Lathe Stand #5: Sanding Station

01-11-2015 07:04 PM by Jarred | 1 comment »

Figuring out how to make sandpaper available was a challenge. My first method was tearing small strips of sanding sheets. Although effective, this took time, and I seemed to be misplacing the sheets fairly frequently. I looked into smarter ways of sanding on the lathe. I found woodturner’s packs of sandpaper, with 1” strips of various grits. This made a lot more sense than tearing strips of sheets of sandpaper. However, the packs seemed a bit pricey, and I wanted to be able to conceal the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1850: A Milestone

08-14-2017 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and 'blurry'?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really sure exactly what we intend to accomplish?  When this happens to me, I must admit that not only do I not achieve as much as I would like, but I feel a higher level of stress as well.About a year an...

I'm back...

01-14-2015 02:16 AM by Scott H. | 2 comments »

I have been away for a while but I have the fever once again! I sold my band saw and planer a while back, but will be getting a new band saw soon and a new planer will come in time. Just want to say it’s good to be back in the shop making some sawdust!

Bench Surgery

08-20-2017 12:05 AM by Timmy2Hands | 3 comments »

I’m waiting on some finish to cure on one project and preparing to start on an upcoming tabletop, so I decided that today is a good day for some maintenance. It’s been two years since i did the initial flattening on this bench and it’s also looking pretty dingy. With a table next on the project list I need the benchtop as flat as possible. Let’s get to it. Most of the work I do on this bench is with relatively small parts so overall flatness is not a big conce...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!

My Millers Falls-Langdon Miter Box #3: After the Cleaning

01-18-2015 08:02 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

I’ve cleaned up the miter box with some oil and a brass brush. It’s in good shape to my judgement. I only disassembled the guides. The slides were only dirty, not rusty nor pitted. The springs are all working as well. I’m very happy. I did discover two things after removing the box from the board it was on and coating it liberally with linseed oil. The previous owner scribed his name onto the board, ‘Hugo Vogt’ which is my pastor’s father. Als...

Upgrading circular saw dust extraction #1: Upgrading circular saw dust extraction

09-02-2017 07:56 AM by Per Isacsson | 1 comment »

I bought a circular saw with a sliding table from China a couple years back. It is a really great saw but some parts you could wish for more. One of the easiest parts to modify is the dust extraction. It does not work very well since the airflow is distributed all over the place. So the question was how to make this better. I friend of mine has a wood working shop there he work professional and with much bigger machines. So I basically paid him a visit and had a lock inside his saw how the du...

Meh….Brought the Walnut plank to the shop….made a few crosscuts… It had a section that needed to be…gone&...

Woodworking by Hand #1: Thinking of finally selling all the power tools!

01-24-2015 04:52 PM by BerBer5985 | 5 comments »

Ok, let me preface by saying that when I first got into woodworking, I started buying up every power tool there was (Mostly craigslist buys) and every nifty jig from taper jigs to dovetail guides to router bits, etc. In growing up in a house where my dad had essentially one main power tool in his shop (Not a woodworker, but a DIY handman contruction type shop.), a radial arm saw and then occasionally an old makita 10” miter saw, I had a love for power tools. For christmas and birthdays ...

Tool box hutch

I refused to shell out 4k for a snap-On hutch for my tool box at work so I decided to make one just how I wanted it.
