Router Table #3: Good thing I'm not getting paid for this

2236 days ago by shaun | 11 comments »

cause I started it about 3 months ago and it’s still a work in progress. But at least I’ve got all the drawers in it now. The last one was for router bit storage. Initially I planned on making this two drawers, but then I noticed what Sawdustroad was doing with his table and came up with this idea. Special note – Thanks for the idea Sawdust! It would be much better if it had full extension drawer slides on it but I went with what I had for now. I’l...

New Woodshop Construction #5: Custom Collector Controller

2236 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 12 comments »

If you read my last post you might recall how I decided to purchase an X10 “Powerflash Interface” to test out as a controller for my dust collector. My skepticism about how the unit worked turned out to be well-founded. The Powerflash device sends an X10 “on” signal when 6-18VDC is applied to the contacts—but once the voltage is removed, the unit immediately sends an “off” signal. What I was looking for was a way to use a single momentary switch to to...

My Cabinet Maker's Mallet #2: The first two glue ups and finished shaping the handle

2236 days ago by sIKE | 4 comments »

I made some good progress today working on the mallet. I got the first glue up done and the dado for the handle ran through.After the dado was cut in, I then proceeded to the second glue up.Between the glue ups I started working on the handle again. I used the handle last night to test my new Auriou rasp for the 29ths reviewathon. It did a great job, though learning how to use the rasp I did leave some deep teeth marks in the handle. So out came my 3M 80 grit sandpaper, and I spent the better...

Wood Shows #3: Canadian Home Workshop Show (2)

2236 days ago by MsDebbieP | 21 comments »

Saturday, March 1, 2008 Today, Rick and I went to the Canadian Home Workshop Show in Toronto. When we first arrived we were allowed to go in early because I had the Awards Winners poster to be put on display at the Steel City Tool Works booth. Next, we made our way to the Master’s Workshop where I found Ryan Servill preparing for his day. Ryan, over the duration of the show was building a duplicate to this cabinet. The quote from the Show Magazine says, ” Watc...

Pen Turners' Swap #3: One small step for pen turners...

2236 days ago by itsme_timd | 17 comments »

The box is on the move again! A short trip this time from Karson to FrankA. Frank received the box yesterday but hasn’t had a chance to go through it – some story about -5 degrees and a dead oil burner. We’ll work with him some on getting his priorities in order before the next trade… :-) The box is ‘chilling’ in New York right now, here’s where we’ve been so far: Stay tuned as the drama unfolds and we answer gripping questions like...

Dovetail Box #10: Next Obstacle: The Lid

2236 days ago by Eric | 2 comments »

NOTE: As is my custom, my list of newbie questions are at the end of this post. So a week or two ago I wrote about my plans for the box lid. In short, it was going to have mitered edges with a thin strip of the lighter-colored sapwood (would you call it an inlay?) in between the mitered edges and the center piece. Today I took advantage of the Saturday down time to try to make it happen. A few days ago, I resawed a small block of wood 1/2” thick and ripped it into four pieces each...

Ms Debbie P's 2008 Shop Tour and Inspection #2: Leap Day Visit to the shop of HansonDVM

2237 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 22 comments »

That’s right it’s Leap Day, that anxiously awaited holiday which arrive but once each four years. With the formalities aside, it’s on to the shop inspection of Joe Hanson, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Lumberjock. I’m sure some cleaning up was done it anticipation of our visit, but this shop is surgically clean. And organized like a tray of instruments. So much better than the usual “Where the heck did I lay that (insert name of missing tool)...

Woodworking/Pottery Studio #1: Shop Update: 02/29/08

2237 days ago by Stacey | 2 comments »

Hi everyone,I’m posting an update to my shop progress. I now have moved all my equipment and tools in (they aren’t setup yet though) and have almost completed all the interior electrical work. I still have to run a trench from the main house to the shop and run a power line which I hope to do this weekend. I have about half the siding up and will hopefully get to work on the rest next week. A 9’x10’ corner of the shop will be used for my wife’s pottery studio...
