Extremely Average #10: Horrible Dovetail Blunder

01-12-2010 04:17 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

The population of Martelle Iowa is in the neighborhood of 350, so one could use the phrase thriving metropolis comfortably. We do not have door to door USPS delivery, which is a little bit of a bummer, but it does have a tremendous upside. The excitement I get when I hop in the care and drive all the way across town to check my post office box. It is almost like Festivus all year round, without the pole or ‘airing of grievances’. Actually I don’t care for mail, but last Thursday I mad...

Evolution of a Shop #4: Miter saw/drill press bench almost complete

02-02-2010 05:16 PM by Cory | 5 comments »

I made some progress last night….I finished installing the cabinets that are the base for my CMS and my drill press. I also finished installing the countertop, which is a solid core door with a 1/4” hardboard top for a total thickness of 2”. The edges are wrapped in cherry. I thought about leaving out the hardboard, but I want to make sure that I can easily replace the top when it’s damaged or worn. On that same train of thought, I screwed on the edge banding as op...

Hi everyone, I’ve been viewing many of the projects here and am litterally awe-stricken at the quality of the workmanship here. I hope to make some contributions in the future of my own that will stand up! A little about me … Not having the tools nor the space in a rental or a condo, I had focused on other things such as cycleing and computer repair. Now, however, I have a modest home to which I am the proud owner of with my wife of 3 years and a baby on the way. What a time...

Thinking about the nothing new but the glue challenge, and recycling...

04-06-2010 08:04 PM by dbhost | 15 comments »

Martin posted up an interesting challenge today in his blog. The Nothing New But The Glue Challenge. And while I do plan on putting out a project from this challenge, well it got me to thinking. And I am not sure about other woodworkers, but I learned from my Dad, my Grandfather, my uncles etc… that what is being proposed here is a good thing. Now the whole environmental impact thing aside, it just sort of makes sense to utilize everything you’ve got to the best of your abilit...

updated 10:03 a.m. PT, Tues., April 20, 2010DENVER – A man is missing his new iPad and part of his pinky finger after a robbery at a Denver shopping mall.

He says the bag wouldn’t come off and the thief yanked it so hard that it stripped part of Jordan’s ...

This week in urban logging #14: Plenty of urban logging, just not much blogging

05-04-2010 04:11 PM by Daren Nelson | 17 comments »

So I decided to fix that with a few pictures of what I have been up to. Last weeks load. The pines I am cutting for the guy who dropped off the hardwood in exchange. I saw his logs into framing for his deer cabin and I keep the walnut (many)-catalpa-birch-elm…for myself. One of the catalpa is, well, LARGE. 50” x 8’ I picked the “ugliest” catalpa out first. I love ugly logs. I sawed out some live edge slabs for benches. 2” thick ~24” wide and ...

The Wine Rack #7: Going around in semicircles

05-17-2010 04:51 PM by Todd Clare | 6 comments »

Made some more progress on the wine rack this weekend. My goal was to complete the small racks that hold the necks of the bottles. Each required 5 semicircular holes at 1 1/2” diameter each. I was smart enough to realize that the centers of the large rack holes would be the same as the small ones, so I lined them all up against a board clamped to my bench (to keep them aligned) and marked the center lines. Lesson learned: I really need a drill press table. Up to now I’v...

New Workshop #1: Moving Everything

07-14-2010 02:18 AM by GA_woodworker | 3 comments »

Well, I have been out of the loop for awhile. Once summer ended, my wife and I decided it was finally time to move. We were in a great situation in that we have been renting for a number of years, and with the current real estate market we got a great 5 bedroom, 3 bath house with a full basement on a short sale. So, for those who have looked at my profile and my shop, to say it was a little crowded was an understatement. The shop was ok, until my grandfather passed away. He had a s...
