Building a Spray Booth for $160

1287 days ago by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Hey Jocks! The first post in a series detailing a woodworker’s portable spray booth that I’ve built is here. The design is based Michael Dresdner’s post on Fine Woodworking. I thought I had some original ideas to improve on this, but then I saw Jeff Jewitt’s book Spray Finishing Made Simple. You can build this booth for about $160 with supplies from your local big box store and scraps laying around your shop. Head over to my blog and check it out! Matt GradwohlUpper Cut Woodworksh...

Wood Gloat: One Man Gathers What Another Man Spills...

And so it goes, according to Jerry Garcia! Is Karma involved here? Anyhoo, I was at one of few places in the city that actually has some interesting hardwoods. Their main focus is moldings, and they have an offcut box that generally goes unnoticed, but I have bought quite a few shorts of 2×6 maple and poplar, the ends of slabs that have checking or fade and unworthy/unsafe to put through their molders and shapers. They usually charge me a buck apiece, but today a sales clerk I’...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #316: Sharing Through Teaching

1216 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am very pleased that you all liked the short videos that I posted yesterday. It shows me that there are lots of people who are interested in scroll sawing and would like to learn more about it. It also makes me want to do more teaching and help people understand how much fun and how relaxing scroll sawing can be. Earlier this week, I received some wonderful pictures from my friends Erwin and Edith (Bearpie here on Lumberjocks.) While I was away, I had received a message from Erwin tha...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #12: ABD

1204 days ago by Eric | 4 comments »

In the academic world, the term ABD is almost a dreaded one. It stands for "All But Dissertation" and refers to that point in your Ph.D. studies where you’ve done all the coursework and all of the research, have defended your research proposal, and “merely” have to do your dissertation to finish your degree. As for me, I am now officially ABD in regards to my workbench: All But Dovetails. I have glued up 24 out of the 28 boards for my benchtop. I now need to cut the dovet...

Wood and I….Sculpture ….while walking down the isles of life’s design,i was roiled enough to loose my way on a walk-about,the forest and trees no-longer fed this hunger within,and for days becoming years my dreams died as inaesthetic…. ….that was in-deed the hole i dug until i had no-strength dig deeper,what came next was confronting my dragon and refusing his lies any-more,so i went back to the woods fearing to hope and believe what i might find,what i found was that ...

Shelf pin template $0.69

1167 days ago by LegendInMyOwnMind | 5 comments »

This might not be the world’s cheapest template, but it’s got to be pretty nearly the cheapest. For my Stickley Inspired Entertainment Center I needed to drill about a hundred shelf support holes to hold up the three shelves. I bought a yardstick, cut it to length and had my son drill holes every one inch. We then used it on the drill press as a template to drill the shelf support holes. It worked out great and we have a nice template for next time we need a bunch of eve...
