A journey into the workshop. #74: Drill press table V 2.0 is well under way!

11-12-2010 04:59 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

In all my cleanup, I found one of the laminations I did a long time ago for my drill press table re-do. (I royally botched the dadoes on the first one… ). So with limited shop time over the last few evenings I have been able to… #1. Trim the hardboard to be flush with the rest of the lamination. #2. Rip and attach the 3/4” walnut edge trim. #3. Rout out the through hole for the replaceable insert. #4. Rout the rabbet for the replaceable insert. #5. Drill for, and install...

French Fry Friday #2: November 12, 2010

11-12-2010 03:25 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

On this French Fry Friday, I’m going to feature a mirror. This was a custom mirror order that tied into the “Cars” theme. I started with my standard 6 drawer dresser painted it red for the customer, but they needed a mirror. This is the design we came up with.. It is made from two circles slightly different sizes. The outer black (tire) and the inner red (hub). I did it that way to give it some detail and to thicken the mirror frame. It was all built by turning my router into a com...

A Special Unicorn Project #12: Ready To Start

11-12-2010 02:30 PM by William | 5 comments »

That’s right. The title says, “ready to start”. It appears after doing a few similar projects as this, that I have to get to this point in the process before I can actually get started. Now is when I start shaping everything and thinking about my details. I think it is shaping up to be a real interesting piece. There isn’t much I can tell you at this point that you can’t see plainly in the photo. There is one major change I made in it. I decided I didn’t li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #162: Reaching a Milestone

11-12-2010 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I can finally say that I am ‘finished’ with the Skating Pond Pattern. I spent all of yesterday completing the instructions and assembling the pattern packet. It came out to be 24 pages long and has 52 photographs included. It is by far the most ambitious project that I have made. I decided not to include the individual stories for the characters, due to the size of the pattern already. I am really fighting with myself as to put them in or not. Part of me wishes to include ...

Shipyard Memories #1: The Smaug Blog: Wood Boatbuilding 101, A Trip to the Sawmill

11-12-2010 08:56 AM by shipwright | 15 comments »

To those of you who have requested more photos and explanations of my boatbuilding days, thank you for sending me into my stacks of old photos and allowing me the enjoyment of remembering a youth spent doing what I loved and creating just really cool stuff. My days building wooden boats, from age 22 to 55, are all magical memories to me from the aromatic smell of yellow cedar coming out of the planer to the amazing geometrical shapes of bent frames to the sheer mass of some of the timbers we ...

The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge #18: Shoe Challengers Unveiled!

11-12-2010 07:29 AM by Jordan | 25 comments »

Hello fellow Lumberjocks.Over the course of the next few hours, I will be posting the finished footwear of the survivors of The Great Lumberjocks Shoe Challenge 2010 to the projects page.Although there were 22 people who decided to take the challenge, for various reasons only 7 were left standing. However, it was so worthwhile as I saw talent emerge from those who thought they had none, and some who decided that carving would be a great asset to their present wood working skills. I felt t...

11-12-2010 07:08 AM by ray6576 | 5 comments »

I have spent about six months looking at various pictures, plans and ideas that other woodworkers used for their woodworking bench. I finally settled on a design that I saw in Popular Woodworking. I chose the 21st Century Woodworking bench.

Slant Front Secretary #1: Kickoff

11-12-2010 06:06 AM by DavidH | 1 comment »

I have been a subscriber of Charles Neil’s woodworking show (Mastering Woodworking with Charles Neil) since its inception in October of 2009. To this point I really have not had time to follow along with a build; I’ve put one or two on my bucket list to come back to at some point in time. However, this time I just can’t help myself. A project that has been number one on my bucket list for sometime is a slant front secretary. It just so happens that the next project will be j...
