YSMBF (Yet Some More Bird Feeders)

06-22-2010 07:18 AM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

I’ve been wanting to get some new, bigger, better bird feeders but I couldn’t find any I liked. When I say “liked” I mean not small, not cheaply made, and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Twenty, thirty bucks or more for some cheap a** plastic or metal or wood poorly constructed piece of junk? No thanks. So I decided to build my own. Well I always have built my own but I was looking to get off easy and not have to take the time to build them. I thought, that if I ...

Tool Cabinet #2: Respect to all cabinet builders...

01-07-2008 12:48 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 19 comments »

For all of you cabinet builders on this site, my hat is off to you! I never fully realized the work that is involved in making a cabinet and how even the smallest mistakes can compound so very quickly… Right before Christmas I posted this blog asking for input on plans for a tool cabinet. Well, I took all the advice I received and have been furiously building over the holidays. Here is where I stand—I have completed the actual “cabinet” portion of the project. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #788: Do As I Say, Not As I Do

08-13-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I never for a moment think that I have all the answers. In fact, I often think that the day I stop learning will be the day I take my last breath here on Earth. Sometimes learning something is an entirely new experience. We see something fresh and new and it is exciting to learn about it and expand our knowledge. We have a feeling of pride and accomplishment as we learn these new things, and it makes us feel great. Other times, we re-learn something that we knew in the past, but over ...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

02-21-2008 11:14 AM by Dorje | 18 comments »

I had some time in the evening to continue on my little caseā€¦ I was able to get the drawer lock joints cut on the four little drawers. Fortunately, I set this up the other day. Without instructions, it took me a little longer than it probably should have. Once you dial in the height for a good fit, it’s all in the fence adjustment. Pretty decent little machine joint, that’ll be a lot faster to perform the next time: Next up, I cut the grooves for the bottoms (on the ...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #4: Now I have a box

11-19-2011 04:14 PM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

So first I sanded up the bottom detail using a drum sander on my ancient drill press next I cut the dado for the bottom to set in. I don’t have a dado blade so I just make multiple passes on the table saw. After that is done, I move on to sand the inside of the box. Since it is nearly impossible to do after the box is together this is the perfect time to do it. Now it’s just a little glue and some tape. I have found that with boxes this small tape is more than enou...
