My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #114: Looking Ahead

09-25-2010 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is just another one of those days when I can’t wait to get up. There are so many wonderful and exciting things to do that my head can’t fall back asleep! It is quiet here and still quite dark out. I opened the window just a bit more and threw a light blanket over my lap so I can feel the cool air of the morning. You can barely smell that someone in the distance has a fire going, but it mostly smells like autumn. By that I mean it smells like the woods on a cool day. The sc...

A Beginner's Thoughts #2: Leaning back...

09-25-2010 04:59 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

it’s been a while since I’ve been here but a lot has happened. After all my thought process and decisions to go ‘power’, I’m now leaning back towards just hand tools. I got the 15” planer I was looking into and have used it a few times, along with the 6” Jointer and TS. Man those things create a lot of wood chips and dust! Which is one of the reasons I’m leaning back. I don’t have a dust collection system and don’t really want o...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

09-25-2010 01:57 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...

Workshop #13: ShopQuest 2010- Still going

09-24-2010 11:24 PM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

Hi All, Even though I have made very little progress to complete organization of my shop I am still working at it. I took the time today to clean up the shop in order to tackle two more projects for my office suite, still need the printer table and a side table to match everything. You can see the rest of the furniture in my blog and project. So after about 3 hours or so here is what my shop looks like ready to go: That large pile laying in the back of the shop is the wood that is ...

A Disastrous Day for a Drawer

09-24-2010 10:56 PM by Ed Pirnik | 7 comments »

Oh the horror! Here in my cube at work, I’ve been storing one of my latest projects – a little cherry cabinet with a single small drawer in the very bottom of it. The drawer – like the cabinet itself – is dovetailed. Last night as the hour-hand on my watch hit “five,” I picked up the cabinet (which still hasn’t had its door mounted) to take it into the shop and get to work on a couple of finishing touches. Forgetting about the little drawer and...

Kerfmate for SawStop owners

09-24-2010 10:51 PM by swirt | 14 comments »

Sometimes when Friday arrives, your mind can’t help but start cutting outside the lines a bit.Like wondering if with the recent wave of KerfMaker spin-offs on LumberJocks, Sawstop owners will realize they don’t really need a kerfmaker. Just gauge the board between your fingers, then saw out the waste until you feel a little pinch and the saw stops. Then reset it (and replace the blade and cartridge) and continue in the other direction. Or wondering if the Veritas Catalog arrives in...

Humidor is almost done

09-24-2010 09:45 PM by mkrok | 1 comment »

I have been working on a humidor now for quite some time. The construction took about 2 weeks and I just sprayed the final coat of laquer on it about 5 minutes ago. The humidor is a birthday present for my father in-law, Big Al. I showed it to him on his birthday which was 9/10/2010, he is 80 years old. I’m actually very happy with how this piece came out. Here is a picture of it in my home made finishing booth. It’s a cardboard box. I alos included a picture here of ...

Table Saw Cabinet Project #4: Lifting Mechanism Concept Complete

09-24-2010 09:15 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 3 comments »

I’m pretty happy with this. A few details are missing. As shown, the handle that lowers the casters can also be used to pull the cabinet around. I need to add a lock so I can also push on the handle without the casters retracting. The middle casters are rigid and the outer ones are swivel. The weight of the cabinet will mostly be on the pipe which will somewhat act as a spring for uneven floors.
