Merry Christmas folks. Just wanted to share a tip that I learned the hard way. I know many LJs own the Grizzly G0555 band saw and since many boast riser blocks, most of what follows probably seems very elementary :) But for slow ones like me, I thought I might share an experience and hopefully reduce another’s frustration somewhere down the road. Last August I was gifted with the funds to purchase the aforementioned saw by my brother who wanted to give a thank you gift for sharing re...

InspirationMy daughter wanted a chest for her American girl doll for Christmas. My wife had her circle the mdf, Chinese boxes in the catalogue. My wife knew what she was doing because we’ll have none of that crap around here. Looks like it’s time to make that first box. Design and MaterialsI showed my daughter some boxes from Doug Stowe’s book and picked a couple. I had some 4/4 curly maple on hand and my sisters boy friend had dropped of chunks of spalted maple firew...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Trials and Tribulations #3: I Might Need Intervention

12-20-2011 06:18 PM by DamnYankee | 6 comments »

HELP – I think I’m addicted to bandsaw reindeer! Luckily its the season for reindeer…. I recently purchased an old Buffalo 14” bandsaw that I’ve refurbished (this is my first BS). And as a means to improve my BS skills (pun intended?) I thought I’d give the reindeer thing a try. Now I find myself playing with the pattern to make tall reindeet, short reindeer, fat ones and skinny ones. If I keep this up I’ll have more reindeer than Santa. I...

The Maloof Library Series #10: Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table project - Pixar meets woodworking

12-19-2011 03:00 AM by ScottMorrison | 10 comments »

This is a small sample of my new woodworking project video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table.” Templates and video available for pre-order at finewoodworker.com. It is a totally new, and never before seen, type of video project (and pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself). Think Pixar meets woodworking. Completely 3D and presented with amazing details and animation that leave no room for error in your project. Everyone who has built one of my chairs (or any cha...

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...
