Powermatic Model 15 Planer refurb--vintage 1995 #2: Power cords don't really need they?

09-29-2010 03:37 AM by Retseih | 6 comments »

After close examination of the power cord on my “new” planer…I discovered that while the cord itself is an impressive 15 feet long it seems to lack continuity in the insulation. I’m not sure if the previous owner ran over it several times with the “beast” thereby chewing the insulation to shreds or if it was used to power the lights of a puppy mill. No need to bother the prior owner for the “I don’t remember” response. Not a big deal as...

Glass table #3: Messed up

04-21-2016 04:12 PM by Andymac7 | 2 comments »

This week is half over and I just realized that what I’ve been doing so far this week has been a waste of my time. I found out today that I was using the wrong piece for the legs. So all the measuring and cutting I did to get them to the right size was pointless

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

my freaking equilateral bench #3: Tge procedure

04-26-2016 11:52 AM by Klingensmith63 | 3 comments »

So I started cutting down all my peices for my bench and found out I needed 10 more inches of 2X4 so I gotta make my way back to the store for another plank. I also hand sawed the 1/2in metal rods that are supposed to help assemble the bench in the end.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...

What’s happening in the shop for November 26, 2010 . Very busy in the shop. Black Friday when most people are gearing up for Christmas, we are stopping our orders. With a 4-5 week back log, there is no other way to fit things into the schedule. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live:

choosing what is right for you #6: Jigs. Jigs, and more Jigs.

05-04-2016 09:36 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 4 comments »

There is no question about it, ‘at some point during our trek into the world of wood working we are going to need some sort of jig, whether it is a temporary one or a permanent go to Jig. Of course if you google it, you no doubt will get flooded with every type of jig imaginable, go to you tube and you find find countless video’s to build all sorts of nifty jigs. In my wood working most of my jigs are temporary jigs. Pending on what you your self are doing you may need more than o...

Prometheus Transformed #3: Belated update

12-10-2010 06:27 AM by thewoodartist | 3 comments »

With the month of November devoted to NaNoWriMo, my time in the shop has been limited lately. Nevertheless, I have managed to get a bit more done. Prometheus is a somewhat military guy, so his “robot” facade includes some typical military images. For example, he has participated in a number of famous battles and campaigns. Of course they were back in the early Greek days, but nonetheless, he was there. As befitting his experience, his “chest” includes a rather i...
