Works in Progress #1: Humidor - and so it begins...

196 days ago by Jerry | 6 comments »

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #29: Rudder nonsense!

310 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

The partner and step line up nicely. I had a bit of a surprise when I discovered the mast was a bit thicker further up and would not fit through the partner. A bit of work with the block plane and all was good. There is a bit of reinforcing yet for the mast but it looks pretty good. I have the brace pieces cut, they just need to be painted and then mounted. I bored out the holes for the pintle bar. I ran into a bit of an obstacle in that I had not really factored in the bul...

Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

349 days ago by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

Big Time Projects

1613 days ago by Jay Neale III | 10 comments »

I have been contracted to supply a boutique somewhere in New Mexico with 36 pairs each of Red Heart and Cedar candle holders, with the promise of more orders to come before summer. Also a local T-Shirt shop has just ordered 75 tie dyed shirts—all purple because of the high school colors—and they want them before the end of the month. I’ve been busy building my assembly table and moving some things in my shop, but I’ll put that on hold to get these jobs out on tim...

Adirondack Love Seat

880 days ago by PatBrownfield | 0 comments »

I’m new to the web site and I guess I forget a few details about my first project. I found the plans in the American Woodworker Great Book of Woodworking Projects. I made the love seat out of construction grade western red cedar that I purchased at a local Lowes. I finished it with General Finishes Outdoor Oil. Thanks for the positive feedback. More projects in the works. I hope to post more really soon!
