That's my boy!

08-05-2011 06:24 PM by OhioMatt | 12 comments »

For my first activity on this site, I thought I would show off my best work. This is my 5 yeard old son with a Craftsman 16” scroll saw we found on Craigslist for $50. We have been working together in the woodshop/garage for a while with hand tools and I was concerned to let him use any power tools even with my supervision. I found this saw and did some deep thinking about what the chances of injury could be. After perrmission was given by my wife, I asked him if he wanted to go 50/...

It refers to the treatment of wood with chemicals to impart resistance to degradation and deterioration by living organisms.

Unisaw 34-450 restoration #1: Starting from zero

12-02-2011 07:51 AM by Alexdi | 4 comments »

About three months ago, I wanted to build a small furniture piece for my rec room. This quickly ballooned (as these things do) into putting together a full workshop. The plan to pick up an old $100 portable saw morphed into a recent contractor saw, and then on a whim, into a cabinet saw. Here’s what I discovered: The saw: There are no pictures of the saw fully assembled because it was dark when I bought it and in pieces when I got it home. A few shots of some parts: I’...

Woodworking in Minnesota?

01-13-2012 01:57 AM by Aristocraft | 22 comments »

Ok, This will sound crazy but I am wondering what it is like doing woodworking in Minnesota? I have never been any further north that Kansas – I currently live in Texas. My wife may be ‘moving up the corp ladder’ and having to reloacte to Minnesota. I am a little nervous of the possibility of moving that far north – I like the heat in Texas but she is excited and so I guess I will learn to adapt! Now, I know they have houses, heated workshops, etc…. that̵...

Virtual Pinball Machine #2: The Lower Cabinet Build

01-25-2012 08:39 PM by milbert | 4 comments »

The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...

How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #8: JUST AN QUICK UPDATE...

02-07-2012 04:29 AM by Chickenfoot | 0 comments »

Just a quick update, I made $500 on the band saw and $450 on the planes so far with a couple still left to sell. I also traded a couple planes for a 20” Scroll Saw… I’ll talk more about that one later. My Daughters 21ST birthday party is this weekend so I’m sure I wont be going to the Rose Bowl on Sunday. So far I have $950 in the pot. Keeping my eye on the big picture…
