Woo Hoo

2213 days ago by Fishsomo | 6 comments »

OK, some of you might recall my “Danger Will Robinson” experience this week with my Wilton Miter saw. Well, glory be to God, funny how things work out. I’ve been pricing a replacement and was kinda torn between the Dewalt and the Hitachi. Love the Dewalt but the cam lever they have to lock the table is broke in half the store demos I’ve seen so that was spooking me a bit. Anyway just this morning they put the Hitachi 12” 12FCH on Clearance ot Lowes for $136.00...

I painted my car's trunk white so the wood samples would show up

2258 days ago by Cephas | 3 comments »

I painted my car’s trunk white so my walnut samples would show up better, but, alas, its the camera (not the operator) that is inefficient. Sorry, I havent blogged lately but have been trying to catch up. Ive given up on pics until I get a different camera! I now have a car that’s 2/3 & 1/3!!! Now the thing Ive discovered while trying to sand/plane 50+yrs off my slabs is: This 2x workbench is not up to the task of full-blown wood working that I’m faced with. Just trying...

First of all I want to thank people for the kind words concernign this piece.Since there has been several questions about it I thought I’d take this time to talk about it.This piece has an interesting story about how it came to be.I had just finished a really large piece,very involved,very over the top(I’m lookin for a picture now),and wanted a break from the large project and gave myself a self imposed design project,build and design something with this small amount of wood that...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1143: Maintenance

199 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With autumn upon us and winter quickly approaching, like it or not there are things we need to do to get ready for the upcoming season. I find this time of year a good time to get everything checked and make sure all is well before the long cold winter. Since I am planning to drive to Chicago in a couple of weeks, I took my car in for some routine maintenance. The ‘ole girl is nearly ten now, and like all of us who age, some things need to be replaced and others just kind of re-vamp...

2509 days ago by frank | 1 comment »

Wood Stories of a Forgotten Time ....and as i was gazing into your wooden whispery depth, i found that i became as one translated to an-other epoch, where time had slowed down to that of one continual length, while all around there was the hearing of seeing one called enoch…. —-come walk my way and i shall be a story for you to tell, tis not this sound you hear the wind brushing past your leaves, and who is there to shake your branch if not by golden fire brewed spell, till ...

My First Workbench #35: Leg Vice Chop Shaping Complete

235 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Got to spend some more time in the shop after I put the kids to bed. I continued shaping the chop and here is the result….one nicely beveled chop, using chisels and the Nice Ash block plane. A deadly combination—-that poplar never stood a chance. By the time I had all the bevels done (30minutes!) I realized I had time to go for flattening the sides, and I ended up with this: I am very happy with the results. Got a little workout in and finished the chop’s s...

Getting Started

2495 days ago by Dano | 8 comments »

Last time I discussed gluing up the legs, well the first lesson I learned is that gluing up pieces is more challenging than I thought. First I have 4 new Jet parallel clamps but I wanted to glue up 4 legs with 3 pieces of 4/4 stock each then cut them to size. So I thinks to myself – if I glue all of them up at once and put all four legs in the same clamps I could clamp all of them at the same time. I had glue everywhere! It is hard to keep all of the lumber aligned appropriately when ap...

2013 days ago by itsme_timd | 2 comments »

Decisions, decisions! Lots of great stuff to choose from in Round 2. I have to admit, I made out pretty good on this! ;-) For blanks I took some spalted oak ~ apple ~ pear ~ bamboo ~ sassafrass ~ English yew ~ spalted holly ~ red cedar ~ camphor ~ quilted maple ~ maple and cherry together ~ composite deck material From what I saw these great blanks came from ryno101, Karson, scottb and rb765. I’m looking forward to trying them all but have to admit I’m very curious how ...
