Twins! #5: I've done a lot. With Photos!

03-18-2012 07:21 AM by Andy123 | 8 comments »

Well… Where to start? Well I haven’t posted at all about the crib, because this is the first time I could feel like I could. There was a lot of complications with the pregnancy. My wife had to have enutero surgery on her placenta before the girls were born. And they were born pretty early. The girls are still in the NICU, but doing great! The doctors could not be happier about their progress. Their names are Emma and Lily. On my last blog, I finished the the tenons. Then I mov...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #4: How Small Can You Go?

03-16-2012 02:27 AM by pastorglen | 3 comments »

So I had some extra time on my hands… and I wondered, just how small can you go with this rising dovetail mystery mallet? So I pulled out a piece of 3/4” oak that was sitting around, cut it in half, and started laying out the cuts for a very thin “mallet.” I used a blue pen, which is part of the dark line you see along the joints. (They actually are very tight—tighter than I expected.) I didn’t take a lot of time to in laying it out, and my entire tim...

Marking Gauge #1: Getting started

03-13-2012 06:03 PM by Chuck | 1 comment »

While sorting through the free wood I picked up last week I had the idea to make marking gauge and set a few pieces of walnut aside for it. I cut out the marking gauge with the band saw and then planed the faces smooth. I used a drill and cleared most the waste before chiseling out the mortise for the beam to go through. It needs a little fine tuning on the fit. I am going to have to make sure that the beam is square with both faces I plan on using a xacto knife blade instead of th...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #2: Mallet - 1, Glen - 1

Dear Saint Roy, I like you a lot more this week. Lots. Sincerely, Mallet Boy in PA ———————If you haven’t gotten a copy of the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking, do it today. That’s where this insanity all got started. But I’m telling you, I never could have launched into this if it weren’t for that article. They do a great job. Check them out. The second attempt with the hardwood turned out to be much ...

Hand cut Dove Tails, take 2

03-05-2012 06:38 PM by Chuck | 6 comments »

While everyone else at my house was napping yesterday I gave hand cut dove tails another try. This was my 2nd attempt. They aren’t the good, but they aren’t the worse I’ve seen. http://woodchucksworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/03/hand-cut-dove-tails-take-2.html

SAW CABINET #1: BUILDING MY TOY SAW A CABINET, OUTFEED TABLE, AND MORE

03-02-2012 10:03 PM by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

Fine Irwin's I'll Try Your Chisels!

02-28-2012 07:42 AM by Brad | 5 comments »

I’ve known for some time that my nameless chisel set would have to go. I’m not even sure where they came from but I have a sneaking suspicion they came from Harbor Freight because the look like they have one foot in the grave and their edge crumbles like dry dirt at the mere sight of mortise that needs cleaning up. So while at Rockler for their “Brown Bag” sale last Saturday I picked up this set of 4 chisels for $29.99. The overall construction seems solid. My plan is ...

Overthinking woodworking

02-17-2012 04:04 PM by BerBer5985 | 19 comments »

I’ve had the great opportunity to watch Paul Seller’s series of DVD’s along with read a lot of Christopher Schwartz’s material and being a newcomer, I’ve come to the conclusion that when most of start out, we tend to over think everything. We have had it drilled into our heads in everything we’ve done up until this point that we must MEASURE everything we do. If I’ve learned anything so far, and I’m glad I’m learning it now, is that MEAS...
