Ronin Woodworking #7: The Sawdust Chronicles Build Challenge 2010

1414 days ago by spaids | 1 comment »

I entered a project in Ricks contest which was fun and personally challenging. I am going to take a shot at Ricks third contest ending this October. The entry deadline has not yet passed so anyone interested should check it out. I have a project idea that has been on my mind for a long time and with so little shop time I decided that this will be my 2010 build challenge entry. This is not the final sketchup that I’m going to build but it is very close. You can’t see very well in this dr...

Grandkids building

1401 days ago by canadianchips | 7 comments »

I want share the proud moment I had this weekend. Our town had its annual Fair this weekend. One of the pavilions had a kids section. The local lumber yard supplied the material, pre-drilled nail holes and let the kids build their own tool box. Our little girl is 21 months old. She was thrilled. Can’t talk yet ,but was right in there helping ME !.This event took place yesterday and I am still BEAMING.

Woodworking T.V. shows I'd like to see

1388 days ago by Stevinmarin | 9 comments »

Part 2 of my article on woodworking shows. —————————— Television money guys need to understand that woodworking is quite popular and that they could actually make money producing a woodworking show. But first, we need to scrap every preconceived notion we have about woodworking shows. Start from scratch and look at them as entertainment first, education a distant second. Read the complete article...

An introduction

1352 days ago by Dave S | 12 comments »

I came upon this site quite by accident, doing research for an upcoming wood project. I had decided, on a lark, that I would a new dining room table for our new house. (Posting to come on that.) It came out well enough—to my own surprise—that I decided to tackle a few other projects. I’m nearly done with a recycling cabinet, I made a screen door, and one of those big stand-up mirrors. Next up is a drafting desk for my wife. This site seemed an interesting way to steal (borro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #169: Back Up and Moving

1341 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Although I took it quite slow yesterday, I did accomplish a few things. I planned on taking a nap in the afternoon, but I was involved in other things and I forgot. That was a good sign. I finished working on the drawings for the gingerbread candle try. The first tray I did was all gingerbread men. But then I looked at it and thought that he looked lonely so I altered the patterns to make him a girlfriend. I decided to include both designs in the pattern as some people have daughters...

clamp gloat

I am looking for a drill press with a locking spindle feature. something not common on newer machines, but was on vintage model. since old machines are of better quality and field tested, I am on the hunt for one.Anyway, I dragged a few friends with me for the roadtrip, drove a few hours, and took a ferry to get to this remote barn. The ad had been up...

Jayne's Rowboat Rocker #2: Sizing up the Sides

1315 days ago by captkerk | 1 comment »

Today I did a bunch of sanding on the rib assemblies, back and bottom. I then did a clamp together assembly (with help from the wife) to make some layout marks to determine the size of the sides. I used some leftover Luan plywood to make a rough shape for the sides since it was already pretty warped and thus a little easier to bend. I then transferred the shape to the 1/4” oak plywood for the finished piece and fine tuned the shape. After I got one side shaped the way I ...

Palm Box (copy) #5: More on chamfers

1301 days ago by mpmitche | 0 comments »

There was very little I could find about my before mentioned lambs tongue stopped chamfer. A blog by Christopher Schwarz talked about an ogee terminated chamfer and a google books preview of Garret Hack’s Working with Handplanes showed a picture of a lamb’s tongue stopped chamfer with a discripiton that it is usually made with a chisel and hand tools. After a little practice I came up with a method and took the plunge on the box I am making. I also made a small relief und...
