Outfitting the workshop #11: What NOT to do with the lathe!

73 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

This us the second stupid thing I did in the shop today and since the trend seems to be toward increasingly dangerous results I thought I would maybe leave the shop and find something safer to do ;-) for the rest of the day. It was one of those moments where that wee voice in your head says ”’re gonna regret this,don’t do it…” just microseconds before IT actually happens. If I had listened to the little voice I would have stopped the lathe, repositio...

74 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 14 comments »

It’s about that time here in sunny Arizona. Happens every May, and lasts till late September. My garage shop hit the 100 degree mark this afternoon while I was working on some trestle legs for a dining table.Definitely time to start working early mornings when it is ONLY 80-85 degrees.Cleaned up and took this picture before I decided to hide in the air conditioning. Please don’t say it is a dry heat. it is NOT dry heat when you’re sweating like a pig wrestling 8/4 l...

Cherry Nightstand #7: Drawers

81 days ago by Todd | 3 comments »

I was going to use dovetails or boxjoints for the drawers but I decided to go simple. After all I have cabinet drawers constructed with less integrity that have been abused for more than 20 years. I had some poplar that needed using so I glued up some panels to obtain the necessary widths. I cut them out and slotted them to accomodate a 1/4 ply bottom. I then drilled pocket holes on the outside of the front and back panels of the drawers as well as holes for mounting the drawer fr...

Cherry Nightstand #6: Carcass Construction

82 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

In this installment I’ll be covering the carcass construction which includes assembling the face frame, sides and base. I’m not covering the construction of the face frame because it’s a very simple face frame assembled with pocket screws and glue. I do want to mention the specifics of how I attached the face frame to the sides. I used Sommerfeld’s 3-Pc Tongue & Groove Cabinetmaking Set to make the attachment. Below is the resulting joint. Note that th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1312: Finishing The Banner Project

84 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a wonderful and beautiful day and it looks as though today will be the same.   I think that spring has FINALLY arrived in Nova Scotia.  I love the quiet of the early mornings.  As I crossed the road to go to the trash bin and bring it to the side of the road for pickup, I could hear the birds happily singing as well as the river rushing by. The sun was warm and the air was cool and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I know I live in an amazing place when even ta...

Projects #11: Boards galore- thoughts on production run quantities of work

90 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

There are the strips for the latest two end grain boards I’ve been working on. Craft show season is upon us again, and my wife and I are tooling up for a big push now that the weather is nice enough that I can get out in the shop without frostbite setting in. I’ve been cranking out a bunch of smaller boards, plus a few of what I consider average size… roughly 10×12x1.25” or so… I’ve done ‘enough’ simple boards now that it has ...
