the never ending organinzing and improvements #2: I SEE IT BOARD. THE ORGANIZATION TOOL.

10-29-2015 02:17 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...

Holiday Gifts #1: Inspiration and Ideas

10-29-2015 12:28 PM by Sioranth | 2 comments »

I inadvertently have found myself in a position where there is an expectation of woodworking gifts for the holidays this year. I guess that’s what I get for posting all my little projects on Facebook where my family can see them. So, for my father I am going to be making a six-pack beer tote out of mahogany and quarter sawn sycamore. I’m hoping it looks as good as I envision it will when it’s finished. It’s going to have rare earth magnets for catching the bottle ca...

One of a kind, most unique tree on earth, Fish Slab cedar

08-22-2015 11:39 PM by EdgeGrainOnly | 2 comments »

I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...

Dynamike's Woodshop #2: Rocker Recliner

08-15-2015 03:56 PM by Dynamike | 15 comments »

So last Thursday I look over at the neighbors house and there’s a recliner upside down, sitting out in the trash. hmmmm I thought. I’ll bet there’s some springs and levers and such I could use off of that! After looking at it up close I said damn I’ll just take the whole thing. I had to clean all the dog hair, dust and webs off of it and…she cleaned up nicely. I tossed it up on the bench and stretched it out to see just how this thing works. It took about an hour but I came up with ...

Need help identifying this wood from this image. I want to discount some because of grain pattern, etc., and hope you’ll give me your expert opinions so I can. Thanks!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1586: Ten New patterns

07-07-2015 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Time always seems to move much too quickly, and lately more so than ever. I think because I have been keeping so busy the days just seem to bleed quickly into one another and before we know it, another week has passed. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the year. As those of you who read often know, I spent the last week or so working on some new scroll saw patterns for the site. At the time I was working on them it didn't seem like it was a lot, but seeing everything ...

Lean to shed

06-10-2015 12:34 AM by Moosesman | 4 comments »

I am making my own v shiplap siding for a little lean to shed I’m building. I wanted to do something besides just butting the boards together and thought this would look nice. This is just a little mock up to see how it will look. Any thoughts or words of wisdom would be great.

A coffee table made from an old fire pit

06-01-2015 12:56 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

View a video of this build here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16o0Ic0RPro We had an old fire pit where we had taken its top off and were using it on a different base in the backyard. The old base was taking up space in the shop, so I was going to throw it away, but then had the thought to make a table top for it. I used cedar and teak oil finish since I had planned on using the table outside, but we are actually using it inside now. The cedar was green so there was a good bit of warp...
