Extremely Average #112: Tonight's blog and a bit more...

1582 days ago by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello All, I continued work on my 3 in 1 jig. I am working on the rip cutting for a circular saw portion. I was able to use the drilling jig thingies and they were a delight. I haven’t mentioned it before, but I have started a second blog, which has more to do with social media. The posts are designed for beginners and tonight I wrote a funny piece on StumbleUpon. So if you like my more fanciful blog pieces, you may enjoy this one as well. http://bit...

Moving #1: Here it comes (or there it goes?)

1485 days ago by Bret | 3 comments »

I’ve now officially got less than a month left here in Colorado before my family and I head back to Virginia. I wasn’t a woodworker while there, but I am now, and will be looking for good advice on preparing my tools for short-to-medium term storage (could be a month, could be a year) and getting them ready to move as well. It’s a job change that has caused this, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m going back to an old employer and am really looking forward to wo...

Wooden carpenters box

1647 days ago by kernalkorn | 2 comments »

I have been working on a wooden carpenters style box for a few weeks now. Im trying to stay as close to the metal one im replacing cause of size/weight/ bulky issues. Originaly i wanted to use box joints but was unable with the stacked dadoe set i have. Looked into using router but by time i finally found a easy to make and understand jig i settled for what i know. Used screws w/dowel plugs. Just as well cause the amount of tools i plan on keeping in. Its been a little slow going but a great ...

Bunk Beds for the Boys #7: Finally, A Productive Week(end)...

2356 days ago by RobH | 7 comments »

Well, finally I can say that the bunk beds have progressed greatly over the past week. I was able to get my tail into gear when I got home from work and get some stuff done in the shop. I can finally report that the headboard and footboards are glued together. Here is a picture with one of the clients… I think one of the best parts of this stage of the project was that it allowed the kids to help me a little. The llittle one did not get into it that much, but our older one go...

Pangapanga sideboard #3: Dances with (de)laminations

1751 days ago by RobertHorton | 1 comment »

New bandsaw blades finally arrived, so it’s time to transform one thick inlay into several thin inlays. One small void deep in the middle of the lamination caused one of the arcs to open up. Theoretically, I could superglue this and put it back in the form. We’ll hold onto this as a spare in case I goof one of the others. The design also calls for two straight inlays, so I cut the vinyl for those before changing the saw setup. Stupid me, I received a sharp reminder of...

Observations #7: I Need More Time

2244 days ago by Russel | 3 comments »

Douglas Bordner posted his first marquetry project and it was not only impressive, but motivational. The second pen-turners swap is under way and I am enjoying watching it as much as the first one. Intarsia, veneering, bending, carving, bowls, spindles … All fascinating stuff. I have never done any of it. But I’d like to and Doug’s marquetry just reminded me of all the skills and techniques that I still have to learn. And brings me to just one more reason to continu...

Conner Prairie #1: Interesting day

538 days ago by Ron Harper | 2 comments »

I have been doing some volunteer work at the Conner Prairie living history park. I am really looking forward to the opening of the park for the season, and working in period garb in the Carpenter’s shop. My volunteer time has thus far has been spent honing edge tools. In my own shop my bench planes are metal except for the new smoother that Don McConnell of Old Street Tools made for me. So, it was a learning experience when I got to work on truing up a wooden plane sole. I put a Stanley...

Having a nice weekend...

1406 days ago by Rick Boyett | 0 comments »

Saturdays can be tricky for me. I want to work in my shop. My wife wants us to go out somewhere… anywhere. Today we struck a happy medium. I took her out shopping for baby stuff (we’re working on an adoption) and she didn’t sigh even once when I pulled the car into the Woodcraft in Addison.. I had my #5 Bailey with me so I could check out a Hock blade but they didn’t have any in stock. I ended up buying a Pinnacle blade by IBC. I also bought a set of Groz engi...
