Two very different planes. A Shelton Block plane Just a little on the rusty side. Another look? Being steel instead of cast iron, yep, it do get a bit orange. The second plane is a little bit bigger, though.. Looks like a new knob will have to be turned. A nice RED frog.. Seems to be alright. Big silver adjuster wheel. Chrome everywhere. Blue paint around the Craftsman logo. Looks like i will have some fun with this clean up. Got out the tools, the bel...

$2 Shop Improvement

10-04-2013 06:35 PM by Chris Moellering | 4 comments »

So I’m at the grocery store this week and I walk past the light bulbs. I stop and look… I come home with 2 200 watt bulbs and replace the 2 75 wat bulbs in my garage/workshop. Wow. I feel like I’m on stage now. Can see everything nice and clear. Even if it’s warm enough to have the overhead door open, I feel well let in contrast to outside. Wish I had done this months ago!

An Afternoon in the Shop with Lily

01-01-2013 05:10 PM by Lee Barker | 12 comments »

She’s 7—the second oldest of our universe of six grandchildren. I got to hold her the day she was born. We decided on a play date the last afternoon of 2012. Over quesadillas and rice and beans we talked about what we might build or do. Once we got to the shop, she decided she had an idea. Ok, I admit it, I posed the picture. Birdhouse. You’ve got to start somewhere. If she said, “scale model of a Frank Lloyd Wright house” or “prototype air powe...

Birthday Baby Doll Bed #4: Bad stain, naughty stain! Get back in your can!

01-28-2013 02:19 AM by JohnnySplinterfinger | 2 comments »

Why, why, why, why, WHY do I think of all the best ways of doing stuff after I’ve already blown apart my first idea? It’s like I can see the future every freakin’ time, but it has to be fueled by making a mistake though. So, hm… taking this thing apart might be a bit of a challenge at this point. Unless I misread the Titebond label about set time…last night. ahem Well then, right-o… I’ve got the fix for this. No, not really, but I’ve m...

A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion #15: Light At The End of the Tunnel ?

04-10-2013 03:31 AM by RonInOhio | 1 comment »

Or is that a train ? Currently am in the process of taking down the old siding and applying a fanfold moisture barrier on the sheathing . The old siding is being replaced with new siding sheets that will run down the entire wall to within a few inches of the ground. The old siding will be reused on a lumber storage lean-to, which is to be build in the future. ASAP. Why am I replacing the siding ? The old siding stopped short about 10 inches from the bottom. A 2×10 framed out the bo...

Hand Tool Journey #16: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 4.. Almost There..

05-12-2013 04:05 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

Well I have a fully functioning Layout Compass now :D. All that is left is to do the shaping of the legs and some purtification of them. I am still working out the details of the purtification but in the end they should be pretty purty lol. All the pieces laid out with epoxy curing on the pins.. So today was filled with frustration and epoxy and a lot of brass dust. It started with cleaning up the mortise that the arc goes through and embedding the head of a copper rivet into the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1045: Nativity Key Ornaments Finished

05-28-2013 11:02 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I really want to thank everyone for all the nice comments on the Christmas box project that I posted yesterday. It meant a great deal to me – especially after the issues that I had with making it. There were times when I thought that I may abandon the idea of doing it altogether, and I am really happy that I stuck with it. In figuring some things out, I feel that it will open the door for future box designs using that construction method. As I said – it is a challenge to make ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1062: A New Box of "Pretty"

06-18-2013 10:36 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today will be a quick blog. I am still working on my painting project and making some progress, but I think it will take me at least until the end of the week to finish. So far, so good though and I am really getting excited seeing the pieces come to life. We had some errands in Digby yesterday, which meant taking the time to make the drive into town. It may not seem like a lot, but with so much to do here, it always seems to be a big deal to get away for even part of the day. We try to ...
