Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

But better late than never, they are done, and well photographed by a friend. Read all about it over on my blog… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2015/9/22/prairie-sofa-and-love-seat-part-3 Thanks for reading!

Balanced Work Bench #2: building the leg vise

07-18-2013 03:38 AM by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

i have never made a leg vise before and i have no idea what to expect with the one i made. The basic concept came from Shop Notes. And i like the basic concept. However, i do NOT like the price of ACME Rod, ACME nuts or ACME ANYTHING. so i went with “off the shelf” 3/4” threaded rod from LOWES. I dont know if this will bite me in the butt or not. But just in case, i built the vice so i could change it out if i need to use a better threaded rod. The dimensions ...

Shop Saftey - Dust Masks #1: Why did I not wear one.

05-29-2015 02:56 PM by jerrells | 9 comments »

I, as a retired person, generally fall into woodworking, scroll saw, as my past time activity. YES, I know, or should have, that shop dust and wearing some type of masks is important. But they are hot, limit breathing and are a pain. Well as someone with ironical asthma I have now landed in ER and the hospital twice this year. At this point I am still not cleared to be back in the shop. Well, now I have done a lot of reading on dust masks and respirators. Your first line of defense is to l...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #38: New Mall to Sell my Scrollsaw items.

07-27-2012 12:42 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have had my scrollsaw items in a small shop for about a year. Done OK however not great. As I have posted I have considered other venues but till yesterday had not chosen one. Yesterday I made verbal commitment to take space in a “MALL” craft store. This location was a grocery store until converted into a craft mall. All kinds of product from old antiques to new hand made items. Based on the research I did this mall is very well traveled. I first found out about it from a fri...
