Grandfather Clock

02-09-2011 11:07 PM by Daniel Barnes | 10 comments »

First I want to start by saying that I have not been on here in over a year. Well I have been pretty busy. My wife became pregnant with TWINS. The pregnancy went great and we were blessed with 2 very healthy boys. Henry Edward and Gavin Thomas were born 21 Dec 2010. They just turned a year old. Also in Aug. I started attending a Cabinet Making/ woodworking class for the next two years. It is at a technical school about 30 min away. I decided to take this class to sharpen my skills as ...

Who's headed to the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Gaithersburg, MD?

05-03-2011 05:46 PM by acanthuscarver | 4 comments »

Just thought I’d see if any of my fellow Lumberjocks are headed out to Exotic Lumber, Inc. in Gaithersburg, MD for the Lie-Nielsen hand tool event this Friday and Saturday (May 6 & 7). Raney Nelson of Daed Toolworks will be exhibiting as well. As an added bonus (if you can call it that), I’ll be premiering the new DVD I made for Popular Woodworking Magazine called “Cabriole Legs Simplified”. I won’t have copies of the DVD for sale but you can pre-order a copy...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #15: Added depth gauge

05-26-2011 01:12 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

I went to Harbor Freight and bought the clamping dial indicator with vice grips and gooseneck extension. It’s really pretty cool. Here’s a couple of pictures. A couple of FWIWs… - Although the goose-neck does adjust, there’s a pretty limited range on it.- There are surprisingly few spots to clamp that allow the goose-neck to reach “just right”.- No matter where I put the gauge on the back fence, it’s going to interfere with somethi...

A long running project nears completion #3: Carving the Top

07-07-2011 11:15 PM by Tony | 0 comments »

I used my drill press to drill many holes based on the rough contour of the guitar, as suggested in Benedetto’s book “Making an Archtop Guitar”. I then began slicing away the waste wood with a Flexcut gouge. It was very slow, but satisfying work. Once I had the rough contour, I began using a luthier’s finger plane and a Veritas convex spokeshave to carve the top to the final contour, finishing it off with cabinet scrapers. The final photo in this sequence shows the top...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #423: Another Lesson Up - Back to Drawing

08-06-2011 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It is funny how quickly the seasons begin to change. While so many people are going through sweltering heat, I have noticed a definite coolness in the morning air. Even if the temperatures get quite warm in the afternoon, the days are already starting off with a crispness that is reminiscent of autumn. It won’t be long. I find it is noticeably darker in the mornings too. It is almost back to the point where seeing full daylight as my eyes open in the morning will mean that I am ...

The house purchase is in motion and a new workshop is on the horizon. One day soon you’ll cease to hear all my whinning about not having a shop. :)

Wood Magazine November Issue

10-04-2011 02:31 AM by David Craig | 6 comments »

I received the latest issue of Wood in the mail today. As everyone knows, Martyn's Zee is featured in this month’s issue. Very good article on his EZ Mitre technique and more than a brief nod at the box maker himself. Wood has also provided some space on their website to showcase some of Martyn’s work. Congrats Martyn, once again, on the recognition of your work and the ingenious methods you have invented in order to create them. David
