In talking with some of my woodworking friends on this subject, I learned that most were not comfortable with kids being in their shops because of safety concerns. Granted, there are extra precautions that must be taken when kids are present, but don’t let this keep you from introducing woodworking to your kids, grandchildren, or even the kids up the street. And if you’re a parent or grandparent who doesn’t have a lot of knowledge around woodworking, but your kids have an ...
So on the advice of FlWoodRat I contacted Ryobi support about the seized blade bolts and they were kind enough to send me a new set of blades ($74 a pair) for my troubles :)
If you don’t mind I’m going to raise Os’s passing to the top of the list as a short remembrance. He was a good man, a great LumberJock and is sorely missed.
Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #19: Plodding along on my drawer project - having issues with scaling
So I’m home from the church concert – WOW – kinds of revs you up. So decided to try to learn a little bit more on the SU front. I’m probably the slowest learner on this type of stuff – but no one can say I’m not persistent! So here I go. This is my first side – which shows the length (10.25); width (.5); and height (3.5) and I’ve made it a component. This next shot shows the second side having been copied and moved to it’s ...

From my blog: Over the years, Christopher Schwarz has built many benches – from the Roman style door-and-saw horse, to much-improved models based on old references. And he has published a book that has become a true library reference for many woodworkers: Workbenches, From Design & Theory to Construction & Use. Now to Part 1: From my notes, a mix of some comments and facts from the presentation by Christopher Schwarz. I hope the following will get your interest in watching...
I built a home about 4 years ago and went with just enough to get Certificate of Occupancy. I have started painting projects and finished all the chair rails and most of the moldings in the house except above the kitchen cabinets. I have to add light boxes and moldings to the cabinets to complete the crown around the ceilings. Just got materials here today. I will post pictures in the near future. I have to add moldings to the bottom of the upper cabinets as well.
One of the excuses I used to get started with woodworking (and spend money on tools of course) was that I wanted to build 5 footstools for our beauty salon. Our customers currently rest their feet on some rather horrible pink plastic footstools that cost 49 baht or less from the local supermarket. They look a bit out of place and the top is hard to keep clean. I can do better than that I thought! This blog will detail my adventures in trying to build these footstools. These are my first real ...
Found this old “log” of rowan in our pile of branches and leaves and stuffWe moved in about 7 years ago and apparently it was here before us, didnt personally know about it, just saw it today by coincidence when i was looking for a good place to spalt some birch -.- Its about 3½ feet long after i sawed off the rotten end Got some deep cracks, but the 2 bigger ones go straight towards each other so more material saved The rotten end of it, threw that back into the hole it ...
If you’ve been following my blog you know that we’re moving into a new (to us) house this month, and I’m planning to build a Roubo workbench to christen my new workshop space. Well I’m out of town for a few days and have a little evening free time, so I thought I’d jot down my thoughts as to what kind of Roubo I’d like to build (yes, there are many styles of Roubo!): I plan to have the legs tenoned straight through the top, including the dovetailed out...
