Hello Everyone.

09-19-2007 06:46 AM by Jim Earl | 8 comments »

Well we finally got moved and just today, got our internet hooked up. I haven’t really been doing much as far as any burnings, still trying to find everything. We still have about a jillion boxes to go through and unpack to find our stuff, but in time we will get going again.I wont be on here everyday, so be patient and I will be back on here soon enough. This whole moving bit is for the birds. It really did a job on me. So Hope to hear from you all, and I will be back. ...

My Bunk-bed project #3: Drawers

10-17-2007 04:06 AM by woodshopbob | 2 comments »

Well all the drawers are done! They were very time consuming even though the pocket screws made this process a lot easier. Rather than use metal drawer slides ( WHICH ARE OUTRAGEOUS IN PRICE $13 SET ) I dadoed the sides to run on some hardwood runners using wood dowels as stops. There are a total of 8 drawers. And believe it or not every drawer ended up square each time I assembled one!

The Craftsman's Path #21: Queen Anne Side Table - Leg mortises, knee blocks and posts

01-04-2008 07:12 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I’ve been progressing on the legs for the Queen Anne Side Table. In my last post, I had shaped the feet and reworked the heel transitions on the legs. This left the tasks of adding and shaping the knee blocks, cutting the mortises and trimming the posts to final size to be done. There’s more on this with a bunch of pictures of the process in this post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

Cog Hill Golf Course...Update

03-04-2008 02:21 AM by Catspaw | 4 comments »

Edit: It would appear I’ve either forgotten how to link these two blogs by editing them into a series or it’s not letting me. In either case, I thought I would do some editing here to provide a bit more context. I think it was appropriate to provide this second blog as a balance. It occurred to me that I didn’t want this to be a rant. It was intended to show a project for the perusal of this audience as a curiousity and not to be some whining complaint. In the spiri...

The Router Table Saga #1: The setup

03-28-2008 05:42 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

I’m finally setting up a shop in the east half of our two-car garage. I’ve got some rudimentary tools and even more rudimentary skills and a whole lot of enthusiasm and a very understanding Wife, so I bought a router to add to the 20+ year old fixed base B+D router I have. (I will have to write a review of the Triton 2 1/4 horse router when I’ve put it through its paces). Working on our dining room table a chair set that a buddy of mine was making for us I asked him abo...

Hand Tools doings #15: Dovetails - Fit First Time!

04-14-2008 01:56 AM by Betsy | 10 comments »

OK – I know these are still not great—- but they fit the first time with NO paring. Still not the prettiest things you’ve ever seen – but I’m getting there. The difference I think is I’ve started using a coping saw to cut out the waste and instead of chopping out the remainder with the business end away from me—- I’m chopping with the board sideways on the bench so that I can tell if the chisel is vertical or not. My chisels are still a lo...

Woodworking Knowledge #5: Woodworking, DIY video rentals

04-30-2008 06:16 PM by flink | 4 comments »

Just another thing I discovered this morning. Netflix sucks for woodworking videos. Smartflix (found via Make Magazine's website) many on a variety of topics. Turning, carving, cabinetry, you name it.

Wood Whisperer

05-25-2008 06:36 PM by oakdust | 33 comments »

Is it just me or has the Wood Whisperer become commercial. I used to be able to go to the sight and watch videos where I learned new techniques, and how to tips to improve my woodworking. Now it seems when I go to the sight the videos are either commercials or are several weeks old. Don’t get me wrong Marc is an excellant woodworker but to me it seems his vision to help the woodworking community has changed.

Bradford Pear

06-22-2008 12:57 PM by Vinman | 4 comments »

I have a friend who cuts trees and recently he cut down a Bradford pear tree. The butt log is a bit over 6’ long and 22” in diameter and has a pink salmon color. The end grain almost looks like cherry except for the color. Is this wood good for woodworking? If anyone is interested in the log he wants $125 for the entire log. The log is near Cleveland, Ohio.

Coffee Table #1: Sketchup drawings, need some input

07-15-2008 05:37 AM by Sparky977 | 8 comments »

So I am going to try to build some furniture to sell when I don’t have cabinets to build. This is my first attempt at designing furniture. I would like to get some input on a couple aspects of this coffee table, if you guys don’t mind.I will be making matching end tables too, but I haven’t drawn them yet. I drew this on Google Sketchup. The plan is to make them out of Oak, and finish with black lacquer. I want the Oak grain to really stand out, and I think the lacquer w...
