SPOON CARVING #3: draw and saw, y'all

07-14-2011 10:00 PM by Spoontaneous | 13 comments »

For any of you that have not settled on your design yet, don’t worry. I am just going to address this part of the preparation stage since I have the time. This whole collaboration is set up to be flexible around everyone’s schedule and timetable. The information will be here when you are ready for it. Most of the time, I just end up drawing a design directly onto the wood. I do this out of poor planning and being what some folks might call lazy. The better way is definitely to draw your de...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #4: A sneak peak at the top layout... maple and walnut in love!!

07-11-2011 05:15 AM by RS Woodworks | 6 comments »

Not only do I love maple and walnut, but I think they love each other too. They look so damn good together… they work well together, and they compliment each other beautifully. What more could a couple ask for? Well tonight I managed a wee bit of shop time. Between my 4 hours of sleep last night, being up at 4:15 am, and dealing with a two year old and a four year old that don’t play nearly as nice together as maple and walnut do, it wasn’t much shop time. But it was enou...

52 Weeks #21: A day late…

05-31-2011 02:52 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

and not a lot to show for it. I have been spending the past couple of weeks practicing with my scroll saw, since I hate to do nothing I decided to work on a few signs and cut the letters out with the saw. This has given me a great opportunity to experiment with different blades and also prompted me to work on a dust collection concept for my saw. I finished the first sign this morning. I have had this saying hanging in my shop for a bit on a piece of paper; thought it would make a good...

Noob and now recovering from surgery

05-05-2011 02:25 AM by SSMDad | 4 comments »

I’m a relative newcomer to woodworking having really only had the opportunity to experience it when I was in high school “shop” class. I remember using the radial arm saw, bandsaw, stationary sander, and especially the lathe which I haven’t purchased yet but would love to have one day. Yesterday I had to have surgery to repair a torn miniscus in my left knee so all my projects now are just in my head. Today was also my wife’s birthday but I haven’t been ...

Workshop #1: Tool Gloat

03-04-2011 07:20 AM by Luke | 8 comments »

Super jazzed, been searching for a bench top drill press and 14” bandsaw, and the local market had nothing, and every time I called on craigslist it was beat out by someone before me… But not today! I picked up a Delta 16 1/2” floor drill press, mortise attachment and a 14” Band saw with 2 blades and a delta mobile shop stand for the band saw all for $200… and they all work great!

New Band saw

02-21-2011 02:18 PM by jat | 2 comments »

Well, I finally pulled the trigger and at the Hartville Hardware tool sale, ordered the Powermatic 14” with riser block. I looked at everything and read as much as I could. Thanks to all of you for the input. I decided on the Powermatic rather than the Grizzly mostly because of service, plus I got a pretty good deal ($849), delivered. We have an authorized dealer only 10 miles from me, which really facilitates any kind of service. Should be delivered this week (along with the Jet d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #252: Getting that Last Set of Instructions Done

02-10-2011 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have one goal today. I need to get those instructions finished for the Bee Candle Tray written and pack up that and a project by my partner to be shipped out tomorrow. Period. It is just one of those things where every time I begin to work on it, something of a bit more importance comes up and it keeps getting put on the back burner. But enough is enough and I need to get it done and out of here. It isn’t as if it is difficult to do it, but it is a little more involved than j...

Restoring a Walker Turner BN730 Band Saw #2: progress

02-10-2011 05:35 AM by Camper | 10 comments »

I figured I would give you guys some updates. Things are coming together pretty well. After disassembly and cleaning I tackled the repairs to the wheel covers with some fiber mesh reinforced with a wire grid and JB weld. The wheels had some missing sections where either the PO cut parts out or the blade had taken a slice out of them. For example: here is the mesh I used here it is on the wheel cover and the repair after a few coats of JB weld and sanding. The wire grid all...
