Workbench #1: Initial lumber and milling

03-27-2008 02:26 AM by VTWoody | 8 comments »

Since I caught the sawdust bug, I have read many a book and blog, watched many a video and bought many a tool. I have even built some of my tools, and while I am a pretty frugal person, I like to only buy things once and do not like moving up the levels of quality for any given tool. Sometimes this is not possible, and sometimes buying something is either not the most effective, cheapest, or best way to broaden my woodworking skills. While I love working out in my shop, the workbench that ...

2010 Contest?

07-13-2010 11:53 PM by falegniam | 6 comments »

Hi all,I don’t know if everyone pays attention to the annual contest on LJ’s, but this one I don’t understand. I just can’t figure out what this contest wants us to do. I even asked a couple of friends of mine, thinking that it was me not knowing what this has to do with. They did not know either. How are we suppose to show fluidity or movement in wood? If that is what this is saying. Can someone please explain what they are asking us for in this contest? Below is ...

A journey into the workshop. #29: Making progress on the extension wing.

12-18-2009 06:45 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Up until now the extension wing to the BT3100 has been a simple two layer 3/4” pine ply lamination. Simply a nice, flat table top. That is all about to change… LOML gave me an early Christmas present of a Bench Dog Pro Plate and Rockler insert template, and I have some Rockler miter track just laying around, so it was time to measure up where I wanted everything, and write is down. 5.25” in from each side, 7” in from the end. Miter slot in 5.5” from the end. ...

Providing "Nutrition" for Woodworkers

03-11-2009 07:06 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

I received an email letting me know that my video was used as a reference on I loved the context in which it was used. I enjoyed the thought that my video is “nutritious.” It was referenced in a business forum as an example for using video to train employees. I felt a bit honored that it was chosen. You can check out the entry here: Peace, Love, and Woodworking

Kickstarter or DIY? Updated

08-23-2015 02:07 AM by JayT | 10 comments »

Was reading one of my favorite tool blogs last week and was intrigued by a post and the challenge it contained.

In the article, he also threw out a challenge: Weekend Challenge: Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to design or make a desktop cable and cord stop or tamer of your own. Ch...
