Favorite Old Tool(s) #8: Grandfathers' Tools Pt. 2

09-16-2007 12:48 AM by Paul | 3 comments »

All maternal grandfather’s, except the rosewood square which belonged to paternal grandfather A suggestion – if you inherit old tools and also enjoy picking up old tools at flea markets, etc. – either keep your family tools strictly separated or mark them with a sticker or make and keep an inventory list. You think you will remember which ones are “family,” but as you age . . . I’m very happy I wrote out an inventory list when these came into my possess...

"After-Effects of Snow...." --by RusticWoodArt

12-04-2007 01:40 PM by frank | 6 comments »

After-Effects of Snow…. ....what can I add that these picture do not show-tell-speak forth them-selves….? I knew this one was coming so I had already closed the place up here on the outside, in regards to waiting on an icy breath of winters best. One must understand that it’s not the snow I have a problem dealing with, but the time spent on cleaning up after all the flakes of snow have had their party. So after having spent the day yesterday staying ahead of the storm,...

Woodworking/Pottery Studio #1: Shop Update: 02/29/08

03-01-2008 04:46 AM by Stacey | 2 comments »

Hi everyone,I’m posting an update to my shop progress. I now have moved all my equipment and tools in (they aren’t setup yet though) and have almost completed all the interior electrical work. I still have to run a trench from the main house to the shop and run a power line which I hope to do this weekend. I have about half the siding up and will hopefully get to work on the rest next week. A 9’x10’ corner of the shop will be used for my wife’s pottery studio...

Learning the hard way

04-11-2008 05:46 PM by dalec | 16 comments »

I had an accident with my dado blade yesterday. I set up the dado to cut a test. As it turned out, I did not tighten down the retaining nut tight enough, so when I ran my short test cut, I heard this unusal sound and thought I had the blade too high and lowered it and made another cut. Once I was done with the test dado cut, I noticed the dado cut had several ridges in the bottom. I then looked at the dado blade and saw that the chippers had shifted and on closer inspection, the chippers h...

Son of Biscuit!

04-27-2008 01:05 AM by pashley | 8 comments »

I was planing down some 8” wide 4/4 oak stock, and since I only have a 6” jointer, figured I could run it thru the planer, and it would eventually come out flat. I got down to about 3/4” and of course, it wasn’t. DOH! Not wanting to thin the boards down even more, I thought biscuits would make everything pretty darn flat – at least enough to let me sand it flat. It seems as though it will. I have the whole 33” square piece in clamps right now..seem...

Today I've bit the bullet...

05-21-2008 03:59 PM by SteveKorz | 16 comments »

Today I finally ordered my new Rikon 10-325 14” Deluxe Bandsaw. Woodcraft said it would take 7-14 days for it to come in. Seems weird spending so much money for something you don’t have… lol. I read Dick Cain's review, and I was sold (by the way, Dick, thanks for that awesome review!). I’ve wanted a bandsaw for years, but I’ve never gotten around to getting one. The price has went up since Dick’s review, I’m assuming metal and fuel costs. I...

Gamble Entry table #3: It's comming along...

06-19-2008 03:35 AM by abie | 8 comments »

I’ve been busy making the parts fit sanding and then staining with Red Mahagony….Lyptus turned out darker than I imagined but it is cool.. The bread boards were also Lyptus but a darker hue.. so the contrast was fine.The Box joints were cut using an Incra jig as did David M… and I cut another set with traditional hand saw as my instructor wanted.. I can’t tell the difference. Splines on the breadBoards were tricky as the dado blade does not account for warpage and mi...

RESTART to Starting Your Business #3: Advertising 101 - What You Should Know

08-02-2008 08:58 PM by Ad Marketing Guy - Bill | 0 comments »

Mention what you do for a living, sit back and watch the questions come, right! I believe if you tell people what you do to make a living and they never ask ”how, why”, or the always infamous, ” I was thinking . . ..”, YOU should consider changing fields or possibly you have a very boring job. I am constantly asked about advertising; what works, what is good, and even why should a company advertise. I always tell clients you must . . .read more >>
