My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #778: Timing Is Everything

08-03-2012 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a project is nothing. But that can also be the most difficult part of the process when you are anxious to see the outcome, or are on a schedule to get it finished. There have been many times when I have been guilty of rushing through something that I am making for one reason or another and I come to regret it. But as I get older (and supposedly wiser) and have more experience, I find that rushing through part of the process to finish is more often t...

Around the Shop #3: Another weekend of some Flea Market finds.

09-02-2012 10:04 PM by Don W | 6 comments »

So I had kind of an odd weekend. I found out even flea markets are pricey in CT. The Elephants trunk was a bit of a bust. Prices were way out of norm for me. I did managed to squeak out one Sargent block. Maybe a #306? $5. I always do well at stormville though. I picked up a type 17ish #7 in great shape, a type 11 #5c, an earlier #4 that needs some love, a Sargent #415 that needs a lot of love, and a Nice #2 (Orange frog). The new #2. This is after some quick clean up and sha...

Fun with hand saws #3: Them some real Bad Axes Cletus!

09-20-2012 02:03 AM by JeremyPringle | 6 comments »

Here are two more Bad Axe saws that are owned by my friend. This is a 12” Hybrid dovetail/small tenon saw. Featuring steel back and nuts with a mesquite handle. 14tpi. This saw has a 12” plate, longer than a conventional DT saw, the saw plate is also canted. The teeth are sharpened in a rip format. With these option, this saw ran somewhere around the $300 USD for price. This is the 14” Sash saw. Copper back, with black split nuts. 13 tpi, filed cross cut. These options bring to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #855: Time Warp

10-24-2012 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

The warm summer days are definitely behind us. I sit her this morning writing with a cat at my side and another on my lap, enjoying the warmth of the blanket I am tucked under. It’s cool in here today, but that is just how I like it. Somehow it makes the coffee taste even better. I truly enjoy the autumn. I wish it would last forever. But then, as with anything I think that I may begin to take it for granted. We all tend to do that. We become so familiar with things around us th...

Cutting Board Finish

11-11-2012 03:59 AM by thecarpentershands | 7 comments »

I recently tried my hand at an end grain cutting board with some scraps lying around. I also have been commissioned to build a butcher block style cutting board. As these are the first cutting boards I’ve ever done, I don’t know what exactly what I should do for the finish. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to finish cutting boards? Thanks and God bless!

Around The Coffeepot Ramblings #47: Some Things Just Aint Right

11-27-2012 12:19 AM by William | 20 comments »

Some of you who read my ramblings know that I have been setting up my second shop build bandsaw to make curved cuts, giving me one for curves and one for resawing.The only thing I have been lacking is a blade. I have an extra resaw blade, but since noone locally carries a 105” blade, I had to order one for curved cuts because, as I found out, a resaw blade does not do this very well.So I ordered a quarter inch wide blade. After reading reviews, here and elsewhere, I settled on getting t...

Church pews project #5: finishing coffee table

01-27-2013 10:59 AM by inchanga | 2 comments »

The coffee table base was given four coats of oil before glue up and assembly. The photo shows the use of pocket hole screws in place of clamps. Given multiple dowels, reinforced with screws and good quality glue, there is no reason why this assembly should not last 160 years like the original pews. It will certainly outlast me….... I sanded the top through the grades up to 240 grit and it is shown with the first coat of finishing oil applied. At the moment my intent...
