What magazines pay for woodworking tips?

01-10-2010 06:10 PM by eastside | 8 comments »

Hello everyone can you tell me what woodworking magazines will pay you for submitting tips about woodworking? I don’t subscribe to any but recently I bought the American woodworker to read an article written by Darrel Pert. I noticed that they will pay $100.00 for a shop tip. I think that’s pretty good. So I sent some in and they bought one but rejected a lot more. Thought i try some other mags with the already written tips and see what happens. When I’m through getting rejected I...

Metric vs. S.A.E.

01-10-2010 04:56 PM by richgreer | 23 comments »

I’ve lived in a 2 measurement system world my entire life. I’m seeing a very slow transition to the metric system but it is very slow progress and we in the woodworking world may be one of the slowest segments to transition. Every once in a while we pay a price for the confusion that comes from having 2 measurement systems. The shaft that supports the tool rest on my lathe looks like it is 1 inch in diameter. I wanted a different style tool rest and I ordered one with a...

Double Dovetail Box #1: Milling the parts.

01-10-2010 08:42 AM by Don | 7 comments »

A1Jim suggested I post a blog to describe how I did the double dovetail Joint I used on my Spalted Mango Box so here it goes. I hope people find this helpful and if you have questions please post them and I’ll do my best to answer them. I also greatly appreciate feedback on anything. I was going to show how to make the joint using some scrap wood but since it’s just as much work as using good wood so I decided I may as well use good wood and build a whole box. I’ll be pre...

Just Another Day #1: Bike Rack

01-10-2010 08:06 AM by johnnymo | 1 comment »

This will be the first of many blog entries that I will post every once in a while. I believe this will be a good way to keep track of what I’ve done on a semi-day to day basis.Well, I got another pallet of wood from my work on Friday and decided to wait until this morning to unload it. My wife asked me if I could water the plants and trees while I was outside…ok…no biggie. I could let the water run while I’m unloading the wood. Well, after I unloaded the wood I ha...

Two step stool

01-10-2010 06:29 AM by bgilb | 5 comments »

This is my first wood working project ever. It’s a step stool for my girlfriend. I got a R4511 for Christmas and that’s where it started. I still need to sand it some more, and carve hearts into the sides. I used finger joints, and the three side pieces are held together with tongue and groove joints for extra strength. Is this strong enough? There is another piece in the back with finger joints for extra strength. The finger joints had gaps in some parts, not really sure how t...
