My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #93: Time To Batten Down the Hatches

09-04-2010 12:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I am going to be typing fast today. I was awaken this morning, not by the distant call of the rooster, but by the persistent pounding of the wind and the rain announcing hurricane Earl at my door. I had some great news to talk about, but I may save it for tomorrow. I want to keep things short today (If there is such a thing where I am concerned!). The storm should be with us most of the day, and already the winds are picking up. It seems ironic because it was another night of stagnan...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #30: Back to Basics

09-16-2010 06:45 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

Taking it back to the basics… how the machine works and what type of power tools can be used on the TWC.. Let us look to Stuart Lees from Stu’s Shed. Stu … while still a hobbyist woodworker… has an engineering background ..and thus an understanding of how the TWC works and how it could be used by woodworkers as is shown by the videos he has made since he received his first TWC. Now over the last few weeks Stu has posted a few videos of the basics of the Torque Wo...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #12: It's been a while

10-11-2010 05:36 PM by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Hey All!Yes, it has been a while since my last blog about working in the can. This one, I hope will be short as there is not a lot that has changed in the can. I have told you all about the tools I have bought and my plans to insulate the can in the hopes of maintaining a bearable work environment. I can tell you that there has been some really HOT days this summer, which literally drove me out of the can. No wind, high humidity on some days, and temps hovering around 100 degree’s pr...

Their First Woodworking Show

12-12-2010 06:10 AM by Patrick Jaromin | 6 comments »

The annual woodworking show is this town weekend and I was determined to stop in to pick up some basic supplies that I can’t typically find locally in bulk. I thought it might be fun to bring the older two kids along. This turned out to be a great idea as the show ended up being more about them! The main attraction for the kids were the booths from the local clubs and associations. The Fox Valley woodworkers and DuPage Woodworkers club members paid extra attention to them, one giving...

My new Roubo #8: Starting on the joinery

01-18-2011 06:09 AM by JasonD | 5 comments »

Because I train and teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu between 4 – 6 nights a week, I don’t get as much time in the shop as I’d like some times. We had a 3-day weekend this past weekend, but I wasn’t able to get any time in the shop on Saturday. Our head instructor came down from Hattiesburg for a seminar and that is an all-day affair with us all going out to eat afterwards and spending the evening hanging out around a fire in the back yard. I did get to put a good bit of time ...

Shop to Shop

01-30-2011 04:01 AM by DaveLeHardt | 2 comments »

My wife regularly asks me to cut her some rectangular boards for her for the mixed media art she likes making. So today while getting some odds and ends for stool I’m building for a step grand nephew (I think that’s right; blended families can be challenging, anyways…) my sister asked me to build. So after giving the board a quick pass thru the jointer and planer, it was cut to be about 8 in square blocks. To pretty up the ends I took my smoothing and block plan to the lo...
