Mikros Kosmos #1: And it begins.

06-30-2010 05:12 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

Okay all. Time for something a little bit different. This story has a preface: When I was wee, I kept to myself. I was not particularly interested in playing with other children, though I did have some friends. I had a series of autoimmune disorders that kept me occupied (and often still do). I was allowed to have any books I wanted. While I did my fair share of reading of young adult literature (Nancy Drew!) my favourite thing – and thing I asked for most – were things abou...

Hello All, Time Travel and Butterflies – Extremely Average My latest blog post, full of silliness. I realized that I could thickness plane my bit of walnut with my router table, much more easily than with the jig I built to plane it. Brian

My maple coffee table #2: Design change, Thanks for the help!

06-29-2010 11:16 PM by DrewM | 5 comments »

I made a few small changes to the design and I very happy with the results. I made the aprons smaller with a more gentle curve that goes all the way into the legs. The legs still have a straight taper on them as i couldn’t find a way to continue the curve without it looking awkward. Thanks again for your opinions and here is a picture of my “final” draft. Here is the previous version Next step is going lumber shopping. I want to try and find some tiger maple fo...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

06-29-2010 08:39 PM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...

What Do You Use to Sharpen With

06-29-2010 07:37 PM by velo_tom | 15 comments »

Using Oil Stones Again, Water Stones Now Stowed Away Ollie gave an excellent review of Norton Water Stones and I posted most of the comments below at that review. I think perhaps it was a bit out of place there and offer my apologies to Ollie. I just wanted to present some of my experiences with water stones out in public in case there are others out there that are getting a bit disillusioned with using them. I’ll preface this with, “the vast majority of woodworkers will disagree with...

CarveWright machine and outdoor sign

06-29-2010 12:38 PM by Don Butler | 12 comments »

When I first bought my CarveWright and posted about it on another woodworking forum I got quite a few disparaging remarks. Of course most of those messages came from folks who had no personal knowledge about the machine. They based their comments on posts they had read. I think the low opinions were sparked up by owners who found the learning curve too steep and long or they saw the machine as too complicated. Well, it is complicated. It’s a CNC computer operating inside a small cabi...
