A Pair of Saw Benches

10-09-2015 07:39 PM by CarterR | 2 comments »

Building one of these saw benches designed by Chris Schwarz was one of my first woodworking projects, it is also one the most useful things I have ever made for the shop. It excels as a bench and step stool and I also found out it works pretty well for using a handsaw to dimension lumber. I only built one and always wished I had two.

Mandolin build #3: Prep work, carving profile

10-18-2015 08:46 PM by BJODay | 8 comments »

There are different ways to carve the front, (sound board), and the back of the mandolin. Some shape the outside first. Others start with the inner surface. You can use chisels, gouges and finger planes, or side grinders and sanders. I’m going to work the outer surface first. I’m going to try using a sanding wheel on my drill press. Before starting, I need a guide to know when I have the shape close. The plans have profiles printed on them. I cut the profile out, glued it to so...

Motor issues

02-10-2008 06:03 PM by conwaydog | 6 comments »

I purchase a used old shopsmith and a few tools about 3mo ago for a couple hundred bucks. Last night while turning a pen the motor started to loose power and eventually stopped. I turned off the switch and let it set a few miniutes and tried to power it up again but no luck. This morning I turned it on and it turned about 10sec. and stopped. Any hope or is the motor shot?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1643: Online Learning

10-28-2015 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

When I think back to when I began painting and scroll sawing, I remember how different things were back then. I started both in the mid-90's and there was very little available online. I remember when we purchased our first home computer and I was thrilled at the thought of being able to type on it. My biggest excitement was that I would have a way to find and organize things like recipes and photos, as it was a time when my kids were young and my own little family was a focus. I never co...

Router Table #3: Good thing I'm not getting paid for this

03-02-2008 01:11 PM by shaun | 11 comments »

cause I started it about 3 months ago and it’s still a work in progress. But at least I’ve got all the drawers in it now. The last one was for router bit storage. Initially I planned on making this two drawers, but then I noticed what Sawdustroad was doing with his table and came up with this idea. Special note – Thanks for the idea Sawdust! It would be much better if it had full extension drawer slides on it but I went with what I had for now. I’l...

Bass / Guitar Players pedalboard build #4: A recoverable failure.

10-31-2015 06:35 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

So I went into the shop today to shake up the can of Bedliner in a spray can and found 2 issues… #1. Iforgot I gave the bedliner stuff to my brother in law, so switch to matte black paint.. I have that in a brush on can. Time to shake a can, and shake, and shake, and shake… #2. While I was shaking and looking at the pedal board, something was off alignment wise on the right side piece to the front. Closer inspection shows that the 1/2” plywood, even though it was pre d...
