Taliesin Desk in Cherry #9: Breadboard Ends

01-03-2016 02:38 PM by JimYoung | 12 comments »

I’ve been pretty productive over my holiday break. I received a new 3/8” up cut router bit and collet. I tried finishing up the mortise on the breadboard ends on my router table, but was still getting a lot of vibration and weird sounds from my router. I tried slowing the speed down even more, but that didn’t help. I ended up going back to my plunge router base with guides to finish them up. I was concerned about using this setup, since I would be routing a pretty dee...

Woodworking Technologies: A Programmer's Perspective #1: Technology and Wood: My first thoughts of a new horizon.

06-21-2012 07:26 AM by pmcwood | 0 comments »

Our journey starts nearly nine months ago when I first started working for a woodworking tool dealership.Before that time I only had a small amount of experience in the construction industry dealing with nail guns, band saws, circular saws and the like. Soon the sheer spectrum of what all woodworking as a whole meant became apparent and remarkably interesting. Suddenly there was a plethora of amazing technologies not yet exposed to me in the environment of a sterile server room. An opened ...

Building an Arts and Crafts Writing Desk

12-20-2011 04:11 AM by dskill | 0 comments »

Several years ago I ran across an old book of Arts and Crafts style plans and copied the pages of the book containing the drawing (yes, just one drawing!) with dimensions and three paragraphs of instruction on how to build the desk. This past summer I finally purchased the rough quartersawn white oak and dimensioned it for the pieces of the project. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned (belatedly) from starting this project is that apparently even the casual hobbyist woodworker of ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #17: ScrollSaw Accessories ?????

10-22-2011 07:43 PM by jerrells | 7 comments »

So as Christmas is just around the corner the family has askled what TOOLS I want for Christmas. Well being a scrollsawer and loving to do smaller and smaller work I am looking for suggestions on new tool toys. To go with my scrollsaw I have a complete Dremel set up and that works well. As well I have a big router table, table saw and most all the hand tools. IT would seem to me that there would be a selection of small power tools for the scrollsawer. Like a mini-band saw, mini drill press a...

Kova в проекте понаписал чего-то по-испански))). Я ничего не понял, но по догадкам, вроде бы спрашивает как делал. Делал вот так: Думаю, довольно доходчиво и понятно. Удачи. Алексей.

this is the 4th year I have made Christmas tree ornaments, and given them to the elementry schools in my area. This year was one of the most gratifications I had ever recieved.

These are about 3” – 6” tall, blanks, and ready for the kids to paint them as they want. each year the kids get more and more greatful for them and write me cards from each...

Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...

Morris Chair #6: A call to arms.

02-06-2015 05:26 AM by Luddite | 3 comments »

4 Feb 2015 Thanks to comments and such I finally decided on my approach for making the chair arms. I’d originally had planned on the Stickley method of laminate and cut so as to keep the arm looking bent. Well seems I hit a wall here as my band saw is not up to the job and I was certainly handsaw impaired to make such a cut.I’d floated the idea of a cut and spline method and got some great feedback, thank lcwood. I plan on cutting the board for the arm twice. First an a...

Projects, the backstories #3: Open form in oak, day 2, oops day 1 (part deaux) and day 2

03-25-2014 08:41 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

I didn’t want the first entry to be too long, it was War and Peace just for day 1. So, here’s the rest of day 1 followed by day 2.It’s really just hollowing mostly…hollowing, hollowing, and more hollowing.I stopped the first entry at 9:06 p.m. at about 2 inches depth.9:14 p.m. It’s not brain surgery…a long handled, a study tool rest, wood hitting the cutter head, me hanging on the back of the handle. Down to 4 inches in 8 minutes. The Sovereign can r...
