Shop Organisation #3: Saw Blade Storage

08-11-2014 06:01 PM by woodoogolem | 4 comments »

Before buying a regular table saw I seldom changed saw blades on my skill saws as I mostly had the right blade in one of the saws. Now I need to change more often and for that reason I built an easily accessible storage rack based on Jay Bates' video. I altered the sizes according to my blades and the material I had lying around.

Education #2: Sidetable part 2

09-02-2014 12:59 PM by CreekOne | 2 comments »

After a day of laying parquet i realise that the angle is off, just slight but enough to make the herringbone pattern a bit off. So now im building a shooting board to fix this problem… You have to love how you always enda upp building all crazy jigs with extreme presition and it all fails with a wobbling sawblade.

Fully Off Axis Stem Goblet (work in progress)

10-20-2014 08:06 PM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...

Hello and THank you

01-12-2007 12:00 AM by Shawn | 0 comments »

TO all the “Old Guard” not sure why I’m calling you guys that, but it brings a smile to my face. THank you for all the great comments and encouraging words. Aussie Don, it will be interesting to find out if I know any of your family over here, small world for sure. I’ve finally managed to post a not that great pic of my end table. I’ll start documenting all my projects from here on out so that I can post interesting write ups and show my progression as a wood...

"Wood and Steel Make Harmony" --by RusticWoodArt

02-23-2007 03:33 PM by frank | 2 comments »

”Wood and Steel Make Harmony” this flurry of early mornings glow light, there is the remembering of last nights latish work light, as i sat my mind in fever of airt, so as to satisfy this passion of burning fire…. —-oh burn thou well o fire within my soul, as i am transformed in shifted images of where i go, be thou my souls guiding light and i will take thee close to me, since from the heart of man i have burst this cage that held me in…. —...

Thorsen Table Challenge #10: Making pegs my way !

05-01-2007 05:35 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

Today I tried making pegs for the false shallow holes. I had alot of trouble doing it the way the plan instructed. I would get chip out when carving the facets on the plugs. I’m using Walnut, maybe Ebony wouldn’t do this because it’s more dense. So I setup my disk sander miter to 30 degrees, & sanded my 3/8” stock to a point. Then I cut to the hole depth, & tapped them in with hammer with a dab of glue. Here’s a short video of how I used my disk san...

Report on Greg3G

06-01-2007 04:25 PM by Karson | 9 comments »

I just got off the phone with Greg. The surgery went find. They took his cartilage that was torn and stretched it and reattached it to the shoulder. He said it was not a fun thing to do. But, he is feeling much better. We talked for about 30 minutes and he said that the talking was a relief from pain. I’m sure that he’d like to talk to some lumberjocks. I didn’t ask about this but if you’d like to call. send me a an e-mail at and I&...

"Wood Tales From Beyth ha-`Emeq" --by RusticWoodArt #4: "What the Wood has Wrote" --by RusticWoodArt

07-07-2007 02:10 PM by frank | 4 comments »

What the Wood has Wrote ....and so once again i heard the song of the tree, where many numerous wood spirits run free, and out in the distance of gathered-cluttered there came a decree, “what one beholds ‘just is’ a begotten field of wood for other’s to sightsee”.... —-and so I decided to take a waundering walk, out in the outback of my mind that is filled with all the wonders of beauty, far from the duties of time that have often come knocking at my...

Steal of a deal?

10-15-2007 06:40 PM by A.W. "Pappy" Ford | 6 comments »

Been looking hard for deals on a bandsaw. I’d prefer to buy new, but unfortunately that’s been freaking out Ye Olde Master of Budgetary Concerns. Then this shows up on Craigslist last night for $300 for all three items: I’ve written the seller for more details on year, model numbers, etc., but my novice eye thinks they look in decent condition. No idea how if Central Machinery has a rep for quality or not. Any thou...
