Starting up a workshop the second time around. #7: The gentle art of persuasion

06-26-2010 09:03 AM by David Kirtley | 3 comments »

Well, the base is assembled. I will try to get some pics up to compare to the plans but it is real close. I trimmed up the tenons with a big honkin’ chisel that I use as a slick. Makes quick work of it. Grabbed a persuader (5 lb sledge) and a leftover block trimmed off the legs and discussed the relative merits of the shoulders of the tenons seating against the legs. Everything sits nice and solid now. The only construction I have left to do is to pin the tenons and glue on the pad ...

Comment on Virus Protection

06-26-2010 06:42 AM by wichle | 15 comments »

All who are blogging here have computers on the internet. All should have some sort of virus protection. For the past 4+ years I have been using “Avast”. Available on line . . .free. . I have been alerted a number of times, with a siren if you have your sound on and always a large round caution light and message. Pretty nice software.

06-26-2010 06:20 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 12 comments »

First things first I glued the rear legs in the morning, did’t take a picture but I did take one on how I router the legs on the router table.

Finished one set of cabinets on to the next

06-26-2010 05:59 AM by Rustic | 8 comments »

Well, I finally finished my 1st rolling base cabinet minus the doors. I will post pics tomorrow. I am now looking to build a few cabinets to hang on the wall. I plan to build them soon. I just need to get a few projects out of the way. I am also going to reorganize my shop so I can have room to work. I just remembered that I need to build a cabinet to store my band saw in. So looks like that will be my next big project. Should have that done by next week. Just thought I would keep y’all...

ANOTHER Interesting Lowe's Incident...

06-26-2010 05:31 AM by Uncle_Salty | 10 comments »

Okay… I can’t really help myself, but I shopped at Lowe’s again and had ANOTHER grim reminder of that great service that we have all come to know and love while shopping there! Monday, Wifey and I headed out to Lowe’s to get a cool Rubbermaid adjustable closet shelving system that she had eyeballed over the weekend. Yep! That very same Lowe’s that I wrote about last February! I had completed a very solid bill of materials and knew the correct number of rack...

Extremely Average #175: I wrote a guest blog piece...

06-26-2010 04:31 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Today I wrote a guest blog post. Sometimes I get requests to write some drivel for someone else, and I usually agree. The problem is that on those days, when I use my best stuff for another blog, I am left with just dreck for my own blog. I decided to give an update on StumbleUpon and how it had done since I wrote those pieces. If you are curious about SU, check it out. Brian

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #5: Soap dishes... do I hear soap dishes?!

06-26-2010 04:06 AM by Jonathan | 3 comments »

The next items I will begin building for the fundraising auction will be soap dishes. Jordan and his wife have generously donated some of the their soaps for the cause. Thanks Jordan! So, I will be pairing up some of the soap with its own soap dish. Some of the other soaps will be sold as standalone items, with those proceeds adding to the bottom line of the fundraiser. During a visit to the lumber supply store a while back, I found some red oak trim in the scrap bin. Not knowing wha...

Furniture finish

06-26-2010 02:35 AM by canadianchips | 1 comment »

I am asking for help ! I have used a product called “Black Bison Paste and wax Polish” . I am unable to buy it where I live. Rockler sells it but the USA has restrictions in shipping by postal or Air. Since I moved to Eastern Canada my options are limited. I am able to get BRIWAX. Just wondering if any of you have used Briwax ? I have been hired to restore an old dining table top.

Oak Pub Table #1: The Beginning

06-26-2010 02:08 AM by VinnieP | 4 comments »

For my parents’ 30th anniversary I told them I would build them a table for their remodeled basement. It is going to be solid white oak. I orignally planned on using quartersawn for the top, but in the end decided not to use it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’m excited because I’ve never built a table before and I’ll get to use my new grizzly jointer. I’m nervous because I’ve never built a table before. So here it goes. I’...
