Curved front hall table #1: The tapered legs

12-20-2014 04:07 AM by exelectrician | 11 comments »

After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...

My daughter Erin came out to the shop and scrolled me some Christmas ornaments for a charity event my Guild participates in each year.She is a natural-born artist, and I don’t have to tell you how much it means for her to come out there and join me in the shop every once in a while.Music playing, beautiful weather, & having great company in the shop equals a very nice morning.I am very blessed.

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

08-31-2014 01:54 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

Small Shop Adventures #1: Small shop adventures.

08-22-2014 08:28 PM by BrockF | 4 comments »

The construction of the new garage last fall gave me a clean slate for setting up my small shop. The lone survivor in terms of shop furniture from that leaky, damp mess was my workbench. It survived several months in public storage and the trip back and forth. The top is solid and heavy and I don’t like to waste. It reminded me of how far I have come in my wood working and how much more I still have to learn. I scrapped the base but kept the top, thinking about how best to ...

Wooden Spoon Material Experiment

08-13-2014 01:55 AM by bobkberg | 5 comments »

My wife loves her wooden spoons, but after many years, they warp and crack and eventually fall apart. So I started wondering what the best material to make a wooden spoon out of might be. I bought 10 small samples of hardwoods and cut them all to roughly the size that could serve as the bowl of a wooden spoon. So I have 10 pieces of wood roughly 5” long, 2 1/2” wide and 7/16” thick. I started with those and put them into a large stock pot with 4 gallons of water a...

Roubo Workbench #4: Ch3 - Crossed Up

07-11-2014 07:13 PM by Dave | 0 comments »

After the success tweaking the installation for the end vise I hoped the good karma would continue to the leg vise. Not so… It All Starts With A Small Bonk… I removed my chop from the clamps, removed the glue and jointed/planed to size. the final size was about a 2 3/8 thick – plenty. I determined the centerline of the chop and leg and clamped the chop directly to the leg. I transferred the hole locations to the chop. The it was off to the drill press. Simple. While at Marc Adam...

found wood

06-16-2014 04:31 AM by NaptownWood | 0 comments »

Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1331: Website Updated

06-03-2014 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are times when I feel that I am not accomplishing all I set out to do.  It seems that there are times when one project or another is not coming together quickly enough, and I feel that I could be doing more.  But then there are other times when I look at the new things that we are continually adding to our website and I feel a bit better about things. When the final tally is made, we see the site growing nearly every day and we are adding several new things per month, includin...
