Trying my big hairy hands at Silversmithing Work, first photos of my 4th project

05-01-2008 09:41 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

I think it is really important to constantly try to learn new things. Could just be my ADHD. But, I’m too old for medications, so I take on new things to learn to keep my mind freed-up from boredom. I just don’t like doing anything the same, more than once, or twice. And, I’ve been trying to find ways to make a niche for myself in the vast internet woodworking world. To that end, I try unique crafts, and do cross-discipline, mixed-media work, in the hopes that my work...

Wood collection box - how to

05-01-2008 08:40 PM by GaryK | 35 comments »

To see the finished project go here: Here is the sample piece to test the concept. I started with wood planed down to 3/8”, cut to width and left a little long for trimming.I used a 1/2” 45 degree router bit to make the grooves. They are spaces 1/2” apart and 1/4” deep, starting 1/2” from the edge. The width of your wood matters. 1/2” increments works great...To enclose and make the sides a full 1/2” I planed some 1/8” pieces...This is...

Kitchen Remodel #4: Still No Table saw!!

05-01-2008 06:47 PM by SteveV | 4 comments »

Well, this project has been on hold until my new Grizzly G0651 arrives. Grizzly told me twice, once before I ordered and once after I ordered, that the new saws were due into their warehouse around May 9th. So, I decided to trust them even know I heard rumors on the Internet that others were told June. I ordered the saw and put this project on hold. I decided to send them an email the other day since the May 9th date was fast approaching. I received an email back within an hour saying ...

A new shop in the making #1: The planning stages

05-01-2008 05:51 PM by Bob #2 | 21 comments »

I finally got up the strength to give sketchup a try this week. It has to be one of the most miserable programs I have ever tried to learn. There is too much information, there is too little information and almost every step involves going out somewhere over the internet to gather up the basics. Suffice it to say that the learning curve, at least for me, is daunting. Here’s what I have learned so far: I wanted a sketch to show me the approximate positioning of this shed relatve...

Looking for input/opinions on Plyboo

05-01-2008 03:19 PM by StraightEdge | 7 comments »

Yes, Plyboo! Recent article in local paper raised an eyebrow ;-) From the Richmond Times-Dispatch “ECO Supple Center, a Richmond (VA)-area company selling environmentally friendly and sustainable building materials, sells Plyboo, a bamboo plywood that’s used for interiors, desktops, furniture and cabinets. The company’s Web site shows about seven different stalk or grain patterns of bamboo plywood, in colors ranging from a light tan or dark brown.” Maybe what ...

Dovetail Box #15: Gluing Up the Lid

05-01-2008 11:01 AM by Eric | 5 comments »

The moment of truth. The point of no return. The bridge beyond despair. Okay, I made that last one up. Time to glue up the lid. I felt like a surgeon preparing for a big operation. First, I did about three dry runs to practice the glue-up, assembly and “cord clamping”. Finally, it was time. I laid out all of my equipment in the order in which I’d need it: glue, spreader (the innards of a foam brush), two squares for the opposite corners, parachute cord and a pencil for ti...

The Router Table Saga #4: Progress on the sub surface infrastructure

05-01-2008 05:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 0 comments »

Well I’ve finished cutting the rabbets and halflaps for the framework for the table top and for the upper part of the legs. I’m learning a lot about how to increase the accuracy and precision of my joints as I become more familiar with my router. The jig is working really well and I’ve got a lot more confidence in my ability to build accurate jigs. This is a shot of the final leg joint after its cut. I had to adjust my joints after deciding not to use an 10 degree ...
