My lathe journeys. #18: ... More pecan. A bowl this time.

02-16-2015 09:03 PM by JoeinGa | 5 comments »

Glued 2 small slabs of pecan together, one piece has a pretty nasty crack in it. I’m gonna try using a mix of superglue and sawdust to fix this one....Once I had the basic shape coming along, I tried mixing superglue and sawdust together BEFORE putting it in the crack. BZZZZZZZ!! Wrong answer. It sets up too fast to be able to work with it. Figured out the trick is to put DRY sawdust in the crack , then drizzle the glue into it, and repeat this process several times to build it up. (A...

Poll for 8/7/08 I know we are waiting for 8/08/08 but, that's tomorrow.

Some one suggest that we have a polll on if you were stranded in a desert what tool would you like to have. Now I think thats foolish. Theres no wood there so I’d want the lightest tool that I could carry. So the poll is if you were on a beach with ample supply of driftwood of various shapes floating by or stuck in the sand, What tool would you like to have. I’m assuming that you have a long extension cord available available for your use (With power flowing out the end) ...

Marketing your wodworking

03-01-2011 01:49 AM by ScottMorrison | 1 comment »

Hi everyone. For the past year or so, I have been receiving emails from my woodworking friends asking when I would be finished with the book I was writing on marketing for woodworkers. Okay, so it took WAY longer than I thought, but I finally have my eBook (PDF) ready and available. It was quite a project. You can read about it by going to my website. I can’t thank everyone enough for your seemingly infinite patience, nor apologize enough for spending too much time fly fishin...

Novice Rambling Quickie #1: Handplaning boards, Knot Repair & workbench stability

05-06-2010 06:30 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 0 comments »

Yesterday, I took my lunch break and scooted off to the garage for a little therapy away from spreadsheets and financial forecasts. There’s a cherry board that I did a little knot repair to for practise. The board has some dry rot along one edge and I figured if I could fill the knot as per the technique in TWW episode 113, I could cut away the rot and salvage at least part of the board … —Editors Note—I’m actually starting up my own blog page similar to Ec...

Shop Remodel #39: What's Behind Door #1

01-27-2016 02:14 AM by bearkatwood | 15 comments »

I managed to get the right door of my tool cabinet fitted with its’ selection of tools. I decided to make the right side the cutting and shaping side. The saw till occupies that area so it seems appropriate. I started with holders for my most used dovetail and carcass saw. One has a carved handle and one does not so I built the holders respectively. I used leaves to hold the saws in place once in. Next I moved on the Japanese saws, which to be honest plagued me and they ar...

This project is coming along! In this video, I start making the cabinet from hard maple from the base up. All the joinery for the cabinet is held together with dominos. I then route the back of the cabinet to accept the solid maple panel back. You can see the video here:

Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate‚Äôs, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

Trestle Table #13: Cutting Tenons with Spacer Blocks

09-22-2016 07:22 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I have not received a reply from my three questions sent to Saw Stop’s support. I have concluded that they really do not have a setup where I can use multiple blades as in the twin blade joinery article I was using on my other table saw. Based on this assumptions that Saw Stop can and only will have running solutions that pass their computer checks with their two braking systems, I have moved forward with a spacer block solution for cutting tenons on my Saw Stop table saw. I repl...
