ScrollSaw Information and Resources #39: New Craft Mall - Part 2

08-03-2012 01:27 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

Yesterday I delivered about 10 more scrollsaw items to the new craft mall that I have joined. In this mall I have leased one cabinet, with 4 shelves, each 42 inches wide and 24 inches deep. At the present time I am a long way from filling my space, as you can see. However the space was available and they do go FAST in this mall. I waited one day to make up my mind and it was one nervious day. The mall manager had promised to hold the space for that amount of time however still I had ji...

Mid Project Progress

09-02-2012 10:53 PM by Smallcrafter | 0 comments »

My wife and I decided to ditch the tacky plastic door bell chime cover after seeing the one made by dczward here on LJ. This is the one that he came up with and I used his as a jumping off point: Because of the width of our mechanism I had to change the proportions so that it’s not too wide or long. I added the gentle arch to the bottom like dczward’s but had to put the 1 ” ‘windows’ in pairs on either side of the fron...

3/4" Spindle shaper mods

09-20-2012 06:14 AM by robscastle | 0 comments »

After seeing Rembos light inside the machine loren’s mods and other contributions regarding customising our wooworking tools I thought I had better contribute as well. So here we go,I have a 3/4” spindle shaper CT-22CS from Carba Tec, but from what I have seen its the same machine repainted and badged to suit the supplier/re sellers requirements and all come from the PRC or nearby.All are value for money and as they have a router collet an added important accessory to have make...

The Journey #1: Maple Burl Bowl

10-24-2012 08:21 PM by Chad0125 | 0 comments »

Started to work on a maple burl bowl. I received the burl from a guy at work, free, woo hoo. The bowl was to big for my lathe so had to cut into two pieces. It is an exciting piece as every turn something new shows up. Will update as i progress.

No rain = Sawdust!

11-27-2012 01:14 AM by mIps | 0 comments »

After what felt like a solid month of rain (including sideways) it finally decided to clear up for a day and I was able to get out into the Garage-Shop and do some stuff. Sadly no pics at this time but will try to get some.First I want to say that this was mostly a “what am I gonna make, HOW am I gonna make it and what wood can I use to make it with” day. Lots of planning and experimentation for future projects. First thing I did was to work on knobs. Now I know that there are ...

Tools #1: New Table Saw!

12-14-2012 12:40 AM by Spur | 9 comments »

I finally graduated from my old Ryobi table saw to a new table saw. I ordered a sawstop from Woodcraft on Sunday and it was delivered today. Since I won’t have a chance to set it up until Saturday, I figured I would at least open it up and spread it out to get ready. Please keep in mind, the garage is in a state of transition as I redo it into a workshop. In a few weeks the shed will be a complete mess, but the garage will have been set up. Again, not sure why the images get cropped all...

Mobile Torsion Box Workbench #4: The Stand/Base

01-27-2013 02:51 PM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

As I’ve mentioned, the stand is essentially a direct implementation of Christopher Schwarz's $175 Workbench. My shelf is different, and I changed some part dimensions and locations slightly, but it’s the same stand. This rendering shows some details about the locations of the stringers and stretchers. It doesn’t show the location of the top-most hole in each front leg, but it’s 2” top-to-center. The stand required four 2”x8” yellow pine boar...
