Pine Auger bit box #1: Starting up, slowly.

10-13-2016 04:48 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, the current bit box is way too small, someone has been buying way too many bits….Soo, I need a new box to hold over 30 (!) auger bits, and related bits. Have a 1×6 chunk of Pine. Why not Oak? Well, the Tannic acid in oak will react to steel/iron objects. Even if I would add a finish to the parts, wear will expose enough bare Oak to start the reaction. Pine is a nice, safe storage wood. At least for iron objects. Laid out a few lines to cut the 1×6 down to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #661: And Now . . . Writing

04-04-2012 11:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

After all the production work over the weekend, it was good to take a break from the saw. Seeing the two projects getting finished up on Monday was a good feeling too. I really makes me feel like I am heading in the right direction. But I am not one to sit on my accomplishments, and I know that there is still a lot of work to be done. I spent the day yesterday at the computer, writing the instructions for the seashell tray and also the calendar topper that is going to be put on the site...

Wooden pens #1: Wooden pens # 1

04-18-2012 03:10 PM by rodman40 | 3 comments » Here are some pics of pens I’ve turned lately and more to come. I find pen turning enjoyable and I can make money if only I would start doing it. I’m turning these pens on two different lathes, one a Sears 12 inch (which is very noisy and the other a Central Machinery 8 by 12 with virable speed and a quiet and sweet turning lathe, both of these lathes were given to me by my cool brother Julio in Georgia, my tha...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #82: Hand Plane Till

10-23-2016 01:31 AM by technoslick | 2 comments »

Earlier today I made a down-and-dirty hand plane till. Yesterday I hung the Stanley No. 5 and 6 on individual racks—lift up and pull out. Now it looks like I didn’t have many. I guess not, but they sure took up a lot of bench top space before. Do I buy more planes and added on for them, or do I use the free space on the left for something else? Nah. You can never have too many hand planes. :)

Moving the family #2: square one

10-26-2016 04:34 PM by SamuelP | 2 comments »

It has been a long time, but a new chapter is starting in my families life. Since my last entry almost three years ago I have moved to Fla and lived in three different houses on 2 different coasts. I have continuously worked 12-15 hours a day 5-6 days a week. I have spent very little time on my work bench and have focused on spending any of my extra time with my girls. As of right now I am unemployed and looking for work back on the WV/MD area. This is the area we have decided is ̶...

Cabinet/Bookshelves #3: Can it be? I'm actually back on this project?

10-31-2016 07:51 PM by Bermuda_Les | 2 comments »

Well it’s been almost two years since I stopped work on this project. A number of things combined to get in the way, not the least of which was a sale of the property where my workshop was. This really threw me for a loop, as for well over six months I had no workshop facility at all, until I finally built a vinyl 10’ X 15’ shed (see build blog elsewhere on this site). Then there was a pergola to build and multiple chicken coops (also on this site), and now at long last I...

shop bench with lots of storage #2: progress on the drawers

06-04-2012 11:05 PM by Mainiac Matt | 4 comments »

It starts with a plan… I know their not super sophisticated, but with a few 1” pin nails to help reinforce the glue joint, they feel pretty solid. I’ve had this stack dado for a while now, but haven’t had need of it till now…so I had to make an auxillary fence and a ZCI Here’s the set up for cutting the lap joints first lap joint gluing up the drawers… I really need to get some more clamps…. I like using the paper t...

Joints #7: 3WJ frame Dowel pins, bracing and shelf

11-04-2016 09:06 AM by robscastle | 1 comment »

The 3 Way Joint is progressing into a small seat due to a requirement to brace the original joints to ensure no more legs “fall off” First up I fitted some dowel pins to the legs This involved drilling a small hole as a guide from the top and down into each leg at an angle, then following up with a 8mm dowel hole. As you can see the joint is far from the perfect butt joint, I cut off the excess with my japanese pull saw. I found some suitable material for braci...

Woodworker's Guide to SketchUp Google+ Hangout

06-20-2012 02:10 AM by BobLang | 1 comment »

I finally had a chance today to try out Google+ Hangouts, and I think I have found an exciting and effective way to share techniques for using SketchUp to design, plan and understand woodworking projects. Hangouts are a way that up to 10 people can interact online. With a hangout, you’ll be able to see what my screen looks like as I work, and if you’re having a problem with a technique, I can look over your virtual shoulder and see what’s happening on your screen and help you out. I’d ...
