Dovetail Pen Turning #4: Success!!

01-14-2010 07:14 PM by SNSpencer | 4 comments »

Dovetail Pen Progress Success!! It took a few more tries but I finally have a set of pen blanks worth of being assembled into a final writing instrument. Some more issues that I have run into along the way are: Working with Padauk and CA glue – I found that when I was applying the CA glue to the blanks to stabilize the chipout that the glue would pick up the color from the Padauk. This in effect became a “stain” that would penetrate the Maple and start to turn it pink. I solved this ...

Dovetail Pen Turning #3: Picture Progress Update

01-14-2010 06:31 PM by SNSpencer | 1 comment »

Dovetail Pen Progress Pictures. OK, I managed to get a few pictures off the camera. Just bare with me, this is my “garage” camera so the resolution/quality is not top notch. The three following picture are: #1 – My collection of dovetailed pen blanks. End to end joints for the dovetails. #2 – A closeup of some of the chipout I experienced along the joint seams. You can see the CA glue that I used to solve this issue in the picture. #3 – Finished pen blanks, first attempt. In this pi...

A journey into the workshop. #37: Lathe stuff growing, need to get busy with the stand cabinet...

So… it started out pretty simple, a Central Machinery #34706 lathe, basically a Jet JWL1236 clone, and the 8 pc Benjamin’s best chisels found their way into my shop… I got a few spindles turned, got pretty good with rolling beads and coves, nothing too serious, just having fun for now… But… I wanted to try bowls… Start with faceplate turning, that worked pretty well for THICK bottomed bowls, but after the first time of mashing the bowl gouge into the ...

Table Saw Station #1: Getting Inspired

01-11-2010 05:38 AM by MDeSchepper | 4 comments »

Well my wife has heard a few complaints I’ve had with my current table saw. Okay, a few years ago after we bought our first house I wanted to start woodworking as a hobby. I only dabbled the little amount in middle school. After that high school and college I never really did any woodworking. So for Christmas one year after in the new house (and a garage I might add) my parents bought me a craftsman table saw. See below:(image courtesy of It had a great benefit of...

Kharma, and my thrift store state of mind......

01-09-2010 09:55 PM by Hooligan__j | 6 comments »

A few weeks ago, I was driving by a local thrift store, when I saw this: I wanted to take a closer look, and so quickly (and extremely legally) I turned around and headed back to the store. I love thrift stores, as they appeal to my innate desire to be a (as my wife so lovingly refers to me) spendthrift penny pinching lout. But anyway, I digress. I drove up to the store, and took a look at the cabinet, and my initial thought (the one that made me very safely, and legally turn around) ...

Building a Door

01-09-2010 04:14 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

All of the woodwork in our house is cherry except for the front door, which is oak. I assume the builder used an oak front door because the outside portion is exposed to the elements and cherry would not hold up well. I have an idea for building a new door. I would like to laminate oak and cherry so I have oak on the outside and cherry on the inside. This would be a panel door and I would make laminations for both the frame pieces and the panels. I would finish the outside with a s...
