in the workshop #1: My shop

01-01-2012 03:45 AM by Loren | 9 comments »

My current shop is a 2 car garage. I’ve made some sacrifices to keep the space workable and have the machinery in there I want. I have no router table, but I can use my shaper or the Woodrat or the little green overarm router made for the printing industry. The cyclone dust collector, made from the plan first published in Wood Magazine in 1997, takes up surprisingly little floor space. Running the ducts hung from the ceiling is the only viable solution but there are more bends i...

The Basement #23: The Wall - Part 2

01-25-2012 04:15 AM by JL7 | 4 comments »

I few updates made since this post: The Wall. I did acquire some free cabinets and bolted them to the ceiling – everything else is on the french cleats. Can be also called the wall of unfinished projects as there are several mixed in there….. A bit of “special” lumber stored under the counter…....:) Sorry for the crappy photos – just can’t get the lighting right…........ Thanks for looking. Jeff

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Stanley No: 40 Brace- Refurbishment #1: My Stanley No: 40 Brace

03-12-2012 09:20 PM by Johnnyblot | 22 comments »

This is a photo taken with my iPhone of the brace being refurbished. I’m really just getting to grips with downloading using the iPhone and Photobucket?? Hopefully it is successful? OMG it works! In this pic you get a closer look at the chuck body- This is held in a ‘cheapo’ vice I bought from ‘ALDI’ (Wal-Mart, but even cheaper, to our American cousins) years ago. It is very handy cos you can adjust it to suit what you are doing. It originally had...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #662: A Nice Quick Little Project

04-05-2012 10:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was spent getting things ready for the site update. Between finishing up the patterns for the new stuff, designing and cutting the new free pattern that I am offering and even drawing up a couple of additional quick designs it kept me pretty busy. I finished the pattern for the calendar topper and that is about ready to go. It came out to be 22 pages long, and includes all 12 months. I left the April and December months for Easter and Christmas respectively, as people can stil...

Porch Glider #11: The Home Stretch

05-06-2012 03:25 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

As of writing this, the porch glider is 100% assembled – no more wood to cut, no more screws to screw. Just a lot of detail work and then the outdoor oil goes on. First up, views of the armrests and the brace that ties them together across the back. I left the piece of wood to the left in order to give me something to brace against when gluing up. I used two wood shims to force the wood up against the shoulder of the other piece, ensuring a perfect 90 degree angle. Once the glue drie...

The old time woodshop journals #4: Sawdust sunday temple (Always stop and listen to the bells)

05-20-2012 08:26 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

This morning was a sunny and clear day out…....the kind of day that actually fit the season. Our earth is ever changing, it seems these days people all over the map are in store for surprises from mother nature, some scary and some just plain hard to figure out…lol. I was driving in my truck…it was crazy out, cars all over, people hustling and racing everywhere. It’s so hard not to find yourself becoming the same way…. impatient, hurried and a bit stressed. ...

slow but sure

06-06-2012 05:22 AM by James Alberding | 4 comments »

So I decided to create a new blog for talking about ongoing additions to my attempt at a workshop. My posts on my current project, Jakes chair, has seemed to be talking a lot about the workshop situation. I’m planning on doing more and more to my shed to make it a work space over time, and another blog contributes to the LJ site I think. I really like this site and want to contribute even though I am a really novice woodworker, and don’t dedicate a ton of time to it as of now. ...

Historic Woodworker Videos #8: Pear Wood - Woodworker's Delight

06-21-2012 01:07 PM by Hoosierwoodcraft | 2 comments »

This video started with an examination of a musical recorder patterned after Phillippe Bolton; and a look back and back to the process of how one pear tree made the wood for this instrument. It is a tribute to the “wood” in the term: “woodworker”. This video can be found at
