Kudos to Highland Woodworking...

05-30-2010 06:48 AM by David Craig | 6 comments »

A week or so ago, I blogged about the purchase of a set of Narex chisels and the Work Sharp 3000. It was a great combination of chisel and sharpener and I was pleased with the results except for one 6mm chisel. The mortising chisels and the other 3 bench chisels sharpened nicely but I could not get a good edge on this one chisel. I kept an eye on it while sharpening, did not let it get too hot, and never noticed any bluing, but every time I got close to a clean edge, it would just crumble. ...

Booth building and shop organazation

05-30-2010 05:39 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Last week I covered a marketing plan for my business well this week Wether you are professional or hobbyist you can produce a professional looking booth for under $300.00 here what worked for me. My friend who has been coaching me on marketing give me some pointers for my booth :) First thing he said was make sure every thing coordinates (I know this sounds a little Martha Stewartish) but it will pay off in the long run what most small businesses fail to realize is to make everything look th...

LJ’s, Today I read a little bit about woodworking in a magazine, but not enough to blog about. The blog was frank discussion about my abysmal day on the golf course. It has a happy ending though. Brian

Gracie lectern #6: Marquetry 1

05-30-2010 04:15 AM by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

After posting Sandy I was hard pressed to post here again. I didn’t think posting a funny project among “friends” was such a big deal but apparently some people just can’t have it. But that’s the kind of forum I have enjoyed for almost 2 years, and now with so many people, can’t. Never the less, I started this project here and figure that I should, for my true buddies here, post the progress until the project is done. I will also post the Jewelry box He...

Just for Fun... #16: Miscellaneous News...

05-30-2010 01:11 AM by littlecope | 14 comments »

Working six days straight, other responsibilities, and a early heat wave conspired to leave me without time, energy, or drive to do any wood working for over a week!! I was feeling a little glum about that, so I finally squeezed in an hour or so yesterday… I feel better already!! Those of you who read this nonsense may recall this picture that I took of one of my Dad’s cribbing blocks sliced open:The sharp-eyed amongst you may have even noticed that these pieces are not book match...

How to make a bandsaw box

05-29-2010 10:43 PM by Stevinmarin | 42 comments »

Wow, there are a bazillion examples of bandsaw boxes on LumberJocks. I always thought they were complicated and had a hard time finding some really basic instruction. Well, here is a video for all of us bandsaw box newbies! The neat thing about bandsaw boxes is that if you give them away as gifts, people will be amazed and wonder about your woodworking prowess. They will think you are a woodworking god! Little will they know that you are a Mere Mortal and these boxes are totally easy to cr...

A peaceful evening just lathing around...

05-29-2010 04:32 PM by David Craig | 9 comments »

Late in the evening, I finally had a chance to correct an old turning that has laid on a shelf down in the shop for over a year. I think we can just consider this a “homework” project from jockmike2’s WoodTurning School and Coffee House. A couple years ago, a dear friend of mine wanted to help encourage my interest in lathing and picked up a harbor freight economy lathe and a set of their HSS chisels. I read some articles on turning and seen some really pretty pictures, b...
