Opinions please #4: Electrical outlets

12-11-2013 02:39 PM by curliejones | 15 comments »

Ah the winter doldrums in Louisiana. Too wet to dig footings so I’m trying to nail down some electrical details. I’d treasure some advice on the following – I plan to run a couple of 220V circuits for future growth while I’m wiring the shop even though I have no tools or utilities requiring that now. The new shop will be designed such that part or all can be insulated and heated/cooled other than naturally. One bit of advice I came across was to place four-plex boxes a...

Waterstone advice needed

09-02-2013 10:06 PM by BoxBuilder | 5 comments »

I have several waterstones I use for general sharpening. I keep them in a container in water so they are ready wen I need them. I notice when I take them out to use they have a sort of slimy coating that I have to clean off before use. I thought maybe a slight amount of Clorox mixed in with the water might be the answer but don’t know if that would have any effect on the stones. Does anyone else have any experience with this problem? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #5: It was the day.

05-11-2009 05:07 PM by Junji | 7 comments »

So it was the 3rd birthday of my daughter today, actually it past a few minutes now… The bed was done a while ago, and she has been sleeping there, but I just thought it would be a good idea to take some shots on her birthday sleeping there. From woodworking There has been no problem with the bed, and the cracking just stopped after I put this bed in the bedroom. There is nothing special about this photo, but for me, this is one of the biggest reason to be here in the world.

Wall Display Case #2: Planing/Jointing

01-28-2010 07:04 AM by johnnymo | 1 comment »

Well, didn’t do much today. After unloading some wood from work, removing some nails from it, and trying to find a place for it in my shop.I did however have some time to pick out some wood, plane it, and join one side on each piece. These will be used for the face of the cabinet. Hopefully I’ll have time tomorrow to head out to the shop and set up my tablesaw for cutting the parts to size.

My Friend Named Roubo #1: Thoughts & Design

08-28-2012 02:17 PM by BareFeet | 0 comments »

I’ve begun. After months and years of trolling the internets and wondering what (and when) I am going to build, I started today. Over the last 6 years since I first owned a home, I have acquired an abundance of tools. I’ve always had more tools than the average bear, however when you buy a home that’s a ‘fixer-up-er’ there are going to be MANY times when you don’t have the right tool and your father doesn’t either. I managed to get my hands on the...

Clarification on my gallery pics

07-29-2011 12:49 PM by CharlesDearing | 1 comment »

Although each gallery shows one photo as it’s cover, there are 6 different photos per gallery. As you can see, I am a scrollsawyer NOT a photographer! ;)

Contemporary Cross project #4: Gluing completion and cutout of outside shapes

12-06-2010 05:00 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

So after the glue up dried on the larger piece, I clamped up the smaller interior piece giving attention to the fit as I did in the previous glue up of the large interior piece. Here is the piece unclamped. This shows the backside where the template was not seen. Here is the same piece flipped over with part of the template still showing. I used a scraper to remove the worst of the glue on the bottom side so it would sit flat on the bandsaw and then starting cutting out t...

Telecaster Build #1: Stock prep and roughing out the body

11-12-2013 03:39 AM by camps764 | 7 comments »

New meets old. Prior to diving into the world of woodworking, I was a pretty avid guitar player. Throughout high school and into college I played in several punk and heavy rock bands. As I got older, finished graduate school, started my career and family, I stopped playing guitar as much and started making saw dust. Over the last year I’ve started playing a little more regularly, and decided that I’d like to combine both of my hobbies. Even though I started out playing roc...
