New sawmill/slabbing mill

03-10-2013 02:53 AM by WoodLe | 8 comments »

I finally finished up my new slabbing mill today that I have been working on the last 3 months or so. It was very rewarding to finally fire it up and start cutting. All the extra hours of research, planning, locating small parts, and getting parts machined that I couldn’t find anywhere else, have finally paid off. This mill so far has exceeded my expectations and is fun to use. It was so much fun and faster than my old mill that I almost forgot to take pictures! This mill can cut u...

As The Lathe Turns #23: People Spoke, So I Listened

03-24-2013 01:35 AM by William | 27 comments »

For several days now, I have been wanting to glue up some more bowl blanks. It has been cool though. When I say cool, keep in mind I live in Mississippi. It has ranged from the forties at night up to around the mid sixties during the day. I know that during the day it is warm enough to glue, but the temperatures fall below what the glue bottle instructions recommend before it is set. I’ve had a past safety issue with trying to glue material in low temperatures before. So, I won’t ...

Burnt-out Motor

05-27-2013 06:12 AM by chidwickschool | 3 comments »

I’ve always known that I really should be blogging about my woodworking life, but sometimes the thought of starting yet another project (demanding a lot of my time) in the face of so many other things that have immediate priority, has seemed foolish. Indeed, at this very moment I could choose from a list of 20-30 different things that I could work on that would be a smart use of my time. From finishing my home addition (painting, flooring, tile, trim, cabinets etc) to over-due cu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1061: Slowly but Surely

06-17-2013 10:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well folks – after a weekend of pretty much continual painting, I am still only about one third done with the project that I am designing. I don’t remember the exact day I began working on it, but it was sometime in the middle of last week. There were some other work related things that came through in the mean time (a nice wholesale order and doing some printing for my friend Bernie) and that of course took me away from things for a bit, but other than that, I have been trying ...

Step two of the cloudy night in marblewood

07-24-2013 11:15 PM by snoman1973 | 0 comments »

So far I’ve gotten to this point in the whole mess. LOL The pattern is drawn and the rough cutting has been done, as well as the contouring with a dremel to give the clouds more shape. Still need to contour the crescent moon. The sanding and shaping of the piece will take the most time. If there is a better way than what I’m doing PLEASE tell me. :)

The Saga of Pen #22 #2: Day Two

08-10-2013 07:59 PM by TheDane | 1 comment »

The first order of business is to clean up the ends and mill the blanks. Here, another jig comes into play. The polyurethane glue oozes out and bubbles on each end, so I load three pens (6 blanks) at a time into my little milling jig, clamp the package into my end vise, and go after them with my pen mill. Note that the pen mill is a cutting tool, and must occasionally be sharpened. I sharpen mine about every 25 or so pens … sometime more depending on the stock my blanks were made of....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1112: Making Progress

08-25-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I went to fall into bed last night, I walked into my room and immediately noticed how crisp and cool the air was. It would definitely be a night for blankets (and perhaps a cat or two) to keep me warm. This was the first night of the season that felt this way. After a lovely, warm and sunny day, the night temperatures were cool and crisp and on the brink of chilly. Fall is approaching, and it is my favorite time of year. Overall yesterday I had a pretty good day. I got some chores ...

methods of work #16: another steam bending setup

09-11-2013 01:12 AM by Loren | 7 comments »

Mild curve in 1 1/8” kiln dried white oak. You can see here how I dropped a pin in the table and some plastic installer’s shims to push the end tight to the form.
