Spent the day at an estate auction. Was a good day. Black Walnut 320 bd ft. sold for $175. Cherry Sold for $.35 bd ft. White Ash sold for $.25 bd ft.

Workbench Build #7: First attempt (ever) at hand cut dovetails....

1182 days ago by JL7 | 6 comments »

Not much of an update here – but I will start by saying…...I have contemplated many ways of building this bench without dovetailing the apron into the end caps…..but of course I WANT this essentail feature so invested part of my tax return into a proper saw, and now I am committed. I picked up the Lie-Nielsen saw and and as most of you know, it is amazing the difference it makes in cut control. Before that…....I cut the dado’s into the end caps and they fit t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #408: Mind over Matter

1137 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I added a short video to my scroll sawing class lesson. I was kind of amazed that even though the video is only just over five minutes, it took me over half the day to do. I say ‘kind of’ because one wouldn’t think that something that short should take so long to accomplish. Especially when you see the quality. Not that it is really ‘bad’ mind you. I think it gets the point across Ok, but it isn’t really something that I would call ‘fa...

Yet Another Workshop Blog #2: Fear, Loathing and Failure

1123 days ago by Manitario | 5 comments »

It’s difficult working on a shop when it is 400 miles away. I’m only working in the city where my new house is for 7 days a month, so time has been short in trying to get the wiring, insulating and finishing done between shift work. Had all the electrical roughed in and 2/3 of the insulating and vapour barrier up…and then the electrician stopped by. The plan was to get a separate 100 amp service put into the garage due to some difficulty getting a line from the house to t...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

1064 days ago by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...

Rocking Chair Build #5: Starting to shape the seat

1049 days ago by Topapilot | 3 comments »

I threw caution to the wind and took my new Kutzall to my seat. Most of this is by eye, which is a leap of faith for me, but I think it might turn out ok in the end. I strongly suggest doing all of this work outside! I moved in later when the sun was on me and now my shop is covered in dust. I felt I had one “good” side, and one less good, so I made a template of the good side and transferred the shape to the other side. And I saved the template… Much san...

Refurbish Powermatic Table Saw #5: Finishing Up: Repairing the Fence and A New Push Stick

1034 days ago by bch | 6 comments »

The fence, having been stored outside in a shed for two years, had dried out and the two side boards had shrunk enough that both boards had fallen off while transporting it home. The bumper rail was also separating from the ends and would not stay down with just a press-fit as intended. I chose to glue the ends of the bumper down with CA glue, only at the ends where it was separating: After the glue dried I enlisted my assistant to dismantle the lever for cleaning, rust removal, ...
