Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #2: Let the creativity flow.

05-11-2009 08:47 PM by JonH | 0 comments »

Open up your creative mind and let it flow! The easiest design for a bandsaw box is one that allows for the fewest cuts. If you could make one continuous cut around the box, that would be great, but do what your design calls for. If you want square corners, you may need to use another tool like a miter saw to trim the ends of the block. For this example, I chose a heart shaped design. Draw the outline of the box on the front of the block.

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #1: Lets Get Started

05-11-2009 08:36 PM by JonH | 2 comments »

For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage. The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating ...

Carved Backyard Bear #2: The Chickadees' have moved on.

05-11-2009 07:14 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 5 comments »

We’ve been watching the Bear for over a week now, & the little birds haven’t shown up. I think the bear didn’t meet the proper specifications, or the bird building code. I also believe the Robins, & Squirrels may have scared them away. It’s sitting too much out in the open, kind of low to the ground. I’ve heard of birds starting a nest, & leaving it for a different location.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You ca...

The One Where Bosley Gets New Cabinet Doors...

05-11-2009 07:02 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

My little shop got a workout this weekend when gal pals Kathy, Cathy and Tracy spent Saturday building new cabinet doors. “The Angels,” as they’re known to workout pals, picked up irons of the domestic variety to apply preglued birch edgebanding to simple plywood doors for a client of Kathy’s. I think Charlie would have approved. Sabrina, Jill and Kelly [originally posted at]

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #5: It was the day.

05-11-2009 05:07 PM by Junji | 7 comments »

So it was the 3rd birthday of my daughter today, actually it past a few minutes now… The bed was done a while ago, and she has been sleeping there, but I just thought it would be a good idea to take some shots on her birthday sleeping there. From woodworking There has been no problem with the bed, and the cracking just stopped after I put this bed in the bedroom. There is nothing special about this photo, but for me, this is one of the biggest reason to be here in the world.

The Workbench #3: Living with the top

05-11-2009 04:22 PM by Wayne Precht | 2 comments »

I needed to get moving on the end table project and deliver the 3 that I have under commission, so the I have been working on the workbench not working on it. I did install a plane stop and that’s been real handy. I know I need a few photos at this point. Overall, it’s a little tight at only 56” long, but I like the 24” width, everything is in reach as opposed to my old one which is more like 30” wide. The end tables are only 24” tall, so there is room f...

How many is to many Shopsmiths?

05-11-2009 07:21 AM by reible | 13 comments »

Way back when I use to look in the back of the popular mechanics at the ad’s for the shopsmith and something compelled me want one, even as a kid. Maybe it was from playing with erector sets and the like but the idea of have a machine I could make into other machines fascinated me. Life seem far less then fair when they stopped making the shopsmith, after all I had never had a chance to buy one… sure we had a shop in the basement but after leaving home I only had a few hand to...
