New adventure into woodworking #1: The "foundation"

09-03-2012 02:10 AM by Dave66 | 6 comments »

I just retired from my second 20-plus-year carreer. That’s over forty – plus years doing something I hated. Now its time for a change. I’m not a professional woodworker, I’m not even very experienced. But, I’ve played with woodwork for more than 50 years. I’ve even made some fairly decent keepsake boxes over the years. Now, I want to get into woodworking in a way to find out what I’m capable of. With the support of my new spouse, I’ve take...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #823: New Day Dawning

09-20-2012 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

When I woke up this morning, something occurred to me. Isn’t it nice how each day brings with it the chance for a fresh start? I realize right off that the above statement is quite simplistic, and also that some of us are in situations that unfortunately continue from day to day. But on some levels, there are bits and pieces of our lives that are still in our control. To me, each day is like opening a book to a new chapter of my life that will be written as the day unfolds. And ...

Tiny Tiny Woodworking Machines

10-25-2012 01:36 AM by Pimzedd | 2 comments »

I am also interested in model railroading. I am a member of a Yahoo Group called Railroad Buildings and Structures. Someone asked about tiny furniture. A fellow in Kansas City named Kent Hurley gave a link to his Flickr site. While browsing his Flickr site, I discovered this. He uses an online company called Shapways 3d to make 3d printer models for his model railroad. The wire in the photo is a paper clip. He says they are HO Scale. He designed them using Sketchup. I emaile...

30 projects in 30 days #22: days 4-7

11-11-2012 03:37 PM by scottb | 0 comments »

Part of the problem, or challenge, of getting a project done every day (or doing anything in the shop ever) is the dance. The hop, skip and jump of winding your way around all the offcuts, jigs, scrap that too nice to trash, and trash that just doesn’t get out the door. So, in my quest to move forward to having actual floor space, and plenty of covered storage for tools and materials, I’ve stepped away from the lathe, took some plywood and got started on some BIG storage boxes....

Workbench #4: Finished, for now

01-14-2013 02:35 AM by mileskimball | 5 comments »

I finished my workbench last night. I ‘m pretty happy with it, though there are a few things I’m going to continue to work on. One is the wheels supporting the leg vise. I got some small rubber casters from a big box, and as it turns out they’re just not round. So I’m in the market for some better ones (suggestions on suppliers, anyone?). The second is the $32 Shop Fox screw handles. The screws work find – the problem is that the handles are steel, with lit...

Semi Final

02-08-2013 06:52 PM by stefang | 27 comments »

CURRENT STATUSI have just about blogged this thing to death and I’m still not finished, but nearly so. WHAT’S NEXT?I still have to do the teeth, and I plan to do something with the tail. It is too drab and it doesn’t go too well with the lower belly. I will have to figure out how to solve both problems. My next and last blog will be the resawing of the project just so you can enjoy the suspense and drama along with me. To get a good resaw I must, as Shipwright has advi...

Misc. Shop Stuff #20: Whatsit Update: It's a Typesetter's Composing Stick!

03-24-2013 04:20 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

Found this at a flea mkt today, paid $2 for it. Well machined, smooth operation, obviously used. The ‘arm’ slides along the right wall of the main ‘tray,’ then is clamped into place. I don’t know what operation would need a three sided clamp that’s 1/2” deep. Maybe it’s a part someone needs for a machine, or maybe it’s forever an “I dunno.” Can you help with a guess? Thanks.
