I go over two techniques to get around with not having a tail vise. If you have other ways, feel free to share them in the comments.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1364: To The Scroll Saw!

07-21-2014 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was able to finish up my drawing yesterday. Whether or not I was able to squeak the project in under the deadline for submissions remains to be seen. I honestly was not sure of the cutoff date, but in some ways (to me, anyway) it didn't really matter. Either way I wanted to create these designs. Either way I win. As time goes by and and I do what I do longer and longer, I have discovered that there are a world of options open for me. I used to get rather tense about deadlines and t...

Furniture #10: Re cycled Jarrah stool Sculpted and sanded stage 1

09-02-2014 10:29 AM by robscastle | 6 comments »

I am a day behind with the progress postings but anyway here we go I used the bandsaw to cut the curves, a sanding disk to do the bits I couldnt reach with the bandsaw then the and Oscillating sander to smooth out everything. Due to the seat being a bit on the thin side I thought it best to add some stiffening, just in case somebody decides to stand on it, not that it would break but hey why take the chance. I didnt take any pictures of the actual rough shaping. Once I had th...

Current Project #14: George's Cajon

10-20-2014 03:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Yes, another cajon. If I keep this up, I’ll eventually be able to make one without fudging anything. Here it is in glue up. The bits of blue tape are my method of indicating which edges I had to put rabbets in. The tape comes off more easily than sanding pencil marks.

Alex's Coffee Table Build Off #2: The complete base

11-12-2014 01:33 AM by Nitreug | 0 comments »

In my last post, I covered the rationale for my design and how I made several cuts mostly on the bandsaw to make one base. I will now discuss in greater detail how I built the rest of the base including the legs and stretcher and how I did the glue up. I left off with this base: Although I made a very similar drawing on my second base none of the line remained after I made a few cuts on the bandsaw. Since I deviated a little bit from the plan, I decided to use the actual first base to c...

Has anyone ever seen a tablesaw like this?

12-05-2014 07:01 AM by lightweightladylefty | 12 comments »

Here’s a tablesaw that is listed for sale on University of Wisconsin surplus. Does anyone have any thoughts about how old? Or do you think it might be someone’s homemade tool? We thought it looked rather interesting, but unsafe.

Speaking Of Addictions...

02-22-2007 06:38 PM by Ethan Sincox | 7 comments »

I’ve spent at least part of each of the last four evenings sitting at the coffee table, watching whatever, sharpening plane blades and chisel blades. I started with my small palm-handled carving chisels. I’ve never really had much luck putting the kind of edge on them I think I should have, so this was a really good chance to just sit there and work on them until I was truly happy with how they looked and felt. I have a few I’d purchased a few weeks ago off of E-Bay to fill in some of my...

The Thoreson Table Challenge...It's now out of the bag

03-28-2007 05:03 PM by Greg3G | 22 comments »

I just received my PW e-newsletter and low and behold….there it is. The Thoreson Table challenge. Martin hold onto you hat, I think the site will be getting busy. I hope everyone has their table planned out. I have an MRI scheduled for Friday on my shoulder (my youthful exhuberance is catching up with me.) so I am not sure if I can get it done in time. I am going to give it my best effort.
