Dovetail Tales #2: The Left-handed Moxon or A Study in Bad Design Decisions

09-13-2013 10:24 PM by GeBeWubya | 4 comments »

I saw a description of a double screw Moxon vise made from a pair of handscrew clamps in a recent issue of Popular Woodworking and thought it would be a useful addition to my shop. I had some seldom used handscrew clamps and a 4’ Oak 3/4” x 5 1/2”, so off I went. My first bad decision came when I considered how to remove one of the handscrews from the clamps. The clamps are designed so that the handles on the screws stop the opening of the clamp before the screw...

Card Box Giveaway through Fine Woodworking

11-16-2013 03:11 PM by Dennis Zongker | 13 comments »

Yes, It is true I’m giving away my Card Box and a copy of my book through Fine Woodworking. This will be hard for me to part with this box. But we decided a while back to have this part of the promotion for my book Wooden Boxes. I would feel better knowing that one of my Lumberjock Buddy’s could own this box from my collection. The editors from Fine woodworking will have a computer pick a random person that has entered the Giveaway. Well, good luck Lumberjocks, I hope the...

SCMS stand w/ folding wings #9: TLC for the SCMS

01-10-2014 02:45 PM by Mainiac Matt | 4 comments »

While waiting for Incra T-track plus to make my fence, I’m doing some maintenance on the SCMS itself. I haven’t said much about this saw, so here’s a quick review….. Milwaukee 6496 10” SCMS I purchased this new in ‘96 from Woodworkers Whse, in a package deal with a stand for ~$400. Milwaukee chop saws and sliders were the king of the hill back then, as the only dual miter SCMS on the market, with the motor mounted high and belt drive, was the ...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #6: Striping the old fabric and padding off

01-26-2014 02:37 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 7 comments »

I left one chair fully upholstered and I stripped one to the bone a year ago. No it doesn’t take a year ;) I just stripped it and stashed it. That means I don’t have any current pictures to show you. I’ll need to come back to this post and flesh it out later. In the meantime, I put together an incomplete blog series on home refurbers. Since we weren’t getting much readership over there, I got lazy and didn’t flesh it out like I plan on doing here. This is actu...

Walnut Bread Box with Marquetry #1: Let us break bread together ...

04-04-2014 03:35 AM by Harriman | 3 comments »

Well, hello everyone. I’m new to Lumberjocks and happy to be a part of the community (I always wanted to be a jock!). I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of the process as I build a bread box for a friend from my college years. (It’s the least I can do since I missed his 40th birthday.) I was casting about for design ideas when my lovely wife reminded me that the lid to our bread box had just recently fallen with a crash onto the kitchen floor. Looks like I’m going to...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #9: The Assembly/Outfeed Table

04-23-2014 01:53 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1318: Random Thoughts

05-16-2014 11:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

This week has been rather strange. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it didn't have the usual 'flow'.  It seems that I was fluttering from here to there and while I was accomplishing some things, I don't quite feel that I was as organized as I could be and therefore not as efficient.  My writings here have felt strange as well. I feel as if I have been all over the place work-wise, so reporting to you all each day only exemplifies that I am not in a pla...
