Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

2 days ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Apartment Projects #22: The "Greatest" Picture Frame

6 days ago by littlecope | 20 comments »

Debbie and I love to rummage around at the backs of Department Stores (where they keep all the kitschy stuff) and search for Prints and Pictures to decorate our walls…We’re particularly fond of Photos, or artful representations, of the Icons of our generation… For example, we found this one waiting for us at a Target Store in Manchester… There are few alive who don’t recognize those four young men! Another that came home with us a little later was a Young M...

Making Waves in Wood

10 days ago by Dave | 0 comments »

I started my next project which is to be a gift for a friend that recently had a baby. They are into sailing so I wanted to make something that represented the water. I had some lyptus in my wood rack that I enjoy using – density of oak with color of cherry – with cool curly grain. I decided to use a stringing technique I saw on LumberJocks to make “waves”. One of the pieces I had had some sap wood that when I was evaluating made me think of the sky. So I decided it would be a nice cha...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

16 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

Better on the Bandsaw

17 days ago by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I’ll be the first to admit I bought cheap power tools, so any complaints are just brought on by my financial limitations. That said, I used to have unhappy experiences cutting anything on my bandsaw. It just always cut in the wrong direction. Lately though, I must have either adjusted something just right, or gotten better in my technique using the saw because it’s been working pretty well for me. I’ve been cutting out the parts for a whirligig and I must say it’...

Workshop #29: New Bandsaw Stand

28 days ago by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I bought my old Craftsman bandsaw off of Craigslist a sometime ago and it came with a metal stand with some nice retractable wheels. You see it here in an old shop picture. It has done a great job but I was constantly tightening the screws holding it on the stand and when I moved it into place next to my new lathe I soon was tripping over the splayed legs or killing my ankle on the wheel locks. So I finally took some time to get a new stand built for it. the best part is that I...

Just for Fun... #84: Square Wood from Round Branches...

30 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

This has been a perplexing enigma to me for many years! The old-timers would just split it (roughly square) and then square it up with progressively finer Tools… And that works very well, but there’s a lot of time spent doing it!I’ve had a Bandsaw now for over a year, and it’s supposed to have this capability all of its own… With the right kind of set-up…So, in the back of my mind, I’ve been pondering what kind of Sled was needed to do this… ...

Buying Your Last Tool First

36 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 5 comments »

Buying Your Last Tool First I acquired my first shop space around 2 years ago. Once I moved into my shop, I began my quest to fill the shop with awesome power tools. This post will discuss the overarching rule I follow when buying my power tools, and some examples of tools I have purchased. My thought process about buying powertools is this: Buy your last tool first!!! What I mean by that is make your first tablesaw, bandsaw, router, jointer, etc the one that you want to be using when y...
