Toy Chest Creations - A learning experience #1: The Design and initial learning experiences

10-22-2009 04:07 PM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

So. My stepdaughter asked me if I could build a toy chest for my grandson. “Sure!” I said, never having built anything of this type before. She gave me rough dimensions of what she wanted, and I worked on a design. After some time, I came up with what you see below. I wanted clean lines and an open design, rather than panelled. The Materials I’ve gone with a redwood frame and 1/2” maple plywood for the panels. The Build So. I get the wood, cut...

The Woodworkingshow in DFW opens tomorrow.

10-22-2009 03:14 PM by Rick Boyett | 5 comments »

Tomorrow the Woodworking Show will open over at the Big Town Exhibition Hall in Mesquite, TX. Since I have the day off, I’m going to spend most of it there. I plan on doing a little write up on it with photos (if they let me take my camera in there). One of the things I really like about the Woodworking Shows are the classes they give. I’m looking forward to seeing the one hour “Hand Tool Rodeo” class where they’ll be going the use and maintenance of the di...

Award Winning Photo

10-22-2009 03:00 PM by stefang | 18 comments »

This picture of an Iberion wolf was taken by Jose Luis Rodriguez and has won an award for nature photograph of the year. The Wolf is spectacular, but I also love the gate he is jumping over.I hope you do too. Part of the gate got cropped so if you want to see the whole picture just click on the blue link below the picture. It’s worth the effort to see the complete gate. Enjoy

Delta DW735 Planer

I know this isn’t the best deal some of you lumberjocks have gotten on this planer but I’m happy with it. Oh and I went to Costco to buy a shed for our trashcans and I found this and had to buy it. Bothus

Tablesaw Workstation #6: Drawers completed and installed

10-22-2009 01:51 AM by JohninSD | 4 comments »

A little more progress – finished assembling the drawers yesterday and installed them today. I used full extension drawer slides and came up with the process as I went along. I installed the bottom drawer first, then added the false front, which is taller than the actual drawer front. The false front is 7” and the drawer fronts, backs and sides are 5 5/16”. The bottom drawer false front was installed so it would overlap the case by 1/4” at the bottom and the drawer sli...

10-21-2009 11:26 PM by Cato | 10 comments »

Plus being on this forum really has alerted me to the issue of air quality in the shop.Already cooler temps have begun, and after reading and researching on DC units I decided it was time. Actually things are working out as planned in a way, because I built a storage shed to gain a little more room to expand my shop and equipment area. So with t...

Spindles #1: Each day brings new delights

10-21-2009 08:19 PM by Lisa Chan | 3 comments »

I’m glad that my last rainy day terror didn’t dissuade me from my efforts. Thanks everyone for the upbeat words and encouragement… it actually made a big difference when I got out there again. This weekend I went to Rockler and saw this great deal on Bocote turning blanks. Picked up three 1×1x12 for $1/pc. BTW… has anyone else noticed that Bocote smells like pickles when worked?! WEIRD! After turning two spindles, I decided that I was absolutely in love with th...
