Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #2: Phase 2

04-28-2012 08:27 PM by TZH | 15 comments »

I’d like to thank you, junipercanyon , for your advice on chain sharpening for ripping. Man, what a difference. I figured since you advised somewhere between 0 and 10 degrees I’d split the difference and go with 5 degrees. Slabbed all three in less time than it took me to do the first cut in Phase 1 of this project. This is some really fantastic wood I’m working with, and I can only hope to be able to score more of it in the future. Step 1: Scribe the lines:I used a laser...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #25: Additional Tools to go with a ScrollSaw

04-27-2012 11:28 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

As I continue my scrollsaw woodworking I am getting interested in a lot of ideas. Most of those ideas would be better served with additional tools other than a scrollsaw. Now I have a reasonable good table saw, a very good router, and a Dremel tool assortment that includes a router table, drill press and other accessories. There seem to be times when I am looking for a tool to do good percision work on a small scale. It seems that the router tabloe is one of the areas where I wish I had a ...

Hey guys, thanks for all of your comments! They are truly inspiring and kind. This entire project is taking much longer than anticipated. But what the heck, I’m only one man afterall. If you could, please take a look at my progress pictures posted below and feel free to offer any suggestions / criticisms that come to mind. This is one way that I (we all) improve. Your Input is Valuable to Me. I want this workshop to be as close to the “ultimate setup” as it can get. But finally, keep in mi...

Searching for time in the shop

04-21-2012 08:07 PM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Wooden pens #1: Wooden pens # 1

04-18-2012 03:10 PM by rodman40 | 3 comments »

http://s1266.photobucket.com/albums/jj526/Rodman4071/Wooden%20Pens/ Here are some pics of pens I’ve turned lately and more to come. I find pen turning enjoyable and I can make money if only I would start doing it. I’m turning these pens on two different lathes, one a Sears 12 inch (which is very noisy and the other a Central Machinery 8 by 12 with virable speed and a quiet and sweet turning lathe, both of these lathes were given to me by my cool brother Julio in Georgia, my tha...

Jewelry Cabinet #4: Final pieces, assembly and finish.

04-13-2012 04:06 AM by Devin | 4 comments »

Well, about 330 days ago I wrote something about being finished this piece in another 4 weeks. That didn’t happen, but in my defence I did get other pieces done in that time, I just kept getting pulled away from this jewelry cabinet. The work left on this piece was not big, but very finicky and detailed, which is likely why I kept finding it hard to get traction. I made the three drawers for the bottom section before moving onto the more intricate boxes that sit on the cabinet. ...
