Then we have those projects which begins with an idea, an inspiration, a project that we know that will stand out, and throughout the day at our regular jobs we plan and strategized on how we are gong to tackle this awsome project.

Dignity and purpose

02-09-2011 07:19 AM by toolchap | 25 comments »

Before I start this I want to warn all left-brainers out there to bypass this one. If you choose to read it and it does not sit well with you, then show me respect by leaving this be. It will be difficult enough to express this in words but I am going to try. Brevity shall be lost here…. According to scientists all matter is inter-connected. Now I am not one of the theoretical types who can spout figures and facts and dates. I blunder along experiencing beauty and mystery and tr...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #10: Can you cheat on a router plane?

02-18-2011 06:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...

I'm glad I was standing to the side!!!

04-05-2011 06:58 PM by Eagle1 | 8 comments »

I started finishing the bottom of a Oak bowl that was 10” round. When the tool decided to grab the wood and it proceeded to fly off of the lathe. I was sure glad to be standing to the side when it happened. The only thing that happened to me was a small slice on the fingure. The bowl on other hand suffered far more than I did. TOTAL WASTE!! But I’m glad it wasn’t me or my face. I was wearing my face shield at the time, but the with the weight of the bowl, I don’t k...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #5: Questions about Walnut and Scrollsawing

04-19-2011 03:14 PM by John_G | 15 comments »

I’m about to begin a scrollsaw project with a piece of 3/4” Walnut. My question is when i was sanding down the walnut ahead of time i noticed that it has “pores” or “open grain” or something in it. Is this normal for walnut, or is it something that will get compeltely sanded out if i spend enough time at it? Thanks Jocks…..

Decide how to lay it on the mill to get the best cuts is step one. 6/4 table top slabs… 8/4 live edge slabs… Kinda heavy fresh sawn 24’’-27’’ wide and I am 6’2’’ for scale. I couldn’t live edge the whole log aft...

Cheap Kitchen Table #1: Space - deal with it

05-14-2011 12:07 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

I had a small apartment with six kids and no dining room to put a table in it. I bought one of those small plastic top folding tables for the kitchen. When I bought my house I wanted a big table but didn’t want to spend big $$$. So I bought a piece of nice plywood, cut it to 3 ft x 6 ft and viola, I had a table. I put a nice table cloth on the table and put a plastic cover on it – remember I have six kids. I made sure I bought a piece of plywood that had a finished side so that...
