Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 19 Touch-up Fills, And Stuff

01-09-2016 11:17 PM by farmerdude | 4 comments »

Got back into the shop today and gained a little ground. So I started the day off with another one of the many foolish things I do. If you clean your wood stove, perhaps you should be sure there is no soot on your sleeve before you lean on the canoe. Well, isn’t that special.If I wipe it with a rag it will smear. Hmmmm, I started by grabbing the air hose and blowing off what I could. Then I carefully made a few passes with a piece of 80 grit. As I sanded with one hand I was blowi...

Next on the list #2: Next project can wait (a little)

11-08-2012 03:32 PM by Sandra | 7 comments »

Always one to jump from one project to the next, I decided to chill a little bit this time and catch my breath. I’m still trying to learn that life isn’t a sprint. I’m now working a few hours in a day at my real job, so I have to give myself time to readjust. I spent a few hours yesterday tidying up my ‘shop’ – cleaned my TS blade, put in a ZCI, changed the blade on my SCMS and basically puttered around contentedly. I tried to make some space for my s...

Kitchen Cabinets #5: 352 holes

11-24-2008 07:11 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

I was telling people that it was over 400 holes, but though the drawers are about 27×22, the actual grid for the pot separators in the bottoms of these drawers is only 16×22. Still, the enormity of just how many holes I’d set myself up to drill only sunk in after the first hundred. I’d clamped two of these together with a sheet of pegboard on top for stability, and used 1½” of maple block drilled out on the drill press to keep my bit vertical. I put it on a sh...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #4: It has been a long time.....climate inside the can

10-29-2009 07:38 PM by cmckerliesr | 6 comments »

Well it has been way to long since I last wrote or posted anything on my blog and I apologize for that. The main reason for the long period between blog posts is that as some of you know, I was out of work for over a year. I had to make the tough decision to severely limit my woodworking since I could not afford the power bill. In case you did not know, woodworking is not my occupation. Writing crap that no one reads is. Yes, the next time you actually take the time to read the directions tha...

I will be posting another video of the first start up and cut. If anyone has any questions about the assembly, please feel free to ask!Thanks for watching:)

Dovetail Box #14: "T Keys"

04-28-2008 05:02 PM by Eric | 5 comments »

When I asked for feedback on how to glue up the frame pieces for the lid to the box I’m working on, Luis had suggested that I not glue the miters, but rather chop little mortises in the miters and glue in some floating tenons. The only problem is that with the size of my miters, they would have to be very tiny mortises, and I just didn’t have it in me to do it. So here’s what I came up with: “T Keys”. I decided to run grooves down the length of the mortise, creat...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #2: Roughed In

05-14-2014 12:37 AM by Dave G | 0 comments »

This is a quick entry to record the results of roughing in the maple chair. It’s rarely a good idea to rush these entries and I expect there to be some trouble arising in the form of tough questions. The roughing went a lot better than I expected, as far as getting a pleasing shape. By going slowly, mostly with the Festool grinder and a bit with the Nicholson rasps, the chair shapes up really well. The screw holes still need plugging. I bought a new 7/16 plug cutter just for...

My Workbench #4: Phase 1 Nearly Complete

08-26-2009 03:07 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Got a LOT done last night, including getting everything glued and trimmed up. Here’s a (slightly blurry) picture of the bench as it is now: The base is bolted together, but the top is not attached yet. Still, this sucker is heavy and sturdy! I don’t even have the bolts through the base tightened all that much, and it does not rock at all. As soon as I bolt the top to it, I expect it to survive a tactical nuke :D I need to glue some 1×4’s onto the bottom of...
