Workshop Transformation #1: Getting Started

124 days ago by ikillbugs | 0 comments »

Finally, I am seeing a real workshop begin to come to life. I started as a 24’ x 24’ insulated building framed out for a small apartment. I don’t need an apartment, but I would like to have a workshop! So here you go! BEFORE: AFTER:

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1352: A Weekend Without Power

54 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I suppose I spoke too soon on Saturday. After all the cries of "wolf" continually from the weather channels, we had really become accustomed to not paying much heed to their dire warnings of impending doom. Since Keith and I don't even get 'regular TV' we only had heard about the storm from others. I checked the map on Friday to see Arthur's progress and it appeared to hit land and be winding down. Surely by the time it reached Nova Scotia, it would be minimal. ...

Furniture #5: Maloof Stool (the real one) makes Progress

11 days ago by robscastle | 6 comments »

Today I decided to progress the “real” Maloof stool I began in June. I started off doing the rear legs however I must have had some sort of lapse of the brain as I cut the legs out on the bandsaw first, why I did it who knows I had already made a prototype as well! So after I realised the monumental error of having no datum surfaces to work with I had to Double Side Tape them and the off cuts back together again temporarly. A vist to the sander returned a level work...

Wearing Tight Baseball Caps - or No Vanity Here!

2771 days ago by Don | 9 comments »

I decided it was time for a change of my Buddy Picture. I thought I looked pretty cool when this was taken, so decided to use this for a few days. Its only 32 years ago, so thought I’d let some of you younger ones, without much hair, and now at the same age as I was when this picture was taken, see what wearing tight baseball caps has done to your domes. My wife and I have frequently commented on how many young men seem to be losing their hair these days. So that’s our theory ...

First post

2732 days ago by Rob McCune | 7 comments »

Okay, so I am somewhat new to the hobby, though not really a newbie. I have built a china cabinet for my ex, done plenty of trim work, and had plenty of little projects, none of which were finished (as in painted or stained). I did a custom cabinet door for the stairway storage area which I will try to post some pics of. My main focus right now is getting a planer and a jointer. I have the money for a JET 6” longbed jointer with the quick set blades. There is a big sale at Ideal Sa...

Series entry #3 of Thorsen table

2701 days ago by jockmike2 | 6 comments »

Did some more rendering down of the lumber, cutting the pieces I have to size. Then made the mortising jig for my O’malley router. Talk about a chinese fire drill. No offense to any Asian cousin, I have a Korean sister in law. But it took me a couple hours to get that together, even than I’m not quit done. My back got the best of me and I had to quit. I didGet out to my wood buddys place but he was’nt home. Well I don’t know how much work my wife is going to let me get...

Major Upgrade: Wider pages, Videos, Larger Pictures

2637 days ago by Martin Sojka | 27 comments »

I’ve managed to finish some important upgrades today. Here they are in a list: wider pages – majority of the site visitors are already using 1024×768 or higher resolution so it is a good time to introduce wider pages. Content area now supports embedded images up to 640px wide – that’s the exact same width that photo sharing sites like Photobucket are recommending for the web use in their resizing options. As a result 640px wide pictures hosted on these sites ...
