My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #94: After the Storm - Good Things on the Horizon

09-05-2010 02:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

We didn’t do too badly with the storm and all. Although there was a bit of rain and some wind, there was nothing frightening or horrible about it. It has been dry here this summer too, so the rain is probably welcome by most. A little after noon, we figured out that we needed milk and ventured out to the store because nothing is open in our area on Sunday and there is a holiday for Labor Day on Monday so things would be closed also. It wasn’t even raining when we went out, alth...

"Jigs" & "things"

09-05-2010 01:44 PM by canadianchips | 8 comments »

Is it just me ?I am contemplating quit reading LJ for awhile.(NOT REALLY)THIS IS THE REASON.EVERY DAY I READ AND SEE PROJECTS THAT ARE FANTASTIC. (In the 60’s it was “far out” 70’s was “cool” 80’s was “right on”, 90’s was “KEWL”)(I guess the 2010 word might be AWESOME) hard to keep up with political correct words.I then go out to my workshop and rather do the work that I should be doing I start to build the Jig that I saw...

cutting plexiglass

09-05-2010 11:56 AM by BigTiny | 25 comments »

Greetings all. I have a question. I’m building a table saw cross cut sled and intend using plexiglass as a top. What I need is some guidance in how to cut the stuff. I think it will work on the table saw, but not positive. If it can be done on the TS, what blade would be best?

Attaching Trophies to Wooden Bases

09-05-2010 08:28 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Guys it’s been a while since I’ve posted, sorry about that. Things have been busy at work and I haven’t had a lot of time. I do appreciate what a great resource this is, and all the help you’ve offered. Well, I’d like your ideas again. I’m working on wooden trophy bases, and I need to figure out how to attach silver trophy cups to those bases. Problem is, those trophy cups weren’t made with attachment in mind. Take a look, here.

Secret Soss: A simple Soss hinge jig #3: Steps to success

09-05-2010 07:48 AM by newTim | 0 comments »

Like most things it takes much longer to explain a process than it does to complete. Still, there are a lot of steps involved, and while you can sometimes change to order chances are there are no shortcuts, especially when precision is the final goal. Well enough philosophy, how ‘bout we just do woodworking. At this point the jig is maybe a half hour from being functional. Here I trimmed one side of each template to about 1 3/4” from the centerline of the mortise. You may w...

Early Anniversary gift

09-05-2010 05:52 AM by Rustic | 20 comments »

Well my loving wife has gone and done it again…She has given me the best anniversary gift a woodworker could hope for, a intro to woodcarving class. It starts next Wed. at Woodcraft. The class is 4 hours long. I am totally geeked about it. I am going to have a blast. I just know it. I have a source for my carving tools and a source for my sharpening system until I can afford the more powerful sharpening and honing system. This month on the 23rd is our 10th anniversary. Now I just need t...

Who Cares ?

09-05-2010 05:04 AM by Doug Scott | 8 comments »

Whats going on in a selfemployed guys life that spends most of the day eather working in the shop or for the shop, I couln’t tell you how many people ask how to get started in their own business, what is it that everyone has a misconception of being selfemployed, It is NOT a 9:00 to 5:00 job. Everyone that asked me about it, I just ask them if they would follow around for a week or more they might change their mind about it. A few years ago I had a young guy asking to see my portfolo. a...

Extremely Average #243: Gappy the Dado Jig

09-05-2010 04:54 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, I busted out an old friend, the Dado Jig. I created him way back in the first couple of months I was doing woodworking. He didn’t have a name until today. I also received a very nice comment from the gentleman who commissioned Henry the tiny walnut box. It was a good day. Brian
