Wooden box projects and adventures #4: Really getting it closer to completed now!

11-04-2011 07:25 AM by MadJester | 2 comments »

Hello all!! I know it’s been a little while since I’ve blogged, but I have been busy….and I’ve done a bit more work on the small coffin. It’s looking better, but still not quite done yet. I am satisfied (not happy…but it’s all a learning process…)...with the look of the piece. I definitely know what I will do differently in the future!! Here are some updated pics, starting with the top being partially completed, then the first part of the p...

Here it is folks, the purpleheart cross box is officially marked off the to do list. The “Peace Turtle” will be done in a couple of days (hopefully).

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #571: Better Late Than Never

01-02-2012 05:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

The site was down earlier today and I was unable to post my blog. I did write it before I headed out to the gym and this is the first time that I was able to post. (To those of you who wrote – thanks for missing me! :D) I had a great start to the new year yesterday. I spent much of the day at the scroll saw, cutting out my new designs. What I have drawn up is a set of Valentine Conversation Heart ornaments that can be used in many different ways. I love cutting letters, and it wa...

"Automaton" #4: Staging & Mechanics

01-14-2012 05:33 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

I’ve been working on the mechanical parts of the toy this week. I built a 10” x 10” box with mitered corners out of oak. The back drop and other pieces are out of poplar and the stage is 1/4” birch. I used 3/4” birch plywood for the gears and collars and cams with dowels for the different rods and pistons. The back drop will be doweled and glued in place, and I am trying to decide if I want to put the title up there or down on the oak. All the other pi...

The top-secret project..... #7: The Race To The Finish Line

02-20-2012 03:33 AM by MSlumberjocks | 51 comments »

So now that KTMM has his band saw at his shop, and I (William) am left alone with mine, all that is left is for each of us to finish up the details.I must admit, if you’eve kept up with the blog, that I am ahead of him already. So it really isn’t a fair comparison. Still the same though, I though I’d start a new blog entry for the seperate finishing. I’ll post mine here, and I hope KTMM will do the same. I mentioned yesterday, way down at the bottom of the last entr...

An ancient drill press....

03-02-2012 10:11 PM by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Have you guys ever seen an ancient drill press like this one? It’s old…fortunately for more accurate work, I have access to a 24” radial floor model. This drill press in the accompanying photos is so heavy that I had to build a screw jack to raise and lower the drilling head for adjusting it on the column. I try to avoid this at all costs; I build risers for the drilling table. I think I’m going to build one of those that clamps to the column if I ...

mini roubo #1: initial thoughts

03-14-2012 02:16 PM by kaaahl | 1 comment »

Decided to make a workbench for my father for a belated Christmas and birthday gift. (Working on it in the evenings after my brain is fried from writing). The space he has available is small, so I am going to scale it down to be roughly 20” x 60” or a bit longer. Based off of a lot of different elements of a lot of benches. See my note collection here.
