Not sure whether to post this under Videos or Blogs, but since I could not find an ADD NEW VIDEO button, here goes under Blogs. (Ah. . . just found I can post it into Videos). A chum has just sent me this excellent educational video about forest habitats. It may seem a bit slow to load, but by gum its comprehensive, and a very good intro for the uninitiated.

Dining Room Set Refurbish #2: Interesting challenges from past "fixes" to the chair

11-06-2010 07:23 PM by mtkate | 3 comments »

It’s amazing how many problems can result when someone tries to fix something fast. And all this is on just one chair!!! . . . . .On the last image – not only was an extra screw hole added but the screw was put in straight onto the rail and whoever did it pierced the wood a bit on the other side as the screw was simply too long (AND too thick). I guess the most difficult part will be filling in the sections of oak that broke off. Over the last couple ...

Making Progress ( I think!)

11-06-2010 05:14 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #156: Last Trip to the Wood Store of the Season

11-06-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What an adventure yesterday was! I am very happy to be back home here safe and sound. We headed out just after 5 am and we didn’t make it back home here until almost 10 pm. Even though it was a long day, it seemed to go by very quickly. The only negative part of the day was the persistent rain, which doesn’t look as if it is going to stop until Thursday or Friday from the looks of the weather map. We knew that rain was predicted for the day, but we didn’t expect the q...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #15: Leg Joinery

11-06-2010 10:06 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Here’s some pictures of the joinery. All done by hand (except my coping saw blade broke and the jigsaw was closer than the store.) I had a bit of a blow out while chiseling from the top, still have the piece to go back in. I think I’ll end up wedging all the tenons. You’ll notice the two bottom ones are different sizes to allow for the sliding dovetail.

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #14: ?Curve the upright?

11-06-2010 10:01 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

I’ve got the legs together now. I feel the upright is a little thick. I’m thinking of bowing the sides with a gentle curve of about 1-1.5cm in from each side. What are peoples thoughts? I thought to centre it or have it off centre opposite to where the stretcher tennon will come through.

Scrollsaw Chest Project #5: Finishing

11-06-2010 05:21 AM by William | 14 comments »

Today all that was left was to do a little more sanding, remove all the dust using a tack cloth and vacuum, and apply whatever finish I decided on. So here is how it went. There was actually not much sanding left to do. I did find a few little spots that were “scuffy” that I smoothed out. Then I went over the entire thing, inside and out, with fine grit sandpaper. Just to be sure, you know?Then I cleaned it up real good.Problem was, I still hadn’t decided on a finish. So I c...
