Progress is made on my router table

12-02-2009 12:47 AM by ryno101 | 7 comments »

I haven’t posted anything about this yet, I expect to have a finished project to post shortly… I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made on this. This is my first cabinet, my first doors, my first drawers, etc. Cabinet is 3/4” MDF, and has been done for months now. I finished the doors recently, but as woodworking for me is all about budgeting, haven’t pulled the trigger on the Forstner bit I needed to mount the hinges. Hit Rockler the other da...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #2: Wheels for everything

01-25-2014 08:28 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Well, I haven’t gotten much done on the shop remodel since i first posted. I can heat the shop but the temperature has been so very cold that hunkering down with netflix is what ends up happening lately. I did do some sheetrock taping after I got the bench out and I do have plywood and mdf waiting on saw horses to be cut up for the new assembly table and table saw base. But, I did get my order of swivel 3” wheels with brakes from harbor freight. After looking at Dusty's review ...

READY TO START MY WORSE CHALLENGE #1: DRAGONFLY

09-14-2013 05:23 PM by Jim Earl | 7 comments »

Ok Here goes. I have put this off for about two weeks. It has taken me about 9 hours to get it to this point. People thinks that the woodburning they done in high schools is same as what I do. After selecting the picture there is hours pending trying to get the picture just right to transfer everything over to the piece of wood. after you put it on the wood I spend a lot of time going over and over to get the right depth. so with out further ado I give you the DAGON FLY. (OK I AM GOING...

Leather disc for sharpening

02-12-2016 07:45 PM by Sergeich | 6 comments »

I love to sharpen my tools with Japanese water stones. It is like meditation. First you choose appropriate stones for a particular blade. Then soak these stones in water for a while. Then level surfaces of the stones. Then pick up one stone and start to sharpen. Thoroughly, thoughtfuly, unhurriedly. Then you take second stone, then third, then fourth… Using nagura… Listening to shamisen… This way inevitably leads to full and ultimate enlightenment. But, to be honest, sometimes I just want to ...

My second youtube video

05-08-2015 12:50 AM by Michaelgurrado | 3 comments »

I recently uploaded a new video to my youtube channel, I will post the link up at the bottom. I have been wanting to post up more videos of project builds and some other shop related things so a while back i posted up one video of me carving a wood spirit using a Dremel tool, this was my first video. a few days ago i posted up my second video of simple wood cutouts. It was easy to shoot and a fast project and using very limited tools. I am hoping to shoot more videos as the time goes on but ...

Large picture frame commission.

02-15-2008 10:41 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

In this blog I thought you lumberjocks would be interested in seeing the whole process that I go thru when doing this picture frame commission. This is the picture that the owner wanted a carved frame for. As you can see by the photo the picture is out of the frame and I was able to take the frame with me so I could make the new frame the proper size for the picture. The new frame will be 3’-6” +- X 6’-6” +- so this is as large a frame I will have did to date. ...

Just for Fun... #28: Sawdust Update...

08-10-2010 01:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #53: Hitachi C10FL Acquisition - Part 2

08-20-2015 11:30 AM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

A week has gone by since my previous post. In that time I have made some progress. Several days ago I figured out a way to get it into the dungeon. A couple of days ago I added back the steel base stand, moved the retractable casters to their correct location on the legs—the previous owner really didn’t know what he was doing in assembling and running this saw—and managed to gently tip it off the hydraulic table and onto its side, then lift it onto its legs…all by myse...
