Happy Anniversary. #1: Got a new tool!!! Of course.

1794 days ago by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 6 comments »

Sunday was my wife’s and my 29th anniversary. She got earrings and necklace and I received a Dremel 400 with a bunch of accessories. Lots of happiness around the Sawdustonmyshoulder house. This morning in the shop, I sharpened 5 – 1/2 inch 4 tooth bandsaw blades with my new Dremel tool. Worked like a charm. $175 worth of bandsaw blades saved from the trash. Take a look at this blog site about how to do this. I saw it several months ago but I didn’t have a Dremel. This ...

Setting up Workshop #2: Continuing the Workbench Stool

1801 days ago by Walt33 | 3 comments »

I began a stool to go along with the workbench several weeks ago and it has been coming along very slowly due to other things getting in the way and my limited time to work on it during the week. Over the past few weeks I have been marking out pieces for the stool, as well as having to stop working to go purchase this tool or that tool to allow me to progress further. Today I made a large leap in progress due to a friends help. I took the pieces that had already been cut and the piece that I ...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #9: The Grand Finale.

1804 days ago by JonH | 14 comments »

Remember the chunk of wood from inside your drawer? That works nicely for a handle since the grain of the wood is all consistent. If not, you can put anything in for a handle, a dowel, a screw, a nail, a pull from the hardware store, a hole, you name it, just get that drawer open somehow. That is up to you. Once all the pieces are glued up, just sand up the body of the drawer so it fits nicely in the body. Once that is good, apply your finish. Be careful not to put too much in the dra...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #7: Lets hollow out that drawer.

1804 days ago by JonH | 2 comments »

While the body of the Bandsaw Box is drying, you can work on the drawer. Cut ¼” to ½” off the front and back of the drawer. Make sure you label the pieces so they go back together properly. We will then cut out the piece left over in the middle to create the cavity for the drawer. This can be anything you want, but it basically creates the amount of storage space in your drawer. It could be square or curved, but with a bandsaw you could accomplish nearly anything for this task. Just mak...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #6: Put the Body of the Box back together.

1805 days ago by JonH | 4 comments »

Once you have cut the drawer out of the body, you can glue the box back together and attach the back of the box to the body. Make sure you clamp the body back together tight enough to hide the cut you made to create the drawer. If you have a complex drawer, you may have to glue the body back together first, then attach the back later. If you need to sand the inside of the body, you may want to get that done prior to putting the back on, it will be a lot more difficult with the back attach...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #5: Layout the drawers for easy cutting.

1806 days ago by JonH | 3 comments »

Draw the shape of the drawer on the body. Remember to think about the cut when you design your drawers. The idea is to make it easy to cut out the drawers in one continuous motion for each drawer. Since you are using a bandsaw, you aren’t able to avoid cutting through the sides of your project. In most cases, you can just glue the wood back together where you cut into the side and you will never notice. In some cases, you must cut into multiple sides of your box and glue the box bac...

Hal Taylor Rocking Chair #1: Week 1

1807 days ago by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 5 comments »

After having received several requests for a detailed blog of a rocking chair build I spoke with Hal Taylor and received his permission to do this. This chair is based on his first book and set of plans. He has a new book with updated plans which I am getting soon. This is not a full-time job for me so I will be posting one week at a time since I get to spend maybe an hour every other night on the chair. Week one sees the planing and cutting out of all the blanks. I purchase 40-50 bd...
