Noah's Ark #2: Final cuts, sanding, sanding, and more sanding

688 days ago by DigBaddy | 0 comments »

After a few days on and off of working on this project (among others, including another snake puzzle and a cat puzzle). I finally have the ark fully assembled and all the animals sanded. I didn’t take any more in progress pictures but I did snap some of the completed ark (minus a finish). I spent about 7 hours hand sanding the animals from 80 grit to 330 grit (I think or it is 320). I put them in a ziploc bag so they don’t get full of dust. During this time I finished buil...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #830: On Learning New Things

670 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It seems that no matter how old I get, I never get tired of exploring new things and learning. While I do consider myself somewhat nostalgic, I also love technology and learning things on the computer. This is particularly true when it comes to learning computer graphic programs, as working with them is just another form of art as far as I am concerned. Seeing what these programs can accomplish is no less than astounding as far as I am concerned, and I truly appreciate the power and depth ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #845: Appreciation

653 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a beautiful day it is today. The sun just came up and the sky is blue and the clouds are pinkish-orange on the bottom. In our area, the trees are really beginning to show their color, and it is one of the prettiest times of the year. We had a week of wind and rain off and on. While driving by the ocean yesterday it was churning up like I had not seen it before. I suppose that is a sure indication that autumn is here. This week went by quickly – more so than usual. I am sure t...

Workshop Development #60: Need to work on the lumber wagon... And planned upgrades to both the shop, and wagon.

635 days ago by dbhost | 1 comment »

I need to get sheet rock to finish my current shop disaster project. One very, very big problem… The lumber wagon is busted. I was working on mounting up a hidden winch, and trying to adjust the factory transmission cooler lines just a smidgeon to the side when something went POP! Sure enough, I actually cracked the trans cooler itself… A quick call to Tasca Ford Parts and a new cooler, the upgrade model from the Towing package got sent along… Now I need to cr...

Goodell Pratt 125 Bench Lathe #1: The Beginning and history.

568 days ago by Rick M. | 2 comments »

A lathe has been in the back of my mind for some years and in the last year my love of vintage tools and machinery has really taken off so when I saw this 80+ year old Goodell Pratt bench lathe I had to have it. Luckily I got it for only a few bucks more than it cost new but unfortunately most of the original accessories are missing as is the original banjo and tool rest but then if it had those things it would have been 4-5X the price. The 125 was GP’s midi size lathe and was meant ...

I miss my shop in the winter. #1: Can't wait till spring in Wisconsin :-)

555 days ago by gforcegarcia | 1 comment »

It’s the middle of January , and I am itching to get out in the shop. Right now it is all packed up for the winter so we can park inside. I just added a bunch of new T8 lights to the shop. 5 new fixtures in all. I also recieved my brand new Veritas Router Plane yesterday. I am very excited to try it out. I guess I will spend the cold months sharpening my tools, and designing projects so I can hit the ground running as soon as the temps are over 40 all day long. I have a bunch of projec...

What's a woodworker to do?

542 days ago by Natalie | 16 comments »

So last weekend did not work out the way I had planned. I only had about an hour on Friday to get into the shop, but I finished putting together my new Sawstop and actually turned in on. Nice and quiet! I still haven’t run a board through it, but it sounded nice. I was really looking forward to making some serious dust! But I had promised a sleep-over for the grandkids so the shop would have to wait till Saturday. As Friday progressed, I became increasingly convinced I was coming d...
