Double Single Bed #2: Big Pieces Into Small Pieces

12-16-2015 04:01 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

Well, the SE Michigan weather continues to be more balmy than frozen, so work on the bed frames continues. I’m out of propane now, too. This week I received the bed bolts from Horton Brass ($4.50 each) & placed an order for the box spring fasteners / bed irons ($2.25) and bed bolt covers ($1.85) from Baltimore Hardware. I rough cut, jointed, & thickness planed the pieces for the posts, 2 x long and 2 x short for each bed, from 8/4 red oak. For the first 12 inches, rippin...

End of year #1: 2015 - What a year

12-20-2015 12:16 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

What a year… it has been an adventure of highs and lows. A high being I starting filming my projects and uploading to youtube, I use to just post to this blog. One of my lows would be the drain on my energy especially during the winter months and continuing to push through and put out a project video every week since I started. I would like to thank all for your continued support in this venture… I met my goal of getting 1000 subscribers before the of the year and now closing i...

A Grumpy Comment and then I'll Be Quiet

12-22-2015 03:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

Whenever any one of us goes to post a project we have to click on a link which reads: “Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood If it doesn’t fit the above description (like tool gloats & upgrades, wood gloats, projects in progress etc.),either blog it or post it in an appropriate forum. Otherwise it will be removed.” — In the past several months I’ve noticed that at least several ‘projects’ were not made of wood, or ...

inlaying #2: inlaying part 2

04-15-2009 05:40 PM by kosta | 0 comments » In this video I go over how to cut the recess that the inlay goes in and I rough fit it using the scroll saw as a rasp or a chisel. I will fine tune it using a rasp because it is easier to get it just right on the scroll saw.

Who are we supposed to believe???

Not long ago, I wandered into Harbor Freight. (Hello, my name is Tom, and I’m a Harbor Freight-o-holic…group response, “Hi, Tom, tell the group your story…” They had Cen-Tech combination squares with the center finder & adjustable angle thingie(not a technical term) on sale for about 6 bucks, so I bought one, even though I have 2 old Starrett combo squares in the shop. I think I was drawn in by that adjustable thing because my Starretts don’t have th...

Shop Remodel #29: Blame it on Star Wars

01-01-2016 02:27 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Hello all, I haven’t been keeping up with this blog very well this week. It is because I haven’t had a lot to report. I have been trying to finish up the carving on the till, but it has been slow going. I might have to pull out some power carving goodies to get on top of it. I was hoping to get started on the bench this week and I may well get out the maple tomorrow to see if I have enough, I’m little skeptical about it. I might have to alter the design to accommodate it. On...

Reaperwoodworks #3: Shelves removed, shelves added!

01-03-2016 03:44 PM by Reaperwoodworks | 0 comments »

In the ongoing effort to reorganize my shop, I got to rip out some shelves that were taking up too much floor space. I’ll fill the space back up with something else I’m sure, but regaining the floor space feels SO good! Now if I could just get the video editing part down. The first minute or so was supposed to play back at a faster speed :( Here's the video
