Workshop in Progress #3: My new tool: Kreg Master System

06-19-2008 01:19 AM by jstewart | 5 comments »

I just got home from my visit to the ER followed by a stay in a hospital bed. That was not very enjoyable. Neither were to two days leading up to the decision to go to the ER at 9:30 Tuesday night. However, when I got home today, I found that Amazon had delivered my new Kreg Master System. I can’t wait to put it to work. (I’ll have to wait a while since I’m not back to 100% quite yet.) Once I get some good use with this tool, I’ll try to remember to post a re...

Would this qualify as junk recycled wood?

07-12-2008 06:43 AM by GaryK | 32 comments »

A lot of you probably have noticed that I havn’t been posting a lot lately. Well after 10 days in europe I have only being able to post every once in a while when I got the chance. Look like I have less then 20 days to make something for the summer awards contests. I was wondering if you guys (and gals) thought if this would qualify as junk recycled wood? I was in a machine shop about a month ago and they had just got a new machine from some place in Asia. It came packed in a crat...

Constructing "Old 99" #3: A bumpy ride.

08-27-2008 01:59 PM by MrWoody | 4 comments »

Unfortunately I got involved in the next part and forgot to take pictures. The camera is now in the shop. I’ll do my best to explain what I did.After re-reading this, I decided that even I couldn’t understand what I did, so I used a piece of scrap poplar and made the cuts so I could take pictures. Back to page 2 of the plans. I mentioned earlier that a piece needed to be fit between the turned boiler and the base. On page 3 there is another piece that needs to fit on top of the boiler. To s...

Been a while since the last post on this project ( been working on the crib ). But I decided to bead the opeings on the face frame and finally got that part done. Got all the drawer box’s made finally. I need to cut notches for and drill the holes for the blum motion undermount slides and they will be rady to go into the case. I’ll be making the base this week and getting it on hopefully. And I’ll get started milling the lumber for the drawer fronts and the door...

Lolling Chair progress

11-26-2008 06:00 AM by matt garcia | 6 comments »

Well I thought I’d have this thing finished, ready for upholstery today, but man this thing has been a challenge!! Well at least I got all the parts built, and fitted, and finally glued. I’ve started sanding the left arm and got all the joints flush. Next will be the right arm, then the outer parts of the legs. Then once I finish that, I’ll go over it one more time with 220 grit, then apply a finish, then upholstery. Wish me luck on upholstery, I’ll need it!! Af...

Pen Turners' Swap - Round 3 #9: How much wood would a CanadianWoodChuck chuck???

12-21-2008 09:03 PM by itsme_timd | 15 comments »

We’re about to find out! Man, I really got discombobulated on this last trip, The box made it from Scott to Ned without me updating the blog and then I forgot to tag the last entry as part of the series so you can see Ned’s update here. Now, the box should be on it’s way to CanadianWoodChuck, in Canada, of course! I think the timing on this couldn’t have been better as I know we’ll all be busy around Christmas and the New Year so it’s a great time t...

Sawstop on EBAY in Santa Cruz, CA

01-09-2009 05:05 PM by Scott Bryan | 2 comments »

Here is a listing on EBAY for a Sawstop in Santa Cruz County, CA. It has 9 days to go in the bidding but at $2700 for a starting bid this is a “steal” on the saw which would run over $4000 new. This might be one worth watching for anyone on the West Coast who is contemplating a new saw.

Man thinks,God laughs

02-19-2009 09:18 AM by kiwi1969 | 7 comments »

My old boss once told me that “man thinks, God laughs” Well I have to say right about now the Big guy must be thinking i,m just hysterical. In my last blog I related the tale of how things had gone from bad to worse here in the Philippines ( sad violin music optional) and how business wise it just didn,t happen.Well all I can say about this year is it has been more of the same. None of my plans have gotten off the ground, I was supposed to have my workbench completed by now and a ...

Shop done. Let's build something #3: Cabinet shell

03-08-2009 11:57 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Again in my series of building a corner cabinet. Today I got the shell built and some shelves made. I used some poplar plywood for the shell (back) and some pine to frame it in behind the oak face. Then I mounted the face to it. It’s 42” tall, 24” wide on the front and each side is about 17” Now all that’s left is the doors, so it will be awhile till my next post. I’ve got to make a test one first in pine as it’s my first time. The cabinet front mo...
