Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1429: Busy Times

10-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

With the holidays quickly approaching, I can see all of my creative friends kicking things into high gear. Many people are not only doing items for craft shows, but also for thie own holiday gift giving. I find that more people are looking to make gifts rather then buy them from the store. This is great news for designers and crafters alike, as not only does it keep us busy, but it helps perpetuate our hobbies and small businesses as well. Yesterday I didn't get as much as I would ha...

It’s nearly 4 hours of instruction! Bill and I wanted to create a very affordable and detailed class that would be easily understood by both beginner and advanced woodworkers, and we achieved that…with the help of R...

I'm learning

01-14-2007 03:22 PM by Dusty | 6 comments »

After I posted the pictures of my Grand Fathers clock with the stained glass face and panels I had several people comment about the stained glass ceiling and other furniture in my library. I realize this is a woodworking site so I didn’t post or write anything about the ceiling. I do use my stained glass in a number of projects – such as my lamps, hutches,and door panels. I have a number of those pieces in my home. I however, for fear of offending or violating the rules of this wo...

When do you say "no" to your jointer?

02-27-2007 11:34 AM by oscorner | 9 comments »

With a forecast of fowl weather this weekend, I didn’t plan to begin any new projects this weekend. I decided to get back to work on turning my air dried lumber into usable lumber, so I changed out the drum sander on my WoodMaster and put the planer head back on. This meant that I needed to remove my bandsaw on the SuperShop and replace it with my 6” jointer. Well, I spent many hours jointing and planing lumber into usable pieces. Of course, with rivened wood the wood is split...

Thorsen table challenge - tease! #1: Oscorner is taking the challenge!

03-31-2007 02:04 PM by oscorner | 12 comments »

Well, I’ve begun the work of preparing stock and cutting the parts to size. I’ve taken some rough sawn Louisiana cherry and jointed it and made several passes through my WoodMaster planer to bring it within the deminsions needed. I didn’t have a board wide enough to make the table top from, so I had to glue up three boards to make it. It will be more stable this way, anyhow. After cutting the boards to length, I let them sit in my shop for several days. Partly to allow ...

Thought I would share this website with everyone. Some very good content spanning a wide variety of topics. I am not sure how often they change or update programming. I have watched most of all the episodes over the last month or so. The Woodworking Channel
