01-26-2011 05:57 PM by mdj | 3 comments »

I have tried to search the site for previous postings, perhaps I’m not experienced enough for that task, but anyway, I’m trying to find a jig for gluing up compound miter joints. Building an open top box with about 3 in sides that has a 15 deg flare. in lieu of cutting blocks for the corners, has anyone come up with a jig for this situation. any links appreciated

Evolution of a Shop #15: Air compressor gets a new home

01-26-2011 05:55 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

I had some left over plywood from building a play kitchen for my kiddos and I was tired of looking at it in my shop. So, I killed two birds with one stone by building a new enclosure for my pancake style air compressor. I’ve wanted to get the compressor to the middle of my shop for a while to make it easier to use. Right now it lives under my planer and I don’t have my shop plumbed with air hose, so I wheel it out. That’s proven to be a pain, so I don’t use it that ...

carving "Thunderbolt" #5: saddle completed and starting to get a head

01-26-2011 05:25 PM by mpounders | 10 comments »

Finished the simple details on the saddle and have the horn stuck in place temporarily. It may need to be cut down a bit more. I would normally do the stirrups, but you can’t see many saddle details when the rider is mounted. I used a stoning technique on the cowboy’s chaps to try and give the effect of angora or goat-skin chaps….may need to do it a bit heavier. “Stoning” is a process of using a dremel or other rotary tool with an abrasive wheel or cyl...

Doll carrying case #1: Box pieces completed

01-26-2011 03:50 PM by Greg S | 0 comments »

This is a pretty straight-forward box for my niece to carry her Barbies in. The pics here are of one half of the box. I inserted melamine for walls so there will be a total of 4 “rooms” for her Barbies. My wife is going to paint and decorate each room. We were on a budget on this one, otherwise I would’ve used a bit thinner stock (to reduce the weight). Fairly rudimentary for some of you true “jocks” but hey… I’m learning as I go. Will post more...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #237: Continued Progress

01-26-2011 03:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The day seemed to fly by yesterday. I spent the better part of the morning and early afternoon catching up on paperwork and emails. It always amazes me how quickly I can fall behind in those departments. It seems that if I am not on top of things for even a day, they seem to pile up quickly. I like corresponding with my customers and my friends. My customers are nice and pleasant to talk to and they always have some good ideas or thoughts on my patterns. I love to see what others do w...

Scroll saw Heart shape bowl

01-26-2011 08:51 AM by devann | 14 comments »

After seeing all the fine scroll saw work on this site I wanted to share some pictures of a bowl that I acquired from a consignment shop where I sell furniture and other things that I build. First off let me be clear, I DID NOT MAKE THIS BOWL. I contacted Martin and he said this was the place for it, just credit the author. I do not know who made this bowl. The story from the consignment shop owner is it belonged to some fellow and had been handed down thourgh t...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #5: The penultimate class :-(... I was on time again!

01-26-2011 07:26 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well even after having to go back to work for an hour after getting the kids home from school and Jenn home from work I managed to make it to class with about a minute to spare. Today was mostly about working on our nail trays, but Ryan did give us a good demo on using a rabbet plane (to create a rabbet for the bottom of the nail tray) and a demo of a hand brace. I was impressed with how easy it was to drill a half inch hole with the brace…I will be keeping my eyes open for one now! ...

Triton Router Update!

01-26-2011 06:21 AM by thiel | 3 comments »

Gang, A while ago I posted this blog entry ( about how I needed to replace the worm drive in my Triton table router since it had stripped. Triton (having been purchased by HTC tools) sent me out the new part with no questions asked, and I’d found an excellent description of the replacement process online. At the time, a couple of us noted that a nylon part for a worm gear seemed like a bad idea… and no surprise when six months later...

The Making of 'MY' Octagon #1: I DID IT- made an octagon

01-26-2011 06:08 AM by TJ65 | 23 comments »

Guess What I did it!!!!!!! Made a perfect Octagon and hopefully another as this was just the test case. I want to thank each and every one of you who helped. On the forum 1-how do you make an octagon - 2-making octagon cont . As I couldn’t have done it without you all. My problem mainly is my lack of Maths skills to put it mildly – they suck!!! Angles, triangles, numbers are all in the same boat in my way of thinking. Difficult, hard, impossible! Anyway as I wanted to do a perfect octagon I...
