On the Mill #6: Mobility

08-16-2014 07:47 PM by ScottShaeffer | 1 comment »

I’m putting together a video series for Norwood Sawmills that’s all about wood – from tree to finished product. I’ll look at logging (from several perspectives), milling (from several perspectives), lumber treatment, and woodworking (from several perspectives). I’m very excited to have the honor of producing this series and I hope I can do all of my fellow craftsmen proud. This link will take you to the second teaser on YouTube. After the video is over, it will a...

Walnut Slab Coffee table #2: The Router Sled

09-08-2014 01:06 AM by ilyac | 4 comments »

After a few feeble attempts at using a belt sander and a hand plane ( as if that was going to work) I decided to build a router sled. I don’t have much in the ways of a work surface that can accommodate a piece this size so I fashioned up a few sawhorses, a bed to hold the slab, and then the router sled itself. The whole thing took me an afternoon and is made of MDF. Because the slab varies in height so much I wanted a easy way to adjust the sled potion without having to move the wal...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #5: Pennysaver Acquisition: Delta Belt/Disc Sander & Scroll Saw

10-02-2014 10:38 PM by technoslick | 2 comments »

This past week I picked up a couple of older power tools that look to have great promise. The first is a Delta Model 31-460 Type 2 Belt/ Disc Sander. The other a Delta Model 40-530 Scroll Saw. I spend about an hour cleaning up and adjusting the sander. It runs well, but as you can see from the photos it needs some cleaning up in areas where surface rust has formed. The miter and ledge are in fine working over. The sanding belt needs to be replaced. From the v-shaped groove in the stop, I w...

Just curious

Hello everyone. So this is unusual for me to post two blog entries in one day but I could not help but ask this simple question. What is the most valuable tool that you have?

As I sit here taking the time to type a few words my dishes sitting waiting for me to start the morning routine. Routine house duties are usually completed long before now but distractions have led me astray and I have followed. My little lanyard project sits here by my computer, a reminder of my first attempt at wood carving. As I sat looking at it this morning I mulled over the suggestion to put the rope markings in it and Rick’s input this morning seconded this feedback. So that w...

Teddy Bear Bank

03-04-2007 06:18 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

I made a Teddy Bear like this for a Wood Magazine Toy Contest, a few years back. I made some more for my Grandkids. The one I made for the contest was Black Walnut. The dimensions of my bear is 3 1/2” X 4” X 6 1/4”. I hollowed out the inside on the lathe, before carving, but it could be done with a Forstner bit. I purchased a musical coin slot from Cherry Tree that plays Teddy Bear Picnic when you drop a coin in. The one pictured doesn’t have the coin slot. These a...

My Thorsen Table Project #1: Thorsen Table(s) - slow but steady...

05-09-2007 05:44 PM by schroeder | 15 comments »

I’m not sure I will be able to finish by the May 31 deadline – but I’m plugging along. I wanted to combine the project with gifts for two different weddings this summer. I opted to make them from Black Walnut, with a “Rodel” kind of look. I think Walnut is regal on it’s own, so I tried several methods to add the detail shown in the original design and ended up going with inlay of the same wood. I think it adds a complementary, but still subtle detail. I book matc...

Pandora Project #1: Pandora Internet Radio Poster Contest – not wood affiliated

08-18-2007 09:20 PM by Douglas Bordner | 10 comments »

My wife brought to my attention a poster project to promote Pandora radio’s affiliation with Global Giving, a project which targets children to provide music education. I entered this poster, as a homage to the music venue posters of the 60’s. I’d appreciate your vote, if you’re so inclined. The winner gets the exposure and $500 in money to spend at an indie music store. Woo Hoo! You can vote daily until the contest closes on August 24th, so as they used to say in C...

"Live in the woods....Wood Art" --by RusticWoodArt

10-20-2007 04:06 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Live in the woods….Wood Art Well here we go….while out last Saturday working in the woods, I happened to be down in a place that does not get into my normal forest travels. I was down in this area last fall cutting trees for this winter’s burning and happened to be down here not long ago looking at some trees that had recently fallen, due to storm winds. Last Saturday was spent cleaning those trees up and while on a break that morning, I decided to waunder around. Foun...
