Rasp Handles at the Drill Press

10-26-2014 12:05 AM by GarageWoodworks | 1 comment »

Rasp handles at the Drill Press I have a few rasps that were in need of handles. If I owned a lathe I would have quickly turned a few handles, but unfortunately I do not. I had really good luck turning drawer pulls at the drill press using a few rasps, so I thought I could use the same process to make a few handles. Because the handles are longer than the drawer pulls that I made in the past, I had to modify the process a little. I used my grinder to make a metal point for the wood to turn...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #808: Time to Draw

09-05-2012 09:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I woke up this morning to a quiet and gentle rain. Even now as I am sitting here writing, it is a wonderfully soothing sound. It is still dark out and I can feel the cool air coming in from the window – almost to the point of needing a light blanket. Autumn is definitely on its way. I find myself retiring early, just so I can awake earlier to enjoy these mornings longer. I know these next few months will pass quickly and I wish to enjoy every second of them that I can. The early...

Well i just got a commission for a picture frame from a friend of the families. they want it to be made out of hickory to match their cabinets and they want the design to be the same as that of their cabinets. here is what i came up with on sketchup. so i just ordered the wood from Goosebay Lumber which i have tried before and i was happy with what i got so i figured that i would go back to them. as always though i treated myself to some other small pieces of wood along with my order. ...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #6: Day 6 The final day

07-17-2010 02:32 AM by doorslammer | 5 comments »

Today was the last day of class in the morning. My priority was to get my bent lamination out of the jig and begin to fit and shape it. Due to the layout of my T nuts I wasn’t able to get as dramatic curves as I was hoping for but I think it turned out well none the less. After some final sanding I attached the back to the chair. I plan on plugging the screw holes with some walnut plugs but I think I’m going to finish both surfaces where they mate with at least one coat ...

Moral of the Story: Don't Click too Fast!

11-11-2008 12:52 AM by robbinscabin | 8 comments »

Dinner was on the stove doing it’s thing…It wouldn’t need my attention for a while so I thought I’d give myself a bit of time with my new hobby…checking out the new happenings on LumberJocks. It’s nearly as addicting as woodworking itself! So here’s where things went wrong! I glanced at the featured Lumber Jock and his 5 projects. Very nice. I love the random Lumber Jock feature! Then I scrolled down to the “Recent Projects”. I saw ...

portable handheld mortising jig "build blog" #4: the finalizing of the dovetail slides, and prefit everything together

10-14-2013 05:00 AM by hobby1 | 5 comments »

Hi guys Please:If you get tired of all this technical stuff I’m showing here, please let me know, and I’ll just post the highlights of the build with much less play by play details. The next thing I worked on was, assembling one set of dovetailed slide rails on the main baseplate, that will allow the router to travel in the “Y” axis direction. Here I’m using again my surface plate as the datum, to ensure the fixed slide is assembled perfectly square wit...
