My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1365: New Ornaments Cut

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was busy from dawn to dusk – and beyond! I am thrilled to say that the ornaments that I drew up over the weekend were accepted for Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts holiday issue of the magazine. I am really excited about this, because I haven't done much work with them and I hope to become a regular contributor. Last year I had one of my candle trays in that publication, and I have been trying to remind myself to submit to them regularly, but I often let the time sli...

Destructive Testing my Homemade Liquid Hide Glue (cold hide glue)

3 days ago by stefang | 22 comments »

I glued up these fir strips a couple of days ago for destructive testing of my homemade liquid hide glue. For those that don’t know, this glue stays in liquid form when cold and it is also used cold. It takes a lot longer than most glues to set and dry and it has to be clamped or in the case of veneers, pressed, but it can be a great option when you need a long open time and you are not in a big hurry. This product is hot hide glue with salt added. The recipe is in my last blog here. Th...

Mesquite Tree #5: Final Destination, The Mesquite Is Now Home

3 days ago by Blackie_ | 11 comments »

Ok to continue my backyard Mesquite tree adventure, the cut and dried Mesquite slabs are now at home, picked up this morning, Had a set back in the ordeal though, once I dropped them off roughly 3 months ago the owner made sure that I understood if any metal in the wood destroyed blades that I would be responsible and I acknowledged and understood, a week or two later after dropping the logs off, I received a call letting me know the wood was ready that they had been cut and ready for pickup ...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #34: A CL PC Posting & an afternoon drive

3 days ago by DIYaholic | 17 comments »

With the addition of my Grizzly G0458 18” Open End Drum Sander….My MAJOR tool/machine purchases are pretty much complete. Although a CNC Router would be nice!!! That means I am actually building projects and not just “shop projects”!!! However, that does not mean purchases are a thing of the past….One must leave themselves open to future upgrades, shop fixture procurement, lumber and the incidentals.I am also on the look out for redundant/duplicate tools, t...

New Shop building! #6: They cheaped out on wiring connectors!

3 days ago by JoeinGa | 14 comments »

Got the electrical all hooked up and turned on. Everything seemed to be working fine till last Saturday. Plugged in my mitersaw and when I hit the switch, the circuit went dead. Checked the circuit breaker box, fully expecting to find one had tripped. Nope. All switches were “On”. Started to try a different outlet to be sure the saw was OK and I realized that several other things were off, but not the whole shop. So I crawled under the shop where the electrical wires connecting...

Easy Build Workshop Stool.

3 days ago by David White | 5 comments »

NOTE: A PDF version of this post and the Sketchup model are available in the downloads section of my blog. If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....

Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

3 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #2: Finishing details

3 days ago by Brad | 0 comments »

Spicing up your buildThe chest is pretty plain Jane as far as designs go. To spice it up, I used a few techniques that others around the Net have turned to. Bead details break up monolithic panels. To make the fall-front door stand out, I used my 3/8” side-bead plane to put a bead on the panels adjacent to it. The chest’s back panel also got the beading treatment. It consists of three panels joined via tongue and groove joints. The bead detail helps disguise uneven edge joints. ...

A Strategy for Woodworking #11: Congratulations

3 days ago by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

Think about how you look at others’ work. You don’t look for every mistake. You look at the scope of the project, the effort required. You consider the time spent on design. You see the form, the choice of wood and think about the time taken to mill the lumber. The hours spent on joining pieces together and the detail in the joinery and the weeks spent on shaping and sanding and how the hardware is hung. You step back and look at the whole piece and you know in your heart how much...
