Lacewood Lock #2: Lock Center And Inlay

03-09-2010 09:44 PM by deeman | 2 comments »

Today I worked on the front lock face. I put a inlayed piece of bubinga for the key hole trim. This was my first try,just a simple circle. After a few practice pieces I worked on the project part. Turned out pretty good I think. I got the grain off a little. I then cut out the lock body and made the spring. The spring is a piece of hickory 1/16 thick 5/8 wide and 2 7/8 long

Wooden Hinges For Boxes - Installation

03-09-2010 09:33 PM by stefang | 12 comments »

For those of you who followed my last blog on making a wooden hinge, I have to apologize for being so late on this followup on how to install it into your box. I was going to use my grandson’s box as an example, but we haven’t done anything more on it yet. However, a box I have had sitting around for some time needed a new hinge because I didn’t like the one I originally installed, so I thought I would take the opportunity to finish the blog. Here are a couple of pics....

Grandkids In The Workshop

03-09-2010 03:59 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 40 comments »

A Gathering Place For The Grandkids The shop is becoming a regular gathering place for the grandkids when they visit. I always go through the emotions and thoughts of, “Not now – I have to get this project done.” But once again, I relent and tell the kids, “You know where the stuff is, get it out. And you can set up over there on that end of the bench.” I shouldn’t be working on Sunday anyways – right? The “stuff” includes the ham...

1953 ERA Craftsman Table Saw re-built

03-09-2010 03:48 PM by cbMerlin | 8 comments »

I recieved this 1950’s era Craftsman table (113.221611) saw from my Dad a while back. It was sitting out in his garage for years with a piece of plastic on top. I was so eager to get this project started, I didn’t think to take “before” pictures. As I was getting into it, I started to take a few shots:This is the cabinet after stripping and a coat of primer.This is a few parts in varying stage of re-finish.This one of the side panels, stripped, primed and six coats of ...

Wonderful - Man sues Ryobi and HD because he cut himself on the saw

03-09-2010 02:59 PM by David Craig | 94 comments »

Not sure who all heard the news for today, but a lawsuit was won against Ryobi for not incorporating blade stop technology on their saw. This guy apparently fed his hand through the tablesaw and Ryobi is to blame for not protecting him. I hope this gets overturned. I believe blade stop is a good thing to have available but there is a reason why I do not have a SawStop which has to do with cost. If this goes through, there are going to be a ton of lawsuits filed against many saw manufacturer w...

I was just looking up the H.O. Studley tool chest again and found Fine Woodworking's page on it with some images I had not seen, some additional history, and a range of sizes of free, downloadable wallpaper of a nice shot of the chest, which looks like this:

Garden Gate III #10: Crossbeam

03-09-2010 08:47 AM by newTim | 0 comments »

I’ve been finishing up project so I am a little late updating the blog, but the entries are going to come fast and furious now. And maybe I will once again secure the bottom spot on the most blogs list. So this gate is going to be attached to a steel tube frame and needs a crossbeam along the top. I could have cut this part several steps ago but it just seemed to work out this way. I learned awhile ago that it is easier to rip the beam to fit the dado just like cutting a tenon to fi...

Today was a good day

03-09-2010 08:40 AM by Jeison | 5 comments »

So last week I put a bunch of stuff up on ebay, cleaning out the closets, old computer parts, nothing major. Or so I thought! Ended earlier today and i was shocked when I logged in to check it, ended up making almost $150 off of stuff I would have been happy to get a tenth of that for! So just ordered some new router bits with my windfall from Grizzly and Rockler, and then this weekend gonna look for some deals at the flea market (also HF has their parking lot sale coming up soon IIRC) I...
