My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #691: A Wave of Mini-Disasters (It Will Only Get Better From Here!)

05-04-2012 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

Well, I just don’t know what to think. It isn’t even 7:30 yet and already my day started with ‘adventure.’ But I am still smiling, and that is the important thing and I am thinking that the day will only get better. (In fact, I am sure of it!) Actually the adventure started last night. It was about 9:30 and I was getting my jammies on and Keith called to me a phrase that I dread hearing: “The saw broke!” he said. “What?” I said th...

Walnut and oak marking gauges

05-19-2012 01:12 AM by wlojr | 0 comments »

I made these as practice, from some of the walnut i rescued last weekend, and some dowels I got from an auction a few months ago, I wish I had a drill press, hand drilling the holes was difficult, but a table saw will be my next shop investment. the walnut sure looks good finished, I used a light brown stain for both the walnut and the oak and then one coat of polyurathane. I used a 1/4 drill but for the stop thinking that would work for 1/4 dowels, but it was too tight so I sanded down ...

Woodworker's Auction #2

06-19-2012 09:17 PM by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

I can't play until Saturday.

07-19-2012 08:01 PM by nitrowood | 3 comments »

Well I just got a boat load on stuff I ordered from Amazon, but I can’t play with any of it until Saturday. I got among the toys were a biscuit joiner, 2 sanders disc/ belt, several clamps, a base for my band saw and a new 14 roundover bit from Freud. But work does call and I’ve got training after work on Saturday which will put me home after 2 o’clock. Hopefully I can muster up the energy to check out the lute.

Kitty Condo - CAD/CAM primer #3: Detailing parts and joints

08-17-2012 05:34 PM by Mainiac Matt | 0 comments »

Once the overall design is done… each of the parts needs to be detailed and the joinery decisions made. Because I knew I would CNC cut the parts cut from the salvaged 1/2” particle board, I played to the strengths of the tools and used as many slots, pockets and lap joints as I could. bottom and top sides platform end with door Stair treads Hopefully, if all goes accurately with the cutting and if I didn’t botch the layout…. th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #805: Site Update Completed

09-02-2012 09:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

So far it is the perfect morning. It is quiet and cool and I even had to throw a blanket over my lap (besides my cat Pancakes) to keep warm. I love it when the nights and mornings are cool. I sleep well and feel better in the long run. I am sure that later in the day it will warm up, as it does every day. But not to the point where it is hot and uncomfortable. I think we are done with those days for this season. I finished up the web site update yesterday. I also got the easel pattern...

Can Anyone Tell Me What Is Going ON!

09-19-2012 06:59 PM by OregonBurls | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, This is a piece of a fir tree. You may or may not have seen anything like this before but it is fun to explore how this came to be. It may be obvious or not. I find these occasionally in the woods. So this is to test of logic. I will not give you any more info but remember I work with burls at Oregon Burls. So you may have read my short article a little while ago on burling. However this is not a burl… So How did this happen is my question to you. This is fun stuff!E...

Mounting a Bench Vice For Mortising

10-24-2012 12:36 AM by JordsWoodShop | 1 comment »

The tail vice in my workbench needed a bit of work, the faces were out of square, and the vice had a bit of a skew to it. In this video I will remove my existing vice and replace it with a new position as well as using new chunkier jaw face’s. http://www.JordsWoodShop.com

Wooden Spoon

Made this today. All I need to do is a little sanding and a finish on it. I used a piece of oak to make this one. This my real true attempt at a “spoon”
