Workbench #1: Hand plane usage help

04-19-2012 11:15 PM by russde | 8 comments »

Ok, I am a beginner, a noob, an fng (for you military types). I have a basement to work in and have been purchasing tools to work with (the fun part, so far). Tonight I started on ‘my workbench’. It’s going to be cheap, it’s going to be ugly, but I need it to be functional. The top is 2×4 Doug fir from a box store. I am aiming for a 5’ x 3’ surface solely due to space constraints (living on-base, military, I’m lucky to have a basement to work ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #693: Drawing

05-06-2012 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am afraid that I don’t have much to talk about this morning. It was a quiet day yesterday. I spent most of it drawing and working on the next projects that I will be making. Keith is still sick and spent most of the day resting. That was a good thing, but I tried to be as quiet as I could so he would be able to sleep. He is not accustomed to sleeping during the day, but this cold has really hit him hard. I have kept my distance, and hope that I can fend off the germs enough so...

Misc. Shop Stuff #7: (SW) Dumb Luck

07-07-2012 04:34 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 15 comments »

Went to my Dad’s shop to see if he had casters I was looking for (no), when in a drawer caught my attention. Looked like something I scanned on ebay, so I flipped it over. Ah! Have to find a most worthy cause for the pair! Thanks for looking.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #37: Exploring Options ????

07-21-2012 01:45 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been exploring new options for my scrollsaw. New items I can make or new areas I can get involved in. Is this a bad thing or not. The thing I like the best is scrollsaw fretwork. Little tiny cuts and lots of them. I think the thing I like the best is when you are finished customers will ask, ‘how in the world did you make that”? Well after all the cutting and glueing is done it was simple, right?. Now I sure that this will remain as the majority of my work. Lately I h...

Workshop #1: Setup for the workshop at the new house

08-19-2012 04:44 PM by Jacob Deis | 0 comments »

It’s been a crazy couple of months after buying our first home but it’s been an amazing ride. Now that things have calmed down and everything is starting to find their places, its time for me to find myself getting the new shop setup. It’s a modest 2 car garage with a bonus storage closet. I do have to share the space with the lawnmower and bikes for now but future plans call for a separate storage shed. I’ve been working in SketchUp to lay everything out and this i...

Well my Friends I have been at if for some time now and felt it was time to get busy I worked on the legs first after a critical error the leg assembly had to be broken down which was a big job and then the legs were taken back one step the outer legs were re worked and the bench was put together for a test fit and to let the tops lye flat for a while to get them as flat as can be.
