From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!

06-04-2016 06:08 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...

8 year old granddaughter in the shop

04-17-2011 06:37 AM by Bearpie | 20 comments »

My younger daughter and family came to visit and stay a few days. I thought about what to do to keep them busy and occupied. I sent a PM to Sheila (Scrollgirl) asking for a suggestion appropriate for an 8 year old girl. I racked my mind and the internet searching for a project simple and interesting enough to keep her interest. Sheila answered in a few days as she was on her “Odyssey” for 3 weeks and included a lovely pattern of a bunny bowl to be cut on a scrollsaw. Since Easter ...

Past and Present Projects #1: Picture slide show

06-19-2016 10:29 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #80: A Quickie!

07-01-2016 10:07 PM by PhilBello | 15 comments »

Last month we had an uninvited guest in the house, I freely admit when it comes to snakes, I am a total coward, fortunately I was out, when my wife found it whilst cleaning, and a neighbour dealt with it. I honestly have no idea what snakes we have here, so don’t know if this was poisonous or not, just that it was a meter or so long. Construction work has started again below us on the mountain, so once again, snakes will be on the move. I know the time will come when it is my turn to...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #10: Assembling the mortising machine

05-24-2011 02:52 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

Most reviews of the assembly complain about how hard it is to get the cylinder compressed. I think it comes “sticky” and when I leaned on it a couple of times I freed it up and it was easier to move. That wasn’t the hardest part of this. The hardest part of the assembly was carrying the machine down to the basement. That took two weeks. Really it only took my 19-year old son five minutes, but that’s how long I had to wait for him to come over (finals at college were...

Getting large black oak tree removed - looking for someone wanting wood

07-07-2016 12:10 PM by nita | 16 comments »

I was told that it would be best to remove my large old black oak tree, but I’d like to find someone that could use the wood for woodworking or firewood. I’m getting quotes from tree trimmers to remove it. It currently has one limb that snapped off from the top that is hanging down and needs removal.

Crate Wood Creations #1: Furniture for Friends

07-13-2016 05:25 AM by BRobins | 1 comment »

I have recently starting scratching the itch that has been the desire to finally get into woodworking. I have wanted to do this for a long time, but never had the opportunity to really start until recently. Some friends of ours moved into a new house and were needing some furniture. They had seen some projects on Pinterest made from crates and were going to ask someone else to make them, but I saw my opportunity and jumped on it. There began the journey into many YouTube videos and trip...
