Hand Planes #2: Class Canceled

05-12-2011 10:18 PM by Jeremy Greiner | 1 comment »

I signed up for an all day Hand Plane class that was to be this sunday at my local Woodcraft. Unfortunatly I was the only one who signed up and I guess the teacher wasn’t happy about that so he canceled the class. Fortunatly, Bruce one of the employees is very good with hand planes and offered to give me the ins and outs this saturday afternoon after the normal demo he’s giving. I’m sure he’ll get a hand plane sale out of me because I would like to buy a new one ...

Harmonica case #3: commissioned harmonica case - grouting the brick

08-03-2011 06:38 PM by gurnie | 4 comments »

So it took me two weeks to chisel out the bloodwood to make it look like patterned brick (you know, doing some here and there not to drive myself crazy). Then i mixed glue with maple dust and grouted the piece. Then it was sanded with a sander. here’s the results. I think the next thing to do is glue up the box and then shape the legs. I am a bit afraid that applying a finish will darken the grout, hopefully it won’t be too much. Whatdaya think?

Building a Shed #4: Build Day 2

08-15-2011 11:07 PM by ChadR | 1 comment »

Build day 2 was much like day 1. I completed the second window wall with a little help from the wife. I also completed the back wall. Now all I have left to complete is the two roof pieces and the entrance wall. I am starting to run out of lumber and realized I under estimated my lumber needs. I will have to make another run to Home Depot.

TV Stand #7: Cauls, jigs, molding and doors

09-15-2011 05:20 AM by Angela | 4 comments »

Bottom MoldingI cut a long piece of the African mahogany 3” wide. I original use ¾” but didn’t like the way it looked so I planed it down to 5/8”. I ran it through my router table using a Freud Roman Ogee router bit # 38362. I first cut the front piece. I used the same angles that I used on the main case. After cutting the side angles, the pieces didn’t fit based on the angles I cut them. When I glued the sides of the main case together the angles came out different from wha...

52 Weeks #42: Merry Halloween! Huh?

10-31-2011 02:40 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

To those of you on the east coast. I can not believe it snowed 2 days before Halloween. But anywho, hope everyone is doing ok, sounds like Connecticut got hit pretty bad. This weekend was the big Halloween Program at my work so I finally got to display the cut outs I have been doing. I did a lot of the cutting out, the tracing was done by another person and my staff helped with a few of the smaller ones. It came out looking pretty neat, even though I had to put the witches back up a few ti...

Vermont Woodworking School

11-30-2011 03:56 PM by empeg9000 | 3 comments »

On November 16th—20th I attending the Intro to furniture building class at the Vermont Woodworking School. It was a 4 day school about 8 hours a day. I built a Shaker Cherry Side Hall Table while there. The shop is an old restored barn. It has radiant heat, 3! Saw Stop table saws with one of them dedicated to dados. I guess it’s a pain on those to change over the blades to dados. The equipment there is crazy. I could become a member and use the shop on Tuesdays and Thursdays fo...

Day to day life #2: Fast pace day

12-31-2011 04:16 AM by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Early start on the road for us today and Tom didn’t mind because I took him to McDonalds for breakfast. We did our weekly grocery shopping afterward as well as picking up supplies for the Vet clinic. It really went fast and we were home before 1030. I paid bills and balanced the check book before going to the shop to finish a frame that goes around the outside of a house address sign made of terra cota that my wife and I bought two Christmas ago. I will install it tomorrow morning and then a...

The guy in the middle

I was just browsing aroiund on Thomas MacDonald (TommyMac) and ran across this picture. It shows Tommy Mac, Karson and Charles Neil. Three great woodworkers in one spot – what are the odds. I couldn’t copy the picture to post (site would not allow it), but here is a link to the page:
