Shop Notes #9: 2 steps forward and one step back.

02-28-2014 01:36 AM by DocSavage45 | 16 comments »

Working in the shop. Realized I’ve been pretty quiet. LOL! Posted a blog on my buddy Murphy who joins me just when things look like they are going well. He probably takes instant trips everywhere? Like your shop? LOL! Had to take the sign down my wife and I made after receiving a letter from my recent employer about my signing a non compete agreement. Took it to an attorney, who gave me the pragmatic facts. Court filings take ninety days. The agreement is all in their favor. Bot...

A Dying Chainsaw's Last Words #1: Carb Rebuild

04-22-2014 07:36 PM by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...

Got some pieces of the table saw cleaned up

05-16-2014 02:54 AM by jlabos | 6 comments »

So here are the wings all cleaned up. I worked with 100, 220, 500, 1000, and then 1200 grit sand paper. I wet sanded the gray painted area and it cleaned up well so I don’t think I will be painting them. I think that they will shine with some wax. There was one small area that I hand to sand down to the metal because there was some sticky gunk stuck to it. The insert had some deep scratches in it so I sanded it down and painted it. The blade guard cleaned up real nice. ...

Jewelry Case Build #10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish

07-01-2014 01:44 AM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I’m so close to finishing this little project. I looked back at the date on the beginning of this blog series and it’s nearly 70 days ago! Today I fussed with the little doors, getting them aligned as best as I can. There must be some trick to this that I’m missing, if anyone knows, please let me know! I had applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil a while ago so once the assembly was complete, I sanded everything to 360 grit. The fine sanding dust mixed with the BLO m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1381: Some Final Thoughts on All American Crafts

08-13-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Good morning to you all. I didn't get as much done as I intended yesterday. I have some ideas that I am working on, but there were simply too many distractions for me to make headway.I spent most of the day reading and discussing the closing of Creative Woodworks and Crafts and all of the All American Crafts publications. (Paintworks, Paint-It, Wood Turning Designs, Carving, Create and Decorate, etc.) While I mentioned in my post yesterday that I wanted to just move forward, I realized th...
