SPIRAL DESIGN #4: Progress ... going halfway

09-04-2010 03:41 PM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Have done today those little pieces to complete 7 sections. I have to select and replace previous wood because of brittleness being cut endgrain. I learned today that even a very hardwood cannot be trusted to retain its hardness when it is cut endgrain. There are some cracks along the line. Here is the picture how it looks today. and here is another… The lesson learned today…. The piece much be clamped firmly during cutting and filing.

Ronin Woodworking #13: Progress and continued frustration TSDC Build Challenge is challenging

10-11-2010 07:15 PM by spaids | 3 comments »

I got some progress on my little table for The Sawdust Chronicles 2010 Build Challenge. It seems with every step I take I feel the frustration of compromise. This is not going to be perfect. Thats always the goal and I have yet to make anything were every cut was perfect. I wonder if I should be focusing on improving my skills or figuring out ways to circumvent my lack of skill with ingenuity? But if I found a way around my lack of skill problem would that just mean that my “skill&...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #8: The saw is in one piece and running.......

10-24-2010 06:52 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 10 comments »

At this point I would like to add screw up number four to the list. I managed to lose an E-clip that holds the vertical adjustment worm gear in place. I went to a few auto parts places and none of them had the clips. I wound up at the local ACE hardware which had the exact part in stock. With the part in hand, completing the assembly was pretty easy. Let me note here that before putting the arbor assembly on the cradle, please make sure the pulley fits. The replacement pulleys that I ...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #166: A Wonderfully Postive Outcome

11-16-2010 03:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

They say things happen for a reason, and I am one of those people who truly believes that. In any situation there are always several ways to look at things. Those who are pessimists tend to only see the negative side of things and focus on the bad things associated with the occurring event. Then there are the optimists who have a way of finding good in even the most troubling situation. I like being optimistic. Call me a fool, but I would rather go through my life with anticipation and ...

Dust Extraction #2: A Clang and my Dusty Died

12-12-2010 12:30 PM by DoctorDan | 6 comments »

Today my dusty died. I was working on two toy chests for christmas. I was cutting the curve on the base moulding with a jigsaw I heard a clang, followed by a change in pitch of the dust extractor hum. My 3 week old dust extractor. I cut the power and walked over to explore. The impellar case was split… a ding in the curve… and some paint missing. I found this block of wood. A little big for a dust extractor… about 20cm long. (Tells you it’s got some...

Christmas Literature

12-26-2010 05:10 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I am overwhealmed this year with new literature for Christmas. I asked for some books and shared my amazon wish list with family. What I got was Handplane Essentials from “The Schwarz” (my hero), The Handplane Book by Garret Hack, and James Krenov’s second and third books (I already have and love the first). I’m about halfway through Chris’s book and can’t wait to read them all. Merry Christmas to all of you on LJ’s and thanks for the inspiratio...

I really think that January is not really conducive to going to the markets… yet again, no sales… I did however pick up an order for an painters easel… never made one of these before so will be a bit of a challenge.. So, stay tuned for this project.. Something rather unusual came into sight half way through the morning… As you all will be aware… I love the Louis Cube or Tumbling Block design… Well… ...check out the T-Shirt thi...
