router table

03-23-2012 12:40 AM by jacob34 | 1 comment »

I was reading the new issue of Wood and on the cover is a flip top router table. I have seen several blogs and people talking about router tables buying and building, this is one was supposedly built for 43$ although I assume that has to do with where you live and materials you use. I was intrigued by the picture and think it is the router table I am going to try to build. I especially like the way the fence clamps onto the table and the fact that you can flip the top for easy removal and wor...

Banjo #3: Starting the Pot

04-18-2012 10:57 PM by Brett | 2 comments »

I had a chance to make some progress on the banjo today. Here I have some quartersawn sycamore glued to the sides of the head. When that is ready I will trim the edges and then glue some on the face and back. Here I have started on the segments for the pot of the banjo. I made a template for routing the whole pot out and also a template for each segment. It takes 4 segments to make one ring and I will have 3 rings stacked on top of each other to make the completed pot. ...

Death of a Dado Set

Well, at least it wasn’t me that bought it this time.I made a gavel and striker on commission from some of the Indian Dontknow I use for a lot of my projects (post on that to follow).I had emailed the customer to let them know they could pick it up.I told the wife they would come over the weekend and she said “You should make a case for it.” I told her that would be more cost, and I haven’t done a case before so it would take about, oh, a year for me to get it figured ...

Canes & Walking Sticks #1: Custom Canes for Wounded Warriors

06-20-2012 06:42 AM by mmh | 7 comments »

For those of you who know me, this has been an ongoing interest stemming from our humble small business of making custom canes for people who need a walking aid and who are interested in having one that is not resembling an aluminum medical device or a cheap store bought version that Charlie Chaplin would have twirled. My husband uses a cane and for years he searched for a one that had enough substance to support him and give him a sense of style. The handles were made of various material...

Electric Bass Guitar.. #7: Shaping the neck

07-05-2012 08:53 PM by degoose | 9 comments »

Very quick update on the guitar… Johnathan has been rather busy galavanting around the South East and down to the Gold Coast…Got him back into the workshop on Wednesday and started the final shaping of the back of the neck…..Used a half inch radius round over bit to scarf out the rough shape… leaving quite a large quirk…I gave Johnathan a rasp and told him to remove all the timber that did not look like a guitar neck… HMM sound a little like Mr MiyagiHe had...

Crib #3: Finsihed!

08-03-2012 12:28 PM by Andrew | 2 comments »

Applied the last coat of finish last night and installed the side rails today. Went together pretty good, a little tight on the hardware, though. I will be making a taller side rail later on when my son gets bigger. Pleased with the results overall.

Dresser / Chainging Station #5: Almost ready for finishing

09-02-2012 10:21 PM by Andrew | 1 comment »

Worked for the past couple of days on the dresser. I have it to the point where it is almost ready for finish. Need to do some sanding and final tidying up. Dovetail drawers, sassafras pulls – decided on two pulls and an ash top. I used ash for the drawers planed down to 1/2” and white oak scraps for the drawer slides. I used a Rockler dovetail jig to do the joinery on the drawers. Next time, I think I will do half blind dovetails directly to the face of the drawer. These d...

I have a g-1026 shaper about 2 years old. I am in the middle of running 60 raised panels and half way thru the spindal started moving. I have tightened the spindal lock knob, and the adjustment knob still moves freely. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! Gizmac

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #872: A Milestone

11-11-2012 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It’s one of those ‘perfect’ Sunday mornings today. Fresh coffee laced with cinnamon. My little ‘all season’ tree glowing a soft orange light (yes – I have orange lights on it for the autumn season!), Pancakes curled up on my lap as I type with the sound of Vivaldi cello concertos playing softly. What more can I ask? I truly cherish these mornings when I plan and reflect and enjoy the simple things and comforts around me. And of course there is my writin...
