My First Bandsaw Box #3: Step 2: Design and Layout of Your Bandsaw Box

12-11-2010 10:54 PM by Jonathan | 1 comment »

After you either have your hunk of wood chosen, or you’ve glue-up a hunk of wood, it’s time to design your bandsaw box. There are numerous ways of doing this… you can simply freehand the entire thing in a freeform sort of way, or you can draw your design on a piece of paper and then use spray adhesive to attach the cutout design onto the block of wood, or you can draw the lines for the box directly onto the wood, or you can do what I did and use tracing paper. Since I kne...

Machinist Toolbox #8: Not Yet Finished, but It's Finished

12-25-2010 06:36 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I mentioned it in the previous post and as I was working on the drawers I had the main carcass take the finish to make use of time. Mahogany much like Oak has large open pores. My finishing goal was more for practice than necessity, but I was aiming for an antique polished look – shiny outside. I knew I would have to fill in those pores if I want an even polished surface. So my plan was to start with a filler coat which I tried to concoct using dewaxed shellac and mahogany sanding sa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #219: Taking Care of Business

01-08-2011 03:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, today will be short as I am already late out of the gate . . . It seems that I never find myself short of things to do. I suppose that is part of owning my own business. Last night I had an order in the middle of the night and the customer brought to my attention that on his receipt that he received in the confirmation email, it only showed one item. He had ordered three items and forwarded the receipt to me and I thought it was strange because even though only one item showed on...

Wood Gloat (almost)

01-29-2011 10:04 PM by Don | 5 comments »

The power company had to cut down my Cedar tree because it had overgrown an access gate and they couldn’t get into it. Before I had a chance to ask them to leave it in 10’ logs so I could get it milled they had it cut into firewood lengths. :( So if you see me posting a ton of small Cedar jewelry boxes next year you’ll know why … Or maybe I’ll finally buy a lathe and turn some big bowls.

Custom Wooden Pistol Handle for Taurus Judge Tutorial #2: Part 2

02-28-2011 12:10 AM by Barrett | 0 comments »

First, the project started with a hunt for the right wood, using the original pistol handle as a guide in finding a piece of appropriate size. After transferring the basic dimensions onto the wood, make a rough cut with a bandsaw. Afterwards, re-sawed the wood using a bandsaw to create a new handle blank. The next step involves routing out the inside of the handle halves to slide in the metal tang of the pistol. Transfer the unique shape of the metal tang onto the insides of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #293: Day 2 - More Travel

03-23-2011 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We made it through the first day pretty well. There are funny stories, of course and incidents, but I am going to keep this really short today for obvious reasons. Getting through customs and over the border was a lot more than we thought it would be. Usually the Canadians are the ones that scrutinize everything because they like to slap taxes on all that you bring over. But I was surprised that it was the US customs agents that were being pretty picky. Since the boxes were filled with...

Workshop #1: Workshop in progress

04-05-2011 05:17 AM by Michelle C | 1 comment »

Wil and I are sharing the garage space, for woodworking and motorcycle. And due to also sharing the garage with the cars this will be an exercise with space management (more like magic). The bike is also in transit, and he wants to enjoy it (norton 75 commando) first before he tears it apart and restores it, And my tools are also in transit before I can get them set up. And the planner, scrollsaw, saw, and a few others are stowed away in the garage cupboards. The bandsaw is also on its way...
