Sketch This! #4: Ottoman/Coffee Table

02-03-2010 06:06 PM by John Steffen | 6 comments »

While I’m not one for sitting on the couch too often, I’m inclined to watch a couple shows during the week with my lady (if I don’t watch TV with her at least one or two night a week she gets grumpy). And then there’s Sundays during football season, but that’s a different story. Anyway, we have traditional couches, no recliners, and a very hard/pointy coffee table. And to be honest I like having a coffee table MOST of the time. But there are times where I r...

Wood in the 21 centery

02-03-2010 05:55 PM by Rogue | 5 comments »

Hey, check it out Rogue is finally in the 21st centery!! We just got the new site up. Its nothing fancy but neither am I. This has been along time coming. I’m sure some of you can relate when I say that I have more wood than money. Woodworking can be great way to get something you need but can’t accually affort!! Trades only work out about half the time. This is the case with the site. Worked and worked for someone and have never gotten the site that was agreed on. A freind put th...

New student coming today

02-03-2010 01:33 PM by hunter71 | 9 comments »

As an electrical contractor I taught many young people my trade. Some stayed with me many years and I got to see them become accomplished journeyman. Now in my 60’s I didn’t think I would teach anymore till yesterday. We met a new couple to the area some time back and I made them several things, we got to be friends and they visit my shop occasionally. I knew he was having a new shop built but not what for. Yesterday they stopped to see a glider /cradle I am building and John ment...

002: a rolling base for my planer #7: parallel sliding dovetail drawer slides, part I

02-03-2010 12:39 PM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

Last time in this series I put together some drawer boxes. Next they’d need slides, and for that I went with parallel sliding dovetails, which I first saw GaryK create in walnut here. I’ve wanted since I saw those early last year to try my hand at making some. I spent some time one night last week building a SketchUp model based on GaryK’s photos of his results and designed around a bit I had from the Incra set, then wrote up a plan of attack for how to go about building the...

New Garage, new SAW!

02-03-2010 08:08 AM by vwmike99 | 7 comments »

Since my last (and only) entry, I recently moved into a small place with a one car garage. Its smaller than my last place, so I have to rethink everythink I wanted to do. On a good note – today I finally purchased a new table saw! I’m the proud owner of a Ridgid R4511 (Granite Top) Table Saw! Looked all over Souther California trying to find a Home Depot that had one, and I found what I think might be the last one in So. Cal. Had to unload it from my van by myself, but it wor...

Evolution of a Shop #5: Good news, bad news. Short night, long day.

02-03-2010 08:07 AM by Cory | 9 comments »

It’s almost 1:00am and I’m sitting down to tell a bunch of people I’ve never met about the progress I’ve made on a space they’ve never been in. How wierd/addicted am I with this???!!! As you can probably tell I’m a little loopy. We had a sprinkler go wet last night at 3:30am so I had a short night/long day. Anyway, I managed to finish up most of the items for the bench. I put up the french cleat and hung some cabinets. I also attached a little bit of...

Greetings! Just a quick entry featuring some recent publicity – local newspapers are a great route for woodworkers and artists to display their talents.

Glueing up panels???

02-03-2010 06:36 AM by janice | 33 comments »

Just curious about this. Is there a general rule on how wide your boards should be that your are glueing up for a panel to keep them from cuping? I was also told years ago but never found it to help, that you should rip one board with the grain down, then the next one with it up. Is that true and if so, why do mine sometimes fit perfect on one side and not the other side? What am I doing wrong. This gets so aggrevating. I feel like I’m not learning anything over the years, I just ...
