Wanted HSS Router Bits and HSS 3 Wing Cutters.

12-17-2011 06:27 AM by FredRoman | 0 comments »

Hello All, I am in desperate need for HSS 3 wing cutters in multiple profiles and HSS router bits. I usually buy as many as I can find, due to custom grinding. I know I can find some on ebay, but I am trying to see if anyone had a set or 2 or 3 to sell. Thanks Fred P.S. Contact me at

My brothers and sisters here...

12-31-2011 01:07 PM by BigTiny | 10 comments »

May the peace and blessings of He who made us all be with you always. May your tools never be dull. May the grain always be even. May your finishes always go on smoothly and evenly. May your cutting lists always leave you with wood left over once the piece is done. May you always find the time to do wood work and may that time always bring you joy. I wish each and every one of you a safe, happy and prosperous new year. Paul

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #580: The Spice of Life

01-11-2012 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me well know that I am not a ‘random’ type of person. I generally like to keep everything pretty organized and when I do something, it is done systematically and orderly. I find that as my way to keep my busy life under control. I have always been somewhat like that. With that said, I realize that doing an assignment or project such as the one I am working on now is something if a stretch for me. It isn’t often that I do something that is on this...

My first drawbored joint

01-24-2012 06:25 AM by fissionchips | 9 comments »

I tried my hand at drawboring for the first time today, inspired by Peter Follansbee's hearty endorsement (skip to 10:00, and then 20:00 for the impatient). The project in question is a toolbox made from salvaged pine. I was pleased with how the mortised sides turned out, so I didn’t want to spoil the look with fasteners. Enter the drawbore: The perfect solution to cinch up those joints and make the pesky cracks disappear. As for the choice of peg material, split oak is common...

Drill Press

02-05-2012 07:13 PM by David Murray | 8 comments »

I finally got my drill press back from the “authorizied service center”. It only took 14 months to get it properly repaired. Even then a part was left off, not an important part but a part non-the-less. So instead of having it gone to the service center for who knows how long, I called Delta to have them send me the part and I would install it myself. This drill press (model 17-959L) is under warranty and as they have done in the past and sent minor parts to me free of charge they...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #617: What a Good Day!

02-18-2012 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was filled with fun and surprises! It was one of those days where I set out to accomplish some things and actually got everything done – and then some. It really made me feel so very fortunate to be doing what I am doing and living the kind of life I live. Sometimes I just like to take a breath and drink in the contentment. I spent most of the day working on my new project. While I had somewhat of an idea as to where I wanted to go with it, the vision of the finished pro...

Day to day life #9: Back in the shop

02-29-2012 12:04 PM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

After about two months I have now finished with my work in the house, painting walls, installing trim, so on and so forth. It has been very gratifying to get all of these projects completed, the house looks really good now and most importantly my wife loves it. Here are a few of the projects; When I was last working in the shop I had cut out most of the parts for Tom’s new bed before I had to put it on the back burner so that I could move our 19 year old back home from coll...

Rushing through the home repairs. #5: Walls sanded, trim mostly done. Where's the quarter round?

03-12-2012 01:55 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

So the drywall is patched, and sanded, colors are tested on the walls, and after several uh… lively discussions with LOML she agrees that the primary color I had initially wanted beats all the odd colors her sister has been suggesting. I know she means well, but her taste is a bit more formal than ours, and the colors just don’t go… I have the trim installed in the laundry room except for the one little detail I forgot at Home Depot. Where the heck is the quarter round? I...

TS upgrade #3: Table saw arrives tomorrow

03-22-2012 11:25 PM by Cato | 0 comments »

Thanks, Neil and others that commented on the new table saw. Came home for lunch today and the freight line called and have the saw in Greensboro and will deliver tomorrow around 2 pm. Was just leaving the house when Fedex pulled up and delivered the Jet mobile base a day early. Sounds like things are coming together so I trotted to the big box after work and picked up the electrical items needed to run the new circuit and make up a power cord. Got home and moved the Ridgid saw an...

Crib #7: Hangers and final assmebly

04-04-2012 03:02 PM by Ivan | 0 comments »

So I finished the assembly after pre-finishing everything. used West Systems Marine epoxy, I’m pretty sure it’s not coming apart. Finish is shellac. I ran into a DOH moment when I tried to install the matress platform. The rail extensions actually made it so tight that I couldn’t get a hex screw in. Even with the crib all apart the screws just wouldn’t fit. So I went to Home Depot looking for inspiration and a get my butt out of a bind part. Found Cafe Door pivot...
