Measure Twice, Cut once. No. Really

01-12-2009 05:58 AM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

And so we have another version of why I refer to myself as woodbutchery. So, I’m finishing up the bottom of a 6 panel box and I’m reminded that I need to repair the bottom portion of the attic stair. The wood has split on the bottom third of the sides, and it makes the two sections very loose. So, looking at the ladder and saying to myself, “How hard can it be?”, I start designing on the fly. Those of you who are trying to wave me off, flag me down, or signal...

I got a chuckle out of this one . . . I’ve kind of done that first thing shown, only my flying object was a peice of PVC pipe chucked out the Shopsmith blade. Wheee!

Jewelry Box #4: Hardware, the next hurdle.

02-23-2009 12:03 AM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

Looking good so far. Now its time to mangle the pretty box up with hardware. I used a jig and routed out the quadrant hinge form. Which fit nicely. Only to provide me a box with a 3/16 offset the first time around. I assumed I messed up the jig, so I planed the top and bottom flat again, and re-read the manual before attacking some scrap wood. 3/16th again. A few emails back to the manufacturer, and I got a new one. (Beall, best service in the biz!) Now, the next ro...

Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

06-09-2009 06:04 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...

Amazing Tools #4: cedar shake saws

06-15-2009 06:56 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

This is without a doubt the scariest looking sawyer job I’ve seen yet. Check out how casually he thrusts his unsupervised hand at the 4’+ tall circular saw blade! There are many more videos of people in this job with these saws on YouTube. Scary stuff.

Setting Up Shop #2: A Little Progress

07-21-2009 02:46 PM by HD_woodchuck | 3 comments »

So it has been a couple of weeks since I began to ‘unpack’ my shop. Made a little progress, but nothing worth mentioning. However, I have managed to find enough of my tools to begin working a little. I have made a set of bean bag toss boards, which I didn’t get pics of yet, but will post in my projects as soon as I can do that. I have also began building an interesting cabinet of sorts that I designed. I’ll keep that little gem a secret for now, and will definit...

The basement is finally all cleaned out of the disaster the last owner left. I’ve added good lighting and started on a divider wall. Tomorrow I have to etch the concrete to get it ready for Drylok.

New Toy

08-27-2009 03:28 AM by Jimi_C | 7 comments »

Got this off someone on Craigslist for $90: I know it’s not the best piece of equipment out there, but for $90 on a limited budget I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve read it snipes, but I hope to minimize that a bit by getting some decent rollers for infeed/outfeed.

Black walnut

09-14-2009 10:14 PM by bobbo1963 | 13 comments »

I am building a cradle and am using black walnut for the first time. A friend indicated that glueing will be a issue. To accomplish this, He said that a bleeching foam would be needed. This will help in finishing as well. I have never heard of this and would all inputs pro or con. Thanks
