Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #1: Dimensioning the panel pieces

10-19-2017 02:49 PM by Reinan | 2 comments »

Starting a new project for my recently married cousin and his lovely bride, who just got their first house. Figured a nice table as a Christmas/House-Warming present would be we received, as they are young and just starting out in life. I have the main panel/top pieces dimensioned to width, though not final length. The plan is to draw bore breadboard ends in walnut to frame the maple. Next step is making a few clamping caul sets to hold the panel flat while gluing. While I am worki...

Lowboy Build #4: planing the legs to size.

02-08-2015 02:27 AM by JeremyPringle | 0 comments »

Since getting the #7 tuned up and finally sharpening the blade for my jack plane I have spent quite a bit of time planning the legs. My max size is 2 15/16. I have to flatten one side, then square up an edge; then square up and dimension the other edge. From there I scribed the final thickness and started planning. The #7 is pretty heavy, so I have been using the jack for most of the grunt work. I know this is a pretty boring operation and generally not one worth having an entry. But&...

Box Joint Key Cubbies

02-09-2015 11:33 PM by Matt Lane | 0 comments »

My project for this week was to make cubbies for the coat rack I finished last week. I used my incra i box jig to make them. I made a few errors and had a couple small gaps but overall I was pretty pleased with my first small boxes. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDOgx--lUeI

IncraGauge vs the new WoodRiver Offset Gauge

02-13-2015 05:43 AM by MrToolHunter | 0 comments »

I guess I’m just not going to find the time to write posts, so how about I share a video I posted on my “MrToolHunter” Youtube Channel. In this video I share my most-used lay-out tool, the IncraGauge, and take a quick look at Woodcraft’s new WoodRiver Offset Gauge.http://youtu.be/vdxetoT3kVM

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1498: Snowed In

02-16-2015 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I never mind the snow very much. Being from Chicago, I am used to polar temperatures as well as blistering heat and humidity. Anyone who grew up in Chicago knows that it is just part of life, and the old saying "if you don't like the weather – just wait – it will be different in a couple of hours" is one that really put things in perspective living in The Windy City.  I suppose that is why I take things like the weather in stride. When I moved here to Nova Scoti...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #33: Soft-head Mallet

02-22-2015 03:46 AM by technoslick | 3 comments »

Soft-head Mallet I just finished making a soft-head mallet for the dungeon workshop. It was formed from the unholy mating of hemlock (the head) and a 30 year seasoned beech branch (the handle). No electricity was used in making this mallet and nothing alive was killed in the process. Hopefully, this will keep the townspeople from paying me a visit with torches in hand. ‪#‎woodworking‬ ‪#‎woodmallets‬ http://youtu.be/b4bLDVlqZBk

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1506: I'll Have a Scoop of Spring - (Make Mine a Triple!)

02-26-2015 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

You all know that I never mind winter. In fact – I actually LIKE it most times and try to enjoy every season and day that comes my way. But when yesterday's beautiful, white and fluffy snow turned into an icy rain, and I looked at my pretty red car encased up to the dash in a block of frozen snow, I couldn't help but think ahead to warmer days. It happens to the best of us. One of the many advantages of being active on social media – especially when you are a member o...

the broken carpenter #3: Big Progress

03-01-2015 03:41 AM by SquintyPolock | 0 comments »

The Broken Carpenter. Funny to think, I felt quite broken when I came up with that blog title. It’s been a year since; and I feel very much changed. Last year, my family and I moved to a new house, mostly we moved due to family issues, and mostly we wanted to move. But, a little bit, neither my wife nor I really wanted to move. When we finally left, it hurt. There is still bad family blood to this day. And I say to everyone out there that love is grand!! Anyways… We landed in t...

Banquette build....my first furniture attempt #2: Almost done (Bad first time blogging)

03-30-2015 04:16 AM by Woodchuck4 | 5 comments »

So, I feel like my first blog attempt was a failure to anyone that read the first one and was interesting in seeing it progress. The first of this series was like show starting and then being cancelled after episode one ha. Enough of my rambling. After two years, a new job, two little additions to the family, and a few other projects crammed in front of this one I am almost done. Being 100% honest some of the delay was from intimidation and frustration as well. I took a REALLY big bite...
