My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1393: And Then There Were Five

12 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up the remaining three poses of reindeer for my reindeer and sleigh vignette. Now all I need to do is assemble the two additional deer pattern packets and also the sleigh packet and I will be good to go. I had estimated that the sanding and assembly of the three deer would take half the day, and I planned to take the other half to kind of coast and do some things around the house, or some of my personal creating, but as usual I grossly underestimated myself...

Furniture #9: Re cycled Jarrah stool

13 hours ago by robscastle | 5 comments »

If you read my Sledge Hammer blog I initally started making a wooden stool from all the Jarrah off cuts I recovered from my Potato Crate repairs. Well I got active on the weekend and started. The seat I used a off cut for the joint tongue Once I had a reasonable fit I glued it up and began to route the rebates for the legs. The legs I tried to make the legs from some some of the stock But after cutting the tenons I decide they were in fact too big and woul...

Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-op, Expressions in Wood 2014 #1: Setting up

22 hours ago by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi all, I think a blog is the best place for this article, my wood club had it’s annual show this weekend and I thought I would post some pics if anybody is interested in our work. All proceeds from the show went to the childrens ward of our local hospital and the local community bank matched the money we made dollar for dollar. There were about 200 items on display so I will only post pictures the of the tables and some of my particular favourites, if anybody wants a close up ...

A 24 Thou Repair

1 day ago by GarageWoodworks | 6 comments »

One of my dovetail joints didn’t come out exactly perfect. Two pins had a 24 thou (0.024″) gap behind them. I tried to keep my cool and made two slightly oversized wedges and feathered the end w/ sand paper. After gluing into place they are almost invisible.

Planes restored - Because I can. #12: How to repair a Bench plane knob with a base blow out.

1 day ago by Don W | 5 comments »

A pretty common break on a bench plane is the bottom of the knob being blown out. There typically isn’t enough surface area to glue a piece back on, so here is an alternative. I show the repair done with a contrasting wood, but it can be matched if you’d prefer. . Here is how I repair them. .

Toddlers Workbench Build #5: Glue Ups and Legs!

1 day ago by Airframer | 4 comments »

The latest news in this saga are some final glueups on the top and getting the legs glued up as well. I started that yesterday while my apprentice was out of the house. Today we removed the clamps and cleaned and squared everything up. (Mauricios old No. 6 on it’s 3rd bench build ;-) ) Now it is really starting to resemble it’s big brother.. Then we marked one end for the tenon for the end cap and chopped it out.. (Tried for an action pic of...

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

1 day ago by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #12: It's all done--Final Entry

2 days ago by CharlesA | 6 comments »

After about 6 coats of Arm-R-Seal (I use gloss for the first few coats because it is easier to deal with, then satin at the end), it’s looking pretty good. I knocked off the rough spots between coats, and thinned it a bit for the last couple of coats. I’m very pleased with the color and the finish. Arm-R-Seal is a funny finish, because you have to be patient through the first couple of coats before it starts to look good. Here are a few pics.

Misc. Shop Stuff #47: Stanley Clapboard Gauge

2 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Yep, had siding to replace on the house, prior to painting, and used this tool: I’m going to go way out on a limb and suggest I’m the first in my town to use one of these in the last 70+ years… Tools that work. Maybe I should do a review here on LJs.
