Cedar wood gloat (saved from the burn pile)

11-05-2011 03:35 AM by cdbridge39 | 3 comments »

I got some free cedar wood the other day. It was in the burn pile on the bottom I tied a strap to pull it out. It was a 12 foot log about 20” across the butt. I sawed it into 4’ sections so I could haul it in my truck. I blocked some of it up for turning blanks. I guess the rest I will saw up into lumber to make stuff (lol) !!! Just think someone was going to burn it.

new members??

12-21-2011 05:35 AM by robert triplett | 7 comments »

Not sure where this goes, but I was checking on a guy who told me he had joined. a lot of the new members are just ads for promo codes and skin toner. Don’t look like real people or woodworkers. Who do I ask to check this out?

Making a Kubb set

01-15-2012 08:15 AM by andyboy | 4 comments »

This is a fairly basic video on some machining processes and hand skills. Should you choose to make your self one of these sets, I promise your kids and family/friends will love you for it. The rules are available on Wiki. Youtube gives a few very good game basics.

Workshop Tour (space efficiency)

01-28-2012 05:59 AM by john1102 | 6 comments »

I thought I would finally post some images of my workshop. It is still being modified but improving. I currently work out of a 12×24 workshop and when weather becomes adverse my tools must be mobile to allow for my wife to pull in out of the elements. Eventually I plan to have a dedicated shop some day but it will be some time from now. I am still young and other items take priority as most others know. That said I have had to work smarter and more efficient to make the most of my...

mini roubo #4: testing the switch on the planer

03-14-2012 08:12 PM by kaaahl | 8 comments »

This will be my last post today, I swear. I just figured I would document this out in case other people run into power tool failures in the future. First things first, I put the machine back together, except for the switch. I originally planned on using a voltage tester with live current, but I was nervous about that. The voltage tests that I had (read, that I stole from my dad’s tool box) looked old or cheap or both. But I found a video online to explain how to check circuits for re...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #652: The Sands of Time

03-26-2012 09:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most woodworkers that I talk to don’t like sanding. Of the many steps in the process of doing a woodworking project, I think I am pretty safe in saying that it is the least liked part. In fact, I am amazed at the number of people who spend hours on a project that simply skip over the sanding step completely. I don’t always understand why they would do that. While it may not be the most pleasant part of making a project, it is among the most important in most things that we cre...

Catch up photos

04-08-2012 12:06 AM by T. D. Reid | 5 comments »

I promised you photographs to catch you up on my current build. First one is my 8 year old son on his first camping trip with dad. We had a break in the rain so he and I wanted to get the kayak and canoe in the water and figured that we would spend the night. We froze when the tempature dipped to below 32 degrees last night and we were trying out a new two man tent. It was fun and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Top rail that sits on top of the head and foot boards.4/4 Quart...

Hello all, First of all, I am a woodworking nob. It is a hobby that I’ve found very relaxing. Over the weekend I’ve ran into a number of hand planes and could not resist.

assembling sawstop contractor saw alone

05-09-2012 08:11 PM by yrob | 4 comments »

I have a question for those of you who own a sawstop contractor saw. Is it possible to put together alone or do you need a buddy to help lift the saw on the base?I’ve heard that the saw without the cast iron wings is around 140lbs (I should be able to lift that) The whole saw around 280lbs when assembled ?
