Trestle Table #2: The Trestle Table Base is Almost Complete

06-22-2012 02:00 PM by Loogie | 1 comment »

I’m on vacation from work this week so I’ve been able to get quite a few hours of work in the shop. The base for this table is from a big maple tree my next door neighbor had cut down to put a pool in. I cut mortise and tenon joints for the leg-to-foot joint, which I will also draw-bore, and a notched bridle joint for leg-to-brace joint…

Guitars, and such. #2: more....more....more Guitars..

07-22-2012 04:21 AM by Chardt | 6 comments »

Hi my name is Carl and I’m a Guitaraholic…I scoff at the idea of having ‘enough’ guitars…is there even such a thing? It like saying is there ever enough cheese on your Nacho’s? ....of course not. But this is about the woodworking aspect of making guitars…or in my case..lots and lots of guitars. Many luthiers use C&C machines, and specialized equipment to make their guitars identical….while I can appreciate that…I really like maki...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #807: Doing the Math

09-04-2012 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I must admit it isn’t one of my strong points. For as long as I remember, I really don’t like doing numbers. I suppose that I get by well enough. After all, I have made it through over half a century and done OK. But being a small business owner and watching the business grow means that it is no longer optional to stay on top of the figures and keep track of things along the way. After all, how can I make intelligent business decisions if I don’t have full and accurate...

Saturday afternoon shopworks!

09-22-2012 09:58 PM by jjw5858 | 2 comments »

Autumn sails its way into late September as I was joyfully surprised at some random pieces my Father cut down in our woods that sat in front of the shop. He found a wonderful twisted piece of Sassafras that just begged to be honed into a hiking stick! I took the hatchet to certain areas and relieved some bark and sapwood where I thought best and with a little hewing and shaving I had a very rustic and different looking hiking stick for new paths on cooler days. The finished piece was just ...

Rule #1 (not what you think)

10-27-2012 02:56 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 11 comments »

A lot has been written about safety in the workshop. We all know there is no more important rule than to wear safety glasses. Breathing protection, hearing protection, blade guards, riving knives and many other things are mentioned repeatedly. But tonight I just happen to be in the mood to talk about MY number ONE safety rule: when to not go in to the shop. As may be deduced from my username and avatar, my work often has me up at all hours of the day and night. So it should be no surpr...
