Southwest Cocktail table #3: My vision has returned.

06-21-2013 03:53 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

The Glue up wasn’t going perfect because I didn’t use a flat surface to work from. That is now remedied. I was real close to starting over when things started working out. Here’s where I’m at as of 30 minutes ago. Not bad. I got it straightened while I was doing the final glue up. I did some sanding with 40 then 80 grit to level off the worst of my mistakes on the top. I then used the sanding dust and some Tightbond III to make my filler and started taking care ...

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #3: Finally Cutting Wood

07-27-2013 09:46 PM by scarpenter002 | 1 comment »

Well, finally time to advance this blog. It has been more than 4 years ago when I created the last entry on this blog. I was out of the country on business for more than 3 years, causing my shop to be mothballed. Most recently work has been eating into my weekend time. Today I finally started cutting wood on my Miter Bench. After a full morning with my tracksaw and table saw, I had a nice stack of wood, all the 3/4 plywood pieces are ready to go: I spent early afternoon ...

Old Hand Drill refurbish completed (I think...)

08-13-2013 01:13 PM by jasondain | 10 comments »

This summer while on vacation in NH, we made a stop in Maine to hit some woodworking stops. First off we hit Christian Becksvoorts shop in New Gloucester then we went to Lie Nielsen tools and finally stopped at Liberty tool in Liberty ME. I had heard about this place in magazines and online and those didn’t even come close to preparing me for the number and variety of tools they had there. If you are in the area, I highly recommend stopping in. I know I will be making another trip t...

Cabinet of curiosities #3: Carcase Assembly

09-15-2013 01:07 AM by Porcupine | 0 comments »

We began building the cabinet by constructing a carcase from half inch birch plywood. Daddy ripped the plywood to width on the table saw, then to length with his festool track saw. We had to double the plywood to meet the one inch thickness required. We glued it and held it in place with clamps, before securing it with a nail gun. We thought it would be better to paint the interior before putting the cherry frame on, so the paint would not get on the cherry frame. Here is a picture...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1143: Maintenance

10-03-2013 10:03 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With autumn upon us and winter quickly approaching, like it or not there are things we need to do to get ready for the upcoming season. I find this time of year a good time to get everything checked and make sure all is well before the long cold winter. Since I am planning to drive to Chicago in a couple of weeks, I took my car in for some routine maintenance. The ‘ole girl is nearly ten now, and like all of us who age, some things need to be replaced and others just kind of re-vamp...

As The Lathe Turns #55: Burls

10-29-2013 03:00 AM by William | 17 comments »

If you have been reading my blog, you probably already know that I have a major liking for burls, and I got the chance for this post to work with some new ones. First though, I’ll get a couple of problems I’ve been dealing with out of the way.When turning bowls, I’ve been having a hard time with sanding, especially on the end grain. I’ve read and watched videos online about power sanding and wanted to give it a try. I’ve had in my mind several different ways to m...

Need some input "chaisaw milling fantasy or reality?"

11-17-2013 04:23 PM by DocSavage45 | 22 comments »

I’ve had a vision of my self milling the free logs that are constantly being dumped at our compost site in our town. I have read about it, thought about it, and investigated the Husqvarna and Sthil saws at my local Farm & Fleet for maneuverability. But that is the chain saw only. I’ve been reading blogs here, and checking out You Tube. Here are some facts to consider: In my younger days I could carry a 4×8 panel of sheet rock by lifting it. 30 years later I am usi...

Here was a recent project that I completed. It’s a weather station. The components include a barometer, hygrometer, and thermometer. It makes a great gift, and can be done in just a few hours. As always you can check out my website at: to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.

Kitchen cabinetry #4: Installing upper cabinetry

01-27-2014 05:55 AM by Jake | 6 comments »

Nothing much to say, finally managed to get the upper cabinetry up, from scratch to end product took me 1 week. Details cut: Painting and lacquering the parts: Drilling the pin holes for shelves: Cabinetry glued and screwed together (upside down): Since I did not know what was behind the sheetrock I was a bit worried because I did not know if I can put them up on the walls or not. So I had to check.. Good news was, I had a 1/2” piece of particle board put behind there ...
