Extremely Average #133: I will not be mocked...ok...maybe I will.

Hello all, After 3 hours of lapping on my 143 year old no 5, it is, well…still not done. It mocks me. But there are some pictures. And I have made a bit of progress on that tough old steel. Brian

Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

3D Wall Art: Minecraft Edition

08-26-2015 12:27 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I had a lot of fun making this project. It wasn’t complex or even involved any real type of joinery like usual. I did get to use my bandsaw a lot which was fun. I haven’t really used it but to make a few cuts here and there. The Ridgid bandsaw did great with cutting out the letters. Another fun part of this project was that my wife helped me paint. I enjoyed spending the time with her and just having some good conversation. Check out what the great teamwork accomplished in the video. View o...

Mesquite & Pecan Dining Table #1: Getting started

02-08-2013 03:16 PM by Dabilene | 3 comments »

I am putting together a hunting camp and the bunkhouse needs a dining table. The space will fit a 48” square table nicely (I’m a little apprehensive about trying a round table, so square it is). This is my first project that I consider “furniture”. I’ve been limited to shop fixtures, cutting boards, pens, etc. I live in Abilene, Texas, and we have a great mesquite supplier – Lankford Mesquite. I ended up with beautiful 4/4 boards for $12/board foot. ...

Things I have been doing. #1: Just things I have been doing

07-06-2011 05:12 AM by CherieLee | 5 comments »

Well, I have never done a blog before, so here I go. I just just recently learned much more about finishing techniques. So far I basically do small things such as ornaments since they are quick. The most recent I have learned is to soak my pieces in some kind of oil. All I have here right now is mineral oil, and I first used that on a cake topper I made for our son’s wedding. For the past couple of months I have been soaking everything I do and have found the pieces look much bet...

Not The Wood, But The Woodworker

I’m sure allot of you male woodworkers know this problem….cracked hands. I don’t know if anyone else has a blog on this, but if anyone has some good ideas on help for this, I’m listening…’s the problem, after years of working with toxic chemicals, like mek, silicone and denatured alcohol….common to the glass trade, my hands crack every years, especially in the winter. If I have to wear latex gloves, it just gets worse….but i can’t ...
