White oak craigslist find and my Swedish redneck pickup.

07-06-2011 05:57 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

The wife told me that I had to build a toddler bed today so I decided to peruse Craigslist and see what turned up. After several searches one caught my eye for 20 white oak boards for 70.00. A couple phone calls later and it turns out the lady was still sitting on them so I hopped in my wagon and headed on over, this was the result Turns out is was 25 boards, 10 are 1×6-8×10’, one is only 1×4x10, 11 are 1×6-8×8’, two are 3×3x6 and one is 3×4x1...

Harmonica case #2: Part 2: How to make wood look like brick

07-20-2011 07:02 PM by gurnie | 3 comments »

I spent some time refining the “brick building” technique. I originally was going to do it with a dremel tool, but the lines weren’t straight enough for my liking. So I did some more experimenting and decided I am hand chiseling this. First I draw my brick marks in pencil. Each brick is about 5/8” long, 1/4” high. I draw out my pattern using a square and a pencil, alternating the pattern up the piece. then i use a chisel to dap along the line N...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #433: A Special Thank You to You All!

08-16-2011 02:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I want to begin today by thanking everyone for the kind and thoughtful wishes that were sent to me yesterday on my birthday. I was (and still am) greatly overwhelmed by the many people here who I consider my friends. I usually don’t think much about my birthday if I can help it. After all, it is just part of life. We have all had ‘birthdays’ or we wouldn’t be here. Usually the day comes and goes for me without a whole lot of thought. For the past several years I ...

School #1: SawStop's Don't Like Nails

08-31-2011 09:54 PM by Michael J. Moore | 19 comments »

Just a quick update, other than boring all of you with shop safety info I’m gonna start off by posting some meat. This week our shop manager had a false trigger with one of our 4 SawStops at the college. Now I think pictures speak louder than words so I’ll just show you the deal. So yeah, don’t run construction grade lumber through your SawStop. It maybe able to cut the occasional brad nail or staple, but as you can see, no framing nails. After all is said and...

Machinist Toolcart #13: Finishing Touch

09-16-2011 03:39 AM by PurpLev | 3 comments »

After realigning the drawers by fixing the slides, and trimming some drawers, I made sure everything fits. I predrilled 3 holes in the drawer fronts through the pull slots that will later be covered, one in the center, and 1 on each side: I transferred the center hole from the drawer front to the drawer and once alignment was satisfactory I transfered the other 2 holes as well: I used my combination square ruler to space the fronts from each other, and made sure that all the dra...
