Hi FolksThere’s been some lovely comments posted on old projects of mine recently and this has spurred me into posting a little more frequently. Please don’t think me rude – there just aren’t enough hours in the day :)So a little background info for those that don’t know me. I love woodworking – I’ve been making furniture and things (and let’s be honest, finding excuses to buy of lots of tools!!) for about 10 years. A few years ago I got into bu...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #11: First square holes

05-24-2011 03:12 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

I grabbed a piece if wood. It happened to be plywood and punctured a couple of holes. Pretty cool. The fence has two lockdowns and a knob to move the fence. The lockdowns are spring loaded so you have to tighten, lift then up and tighten them again. the knob allows some pretty fine movement. Here’s one of the two the fence lockdowns: Here’s the knob to move the fence: There is a #4 allen screw used to lock the box around the bit and another one to lock down...

old yeller's reputation

06-05-2011 09:11 PM by woodcraftertom | 8 comments »

I know this will bring some response but I kept quiet long enough. Recently there has been many reviews in the way of complaints about Dewalt Scroll saws. I don’t disagree that maybe some have had a problem or two with them but lets be fair they are not terrible pieces of equipment. I for one will not jump on the negative bandwagon. I teach scroll sawing at Woodcraft in Harrisburg and use Dewalts and am the proud owner of one myself. I can point out some things about the Excalibur but ...

Rehabing Record Planes!

06-19-2011 06:41 PM by bigike | 9 comments »

Here are a few planes I’m doin for use in my shop. It’s funny of all the planes that got a new life I haven’t seen to many record planes being done with their same blue paint and everything. Mine have the same blue paint that was on them when I got them or a real close match so you will notice they are different from others you may have seen. Please enjoy! Sorry I don’t know how to center the pics cuz some show just half the plane but in the regular pic it shows the wh...

Asian Woodworking #1: Luk Yu Teahouse

07-05-2011 05:18 AM by JRL | 4 comments »

Please, no jokes about the name of this historic Hong Kong teahouse. I’m sure they could make a few cracks about how some English words come across in Cantonese, so why go there. The LY Teahouse was a real eye-opener to me as far as Chinese joinery is concerned. It was about the time of this visit that I began to realize ancient Chinese joinery—of course, all by hand—far surpasses most contemporary handwork, Eastern or otherwise. The art may have been snuffed out complete...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves #2

08-15-2011 09:53 PM by rsain | 1 comment »

Just finished up the leaves. Still going to do the undersides, but not too much work there – just a quick coat of 2lb cut shellac to seal it off. Here are a few more pics. Like I said previously I’m VERY pleased with how this shellac finish turned out. And the last step of hand burnishing is a must. I compared the two leaves (one with and one without) and there was a noticeable difference in smoothness of the reflection between the two. So – I went ahead and rubbed out th...

Backorder is killing me!!!

08-30-2011 03:56 PM by darrenjttu | 15 comments »

I ordered this saw in February and it keeps on getting pushed back. Now they are saying October. I didnt mind at first because I just had a new baby but now that I have a little bit of free time during the day (10 min) I wish I had this saw. I thought about ordering a different one but this one is exactly what I need and the price is way cheaper than other comparables.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #478: Finding My Comfort Zone

10-01-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really feel good about yesterday. It was one of those days where everything just marched along as it should and in the end, I felt like I really accomplished a lot. I felt good and I stayed really focused on what I wanted to accomplish and by the time the day was complete, I had done what I had set out to do and more. There were few distractions and I really had fun too. One of the most important things that I did was to get my next lesson up. It had been a couple of weeks since I post...

Wooden box projects and adventures #3: Why epoxy putty is my new besty friend....

10-16-2011 01:38 AM by MadJester | 10 comments »

Well…I was able to do a little bit more on the coffin today, and I’m still not 100% happy with the way the miter corners of the little ‘frames’ are coming out, but I’m pushing forward with the project, as I have decided to use it for myself instead of trying to sell it…I’ll consider it a learning project and leave it at that…still not sure how the best way is to get the uprights angled correctly…I’m so used to using my guillotine tha...
