Extremely Average #218: I did the math...

08-09-2010 05:19 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ’s, I took great care today and mapped out what I needed to do. This planning yielded the best tiny box bottoms I have yet created. I also finally got that rare earth magnet tool holder, hung on my wall. I built it months ago, but until yesterday, didn’t have the right router bit to cut the key holes. Brian

One Project Down, Another Ready To Go

08-23-2010 09:49 PM by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Finally finished the face frames on the built-in bookcases, and they are now done except for painting (and my lovely wife is going to take care of that). Here is the “finished” product that still needs some “finish”. Now on to new and (gasp) even bigger things. We are going to take a wall out of the Kitchen and open it up to the dining room, and where the wall was, we’re going to put in a new set of Cabinets with a built in breakfast bar. The run of...

Early Anniversary gift

09-05-2010 05:52 AM by Rustic | 20 comments »

Well my loving wife has gone and done it again…She has given me the best anniversary gift a woodworker could hope for, a intro to woodcarving class. It starts next Wed. at Woodcraft. The class is 4 hours long. I am totally geeked about it. I am going to have a blast. I just know it. I have a source for my carving tools and a source for my sharpening system until I can afford the more powerful sharpening and honing system. This month on the 23rd is our 10th anniversary. Now I just need t...

Tapered Display Tower - beetle-kill pine #2: Boy, was the dust FLYING, around here !

09-17-2010 04:25 AM by NBeener | 10 comments »

Progress ! I’ve cut the side panels and shelf stock. Note that the entire project is based around three degree cuts, so … the tops and bottoms of the side panels, and the sides of each shelf are all cut to 3*. This also dictates the size of each of the shelves. The joinery will be biscuits (the slots are at three degrees, too !). I’ve put the 1/4” rabbet in the side panels, for the plywood back. I’ve also laid out all the lines for the 3-1/2” &#...

My Journey #6: Restoring some old iron

09-30-2010 06:56 PM by Trimble | 1 comment »

So, yesterday, I spent more time working on my daughter’s dollhouse. Damn, there are LOTS of little parts to sand. Wow. Yeah, so there’s that. But, I also did some work on my new big toy, the old 50’s Craftsman 6” jointer. I was rusted all to heck, but I bought a bottle of Evapo-rust, and I have been soaking the parts in it. This stuff kicks some ass! If you have rust you need to get rid of, get some of this stuff. It melts away. Plus, it’s not an ...

Homemade Hand Tools

10-12-2010 10:07 PM by Ed Pirnik | 2 comments »

This afternoon I emerged from the shop here at Fine Woodworking after having put together a pretty neat little picture framing jig. It’s designed for cutting precise miters and perfectly matching picture frame sides (meaning it has a stop block set-up meant to cut pairs of picture frame sides to precisely the same length). It’ll be featured in an upcoming video workshop I’m going to be shooting later this month on picture frame moldings and frame assembly. Anyhow, I digress....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #156: Last Trip to the Wood Store of the Season

11-06-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What an adventure yesterday was! I am very happy to be back home here safe and sound. We headed out just after 5 am and we didn’t make it back home here until almost 10 pm. Even though it was a long day, it seemed to go by very quickly. The only negative part of the day was the persistent rain, which doesn’t look as if it is going to stop until Thursday or Friday from the looks of the weather map. We knew that rain was predicted for the day, but we didn’t expect the q...

Wheelchair Woodworking #7: Helping Hands part three Taking

11-28-2010 11:57 PM by Jamie Speirs | 8 comments »

The takingI think this is one of the hardest parts. Is it that we don’t like taking? Maybe it is a matter of pride, accepting help even when it might not be needed by ourselves. I needed to realise that others also have a need to give and if they cant allow them give, we are being selfish. I continually use bearings, might be a dust thing or perhaps I’m just a bit to rough on my wheelchairs. I normally just buy new bearings on line. It is quick and easy. So when I needed some bearings for ...

My new Roubo #4: Final glue up of the bench top

12-27-2010 02:39 AM by JasonD | 5 comments »

There were points in this process that I didn’t think I’d get this far. I took some vacation time and spent the past few days trying to get the top finished up. My goal was to have it completely glued up before the first of the year. I’m glad to say that despite a few set backs, I’m a week ahead of my goal. Not only is it a big motivational factor in a long bench building process, but it’ll also allow me to take a few days off to let my achy planing / sawing m...

Swiss Trip #4: Swiss woodwork and joinery

01-10-2011 04:44 AM by Roger Strautman | 10 comments »

With my construction background it was only natural for me to pay special attention to some of the unique construction techniques from years past. This is a unfinished end of a house. Oh yes, they do have lumber yards! Some of the woodwork was beyond one’s imagination.
