Upcoming projects and designs. #9: Taunted by cut offs, and needing small parts bin dividers.

11-04-2010 05:15 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I know the title doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Welcome to my world! Well as followers of my blogs know, I am doing some heavy duty clean up, as well as organizing my shop. Well last night during what time I could eke out for shop time, I managed to un-bury a couple of 29.5×24” 3/4 sanded SYP ply cutoffs. This was the stuff I used for my tool stacker. Now given that the overall dimensions desired for my upcoming small parts / router accessories cabinet is 32” W x...

Extremely Average #291: More half blind dovetails

11-15-2010 05:47 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello All, I continued to practice half blind dovetails today. I really like cutting them, or more aptly, chiseling them out. I think half blinds are more fun than regular dovetails, though perhaps it is just the newness of them. I am sure whatever I learn next, will become my favorite. That is how woodworking seems to go for me. Brian

great craigslist surprises.

01-07-2011 08:24 PM by joshtank | 4 comments »

so a few days ago i posted about a dust collector i saw on craigslist. despite having a relatively small shop space, i felt like getting one was a (literally) healthy move on my part, plus it’s something i can grow into with new tool purchases etc. and less time sweeping means more time for projects! anyway, i went to this guys house, got talking, and we settled on $150 for the DC with assorted ducts and gates etc. i mention i only have a few to...

Rogue Fine Living #2: Standerdize

02-08-2011 07:28 AM by Rogue | 2 comments »

There is possibly no greater challenge for functional art than standardization. For most makers, you’d sware it was a four letter, get-your-mouth-washed-out-with-soap, filthy, word. If you dare to utter “standardize” in your college art class, you are sure to receive an F on your next project. The world of art does not square with having to work inside set parameters. However, like it or not, it’s a fact that those of us that make things that are to actually be used must accept and deal w...

Maple Chess Board #2: Smoothing out

02-17-2011 01:50 AM by Cornductor | 0 comments »

I had taken the weekend off from the boards to regain my brain power for another week at work and time in the shop. I was wishful that the sawdust ferry had solved some of the problems with the cupping of the board but no luck. I took the boards to my somewhat trusty belt sander with 80 grit and began to bring down the cups and smooth out the glued up edges. I was concerned with the sander because it gouged that last boards I did and it took a considerable amount of time to fix them. I then ...
