My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1009: Yesterday's Progress

375 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Today I am just going to post a couple of pictures. I made good strides yesterday, and I can see the finish line in sight. Some of the pictures aren’t the best, but after everything is finished, I will be sure to get the lighting as good as I can and take some really nice ones. The first tray that I will show is the “Love, Hope and Faith” tray. I did this one in 1/2” ash and even though it is probably the simplest of this group of designs, I think it looks pretty...

Shop Vacumn Cart #1: The beginning

343 days ago by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Florence, AL – Went yesterday and purchased a sheet of 3/4 plywood to begin the cart project. Got it home last evening and started breaking it down to size on the cut table. Had to stop several times and revise the Sketchup drawing since I had originally drew the project based on dimensions from a set of plans from Woodsmithplans. My shopvac is significantly larger than the one used in the original design of the cart. Today will finish cutting the components to size and making the ...

Green and Green door with stained glass

325 days ago by mbs | 2 comments »

We’re slowly changing the decor of our summer home to G&G. The newest project is a door to our bedroom. We have a door there now but it’s an exterior door with glass which doesn’t provide much privacy. I bought some mahogany door rail and stile material at an auction. It’s made of 5/16” skins on a plywood core. I also bought some rough 4/4 mahogany which I’m not that happy with but I only need it for molding and possibly the door frame. I cut...

Finding junk, using junk, practicing hand joinery.

304 days ago by Buckethead | 2 comments »

So now I’m a blogger. If my dearly departed Mom were still alive, I’m sure she would read it. She’d give rave reviews too. So I’m working, rehabbing an office space for a medical practice to utilize while their new multi million dollar complex is being built, and by the dumpster is a hideous cabinet of some sort. Mostly veneered particle board, but upon closer inspection, there is a bit of hardwood to be had. Now I pride myself in doing full service for a client....

Chibi's Storage Cabinet #1: Case and Drawer Building

285 days ago by mitchota | 0 comments »

I haven’t had a chance to do any woodworking whatsoever since I built my router table. Things got busy, the garage got messy, and I had flooring to put down in my room that I was renovating. Now that the room is just about finished, it’s time to start thinking about furnishing it. I gave up a small closet in my room that will be for my pet cat’s litter box and I wanted a storage solution to hide away the bag of litter and give me some storage room for other items like some t...

Great little tool.....

268 days ago by cajunpen | 6 comments »

I hate doing this, but I think that this pen is so awesome that it is almost a “must have” for anyone working in the trades or a home shop. I’ve had my online pen business for the past 14 years and this is the first time I’ve found a product that I thought my fellow LumberJocks might be interested in. It is 9 tools in one premium quality writing instrument. It features a heavyweight, 6-sided barrel that houses: Soft-Roll ballpoint penStylus top on end for touch...

build log (mini pie safe (small pastery storage)) #2: day 2 progress

251 days ago by hobby1 | 2 comments »

Hi Mike , thankyou. Today I finished gluing up the doors, gave them a good sanding and hung them. I built the doors to have a 1/16” reveal on the top bottom and hinge side, however on the hinge side I didn’t mortise them into the frame or door, so that leaves around 1/4” gap, that needs to be filled in , so I cut some 1/8” thick strips and glued them on the hinge side, to close the gap to make it look more appealing. then worked on a dra...

Shop Tools #16: New Plane Stanley 5 1/4c

237 days ago by WayneC | 7 comments »

Just documenting this plane. It will fill this slot in my bench plane family until I get crazy lucky and find a 605 1/4 in the wild or have extra money to plunk down on the LN version of the plane. I am upgrading from a post WW2 version of the plane. This one is an early example and it is corrugated. If you take Patrick Leech at his word this is the scarcest (5 1/4 corrugated plane) of the Stanley bench planes. Unfortunately this one has been drilled to hang on the wall. More info c...

Tool Chest Refurb #15: And We're Ready for Hardware!

219 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Left off last time looking like this: After pulling clamps and doing some trim work first at the bench… And then at the chest with the Stanley #278 in chisel plane mode… The chest is now looking like this: Tills are marked for pulls, then I’ll add finish and it’ll be reveal time… Until then, thanks for following along!
