New series box elder lidded bowl

03-26-2013 11:07 PM by RussellAP | 1 comment »

This is curly box elder. The top is anyway, the bottom is plain box elder which is plain maple if you ask me. It’s beautiful. I took it out of the kiln to return it an add that blue wire filament. Cant wait till this is finished in the dryer. The next one behind this is awesome too. Can’t wait.

Building the Shop #30: SawStop - Why'd I wait so long!!!!

04-12-2013 04:44 AM by Lance | 11 comments »

Over the last couple month’s I’ve been planning and preparing for the build of my bedroom set and living room side tables. The first thing I new I needed/wanted to help me with these upcoming projects was the Festool Domino. Once that came in from Amazon and I got a chance to play with it I knew I had drank the “Green” Cool-Aid!!! lol, I started thinking,.....I going with Festool, time to start upgrading tools. I really wanted the Kapex down the road, so I put my 10...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1033: One Task Done (Sort of!) On to the Next!

05-14-2013 11:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Well I finally finished what I had been working on for the past several days. At least “Phase 1” of the design – creating the first prototypes. I now feel pretty good about things and feel like I am able to move forward with other things. Designing painting patterns is a great deal different than designing woodworking patterns. When working on scrolling patterns, the bulk of the time is spent in the drawing. Once the computer work is done there are usually only some m...

What I found after making some toys

05-31-2013 09:37 PM by Karson | 20 comments »

I came back from Toy Making for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers and I sat down at my computer and I looked up at my monitor and this is what I saw. She disappeared from her cage about 3 weeks ago and has had the run of the house since then. I guess she wanted o find a nice warm spot. How she got up from the floor onto my computer desk was also a challenge. She didn’t want to go back into her cage.

Workbench Build #27: Top Trimming and Prepping for the Deadman..

07-11-2013 05:08 AM by Airframer | 6 comments »

First things first I trimmed the tenons that I left long flush with the top. My HF flush cut saw took care of that pretty quickly. Then I wanted to square up one end of the bench. Eventually I will cut a tenon in here for the end cap. The other end is waiting on the end caps and wagon vise hardware to determine where it will be cut. Then I wanted to carve out the deadman groove before I forgot and ended up trying to cut it out upside down and backwards lol. I al...

Unisaw Rehab #2: Cleaning the Wings

07-28-2013 01:05 AM by Don Broussard | 1 comment »

I made a bit of progress today. I removed both of the cast iron wings and spent a little quality time with one of them. After scraping the bulk of the nastiness with a metal scraper, I used 400 grit sandpaper with mineral spirits to clean the gunk and rust off the top and sides. I consider this a preliminary cleaning, since I’d like to get a shinier finish on the top and wings. I did check the main top and the two wings for flatness, and they are pretty flat considering that t...

My First Workbench #34: Slice and Dice the new Leg Vise Chop

08-27-2013 10:08 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Finally got a chance to sweat in the shop….I mean work in the shop today. Wisconsin may not be as hot as Texas (ever) but we sure get some humid days and being inside the garage, even with a box fan going full blast is good recipe for weight loss! Today’s first order of business was to start crafting a carving mallet so I could do the details on the leg chop. I don’t have one and quite frankly, I just think they’re cool. But…I’m going to take a non-tr...
