Shop #3: Workbench

01-14-2011 03:55 PM by Big Ben | 25 comments »

My old bench was just not cutting it. Not sturdy enough for using hand planes, could not store other large tools, it was too low (I am 6’7”) and it was just not cool. From Woodworking For my new bench I choose to use Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) for the top and Douglas Fir for the legs. Here are some of the other choices I made for the bench: From Woodworking Legs – Co planer with top, 5.25” x 5” x 39” with Mortise and Tenon joints that will be pegge...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #225: "The Project" part 2

01-14-2011 02:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I must say, I am somewhat shocked. I don’t know why, but things are going quite smoothly and I don’t know what to think of it. We are starting day three of the project and so far I have no disasters to report. In fact, quite to the contrary. Everything is going well and I am very surprised how – well, nice – the pieces are looking. I received several emails and personal messages yesterday, but other than orders, I didn’t really respond. If you were one o...

Woodworking Economics #1: 2010 in Review

01-14-2011 10:19 AM by live4ever | 12 comments »

One of the issues with hobbies is that they tend to suck up a lot of cash and compete with other priorities such as eating, clothing oneself, bills, etc. I try to meticulously track my woodworking-related purchases for several reasons: 1) It helps me keep track of my spending.2) It allows me to keep a running list of the things I have, what I paid for them, and where I got them from. This would be particularly useful for insurance purposes in the event of burglary or fire. 3) It...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #7: Got Leg?

01-14-2011 07:14 AM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

I’ve learned a lot during this build. For some reason, I decided that it would be easier to form the feet after I had glued all 4 sides together. I don’t know why I thought that but it turns out not to be true and in hindsight I realize that if I had done something to screw up a foot it would have been a pain to fix the problem. Here is one side of the foot formed And now the other I also put in the supports for the bottom and installed some 1/2” ply for the b...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #2: Day 2 Late again!!!

01-14-2011 07:14 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

I used to hate students like me who know when the course starts but still show up late, mea culpa. I was 15 minutes late again today as I had to go into Winnipeg for my uncle’s funeral today. Usually we can drive in and out in good time but today the roads were terrible, with semis, pickups and cars littering the ditches along the Trans Canada… anyway we got there and back safely although at one point I thought I was going to have to attend a smash up on a bridge, but fortunatel...

Beekeeping: 8 Frame Solar Wax Melter #2: Case Work Complete

01-14-2011 07:05 AM by DoctorDan | 1 comment »

The casework on the Wax Melter is complete. The glass is installed in the top panel (hinges pending.) A back door was cut, laminated and hinged. Two lips (on the glass panel & the the lower door) to keep water from running into the doors. I just need to fine tune the hinges and attach a handle. The next upgrades are metal angle to hold various filters and to build a stand to keep it off the ground. Details on my blog.

In the Shop #2: The Entrance

01-14-2011 06:47 AM by Hoakie | 3 comments »

This fall I had several run ins with my chisels. The first one resulted in a 1” gash in the heel of my right palm. I was working on redoing some DC and had old carving chisels on a box on a shelf below where I was working. I didn’t see it before hand but one of the chisels was sticking sharp end up and as I withdrew my hand….YOWZERS. Went to the doc for a tetanus shot but no stitches required. My second incident was pure sheer stupidity. I was working on the inla...
