Trestle Table #29: Through Tenon Mortises Cleared for Wedges

11-01-2016 01:24 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I spent a lot of time today working with my hand chisels to clean the drilled holes I made yesterday. These are the through mortises for the wedges that will hold the legs together. They give the trestle table its strength. I did take my time to clean these mortises so they would let the wedges through but would not have a sloppy fit. I even used my magnifying glass to see the mortises and the use of my hand chisels clearly. I was glad I had these Rockler purchased lighted magnifyi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #724: This and That

06-06-2012 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I was rather busy yesterday. And I accomplished quite a bit. I know I say that nearly every day but somehow yesterday it seems like I accomplished more than I usually do. I can’t really tell if it is only that way in my mind or if it is in reality the case. Sometimes it is difficult to measure these things accurately. I soemtimes watch myself evolving in this business as if I am looking in from the side lines or watching a movie. Writing here each morning forces me to think abou...

1500EX Legacy Ornamental Mill forsale

11-05-2016 08:30 PM by Don Butler | 7 comments »

I love this mill. It’s enabled me to do things I had only wished for.A couple of years ago I thought I should sell it because I hadn’t been using it much and I felt a little guilty for not using it and I thought it should be making another woodworker happy. But my family talked me out of it.Fast forward to 2016. I have had a serious turn in my health and now it’s obvious I SHOULD sell it. So, here’s the rundown. The 1500EX is a big tool. Over 9 feet long. It turns a...

On Woodworking... #1: So many ideas

06-21-2012 03:59 PM by Brohymn62 | 13 comments »

My daughter was born on May 29th, 2012… my shop finally became fully equipt (for the most part) about 2 months before that…. I reached the end of a long renovation project (bathroom and nursery) about 2 days before she was born… so for the past several weeks I’ve been loosing sleep and changing diapers but still very little shop time. I suppose as she grows I will be able to sneak away and build a thing or two but for now… I’m enjoying this time with my bab...

I called them and they said I was putting it in wrong and said do it this way. still would not give me discount. Finally they said we will give it to you like they where being nice. I got 2 emails in the last 2 days withe the coupon in them. One was sent 59 minutes before I placed order.. they then are making a big deal like they are being nice but it is the...

Bathroom Vanity #1: Plan and Started Building

07-07-2012 04:41 AM by Drifter | 2 comments »

Earlier this year we decided to remodel one of the bathrooms – meaning my lovely wife started demolishing the tile in the tub and it was my job to get it done. That seems to be the way our bigger projects start – she gets the ball rolling for me. Now that the tub is replaced with a 22” soaker and the tile has been sealed and the caulking is in place it is time to start on the rest of it. Because we haven’t decided if we are going to redo the floor I have started o...

Blog Introduction

11-14-2016 04:43 PM by Big Foot Bows | 1 comment »

My name is Kirk Lavender. I live in a little hamlet called “Mulino” that is located about 30 miles south of Portland Oregon. I’ve lived here for 26 years and built my own wood shop in the summer of 96’ on our little 2 acre ranch. The original farm house was built in 1886 and was on the old stage coach line from Oregon city south to Molalla. Its a very peaceful setting out here surrounded by larger 20-40 acre farms that are mostly used for pasture and hay fields. i a...

Adventures in Lutherie #4: Miter box for fretting

11-18-2016 08:27 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Above] Recently I had to cut fret slots on a fingerboard for a mountain dulcimer. I decided to build a miter box specifically for this. A standard miter box is too wide for this and the slot is a bit sloppy for my dovetail saw. I grabbed some scrap plywood which happened to have a decorative edge on it and screwed the two sides onto a bottom piece. This assembly was then screwed onto a wider base piece to allow me to clamp it in place. The whole thing has some weight to it as well, ...

Deck Table

08-04-2012 10:24 PM by RussellAP | 1 comment »

I was commissioned by a couple to build a deck table to match their benches. This took about 5 hours to make. I still need to sand the top and I’ll be done. What do you think. did I get a good match? This is the bench on the deck. The table I built. Here is the underside for you nerds out there. I used brads to hold the center brace to the table top, but that’s just to keep it level over time. The top doesn’t even need to be attached. It should stay...
