Things I have been doing. #8: Catalog is done

07-22-2011 07:22 PM by CherieLee | 3 comments »

I know I have been slacking on the blog, but I have been busy with the printed version of a catalog in which I have finally completed.I still have to finish up the web site then I can rest up on that a bit. The time to hit the saw is near again. But first, we needed a new refrigerator and that is to be delivered today. The fan went out, and the fridge we have is so old (its green) that parts cannot be ordered for it anymore.I hope everyone is keeping cool one way or another. Have a great ...

Workbench #3: Top finished...well almost

09-02-2011 11:05 PM by MedicKen | 5 comments »

I have spent the past couple of days trying to get a little more done on my new bench. For the most part the top is finished. I added another few strips of maple to it and capped off the ends with some walnut. The ends are held in place with a tongue and a couple of 5/16”x4” lag screws. No glue was used as I didnt want to have a problem with movement later. Next will be gluing up the trestle assembly and then vises. First though will be trip to a local cabinet shop with the top fo...

Here is a picture of my new set up for dust collection.I had to make 2 extra trips to Woodcraft to complete it. I bought the top of the bucket at woodcraft for 22.95 then I had to go back and get 4 fittings, 2 2-1/2 inch fittings then 2 2-1/4 inch fittings. Have already tried it out and I love it. Now on to cleaning the shop again.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #541: The Waiting Game

12-03-2011 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

We all have heard the saying “good things take time” and I am discovering how true that is while finishing my latest project. Yesterday I spent the bulk of my time doing the final sanding and applying mineral oil to the many pieces for my calendar project. As you saw from yesterday’s post, there really were a lot of pieces and it was a slow process. I actually made three sets of overlay pieces for the project. Two were of 1/8” maple and one was of 1/8” Ba...

WorkBench Build #1: Design Sketches

02-07-2012 08:50 PM by Doug McPherson | 2 comments »

My friend and I are in the planning stages of doing a joint, side-by-side build of some new workbenches. This will start with the logs and hiring a guy with a woodmizer to mill the timber in to boards. It looks like we are going to be using red oak, as we are able to get more than enough at the going price of fire/cord wood, then paying $.30/bd ft. to have it rough sawn. So, this won’t begin till next winter after it dries. Here are a couple sketches. No secrets here on the des...
