-2011 12:23 AM by WRAAdesign | 1 comment »

As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted abov...

12-19-2011 02:29 AM by Lance | 1 comment »

Well my birthday is coming up on the 5th of January and I had planned on buying the Ridgid Oscillating Spindle sander since the reviews are fantastic. This past week I started making the plans to my Flip Top Cart I was going to start this weekend with the planner and sander. It was slow at work on Friday so I went to the Laguna Tools website and saw that the Resaw King on sale, 25% off which I thought was a good deal, I don’t own a Laguna nor a band saw but I thought what the heck, I...
