My Wife

01-07-2010 12:37 AM by randyb | 28 comments »

I have to say I am very lucky to have a wife that supports me in all of my hobbies. We all know woodworking takes a lot of room, money and time. My shop is our garage, we have never parked a car in it as long as we have owned our house, she has never complained. My wife has bought me many really great tools and always comes out to my shop a looks at my simplest acomplishments. I know many of you feel the same way, so heres to our wives!

Even a beam of light, given enough time, will curve. It has to. So, it was with much interest that I did some boning up on the thing all you purveyors of Rolling Pins are familiar with. I tuned in to The Naked Turner, Erik Anderson, to see how he puts a Celtic Knot, or something like it, in a lidded jar. Minor modifications in the method have me convinced that I, too, can make straight lines curve.Whereas Erik began with a glued-up stack of contrasting woods, I had one small leftover piece of...

Screeching Mortiser

03-20-2010 03:45 AM by Chelios | 5 comments »

I have just received my new Powermatic benchtop mortiser. It looks awesome in my shop. I set it up and tested some cuts. Its pretty cool. I got the chisel/auger from woodcraft for $17. This particular piece is not great quality. I can’t remember the brand but it is made in China and it howls….seriously, consider this a review for the woodcraft hollow chisels….they are less than expected quality. I have used other mortisers and they are a bit loud at times but this one...

Well here is some progress I made today .Felt good this morning and took the clamps of the arches ,turned out good .My wife came out to help to set up the table and we decided what to do next with the design as it is being done step by step without any drawings .The cross braces that stabilise the table side to side will also support the shelf but it took some head scratching as how to make everything join together with the kerf bent let legs and here is the solution I came up with .Here are ...

Thorsen Table contest #6: one more layer of green

05-22-2007 03:39 AM by scottb | 18 comments »

Most of the old door has been milled down in size or thickness in preparations for this table. This has made quick work of paint removal – no tedious sanding, scraping or stripping. One of the door panels will be the lower shelf, but doesn’t require any milling to bring this down to the proper thickness. So, in keeping with the green theme of the Greene and Greene inspired table I pulled out some “Ready Strip” and slathered on an (incidentally green) layer of “...

Father - Daughter Project #12: Dry fit frame and final size panels

08-21-2013 10:52 PM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

After sanding the panels we ripped and cross cut them to final size… I was a little nervous doing such a short and wide rip, but it went smoothly…. Since the miter slots on my new-to-me refurbished Jet cabinet saw don’t match my old Craftsman contractors saw, I need to make a new cross cut sled. Until then, I’ll have to use my Incra miter gage with a fence…. Next up was routing the lip with a rabbit bit. This was a bit of a challenge, as the pa...

Tools #2: Check your motor brushes on your power tools.

09-08-2013 01:59 AM by CMHN | 7 comments »

I was out in my workshop today making some sawdust. I am trying to get some projects completed for a show I am going to next weekend. I was ripping some boards on my table saw and about 30 minutes into it I started to smell smoke. I turned the saw off and found the sawdust that was under my table saw on fire. I was able to quickly tamp it out but was wondering what caused it. I knew I didn’t hit any nail’s even though it wouldn’t have surprised me since I was cutt...
