Diamond stones may be a woodworkers best friend

03-18-2012 11:59 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

I went back and forth…agonizing for a few weeks actually… I get these? do I not??...and on and on. Finally…after more than enough study I went for it and hit the pay button….lol. These are not cheap. These are DMT diamond stones 10×3 extra coarse, coarse, fine and extra fine. I also purchased a bench strop with green honing compound. I made a little plywood movable work station, routed out the relieved areas with my stanley 71 hand router (that was a wor...

Woodworking Journal #1: Michigan Woodworks --- My Woodworking Shop and Story

11-16-2008 04:19 PM by DonFaulk0517 | 4 comments »

Welcome to my woodworking shop and story. This is my first blog and I hope to provide an ongoing status of my workshop and woodworking endeavors in this blog. This is “my story” of a hobby I enjoyed many years ago but became detached from due to my responsibilities at my full-time “real” job. I will update this whenever I can. For me, this is my retreat… my workshop is in my garage on my three arces in the woods with a 1/4 acre pond. Wildlife heaven, with dear, turkeys, and many other anim...

I don’t know where to really start as this is really my first blog here on LJ! I have been looking as as much of your work as I can and still get some few things done around here.

After I got out of the Navy, (carpenter there too) I joined the carpenter’s union and did most...

Daily Update #74: July 21, 2010 Make-a-wish finished

07-21-2010 03:52 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I finished up the batman bed for Make-A-Wish. I started it late Monday and it needed to go out today to make the Next Monday make-over deadline. It turned out great! Now I need to get back on track with my scheduled projects. Today I’ll work on getting the Cherry pre-cut murphy bed ready to ship. This is one that the customer will build themself but I give them a little head start. I pre-cut the boards, edge the endgrain, sand them up, and drill most holes. After that I’...

Using SketchUp to design an end table

08-05-2013 05:47 PM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

In this video I use SketchUp to design an end table. I’ll fore-warn you that it’s nearly an hour long. There are probably faster ways to do this in SketchUp but this is how I did it. I hope you find it helpful.

Low budget + low skill = sharp chisels

03-28-2014 06:55 PM by Lukas | 0 comments »

There is no discussion about the fact that sharp tools are a must in woodworking but when it comes to the methods of sharpening or the quality of tools necessary, the fight is on. Be it sharpening by hand or with a sharpening station that raises the value of your house by 20%, a newcomer in tool sharpening can easily get confused. I too worried for a long time that without serious investment in both extreme high quality tools and the corresponding sharpening implements I would be doomed to us...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1028: Time to Paint!

05-07-2013 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today’s post is going to be rather short. I did accomplish a great deal yesterday and finished up my drawing for the next project. Today I am going to cut the pieces out and begin the painting process. That is always fun for me. While I love the woodworking part of my job and really enjoy the scrolling, I also love doing the painting process on things, too. I am often torn between creating painting patterns and scrolling patterns and many times I try to do both versions of the sa...

Contemporary TV Stand #3: A slight interruption, to put it mildly...

04-02-2011 08:05 PM by RDR | 5 comments »

Since my last post I have accomplished precisely zero on this project. A new project showed up that is taking up absolutely all my time. I’m pleased to introduce Norah June, born March 28 at 12:36 AM. She’s 8 lbs, 10 oz. of cute. So, there’s not a lot of woodworking going on lately. We both pretty much feel like this:
