Craftsman Tablesaw tune-up #3: Progress has been made

04-18-2015 05:01 AM by B4B | 1 comment »

Update – With Pictures! So I ran into a problem with the original Shop Fox fence I ordered. No matter what I did to try and get it aligned it was toed into the blade. I called up technical support at Grizzly (after waiting on hold for about 30 minutes) they issued an RMA and exchanged the whole unit no questions asked. Once I get some hands-on time with this fence I’ll post a review of my initial impressions. . but it is definitely an upgrade to the original crappy fence tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1546: Haunted Carousel Central Pillar

05-04-2015 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend here in Nova Scotia. Finally we are seeing some warmer temperatures and are feeling the warmth of the sun. the grass is beginning to turn green again and the buds on the trees are finally, slowly emerging. Winter is definitely over. On Saturday Keith and I drove to Halifax. We had some errands to do and supplies to pick up, and I had someone look at my car to bid for some work that I need to have done on it. It is eleven years old now and while I have kept it i...

Cedar Cooler Box #8: Wall Panel : Part 3

05-07-2015 12:44 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So it’s time to Finnish off the last two panels … The back and the left side…. That completes the cooler part of the unit and I have to say it looks awesome the pics don’t do it justice.. These last 2 panels were constructed in the same way as the front and right side panel using the Kreg K4 to drill pocket holes and there all held together with the 1 1/4” self tapping screws… I have to admit this design I made took a lot of screws I think if ...

Shaker Table #3: Shaker table

05-11-2015 05:55 PM by MorganTanilli | 0 comments »

So far this week, I put together part of my shaker table. Although not finished yet, I was able to put together the majority of the table. The side and back rails are screwed on the legs and I also was able to start to put in my spacers. This process isn’t finished yet due to lack of class time, which only gave me enough time to glue the spacers on the side rails.

Hand Tool Cabinet - Start To Finish #1: Preparation

05-15-2015 02:15 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Now that my Jet 15” planer project is complete, my next dire need is a hand tool cabinet. This will be my first true wood working project utilizing both machine and hand tools, as this is a LONG overdue project. 2+ years since jumping into wood working, all my projects have been Home Depot lumber based (2×4’s, plywood, etc). It’s time to mature and expand my experience. I foresee using my Peachtree dinky HVLP sprayer for the first time, working with hardwood, doveta...

Chair One #6: A diversion

05-18-2015 06:17 AM by siavosh | 4 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted on my chair build. Truth of the matter is it hasn’t progressed very far. I had begun dimensioning some of the lumber I had ripped, but I was getting frustrated with not having a dedicated flat+true bench top. So I finally decided to build a planing beam out of some 2×4’s. It took a couple weekends, and it was nice not having the personal-pressures of having it come out “beautiful.” Trying my best to avoid knots on the ...

Thoughts On Working With Reclaimed Wood

05-21-2015 03:11 AM by michaelray | 4 comments »

Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...

One cool thing I saw at the Handworks event was this guy using a Treadle Spring Pole Lathe. His name is Jarrod Stone Dahl. I have a link to his website in the video’s description on YouTube. Anyway, I shot this very short video of him. I am also trying some new things with my YouTube videos. Please let me know what you like or don’t like about it! Thanks!Charlie View on YouTube
