Atom #4: Good News, Bad News

11-26-2010 04:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

My hands stopped shaking long enough for me to pluck up the courage to tell myself I didn’t need a jig, just zero clearance on the table saw blade and a piece of MDF to back up the rear end of the box.--Again please disregard the holes in what is just a previously enjoyed piece of MDF which is now being used for zero clearance. You might just see the saw blade peeking through the slot, by about 3/4 mm. Well the good news. It worked. I sawed all around with no mishap. Just a bare vene...

Daily Update #83: November 26, 2010

11-26-2010 03:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for November 26, 2010 . Very busy in the shop. Black Friday when most people are gearing up for Christmas, we are stopping our orders. With a 4-5 week back log, there is no other way to fit things into the schedule. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #176: Time to Focus

11-26-2010 02:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

OK. It is time to set some serious goals. I should be the poster child as to why goals need to be set. I find it amazing how I can be busy every second of the day, yet unless I have some specific goals in mind, I come through the day without seeming to accomplish much. Anyone out there have the same experience? I thought so. (Come on! If I can admit it – you can too!) I feel as if I have accomplished little of substance since the last catalog deadline a couple of weeks ago. O...

French Fry Friday #3: Oak End Table

11-26-2010 02:55 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Just a reminder French Fri Friday is when I showcase some of the smaller things that often get overlooked. End tables are something that can be sold as in a pair or will even work by itself. One thing that I have learned is that to make one more versatile it is best to design and finish it where it can be view for all sides. With the need for surfaces in the middle if the room, next to a mid-room sofa, most unfinished end table will not work easily. A little planning ahead and a little mo...

Atom #3: Mice with tweezers

11-26-2010 02:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 15 comments »

Back in my computer days thats how we thought the Japanese put their kit together. They used mice with tweezers! Anyway steady hands needed here for the assembly. I had cut four 2mm square Ebony strips for the edging. So here we go. Edge the pieces. Just showing the top here. --Each side piece was edged (one edge only) using the excess from the above. They were all trimmed to size on the disc sander, 180 grit disc. Attach side one to top, other sides ready and waiting. I think they enjoy w...

Tasmanian Woodworking... #7: Timber for a cutting board?

11-26-2010 12:33 PM by degoose | 17 comments »

I had a timber merchant want to swap timber for one of my end grain butcher boards… This is the board… and for it I received several pieces of Tasmanian Black Heart Sassafras, some Tiger Myrtle and a few bits of Huon Pine.. His wife had seen the board the day before and I think he made some brownie points.. I reckon I got the better part of the deal and so does he… we both win…

Curly maple leg vice for English "Nicholson" bench.

11-26-2010 11:05 AM by Matt Stauffer | 25 comments »

I’ve been working on this bench for I guess 2 months now on my days off. It’s southern yellow pine. I dug around the shelf for at least an hour picking out boards at Home Depot, but could not find any without knots. Not one. Must be an Alabama thing. I decided that a wood screw was in order for my phantom vintage bench, and found one at Lake Erie Toolworks. I didn’t want to invest so much into a vice screw, but I could not find a vintage screwbox on e...

Dumb and Dusty

11-26-2010 06:32 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

We have been away for a few weeks having been working on a condominium hideaway. No shop so I’ve been limited to re-mounting existing cabinets that were falling down, putting sliding shelves in the low kitchen cabinets, replacing old electrical outlets with grounding outlets. Organizing storage, including moderate tool storage etc etc. I’ll sounl like Brian Meeks if I say that Mr. Saw Stop was happy to see me when we got back but then! After eating Thanksgiving dinner at son...
