Short Shavings #6: The most important tool

09-02-2010 08:27 PM by Div | 9 comments »

I have some meaningful words posted on a large sign above my workbench. It describes the only tool one really needs to accomplish any project. I want to share it: “Nothing in the world can take theplace of persistence… Talent will not; nothing is more commonthan unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius isalmost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full ofeducated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” Calvin Coolidge

Hi everyone, The latest on the Ezee-Feed front is that a short video we’ve been working on for the past few months, has been completed. I’m pleased with the company that produced it for us, and if anyone is looking to have something similar created, I can highly recommend this outfit. Just PM me for their contact info. There is a discount link at the end, for those that are interested. Thanks for looking. Lee

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #21: Dry Fit!

09-02-2010 04:21 PM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I found another day off, so I immediately ran out into the shop before I could get distracted. I was able to finish the joinery on the base ends. As with everything else in life, the relative ease of the BeadLock Pro has disadvantages in repeatable accuracy. I don’t know how or why, but I do eight mortises and they only come out within 1/16” of each other. This has caused a 1/8” difference between the mortises, pretty much ruining my reveal on the spindles. I’ll f...

The Studio Furniture Movement#3

09-02-2010 03:16 PM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

My path to enlightenment appears to be rather random. LOL I am discovering the woodworkers path, and the sculptors path as well as architechs and others can be lumped into Art? Found and interview with Krenov. It was great, he was a true Lumberjock! Always called himself an amateur (sp?). A catagory he liked to be in. He talked about others who may have been more “well known” but differed from him. He may have enjoyed what they created but not their process in creating. Willi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #91: Quite An Adventure on the Horizon

09-02-2010 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Yesterday, as I was struggling with one of the warmest days here since coming to Nova Scotia, I received a thrilling phone call. It was from the Showcase Chair of the Northeastern Woodworkers Association. His name is Ken Evans and he called me regarding me teaching next March at the NWA’s annual showcase. I had mentioned that my friend, who is active in this large club, had approached me of the possibility of me going to Saratoga Springs in March to teach some classes on scroll saw...

Router bits #1: Paint or no paint

09-02-2010 01:12 PM by grosa | 9 comments »

Anyone here ever talk about painted router bits ? I have used many types of router bits over the years and bits without paint seem to last longer than the painted ones. I have unpainted bits that are 3 &4 yrs old, still in good shape. I get most of my bits through Magnate or custom made bits from Wood worker’s tool supply. They don’t paint there bits at all. I was told the paint acts as a blanket and dose not let the bit disperse heat as well, that makes the bit get dull quick...

A little advice

09-02-2010 11:58 AM by BigTiny | 16 comments »

Greetings all. Since I’ve been actively adding to my shop lately, cost has become an issue and has set me to thinking… Just how much money do we have tied up in our tool collections? I think many of you would be surprised at the total. One of our own had a fire in his shop recently and luckily it didn’t do too much damage to the tools, although the shop is in need of major repairs. Now to my point: if (heaven forbid) you had a fire that destroyed your shop, how ...

...But she’s got Legs!!Yesterday was a really good day!! My objective for the day, was to put some legs on this small table I’m building… Of course, I have no clue how to do that correctly, but nonetheless I proceeded… My vision was to have the legs splay out slightly, not only from side to side, but from front to back. First, I checked visually what angle looked appealing, and determined that a conservative 6° was in order… The number, shall be six…Began b...
