SAWS at Calgary StampedeSAWS was present at the Western Showcase Creative Arts & Crafts exhibit on July 10 at the Calgary Stampede. That’s me in the middle. I look younger in a cowboy hat!! Our bi-annual juried exhibition is on Sept 11 -19 Center court Southcenter mall. Anyone in the Calgary area please check it out.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #56: Table Saw Adjustments and Miter Saw Station

08-27-2015 09:10 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

Just a quick update on several issues that have been forcing all of my attention. Hitachi C10FL Table Saw IssuesI mentioned earlier that the saw had been neglected for a while and so there was a lot of cleaning, adjusting and correcting to so. Tonight I managed to resolve some of the vibration and noise issues when running it. When I previously adjusted the blade direction to be parallel to the left miter slot, I didn’t pay attention to the back trunnion support’s relationship ...

I see the budget mobile workstation for a router and table saw by miketw. Does anyone have those plans or any like them? Or maybe a link to some.

Yet another workbench #1: My belt and suspenders design.

08-27-2015 06:35 PM by JonasB | 2 comments »

So I decided I needed to finally build a real woodworking bench for my new workspace. I got all the books by Chris Schwarz, checked all the back issues of woodworking mags and browsed the internet in preparation. Then the first thing I did was break one of Chris Schwarz rules. I decided to design my own rather then duplicate a historical bench. I think I had valid reasons. My workspace is small. I could not fit a long bench. A short bench means planning forces have a bigger impact, so I d...

My New Workbench #5: The Home Stretch

08-27-2015 11:54 AM by mramseyISU | 1 comment »

Finally I’m done. Break out the champagne. Here’s the home stretch, I took some time off but where I left off was everything but the shelf. I bought a Stanley 45 back in May and really hadn’t used it much so I figured the shelf on this bench was the way to go. I could learn on something that only I’d see and if I screwed something up so what. By the end of it I was getting pretty consistent tongue and groove joints. Once I got all of them planed down with the jo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1611: New Designs for Autumn

08-27-2015 07:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a cool, gentle rain and the sun wasn't even really up yet. I have noticed this past week that whether it is cloudy or not, it is taking longer and longer to get light in the mornings.Something else changed as well. That cool, crispness is in the air again. After the heavy humidity and warmth that we experienced last week, it seems we have turned another page and are beginning a new chapter of seasons. Autumn is definitely knocking at our door. I never mind t...

Round Kitchen Counter Project. #5: Staining and Waterlox finish

08-27-2015 07:06 AM by Jeff | 4 comments »

Finely got around to staining and finishing the top; kinda forced into it do to our annual corn roast where friends and family from all over the country get together and the wife put her foot down and said we need a place to site for meals plus I needed to make bar stools as well. This counter top has sat unfinished for more than 5 months with many temperature and humidity changes so I think acclamation was complete. These first few pics are of the top re-sanded and wet down for grain rais...

Joints #4: The Reverse Glue Joint Aug 2015

08-27-2015 01:47 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

A question was raised regarding the reverse glue joints I used on Edna’s Kitchen Workbenches. To best address this question and the fact I had off cuts remaining I decided to add it as a blog. The reverse glue joint is exactly that . Reverse. A matching profile is cut on each piece to be joined simply by reversing the timber before cutting. Glue. The joint is designed to be fixed by glueing. Joint. Its one of the many joint methods available to join timber. However...

Veggie Bin / Cookbook Shelf #2: Finally Getting Started !

08-26-2015 10:54 PM by RandyH | 0 comments »

This blog is now about a Work In Progress. Well, its been a long time since I first posted this – but I have been putting together a little bit of a woodshop out in my garage. This has taken a lot of effort in getting the space cleaned up, cleared out and improved. I first built a set of large storage shelves for putting all (or at least most of) our storage bins onto. This created a lot of usable floor space. I also added insulation above the garage, and glued 2” thick foam...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #21: Fabricating the Flip Blind Door Frames

08-26-2015 09:55 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview I’ve enjoyed using the layout boat for fishing, but duck season is only a month away and it’s time to finish the final stages of making this boat “disappear” from wary ducks in the marsh. That involves fabricating flip blind doors, a dog blind, and brushing out the entire boat. Fabricating the flip blind door frames requires head brackets, foot brackets, and tubular framing. Head Brackets Both aluminum crossbars attach to brackets screwed to the...
