WoodBuzz #3: WoodBuzz is now open on Ning!

11-08-2010 02:43 AM by pashley | 0 comments »

I’ve finally opened WoodBuzz, a woodworking community website, that pays more attention to articles of information (how to market, getting good deals, pricing your work, etc), than being strictly community driven. It’s just getting up and running, so come on over, join, and contribute. I think you’ll like what you see. Just a note: all pictures and videos posted are moderated; they don’t go up unless I’ve seen them. Also, WoodBuzz is smartphone friendly,...

Learning the hard way (revisited)

11-08-2010 02:41 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I haven’t done much today. The only thing I did was to reglue the piece I cut off yesterday back on to the router table top. About 3:00 AM EST I realized that I cut off to much and didn’t leave enough material for the mitre guage slot. It didn’t turn out to bad but it irritates me that I didn’t think of this before I made the cut. Oh well. What’s more is that I stained my table saw surface with glue that bled though the news papaer that I had under my glue u...

iRobot (w/ pics)

11-08-2010 02:27 AM by davidroberts | 6 comments »

While I’m at it, I wanted to post a few pics of the robot my son helped build and the practice field yours truely built. My 17 year old high school brainiac son participated in a robot competition last weekend. He was responsible for the electronics, wiring, and programming the beast. It has a bunch of servo motors powered by batteries and controlled by a radio controller. It is one ugly robot, but the robot doesn’t know that. They finished construction about 9:00pm the nig...

How to connect a Shopvac to a Festool Domino or Dewalt Track Saw

11-08-2010 02:18 AM by Marty Backe | 9 comments »

I recently finished a quest to attach my existing Shopvac to my new Festool Domino and Dewalt Track Saw. Since I had so many problems accomplishing this, I thought I’d make a video that shows my solution, since no doubt I’m not the only person who’s had (or will have) the need to do this.

Stone Inlay - a tutorial for the "Birches" #1: Getting Started

11-08-2010 02:09 AM by swirlsandburls | 6 comments »

The raw Hickory blank was one I purchased a few years ago, which was wax-dipped and about 11” in dia. by 2” thick. It was completely dry when I started. I mounted the blank from what will be the front with a faceplate ring and 6 screws. I think I used a 100 mm ring. After truing up the blank, I cut the dovetail into the back for the chuck jaws to fit into. By the way, once I mount the piece into the chuck and start working on the front, it never leaves the chuck until the pi...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #8: Getting closer

11-08-2010 01:07 AM by yellowtruck75 | 4 comments »

Its been several weeks since I have posted an update to my Paduk Maloof rocker. Since my last post I completed and fitted all the back supports, glued up the rockers, & fitted the head rest. My last few steps that I have to complete is finalize the rockers (shaping and mounting) and do a few days of sanding. There are 2 mistakes that I also need to fix, 1 being that there is a hole that needs plugged from when I drilled the back support holes in the seat, and while routing the back sup...

Built-In Bed #1: Pleasing the Customer

11-07-2010 11:57 PM by Scott R. Turner | 6 comments »

I always enjoy reading project blogs here on LJ, so I’ve decided to attempt one myself. Hopefully some folks will find it enjoyable! I’ve built a few beds over the past years, the most recent being this one that my son uses: It’s solid maple and has been beat up a little over the years and acquired glow-in-the-dark stars, all of which adds to its character, and I don’t mind in the least. I like that the bed has been host to both my children and that they...

I’ve spent part of the day working in the shop making some pens for a craft sale my wife will be at in a couple of weeks. Hopefully she can sell a few.I still have about 6 or 8 more, that should give her enough.

Building My Work Shop #7: CL Wood & Tool Gloat!!

11-07-2010 11:19 PM by Crushgroovin | 6 comments »

As with all things in life plans for building a wood shop are subject to change at any moment. I have been longing for a few shop additions in the short term, a Router Table, a Clamp Rack, & some sort of Lumber Storage. The plan was to build them all until I ran into a screamer deal on CL last Thursday. The major item in the listing was a nice jet tablesaw which is liikely what most people thought was the bulk of the ad. But I read a couple line down and saw a Lumber cart for sale. Fur...

Duplicating a Nightstand #1: Duplicating a nightstand

11-07-2010 11:09 PM by ed220 | 0 comments »

A friend asked me a while back to duplicate a night stand that her dad had made for her along with a bedroom set back in 1951 in high school wood shop. I gave it a look and thought it would be fun.. Her Dad did a mighty fine job of using dado joinery. It’s going to be interesting to try to match up the staining. Finished the project with General Finishes Semi Gloss.. I think I got pretty close to the color thanks to my wife who has a good eye for these things.. I’m pretty h...
