A Dying Chainsaw's Last Words #1: Carb Rebuild

04-22-2014 07:36 PM by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...

Got some pieces of the table saw cleaned up

05-16-2014 02:54 AM by jlabos | 6 comments »

So here are the wings all cleaned up. I worked with 100, 220, 500, 1000, and then 1200 grit sand paper. I wet sanded the gray painted area and it cleaned up well so I don’t think I will be painting them. I think that they will shine with some wax. There was one small area that I hand to sand down to the metal because there was some sticky gunk stuck to it. The insert had some deep scratches in it so I sanded it down and painted it. The blade guard cleaned up real nice. ...

Jewelry Case Build #10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish

07-01-2014 01:44 AM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I’m so close to finishing this little project. I looked back at the date on the beginning of this blog series and it’s nearly 70 days ago! Today I fussed with the little doors, getting them aligned as best as I can. There must be some trick to this that I’m missing, if anyone knows, please let me know! I had applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil a while ago so once the assembly was complete, I sanded everything to 360 grit. The fine sanding dust mixed with the BLO m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1381: Some Final Thoughts on All American Crafts

08-13-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Good morning to you all. I didn't get as much done as I intended yesterday. I have some ideas that I am working on, but there were simply too many distractions for me to make headway.I spent most of the day reading and discussing the closing of Creative Woodworks and Crafts and all of the All American Crafts publications. (Paintworks, Paint-It, Wood Turning Designs, Carving, Create and Decorate, etc.) While I mentioned in my post yesterday that I wanted to just move forward, I realized th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1396: It's a Beautiful Day for an Update!

09-04-2014 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

While yesterday seemed like a LONG day in more ways than one (long stories – never mind!) at the end of the day when things were all said and done, I was able to sit back and look at the accomplishments and feel pretty good about things. There are some times when I really feel as if I move slow with things. I paint slow. I draw slow. I design slow. But as I look at all the projects that I have finished up, I can honestly look back with a sense of pride that what I have done is some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

Note about Cajon & New Sander

10-22-2014 07:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Just a random blog this time. The cajon I’m working on has chosen which side will be the bottom. When I began rounding over the corners with a 1/2 inch roundover router bit, the grain in the plywood began splitting away from the surface. I caught it in time to minimize it on the rest of that edge, and I managed to eliminate it on the rest of the box. I also made the damage very unnoticeable using some wood colored epoxy that I had. That, plus making that side the bottom will be the f...

How to save $100 on a new Band Saw

11-15-2014 05:44 AM by OldWrangler | 12 comments »

After waiting 3 weeks my band saw finally came in. I have been wanting to get a new band saw to replace my 25 y/o Rockwell 14. This has been a really good machine for a long time but it is worn out and I keep having to buy parts and up grades. It was time to spend some money. After doing several days homework I had boiled it down to Rikon, Steel City and Jet. The Jet seemed to be the Cadillac of the group but then it was also the most expensive. Then in researching I saw that Home Depot co...
