Pochade Box in progress #1: Pochade box

285 days ago by Jon1094 | 3 comments »

Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field. Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...

Time to get serious about woodworking #2: Unboxing the New Table Saw (Powermatic PM2000)

247 days ago by Shelbdog | 3 comments »

This blog post will discuss how my new table saw (Powermatic PM2000) came packaged from the factory and how it was delivered . I think someone that plans on buying this saw might find this posting very informal and what they will expect when taking delivery. I ordered my new saw through ACME tools and my actual sales guy ended up personally delivering the saw right to my house. He transported the saw in a 1ton pickup with a liftgate. It was nice, he backed the truck right up to my garage t...

Woodworking For Therapy #12: SAFETY BEFORE THERAPY

198 days ago by Steve Kreins | 10 comments »

My Chemo Therapy has been rough, as anyone would understand that has been through it, but one side effect I wasn’t aware of is call ”Chemo Brain”. It’s like my thoughts are trying to push their way through mud. Since I want to encourage people with cancer and other disabilities to try Woodworking for Therapy, I thought a WARNING might be appropriate. We all know that Woodworking can be dangerous and we take precautions to avoid workshop accidents. When you have a di...

fishing rod rack

163 days ago by Pshi97 | 4 comments »

My rack has recently been glued up, so me and my teacher Mr. Santucci (btw he has an awesome beard) decided we were going to put drawers in between two of the bottom shelves. There will be probably about seven inches in height but only about fine and a half deep. I added a divider half way in between so I can make two drawers going across. Any suggestions on what ways/steps to build them? I will try to add a pic later

something new

147 days ago by Chris11 | 1 comment »

so i started trying to design this. its Andy design. i decided to pick this project because our new planer cant be used right now and i need it for the cabinet i was building. due to an electrician who decided to cut the plug and take a brand new extension cord. we have to delay the use of the new planer a couple of weeks.I really liked the idea of fish for some reason so when I was looking through projects this really caught my design.
