Workshop news, and planing

09-15-2013 12:51 PM by ejvc | 1 comment »

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have visited my friendly LJ spot. I’ve now moved to a house in a small town in Sweden. In the basement is a room called a workshop, which has a giant plywood table in the middle, very sturdy, not very me but I don’t want to get rid of it yet. But, in the attic of the guest house is a carpenters bench, yes indeedy. And, before I knew that, I managed to score a small bench (I suspect a school had it) for Charlotte, for the equivalen...

New Shop #6: Working in it

10-04-2013 11:56 PM by johnstoneb | 9 comments »

I believe my new shop is finished (more or less). I have finished the loft, railing on the stairs, and have installed and vented the pellet stove and it is heating the shop in the mornings. We’ve gone from 100 degree days to 60 degrees in a couple of days. Here is a couple pictures of the inside. 16’ x24’ is a little light but it forces me to keep things cleaned up and put up. The loft works pretty well for tool storage until I can get some cabinets on th...

giving the local Kids something they can be there own #1: Christmas Tree Ornaments

10-30-2013 04:20 PM by Jim Earl | 4 comments »

For the last five years I have given Blank Christmas tree Ornaments to the local Grade school across from me. My GrandChildrenn has been going over there and I still have three going over there and one at another grade school. I do this for them to paint and keep for there own, I know not all children celebrate Christmas but that does stop the schools and everywhere else from decorating so I figure that while I made them to sell, I would give them to my grandchildrens classes, well that grew ...

The Restoration of a 1961 Mobile Scout Travel Trailer

11-18-2013 01:08 AM by TaybulSawz | 10 comments »

In November of 2012 my Son called me about the purchase of a 1961 Mobile Scout travel trailer. I had no Idea what one was. He said something about a “Canned Ham” I thought it was something we could EAT!!! Boy was I wrong. Any way he said they could be worth quite a bit of money once they were restored and fixed up. I told him I’d think about it. I began to “Google” the subject and found that the Mobile Scout trailers were not all that common but were fairl...

My Site #45: Shop Time with Ron Hock

12-06-2013 04:26 AM by RavinHeart | 0 comments »

While wondering around and drooling over all the wonderful tools at Woodworking in America, I stopped and had a chat with Ron Hock. I also asked him to have another conversation for the podcast, and he agreed. Ron’s company Hock Tools makes what I consider the best woodworking blades available today. During our conversation we get to discuss how he got started making plane blades, sharpening, his new knife kits, and much more. If you have questions for Ron or myself, feel free to com...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1203: All Is Calm . . .

12-26-2013 12:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

In many ways this Christmas was different than Christmases past. Yet in some ways, it was familiar. As time goes on and yet another Christmas season comes and goes, I realize more than ever that life is constantly changing. With those changes come the reality that things will never again be as it has been in the past. While that is certainly a good thing in some ways – as all of our memories of past holiday celebrations aren’t always that wonderful – it also means that th...

Shop Notes #2: Shop Notes #2 Screwed Up Again!

01-12-2014 01:19 AM by DocSavage45 | 19 comments »

No deep thoughts while out in the shop today. Just cleaning up about a pint of paint that was spread across my floor. It’s porous old concrete so it took me about 2 and a half hrs. I am going back into private practice. No money, just my energy. I have a sign that was left by the previous tenant. My wife graciously cut stencils with her new cutting machine. Last night I searched for paint while feeding my pride of cats in the shop. been about 8 months since I painted. found a can ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1258: Choosing a Direction

03-01-2014 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I had a good day yesterday, working on a couple of different things at once. I have several new designs that I have been thinking about and trying to figure out which one to do first is sometimes the most difficult part of the process. I find myself going round and round about each one and it finally gets to a point where I realize it and just stop and pick one and jump in and draw. That usually gets things moving in a positive direction. The designs that I have been thinking about are no...

Objective 1: Shop! #1: From junk garage to woodshop makeover

03-20-2014 03:14 AM by garage_woodworker | 13 comments »

Hi, My name is Ashish and I live in Virginia. My first project was a simple platform bed for my king bed frame which I made out of plywood painted espresso, 2×4s and nails with porter cable 4-in-1 set and using backyard A/C units as sawhorses. Last summer a water leak in my junk-filled-garage wall caused mold and destroyed part of drywall and part roof. After fixing the leak, tearing out bad drywall, and treating mold, I decided to clean up my garage and turn it into a woodshop like I...
