One Man's Furniture is Another Man's Pizza?

02-11-2011 02:13 AM by HungryTermite | 11 comments »

I work as a design engineer and every once in a while someone will build a mockup at home and bring it in to illustrate a point they are trying to make about a design. The other day someone came in with a crudely made wooden mockup made up of what looked like poplar stained to look like walnut. Knowing that people use poplar as a walnut look-a-like and thinking to myself that it seemed like a lot of trouble to go through for a mockup that didn’t even have tight fitting or square joint...

Wood Shop Projects #1: My new island-bench

10-30-2012 09:42 PM by JC Boysha | 1 comment »

Today I got started on a simple bench for my shop. I knew I wanted an island bench, and because space is a premium I thought I would keep it small, I figure I can always add on to it later if I need to. Plus, when I get a new space I can put casters on this and use it as a rolling work bench. I began construction by measuring the top of my small table saw. This would allow me to use the table as an outfeed as well if needed. (This would be my downfall as I explain later). I cut two 8-foot-...

Done with the expensive white oak log

03-30-2010 12:49 AM by sw_iowa_sawyer | 5 comments »

I was finally able to get back to the white log that has been on the saw for a while. It has been a while so I will back track a little. Here is the log it ran 32” and had to be trimmed to even start with a chain saw.So the process is simple enough find your best side and slab then rotate and slab etc until you have a four sides cant. Well this logs runs about 3500 lbs so that presents a problem.Three sides cut need to roll it.Then once you have all fours sides square start cutting you...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1068: 12 Days and Counting . . .

06-28-2013 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As it turned out, I spent the bulk of yesterday finishing up and refining the 12 Days ornament set(s). What I thought would only take an hour or two, wound up taking until nearly 10pm in the evening. I say that without dismay or disappointment. Things just take time. While the main parts of the pieces were completed, I still needed to do refinements on them as well as finish them. The edges of the ornaments weren’t painted, and while the edges of the laser cut pieces that were pro...

I wanted to let people know that after a long period off silence from my video podcast, I want to say that the shows may be coming back. Not sure yet, but we will have to see. I want to know what you would like to see from a show in the terms of projects, or use of tools/skills. Thanks. Any opinion is greatly appreciated.

Workbench #5: Planning for the Big Day

09-03-2009 07:06 PM by KellyS | 3 comments »

I have my top glued up and still in the middle of the living room floor. My wife has been pretty patient about this, but I think it is wearing thin. She keeps telling me I’m going to way up to a bunch of smaller cutting boards if I don’t move it soon. Gotta get going! I’ve got my legs sized and glued up and I’m ready to start cutting mortises. I took the day off from work so I could play a little tomorrow. Not had much time off here lately. All work makes Kelly stir...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

I went to an all-day ebusiness seminar today at Rio Grande University in southern Ohio (35 dollars).
